    My buddy is the spitting image of Mackay but yeah the Ferry resemblance escapes me.

  8. I saw Roxy Music at several different times from the promotion of For Your Pleasure until the launch of Country Life at Newcastle City Hall; every show was magnificent.

    Suddenly last year my son (now also an ardent fan) bought tickets for El Ferrari at Burleigh House, that too was excellent. He has aged, obviously, but he is still in a very good state of repair ... and his voice remains good. In addition the unbelievable talent who is Lucy Wilkins was on stage in the band that night too.

    Sadly the splendid Chris Spedding was missing, grrr.

    This great man (BF) has virtually written the soundtrack to my life.

    (As a taster, for the uninitiated, check out either Simple Twist of Fate by BF or Both Ends Burning by Roxy at the London Apollo in 2001 on YouTube,)

  9. I can only echo your own sentiments. I last saw him with Roxy at the Camden Palace (now the Koko Club) in 2005. Close enough to see the stitching on his cuffs. That was good enough for me, and I think it will be hard to beat.

    You mention Lucy Wilkins. Jorja Chalmers is a treat as well. She appears in this line up.....



    Time spent well is so rare.

    I'm reasonably sure that Jorja was playing at Burleigh House also. The great man has always had a knack of recruiting people who are at the top of their game. ....

    How could the same man write Every Dreamhome and Beauty Queen? Talent, that's how. Wonderful quality and he puts a lot of so called musical geniuses into the shade.

    Many consider Ferry deeply conservative, but if you look a little more closely at his material ('Dream Home' included), you realise he is actually unsettlingly weird.
