Bryan Ferry Marries Son’s Ex-Girlfriend. She’s Not as Old as Roxy Music’s “Avalon” Album.

Posted 11 Jan 2012 in Music + TV News


Well so far according to messages that I’ve been receiving , my male friends don’t have that much of a problem with it and think it’s pretty cool while my female friends are pretty much saying “Ick!” You can form your own judgment.

If you haven’t heard, what I’m referring to is the recently announced nuptials of Bryan Ferry and 29-year-old Amanda Sheppard. They’ve actually been dating since September of 2009.

It’s Bryan’s second marriage. He previously was married for 21 years to Lucy Helmore. They had four sons together, Merlin, Tara, Isaac and Otis. Bryan also had a long relationship with Jerry Hall but were never married, she of course famously ended up with Mick Jagger.

I did the math, Ms. Shepherd was not yet born he when Bryan’s classic album with Roxy Music Avalon was released. Avalon was released in 1981, she was born and 82.

 In explaining the difference Bryan said  “You never meet people your own age who aren’t married. Unless they are divorcees knocking about, that sort of thing.”

How did they meet? She was introduced to Bryan by one of his sons. It kind of went like this “Dad, this is Amanda, she’s my girlfriend” …. Yeah, not for long

Maybe love was the drug?
