He best known as a founding member and keyboardist for the new wave '80s sensation Duran Duran. Rhodes co-founded Duran Duran with John Taylor in the late '70s and the band had their first chart hit in 1981 with Planet Earth in England. The following years Duran Duran had an international hit record entitled Rio. The band name, Duran Duran, came from the villain Dr. Durand Durand in Roger Vadium's 1968 sci-fi cult classic Barbarella, starring actress Jane Fonda. By 1982, Duran Duran had become one of the most popular rock acts in the world. Their individual personal style and artistic abilities set them apart from the norm. Rhodes became known for his bleached locks of hair and the heavy use of black eyeliner. By 1985 band's nonstop touring and recording schedule began to wear on the band mates. Both drummer Roger and Andy Taylor had walked away from the band by the time their 1988 album Big Thing was released and the album proved to be a big disappoint to Duran Duran's adoring public.
