Personal Quote:

It's good to have layers in your life. If I'm in a limousine on the way to the airport, I still haven't forgotten what it is like to stand in the rain at a north-eastern bus stop for hours. I do have memories of deprivation, but I don't carry them around like some bitter, left-wing hammer to beat people on the head with. The human experience is all about contrast. See more »

Trivia:

Ferry was frequently ridiculed in issues of the New Musical Express in the 1970s. This came about after Ferry reportedly took exception to the manner in which he was interviewed by journalists from the magazine. In return, variations on the spelling of Ferry's name became a commonplace joke in articles. Ironically, Roxy Music was one of the most popular bands with NME journalists. See more »
