Last November, former Duran Duran guitarist Andy Taylor revealed that he had been diagnosed with incurable stage four metastatic prostate cancer, in a letter read aloud by the band at their Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction. Now, Taylor has opened up about his diagnosis in an interview with 5 News, saying that he first noticed symptoms four-and-a-half years ago.
“I was out jogging, and I started to notice what you would think was a kind of arthritic sort of pain, and I never thought more of it than that. I started having these symptoms … and then I noticed on my neck I had what felt like tumours,” he said. “[The consultant] said it was stage four, metastatic – which is a death sentence.”
