Milestones: Simon Le Bon is 52 today; watch Duran Duran play ‘Notorious’ in 1987

Today is Duran Duran frontman Simon Le Bon’s 52nd birthday, and to mark the occasion — and with a tip of the hat to the current batch of reissues — we present this fabulous clip of DD playing its single “Notorious” on an Italian television show in 1987. It’s worth watching just for the geeked-out fans in the beginning, and the amazing ’80s graphics floating behind the band.
