Strumming it the Wright way

Nikita Bastian

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.”
