Bryan Ferry and Noel Fielding discuss Red Hot Chili Peppers collaboration - video
Bryan Ferry has said that he thinks Red Hot Chili Peppers' Flea played the "most expensive instrument known to man" on his new album 'Olympia'.

Flea is one of a number of guests on the album, as Ferry explained in the second part of NME's video interview with him and The Mighty Boosh's Noel Fielding.

"[Flea]'s a big friend of Damien [Hirst]'s," Ferry said. "When he was playing in the studio with us, he was playing the most incredible bass. It was a Fender bass that Damien had customised. It's covered with butterflies, so it's a kind of an artwork. It's possibly the most expensive instrument known to man."

In the first part of the video interview Ferry and Fielding discussed fans, classic gigs and more.

'Olympia' is released today (October 25).

Ferry also tours the UK with Roxy Music in early 2011.

The shows are at:

Newcastle Metro Radio Arena (January 25)
Glasgow Clyde Auditorium (27, 28)
Manchester MEN Arena (30)
Birmingham LG Arena (31)
Nottingham Trent Arena (February 2)
London O2 Arena (February 7)
