This Groom And His Best Man Did The Most Bromantic Photo Shoot
Huffington Post - about 1 year
Groom John Taylor and his best man Andy Pemberton have a bromance for the ages.  At John's September 25 wedding in Newcastle upon Tyne, England, the boys teamed up with photographer Katie Byram to do a pre-wedding photo shoot to celebrate more than a decade of friendship. Shot in a suite at Hotel Du Vin the morning of the wedding, the shoot featured the besties spooning, reading magazines in bed and watching TV together from adjacent bath tubs.  Before the wedding, John told Katie that he wanted to take a couple of funny shots with his best man. Little did she know what was in store.  "I don't think she realized that she would be photographing two naked blokes in twin bath tubs," John told The Huffington Post. "I don't think we did either really. Together, me and Andy seem to lack any sort of upper threshold on how far we can push things if we think it will be a laugh." Katie said the goofball shoot was unlike any she had done before. "When I turned up at ...

Duran Duran’s New Album Produced By Nile Rodgers, Mark Ronson & Mr Hudson, Will Feature Kiesza
Idolator - almost 2 years
Duran Duran's 'The Wedding Album' Turns 20 Nick Rhodes talks to us about the band's classic 1993 album. MORE >> Duran Duran have some pretty great stuff lined up for their upcoming 14th studio album, which is due out in September. Not only did the legendary New Romantic band work with producers Nile Rodgers (the knob-twiddler behind such past DD classics as “Wild Boys” and “Notorious”), Mark Ronson (who co-produced the band’s 2010 album All You Need Is Now) and Mr Hudson, songs on the LP will also feature Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist John Frusciante and “Hideaway” singer Kiesza. (Hmmmm…still no word on what this somewhat recent meeting of Duran Duran and Lindsay Lohan was all about.) Adding a bit ...

Adjusting the Taylor Rule for the Unemployment Rate Bias
Huffington Post - over 3 years
In a post the other day about the Federal Reserve and inflation, I noted that a commonly used rule to gauge where the Fed should set the Federal Funds Rate (FFR) was pointing at around -2 percent right now. However, I noted that: ...if you tweak that calculation in a way that I think you should, i.e., by increasing the measured unemployment rate to reflect its downward bias due to people leaving the labor force because of weak labor demand, then you find that the FFR should be more like -4 percent. No wonder we're stuck in such a slog. (Later, I'll post something showing these calculations.) It's now later. There are various different rules and techniques for estimating the optimal FFR, but John Taylor's rule is probably the most common.* There are different versions of this rule and the one I favor is partly driven by the gap between the full employment unemployment rate and the actual rate. The larger that gap, the lower the FFR should be. But one problem with applying t ...

Report: Number of IPOs Increases Again This Quarter
Inc. Magazine - over 3 years
A new report finds gradual improvement for venture-backed IPOs The third quarter of 2013 was the first consecutive quarter with more than 20 IPOs since 2004--with a total of 26 venture-backed initial public offerings. In addition, today’s report by Thomson Reuters and the National Venture Capital Association sheds some light on trends with these recent IPOs. Twenty-two of the 26 companies are currently trading at or above their offering price, according to the Exit Poll. The largest IPO of the quarter came from FireEye Inc. (FEYE), a global network security company that provides malware protection. It is currently trading on the NASDAQ at more than twice its $20 offering price. “On the IPO side, favorable public market conditions and stronger valuations are contributing to better quality IPOs for venture-backed companies as evidenced by the jump in dollars raised on the public markets,” NVCA Head of Research John Taylor said in a statement. “However, we are still well below ideal ...

London property boom leaves super rich scratching around for a new pad
Guardian (UK) - over 3 years
Billionaires struggling to find suitable mansions amid surging demand in £50m-£200m price bracket You know how it is. You've got £30m-£50m to spend on a home and you can't find a thing that's suitable. That's the bizarre situation the world's super wealthy now find themselves in, as a result of the boom in London's super-prime property market. According to the small but influential group of agents that discreetly buy and sell the capital's priciest properties, desirable homes in the £50m to £200m category are proving as elusive as a Bugatti sports car. And if you want one where a developer hasn't already marbled the bathroom – one where you can choose where to put the pool or nanny's quarters, or the latest security measures – they are, it seems, proving almost impossible to find in a market that's already risen by 5% this year. Eric Schmidt, the billionaire chairman of Google, is just one of many trying – and so far failing – to find a suitable home despite his willingness to par ...

