I am what you would probably call a long time Duran fan. I liked to listen and of course to look at Duran from the age of 11 in 1982. In 1985 I tried to meet Duran…..just going around to what I thought were the addresses of various members of the band. I kept a diary from 1986 and thought it may be interesting to write them up in a blog not only for the memories but to preserve the pages forever in cyberspace!
And the picture of the red book above is of the actual of diary. Yes it has Care Bear stickers on it. But this was the 80’s. And Care Bears were cute.
This blogged diary contains not only the words from the actual diary pages, but my commentary on it too. This diary blog is not only about one of the best British bands in the world, Duran Duran. It is also a social commentary about what it was like to grow up in London in the 80’s and seeing celebrities on every street corner!
This picture is of the back pages of my diary where I had written the names of all the other celebrities I had met or seen. Believe it or not I am glad that I scribbled these down as for the most part I had forgotten that I had seen/met a lot of them.
