If member serves me correctly, there was so much conflict between Andy and the rest of the band, they accepted they would never be able to work as a band again.
    Yeah, I like that too.
    I hate that I know this, but I think that Andy played with some of them at some point again as well. They've just been scarce as the original 5.

    Wow! Now, there's a name I haven't heard in a long time. I went to see him perform when I was about 18.

    I did.

    I had posters on every wall, on the ceiling and taped to the top of my dresser. A massive hail storm hit our town in 1986 and busted out all of our windows. My posters were ruined. In fact, some of them were two blocks away in the neighbor's yard.

    I really don't think any of them aged very well. And I didn't know until recently that John had a major drug problem in the 80's. He was my favorite. I just knew I was gonna be his baby mama. LOL!

    I was so obsessed. I also loved Arcadia the Le Bon/Rhodes/Roger Taylor side project.

    Me, too!! But I remember how much I loved it when they put the old band back together and did "No Ordinary World". That reminds me of moving to Miami Beach. My boyfriend got me the DVD of their videos for Xmas a few years ago. I was pissed because there are some things missing from the original "video" I had in the 80's. Mainly "Waiting for the Nightboat". I loved that video.

    Angelias!! You had the shoes and the fedora!! LOVE it! I'm betting the neighbors knew where the posters came from!!!

    Yeah it was traumatic losing most of my posters. Do you know how many Tiger Beat and Bop magazines I had to buy to get all of those?

    Oh man! Now that I'm envious of. They never played near us, but then again by 18 I was seeing people like Psychodelic Furs & stuff like that...?

    I think that I'd kind of moved on by then, but I think I'm a bit older, plus the music scene here was a little different possibly? My bf at 16-17 was friends with Steve Strange & the rest of the Blitz boys so I hear about a lot of new stuff very quickly, for example he saw Patsy Kensit sing there when she was 16...

    Did you ever get New Styles New Sounds? It was sort of the forerunner of ID & The Face magazine... I found a load in the container recently.

    It was only David Sylvian (not Japan) so don't be too envious. This was the late 80's so Japan was gone for a while. Still, he was great. Sat on a stool in the middle of the stage for a while and played guitar. He was beautiful

    Agreed. My first ever 'album' was Seven and the Ragged Tiger. I went to see them on the David Bowie tour, they opened along with the Georgia Satellites. I'd love to see them again. Some of those songs are embedded in my body.

    No, weep with sorrow for the poor music taste displayed in this thread.

    Once went to a Duran Duran concert, watched OMD as the opening act and left.
