Please add Nefer Suvio too...They've been together for 10 years, since 2011. So He isn't single! Nefer is an italian fashion designer and 40 years old.

Nick is okay but John is indeed the best piece of eye candy in DD!

I used to adore Nick back in the day. But I have to admit I think John is aging a lot better than Nick. Odd considering John was a heavy drug user.

I had no idea Nick discovered Kajagoogoo. Anyway, I always love his looks....very unique.

DDRoxNov 18, 2014

I agree with you, Erina. John's totally overrated. I even recall reading somewhere that Andy Warhol, a supposed Nick devotee, said back in the 80s that John was the most beautiful specimen of humanity, or something like that. Anyway, I never got what all the fuss was about with John. I also agree that Nick should start dating women in his age group and who are normal as opposed to these skinny as a bone heiresses.

ErinaNov 18, 2014

Nick married? Again? Nah! I don't think that's true. However, I want him to be happy, yet I wish I was his girlfriend. I for one think he's the best looking in Duran Duran and that he is also the nicest. I never saw the appeal of John Taylor. Especially now. I always thought he had bunny teeth and a rubbery face and he always seemed to believe his own press.'s hit or miss with him. Sometimes I like him, sometimes I don't. But Nick has always been my favorite Duran. I just wish he would learn to date women his own age.

I just read that Nick secretly married his live in girlfriend. ARGH!!!

LebraJun 21, 2014

I cannot fathom how Nick gets so many gorgeous girlfriends! Maybe it's because he's rich! But John is the one all the girlies want to this day! Myself included!

chubbygirlJun 4, 2014

I think Roger and Nick are the hottest in Duran Duran. But that's just me.

CakeGirlMay 7, 2014

Nick's a nice guy, but not nearly as handsome as John and Simon.

Nick you're a nice guy s'o cuddly! By:Ana Paula

BillieNov 4, 2013

Simon and John are both so overrated. They're not bad, but Nick...those eyes, that smile, that voice...why the heck does he get no love???
