I received a reply from the lovely Mr Lippman:
Hi! Mike here!
Mr. Ferry and I have some serious reservations about the content and tone of your little essay here. First of all, in my most recent conversation with Bryan he assured me that I am “of the finest caliber.” So perhaps, in fact, it is YOU who are making the typoes! The only person who would doubt the validity of The Real Bryan Ferry is a doubter. I can guarantee 100% iron clad that Mr. Ferry has no time for doubters. Also, how DARE YOU insinuate that Mr. Ferry has lost his facilties simpley because of His Knowledge concerning The Golden Kingdom Of Dreams. I am generally quite a cheerful person (hi!), but this saddens my heart greatly. I’m afraid I’m going to have to assure you that a legal preperation is in the works for not one, but now TWO, slanderers.
With Regret But Still A Smile,
How nice to hear from Mr Lippman- or Mike; I hope he doesn’t mind if I call him that. It’s not often that a prominent attorney from the US takes the time to reply to my Tumblr posts, so I feel extremely privileged that someone took the time in this case.
