The Yorkshire born singer-songwriter scored eight Top 40 singles in the
UK during the 80's, including two with the Power Station. Addicted to Love
is his most recognised song and was a #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and
in Australia. It peaked at #5 in the UK.
Taken from the album Riptide, the only other hit from the album was I Didn't Mean to Turn You On
which made #2 in the U.S. and #9 in the UK. The guitar riff was played
by Andy Taylor from Duran Duran. The video (controversial at the time)
also upset some women's rights groups for intentionally making women look like sex objects.
