The Week in DD History – March 7-13, 2021

Well, people of the world….we’ve made it to March. I am pretty sure that I’m not the only one spying the ending date of this week knowing that at least for us here in California, it will mark a year since we entered lockdown.

I can’t say I am celebrating. It is one hell of an anniversary, that is for sure, though.

Once upon a time, there were two Duran Duran fans. One named Amanda, the other named Rhonda. Over many vodka tonics, they would laugh about the idea of one day writing a book about their fan experiences. While that manuscript is still being composed...Rhonda thought they should write a blog. (What was she THINKING?!) Lo and behold: The Daily Duranie was born.
