Duran Duran's own John Taylor visits with the Morning MIX and talks about Tucson, his mother-in-law and American Idol (for which he apparently has little or no respect!)

John Taylor (born Nigel John Taylor on June 20, 1960 in Birmingham, England) is a bass guitarist and co-founder of the band Duran Duran, one of the most popular groups in the world during the 1980s, thanks to revolutionary music videos that played in heavy rotation in the early days of MTV.

Taylor was one of Duran Duran's most popular members.

Taylor played with Duran Duran and its changing lineups from its founding in 1978 until 1997, when he left to pursue a solo recording and film career. He made a dozen solo releases in the next four years, had a lead role in the movie Sugar Town, and made appearances in half a dozen other film projects.

He rejoined Duran Duran for a full reunion of the original five members of the group in 2001.
