About the book[]

The book follows chronologically all of the band members careers, from the foundation of Duran Duran in 1978 to 2006. The 14 chapters analyse the musical and social innovation of the band, revealing unknown trivia about the writing process, the career moves and the interaction of the members with the culture of the times. There are exclusive interviews with producers (Nile Rodgers, Daniel Abraham), directors (Peter Kagan, Paula Greif), and designers (Frank Olinsky, Malcolm Garrett) which leads the reader through a creativity universe that does not only documents the career of Duran Duran, but chronocycles popular music and the history of the tendencies since the 1980s.
