Brian Eno was born on May 15, 1948, in Suffolk, England. His father was a postman and his mother was a homemaker. Eno has two older sisters. He was educated at a local primary school and then at Woodbridge Grammar School. Eno’s interest in music began at an early age; he learned to play the piano and the guitar, and he also sang in the school choir. After graduating from high school, Eno studied art at the Winchester School of Art. He later dropped out of art school and began working as a graphic designer.

Eno’s music career began in the early 1970s, when he was a member of the rock band Roxy Music. He left the band in 1973 and began a solo career. Eno’s solo albums include “Here Come the Warm Jets” (1974), “Another Green World” (1975), and “Before and After Science” (1977). He has also collaborated with other musicians, including David Bowie, Robert Fripp, and Talking Heads. In recent years, Eno has composed music for film and television, including the soundtracks for “The Lovely Bones” (2009) and “Trainspotting” (1996).

Eno is considered one of the most influential musicians of the past 50 years. His work has been praised for its originality and for its ability to cross genres. Eno has won numerous awards, including the Grammy Award for Best New Age Album (for “Ambient 1: Music for Airports”) and the Polar Music Prize.

Eno has been married twice. His first marriage, to Anthea Norman-Taylor, ended in divorce. He has two sons from his second marriage, to Harriet Welch. Eno currently lives in London with his partner, artist Suzanne Freeman.

Eno is a tall man with blue eyes and dark hair. He is known for his eclectic taste in music and fashion.

Quotes

#Quote
1For the world to be interesting, you have to be manipulating it all the time.
2Well, I'm pretty sick of rock music, pretty sick of anything in that sphere. The thing is, I love playing it - I find it thrilling to make, but I know that once I make it I'm never going to listen to it again.
3I think I've committed the one really bad English crime, which is I've risen above my station. I was supposed to be a pop star and suddenly I'm claiming that I'm an artist of some kind.
4I like being in working situations with people where they're going somewhere I haven't been, I want to go somewhere they haven't been and together we might end up somewhere nobody's been.
5I'm a painter in sound.
6I'm often accused of being ahead of my time but it's simply not true. The truth is that everybody else is behind.
7[on Rolf Harris] I see Rolf not so much as the missing link in the history of electronic music, more as the weak link. I think, if Rolf is going to be remembered, it won't be for his Stylophone but for 'Sun Arise'. That's one of the great records.
8I'm an atheist, and the concept of god for me is all part of what I call the last illusion. The last illusion is someone knows what is going on. Nearly everyone has that illusion somewhere, and it manifests not only in the terms of the idea that there is a god but that it knows what's going on but that the planets know what's going on. Astrology is part of the last illusion. The obsession with health is part of the last illusion, the idea that there's that if only we could spend time on it and sit down and stop being unreasonable with each other we'd all find that there was a structure and a solution underlying plan to it all, for most people the short answer to that is god.

Facts

#Fact
1His brother, Roger Eno, is also a composer and musician.
2Winner of the 1994 Brit Award for British Producer.
3Awarded the Frankfurt Music Prize in 1994.
4Was commissioned by Microsoft to compose and record the 3 1/2 second "start- up sound" for the Windows 95 operating system. Ironically, he composed it on an Apple Macintosh computer.
5Was run over by a taxi in 1976 after slipping on a wet London street
6Daughters: Hannah, Irial, and Darla
7Wrote the song "Dead Finks Don't Talk" about his ex-bandmate Bryan Ferry. Ferry and Eno argued about the creative direction of their band Roxy Music after the second album. Eno however, claims to have subconsciously written the song about Ferry, as he didn't realize it applied to Ferry until a friend asked about it.
8Wrote the song "The Paw Paw Negro Blowtorch" about a love affair with a man from Paw Paw Michigan who could allegedly light anything on fire on which he breathed
9Coined the term "ambient music", and recorded the album "Ambient 1: Music for Airports", considered to be the first ambient recording ever.
10Created a set of oracle cards called "Oblique Strategies", which have phrases on them instead of artwork. Unlike Tarot cards, which are illustrated and meant to answer life questions, the phrases on "Oblique Strategies" cards are meant to suggest unconventional solutions to creative dilemmas such as writer's block.
11Reportedly loves word puzzles. He wrote and recorded a song entitled "King's Lead Hat", and the title anagrams into Talking Heads, a band he has worked with. His own name anagrams into "One Brain".
12His only vocal appearance in a Top-10 song was as a backing vocalist in the Talking Heads' recording "Once In A Lifetime".
