#SuperLeagueMusic: Ben Westwood 🎶

What will Ben be listening to tonight against Salford?

Ben Westwood loves his music, we asked him a series of questions ahead of Warrington's game against Salford on Sky Sports 1 this evening:

 

1. WHAT MUSIC DO YOU LIKE TO LISTEN TO BEFORE A MATCH AND WHY?

- A mixture of things, all Rock & Roll such as Kings of Leon and Foo Fighters. It’s just my kind of music, I like to mess about and bang drums with the kids.

 

2. WHAT SONG(S) DO YOU LIKE TO LISTEN TO AFTER A WIN?

- I don’t really listen to music after. I just sit and relax and chill out to a bit of peace and quiet and catch up on some TV, Emmerdale and Corrie 📺

 

 

3. MOST EMBARRASSING SONG IN YOUR COLLECTION?

- I would have said Justin Bieber but he has come back a bit hasn’t he. When I put shuffle on I usually get some nursery rhymes coming on with the kids. One minute it's Foo Fighters blaring out and the next it's Three Blind Mice 🐭

 

4. FIRST GIG YOU EVER WENT TO AND WHAT MEMORIES DO YOU HAVE?

- A U2 concert in 2005 at the Etihad Stadium was the first proper gig I went to. I had just moved over to Warrington and got to know my boss Simon Moran. I also went to Party in the Park in Leeds as a kid.

 

5. IF YOU COULD BE THE FRONTMAN OF ANY BAND WHO WOULD IT BE? 

- The Liam Gallagher role in Oasis, or Noel Gallagher he is even cooler.

 

6. DO YOU HAVE A DRESSING ROOM DJ? IF SO, WHO IS IT?

- We don’t really have a dressing room DJ. Every week somebody is pulled out of the hat, and whoever has been chosen plays their playlist at the final weights session before the game, in the stadium during the final run, and in the dressing room before the game. I haven’t been chosen yet, still waiting for mine.

Westwood will be hoping Sandow can repeat his heroics from last time out

7. WORST MUSIC TASTE IN THE DRESSING ROOM?

- George King's is bad. Actually Benjamin Jullien, he played French music and it didn’t get us pumped let’s just say that. We still won though!

 

8.WHICH GROUND IN SUPER LEAGUE PLAYS THE BEST INTRO MUSIC?

- Wigan used to come out to Now We Are Free from Gladiator, that was bouncy and pretty cool. Wigan is my favourite away ground and the atmosphere is great.
