The new waves of ‘80s influence have passed through music and fashion at least twice since the ‘90s. Tracking the progression can produce some sweeping assumptions that color an entire generation of burgeoning media hounds with the same DayGlo paintbrush. But in reality, the ‘80s were as much about ever-accelerating technology, large-than-life pop culture figures and finding out what comes next as the decade we’re in now. To back that up, we’ve assembled a roster of classic eighties Playboy articles and interviews; an all-star lineup of the movers and shakers of the era, from the brightest minds to the shiniest stars. Rad? Totally rad.
