Here is our February Fan of the Month! Here’s Vixie!
When did you become a fan?
I became a casual fan in the 80’s. Was more of a Wham! Fan back in the day. Started following the band more seriously in 1989 and has been ongoing since then.
Why did you become a fan?
I went through some times and their music was always there for me.
What drew you to the band?
Their looks, music and fashion!
How do you participate in the fandom?
I am the only licensed “duranie” in the state of NY.
I have a huge poster and memorabilia collection. I have been to 30 some Duran Duran concerts and attend fan meet ups. I was DJ Vixie at the Duran Duran universe in second life.
What do you like best about being in the Duran fan community?
The life long friendships!
Do you have a favorite concert experience?
The Ritz at Webster Hall. I met my 2 best friends there at the vip party.

Meeting nick in an elevator at Casino Niagara. It was just so random and Nick was awesome.

This is awesome Vixie ! It was nice finding out how you became a DD fan and I love that you are the only license Duranie in NY…. I think I will be the only one in Ontario, Canada (if I can get my plate one day, lol).
