Surprising Former Jobs Of Rock Stars

The other night at dinner the kids started talking about getting jobs this summer to have some extra spending money. During the course of the conversation we we also discussed what sort of jobs would also look good on future resumes, wanting them to keep in mind that the jobs they get now will (hopefully) not be in the same fields they will eventually pursue as adults.

After listening to them toss out a list possible places they could apply the conversation turned to jobs they could get that might actually be in fields similar to those they want to go into as adults.

Again, the conversation shifted and we began to talk about how even adults some times find themselves in a career for a few years and decide to do something else.

Naturally, my first example was of a former elementary teacher turned rock star, can you guess who I’m talking about? If you guessed Gene Simmons of Kiss you’re right on the money.

What about the musician who used to upholster furniture? Any guesses? None other than Jack White of the White Stripes.

One more, any idea which vocalist and only constant member of Bad Religion has a secret life as a paleontologist? That would be Gregory Walter Graffin, Ph.D.

And the list goes on and on kiddies, just goes to show you even doctors have a secret desire to be a rock star.
