It's been a while I think since I had my last Duran dream (that I can remember anyway). I've dreamed a lot lately about my Mom, Mother in Law and Nephew (all passed). Or normal things that would seem "mundane" and really mean nothing to anyone but me. But I digress...
Last night I dreamed that I was sitting side stage at the front (but ON the stage) at a concert of some sort. Andy was there playing with them (but was VERY young). At one point Roger walked past me to a chest of drawers behind me and started looking through it for drumsticks while the band was still playing. His cue was coming up, so he began throwing the sticks over his head in a panic looking for the right set. Either eventually finding them or in fear he'd miss his cue, he hot footed it back to his drum kit and resumed playing.
Later Simon, John and Andy were sitting on Roger's drum kit riser. I remember getting the feeling like they were filming one of those cheesy 1970's TV variety specials. John and Simon were sitting there with Andy on the riser reminiscing, when Simon took John's hand and said to him in a TOTAL cheesefest moment: "If I had to take this journey with anyone....I'm glad I took it with you Johnny". I remember John grinning big and then the two of them doing this fake mellow dramatic cry and embrace. Then John gave Simon a really big kiss on the lips and then them cracking up about it. I seem to recall Andy throwing his head back laughing like it was the funniest thing ever.
The next thing I can remember is standing in some sort of gift shop with John and discussing with him the North American tour. I got the impression (not sure why) that there was 8 or 10 Canadian dates alone (so this was a MAJOR tour). I also recall his appearance while still relatively the same age being different. His hair I think? Longer maybe? Or perhaps a throwback 80's style of some sort? I'm not sure. I just know it wasn't the same as it currently is. I remember I asked him if he was prepared for the North American girls. He grinned and said in a cocky tone "I think I can handle them". I smirked and said just as cheekily back "Are you sure there John? North American women are a whooooole different animal". To which he slipped his sunglasses on, licked his lips and smiled before he said "I'm counting on it".
