Strum Hard: Watch John C. Reilly Perform With His Bluegrass Band

After a long, hard-lived life, Dewey Cox has set aside the drugs, the women, and the double entendres in favor of some good ol’ fashioned bluegrass. Now bearded, the “Walk Hard” singer and his friends played a four-song set as part of NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert series, including a Delmore Brothers cover. When asked what happened to the Aboriginal percussionists and 50,000 digeridoos, Cox replied, “I think I’m doing OK for a 15-year-old with a wife and a baby.”

(I will take any excuse to quote the terminally underrated Walk Hard.)
