A Forbes Interview with Simon Le Bon of Duran Duran
Over the years, perhaps no industry has endured as much change as the music industry. And Simon Le Bon has certainly seen it all over the last four decades. The rise and fall of MTV. From 80s rock to 90’s grunge. From Napster to Spotify. From touring freely, to cancelling tours due to a global pandemic.
Chair of the Forbes CMO Network Jenny Rooney sits down with Simon Le Bon to discuss what it takes to stay relevant in an ever-changing world, how Duran Duran continues to thrive, and how his sound design agency SYN, a WPI Partner, continues to evolve as it celebrates is 30th anniversary.
