Less known fact: until he was 12 Brian Ferry believed Santa Claus was of Klingon ethnicity (source)

What’s the best sound in the world?
Almost surely it is the consoling swish of a bunch of new banknotes touching each other. But please, write instead something more suitable for publication, like "the elated giggle of a light-hearted child " or "the soothing purr of a content kitten".

In an essay printed on Asian Journal of Alternate Criminology, prof. Jeffrey Gutierrez has observed that your songs are "a dramatic quintessence of modernistic symbolic deconstructivism". Any comment?
In his recent letter appeared on Transactions on Psychological Studies, dr. Keith L. Martinez completely disproved that incoherent observation.

What do you think about the international situation?
It's hard to figure it when you spend your days in a pink cloud pampered by adoring fans, but on our torn planet there are places where it is difficult to find even an almost decent Long Island iced tea.

Brian, which is your favorite fruit?
It is called "Brian's surprise". In the middle of one of my studies in the Hymalayas, I discovered a little new plant, now named Rhizosponnana amara, that blooms only every 7 years. It then gives fruits whose taste reminds of bananas and coal. You have to be filthy rich even to find it unpleasant...

Where will you go on your next break from work?
For my next holiday I leased a luxurious villa on the secluded hills of Qurac. The only issue was making a transfer in Linden dollars to the good-natured property owner from Nigeria that contacted me about deal by email.

Which is your forthcoming musical adventure?
Next week I'll release an experimental recording of rap covers of Joe Cocker greatest hits, sung in Albanian, Finnish and Chinese. I worked on it for 3 years.

Brian, should you give up singing, which kind of career would you pick up?
Almost surely that of sunset photographer, since I already have quite an experience in that field.

When you were a little boy, did you see singing as a possible profession?
Might as well! Even though it actually was my second choice. First one was king of the World. Or maybe bartender, I could never decide.

And now a bunch of numbers which are not Brian Ferry's secret telephone number :
3195496420 2825936489 8155427619 9924739645 3051428098 2078297442 2421527746 3073849917 3448487502 335946363 2422124848 4867997598 8439180848 452070202 3374930711 9156397737 9850281194 925241968 744249311 997737390
To be honest, my director had patiently set up my little appointment with Brian Ferry weeks beforehand. Regrettably, I realized at the last moment that I had better things to do, like learning Polish or grooming my pet gopher. So, the transcript above is essentially based on what Brian Ferry would have probably answered if I have met him, as indicated by a telephonic poll involving a couple of random people.