Fire service’s ‘unusual call-outs’ in Pendle and Burnley revealed
Burnley Express - over 3 years
This week we reveal Lancashire Fire and Rescue Service’s most “unusual call-outs” across Pendle and Burnley over the past three years. Our firefighters not only tackle blazes and save lives, but also assist East Lancashire residents with their more unexpected dilemmas. Since 2010 in Pendle, “Special Service Calls” ranged from a woman trapped in a pantry, to a man trapped between a building and a wall. There have also been 53 instances where residents have needed to get a ring removed from their finger. And in Burnley, fire crews have been called out to deal with an array of more unconventional rescues, including a child with a potty stuck around his neck, a woman with her fingers trapped in an ironing board and a child trapped in a muddy field. Responding to the data, Lancashire Fire and Rescue’s John Taylor, said: “Conducting rescues in all sorts of situations in addition to saving people from fires is an intrinsic part of a firefighter’s job and from time to time some of the ci ...

John Taylor: As Americans Struggle to Climb Economic Ladder, Corker-Warner GSE Reform Effort Falls Badly Short
Huffington Post - over 3 years
This is a perilous time for opportunity in America. The housing crisis, which stemmed from a terrible confluence of malfeasant lending, Wall Street machinations, and regulatory negligence, has wiped out an enormous amount of community wealth. Millions have lost their homes, and millions more have been badly set back because of that crisis. And now our leaders' commitment to homeownership as an essential engine of economic mobility and opportunity for working people, and affordable housing at large, appears to be wavering. It is absolutely critical that our policymakers and leaders do not take the wrong lesson from this disastrous period in American finance. One persistent problem is that the housing crisis, which originated on Wall Street, continues to be wrongly blamed on Main Street, and poor people in particular. A series of ugly myths underlie that notion. One of those ugly myths is that the affordable housing goals at Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac played a role in the hous ...

He remixed the song, "Like a Hard Rain" for Japanese artist Nanase Aikawa, and played on two songs for the Japanese band Slut Banks. Taylor's side project Neurotic Outsiders has re-convened for an occasional live show or two since a surprise four-show stint at the Viper Room in 1999.
    In 2013, the Writers in Treatment organisation awarded Taylor with the "Experience, Strength and Hope" award for his work.

  • 2012
    Age 51
    In 2012, he provided lyrics and vocals to a song he collaborated on with trance duo Koishii & Hush entitled 'C'est Tout Est Noir'.
    More Details Hide Details Taylor considers this a follow up to his single "I Do What I Do" from the soundtrack to the movie 9½ Weeks. The bass guitar most commonly associated with John Taylor is the Japanese Aria Pro II SB1000, which he used during the height of Duran Duran's fame; he also promoted the instrument in a series of magazine advertisements. In the mid-1980s, John tried other basses such as Steinberger and Wal. Taylor eventually settled on Phillip Kubicki's Factor bass with a unique drop-D latch on the head. Taylor also inherited the Music Man StingRay belonging to his idol Bernard Edwards. As of 2007, Taylor still plays the Aria, Stingray, Factor, and a Peavey Cirrus 5 and 4 string but has also been seen playing a 1962 reissue Fender Precision Bass, a Gibson Les Paul bass, and a Warwick Thumb 5.
    In October 2012, Taylor released an autobiography called In the Pleasure Groove: Love, Death and Duran Duran.

