Comprised of saxophonist Andy MacKay, synthesizer Brian Eno, drummer Paul Thompson and guitarist Phil Manzanera. Roxy Music, offered an elegant and refined pop of which Bryan Ferry was one of the main composers. The group known for its combination of experimentalism and sophistication, the lyricism contained in the lyrics, virtuous instrumental themes and exuberant visual production, had a fascination for fashion, glamour, cinema, for art and the avant-garde, which separated the band from its contemporaries. They did Art Rock, which oscillated between avant-garde rock and elegant pop hooks. The group managed to create a real audience and initiated the Glam movement, significant influence to the punk movement, provided a model for New Wave groups, Duran Duran, direct influence. After their first two albums: "Roxy Music" and "For Your Pleasure", the group enjoyed significant popularity in the UK. Musical disagreements, (as each had different influences and liked different bands), between Bryan Ferry and Brian Eno. Makes Bryan Ferry, let other musicians handle the songwriting. In the US, Roxy Music's best-known hits are "Love is a Drug", "Avalon" and "More Than This". This allows him to embark on a solo career. Opportunity for Bryan Ferry to release several cover albums, songs by the Rolling Stones and the Beatles ("These Foolish Things", "Another Time Another Place"). While Roxy Music strenuously pursued his career, he continued to produce albums and, unlike many artists, it was ten years later that the performer and songwriter achieved his greatest success.

Released in 2018 the album "Bitter Sweet", made later Ferry being part of the series "Babylon Berlin" (a German period drama based on the books by Volker Kutcher, set in the 1920s), on the album he brings a touch of modernity, a new and exciting way to ragtime, blues and jazz on their famous Bryan Ferry and Roxy Music tracks, it's almost like we're hearing it for the first time. And he had already made a previous album "The Jazz Age", so director Baz Lurhmann, listening to the album, contacted Ferry to record some songs for the movie 'The Great Gatsby', capturing all the glam and sloppiness of the crazy 20s. Record covers, 'all with beautiful models, all had a relationship with Bryan Ferry', and many other models and socielites. Charming man and gentleman. Different from the covers of the time. Bryan Ferry on his debut album, "Roxy Music", posted a pinup photo of Model Kari-Ann Muller, taken by photographer Karl Stoecker. French model Amanda Lear was the muse of Ferry and 'Salvador Dali', 'a "panther" woman holding a panther getting out of a car', on the album "For Your Pleasure", the futuristic, neo-noir and cover album high fashion was photographed again by Stoecker. On the "Stranded" album, Ferry sought out Marilyn Coles, playmate of 'Playboy', photographed by Stoecker. On the album, "Country Life", models Constanze Karoline and Eveline Grunwald, girls he met at a bar, and photographer Eric Bomam invited them to pose on the cover and they agreed, posing in lingerie, references to a sophisticated British magazine, mixed with a true case of a model who got involved with a politician at the time. The cover was censored, in Holland and the United States, later reedited, with another cover for the respective countries. The cover of the "Siren" album is supermodel Jerry Hall crawling across the rocks of a Greek island,a golden crown under her long blond mane, recreating her like the mermaid, luring sailors to their death. Blue filter photography by Graham Hughes, Antony Price painted the body, long pointed nails blue, adorning the ankles with blue fins. Inspired by 'Dorma by Marvel Comics', a blue aristocrat from the underwater world of comics, 'Namor the Submarine'. Her presence in Capa led her to fame, because at the time, she was starting to model. It was during this shoot that Hall fell in love with Ferry. They were engaged in a few months, but Hall would soon leave him for Mick Jagger. On the album "Manifesto", he presented a soiree of male and female mannequins, and two living models hidden in the crowd. In the album "Flesh and Blood", three beautiful women, referenced with a powerful stature. The same goes for the cover of the "Avalon" album, which features Ferry's future wife, socialite model Lucy Halmore 'her her father Patrick Helmore' rich Lloyd's agent and insurer. In a pose descending from Arthurian legend, she faces the sunrise, horned helmet and falcon ready as if she were visiting Arthur's Avalon herself, across a lake on the West Coast of Ireland, on a Helmore family estate. It was also inspired by pre-Raphaelite painting from the Victorian period. Bryan Ferry said of the cover: "A Celtic warrior queen, looking at Avalon. She carries on her wrist a Merlin - the favorite bird of prey of favorite lords." A single release of the 'More Than This' album featured on the cover of the photo a detail of Dante Gabriel Rossetti's painfully melancholy 1872 painting 'Veronica Veronese' - thus maintaining the high romanticism of the Victorian masterpiece of the general artwork of "Avalon ". 