    With Duran Duran, John Taylor has created some of the greatest music of our time. From the disco dazzle of debut single "Planet Earth" right up to their latest number one album, All You Need is Now, Duran Duran has always had the power to sweep the world onto its feet. It's been a ride - and for John in particular, the ride has been wild, thrilling...and dangerous. Now, for the first time, he tells his incredible story. A tale of dreams fulfilled, lessons learned and demons conquered.

    Story
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I was a total Valley Girl. Grew up in San Fernando Valley and Duran Duran was my band. Saw them in concert at least 4 times and just recently this summer 2012, at Pacific Amphitheater in Costa Mesa. This glimpse in the life of the band made me disheartened. i wanted to read about exciting, juicy tidbits that I never knew. John Taylor is a wuss! He comes across as a total non-rock star, scared to say anything negative about anybody. Ya, he was devoted to his parents and his friends but come on that is most everybody's story. I dont care to read about how he lost his eye contact during a concert, his VW was named Suki or a parking ticket he doesnt remember receiving arrives in mail. He glosses over all his one night stands, disagreements with other band mates, and his drug use. I am not even into Rolling Stones or Aerosmith but Keith Richards and Steven Tyler's bio was so much more open, truthful and shocking. I say don't waste your time on this.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Life After Death, Echols


    What three words best describe John Taylor’s voice?

    somewhat sexy


    Do you think In the Pleasure Groove needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Only if John Taylor is willing to open up and tell us more details.
