Celebrity Fans - Roger Taylor (Duran Duran)

Celebrity Fans - Roger Taylor (Duran Duran)

Brown has an interview on the official site with Roger Taylor from Duran Duran who wanted to play for the mighty claret and blue.

Taylor said: 'Villa mean everything to me. I come with my dad still. He used to bring me when I was a kid - about four-years-old. We used to sit on the Holte End. He used to sit me on the bar and I remember being freezing cold throughout my childhood watching the Villa. But the games warmed me up! I started in the days of Charlie Aitken, the record appearance maker who was the crux of the team. Colin Withers was the goalkeeper. That was my first ambition - being the Villa keeper."

I can confirm that Taylor is a regular reader of Vital Villa... well, I can`t really, but hey, no one can disprove my claim can they?!?!?
