Keep our handy list of the worst pre-fame jobs handy anytime you’re thinking of throwing a big fit and walking out of your current place of employment; it’s heartening to know that even big rock stars like David Lee Roth and Mick Jagger had less-than-thrilling tasks to perform at one point in their lives.

You’ll learn how your favorite musicians made ends meet financially by working as gravediggers, hospital orderlies and even by performing random tasks in a mental hospital. We’ll even explore how one on-the-job accident nearly ended the career of one our heavy metal’s most legendary musicians.

This story is a partnership with five of our brother and sister websites. You can learn about more celebrities and their pre-fame jobs at Loudwire, Taste of Country, Popcrush and Screencrush.
