English musician, best known as the founding member and keyboardist of the pop rock band Duran Duran.
He has also released albums with Arcadia in 1985 (a Duran Duran side-project), as well as The Devils in 2002 with Stephen Duffy the original lead singer of Duran Duran. In March 2013, he released the TV Mania side project with ex-Duran Duran guitarist Warren Cuccurullo.
Rhodes married Julie Anne Friedman (heiress to the Iowa, USA Younkers Department Store fortune) on 18 August 1984. They have one daughter together, Tatjana Lee Orchid (born 23 August 1986). They filed for divorce in 1992.
Rhodes became enamoured of the art world early in his career, making friends with Andy Warhol and The Factory crowd, and attending exhibitions worldwide. At the end of 1984, he released his own book of abstract art photographs called Interference. Many of the photos were displayed at an exhibition at the Hamilton Gallery in London.

Sy Scholfield quotes him for his Ascendant sign ("'I'm a triple Gemini'") by which he presumably means Sun, Mercury and Ascendant in Gemini ("BEYOND PLANET EARTH" by Julia Kuttner, Mirror [London], 1 October 2004. pp. 8-9). On the other hand, a website biography states that he doesn't know his time of birth . When the sign of the ascendant is given but no time or degree of that sign, Scholfield's policy is to calculate the chart for the middle degree (15°) of the sign, thereby 4:50am gives 15 Gemini on the ascendant.
