With groundbreaking music videos and chart hits like “Girls on Film,” “Hungry Like a Wolf” and “Rio,” Duran Duran cemented their place as a leading band in the 1980s New Romance music scene.
With over 100 million records sold, they remain one of the UK’s most popular bands and their fan base also spans the globe.
Contains hundreds of restored Denis O’Regan photographs taken primarily during the North American and Japanese legs of the band’s 1984 Sing Blue Silver tour. Carefree memories provides a visual history of Duran Duran’s rise to the top, with commentary from the band members themselves.
Simon Le Bon on O’Regan: “Denis got to see a different side of the machine – he saw the cogs turning and there were times when that wasn’t everyone’s favourite… However, when we saw the photos, we were able to appreciate the potency of it.”
Denis O’Regan joined the band in France where they were filming their “New Moon On Monday” video and stayed with them until the end of the tour. His unprecedented access to the band gives the book a glimpse into the lives of Simon, Nick, John, Roger and Andy, documenting the excitement of shows and chaos that surrounded them.
