What's the best album ever made?
GM: Either The Beatles' "White Album" or "Master of Puppets" by Metallica. Everyone knows how amazing the "White Album" is, with "My Guitar Gently Weeps" and all, but "Master of Puppets" was my life in high school and is nearly flawlessly executed.
Who is the greatest living musician?
GM: Technically, I would go with John Petrucci. He is incredible on guitar and still has unique voicing in his music. However, Doug Martsch, in my opinion, deserves so much more credit than he has gotten recently. Built to Spill will rule the world.
What is the best show you've ever seen live?
GM: Metallica, Summer Sanitarium. Incredible two-hour set?all old material and then an hour-long encore, which featured the heaviest-hitting songs. My friend and I couldn't speak or move our heads afterwards (yes, George Martinez was headbanging).
What is the first album you ever bought?
GM: Third Eye Blind's self-titled album. Gotta love the doo-doo-doo's on "Semi-Charmed Life."
What's your music guilty pleasure?
GM: I'm not sure how guilty this is, but I am growing more and more obsessed with the Monkees. "Hey, Hey We're the Monkees" is one of the greatest songs ever written.
If you were dictator of a small country, what would be your national anthem?
GM: The R-E-C-Y-C-L-E song from "Rocko's Modern Life." That way, we could be environmentally conscious while also trying to bring back one of the greatest cartoons ever made.
If you were onstage with a mic in front of thousands of screaming fans, what would you say?
GM: David Wright is a god?and can anyone loan me a couple hundred bucks?
