Duran's Taylor Goes Solo

Former Duran Duran bassist John Taylor will launch a solo

tour dubbed "Terroristen" on May 21 in San Diego. The dozen-plus date West

Coast tour will find the ex-Duran man playing songs from his days with that

English pop band, as well as tunes from his tenure with short-lived supergroup

Power Station and L.A. sleaze-punk combo the Neurotic

Outsiders. Taylor is currently working on his sophomore solo album, slated

for an early 1999 release.
