Maybe Ed and Jeff took this interview simply because they knew it wouldn't be too serious. Knowing that Simmons wouldn't go too deep with them, keep it casual. Not acting like Chris Farley with Paul McCartney. Bill has no musical background, probably played the album once while working, and therefore isn't able to even appropriately ask a question about what instruments Jeff is playing or themes of the album. Shit, Eddie didn't even want to answer what song gets the crowd most fired up. They wanted a lighthearted conversation and they got one.
