Duran Duran's John Taylor has put his wild partying days into words in his new autobiography, "In The Pleasure Groove." From the sound of it, those years were one non-stop, cocaine-fueled bout of sexual promiscuity.
“I didn’t want to be lonely, and the drugs ensured I never was,” he writes (via The New York Post). “I’m a pinup on thousands of bedroom walls, but the fear of loneliness is turning me into a cokehead.”
Cocaine may have been one of his problems, but Taylor also found himself in bed with a bevy of women. The band had an interesting (if discomforting) way of staying out of serious trouble.
“Of absolute necessity for any touring musician is the itinerary,” Taylor wrote of his 1981 US tour. “In the left-hand corner of each page of the US itinerary, there was a number, usually 18, 21, or 20. It was months before I was let in on the secret. The numbers referred to the legal age for sexual intercourse in that particular state.”
Taylor isn't the only rocker with a promiscuous past. On Wednesday, biographer Chris Andersen put a number on Mick Jagger's sexual history.
"Mick Jagger has slept with 4,000 women over the course of his life," the author told Extra. "And in retrospect, I think that might be kind of a low figure."
