Happy Birthday John!

John Taylor, born Nigel John Taylor on June 20, 1960, in England, is best known as the charismatic bassist and co-founder of the iconic band Duran Duran. Taylor developed a passion for music at an early age, honing his skills on the bass guitar and immersing himself in the vibrant music scene of the 1970s.

In 1978, Taylor co-founded Duran Duran with childhood friend Nick Rhodes, quickly catapulting to fame with their innovative blend of pop, rock, and new wave sounds. With Taylor’s distinctive basslines serving as the backbone of the band’s iconic sound, Duran Duran rose to become one of the most successful and influential bands of the 1980s.

Taylor told Spin magazine that, “When I came home from the last Duran tour, I reckoned I was going to need hip replacement surgery. It’s that time and I’m that old. But tai chi is teaching me to heal the body from within. No knives. I wish I had started earlier.”
