Phil Manzanera of English rock band Roxy Music announces the new memoir named “Revolución To Roxy”. The popular guitarist shares the information about his memoir. Last year, Roxy Music reunited for a 50th-anniversary tour in the United Kingdom and the United States in 2022.
“I’ve written this memoir for my English and Colombian family, dear friends and music fans, who’ve followed my musical twists and turns for over half a century,” Manzanera said in an Instagram post.
“It’s a memoir that spans my 50’s childhood in Cuba, Hawaii, and Venezuela, when everything seemed in the brightest technicolor, to monochrome but very cool 60’s London and the start of a music career that continues to enrich my life.”
His upcoming book, set to be released on March 22, includes over 100 color and black-and-white photographs. Revolución to Roxy will delve into Phil Manzanera’s experiences with Roxy Music and David Gilmour. It will also explore his diverse family background.
From the expulsion of the Sephardic Jews from Spain in 1492 to the 1959 revolution in Cuba. Last but not least, it will touch upon Manzanera’s discovery of his Neapolitan Opera musician grandfather.
