- What is your opinion of classical music preceding the modern era? Baroque, romanticism, classicism, etc etc

- Are you familiar with the music of Gyorgy Ligeti?

- I think that humour pervades even in your so-called 'serious' compositions. Do you see your orchestral and chamber compositions as a comical approach to classical music? If so, is that because you're generally contemptuous of this musical medium (and, as a consequence of this, try to parody it) or is it a topsy-turvy attempt to pay tribute to the composers you admire? Stravinsky, Webern, Varese etc etc

- Do you think it's possible to evoke the feeling of 'love' (a feeling you have elsewhere regarded as futile) successfully in a pop/rock song?

- You have expressed a hateful attitude towards 'aesthetic' censorship, but do you think that ideological/political censorship is more acceptable?... nazism, fascism.. etc etc

I don't think he'd really like me if I were to ask him these questions... :D

Why did you tell an interviewer "white gas" when it's obviously "white fish"?

Could Muhammad Ali have beaten Joe Louis?

Is there anything inherently wrong with cruising for burgers?

Is this a real interview or a Sears interview?

Describe the episode when you said you've seen a UFO.

That wasn't a UFO....it was a fat, floating sofa.

What is your biggest regret, now that you have had time to reflect on it?

In the Menn/Groening interview he said he didn't care much for pre-20th century classical.

How great was the temptation to strangle Yoko Ono?
