    Thanks! Google translate does a decent job

    Is it me or have we completely missed the point with Mr. Mason? While he may well have made millions drumming for Pink Floyd - it seems to me that he's made many, many, more millions buying/selling Ferrari's? Which makes him more an elite used-car salesman than a musician, surely? Reading the interview, i was reminded of the story in Inside Out where he casually states that he sold another one of his Ferrari's to raise a few million pounds to fund the Momentary Lapse of Reason tour (because they couldn't get any sponsors to sign up initially)

    Not really, just that he was fairly wealthy to start with and has generally invested wisely.

    I'm not sure he was wealthy to start with, I think he came from rather humble beginnings. But yes, he definitely invested wisely in cars.
