Behind The Music

They were pin-up pop idols, who seduced the world with elegance, style and new wave glamour. Duran Duran were five English heart-throbs who packaged good looks, catchy pop hits and exotic music videos to create a global phenomenon. The frenzy of their fans recalled the passion of Beatlemania. But by the year 2000, only Nick and Simon remained, and it was all or nothing when the five original members reformed. The gamble reaped huge rewards, but Andy Taylor left the band for a second time amid acrimonious recriminations. This documentary looks at the wild boys who defined the sound and vision of pop music for more than a generation – Duran Duran, the story behind the music.
