Vision Collision were a late 1970s pop/rock band. Two of their members were Terry Lilley, who played bass, and Andy Wickett, who sang lead vocals; he would later become the lead singer of Duran Duran. Vision Collision never released any material.

With Duran DuranEdit

Terry Lilley, who had previously been a member of punk band Dennis & the Din Makers, formed Vision Collision with singer Andy Wickett and other musicians. They borrowed their equipment and rehearsal space from Duran Duran, playing in Wickett's room at Cheapside, Birmingham where Duran Duran also rehearsed (Stephen Duffy's band, The Hawks, played downstairs on the veranda).

Vision Collision were an opening act for Duran Duran at the now-defunct Star Club in Birmingham in 1979, one of their first ever performances. Entrance fees were only 50p. After the gig, Andy Wickett would eventually become Duran Duran's lead vocalist, while Terry Lilley would form pop band Terry and Gerry, effectively breaking Vision Collision up.
