There’s something about playing guitars and riding motorcycles that seems to go hand in hand. Over the years there have been several incredible musicians who’ve enjoyed the freedom of riding a motorcycle on the open road.
Artists including Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Alice Cooper, Gene Simmons, Willie Nelson, Duane Allman, Jimi Hendrix, and Kid Rock have all had their share of wind therapy. Many of these musicians rode motorcycles in their free time, but also had major influences on their music. Many musicians wrote songs about motorcycle rides (‘Born to be Wild’ – Steppenwolf), included motorcycles in their album covers, music videos, and even their on stage performances (Judas Priest). Check out this short, but sweet list of influential musicians that also rode motorcycles. Let us know in the comments your favorite musicians who ride and if any of these artists on the list surprised you. Check out the photos below:
