I’d just gotten the news that Duran Duran might be breaking up. Tony Thompson who I knew from Chic and who I would later work with me with David Bowie was very proud of his newly appointed position as drummer with Power Station. So When I got the call from Simon Le Bon to join Arcadia, I was flattered that they would think of me to play with them. Even then I had high hopes that their split would be temporary. Nick Rhode was my favorite as he was extremely respectful to me, addressing me as Mr. Alomar and all that. I thought he was cool, but I quickly told him that all the formalities were unneesarry. We got on really well and the Album was pretty much straight ahead. I did some great work on “Election Day“, “The Flame”, “The Promise” and “Goodbye, Forever”. The next year Duran Duran re-united and continued their odyssey together. Much to the joy of all their fans. It was great to be part of that iconic groups legacy.
