[ # ] Duran Duran’s Nick Rhodes got Kajagoogoo their big break
June 8th, 2021 under Duran Duran, Limahl

I don’t know about you, but I love to hear stories about how people got their big breaks. I especially enjoy hearing when another famous person believes in the future celebrity so much that they help them get their start.

Today, Limahl wished Duran Duran’s Nick Rhodes a happy 59th birthday. In his post, he shared how the keyboardist changed his life.

“A BIG Happy birthday to NICK (Rhodes) today – I can’t believe it’s almost 40 years since I served you that drink at THE EMBASSY CLUB on London’s Old Bond Street where I worked as a waiter,” The singer wrote, “I enthused to you about my band KAJAGOOGOO. Amazingly you asked me to send you our demos and the rest as they say…you went on to co-produce (with Colin Thurston) our worldwide hit ‘TOO SHY’ 🥂🥂🥂”

To all you future musicians, who are working a day job wishing for your big break, you never where and when you will find it.

It is also nice to know that someone in a band, who just got their big break, was willing to help a stranger have the same opportunity. That is why Nick Rhodes was my favorite member of the band. I knew he had a huge heart to go with his huge you know what!!!
