My husband has been telling me that I need to write a book about all of the 80's musicians I've met, either accidentally or on purpose. Since I've never taken the time to sit down and write about my escapades during my younger years, I decided to start a tumblr blog to post the photos of all the bands I've met over the years, tell the stories behind the photos, and share the ticket stubs. Duran Duran has been my drug of choice since 1984, but Depeche Mode and The Cure rank closely behind. I have loved and met many more bands over the years, some popular and some obscure. I was never a "groupie" I never slept with the band or the roadies...my thrill came from finally meeting the bands I idolized after waiting for hours on end, or in some cases, literally bumping into my favorite musicians as they walked down the street or stepped off an elevator. Now you can share my my Un-Ordinary world.

 

I need to go to Portland, Oregon JUST to go to this restaurant!!!!! Check out their menu - the name of every dish has something to do with a band or music. http://www.friedegglove.com/

I don’t watch It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia, but I really like this gif because this clip was filmed in Philadelphia at The Italian Market, a big, open-air shopping district in Philadelphia. I need to start watching this show.

what does a person gotta do to build up the kind of karma that leads to meeting a band member on the street 

I don’t know if it is karma, incredible coincidence, or being in the right place at the right time, but it has happened to me on many occasions…Paul Young, Simon Gallup, Kevin Bacon, Jay Aston from Gene Loves Jezebel, A-Ha…all were in different places too, Philadelphia, London, Toronto

Yep, emotionally blackmailed by a cartoon snail. I’m such a sucker for cute things.

Backstage with Duran Duran on the Dilate Your Mind Tour at the Mann Music Center - Friday, July 23, 1993. The only time I’ve ever had an actual backstage pass at a Duran concert. I still can’t remember how or why I ended up backstage at this show, and I don’t have the actual pass from that night. I also have no idea who the other girl in the picture is. Unfortunately, the only copy of this picture I have is a Polaroid, so the quality is crap.
