Not all athletes are just big jocks. Some of them do other things like playing instruments. These 15 athletes are pretty impressive at playing instruments as well.
While not taking left turns on the NASCAR circuit, Edwards enjoys making his own music. That's when he works his magic on the six-string.
The very average basketball player is a well above average when he's going ham on the ivory. His skills on the piano cannot be denied.
The former ace of the Diamondbacks must have taken to the guitar while rehabbing from his number of injuries. He's retired now, so maybe an album is in the making.
Swisher is a pretty crazy guy, so it doesn't take much imagination to think of him rocking out with a rock band. Him jamming out on the electric guitar while swinging his head from side to side is easy to imagine.
The former lefty ace is yet another guitar-playing athlete. It's unknown why so many athletes prefer the guitar to other instruments, but Zito has some serious skills.
It must be something about pitchers having so much free time that draws them to the guitar because it seems like several pitchers like the instrument. Zito could start his own rock band with all the free time he currently has.
Quarterbacks really know how to rock out. Flutie was always an underdog because of his small size and stature, but he can really play the drums. He could have you head bobbing in no time.
One of the greatest hitting catchers of all time, Piazza passes the time away on his drum set. It must be nice for him to sit down while playing after crouching on his knees for nearly two decades behind the plate.
While he's not saving pucks on the ice, King Henrik is rocking out with his guitar. I wonder if he's ever tried playing in full goalie gear before.
Daly hasn't been great on the PGA tour lately, but he does play guitar and sing. The most surprising thing about that? He's actually pretty darn good.
It's sort of strange, but the legendary boxer actually has a musical album. His singing is notably strong, which doesn't fit his profession particularly well.
The former Yankee slugger and major-league champion has taken to the guitar in the days since his retirement and has gotten pretty good. He will actually play publicly from time to time.
Perhaps Kluwe would've been cooler with the ladies if he was more famous for his guitar playing than being an NFL punter, but that's neither here nor there. Now that he's out of the league, he's playing more guitar and has gotten pretty good.
It makes sense that one of the best fielders in major-league history would be good with his hands on the drums. Those quick hands and ability to multitask have helped him become a pretty solid drummer and singer.
Peavy was once seen singing "Go Cubs Go" in a bar when he was a member of the Padres, but he has stuck to playing guitar instead of singing. Now in San Francisco, there should be plenty of places to publicly perform.
