Do you think John Taylor from Duran Duran would do a webchat?

(88 Posts)

MNHQ have commented on this thread. Read here.

Sparklingbrook Sun 18-Aug-13 17:58:53

I think there are a few of us MNetters of a certain age that would enjoy it. smile

You lot would turn it into a perve fest after what I have seen on a certain thread grin

Will he even know what a web chat is?

Sparklingbrook Sun 18-Aug-13 18:04:11

No we wouldn't SPs. grin We would ask him questions we wouldn't have asked as teenagers. Sensible ones. wink

Anyway when's your webchat with Cliff?

InkleWinkle Sun 18-Aug-13 18:06:59

Oh SP, leave us old timers alone with our dreams! smile

MNHQ please please please please please please please please please can we have a webchat? Please.

I wanted to ask him a question last night at his book signing but I didn't get picked hmm

TSSDNCOP Sun 18-Aug-13 18:07:58

Here's my question for the webchat:

John, I loves you, will you marry me? and not Sparkling

Sparklingbrook Sun 18-Aug-13 18:08:14

Were there any cringey questions Inkle? sad

usualsuspect Sun 18-Aug-13 18:08:32


What on earth would he have to say that would be interesting??

TSSDNCOP Sun 18-Aug-13 18:09:37

He would say "Yes, TSSDNCOP" which would be very, very interesting actually Madame

Sparklingbrook Sun 18-Aug-13 18:09:44

You can't have that question TSS he is happily married. Nick Rhodes only unmarried one now I'm afraid. grin

TSSDNCOP Sun 18-Aug-13 18:10:33

Although it may be very, very difficult for Sparkling to stick to the webchat guidelines thereafter grin

Sparklingbrook Sun 18-Aug-13 18:10:37

You are joking Madame? confused

Spottypurse Sun 18-Aug-13 18:10:49

Oh yes please!

TSSDNCOP Sun 18-Aug-13 18:11:46

I see nothing in the guideline that says I may not ask that question Sparkling. Plus he's only married now because I have not asked my question.

usualsuspect Sun 18-Aug-13 18:11:49


He's not very interesting is he?

RedPencils Sun 18-Aug-13 18:12:18

Now Harry Hairstyles, he'd be much better wink

Only joking, I'm digging out my Red hearts John pencil case as we speak.

Pagwatch Sun 18-Aug-13 18:12:55

I want to know about everything.

Is a naked webchat possible? Could tech do something about this maybe?

TSSDNCOP Sun 18-Aug-13 18:13:00

Put your hand on your heart Sparkling and promise on his bass hand that it wasnt going to be your question too grin

InkleWinkle Sun 18-Aug-13 18:13:36

The questions were all good but there was the embarrassing business of people being given the microphone and going all giggly and saying things like 'OMG I can't believe I'm actually talking to John Taylor tee hee hee.'
I mean, really, have some dignity smile

Pagwatch Sun 18-Aug-13 18:13:45

I dated a guy who looked like him. I may have called him John sometimes .

Pagwatch Sun 18-Aug-13 18:14:18

Screw dignity.

InkleWinkle Sun 18-Aug-13 18:14:21

Naked John Taylor hhhmmm....

Sparklingbrook Sun 18-Aug-13 18:14:48

Years in a vv successful band travelling the world, getting married, having a child, getting divorced going to rehab to get clean from alcohol and drugs, getting married again to someone who already had kids and surviving to tell the tale usual. No not interesting at all. confused

Pagwatch Sun 18-Aug-13 18:15:05

pick me John

Spottypurse Sun 18-Aug-13 18:15:51

My dignity would be Out the window like sparkling and pags knickers

InkleWinkle Sun 18-Aug-13 18:16:38

I know Pag but it was a civilised book reading / signing event!
Even I managed to string a few coherent words together when I was getting my booked signed.

Although if there hadn't been a desk between us I may have rugby tackled him to the ground smile

Sparklingbrook Sun 18-Aug-13 18:16:42

Oh no Inkle. Cringe!

Blimey, I've been married and had children and got divorced so that wipes half the things off of the list that make him special!! (And DH has married someone with children)

If he does come on here maybe someone could ask what hairspray he uses and why he has never used moisturiser or sun protection??

I just do not get the attraction.

