Please explain what just happened.
Four rabbits beat up a rattlesnake on my front lawn.
What is your earliest memory?
I was one year old and looking out the window of our apartment in the Bronx for the first time. I saw an angry, shouting man chasing a garbage truck that was apparently trying to leave him behind. I thought to myself, “Gee it’s tough out there, and kind of dirty, too.”
If you weren’t a film composer, what other profession would you choose?
As a child, I thought I was destined to be a matador. I couldn’t take my mind off of it until I got my first drum set.
