His claims to have killed a man are complete BS. As a journalist myself I can recognize an interview subject like him a mile away. I’m not sure I have an adequate word to describe people like him, but they’re a bane to the journalist’s existence. You leave the interview pissed off at the utter lack of substance that had just been fed to you.
True, Felix Dennis is a massive self-publicist – viz the tale of how he got a job on Oz after sending in a tape that Richard Neville then gave to the BBC.
