Thirty years in, and I'm still a Duran Duran fan. So I just had to read this book when I saw it on the library shelf. It could have been worse, considering that most of the material is lifted from other articles. Some of the quotes I actually remember from magazines I read back in the day. It's very gossipy, and probably not altogether factual, but I still had fun reading it.

I especially love the bits on Nick Rhodes my fave member & how he was always the creative, arty & playful one keeping the band going. It feels a bit rushed towards the end but no better place to learn abt those 80s pop excesses than this book. Of course u need to listen to their albums & ...more
