  1. I’ve got this in vinyl version! (And I had their posters all over my walls and ceilings – especially Roger Taylor – always did like a drummer 😃)

    1. So many Duran Duran fans. You are a fan and collector.You know Viola, it’s all about keeping their good music alive and the precious memories that comes with it. AOC is enjoying the journey with you! Many thanks for your comment!!

  2. After the 60’s I was a bit disappointed with most of the music of the 70’s but I was happy with the years of the New Romantics (being an old one myself), good, music, great lyrics and some eye popping costumes too.
