Description

No band epitomizes the eighties, a decade of stylish and absurd excesses, as much as Duran Duran. Certainly no band inspires the same dizzying range of emotional responses-adoration, lust, delight, confusion, contempt-as those five beautiful and cocksure boys from England, who burst onto the scene like a glitter-encrusted wrecking ball at the start of the decade and held the public's attention in a vise grip. Still (mostly) together and going strong, they've endured because no one could ever quite forget them, even when the end of the eighties threatened to turn them into relics of an era that overstayed its welcome. Duran Duran are celebrities par excellence: glamorous, ridiculous, larger than life, and absolutely hilarious. With wit and affection, Duranalysis tackles the Duran Duran phenomenon. Duranalysis is composed of a series of insightful, informative, irreverent essays encompassing the complete history of Duran Duran, from their inauspicious origins in working-class Birmingham through the crazy chaos of megafame in the eighties to their lower-profile but still glamorous present. Welcome to Duranalysis. It's going to be a wild ride.
