What I’m Reading Fridays with @meganslayer ~ In the Pleasure Groove: Love, Death and Duran Duran by John Taylor #reading

I’m going to date myself a bit, but I remember when Rio and Hungry Like the Wolf came out. I loved them. They were so glossy and modern. Plus, John Taylor and Nick Rhodes were always my favorite members of Duran Duran. I guess I had a thing for glam men and androgynous ones. Anyway, I happened on a list of rock and roll biographies that were highly recommended (possibly on Rolling Stone magazine’s site) and this was one of the ones listed. I immediately put it in my queue. I’m glad I read this. There is so much more than just the band to John Taylor. This is candid, blunt and honest. Check it out!

The talent. The charisma. The videos. From their 1981 hit “Planet Earth” to their latest number-one album, All You Need Is Now, John Taylor and Duran Duran have enchanted audiences around the world. It’s been a wild ride, and—for John in particular—dangerous. John recounts the story of the band’s formation, their massive success, and his journey to the brink of self-destruction. Told with humor, honesty—and packed with exclusive pictures—In the Pleasure Groove is an irresistible rock-and-roll portrait of a band whose popularity has never been stronger.
