I hear very often about metal musicians who, in their spare time, have to take on other jobs in order to keep themselves financially afloat. I was wondering if anyone knew of good examples of these...?

I heard that the guys from Vital Remains work in a factory when they're not on tour, and that Lord Worm is/was an English teacher. Anyone else have come good examples?
