On this date in 1981, Duran Duran played at the Odeon in Birmingham, UK. This, of course, was the summer that John Taylor started his autobiography with as it was the first time that their shows included serious screaming! Clearly, those attendees knew that this band was something special!
Speaking of something special, five years ago today, I had the opportunity to witness some of Simon’s…err…dancing. The song was Skin Trade. The venue was in Orange County, California. Before I post the clip, I’ll be perfectly honest here. This is exactly how I want to remember Simon LeBon!! After all, I can’t remember laughing SO hard at a concert before or since!!!!
We tease because we love!