  • 2000
    Age 39
    In 2000, Taylor was approached at his home in Los Angeles by singer Simon Le Bon about a possible reunion with the original Duran Duran lineup, and he was enthusiastic about the idea as long as the other two Taylors (Roger and Andy, who had left the band in 1986) were willing to rejoin as well.
    More Details Hide Details An agreement was soon reached, and Taylor demonstrated his renewed commitment to the band by getting an enormous linked-D's tattoo on the upper side of his right arm. After a highly successful tour of Japan in 2003, the reunited band was signed with Epic Records, and released the album Astronaut in October 2004. They toured throughout the first half of 2005 before returning to the studio to work on their next new album. Guitarist Andy Taylor left the band again in October 2006, and recordings from this session (with the working title "Reportage") were set aside when the band got a chance to work with famed producer Timbaland. The resulting album, "Red Carpet Massacre", was released in November 2007. To celebrate its release the band took the unprecedented step of performing the album in its entirety for 10 special performances on Broadway in New York City, with a world tour in 2008.
    He continued recording for Avex in 2000, and early in 2001 released Techno For Two (featuring the international hit "6,000 Miles" co-written by Matthew Hager), a decidedly non-techno album filled with very personal songs.
    More Details Hide Details Shortly after, as talks began for a potential Duran Duran reunion, Taylor decided to create a retrospective package called Retreat Into Art demonstrating his development over the previous five years. A limited edition of 999 signed boxes contained two CDs, a poster, postcards, and more. After the signed boxes were sold out, the two-CD set was marketed on its own. Taylor's final solo release, completed after the Duran Duran reunion was under way, was the collection MetaFour released in 2002. The album is divided into four thematic sections. The first contains instrumental music created for the 1992 film Mi Vida Loca. The second consists of previously unreleased live performances from various points in Taylor's early solo career, while the third contains a handful of acoustic performances and demos. The last section is a 17-minute question and answer session Taylor took part in at the Musicians Institute in Hollywood in 1998.
  • 1998
    Age 37
    Taylor also began making forays into acting. His long friendship with Allison Anders led to a starring role in her independent film, Sugar Town, in 1998.
    More Details Hide Details
  • 1997
    Age 36
    During 1997 and 1998, Taylor built and toured with a band called "John Taylor Terroristen" (Gerry Laffy on guitar, Michael Railton/Tio Banks on keyboard, Larry Aberman on drums, John Amato on sax and flute) which played numerous shows in Southern California before touring the East and West Coasts of the United States.
    More Details Hide Details Terroristen released a live EP 5.30.98 and the accompanying video Better Off Alive through the Trust The Process website. After 9/11, Taylor said he would never use the band name "Terroristen" again.
    In January 1997 he announced at a Duran Duran fan convention that he was leaving the band.
    More Details Hide Details He was soon recording more of his own material on B5 Records, releasing the EP Autodidact even as Feelings Are Good was re-released on the larger Canadian label DeRock Records. B5 then issued a tribute album called Dream Home Heartaches... Remaking/Remodeling Roxy Music, featuring Roxy Music covers by Taylor and many other local Los Angeles artists. The label also produced the album Sub-Acid Sweet Songs for L.A. quartet Three Alarm Fire before Hein Hoven decided to leave the company. After that, the B5 Records company and the much-simplified website were renamed "Trust The Process", and focused on promoting Taylor's solo work rather than developing other acts.
  • 1996
    Age 35
    John met his second wife, Gela Nash, co-founder of Juicy Couture, in 1996, and they married in Las Vegas on 27 March 1999.
    More Details Hide Details Taylor and Nash-Taylor reside primarily in Los Angeles, but spend several weeks a year at South Wraxall Manor, which they purchased in 2005. In 2012, John Taylor became an American citizen, maintaining dual citizenship. With Duran Duran With Power Station With Neurotic Outsiders Solo Compilation albums
    He participated in writing an album for the reunited Power Station in late 1996, but his personal problems forced him to withdraw from the project, which went on to record with Bernard Edwards on bass and toured with a hired bass player.
    More Details Hide Details Increasing creative differences within Duran Duran, his move to Los Angeles and a desire to focus on his solo work also led Taylor to reconsider his place in that band.
  • 1995
    Age 34
    Following that album's supporting tour, Duran Duran spent part of the summer of 1995 in London working on the album Medazzaland.
    More Details Hide Details Concurrently, Taylor devoted time to the side project Neurotic Outsiders, recording and touring with that band from the end of 1995 through the start of 1996. In 1996, Taylor co-founded the independent record label B5 Records in California with producer Hein Hoven. B5 Records originally recorded from Hoven's Lake Hollywood home but eventually built a state of the art studio in Santa Monica dubbed "B5 by the Sea." The label had a cutting-edge website created by Kapil Mathur which featured a virtual journey through the B5 studios, and which allowed visitors to "interact" with Taylor and Hoven using mobile avatars in a virtual environment. At B5, Taylor sang and played guitar and bass on his first solo album, Feelings Are Good (And Other Lies), working with collaborator Steve Jones of the Sex Pistols. The home-grown album was marketed by mail order, and sold its CDs directly via the website. The music and vocals were generally rough and raw, much more akin to grunge and punk music than to Duran Duran, while the lyrics reflected Taylor's chaotic personal life and his ongoing divorce from De Cadenet.
    Duran Duran's success rapidly waned with the widely derided 1995 covers album Thank You.
    More Details Hide Details
    He and De Cadenet separated in May 1995.

  • 1994
    Age 33
    In late 1994, Taylor sought treatment for his substance abuse, and has remained sober since.

