Biography

Nick Rhodes (Born Nicholas James Bates, June 8th 1962) is a British Musician and producer. He is probably most well known for being the Keyboardist in bands such as Duran Duran, The Devils and Arcadia.

The Devils is the name of an electronic pop project formed by Nick Rhodes and Stephen Duffy.
The first incarnation of Duran Duran in 1978 included Rhodes as keyboardist, John Taylor on guitar and Duffy as songwriter/vocalist and bassist (along with Simon Colley). This lineup performed live for almost a year before Duffy and Colley left the band.

Duffy moved on to a solo career and The Lilac Time, and Duran Duran eventually went on to super stardom, fame, and fortune with drummer Roger Taylor, guitarist Andy Taylor and singer Simon Le Bon.
In 1999, Duffy came across an old tape recording of a live Duran Duran concert from a 1979 show. Shortly afterwards, Rhodes and Duffy met by chance at a fashion show, and began talking about the old music. They decided it might be fun to re-record some of those original, dark, art-school, pre-Le Bon Duran Duran songs.
A few months later they took to the studio, using vintage analog instruments but modern production techniques to recreate the early Duran Duran sound. The lyrics remained unchanged.

He has also produced albums for both Kajagoogoo and The Dandy Warhols.
