30th June 2011
John Simon and Roger all came at the same time, so a chance for me at least to have a rare pic with all three of them. No Nick in sight sadly. Got Simon to sign an old book of mine, as a joke really for my daughter. John wanted to have a flick through it though first, bringing back memories. He saw my daughter’s name written down and said ‘Oh you and Roger have the same daughter’s names’. We don’t and we had had this conversation years before but of course JT wouldn’t remember.
Joked with Simon that he’d be back on 14 year old girls bedroom walls again soon. To which he replied ‘Where I SHOULD be!’ Laughingly.
Went for a coffee and returned to the studio a while later. John’s driver was fixing a flat tire on his car so chatted for a while. Gela arrived but none of us went to talk to her, unsure of what her reaction would be to a bunch a middle aged women, waiting around for her husband. She probably thinks we are demented. Which we are obviously.
When they finally emerged Nick came out of the door first which was a surprise as we didn’t see him going in. Had a chat with him about his virtual 2nd life thing and about the tour. (Simon hasn’t had a voice since May) He suggested without actually saying that the European tour may be off.
Would like to think that after 25+ going to see this band there would be more camaraderie between us and the band. Sometimes, well, there’s just. Nothing. Feeling a bit like I really have stop all this.
Notes about this Entry
Seems like my love affair with Duran is petering out, doesn’t it? I do have really bad days, months even. I haven’t done this diary for a good while as Duran simply just got on my nerves! I am sure I will have nicer entries coming up. But don’t count on it!