  • 1993
    Age 32
    Taylor's marriage declined even as Duran Duran's star rose with the success of 1993's Duran Duran, also known as The Wedding Album.
    More Details Hide Details
  • 1992
    Age 31
    The second, Meltdown, was a collection of tracks Taylor had laid down in 1992, during the extensive delays in Duran Duran's recording of The Wedding Album.
    More Details Hide Details Described by Taylor as "upbeat dance electronica with a hip hop influence", some of the lyrics reveal his disaffection with the Duran Duran lifestyle; he has said he came very near to leaving the band during that time, but was held back by the sudden success of "Ordinary World" and "Come Undone" in 1993. Later in 1999 Taylor signed a recording contract with the Japanese record label Avex Trax, and released an album labelled simply John Taylor on the cover, but listed in his official discography as The Japan Album. John Taylor Terroristen did more touring in Japan, Germany, and the United States. The Trust The Process website released an accompanying limited edition Japanese EP, followed by the "bootleg album" Live Cuts featuring unretouched recordings of Taylor's live performances from that year.
  • 1991
    Age 30
    On 24 December 1991, Taylor married 19-year-old Amanda De Cadenet, who was already pregnant with his daughter Atlanta (born 31 March 1992).
    More Details Hide Details He moved from England to Los Angeles, California to help further his wife's acting career, as well as to escape constant attention from the British tabloids.
  • 1986
    Age 25
    Although Andy Taylor and Roger Taylor left the band, the three remaining Duran Duran members reformed for the 1986 Notorious album, and continued to record and tour throughout the 1990s with new guitarist Warren Cuccurullo.
    More Details Hide Details Taylor recorded a fair amount of unreleased solo material on the side, including several tracks used on the soundtrack of the Allison Anders movie Mi Vida Loca.
  • 1985
    Age 24
    From 1985 to 1989, John dated Danish model Renée Toft Simonsen, to whom he was engaged. John married Amanda De Cadenet at Chelsea Old Town Hall's registry office on 24 December 1991, and they had one daughter, Atlanta Noo, on 31 March 1992.
    More Details Hide Details They officially separated in May 1995.
    In 1985, after recording the chart-topping theme to the Bond movie A View to a Kill, Duran Duran split into two side projects.
    More Details Hide Details
  • 1983
    Age 22
    John Taylor and Duran Duran guitarist Andy Taylor joined forces with former Chic drummer Tony Thompson and Robert Palmer (singer) who earlier met at Duran Duran`s charity concert at Aston Villa football ground 1983 to form the band The Power Station.
    More Details Hide Details With the guidance of producer Bernard Edwards, they released one album, The Power Station, which produced the hit singles "Some Like It Hot" and the T.Rex cover song "Bang a Gong (Get It On)". That year, Taylor also launched his first solo effort, recording the single "I Do What I Do" for the soundtrack to the movie 9½ Weeks. He also wrote some instrumental music for the movie's score with collaborator Jonathan Elias.
  • 1981
    Age 20
    Duran Duran released their first album in 1981, and went on to worldwide success in the early 1980s.
    More Details Hide Details Duran Duran's early music tended to prominently feature Taylor's melodic bass lines, following the model of funk and disco songs like "Good Times". Contrary to popular belief, Taylor does not play bass on the Band Aid charity single "Do They Know It's Christmas? ", the bassline on that tracks was played on an OSCar synthesiser. As Duran Duran became famous in the early 1980s, Taylor's individual celebrity grew. His picture was a staple of teen magazines, and he won numerous popularity polls, including appearances on People Magazines annual list of "Sexiest People". He lived a lavish lifestyle with homes in London and Paris, and owned several cars, which he rarely had a chance to drive, including the Bond-style Aston Martin of which he had always dreamed. He dated fashion models, such as Bond girl Janine Andrews and "Face of the '80s" Renee Simonsen.
  • 1978
    Age 17
    In 1978, Taylor and school friend Nick Rhodes formed Duran Duran with Stephen Duffy while attending the School of Foundation Studies & Experimental Workshop Birmingham Polytechnic (now Birmingham City University).
    More Details Hide Details Soon after Taylor underwent an "ugly duckling" transformation—ditching the glasses for contact lenses, adopting the ruffles and sashes of the fashion that would become known as the New Romantic style, and learning to wear eyeliner and lipstick. He stopped using the name "Nigel", and has been known throughout his professional career as John Taylor. Taylor played guitar when Duran Duran was founded, but switched to bass guitar after discovering the funky rhythms of Chic, and learned to enjoy playing in the rhythm section with Duran's newly recruited drummer Roger Taylor. He has frequently cited Chic's Bernard Edwards and The Clash's Paul Simonon as his strongest influences, in addition to Paul McCartney, James Jamerson, and Roxy Music players Graham Simpson and John Porter.
    Taylor played with Duran Duran from its founding in 1978 until 1997, when he left to pursue a solo recording and film career.
    More Details Hide Details He recorded a dozen solo releases (albums, EPs, and video projects) through his company "Trust The Process" over the next four years, had a lead role in the movie Sugar Town, and made appearances in a half dozen other film projects. He rejoined Duran Duran for a reunion of the original five members of the group in 2001 and has remained with the group since. Taylor was also a member of two supergroups: The Power Station and Neurotic Outsiders. John Taylor grew up in Hollywood, a suburb of Birmingham, England. As a child he attended Our Lady of the Wayside Catholic school and the Abbey High School, in Redditch, wore glasses (due to severe myopia, over -10 dioptres), enjoyed James Bond movies and the hobby of wargaming with hand-painted model soldiers. In his early teen years, he discovered music, choosing Roxy Music as his favourite band, and before long was collecting records and teaching himself to play piano. His first band was called Shock Treatment.
