Shaun White Talks New Band, New Haircut

The New Now

Shaun White is best known as an Olympic snowboarding gold medalist, but apparently he's a real Renaissance man: He also plays guitar in a rock band called Bad Things, and they're not bad at all!

Shaun and his Bad Things bandmate Jared Palomar (formerly of Augustana) were in Las Vegas on September 20 to check out the iHeartRadio Music Festival, where they caught up with Yahoo Music backstage. Find out why Shaun's new haircut — which renders him nearly unrecognizable — has been good for his rock 'n' roll career, and how he's planning to balance that career with his sporty "day job."
