Andy Taylor, who is battling stage-4 prostate cancer, has revealed that he is undergoing a new drug treatment that he believes will extend his life for five years.
The former Duran Duran guitarist said in an interview with BBC Breakfast that a scientist last year offered him “a nuclear medicine, Lutetium-177, which is targeted so it only sees cancer cells.”
“It can’t see healthy cells. It kills stage 4 cancer in your bones, and so what it’s effectively done is extend my life for five years,” Taylor said.
The disease prevented the 62-year-old artist from attending his induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame with the rock band last year.
Taylor is set to release an 11-track solo album, Man’s a Wolf to Man, on September 8.
