Brandon Phillips takes part in ESPN's upcoming music tribute issue

Reds Gold Glove second basemen Brandon Phillips was among a group of MLB players who recreated DEVO's "Freedom of Choice" album cover for ESPN The Magazine's upcoming "Music Issue", which is slated to hit shelves across the nation on Feb. 18.

Phillips joined Miami Marlins outfielder Giancarlo Stanton, Tampa Bay Rays third basemen Evan Longoria, Boston Red Sox outfielder Shane Victorino, and Atlanta Braves outfielder Justin Upton to pull off the 1980's look. As you can see, the five players decked out in shimmering spandex suits and LEGO hats to bear a striking similarity to the original group.

Also included in the magazine music tribute are Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte (Nirvana), USA soccer star Alex Morgan (Katy Perry), and Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Josh Freeman (Michael Jackson), among others.
