Roxy Music were founded in the early 1970s as a collaborative project between Bryan Ferry and Brian Eno, and emerged as one of the foremost bands of the time. An early hit single /Virginia Plain, which reached number 1 in the British charts, was to be cathartic within the somewhat moribund British music industry scene, and their significant influence is still felt today. Brian Eno left after a few years to develop a successful solo career. Bryan Ferry is also noted as a solo performer, usually of lounge-lizard style ballads, an art-form which he seems to have made his own in recent times. The band also fostered the early career of Phil Manzanera.
The band recently reformed and toured extensively; notably, the only significant one-time member missing was Brian Eno.
