Everything is fraught with danger. I love technology and I love science. It's just always all in the way you use it. So there's no - you can't really blame anything on the technology. It's just the way people use it and it always has been.

I like all kinds of music. I listen to Abigail Washburn the Punch Brothers and Marc Johnson the great clawhammer player. I also listen a lot to Sirius Radio there's a lot of bluegrass there.

I was very interested in vaudeville. It was the only sort of discipline that was a five-minute act on stage which is what I really enjoyed and saw myself doing. And I bought books on it.

The banjo is truly an American instrument and it captures something about our past.

I would get records by Earl Scruggs... I would tune my banjo down and I'd pick out the songs note by note. Learned how to play that way. I persevered. There was a book written by Pete Seeger who showed you some basic strumming and some basic picking... And I kind of worked out my own style of playing.

I loved doing 'Pennies from Heaven.' Because you have to understand that I'd been doing comedy for 15 to 20 years and suddenly along came the opportunity to do this beautiful film. It was so emotional to me. I loved it. I don't think it was a good career move but I have no regrets about doing it.
