Rs worth of rock 'n' roll anecdotes Andy tells of his time in the band The Power Station and explains why Duran Duran reformed with its original line up in 2003 But Wild Boy is also a moving story on a human level as Andy describes how the pressures of fame took a terrible personal toll on him and his family Moving from hilarious to harrowing at the turn of a page Wild Boy is a must read for anyone who lived through the 1980s or who cares about music. I enjoyed this book far than I expected to even for a Duran Duran fan I have to say my prejudice against rock stars and their writing ability predisposed me to this book being mediocre It s not Hemingway but the man writes like he speaks As such the book comes across as an affable guy telling the story of how he used to be in a band write music do drugs and met his wifeI brought this book along on a trip to Sri Lanka where many of Duran Duran s videos were shot Taylor s story provided a great backdrop to my trip He tells of his life growing up in England how his mother left him when he was just a child how he answered an ad to join a band that became Duran Duran how the band s star skyrocketed and ultimately his personal strugglesReading all this was a lot of fun He describes the other rock stars he meets along the way such as Rod Stewart and Robert Palmer He describes the stupid stuff the band did like the night John Taylor got drunk and cut up his feet dancing on vodka bottles He tells of how Simon Le Bon used to wind up hotel clerks by complaining about the uality of the hotel s pornThe best part is near the end of the book where Andy Taylor talks about the creative side of Duran Duran He simply gushes over the process and his feelings when realizes they ve put out a good song I loved reading him describe the first time he heard the American remix of the Reflex by Nile Rodgers describing how the music and lyrics came together and the first time he heard the tah nah nah nah to open the track He called The Reflex one of the best pop songs This is a fun book that starts off simple and just gets better and better His only regret falling into an elephant bathing pool in Sri Lanka and swallowing a mouth full of elephant piss
