Description du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

Roxy Music were the first, and best, of all art school-influenced bands. Led by Bryan Ferry, the hippest Geordie in town, they kicked against the denim-clad anonymity of the early ‘70s and turned the first half of the decade into a huge glam rock party. Aided and abetted by Brian Eno, Ferry dreamt up an extraordinary kaleidoscopic music that appealed to outsiders everywhere. He also fell passionately in love with model Jerry Hall – an affair that ended sadly, and publicly, when she left him for Mick Jagger. The mid-‘70s saw rows and band splits before Roxy reformed as a slick, sophisticated, lounge-disco concern before finally imploding, after a successful US tour, in 1983.

I was so put off by the bad review here (there was only one other review at the time) that I nearly didn't buy this book. But it was the only option available on the Kindle, so I took a chance. I needn't have worried. This is a perfectly serviceable overview of Roxy/Ferry's career up to the early 2000s.

Sure, the author thinks that Roxy was the "first punk band", or at least, the first British one, but what of it? I think he actually makes a good case. And even it you don't agree with his opinion, by no means does he repeat it to distraction.

Neither did I get the impression that the author believes that Eno was the most important Roxy member. Sure, he's thinks something was lost when he departed after the second album but then so do a lot of Roxy fans. Hell, Ferry himself has said as much! During an interview quoted in this book, Ferry cites For Your Pleasure as the best Roxy album. He also wonders what it would be like to go back and redo all the subsequent albums with Eno still in place.

But still the book makes clear that Roxy was always Ferry's band; it was put together by and for him. Ferry was clearly the main man, who received neither the credit or financial success that he deserved, especially when compared to contemporaries such as Elton and Rod.

Aside from Ferry himself, the book contains interviews with all the major players - Manzanara, MacKay, Thompson, Eno - as well as some of the "forgotten men" of Roxy, such as John Wetton, Jonny Gustafson, original guitarist Davy O'List (claims he had to knock Ferry's first songs into shape) and Eddie Jobson (not at all amused to be listed in the "special thanks to" column on Roxy compilations, when he was actually a full-time member for the band for three years!).

The only point at which I really disagreed with the author was when he put down the achingly beautiful My Only Love as the weakest track on Flesh + Blood!!

I am not through with the book yet (I am up to THE BRIDE STRIPPED BARE): this is very thorough and SLANTED - but that's okay. I purchased the entire Roxy/Bryan remasters and Buckley's harsh assessment of some of Ferry's solo work has made me play his solo recordings OVER and OVER and they only get better and better. He is a CRITIC so he is CRITICIZING - and a gushing book over the brilliance of Bryan would probably not work; I believe this author - being of course, very British, had his view which is what makes the reading so enjoyable. However as he states over and over - that Roxy/Bryan were too smart for the U.S, audience is so apparent I can almost shed Bryan's tears. If you have had the luck to see them live (especially their recent "reunion" tour of @ 3 years ago that was so amazing I can still lose my voice just thinking of the screaming) - you know the genius of these men (and their darling Roxy Tottsies).

A treasure.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Essential Reading for Roxy Fans, Old and New 3 septembre 2005

I first learned of the existence of this book from a passing reference in a Sunday New York Times Book Review magazine; it was given a left-handed compliment (something to the effect that should you want to know all the minute details of the band's history, it could be found in this book). That's pretty much the sum of it - this is a great book about one of the greatest (and most under-rated) bands in music history. However, the author does not ignore the members' flaws and shortcomings; this is a very objective look at a band who was responsible for its limited commercial success. However, Roxy's influence on contemporary music can not be denied, far ahead of its time.
