    Default 25 Notable Athlete Musicians

    25. Alexi Lalas



    Retired soccer player Alexi Lalas was one of the most popular American internationals during his career thanks to his trademark red goatee and long locks. It’s fitting, therefore, that he also like to rock the electric guitar.
    Of course, these days he’s clean-shaven and working behind an ESPN desk. So now he probably prefers an acoustic.

    24. Trevor Pryce



    Travor Pryce won back-to-back Super Bowls with the Broncos, all while teaching himself to play the bass and piano. Of course, now that the DE is retired, he’s turned his attention to the movie business, having written a couple of screenplays and pitched numerous TV shows.

    23. Denny McLain



    I’m sure this outfit was totally hip in the 1960s. However, I can’t help but think 2x AL Cy Young winner Denny McLain looks a little like a cult leader here. A cult leader who happens to play keyboard in a Vegas lounge.

    22. Carl Edwards



    Apparently Carl Edwards’s responsibilities to his sponsor, Aflac, goes beyond the race track. Here he is jamming on stage with the Zac Brown Band, and there on his sleeve is the company’s logo.
    How long do you think it is until actual professional musicians get sponsors and have to wear their gear on stage?

    21. Darren McCarty



    Former Red Wings tough buy Darren McCarty has his own hard rock band, for which he is the lead singer. The band’s name? Yep, it’s a hockey term: Grinder.

    20. Jack McDowell



    Jack McDowell is another former pro athlete with a rock band. The 1993 AL Cy Young winner rocks with an alternative group called Stickfigure. However, even during his career he was into music, playing with a band called V.I.E.W. that apparently toured with and opened for The Smithereens at one point.

    19. Bob and Matt Bryan



    You may not have heard of these guys, but twin brothers Bob and Matt Bryan are actually one of the most prolific tennis doubles teams of all time, having won 13 Grand Slam doubles titles and spent over 300 weeks ranked #1 in the world. Of course, tennis isn’t their only genetic gift. The two also dabble in music, as you can clearly see here.

    18. Drew Gooden



    Milwaukee Bucks center Drew Gooden plays an instrument. Can you guess which one?
    Seriously, though, he’s apparently even played in some hotel lounges here and there.

    17. Brandon Webb


    As you can see, 2006 NL Cy Young winner Brandon Webb likes to play him some gee-tar in his spare time. Of course, after his career was ruined by shoulder injuries, he’s probably gone from playing Dave Matthews to playing Elliott Smith.

    I have no idea whether Nick Swisher actually plays guitar. To be honest, he seems like the kind of guy who would keep an acoustic guitar at his place just to impress chicks. (And I’m not knocking that—it works.) But I guess I’ll give him the benefit of the doubt since he does have a 90s alt-rock goatee in this photo.

    15. Wayman Tisdale



    If your name is Wayman, the only kind of music you’re going to be playing is smooth jazz. Such is the case for former NBA power forward Wayman Tisdale. After handing up his sneakers, the guy has turned into a full-on recording artist with albums titled “Power Forward,” “Face to Face,” and “Rebound.”

    I’ve recently become a Barry Zito fan. The guy was vilified by some after signing a crazy huge deal with the San Francisco Giants (based largely on his stellar performance with the A’s) and then ****ing. Then, this year, he saved the Giants’ season when, San Fran trailing St. Louis 3-1 in the NLCS, he took the mound and pitched 7.2 scoreless innings.
    Of course, the Giants went on to win the World Series. Talk about redemption.

    13. Bronson Arroyo


    From a guy who seems cool as hell to a guy who seems…well, not as cool. Here we have Reds pitcher Bronson Arroyo—yes, the guy who used to have the dreds while pitching for the Red Sox.

    Can Doug Flutie play the drums? Man, he’s wearing a badass beaded nacklace, aint he?

    11. Mike Piazza



    Mike Piazza: also plays the drums. I wonder if he’s ever hopped up on stage with Belle and Sebastian and joined them for their song, “Piazza, New York Catcher”? I hope so, because that would be so weird.