Sparklingbrook Sun 18-Aug-13 18:18:47

Well put yourself forward for a webchat then Madame. But I don't think you did any of that in the public eye unless you are Patsy Kensit or something....

usualsuspect Sun 18-Aug-13 18:19:17

I'd rather have Robert Plant tbh.

Sparklingbrook Sun 18-Aug-13 18:20:21

Madame he was a big part of my teenage years, did you not have any posters on your wall?

Then you get older and realise he is just a normal person and you have sensible things to ask.

usualsuspect Sun 18-Aug-13 18:20:30

I seem to have missed all the John Taylor love on MN.

Sparkling Do you think Cliff would tell us all why THAT picture even exists? grin

Sparklingbrook Sun 18-Aug-13 18:21:27

All yours usual.

Sparklingbrook Sun 18-Aug-13 18:22:56

I think that question would be top of the list SPs. It needs answering. grin

Blimey - touchy.

My posts were tongue in cheek. I just think there are a lot of people who are far more interesting in terms of what they have to offer than John Taylor.

Sorry if I offended you.

That would be the only question!

I have nothing to ask this John fella. Do you think he googles his self and has come across your love fest about him? grin

Sparklingbrook Sun 18-Aug-13 18:25:27

You didn't offend me Madame. If you want to have someone on for a webchat you have to ask MN and get a bit of support behind it.

usualsuspect Sun 18-Aug-13 18:25:46

<leaves strange thread>

If you get a webchat with John can I get a lone webchat with RH or Scott from 5ive grin

Sparklingbrook Sun 18-Aug-13 18:27:29

No SPs. You can have one with Duncan Blue. grin

I can see a JT webchat going a bit like the one with Kevin from Grand Designs.

A couple of posters were hilarious and Kevin loved it! grin

Pagwatch Sun 18-Aug-13 18:28:30

I went to a DuranDuan concert back in the day.
Couldn't hear a single thing except a wall of screaming.

I dressed up and everything.well you never know I had already pulled Freddie

cocolepew Sun 18-Aug-13 18:28:37

How did I know this would be you Sparkling?
Psychic that's me.

Lighthousekeeping Sun 18-Aug-13 18:28:51

I loved him at the time. It's amazing what mucky thoughts you are capable of having at 14 for a man. I probably would've run off with him. When it came to it wasn't Amanda only 16 when she started going out with him. You can see how these situations happen. However, that's another thread!

I wouldn't want to see him naked now though, he is in his 50's after all. I doubt he has a very good body. I don't think he ever did!

Pagwatch Sun 18-Aug-13 18:29:32

Everyone has one with Duncan Blue. It's just about waiting long enough surely.

Sparklingbrook Sun 18-Aug-13 18:30:40

grin Pagwatch

Pagwatch Sun 18-Aug-13 18:31:06


People in their 50s can have great fantastic reasonable ok not awful bodies

Lighthousekeeping Sun 18-Aug-13 18:32:31

I know but I just don't think he will cut the mustard naked.

EstelleGetty Sun 18-Aug-13 18:33:57

Oh he totally would. He was interviewed in the Guardian Family section yesterday. Ergo, MN would be right up his street!

Sparklingbrook Sun 18-Aug-13 18:39:51
NarkyNamechanger Sun 18-Aug-13 18:41:03

sparkling you can on the proviso that we also get a Harry Hairstyles one.

I already spotted another poster up there ^^ who would agree smile

Pagwatch Sun 18-Aug-13 18:41:35

I think I should be the judge of his mustard cutting.
I will see him naked first so that I can see if his nuditity is ok or not.

NarkyNamechanger Sun 18-Aug-13 18:42:53

Oh I just realised Redpencils was not serious sad

Hey ho- I'm still game!

Sparklingbrook Sun 18-Aug-13 18:44:38

Pagwatch it cannot be any worse than Harry Hairstyles that's for sure.

NarkyNamechanger Sun 18-Aug-13 18:46:33


And yum!

Sparklingbrook Sun 18-Aug-13 18:53:42

Yum? Bleurgh.

FacebookWanker Sun 18-Aug-13 18:58:08

Can we have a web chat with all of them. Roger was the man for me. I wrote him poems and everything...

