Here's another one in German:

Thanks again for sharing. Some interesting bits on here. Especially the "one album per year" bit. But he is now also selling his sports car collection and motorcycles.

Actually, he seems to have sold the Maserati some ten years ago (https://www.ultimatecarpage.com/chassis/3406/Maserati-300S-3035.html). Maybe he's still got the Austin Healey, and probably a few more.
I'm curious to find out what motorbikes he has these days.

Yes, so typical of MK. Randy Newman once said that Mark is such a nice guy that he'd find something nice to say even about Hitler or someone like that.

I have the feeling that the author didn‘t really talk to Mark. The line of this interview differs from all the videos or podcast I have listened to in the last week!

And that's interesting because I didn't read it as something nice. More than that, we allow dictators to reorganize the world. And that's terrifying.

It seemed to me quite similar and with the same kind of topics we've seen lately.

Yes, it reminded me a lot of the Rock Classic interview (German), almost verbatim in some places. Maybe he did one zoom conference for all the German journalists?

Agreed.
