Michael Des Barres: The Key To The Universe

Album Review

The song remains the same for the Bill Nighy of groin-thrusting Britrock.

Still wearing leather trousers at 67, Michael Des Barres helped establish the archetype for exiled Britrock princelings moving to Hollywood and refusing to grow old. An aristocratic Carnaby Street playboy in the 60s, a glam rocker signed to Led Zeppelin’s label in the 1970s, and sometime frontman with Duran Duran offshoot the Power Station in the 80s, Des Barres has also long balanced acting with his musical careers.
