what jobs do Christian Rock and metal musicians work?

Post by Guest on Sun Oct 19, 2014 12:53 pm

does anyone know what day jobs Christian rockers work since surely the vast majority can't make a full time living from it? I remember Lincoln Bowen from Mortification, at least when he left the band before coming back, had left to be a school teacher. One of the guys in Project 86 is a youth pastor. We can even expand this to secular artists too, I think it's interesting. Sometime back I read that Fenriz from Darkthrone works for the postal service.

His dad's a doctor so it makes sense.

BTW, half the guys listed here don't even claim to be Christians.

Since we are talking, anyone know what Matt Smith (Theocracy) does for a living? I think I've heard that he does music production work (outside of Theocracy), but I didn't know if that was a hobby for him or something he does for a living.

That's really interesting about Jason Martin, is he a long distance driver? If so then I wonder how he gets time for writing and recording. I used to kinda know a guy that did that and he was gone working all the time

Yeah, I knew he was in charge, and thought he still drove.

Believer isn't really a Christian band, they admit to being Christians but deflect almost any question about it, but (lead vocalist/guitarist) Kurt Bachman is a cancer doctor and (drummer) Joey Daub is a mechanical engineer. I forget what (keyboardist/programmer) Jeff King does but I believe he's a pretty smart guy too.

Bill Menchen of several bands is (was, maybe, haven't heard much from him in a while) a forklift mechanic.
Our own Alldat of Mission Of One is a pastor and a teacher's assistant, I believe.
Gary Mann of Barnabas is (was, maybe, again, I don't know for sure) a computer whiz.
