Brett Lee the bowler is fading but Brett Lee the musician is taking off

Brett Lee the bowler is fading but Brett Lee the musician is taking off. His two-man outfit White Shoe Theory has eight bookings for an upcoming trip to India and he is hoping for more.

Lee does the back-up vocals and plays bass while his mate Mick Vawdon is the front man. ''I'd love for music to be my future - who doesn't want to be a rock star,” Lee said in the Sun-Herald. ''It is my passion, no doubt about that. I've always joked that I was a musician who used his sport to prop himself up but this could be a real chance to make a go of things.”

Cricket is still No.1 for Lee, though. After a couple of years of injuries he is desperate to get back and is training five days a week. “I’m really pushing myself.”
