Strumming it the Wright way

Ever thought we’d use John Wright and rock music in the same sentence

Ever thought we’d use John Wright and rock music in the same sentence? Well we must, for the soft-spoken New Zealand coach is a keen guitarist and a fan of the Red Hot Chili Peppers. In Bangalore on Friday for the Royal Challengers Bangalore-Pune Warriors IPL game, he was spotted pottering about a hotel lobby with a guitar.

“I’d have to say the Chili Peppers are my favourite band,” he told a Hindustan Times journalist. “I like their musical style.” And his favourite RHCP number? “It has to be Under the Bridge, that song is a classic.”
