Phil Manzanera - Episode 857

Steve Cooper talks with musician Phil Manzanera. Phil is best known for being the lead guitarist for Rock & Roll HOF members Roxy Music (who he joined in 1972). Roxy’s rise was meteoric, with the band being hailed as the stylistic influence of the early 1970’s. During the next 12 years, until 1983 when the band members went on a ‘long break’, Roxy Music released a series of international best selling albums, achieving ten UK top ten albums and touring extensively throughout the world. As a writer, producer and solo artist, he has worked with many of the luminaries of modern music, such as Steve Winwood, David Gilmour, John Cale, Godley and Creme, Nico (Velvet Underground) and John Wetton (King Crimson, Asia). He has co-written material with many artists, including Brian Eno, Tim Finn, Robert Wyatt and David Gilmour. He co-wrote Pink Floyd’s single One Slip from their 1988 Momentary Lapse of Reason album.
