In 1982 I sat in my mother and father’s living room and watched a new band perform on television in the United States for their very first time. They played two songs and if I remember correctly those songs were, “Hungry Like The Wolf” & “Rio”… The camera showed each member of this band called, “Duran Duran” … I remember thinking how relatively good looking these guys are. As the camera panned to one particular member I believe I had experienced my very first jaw dropping moment. Those dark eyes, square jaw line, and his hair was long and styled better than mine could ever be… His name was John Taylor or JT … he was 22 years old and it was love at first sight…
I am dedicating this Throwback Thursday to John Taylor who is celebrating his 53rd Birthday today!
