According to a published report, NHL Hockey’s New York Rangers Defenseman Dan Boyle spent part of this past summer as a roadie for his favorite band, Faith No More. Boyle’s tenure with the band included their east coast dates of Washington D.C., Philadelphia, Boston and New York so he could continue to train for the 2015-16 NHL season. His responsibilities for the tour included carrying instruments, setting up the stage, and giving out VIP tickets. Boyle met the band and became friends with Mike Patton and others when he was a member of the San Jose Sharks.

They were my favorite band growing up. I told [the team’s] p.r. guy, ‘I don‘t care if I have to stand in the top corner of the venue, get me in there.’’’

If I wasn’t a hockey player, I’d be the lead singer of a band,”

We had a couple of beers, but it wasn’t sex, drugs and rock ’n’ roll. Had I toured with them 25 years ago, this might be a different interview.”
