“Here is my journey and where it took me; into fantastic success, more than a little decadence, darkness and finally, I like to think, a little enlightenment’.

John promises the book will feature humour and wisdom as the Duran Duran bass player tells his story of a career that has generated over 80 million record sales.

He talks about meeting Andy Warhol, David Bowie and the occasional James Bond and accounts his life dating Vogue models and driving fast cars.

‘In The Pleasure Groove – Love Death & Duran Duran’ will be published by Little Brown in October.
