this Gentile from the South thinks this is a fascinating interview. Hey, Lenny: ask him for his opinion about Elvis's decline and whether he was still doing work with him before he died.

It would be a new day if Lenny didn't have a Jewish theme guest or topic. Remember they make up 3% of our population!
