What's the last album you bought?
Sade, "Soldier of Love."

Do you Twitter? If so, how often? What's your Twitter name? And if not, why not?
I do not Twitter. I have never gotten around to it.

What's the best use of music in film/tv that you've recently seen?
Use of the 1965 song "Do You Believe in Magic", by the Lovin' Spoonful (written by John Sebastian) as background music in a TV commercial for a Chase Bank iPhone app. This classic song was also featured in a number of films including "American Pie," "Date Movie" and "The Parent Trap."

At this moment in time, what most worries and encourages you about the music business?
What worries me most is the record industry's failure to effectively deal with music piracy. What encourages me most is that the demand for music has never been greater, and the ways for consumers to obtain and listen to music has expanded.

What is the most significant moment in the history of film/tv music?
When bands, like the Rolling Stones, realized that licensing their music in an appropriate way was not "selling out."

What is going to win Album of the Year at the Grammys?
Lady Gaga ["The Fame Monster"].
