The 62-year-old guitarist was diagnosed with stage IV prostate cancer in 2018.

But Taylor opened up about how a medical procedure “got his life back.”

He was treated by top scientist Christopher Evans, whom he dubbed the “Elon Musk of cancer.”

The treatment involves pumping radioactive chemicals into its blood, leaving the star “radioactive for several days.”

Taylor told the Times at the start of his second round of treatment: “I’m asymptomatic.

“It has the potential to kill all cancer, but since it’s stage four, it’s still not curable. I got my life back But staying alive is a full-time job.”

Next month, the musician will release his third solo album, Man’s A Wolf To Man.

Forming in Birmingham in 1978, Duran Duran were one of the biggest acts of the 1980s with hits like ‘Rio’, ‘The Wild Boys’ and the Bond-themed ‘A View To A Kill’.

The group released their 15th studio album Future Past in 2021 and is currently touring North America with special guests Nile Rodgers and Chic and Bastille.
