The chat sees them talk about comedy and Roxy Music‘s classics gigs and fans, plus Fielding discovers that his hero’s first ever gig was actually a unique moment in rock ‘n’ roll history, Bill Haley And The Comets‘ first ever European tour.
“There was a Radio Luxembourg competition and I won it, it was two front row seats, and it was the first rock ‘n’ roll tour where the Teddy Boys congregated and went down and wrecked the seats,” recalls Ferry. “It was amazing, I was only 10. I took my big sister.”
Asked by Fielding if he was “quite frightened ” by the violence, Ferry replied: “No I was quite up for it! I was sitting in my school blazer just watching.”
