What’s the last album you bought?
I don’t buy albums anymore, my wife just bought MGMT.
Do you Twitter? If so, how often? If not, why not?
I have never tweeted – not on-line at least.
What’s been the best use of music in advertising you’ve recently seen?
New Balance used 15 Pump Audio tracks in an on-line mashup/advertising contest.
At this moment in time, what most worries and encourages you about the music business?
I’m worried that the single based culture is doing away with great concept records – on the other hand, I’m encouraged by the single culture that you have to have all good songs to get people to buy your record.
What is the most significant moment in the history of music and advertising?
Good Vibrations being used by Sunkist.
