Andy Mackay

Ask Katy

Hi Katy, This question is for Nick, Roger or Simon. I am almost as huge a fan of Roxy Music as I am of Duran Duran. What could be better than the news that both bands are recording new material?.... yes, life is good. Anyway, what was it like working with the legendary Andy Mackay on the So Red the Rose album? Any interesting stories? Also what's with all these great sax players named Andy anyway? Can't wait to hear the new material, Ben

(from the 3:)
IT WAS A GREAT PLEASURE FOR US TO WORK WITH ANDY MACKAY HAVING SPENT MANY YEARS LISTENING TO HIM PLAY ON ROXY MUSIC RECORDS. HE CAME TO RECORD WITH US IN PARIS AND PLAYED ON SEVERAL TRACKS, MOST NOTABLY "LADY ICE" AND "ELECTION DAY," WHERE HE PLAYED A SPECTACULAR SOLO OVER THE ENDING OF THE SONG. HE WAS VERY GRACIOUS AND I THINK WE LOOKED AFTER HIM PRETTY WELL AND RETURNED HIM BACK IN GOOD SHAPE.
