Brit singer apologizes for Nazi remarks -- 'made from an art history perspective'





Singer Bryan Ferry has apologised for an interview in which he praised the iconography of the Nazi party.

The UK star is reported to have told a German newspaper that the "mass marches and the flags" of Hitler's regime were "just fantastic -- really beautiful".

Jewish leaders in Britain condemned the comments, and called for Marks and Spencer to drop Ferry as a model.

"I apologise unreservedly," the singer said in a statement, adding he found the Nazi regime "evil and abhorrent"...

Ferry said he was "deeply upset" by the publicity surrounding the interview.

"I apologise unreservedly for any offence caused by my comments on Nazi iconography, which were solely made from an art history perspective," he said.

"I, like every right-minded individual, find the Nazi regime, and all it stood for, evil and abhorrent."
