Roxy Music were the first, and best, of all art school-influenced bands. Led by Bryan Ferry, the hippest Geordie in town, they kicked against the denim-clad anonymity of the early ‘70s and turned the first half of the decade into a huge glam rock party. Aided and abetted by Brian Eno, Ferry dreamt up an extraordinary kaleidoscopic music that appealed to outsiders everywhere. He also fell passionately in love with model Jerry Hall – an affair that ended sadly, and publicly, when she left him for Mick Jagger. The mid-‘70s saw rows and band splits before Roxy reformed as a slick, sophisticated, lounge-disco concern before finally imploding, after a successful US tour, in 1983.
