My first two records were influenced by the Beatles and the Beach Boys.
I grew up on oldies like the Beatles and the Beach Boys, Led Zeppelin and The Who.
I hope fans will go back and listen to the Beatles and the Beach Boys or Led Zeppelin, or put on 'Tommy' and let them experience like I did that moment when 'Pinball Wizard' comes on.
Dealing with sketch comedy and buddy teams like Abbott and Costello, Bob Hope and Bing Crosby - I just loved buddy comedies.
I was raised on Elvis Presley and Buddy Holly and discovered the Stray Cats when I was 11 or 12 years old.
A lot of the people I'd love to work with, like John Lennon, Elvis Presley, Buddy Holly, aren't alive, unfortunately.
I really like Caravan Palace's electro swing stuff. They incorporate the electronic, but when you see them live, they're all on stage playing live music. They're all playing their instruments. They drop these beats with the DJs that are so incredible.
I really, really love what I do, and there's nothing I love more than getting on stage and playing for an audience or working on a part, getting in front of the camera, and meeting all the cool people I get to meet, and going all the cool places I get to go.
I grew up on Jerry Lewis and Abbot and Costello, the Marx Brothers.
If I catch one of my fans saying something improper, a gay slur or any derogatory term, I instantly tweet directly at them and say, 'This isn't how we do it.'
My favorite sport is baseball; my cousin is pitcher Heath Bell.
Leslie Nielsen was my favorite growing up; getting to work with him was amazing.
Paul McCartney would be the end all, be all. To work with Paul would just be amazing.
The best place for me is in my car, listening to my stereo. I am 'Mr. Karaoke Guy' in the car, completely. I just go with it and don't care what anyone else thinks - I'm singing, man!
My first guitar was a Gretsch 6120, and I just loved listening to artists like Elvis, Chuck Berry and Stray Cats.
When I was 5, I did a commercial for Whirlpool sitting on a tree stump eating a popsicle that dripped all over my clothes.
Artists like Justin Bieber or Lady Gaga have more sway over popular minds than a politician.
I had the opportunity to do a movie with Roger Daltrey of The Who. In the movie, I played a guitar student. Since I had to learn how to play somewhat for the movie, I was introduced to the guitar.
When I picked up the guitar for the first time, it opened up a whole new world for me. I became obsessed with writing and playing.
