«Он был одним из самых привлекательных людей, которых я когда-либо встречал. Его аппетит к жизни и работе был неутолим. Его тело и душа были великолепными проводниками неосязаемой красоты. Он обладал харизмой и простотою земного человека, и неприкасаемой надменностью богов. Окруженный миллионами двуногих существ, он вел уединенную жизнь человека, полностью преданного своей среде, имя которой — танец и только танец. Я не забуду его никогда».

Михаил Барышников

TSY STYLE HALL OF FAME | BRYAN FERRY.

 

Style Icon-- Bryan Ferry.

Suave Style Icon– Bryan Ferry.

*

Affectionately known as ‘The Electric lounge Lizard’, Bryan Ferry has maintained his status as one of the coolest guys going with his magic elixir of suave personal style and smooth crooning– both coming with seemingly little effort.  His tastes in all things are refined, and well documented– beautiful women, fine art, fashion, design, etc.

Among them– Ferry’s many relationships with top beauties (most famously Jerry Hall, who left him for Mick Jagger), his longtime partnering with clothier Antony Price (of London’s King’s Road, who together created Ferry’s signature image & look), and his love for beautiful spaces.  It’s been said that Ferry is the sort of rock star that would more likely redecorate a hotel room than trash it.  That says it all.

“I think I am often regarded as a bit aloof, rather snooty, serious, and humorless, which is a shame.”

“THE PIANO HAS BEEN DRINKING…” | TOM WAITS, YOUR INNER DRUNKARD.

“If I exorcise my devils, well my angels may leave too.”

–Tom Waits

In my struggle to walk the straight ‘n narrow everyday, it doesn’t help things any that the salty, taunting voice of Tom Waits is in my head saying, “Hey kid…. over here.”
