Merci pianoman,
What a great interview.
You can feel the level of creativity. It really is quite extraordinary.
Sometimes I think that the peak of creativity in all arts is achieved when people are in their late twenties and thirties then, the theory is blown out of the water when one of my favourite authors produces one of his best books in his early eighties!
That said, for these guys those years were truly golden.
It also crosses my mind that maybe our hero is at his best when he is working in a creative partnership despite the fact that he may not always like it.
Despite the fact that he was, to the best of my knowledge, a non-musician, I think Simon Puxley had a great influence on Bryan's work and I'm sure that Colin Good did albeit Colin is certainly not a non-musician. He is a musician's musician!
Salutations and good luck to all those that may be "Stranded" in Germany.
Windswept.

These were my thoughts, too, Monsieur Windswept. A great interview and an important document of the golden years of Roxy Music. BF's team should use it for the booklet of the 'Stranded' box set which is to be published soon, isn't it ;) ?

And yes, the first and second, maybe third albums of bands or solo artists are usually the best. After that they become mainstream or repeat themselves ... One of the artists that became more creative and radical twenty years after starting his career was David Bowie ('1. Outside', 'Earthling', ' 'hours', 'Heathen'), IMHO.

Thank you for posting the printed version, Roxy. The photos remind me of my youth when I collected music magazines and RM/BF articles. Ok, ok, I'm still doing that today :-D .
