NORTH- East musician Bryan Ferry is to receive an honorary degree from Newcastle University.

The chief songwriter and lead vocalist with the critically acclaimed band Roxy Music will receive an honorary doctor of music degree at a ceremony on Friday, July 11.

It will be the second time he will have graduated from the university.

Ferry studied fine art at Newcastle and completed his studies in 1968. Four years after he left, Roxy Music emerged. They went on to become one of the most influential bands of the 1970s and 1980s, enjoying critical and commercial success and producing eight classic albums including For Your Pleasure and Avalon.

He said: “The four years I spent at Newcastle University’s fine art department were crucial in my development as an artist and musician.

"While I was there, studying under the great Richard Hamilton, I met many like-minded students who became friends for life. Coming back to the university to receive this award will rekindle so many memories of an exceptional period in my life.”

Recently, he agreed to be patron of a £3.5m fundraising campaign to redevelop Newcastle University’s Hatton art gallery.
