John Taylor of Duran Duran presented with a copy of Mr. Peabody's Real Sound of Chicago and Beyond as thanks for support!

On Friday, October 21st, Duran Duran played Chicago on second leg of their North American tour. Paula Harris of Groove Parlor Tv presented bassist John Taylor with a copy of The Real Sound of Chicago + Beyond as a thank you for his kind words posted to his twitter & facebook accounts about Mr. Peabody Records' latest release. DJs Mark Grusane & Mike Cole felt it necessary to personally thank John for his support of their project, as he has 27,000+ twitter followers worldwide and posts regularly about his record shopping/digging experiences when on tour with Duran Duran. As a huge fan of the TK Disco label, Loft Classics and an avid indie record store supporter, he was quite impressed by the RSoC+Beyond listen links posted on BBE's page. Truly humbled by the love. 

from John Taylor - Duran Duran - October 21, 2011 Chicago:
"It's an absolute pleasure to support such an amazing project and to support independent record shops like Mr. Peabody Records."

John's retweet on Twitter and Tweetdeck. The Real Sound of Chicago + Beyond SOLD OUT in Chicago!
