Well, this turned into quite an interesting year. I was asked to go and meet the Berrow brothers, who managed Duran Duran. I met Paul Berrow and a couple of the band at Air London studios. They were putting the final touches to the Rio album. I sat down in the canteen with them and they asked me who I had been tour managing. I started to tell them a little about my touring to date and the band members were huge Cockney Rebel fans. Well they asked there and then if I would be their tour manager and that was that!!!!
