From 4 Knuckles To 6 Strings: Ex-NHLer Busts Out Tom Petty
For us at Hoser, second to hockey is our love for music. It's safe to say we really dug Tom Petty and his passing came as a shock. We grew up on his music and his videos were some of the best of the 80's and 90's. We lost a legend for sure...but, his music will live on.
As it turns out, he must have inspired a couple of hockey players. One in particular who was used to using 4 knuckles, but in a pre-game show in the Czech Republic swapped to 6 strings. Enter Ryan Hollweg, probably most noted for the ax chop to the neck by Chris Simon, giving a rendition of Tom Petty's, "Free Fallin". Well done, you beauty!
We have to admit, it's cool to see other hockey players practicing their hobbies. Maybe Hollweg can just do it....after the game. Nonetheless, we respect buddy's taste in music.
