Chelsea stars form a band

A pair of Premier League footballers have formed a new group.
Great deals on musical instruments

Two famous Chelsea players have put their footballs aside and picked up musical instruments to form a band.

Didier Drogba is on bass guitar in the group, with midfielder Florent Malouda behind the drum kit – and the pair hoping to get either Joe Cole or John Terry to agree to be the singer.

Malouda told the Sun: "We are just at the beginning of the process and trying to start something special.

"When we are ready, we will show you the results."

Malouda added that one of his musical inspirations is Coldplay, a band he said played "one of the greatest shows I have ever seen" when he watched them appear at Wembley.

Drogba's bass guitar has a rather special history - it was given to the striker as a gift by Wyclef Jean.

Another famous sportsman to have musical instincts is England cricketer Graeme Swann – the spinner is the frontman in Dr Comfort and the Lurid Revelations.