'Avalon' is an uncannily beautiful album, an album that immerses the listener in their own enchanted world - about the desire to rest. She was an inspirational muse for several songs by Bryan Ferry, as well as Jerry Hall and Amanda Lear. Roxy Music is a post modern band. Bryan Ferry is one of Rock's greatest stylists. With a lot of class and elegance. He always made it clear that his vision of art and fashion would be part of the music package created by himself. He has incorporated a striking elegance and style to his group's concert and his solo shows, and has also brought that refinement to his album covers. In musical terms, Bryan Ferry's sound is characterized by a creative and personalized dive into the worlds of Glam rock, American Black Music in its strands (Soul, Jazz, Disco Music, Funk) and Pop, with a simply absurd good taste. Lyricism in Lyrics. David Bowie said he was one of his favorite songwriters and described him as one of the best songwriters in British music. All punctuated by his crooner voice, explored with a class and a category reserved for landing singers in the history of pop. Lyrics with Lyricism. It is the proof that pop music can be a sophisticated art form. Besides having been the best dressed Englishman of the late 20th century. All Fashion Magazines say the same. His name is synonymous with Cool. Able to provide us with climatic sounds, involving and in which the listener is taken on delicious journeys through the intricacies of love, passion and the high states of the soul. Dive into Mr Ferry's Work. Good taste for our eyes and ears. (To read + Articles 2020, 2021 click on Article Archives above, Click on the month and scroll down, just read) 

Chameleonic Musician David Bowie Is Constellation Near Mars. David Bowie had several phases and styles in his creation as a musician: MOD (60s) - HIPPIE (60s) Space Oddity - GLAM (1970 - 1974) The Man Who Sold World (1970) Diamond Dogs (1974) - PLASTIC SOUL ( 1975 - 1976) Young Americans (1975) Station to station (1976) - BERLIN (1976 - 1979) Low, "Heroes" and Lodger - NEW ROMANTIC (1980 - 1988) Let's Dance (1983) and two more albums and back to rock with the band Tin Machine - ELECTRONIC (1995 - 2001) Outside (1995) Earthling (1997) - NEOCLÁSSICO (2002 - 2016) Hours (1999) - The Next Day (2013) and Blackstar (2016). His entire Creation as a Musician was guided from the beginning by his continuous quest as a man to attain Divine Enlightenment. And Bowie left all that, duly documented in his vast musical oeuvre. His Life Trajectory was ALL Inscribed in His Musical Work. David Bowie devoted himself to modern occultism. His own definition of himself: "I'm closer to the Golden Dawn Immersed in Crowley's uniform I'm not a prophet or a man of stone Just a mortal with the potential of a superman." - Quicksand. Everything documented from start to "end." With Great Style and Great Elegance. And for ALL that, he was honored with a lightning-shaped constellation. Bowie is now made up of seven stars: Sigma Librae, Spica, Alpha Virginis, Zeta Centauri, SAO 204 132, SAO 241 641 and Beta Sigma Octantis Trianguli Australis. Just as it was drawn on his face on the cover of the album Alladin Sane (1973), and the location chosen for the lightning-shaped constellation, it was very close to Mars, as in the song Life on Mars from the album Hunky Dory (1971). At the request of a radio station in Brussels, the observatory for space studies MIRA (Institute for Astronomical Research of Monterey), registered the constellation in honor of the musician. As Said, Hamlet, by William Shakespeare: There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, Than are dreamt of in your philosophy. That's why David Bowie, will forever be in my Gallery, as an example of one of the Most Elegant Men. (To read + Articles 2020, 2021 Click Article Archive, Click the month, scroll down, just read!)

