A couple of things to add-
Ferry is in the Vanity Fair life time acheivement hall of fame but, his fans are still waiting for he and Roxy Music to be included in the Rock and Roll hall of fame (although they do have a 1973 black shiny number on display).
With that said, it is still about the music for me.
From a style side, Ferry has morphed from glitter to country gent over the last 30 years and he is a beacon for those of us that have travelled the same 70s-80s-90s 2000s clothing path.
I wear suits and have for the last 30 years.
The styles have changed, but over the last 12 years I have found my groove and have sustained it thanks to Ferry, Cary Grant, William Powell and other "style guides" that keep me focused.
