What is the best album ever created?

BM: Jeez. Couldn't really tell you. Too many! But I will say that "Led Zeppelin III" never gets old. It ROCKS!!!! ooooh ooh oooh....and Creedence Clearwater Revival? "Chronicle: The 20 Greatest Hits"! mmmm mmm mmmm.

What's the best band to see live?

BM: Bob Dylan, et al. When he's in a good mood.

What song pumps you up?

BM: "Juicebox" by the Strokes. Definitely. You know, I have two other really random ones that have really awesome beats: Van Morrison's "Domino" and Prince's "When Doves Cry." Play them loud, you'll know what I mean. You can't keep your head from dancing.

What song brings you down?

BM: Any Elliott Smith . "Somebody That I Used to Know" brings back memories?and Jeff Buckley's version of "Hallelujah."

If you were dictator of a small country, what would be your national anthem?

BM: If it's an island and there are lots of sailors and everyone were to adorn me with braided chains made of finest silver from the north of Spain, then "Brandy" by The Looking Glass...duh.

If you were onstage with a mic in front of thousands of screaming fans, what would you say?

BM: Shut the f--- up and let me finish! [dwindling screams followed by eventual silence]. I want a puppy. Anyone got a puppy?
