1984 - John Taylor
John Taylor, Duran Duran's bassist, had been dating a model & singer by the name of Bebe Buell and he offered to assemble a funked up version of the old T. Rex rocker ?Bang A Gong (Get It On)? (1971/2 US#10/OZ#14/UK#1) for Buell to contribute vocals on.
John Taylor had asked his Duran Duran band mate Andy Taylor to play guitar on the track, and invited former Chic drummer Tony Thompson to contribute as well. In late 1984 the trio had laid down several demo tracks in the studio, including a few original numbers, before as fate would have it, J. Taylor and Buell went their separate ways.
