I’ll start with Notorious era Duran Duran, newly a 3 piece band about to start a grueling 7 year slog (until ‘93’s Ordinary World and Come Undone) chasing credibility and their former fame and glory.

George at the pinnacle of success posing for Faith.

Faith peaked at number one on the UK Albums Chart and US Billboard 200.

It stayed for 51 non-consecutive weeks inside the Billboard 200 top 10, including 12 weeks at number one.

It was also the first album by a white solo artist to hit number one on the Billboard Top Black Albums chart.

Faith spawned four number one singles on the Billboard Hot 100: "Faith", "Father Figure", "One More Try", and "Monkey", making Michael the only British male solo artist to have four number one hits from one album.

Not many UK acts achieved this level? The album is estimated to have sold over 25 million copies worldwide.

in 1988 there was MJ, Madge, Prince, U2 and George (RIP)

Sid and Johnny amid the chaos and nearing the end but safe in the knowledge the music and its industry would never be the same again.

Johnny’s infamous final words as the band imploded in America “ever get the feeling you’ve been cheated?”

In Sid’s case I’d say that’s a resounding yes (RIP again..)

Whilst its Joe that rightly gets the musical glory, it was Paul Simonon’s images that last the test of time and helped drive The Clash to huge success stateside.

This was thanks in no small part to the photographer Pennie Smith who took the legendary shot on the cover of London Calling as well as the Texas wreckers yard shot.

A young Jay Kay. Having recently signed a global 7 album deal with Sony at just 19.

Singer, songwriter, dancer, climate activist (way before they existed) and funky hat wearer extraordinaire.

The press still hate him but he sure has secured his spot in UK pop funk history.

Anton Corbijn deserves his own thread but his work with Depeche Mode is probably his most well renowned.

5 years into their career they were Basildons finest but not much more. That changed dramatically when they turned from oddball New Romantics to global rock stars.

This was taken in ‘93 for Songs Of Faith and Devotion, just before Alan quit and Dave’s heroin appetite nearly finished him off. Still an incredible record nearly 30 years on.

Okay, too many blokes..

 

Certifiable she may have been but Wendy James, front women of Transvision Vamp deserved every moment of her 15 minutes of fame
