Home / EPL / BBC Radio Assemble Footballer Band


The presenter of BBC Radio 5 recently decided to put together a band made up entirely of footballers, perhaps he was inspired by Wayne Rooney’s recent karaoke session, who knows. Anyway, their effort isn’t half bad, and here’s the line up:

Florent Malouda on drums in a Chelsea jersey,
Neil Danns on egg shaker,
Gareth ‘Wild Thing’ Ainsworth on lead vocals,
Alexi Lalas on guitar,
Paul McVeigh on piano,
Dion Dublin playing his trumpet,
Nobby Solano on trumpet,
Jermaine Defoe and Michael Dawson on triangle.

I've played soccer since I could walk thanks to my father and love keeping up on all the latest gear and gab. I'm in my twenties, and I'm lucky enough to have found work in search marketing for a leading soccer retailer after completing my M.A. at Georgetown in 2008. My team is Liverpool, and national side is Ireland, but I've also got a passion for GAA and a number of sports. Feel free to give me a shout on Google+
