* MoneyDearBoy: He's quite happy to admit this as the only reason he wrote a biography for Music/DuranDuran early in his career. However, because of complications with the publisher, he never saw a dime save for his advance fee, which was only a few hundred £.
** The book actually did make it to print before the publisher went belly-up and, ironically, copies of it can now fetch a good bit of money. It's also just about the only book about them that the members of Duran Duran actually liked.
** His other early non-fiction book, ''Don't Panic'', a book about Creator/DouglasAdams and ''Literature/TheHitchhikersGuideToTheGalaxy'', was a mixture of MoneyDearBoy and OneOfUs.
