The elevator door of a storage unit in Bellevue, Wash. glides open to reveal a 10- by-20 storage unit flooded with Duran Duran memorabilia. Buttons, magazines, games and even an unopened bottle of hot sauce from 1985 all display the faces of the band and are spread out on a table waiting to greet whoever is there to pay a visit. Shiny racks stacked with dozens of large boxes filled with posters of varying sizes line the walls. Every item has been carefully saved and everything in this unit is handled with care. The memorabilia is owned by Andy Golub. To him and other Duranies — a nickname for fans of Duran Duran — this is known as "the archives."
