When Roxy Music came onto the British music scene in the early 70s a lot of the spotlight shone on their frontman, Bryan Ferry. During the 70s and 80s they had much success with hit singles like “More Than This” and “Jealous Guy”. While the band was together and successful Bryan Ferry began a solo career and now at the age of 68 he is forging on.
Bryan Ferry is responsible for the creation of a sub genre of pop music called sophisti-pop. Always dapper looking in a suit Bryan Ferry has brought a touch of class and sophistication to the pop world. He is best known for his songs “Slave to Love” and “Don’t Stop the Dance”.
Besides his own songs Ferry has gained quite a rep for covering other artists’ songs. He has done Cole Porter’s “You Do Something To Me”, Lesley Gore’s “It’s My Party” and The Rolling Stones “Sympathy For the Devil”. Between Roxy Music and his solo career he has sold over 30 million albums.
