Musician backs off Nazi praise
A British rock singer apologized for praising the aesthetics of Nazi Germany. Bryan Ferry of Roxy Music issued an apology this week after Jewish groups voiced outrage at an interview he gave to a German newspaper in which he marveled at the "really beautiful" iconography and staging of Nazi events. "I, like every right-minded individual, find the Nazi regime, and all it stood for, evil and abhorrent," Ferry, 61, said in the statement.
