He was recently named a Commander of the British Empire (CBE) by Queen Elizabeth II.
Speaking for the first time about the reason for the split, Ferry, now 70, said that he did not want to become a father again.
When his sales as a solo artist and as a member of Roxy Music are combined, Ferry has sold over 30 million albums worldwide.
As well as being a prolific songwriter himself, Ferry has recorded many cover versions of other artists' songs, including standards from the Great American Songbook, in albums such as These Foolish Things (1973), Another Time, Another Place (1974) and As Time Goes By (1999), as well as an album of Bob Dylan covers, Dylanesque (2007).
Other early members included timpanist Dexter Lloyd and ex-Nice guitarist David O'List, who were replaced respectively by Paul Thompson and Phil Manzanera before the band recorded its first album (early Peel Sessions for the UK's BBC Radio 1 feature O'List's playing).
Roxy Music's first hit, "Virginia Plain", made the UK Top 5 in 1972, and was followed up with several hit singles and albums, with Ferry as their lead vocalist and occasional instrumentalist (he taught himself the piano in his mid-twenties) and Eno contributing synthesiser backing.
Ferry disbanded Roxy Music following the release of their best-selling album Avalon (1982) to concentrate on his solo career, releasing further singles such as "Slave to Love" and "Don't Stop the Dance".Last year, Amanda quit her job as a London PR girl after he offered to financially support her.She is understood to be largely living at Ferry's London home and has enjoyed many trips to exotic and luxurious locations during the course of their relationship.'No one expected the fling to last, but it's getting quite serious,' a source has previously said.“It was a great combination and it’s sad that we had to go our different way.We wanted different things, that’s really the phrase.” Ferry and Sheppard married in a private ceremony at the Amanyara beach resort on the Turks and Caicos Islands. Ferry, who has just released a new solo album entitled Avonmore and completed a European tour, said he had not been dating since his marriage fell apart. I haven’t seen anyone since Amanda so it is now quite a long time,” he said.
