Eno's Roxy Reunion!
every now and then you meet some contrarian whose favorite Roxy
Music album is not one of the first two, but, for the
most part, it's standard knowledge that these are not only their
best, but also a couple of the finest rock'n'roll records ever made.
And I'll have to say that Brian
Eno, sans chops but bristling with ideas and excellent
sensibility, is somewhat responsible. After he left the band in
1973 they continued making good records (I still have them all)
and better covers, but, despite some brilliant moments, the music
never hit the same mark again. This is why I'm psyched to learn
that the rumor of Eno rejoining the fold is confirmed... sort of.
who left the group in 1973, told The Guardian that he wrote
a couple of songs for and played keyboards on the new Roxy Music
record - their first since Avalon (1982). Though he claims
he won't be touring with the band, I'd like to publicly beg him
to reconsider. I know they have their differences - but he's the
yin to their yang. Plus, Brian,
think of the dough, man!
way, look for
the new album in the fall.
