What's the best album ever made?
KH: "Chug-a-Wump," by Camp Merrie-Woode campers in '98, featuring Maya Jaafar. Big Fig?
BK: Bob Dylan's "Blonde on Blonde." "Visions of Johanna" says it all.
Who is the greatest living musician?
KH: Robert Randolph. I saw him open for John Mayer sophomore year of high school and I was blown away. He was so good I spent my only cash on his CD instead of on pizza.
BK: Mark Knopfler or Trey Anastasio.
What is the best show you've ever seen live?
KH: North Mississippi All-Stars at Bonnaroo '05. Robert Randolph made a surprise appearance. It was awesome!
BK: Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band. August 30, 2003. Labor Day weekend. Senior year. The Meadowlands. Fumes blowing in from the Turnpike. Pretty much every Jersey girl's dream.
What is the first album you ever bought?
KH: My grandmother bought me "Tubthumping" by Chumbawamba for Christmas. My musical taste was doomed from the start.
BK: The Beatles, "1962-1966" (the "Red Album").
What's your music guilty pleasure?
KH: Old school slow jams from Blackstreet, Usher, and Tyrese.
BK: Soundtracks to Christopher Guest movies, with a little Genesis on the side.
If you were dictator of a small country, what would be your national anthem?
KH: "My Way" by Usher, mostly because of the title. The lyrics aren't really the national anthem type.
BK: The West Wing theme song (one can dream), or Neil Young's "Rockin' In the Free World."
If you were onstage with a mic in front of thousands of screaming fans, what would you say?
KH: "Would you like a Werthers?"
BK: "Switch on your electric light!" Though, that might only work if you're Van Morrison.
