We even went as far as going to Falmouth in Cornwall when Simon's boat Drum capsized in the fastnet race, just in the faint hope of seeing him.... When they re-formed and toured a couple of years ago, we were there screaming like we were 15 all over again!
So this weekend has been a little surreal, Friday night I got home from work late, flicked through the TV and found a programme on BBC4 documenting the iconic Rio album with interviews with the band etc, followed by a concert of there's.... it didn't know whether to feel old that Duran Duran were on BBC4 or that BBC4 were getting a bit retro! Then today at work (detailed post to follow) I met the lovely Mr Le Bon and his family... surreal moment sitting drinking mulled wine & munching mince pies with the guy that used to adourn my walls!... an all-round lovely family, Yasmin is stunning, Amber, Saffron & Tallulah are great girls and Simon was still yummy!
