In a recent interview with Frank De Blase, Maroon 5 guitarist James Valentine talks about his tennis game.
I wanna talk more about my tennis game.
Sure. How’s your tennis game coming along?
It’s coming along pretty good. I’ve been playing pretty much every day even when we were in Switzerland – they have beautiful clay courts over there.
Does it help your guitar playing?
I swear to God it does. There’s this book called “The Inner Game Of Tennis” that sort of set me on this idea. You know, on the court, just looking for the zone where you can just play effortlessly…and that’s what you’re looking to do on stage or in the studio
So when we see you on stage with an elbow brace, we’ll know why.
