Guitarist Andy Taylor quits Duran Duran

Written by: Staff

LONDON, Oct 27 (Reuters) Guitarist Andy Taylor has left Duran Duran, the veteran pop group said.

According to a statement on the band's Web site, Taylor quit the group last weekend, though the remaining four members -- Simon Le Bon, Nick Rhodes and John and Roger Taylor -- intend to carry on recording and performing as Duran Duran.

''As of last weekend we have dissolved our partnership and will be continuing as Duran Duran without Andy,'' said the statement.

''We have reached a point in our relationship with him where there is an unworkable gulf between us and we can no longer effectively function together.'' Fronted by Le Bon, Duran Duran was one of the biggest acts of the 1980s, before reforming five years ago.

''Although obviously disappointed and saddened about this, we are excited about the next chapter of the Duran Duran story and look forward to seeing you all soon,'' the statement added.

The band is scheduled to give a concert in Chicago in the United States later yesterday.
