There are some things you never get over and this is one of those things for me.  I’ve been a fan of Duran Duran for all of my adult life (dating back to my childhood) and their music has been a constant source of inspiration for me for 30 years.  Did I just say that out loud?!  To think that I met Jane Fonda, whose film “Barbarella” inspired the name of this band a few weeks ago,  and now this, sort of makes my head explode with delight!  I’ve seen and met Duran Duran a bunch of times over the years, but all in the “pre-camera” days.  June 20, 2012 brought my “Dur-man-ie” fandom into the new millennium as I was able to get photos with the Fab Four!  Duran Duran is notorious (pun intended) for getting mobbed by hordes of ‘Duranies’ and one thing that I think is so cool of them (in the experiences I’ve had over the years) is that they try and be as accommodating as possible to their fans in the form of signing autographs, chatting with die-hards, giving hugs and taking photos.

I meet a lot of celebrities, rock stars and artists and few are as iconic to me as Duran Duran.  I cannot express my gratitude enough to Simon LeBon, Nick Rhodes, John Taylor and Roger Taylor for an experience I will cherish forever!

It was John Taylor’s birthday and I wished him a happy birthday prior to this photo being taken.  He thanked me and was very nice as were the other guys.  Considering the mob-scene, I think I made out alright.

For once in my life, I am speechless, so I will leave it at “WOW!” and “Thank you Duran Duran for making my life so much better!”  Words cannot even express how much I love you.  Thank you!  Thank You! Thank You!
