In many ways I read this book just to understand why I should care about Roxy musicI am a fan of music in most forms and although I have picked up various Bryan Ferry and Roxy music vinyl and CD releases over the years from car boot sales and charity shops I have only really given them a cursory listen feeling much of the time that the hype generated from the build up others have given the releases doesn t translate in actualityas you can tell I m not a Roxy music fan per seHowever I did enjoy reading up on the creative process of the band and understanding how their Canon is maybe worth me revisiting just as there does seem to be some development thereThe book is in actuality a focus on the front man but given the personnel changes in the band Ferry was always likely to be the focusan unusual character in many ways a working class lad with aspirations to the gentry and this perception may be one of the reasons I struggle with the bandin fairness from reading the interviews within the book Ferry has never tried to dismiss his roots and indeed shows some pride in themHe comes across as a complicated character someone who courts the level of fame of his contemporaries but who in some ways seems to be a fragile characterThis book has given me the will to relisten to the bits I have with fresh ears so in that way job done

An unusual biography in that it focuses on a band member that according to this author s account was one of the less talented members of the group I did wonder whether Buckley s original intention was to write a biography of Roxy Music only but was persuaded by their publisher that one based on the lead singer was commercially viable The earlier sections of the book were enjoyable to read and Buckley s enthusiasm for the first few years of Roxy comes across clearly I didn t enjoy the solo years period as much though as the author didn t seem as interested and gave an account which was partial Whilst I do prefer a biographer to take a critical stance to the subject they should also give credit where it is due which didn t seem to happen here He criticises Ferry s choice of songs on the Taxi album for example on the basis that many had been covered by other artists Surely this isn t a problem if a performer puts their own stamp on the material which was definitely the case here Whilst rightly dismissive of a peculiar reading of Amazing Grace Buckley neglects to mention some of the stronger material on the album such as the atmospheric All Tomorrow s Parties and the nicely crafted Rescue Me which cleverly employed a Morse code motif as part of the rhythmThe book does benefit from interviews with Ferry and other people associated with his career but unfortunately the key personnel did not participate so the views of Mackay Manzanera et al aren t represented to a great extent It would have been interesting to hear Manzanera s reaction to original Roxy guitarist David O List s claim that Manzanera copied him note for note and bought the same guitar to reproduce the same sound At times a single source is uoted without any discussion as to the accuracy of their statement Mick Rock s assertion that Ferry was probably taking drugs at the time of the final 3 Roxy albums isn t supported by any evidence and seems unlikely when Ferry s statement of his distate of drug use is taken into accountThe weakest parts of the book find Buckley uoting irrelevant commentary from people with little relevance to the subject I am sure that most readers aren t particularly interested in Martyn Ware and Mark Radcliffe s views Buckley also uotes a typical fan on the Roxy reunion who declared that they should get Eno back in and do some new material this seemed to be included purely to back Buckley s claim that Brian Eno was the genius auteur in the band I find it hard to believe that fans only really liked the first 2 Roxy albums which made up a uarter of their output Throughout the book the enthusiasm for Eno is overblown the nadir being the reference to him having probably sold millions of solo albumsWhether you agree or disagree with the author s stance you should find this of interest as it is generally well researched and contains some interesting and amusing anecdotes Kudos is due also for the comprehensive bibliography and discography sections Not a definitive account by any means but certainly worth a look
