Duran Duran: 'We were in Paris on Friday night'

Duran Duran said the attacks on Paris came as a "terrible shock" to them as they were in the city playing a gig on Friday night.

Rock band Eagles of Death Metal were playing at the Bataclan concert hall in Paris when militant gunmen stormed the venue.

The two groups have a connection as the American rock band have recorded a cover version of Duran Duran's Save A Prayer. Proceeds are being donated to the Paris aid efforts.

Duran Duran frontman Simon Le Bon and bassist John Taylor spoke to BBC Breakfast about their new album, Paper Gods.
