VIDEO: Slaven is a big time rocker

rockstarSlaven is a rocker!

West Ham’s new manager describes music as utterly essential to his life and proves it here with his band Rawbau.

He’s a bit of a hero on rhythm guitar and is a man of many parts as a qualified lawyer and committed Socialist politically.

Football however, is his first love and one of his most famous quotes is: “With the reatest respect to women, football is the most beautiful thing in the world!

Outside of the game Bilic is fluent in German, Italian and English and holds a degree in law but his passion for music is demonstrated in our video.

He plays a red Gibson Explorer on “Vatreno Ludilo” (“Fiery Madness”) for the Croatian national team at Euro 2008. His love for music extends into the locker room as well, where he encourages players to listen to inspirational music before games.

At the end of 2004. they recorded their album:”Rawbau”, with 10 songs. Before Rawbau, Bilic played in the group NewEra.

  1. I prefer his old band,NewEra has got a great ring to it

  2. Lol… Sam was cooler than Slav. He used to play the trombone in the marching band of Dudley.

  3. Lets bring Rio home and back to West ham as the assistant. That would be a nice touch. Rio had only positives to say about Bilic in his autobiography “helped me so much as a youngster” and described Bilic move to Everton as a “mighty blow” “he’d given me so much confidence on and off the pitch”…. come on Rio he tutored you during the infancy of your playing career now let him do the same in your coaching career!

  4. All well & good wanting Rio back i would love it,just wonder after recently losing his missus he doesnt fancy it atm,more to the point maybe he is dedicating his time to his kids 😉

  5. Let’s do it right bring Pottsy up to number 2 and offer Rio the second team while he is getting his Badges,bring Dicksy into the male fold as number 3 and find the right person from within the family to take his place,
    But let the pass go No Rednapp

  6. I think he’s bringing his own assistant with him,some of the old boys would be nice but hopefully no fat fella in a ginger wig chewing and muttering “respect the point” and no Arry or his dog accountant either.
    Whoever he has we’re backing him all the way!

  7. Hopefully this news will stop most of the negativity thats been suffocating us all.
    there will be a few as some people arent happy unless they can ***** about something.
    we will have to wait for our mate Kev’ to put us all in our place later on… 😉

  8. ahah.. I feel that kevin is on the right track… I don’t know, It’s just a feeling I get….or maybe I’m wrong and he’s stabbing his little Slaven voodoo doll… lol

  9. Come on spoonie it’s time for the singalong
    Come on Kevin it’s time for the Big Question

  10. I’m glad at this joyous time we can all spare a thought for those less fortunate than ourselves,poor Kev was hoping til the last for the resurrection of his messiah. Who knows maybe he’ll convert,Spoonie did.

  11. Spooning is a Slaven fan just trying to find the right beat for his song
    Kevin is a lost cause not a football fan just got a man crush on big fat people from Dudley,
    Come on Kevin thumb out of mouth put down the personaly signed photo of Hippo and attack our relaxed persona.
