As the band "grew up" in the public eye, however, Rhodes's intelligence, determination, and incisive dry humour became well-known to fans and fellow musicians, and he has become known as the "keeper of the Duran flame". By the late 1990s, Rhodes had begun writing lyrics for Duran Duran, as well as music.His digitally altered voice is heard on the title track to the 1997 album Medazzaland.With his bandmates Simon Le Bon and Roger Taylor, Rhodes formed the side project Arcadia while Duran was on hiatus in 1985.The band had a moody, keyboard-heavy sound, far more atmospheric than Duran Duran (or the hard rock of the other Duran splinter group of 1985, Power Station).Rhodes met Julie Anne Friedman (heiress to the Iowa Younkers Department Store fortune) at a yacht party while on an American tour in 1983, and they were married August 18, 1984.They had one daughter together, Tatjana Leigh Orchid (born in 23 August 1986). Rhodes became enamoured of the art world, making friends with Andy Warhol and The Factory crowd, and attending exhibitions worldwide.Friedman’s wealthy folks loved Rhodes as they were under the impression that their new son-in-law didn’t do drugs and enjoyed a good game of Trivial Pursuit or Scrabble.Which was about from the truth as you could get back in Duran Duran’s heyday, an era that was routinely full of liver-killing champagne, cognac and cocaine parties.
At the end of 1984, he released his own book of abstract art photographs called Interference.
Rhodes studied production techniques while in the studio with Duran Duran, eventually helping to mix several tracks on the Rio album, and was a co-producer on many of the band's later albums.
In early 1983, he discovered the band Kajagoogoo and produced their debut album White Feathers.
Nick Bates was the only child of well-off parents, the owners of a Birmingham toy store called Bates Toy Shop.
In 1978, Bates left school at the age of sixteen, and founded Duran Duran with his art school friend John Taylor.
