A fan since 1982, Waist High had the pleasure of seeing the original 5 members of Duran Duran perform Thursday night at Portland's Rose Garden.

This was a first. I had tickets to a show in 1983 but I recall getting grounded for something and not being able to go. John Taylor was always my favorite, but Thursday the majority of the love in the house went to Nick Rhodes. And it came equally from men as well as women.

As we wrap up a week of only drunkenness posts, this ties in because my female date for the evening got us 86'ed from a restaurant after the show for drunkenness.
