Does he still rent out his Ferry so Tom Cruise can host his cruises?

Never got into Roxy Music. Can't say I'm even much of a general fan. But respect for talent. HBD, Mr. Ferry.

ha.  I saw Michael Buble last week.  AMAZING.  at one point he goes, "how many fellas, are seeing me for the first time?"  I started howling - wife has seen him 3-4 times, I finally went.

he goes, "and how many are here because yuor wife, girlfriend, significant other, begged you to be here?  well, I'm putting air in the tires of love, if you know what I mean, so, ride that bike home, Gonna be some love made tonight.  YOU"RE WELCOME, FELLAS!"

Narrator:  Mr. Buble wasn't kidding.  Wife was sexual dynamite when we got home.  "get your ass upstairs if you know what's good for you."

Avalon is one of my absolute favorite albums.

Ten years ago Ferry married his son's ex-girlfriend. Can you tell which son from this photo...? 😂

And somehow that isn't the worst thing about him..

In 2007, controversy arose when Ferry praised the imagery and iconography of Nazi Germany in an interview with the German newspaper Welt am Sonntag, citing in particular "Leni Riefenstahl's movies and Albert Speer's buildings and the mass parades and the flags". In the same interview Ferry was reported to have referred to his West London recording studio as "The Führerbunker".

Well....one morning not long after we started dating, I went downstairs to make coffee, as far as I knew we were the only folks home so I didn't bother getting dressed to go out the kettle on.
I go downstairs to the kitchen, and go to grab the kettle to fill it up when I hear a male voice behind me saying 'good morning, you must be boo?' I turn around and there's Robert Palmer sat at the kitchen table drinking coffee, I reply with a cordial 'morning mate' and leg it upstairs shouting to Jane that her dad is here and he's just got an eyeful.... Nothing majorly interesting, mostly embarrassing.... (No my name isn't boo but I ain't saying my real name lol)

Hopeful I will get to see them here in LA this Wednesday. Been a little under weather but think I can shake it off by then. I've only ever seen Ferry solo (always great), so this would be a real treat.

Yeah. I gotta struggle to separate art from artist with him.

But not as much as Hope Sandoval.

Love their music though.

I've seen Him and Them many times. Last I saw Roxy and Ferry he was wearing a leather tux. For the encore, he took his coat off and draped it over his shoulder. The crowd went wild! Suave mf.

I loved the original vinyl version of Angel Eyes, on the Manifesto album. When I bought the Manifesto CD, they had this "disco version" (I called it). Why couldn't they at least give me the original as an alternate track? Pissed me off.

Anyway, saw the "re-Avalon" (I called it) show a few years back, it was great. Hard to believe he was in his 70s.

No j/k
Hope is awesome.

Ferry is.... Kinda problematic after the weird Nazi art appreciation interview

Awesome music. Listening to Avalon with family now after this thread.

Romanticism and neo romantic art has  a relationship problem with Nazi and fascist symbolic art and pseudo mythology

Even Tolkien was uneasy knowing a lot of his romantic inspired mythos symbolism was also used by fascists.
