What is the best album ever created?

RL: I am going to stick with hip-hop here, and I have to give at least four: Nas's "Illmatic," Notorious B.I.G's "Ready to Die," Jay-Z-'s "Reasonable Doubt," and A Tribe Called Quest's "The Low-End Theory." Also, I know I said hip-hop, but you MUST own Miles Davis's "Kind of Blue" and John Coltrane's "A Love Supreme."

What's the best band to see live?

RL: OutKast, because you never know what to expect; and the Beastie Boys, because they are three Jewish boys from Manhattan who can rap, and it doesn't get much better than that.

What song pumps you up?

RL: Wow. There are so many...to name a few: "Cherchez Laghost," by GHOSTFACE KILLAH; "Just a Friend," by Biz Markie; "We want the Funk," by George Clinton and the P-Funk All Stars... and when on the dance floor, obviously, "Poision," by Bel Biv Devou...now you know.

What song brings you down?

RL: Anything by Rob Thomas, John Mayer, or Celine Dion.

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

RL: HAVA NAGILA (English translation: "Let us rejoice and be glad!") A traditional old-school Jewish party song...you all know how it goes...

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