Spinner recently ran a feature on the 20 worst pre-rock star jobs. Many of them are neither "rock" nor deserving of "star" status, but some entries of interest here are:

5. Tony Iommi: Sheet Metal Factory Worker
3. David Lee Roth: Hospital Orderly
2. Jonathan Davis: Funeral Home Embalmer

For more details on these and to check out the full list, read the full article.

Dude, last summer I sat at a computer at UPS Freight and just scanned paper for about 7 hours monday-friday. Scan...press enter...scan...press enter. I should be doing it this summer too, I might have more things to do though and this time my boss said I may be working for 10-11 hours a day monday-friday. So I'll probably be making about 550-600/week, not bad for a summer job! lol

I also was a bus boy while I was in high school at Outback Steakhouse. That was a sh**ty a$$ job!

Most of those jobs are just mudane...

Work 12 hour night shifts as a technician/secretary in a downtown emergency room where a dudes face is sliding off his skull. He's alive, fully conscious and completely insane from the sight of himself, his own blood and the crystal meth.
Deal with that and elderly people vomiting up their own -sh**- because their intestines are backed up. Or watch a young, attractive, 22 year old college girl die because she had severe asthma and the pollen count was too high.

I've worked in fast food, factories, warehouses, telemarketing, cube farms It all sucks, but I tip my hat to the medical peeps.....If someone can do that line of work for 6 monthes, instant respect.

The worst job I've ever had was the blowjob that Jonathan Davis gave me backstage on their last tour. Horrible!
