Slave to love….still wooing them in after all these years.
It’s been reported that Roxy Music frontman and eternal ladies man Bryan Ferry wed his 29 year old girlfriend of 2 years, Amanda Sheppard on January the 4th during a private ceremony at a beach resort on the Turks and Caicos Island.
FIrst introduced to Amanda Sheppard by one of his four sons from his previous marriage to Lucy Helmore with whom he was married for 21 years to, he set about dating the fashion publicist and found an enigmatic bond between her.
Mr Ferry is also famous for being known to having had a 2 year relationship with the then supermodel Jerry Hall before she left him for fellow musician, Mick Jagger. So much for pop icons….
Regarding the present age gap between himself and his new wife, Mr Ferry was cautious to answer:
‘The interesting thing is – and I don’t want to say the wrong thing in case I get into trouble with my girlfriend – you never really meet people your own age who aren’t married.
‘I’m very fortunate that I work in music, where you’re in touch with different age groups, either the audience or people you work with.
‘It does help. Obviously I’m not ageist.’
Of course it probably doesn’t go against you either if you happen to be a charming wealthy pop icon either…
Which is to say being a pop icon does have its currency as Mr Ferry has come to once again find out.
