Brian Eno Lacks Interest In Shiny Clothes, Rejects Roxy Reunion

Apparently when Bryan Ferry's website reported that Roxy Music, with its original line-up, including Brian Eno, had been "back in the studio", working on a new album, they were only part right. Eno was in the studio, alright, but he has not been working on the Roxy Music album (nor will he be joining them on their upcoming tour).

According to the EnoWeb Info Centre, "Brian popped in to visit the members of the group when they were in the studio. Hearing of this, some journalist somewhere decided that it is a truth universally acknowledged that a solo artist in possession of a fine career must be in want of tinsel jackets, peacock feathers, ego clashes, laundry ruminations and everything else that goes with rejoining a band he left 33 years ago. Great oak false rumours from tiny fact acorns grow..."

Perhaps Eno does miss the tinsel jackets, but decided they aren't worth the laundry ruminations they cause. It's unclear how the erroneous report ended up on Bryan Ferry's official website, which I had imagined was run by Ferry himself. I pictured him insisting only he knew how his website should look, and what belonged there. Figured he updated it frequently, whether traveling or at home, always clad in an elegant suit. Including a tinsel jacket, naturally, accented with a few (very tasteful) peacock feathers.

Yeah "To Turn You On"! Wish I had someone to sing it to... poor poor me.

Look at the bright side. That also means you have no one to sing "End Of The Line" about after it all goes dreadfully wrong! :) If it would have. If it would have went well, then, I really don't know what to tell you. Maybe I should have left out that last part.
