The Week in DD History: Sept 5-11, 2021

Hard to believe we are already in September, and that this very week marks two years since the last time many of us saw one another in person at The Cosmopolitan Hotel in Las Vegas. It is difficult for me not feel very melancholy this week, as the end is just not in sight yet. So, before I get too sad over things I cannot control, let’s take a look back on happier times! -R

By Daily Duranie

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.