NarkyNamechanger Sun 18-Aug-13 18:58:10

Oh sad

Sparklingbrook Sun 18-Aug-13 19:02:23

Be a lot to fit in in only an hour Facebook. They all have a lot to say for themselves. Um except for Roger weirdly. Typical shy drummer. grin

RedPencils Sun 18-Aug-13 19:07:07

Narky - course I'm joking about Harry hairstyles. Unless the theme was give Harry some life advice drop Grimshaw and knock it off with the crap tattoos son

Sparklingbrook Sun 18-Aug-13 19:13:14

Red I think you are onto something. A bit of a different sort of webchat where Celebs ask MN for life coaching advice. Perfect.

cocolepew Sun 18-Aug-13 19:16:36

Really Harry Hairstyles is this generations JT.
Its all in the bouffant hair dos.

I dont think I could cope with a web chat with RH or Scott from 5ive. It would just be comments from me saying:


As I would be too excited to type properly! grin

Sparklingbrook Sun 18-Aug-13 19:21:14

Noooo cocole, huge difference. JT plays an instrument. he is the master of the bass guitar. wink

HH-bouffant strip of wind with bad tats.

RedPencils Sun 18-Aug-13 19:22:08

Good point Coco. Its all about the Hair.
Mind you we would should probably swerve Hairstyles otherwise all the loopers teenage fans would be over here breaking the servers issuing us all with death threats.

Sparklingbrook Sun 18-Aug-13 19:23:59

Aah yes Red the Directioners. Did you see the documentary? shock

Thank goodness FB was not around in 1984.

RedPencils Sun 18-Aug-13 19:27:49

Have got it recorded but not watched it yet. The trailers wee bad enough.

cocolepew Sun 18-Aug-13 19:35:12

I missed the documentary, wish I'd seen it.

Lighthousekeeping Sun 18-Aug-13 19:59:58

I'd rather have Sting tbh.

Sparklingbrook Sun 18-Aug-13 20:33:27

shock Nooo Lighthouse.

TSSDNCOP Sun 18-Aug-13 20:45:34

Trudie is that you with the Lightning nn?

Pagwatch Sun 18-Aug-13 22:06:10

If it was Trudie it would be
'look. I'm having Sting, have been for hours actually but we will need to stop in a moment for some taramasalata. But it's all fabulous, obviously'

Sparklingbrook Sun 18-Aug-13 22:24:16


InkleWinkle Sun 18-Aug-13 22:31:29

I was going to say earlier that I wouldn't have the energy for Sting but then I got side tracked watching the episode of Friends with Trudie in it!
Spooky or what eh?

differentnameforthis Mon 19-Aug-13 03:02:43

Yes please!

Or Nick Rhodes. Or both. Or all of them...I'm not fussy...but definitely Nick Rhodes.

Thank you. And please.

GoshAnneGorilla Mon 19-Aug-13 03:33:29

Different - yes to Nick Rhodes. I think he would have fabulous stories to tell. Plus he is known to like women in their earlier 30's, so I could be well in there (sorry DH).

My ultimate 80's dream lovaah is Morten Harket, but since he seems more fond of philosophical debates in interviews*, I'm not sure he'd be comfortable with an MN webchat.

* Not his best photo, it must be said

Sparklingbrook Mon 19-Aug-13 07:59:57

I love Nick Rhodes but I can't think if anything I could ask him. He always seems very highbrow and serious.

RowanMumsnet (MNHQ) Mon 19-Aug-13 11:46:55

ZOMG at this <hyperventilates>

Will throw it over to our webchat supremo

Sparklingbrook Mon 19-Aug-13 12:15:44

You lot at MNHQ would have to promise to try and control yourselves should this ever happen. <imagines all at MNHQ volunteering to 'help' JT>

InkleWinkle Mon 19-Aug-13 14:23:20

Some of us could come & help incase it's all too much for the MNHQers?

Sparklingbrook Mon 19-Aug-13 14:26:57

Oh yes. Good idea Inkle. grin

Pagwatch Mon 19-Aug-13 14:45:27

I've already shotgunned checking out JT incase it is a naked webchat.

For christsake get a move on with that tech.

Sparklingbrook Mon 19-Aug-13 14:49:45

Naked webchat. grin Or a strip webchat where one item of clothing comes off for each question Pagwatch? grin

namechangedyetagain Mon 19-Aug-13 15:00:10

Did I miss something? A John Taylor web chat smile?

Sparklingbrook Mon 19-Aug-13 15:06:18

We are at the asking stage name. grin
