Bryan Ferry makes (Roxy) music at Hop Farm

Almost 40 years after releasing his first solo album, Bryan Ferry opens for The Eagles at the first night of Hop Farm Festival 2011.

The Roxy Music frontman, who was awarded a CBE in the Queen’s birthday honours list, performed with a hefty band including two drummers and two dancers.

Recent album ‘Olympia’ features Scissor Sisters, Flea, David Gilmour and Radiohead‘s Johnny Greenwood.
Tonight however, it’s Ferry’s covers of Neil Young’s ‘Like a Hurricane’, John Lemon’s ‘Jealous Guy’ and Bob Dylan’s ‘All Along The Watchtower’, complete with impressive lead guitar licks, that steal the show as hot air balloons soar above the farm.
