Los Angeles: Still a slave to love

From the LA Times 6th August 2001 by Patrick Day

During the 1970s, there was nothing on the musical scene quite like Roxy Music. Combining art-rock, pop, soulful crooning and a forward-looking electronic sound, Brian Ferry, Brian Eno and the rest of the English band's members had a hand in pushing music from the acoustic glories of the '60s through the synth-laden tracks of the '80s while peacefully co-existing with the disco bands of their own decade.

At the height of Roxy Music's critical and commercial success, frontman Ferry decided to disband the group and carry on with a solo career. Now that a couple of decades have passed, the time for a comeback seems right and Ferry has reunited the band, minus Eno.

The musicians are now well into their 50s, but that hasn't stopped them from releasing a new live album and going back out on the road. Like digging your leisure suit out of the closet and putting it on again, Roxy Music's new tour will be either embarassing, exhilarating or both.
