Watch as Chelsea goalkeeper and expert drummer Petr Čech plays drums for Eddie Stoilow at Czech music festival Rock for People.
After just two rehearsals, Čech joined Czech band Eddie Stoilow for a cover of Smells Like Teen Spirit by Nirvana and showed off his drumming skills at the country’s largest music festival.
Rock for People started on Monday and runs the whole week, ending on Friday. It features top bands like Foals, Bloc Party and Queens of the Stone Age as well as a number of Czech artists, including Eddie Stoilow.
Čech spoke to The Guardian about his upcoming appearance:
“Oh yes, I have the festival on Friday,” he says, the apparent afterthought an appearance at the Czech Republic’s equivalent of Glastonbury, Rock for People, where 12,000 will squeeze into a tent at one of the event’s six stages to listen to the goalkeeper drum with the indie-rock band, Eddie Stoilow. Muse and Arctic Monkeys have topped the bill in recent years, while acts over the preceding four days vary from Queens of the Stone Age to Foals, Bloc Party to Thirty Seconds to Mars. Cech has crammed two rehearsals into his hectic schedule. “It’ll be nerve-racking,” he says. “If the drummer goes wrong in a band, the whole thing falls apart.”