Brigitte Bardot One of the Most Beautiful Women in the World, Icon. Natural Talent in Movies, Music, Fashion. 'Brigeton' as her father called her, 'Ma Brizzi' as her nanny Dada l'Itallienne called her. Braces, glasses, slight strabismus: as a child, amblyopia, visual impairment in the left eye. She was not yet blonde and her eyes were brown. Brigitte Bardot didn't have what it took to become BB. She grew up on the rue Viollet, in the fifteenth arrondissement of Paris. Her father, Louis Bardot dit Pilou, an industrialist from Usines Bardot at the Origin of Air Liquide, is very fond of feminine beauty, a lot of poetry, publishing a book of Poetry, totally his daughter. Her mother, Anne-Marie Mucel, Toti, loves herself when they look at her, is sad to be a disturbed artist and, as the bourgeois morality of the time dictates, clings to being a housewife. Brigitte grew up in a deeply Catholic family, proud to be French. She grew up in a privileged environment. She and her sister, receive a severe education, evolve into the artistic universe. They walk in front of their father's camera, passionate about cinema, and watch the Tout-Paris parade in the family's apartment. The only mirror in which she liked herself a little was the one in the dance studio. That of the great Russian professor Boris Kniaseff. Exercising, there for several hours a day. Standing out from the rest of the kids. Her legs elongate, her muscles elongate, her chin lifts toward pride. Classical dance transforms clay into a statue that we like to contemplate. Hélène de Lazareff, priestess of ELLE magazine, a great friend of her mother, discovers the young beauty she so badly needs to embody the modern girl. At age 15, she appeared several times on the front page of the magazine. Are there any photographs that are not beautiful by BB? Director Marc Allégret notices this face and auditions for 'The Laurels are Cut'. She meets Marc Allégret's assistant, young Roger Vadim. Her parents initially opposed the relationship, and asked her to wait until she was 18 to marry him. 'My parents offered to have dinner with us. I remember the contrast between this bourgeois and luxurious dinner, with butler, candles and cutlery, and the presence of Vadim in a blouse with a shabby turtleneck and long hair. He looked like a gypsy and I was crazy about it,' says BB. His father consulted a seer, accompanied by Brigitte, the seer predicted that the name Bardot would cross oceans and travel the world, his father was happy, thinking that it would be his industry that would proportionate such fame, but he was wrong, guess who it was? The beautiful blonde continued taking fashion pictures for ELLE. She landed a role in Joan Boyer's 'Le trou normand', opposite Bourvil. Now guided by a manager, Olga Horstig. She starts making a lot of movies; 'Les grande manoeuvres', 'Cette sacrée gamine', La lumière d'en face'. On their honeymoon, with Vadim BB says, they went dancing: 'My hips were rolling, throwing I was hot, I got up, I imitated love to the crazy rhythm of the drums, it was like I was in another body!(. ..) Was good! I had gone crazy! That night Vadim decided to add to his film 'ET Dieu...créa lá femme', a scene in which I danced madly and shamelessly. This sequence would go around the world'... . The following year, for the Cannes Film Festival, she decided to lighten her hair... the golden blonde she was showing on the Croisette attracted all eyes and got funding for the Roger Vadim film. Et Dieu...create there femme. A few months later it made her an international star (First French film to hit the American box office) helped her launch the BB myth. From there she continued filming Jacques Charrier's 'Babette s'en va en guerre'. 'En cas de malheur' by Jean Gabin, 'La Vérité' by Raoul Lévy, 'Le Mépris' by Jean-Luc Godard. 'Une ravissant idiot' by Edouard Molinaro alongside Anthony Perkins. A documentary by Jacques Rozier's Bardot entitled 'Paparazzi'. For, Bardot has been harassed all her life by Paparazzis, describes the unleashing of the press around the star that appears as hunted prey. The duo she forms with Jeanne Moreau in "Viva Maria!" it is a worldwide secession. She became the muse of Serge Gainsbourg, who composed several famous titles for her (Harley Davidson, Bonnie & Clyde, Jé t'aime moi nom plus, Comic Strip). She agreed to lend her traits to "Comic Strip" Marianne Rodgers, heroine of Marvel 'Iron Man' (until then played by an anonymous person). And her bust, carved by Aslan, adorned every town hall in France. Her romance with Serge Gainsbourg was one of the most beautiful love stories. Reading the Biography of "BB", and of Serge Gainsbourg. I read that Serge had a real passion and adoration for Brigitte Bardot, (Jane Birkin, said the same in an interview, was very jealous of BB, but said she was, really beautiful). And Brigitte Bardot idolized him as a Poet, Composer etc. Serge called Brigitte Bardot, asking if I could write a song for her. Brigitte then invites him to her apartment, where