Summary
Duran Duran rose to fame with a string of hits such as "Rio,""Hungry Like the Wolf," and "The Reflex." With Simon Le Bon as their frontman, they were the defining pop act of the 1980s, but Andy Taylor, the enigmatic lead guitarist, is widely acknowledged to have been their musical driving force. Then, at the very height of their achievement in 1985, Duran Duran imploded. Now Andy charts every moment of Duran Duran's roller-coaster rise from their early days as club musicians through to international superstardom. He reveals the truth about the allegations of drug abuse and wild hedonism that dogged them. He captures the glamour and excitement of the band's video shoots and the opulence of their world tours. And, moving from hilarious to harrowing at the turn of a page, he describes how the pressures of fame took a terrible personal toll on him and his family.--From publisher description
