Sing Blue Silver



Not to create overkill on Duran Duran, but my personal fave onscreen event for them is "Sing Blue Silver," a documentary made during their "Seven and the Ragged Tiger" tour of 1984. It's actually available on DVD right now. In same ways, the band members are so hopelessly playing up to the camera that it seems campy in almost a "Spinal Tap" way. You'll particularly enjoy the scenes with the band's road manager, Spy Matthews. "A scoreboard 50 feet off the floor? You must be mad!!"

Even if you have even lukewarm interest in the Duran Duran, this is a must-see rental. (Have you seen it, Gina? It is -- dare i say -- a classic. Especially when Simon can't find his wristbands.)
