Duran Duran icons

Today, inspired by chantal87, I made up some Duran Duran icons. I spent 3 or 4 years utterly obsessed with the band (and especially bassist John Taylor) in the mid-80s (and even wore clothing similar to theirs, had my hair cut similar to theirs, dyed my bangs similar to John's, named my cat Nigel -- which is John Taylor's middle name -- etc.), so it was fun to go searching back through old photos and reminisce.

Apparently, the band is back together now and was touring recently, but I have no interest in the photos of them as wrinkly, paunchy old men. In my mind, they will always be leather-pant-wearing 20-somethings with silly hairdos, producing groundbreaking videos (many with Russell Mulcahy) and making teenyboppers scream.

I don't think there are many Duranies on my flist, but if some of you out there have a Duran Duran urge, feel free to use any of these icons! Unfortunately, LJ seems to be fucking up the whole icon system today, so I can't upload one of these and use it, but I think you can figure it out from here.
