Taylor-made for success

Duran Duran’s John Taylor is going back to his roots to find new talent. The bassist will attend the Birmingham Music Awards on 2 May to present the Rising Star Award. “Birmingham is where the Duran Duran journey began”, says Brummie John. “We formed in 1978, playing Barbarella’s and many other venues around town, eventually becoming resident band at The Rum Runner. We signed our major label deal and the rest is history. I like to keep in touch with new and aspiring musicians and musical artists – it’s where the energy is – and I love coming back home and rekindling my passion for the city, so I was honoured to be invited to participate in the first Birmingham Music Awards. It’s going to be a great night for the local scene!”
