Amongst my Christmas presents was the autobiography of John Taylor of Duran Duran. Just finished it and can see why it had great reviews. 
Tale of cocaine and drink fuelled madness and virtually every one who was a star then gets mentioned in some shape. 
Also lot of references to his Brummie life and all the clubs, pubs and shops at the time. Real trip down memory lane. 
Guy comes across very sound and little dirt on the others, but seems Andy Taylor was an awkward fecker.
Anyway no one around in that era would be disappointed with this even if you didn't like the band.
cheers for the tip Spandau....personally I've always likes ABs and I'm sure this will be an interesting read.......
Know a few who were at school with him (Redditch) and said he was a bit nerdy then!

I read it a while back. He was a really music buff, into Led Zep etc and reading the NME. Hated the school at Redditch, but who can blame him. Very under rated band. They made all their own music, but too many write them off due to the fact they were so popular for a few years and were the forefront of video. They're anything but a boy band.
Ordered it on your say so SB, shall look forward to it!

How he’s still alive is incredible. My kids went to his old primary school so I was particularly intrigued. 
The guy has liven some life. Pretty much couldn’t put the book down over the weekend. Sign of a good read.
Arrived today pal, shall look forward to it and the stories from the Rum Runner
