Rs worth of rock 'n' roll anecdotes Andy tells of his time in the band The Power Station and explains why Duran Duran reformed with its original line up in 2003 But Wild Boy is also a moving story on a human level as Andy describes how the pressures of fame took a terrible personal toll on him and his family Moving from hilarious to harrowing at the turn of a page Wild Boy is a must read for anyone who lived through the 1980s or who cares about music. When I read some of the comments on this book at it looked to me like this book was going to be a bitchfest and finger pointer about everything that went wrong in one of the biggest acts of the 80 s Duran Duran I was very skeptical about getting this for the following reasonIn highschool I was an absolute KISS freak Ate lived and breathed the band and they had a magic on stage that was a beautiful thing something that was like a place in your heart that made life joyful Then Gene Simmons released his autobiography KISS and Makeup and within the time it took to read the book he destroyed the magic and beauty of the band unmercifully for me From that point on KISS was decimated in my eyes I became a casual listener of anything they released afterwards but this this special thing that I felt a part of was dead Then about a year ago I read original drummer Peter Criss s autobigraphy and it was a total bitchfest from someone who should not be throwing stones at anyone Between Peter and Gene I don t even bother looking in the KISS section any when I go to music stores Sometimes private things should be kept privateDuran Duran was the second major rock act I got into before discovering metal in the 80 s and like KISS they had a magic all their own that just pulsed through my body every time I listened to them so I was seriously on the fence about reading this BUT after having such a wonderful experience reading Duran Duran bassist John Taylor s autobiography I figured I would give Andy a chanceI am very happy to say that the customer comments on are very inaccurate Andy gave what I felt was an honest account of being in a band that was dubbed The Fab Five From their meager start in England to worldwide fame that led them into the usual vices of the rock and roll lifestyle Andy is very on point about everything and I never felt like he was pointing fingers at anyone he merely described certain situations with DD keyboardist Nick Rhodes that were less than savory but at the same time he had no problem taking responsibility for his own misgivings and faults that led to Duran Duran s eventual breakup and reunion in the early 2000 s after which he mysteriously left again due to friction within the band By the same token he also spoke of the magic that he formed with Nick Rhodes that helped define the Duran Duran sound and gave much credit to Nick He also spoke very candidly about his family and wife of 25 years both of which encountered some pretty big obstacles in life I thought this book was very endearing and I m glad I read itI think the only thing I would have liked to see was Andy talk about his guitars which models he used throughout the years how he dealt with an ever changing musical atmosphere what kind of amps he used etc but that is just the guitarist in me talking

    When I was 16 it was all about Duran Duran They were so glamorous They drank champagne on yachts They dated models that I could never hope to be like The way they pronounced D'jeurahn D'jeurahn was like music to my Midwestern ears As I grew older and got to college my tastes grew sophisticated and I became a fan of other

    I was an obsessed screaming drooling Duranie in my early mid teens and Andy's autobiography reminded me of all those idolised good times as well as filling me in on the bad times I was mostly unaware of as a suealing fangirl He writes from the heart his passion for music his mistakes his adored wife and family lovely to know he's still with Tracey and of course his life as a member of the world's biggest pop

    I was the biggest Duranie ever I made deals with God if he'd just let The Reflex video be #1 on MTV I'd do this or that Now years later I've had the opportunity to meet JT several times I read his book and now Andy's and I laugh at how I could have been so in love as a teenager with these obnoxious self absorbent people
