In the Pleasure Groove
- Love, Death, and Duran Duran
- By: John Taylor
- Narrated by: John Taylor
- Length: 7 hrs and 54 mins
A shy only child, Nigel John Taylor wasn't an obvious candidate for pop stardom and frenzied girl panic. But when he ditched his first name and picked up a bass guitar, everything changed. John formed Duran Duran with his friend Nick Rhodes in the spring of 1978, and they were soon joined by Roger Taylor, then Andy Taylor and finally Simon Le Bon. Together they were an immediate, massive global success story, their pictures on millions of walls, every single a worldwide hit. In his frank, compelling autobiography, John recounts the highs and the lows.

This was my first audible purchase, and what a purchase! I loved every second of having JT read to me. Like other reviewers I would have liked to hear more about 1998 onwards, but he writes very movingly on the later years and eventual passing of his parents.
Would recommend to anyone with a love of the eighties, Duran Duran or JT. It's a great book!
