Venus Writes her own Music; Plays Guitar!

from www.venusandserenawilliams.com

Q: Venus, I'm a big fan, and I read that you take guitar lessons. What songs can you play so far? Kelly

A: Kelly, I started playing the guitar when I was about fifteen. I stopped playing when I went on tour full time back in '97. I have started up again this year and I am real rusty. So far I am working on Billy Idols White Wedding, A song called cryptonite, Complicated and ska8ter boi by Avril and Heart of Gold. Most of all I write my own stuff using the stuff I have learned from other songs. I am hoping to be playing some 311 real soon.

Some good songs in there ... besides Avril. She should join the Bryan Brothers band.

Vee once again is impressive...Those girls really seem to have all the talents...I'm sure in few years, we will hear Serena sing jazzy music like a Queen, on Venus's composition

Is there anything Venus cannot do?! Go Venus! Actually COME Venus back to the tour.

How arrogant and disrespectful it is of Venus to have other interests besides tennis!!!

Venus must be an undercover hippie.

I guess Venus is all set to retire from tennis ! With her ranking falling to new lows with each passing day i guess these 'outside interests' will keep her in good stead once she decides to 'hang up her boots'

Go Venus !!
