In The Pleasure Groove ~ Love, Death and Duran Duran, is a book newly released by John Taylor (@thisistherealjt), bassist of none other than my most favorite band, Duran Duran (@DuranDuran). He's recorded it, so it's available on audiobook soon! Needless to say, I'm superexcited about this! I recently purchased Andy Taylor's book on iTunes. I really want to learn more about the life behind the life of the man.
I've talked with many friends who play music, some more accomplished than others. I hear in different media, too, about the genius of John's bass playing. I can't really relate to that level of appreciation because I don't play any instruments, nor have I studied music, but I know this: I feel good when I hear the music to which he's contributed. His bass lines serve a vital purpose in each song. I appreciate his love of music, his love of humanity and his sharing this with the world. He delivers *me* Into The Pleasure Groove. Yeah, baby.
Here's a YouTube video of him reading a snippet of his book. Enjoy!
