Some of you may remember the photo of Cory Schneider that we turned into three galleries worth of the backup netminder playing every stringed instrument under the sun with the gusto of Andrew Bird.Not simply content to splice guitars into his hands, we shopped in lutes, dulcimers, keytars, and a giant submarine sandwich. It was really stupid.
That said, it’s also the bread and butter of PITB. If we see a photo in which a guy looks like he’s playing an invisible guitar or relaxing on an invisible couch, well, we’re gonna chop the missing item in. It’s with that ethos in mind that we present this Ryan Kesler photo.
This one’s an open and shut case. Of course, since Cory Schneider is already the Canucks’ accomplished shredder, Kesler’s going to have to settle for being his rhythm section. So Here he is, slapping de bass, perhaps as a member of some sort of funk-soul fusion group?
And I’ll be honest. Kesler’s Movember moustache is giving him a curiously ethnic look, at least to my mind, so here he is as a mariachi, playing a classic guitarrón mexicano .
Come to think of it, this fits in really well with a photo of Cory Schneider that never quite made it into a gallery.
Oh man, they’re one guy short of a bona fide trio.Tags: I Find this Photo Odd, Kesler, the many axes of Cory Schneider
