John Taylor

John Taylor is the bassist of pop supergroup, Duran Duran. Duran Duran's first album was released in 1981 featuring hits "Planet Earth" and "Girls on Film." The band's 13th studio album, "All You Need Is Now," was released in 2010. Even though I'm a rocker, I have loved Duran Duran since I was 12.

John's autobiography, In the Pleasure Groove: Love, Death, and Duran Duran, was recently released in paperback. I own a signed copy of the hardcover!

What is John Taylor reading?

When asked what his favorite autobiography was and what he is currently reading, John tweeted,
"The Bob Dylan Memoir is one I've enjoyed the most, currently Reading Far From The Tree ^ JT."

I was able to attend a signing event with John Taylor last year!

Enjoy a song from their latest album.

Oh, I had such a crush on him. Teen highlight, age 14, 3rd row at a Duran Duran concert.
