Adam Gase plays guitar, jams with Melissa Etheridge

The Dolphins’ last coach was more of a Metallica guy, though Dan Campbell came off as more of a one-note player.

But new head coach Adam Gase showed a little more range, and an ability to hold his own with a different kind of musician.

Via Hal Habib of the Palm Beach Post, Gase spent some pre-concert time jamming on his guitar with Melissa Etheridge prior to a concert there last weekend.

“I go back on the tour bus and she’s plugged in. She starts playing. She goes, ‘You play at all?’ I go, ‘A little bit,'” Gase said. “A little nervousness is coming over me, like, ‘Please don’t ask me to play. Please don’t ask me to play.’ She goes, ‘Well, hey, let’s plug in.’ We start messing around a little bit, as far as trying to jam a little bit. . . .

I think it’s a good thing she carried everything and I was just making a lot of noise.”

He apparently made a good impression, as Etheridge told the crowd: “Your coach is a cool guy.”

Gase took up guitar lessons when he was an assistant coach with the Broncos, but he’s going to have to play lead now. And after following a guy who just made a lot of noise, he has a chance to pull it off.

    At first glance, I thought this was announcing next year’s Super Bowl halftime.

    I’d rather my coach was jamming with Metallica than Melissa Etheridge.

    This is just awkward.

    Wow, he’s almost as cool as my grandma

    What a cute story…. Excuse me while I go look at pictures of unicorns and kittens…

    As long as she doesn’t want to show up at practice and help him coach some drills, I don’t have a problem with this.

    I hope this isn’t the highlight of his HC career…..

    I hope coaches get drug tested too

    Well at least he has some personality, unlike wet noddle, soft, meek Joe Philbin.

    Come on folks, lighten up. The guy goes to a show, not only meets the headliner but even gets to knock out a few chords with her. Not too shabby for a evening out, I’ve heard of NFL guys having worst night outs.

    If you would have said he jammed with Slayer then I’d be impressed.

    The negative blogs are really negative today. Of course that’s to be expected. I’m glad that he got to play a little bit with Mellissa, now he’s ready to jam with Willie Nelson and family gang. Bill Who would not want to plug in with a big time singer of your choosing?

    Reminds me of Shane Battier with Jimmy Buffet.

    He showed more personality in one day than Philbin showed in four years.

    Good pic of him.

    This was part of a charity event the team puts on for cancer which has raised millions of dollars. Gase doesn’t just wonder up to celebs at concerts to jam with them on the bus.
