29th March 1986 – Hi Ho Hi Ho it’s off to Nick’s we go….


Went to Nick’s again and met another Duran fan. She was an Andy fan.

We waited outside Nick’s for ages. Just as we decided to give up and started walking back up his road to go home we saw his car go past. So we ran after it!

Nick just ran into his house. But Julie-anne stopped and talked to us. She said she had recieved our pressy. She said that it had ‘frightened the cleaning lady’!

We saw him again, he looked at us from the back seat of his car and probably thought we were crazy!


So we went again to Nick’s house. This was how it worked. We had seen Nick a few times now so we got it into our heads that we should go to Nick’s whenever we had a spare minute! And we would spend a lot of time literally just hanging around. We would walk up and down the same stretch of street. We would go to the local shops as quick as we could to get refreshments, just in case we missed something. We would NOT go to the toilet!!! We would just chat aimlessly. Take pictures – of just the outside of Nick’s house. It really was quite mindless at times. It was a lot better at studios as there were more fans to chat to.

And we probably did look crazy – tearing up the street after Nick’s car like our lives depended on it. It was no wonder he just leapt straight into his house. I don’t think I ever ran after a car again after that. All I kept picturing was what the heck must we have looked like pegging it after his car – I mean really look like? Scary that’s what. I never ran after cars. Just walked. Quite a quick walk, but walked all the same!

Long time Duran fan. Followed them since 1985 - and that means physically going to see them! I kept a diary from 1986 and thought it may be funny to write them up on a blog. And the profile picture 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. View all posts by thedurandiaries
