Roxy Music and solo career
Bryan Ferry showed an interest in music very early, and was parallelly pursuing a career in art for some time. When he was 23 he already taught art in London and in the same time he was singing in several bends. In 1970. he formed Roxy Music, the band that marked the first half of his career. Band made six albums in the seventies, and many of Ferry’s greatest hits are from that period.
Ferry’s became a solo artist in 1983. His first solo album, Boys and Girls, topped the UK charts in 1985, the first solo album to achieve that. From end of 80’s to early 90’s Ferry was mostly recording and his next two albums, Taxi and Mamouna were huge successes. With the beginning of a new century, Ferry assembled Roxy Music once again, a to this day he is occasionally performing with the band. His new solo album, Avonmore, was released in 2014, and especially since than, Ferry is on frequent tours.
Hits of the 20th century
It is not easy to pinpoint which Ferry’s songs are his greatest hits, as it is a matter of taste, and his songs from the 70’s and early 80’s are different than songs he recorded in recent decades. His most well known hits are, among others, Let’s Stick Together, More Than This, Slave to Love, Jealous Guy and Kiss and Tell.
