“Back in the 80s, my big sister was a hardcore Duran Duran fan. She was walking home from school with her friends, in Blackheath, when a big fat Rolls Royce pulls up. The window winds down:

‘Hello girls, can you help me with some directions?’ It was Tony Hadley of Spandau Ballet . Without hesitation, my sister said ‘Fuck off you wanker, your band’s shit’

“Hadley drove off. that much is true.”

Personally I was a fan of Spandau Ballet and Duran Duran – I remember labouring for hours over a pencil sketch of Tony Hadley. Not that “True” song though, ew, give me “Gold” any day!
