Elvis Presley The Trucker

By Posted on 2 Comments 1 min read

Can you imagine what employment celebrities would have if they had never been successful in their chosen professions?  I’ve been delving through the archives to see what these celebs had done in the past. Some interesting facts come up, although I did take the liberty of making Pete Townshend a milkman.

The list is as follows:

Art Garfunkle – Maths Teacher

David Bowie – Butchers Delivery Boy

Elvis Presley – Truck Driver

Mick Jagger – Hospital Porter

Pete Townshend – Milkman

Frank Sinatra – Riviter

Tom Jones – Machinist

Tom Waits – Pizza Maker

Elvis Presley the trucker, Tom Waits making pizza. I bet it would have been great working with these guys and I bet they were always full of song. Yet I wonder how many more are still in these kind of jobs who had the talent, but for whatever reason never made it to the dizzy heights of fame and fortune?

I'd love to hear from you
