Man these questions just keep getting weirder and harder!!
When I was 12 years old, I discovered a band called Duran Duran. Their music was catchy and their videos were cutting edge and they were all delicious. Delicious to my budding hormones at least.
I was a diehard Durannie (what Duran Duran female fans are called) for a solid 5 years.

At first, I was passionately in love with Simon Le Bon.. he was roguish and fun!

Then it was the dreamy Nick Rhodes – who wore more makeup than I did.
Then it was the brooding John Taylor, the tall dark and handsome one…

This is the poster I had in my room during these years.. DREAMY!!!

I can’t say that they got me through rough times, but they had a good bit of influence in my life. Those years were years of a lot upheaval in my life – family and personal illnesses, family disagreements, my parents in the nasty part of their marriage, etc.

They were a kind of stabilizing force in my life. I could be having a bad day and I could go in my room, turn on some music and get away from the crap.

I don’t know why I stopped being a Durannie.. maybe because that’s about the time the guys in the group started going off on solo projects?

Maybe I moved on to something else? Like the luscious Trent Rezor… mmmmm… I’ve had a “thing” for tall, dark and handsome for a long time… LOL

One thought on “Day 13: A band or artist that has gotten you through some tough times

  1. I had that same poster… and was a John Taylor girl from thet get-go.

    I actually met all the guys at Six Flags over GA. I was working the Carousel (don't be overwhelmed there, mkay)and they actually RODE it. I can still tell you which horse Simon and John were on.

    yeah… creepy. LOL

    Thanks for stopping by my blog. I can't wait to catch up with yours!
