Did 'Nazi' remarks cost Roxy Music man his advert deal?

Bryan Ferry dropped by Marks & Spencer
Bryan Ferry has been dropped by Marks & Spencer - sparking suggestions that his controversial remarks about Nazis maybe to blame.

The Roxy Music singer was the face of the high street chain’s menswear range.

The singer was recently quoted by German magazine withWelt am Sonntag, saying: “My God, the Nazis knew how to put themselves in the limelight and present themselves.

Leni Riefenstahl’s movies and Albert Speer’s building and the mass parades and the flags - just amazing. Really beautiful.”

Ferry’s agent confirmed that the singer is no longer being used by the high street store, and that negotiations were not taking place for a new contract.

However,Marks & Spencer have said that the never normally use any model twice and that they accepted his apology in March for the comment.

A spokesperson for the company told BBC News: “While we are still planning our autumn advertising campaign, it is highly unlikely any model will be used for more than two seasons for the Autograph range.

“We welcomed Mr Ferry’s apology over his remarks and he completed his existing contract.”

Labour peer and former war crimes investigator Greville Janner said: “It is deeply offensive when people think they can joke about Nazis. Riefenstahl was part of the Nazi movement and the Nazis were murderers. And the mass parades he refers to make me vomit. Marks & Spencer should have a serious rethink about employing him.”

Meanwhile, Ferry is set to play the Princess Diana memorial concert which takes place on July 1 at the new Wembley Stadium in London.
