Small story on a possible book in the near future?

http://www.thebookseller.com/news/rizzo ... ferry.html

Obviously can't vouch for the legitimacy of it.

Thanks for posting the news!

I'd also heard whispers in the wind about this and a BF/Roxy coffee table book is long overdue (another 40th anniverary opportunity missed perhaps...).

Lets hope Team BF & the publishers get some more news out there soon to generate some pre-orders. ;)

Ageing Diletantes & Other Degenerates,
A warts and all auto biography (even if we had to put up with Michael Bracewell ghosting it ) would be my preferred Christmas gift from Mrs.Windswept.
Failing that, a beautiful TASCHEN coffee table tomb dedicated to the art and style of Roxy & Ferry would be most welcome.
Whatever it is to be, can I please request that all involved aller plus vite otherwise it will be another pair of sea island cotton socks and an Anderson & Sheppard silk knitted tie from Santa!
Regards,
Windswept.

The nature of the publisher and the extent of BF's contribution alluded to (introduce images) suggests a coffee table collection of imagery rather than an autobiography though a very welcome addition to my humble home it will be, all the same.

Nobody knows how to "repackage" The Catalog better than BF and now he'll have a chance to with classic Roxy/BF imagery in a big splashy coffee table book. It will be ready for Xmas 2014 and generate some Buzz and some income for BF. Maybe I'll buy in on a remainder table...

Nobody knows how to "mess up" better than BF and now he'll have a chance to do it again with classic Roxy/BF imagery in a big splashy coffee table book. It will be ready for Xmas 2099 and generate no Buzz and no income for BF. Maybe nobody will buy in on a remainder table..

Repackage the back catalogue, what about the "complete Roxy Music" last year?

If no-one knows how to "mess up" better than Ferry does, could I put my name forward, to go on the same "messing up" crash course he wen't on, £36 million later, please?

Ian.

This is a huge admission for me. I love Roxy Music. I have seen them live on many occassions, as in, Roxy Music. I have probably seen Bryan Ferry solo, many times more.

Sadly, Ferry solo, never re-ignited my enthusiasm for Roxy Music, the way the band did.

I will go see him on tour, this year, probably get to meet him, gladly, but as Bryan Ferry, not as the lead singer from Roxy Music.

There is a huge void there, for me. They say Ferry is Roxy Music.

Not without the other bands member's, he's not.
