from one Duran Duran fan to another ;)
Tammy's post here last Friday brought back some fun memories.
Before U2, there was Duran Duran. I was a HUGE fan and literally had my room wallpapered in their photos from magazines and posters. My sister was thrilled since we had to share a room @@ :)
Anyway, Tammy did a layout about how she met one of her friends by becoming pen pals because of Duran Duran through Tiger Beat magazine.
I also had a DD pen pal through Tiger Beat, but we didn't stay friends.
And I was never able to go to one of their concerts. My parents wouldn't let me because I was only 13 the first time they came through. Let me tell you I cried buckets of tears the night of that concert - pre-teen drama for sure!
But I have more than made up for that loss with the thirteen U2 concerts I have been to here, all over the states and in Dublin! Maybe it's because missing that Duran Duran concert back in the early 80's was so traumatic at the time ;) And when DD came here a few years ago, I thought about going but the time had kind of passed. Although with really loving their newest album, I think I would go if they came back!
Anyway, great post, Tammy! And thanks for the walk down memory lane :)
