The other day the phone rang and it was Duran Duran. And they were all, “Yo, Bossy, come to our concert.”
Okay, Duran Duran didn’t call, but those representing Duran Duran’s social media outreach team called, where called equals someone emailed Bossy.
The result is the same: Duran Duran is giving Bossy two tickets to their upcoming Philadelphia show, and all Bossy owes them in return is to sit in their audience! That and write about it on her blog! Which is a coincidence, because that’s what Bossy is doing!
The first thing Bossy should tell you is she never owned any Duran Duran records growing up. Mostly because Bossy was grown up by the time Duran Duran carved their spot on MTV.
The next thing Bossy should tell you is just because Bossy didn’t own any Duran Duran records, that didn’t prevent her from knowing every Duran Duran song. This is because Bossy kind of liked Duran Duran. Even if her boyfriend at the time, and every boyfriend since, poked incessant fun at Bossy for this musical predicament.
The next thing Bossy should tell you is she didn’t even know Duran Duran was currently on tour! But they are! Which is a lucky thing since Bossy is going to be in an audience prepared to see them! Click here for all of the upcoming Duran Duran tour dates.
Bossy has approximately thirty hours to prepare for her role as Duran Duran audience member, and so naturally Bossy will dedicate forty of those hours to thinking about him:
He’s Duran Duran’s bassist John Taylor.
Simon Le Bon, Nick Rhodes, Roger Taylor, Andy Taylor, and the other handful of Taylors in Duran Duran aside, John Taylor wins for cutest.
And when it comes to selecting the cutest boy in a band, Bossy has her doctorate. In fact, consider this Bossy’s seminar in Cutest 80s Band Mate. Pay attention, this is going to be on the test. Shall we?
