Bryan Ferry's "Fuhrerbunker"

Wasn't sure if he had any cryptonazi sympthaties. I'm still not. But I begin to understand suspicions about him:

Ferry, who is about to embark on a UK tour to promote his latest album, made his comments to the German newspaper Welt am Sonntag.

He said: "My dear gentlemen, the Nazis knew how to put themselves in the limelight and present themselves.

"Leni Riefenstahl's movies and Albert Speer's buildings and the mass parades and the flags - just amazing. Really beautiful."

He then blurted out: "I call my studio in West London - no, I have to stop because you're German."

But when the term "fuhrerbunker" was suggested, he admitted: "You surprised me. Normally I always say to German journalists, 'My headquarters'. That is less shocking."

Could just be a joke, of course. Maybe some joke about the isolation and delusions of living in the "fuhrerbunker," where Hitler famously ordered about paper armies that had been wiped out in the real world months before. Could be some sort of joke about artistic delusions and megalomania.

On the other hand....

Thanks to JackM.

Sorry for all the backfilling today... I just can't seem to get up a single story without left-footing it today.
