Bryan Ferry Leaves His Heart In Avalon
Don Waller, L.A. Weekly, 4 November 1982
"I'M BASICALLY very shy," Bryan Ferry tells me with a mock chuckle — or is it a nervous laugh? Welcome to Roxy Music-land, where intergalactic sophisticated greasers battle T-shirted masses for cult hero status in a world where style is forever, love is the drug and irony is the heaviest of mettles. So tell me, Casanova, are Cupid's eros really just another shot? Your host, mooning over a used-to-be that never was, offers champagne and novocaine cock-tales with a twist — peppermint, but of course.
