Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech might not be getting much game time at Stamford Bridge this season due to the fine form of Thibaut Courtois, but the veteran stopper is still keeping himself busy by learning how to play the drums.

The 32-year-old has uploaded two videos to YouTube over the past 48 hours which show him rocking out to tracks by Foo Fighters and Coldplay, which highlight a clear progression in the complexity of his drumming.

Cech's first post is a tribute to his favourite American rock band, covering the song titled 'Walk', where he delivers a convincing impersonation of Dave Grohl, the former Nirvana drummer and founder of the Seattle-based group.

"It is not perfect but I wanted to do it in one take without correcting it ;-)" commented the Czech Republic international underneath the video.

The Blues legend has previously indicated a desire to take up music professionally when he finally calls time on his football career, but nobody had any idea just how competent Cech was, despite making a cameo appearance at a festival back in his homeland last summer.

Over the years, the Chelsea star has established himself as one of the most consistent custodians between the sticks in the Premier League, but now appears to be turning his attention to making a name for himself with the sticks in his hand.

A second video has since emerged with Cech covering Coldplay's hit song 'Clocks', one of many popular tracks by the lovechild of lead vocalist Chris Martin.

"This was never meant to be a cover," he posted. "I filmed myself to compare with older video to see the progression, but you asked for more :-)"

Cech is set to be handed a rare start by Jose Mourinho in tonight's Champions League clash against NK Maribor in Slovenia. Chelsea thrashed the European minnows 6-0 in the reverse encounter two weeks ago, and can almost guarantee progression to the knockout phase with victory this evening.
