Roxy Music In The 1970s provides a superb insight into one of the most exciting and ambitious bands of all time.
Comprising a core of Bryan Ferry, Phil Manzanera, Andy Mackay and Phil Thompson, but also featuring, at different times, Brian Eno, Eddie Jobson and John Wetton, Roxy could never be easily pigeonholed.
Ferry, Manzanera, Mackay and Eno additionally embarked upon solo careers, which, between them, were responsible for a complex catalogue of songs stretching from vintage ballads to electronica, from Wagner’s Valkyries to David Bowie’s Low.
Written by respected critic Dave Thompson, this book documents the histories of both band and band members, analysing and detailing every album and single released by the Roxy family throughout its defining decade.
Dave Thompson is author of over 150 books, including the autobiographies of Sylvain Sylvain (New York Dolls), Walter Lure (the Heartbreakers), Motown legends Eddie and Brian Holland and Judy Dyble (Fairport Convention). His other books include biographies of David Bowie, Hawkwind, Roger Waters, Robert Plant, Sparks, John’s Children, Jeff Beck and Kurt Cobain. Among his most recent publications are The Grunge Diaries 1990-1994, I Feel Love and Rozz Williams in his Own Words and Beyond (all 2021). Thompson’s writing has also appeared in Mojo, Record Collector, Rolling Stone, Melody Maker, Q, Alternative Press and Goldmine. He lives in Delaware, USA.
