After the Bravery and the Killers feuded about who influenced who, there's seems to be another controversy brewing that involves the Bravery. Read this and then read this. Duran Duran announced last week that the Bravery will be opening for them in Birmingham on May 28.
But it appears the Bravery's Sam Endicott is not a big Duran Duran fan. In fact, he dislikes the band's music and does not appreciate the comparison with the '80s pop group.
When I asked him about the comparison between the Bravery and bands like Duran Duran and New Order he said: "No artist likes to be compared to others. You always think you're special and unique and all that bullshit. But at least they are comparing us to good bands instead of shitty ones. The Duran Duran comparison is my least favorite, because I don't like that band at all."
And you're opening for them? Oops. Let's see if Simon sets him straight backstage.