he had a piano. At the meeting were silent, the composer begins to hum the words of "Harley Davidson". She is afraid to sing on stage. He asks if she has champagne. She says she always has one in the fridge. They have several glasses of champagne. Serge sees in front of his eyes a confident Brigitte Bardot, who sings the future hit with sensuality. Serge makes his dream come true! The next day he sent her a Box of Dom Pérignon. A story will have started on a background of golden bubbles. The romance will last for three months. Three months of pure happiness. One night, while resting in her arms, she asks Serge to compose the love song, the most beautiful one he could compose in all its power and poetry. In the middle of the night Serge, starts to compose on the piano, turns the night! "Je t'aime moi nom plus" is born! He shows Brigitte in the morning, who doesn't hesitate for a single second to record. As they say goodbye that day, Brigitte reports in her Biography that she cut her own finger and cut Serge's finger and she sealed their commitment, mixing the blood and writing on paper "Je t'aime moi nom plus". And he was amazed. But what was already! But faced with threats from her husband, the millionaire playboy Günther Sachs, Brigitte then asks Serge not to sell her. Recorded many years later by Jane Birkin, replacing BB. A situation that really hurt French icon Brigitte Bardot, saying "I thought I was going to die when I heard the Jane Birkin version. But it was in the order of things, I didn't object to it either. This song (version) fell on me like a stone in my heart". If the moments they spent together were idyllic, the situation for the then young Brigitte Bardot was difficult. Divided between her husband (who cheated on her constantly and walked with an entourage of beautiful Models at his side), and Serge Gainsbourg. So the romance with Serge ends. (But she soon separates from her husband Günther Sachs). Serge Gainsbourg was devastated. Bardot said, "Serge was tormented with the anguish of losing me. Every meeting was a miracle for him. He meant a lot to me, but the situation was untenable, hellish." In reverence for the actress of indisputable sex appeal, a devastated Serge Gainsbourg writes the "wonderful" album "Initials BB", (listen is the sublimation of Artista Gênio). That was later taken up in commercials by Guerlain (BB's favorite perfume). In the same year he wrote the lyrics for "Comment te dire adie" for Françoise Hardy. They remained eternal accomplices. To this day Brigitte Bardot says she hasn't forgotten him, when Serge died in 1991, she says she read a quote he wrote in a magazine "When Bardot left me, it was like someone ripped my heart out with their teeth." Serge Gainsbourg, built a Parisian House, rue de Verneuil, which is a masterpiece, all inspired by Surrealism. This House was dedicated to Brigitte Bardot, with whom he thought of living in this magnificent house. Serge found redemption in the arms of Jane Birkin. BB says "It was a crazy love, a love as we dreamed, a love that will stay in our memories". Even today when we talk about Gainsbourg we still associate Bardot with him... He made Michel Melville's film 'L'Ours Et la Poupée, with Jean Pierre Cassel. "Novices", where he met Annie Girardot, who became a faithful friend. 'Les Pétroleuses' alongside Claudia Cardinale. 'Boulevard Du Rhuncom' by Lino Ventura. 'Don Juan 73' by Roger Vadim. After a guest appearance in Nina Companeez's 1973 'L'histoire trés joyeuse de Colinot trousse-chemise', Brigitte Bardot announces that she is ending her film career. She stopped at age 38, at the height of her glory, saving her skin. She takes refuge in La Madrague, in Saint-Tropez. Dedicating himself exclusively to the defense of animals. She founded the Brigitte Bardot Association; she fights seal hunting, whaling, fur trading... she is the author of several books; her memoirs, published-Initiales BB (1996), Lê Carré by Pluton (1999), Um Cri dans le silence (2003), Porquoi? (2006). BB's Beauty is a reference in the fashion world, where all hunters and model scouts look for and need to find models always in the Brigitte Bardot beauty standard. I will mention examples: Laettita Casta, Gisele Bündchen, Claudia Schiffer etc. Always the BB standard for beauty. You noticed 'Madonna's split front teeth! As for Briggite Bardot's beautiful and staggering walk, the reason is because she had amblyopia, and she could only see with her right eye, the left didn't work. Aided by her haughtiness, acquired at Ballet. She was considered the most beautiful woman in the world. Hence the reference for choosing the Models. Listen to Any Album, by Briggite Bardot, it's a voice like no other. Watch any movie, you will see all her beauty and the beautiful figure in all of them. "She lives like everyone else, and she's not like anyone else," Jean Cocteau said of her.                            (To read + Articles 2020, 2021 Click Article Archives above, Click the month, scroll down, just read)
