When Dr. House picks up a guitar or sits down at a piano on 'House,' there's no stuntman playing. Hugh Laurie is a talented musician, and, as he told Spinner.com, his reverence for music "is bordering on the religious." In fact, he has plans for his music career "once 'House' is finally laid to rest."
He reinforced his love for music Thursday on 'Today' (weekdays, 7AM on NBC) in an interview with Ann Curry, and also performed a track from the album. "I can't really explain it," he told Curry. "It's been with me all my life. I was about ten years old, I heard a blues song on the radio and it was like a thunderbolt. I had this sort of jolt of electricity and I knew this music would be with me all my life."
