Video: Bryan Ferry
Roxy frontman speaks to Quietus editor John Doran about the past four decades of recording music
ROXY Music frontman and solo artist, Bryan Ferry, speaks about his four decades of making music, an alarming encounter on an flight to Nairobi and the uninspiring image of Alt-J in a new series for Noisey.
Ferry is the first to be interviewed on the series, entitled ‘The British Masters’, hosted by Quietus editor and Stool Pigeon writer, John Doran. In each episode, John will be interviewing influential and legendary figures from British popular music.
Explaining the premise of the show John says: “Some of these characters will be more famous than others, some better dressed, some will have better musical chops, some will have a firmer grasp on reality and some will have a better sense of balance but all of them will be masters. And by masters we don’t mean people who keep slaves – although we’ll be speaking to at least three people who like to chain visitors and tradesmen up for recreational purposes.”
