Don't Quit Your Night Job...

This is something that occurred to me recently:

While there are a few acts of this genre who are still pulling in the big bucks with touring and whatnot (Bon Jovi, etc.), and there are several acts who probably aren't getting rich off touring any longer, if they ever did, but still are full time in the music business in one capacity or more (Night Ranger, for example), there must also be acts that are a bit lower down the scale as far as the amount of tickets and albums they can sell, and while the bands are still together in whatever capacity, their members these days have other jobs/careers to make an actual regular living.

Just out of curiousity, does anyone know of artists of our genre here who still do the music thing, but also nowadays maintain jobs not related to music so as to pay the rent? I know some band members do writing or producing for others, or teach guitar or whatever, but I'm interested in what melodic rockers do these days that is not music related to pay the bills, but they still do stuff with their bands as well. I seem to recall years back on this board someone mentioned the singer of some band or another was still performing with whatever band it was here and there, but was also working as an auto mechanic during the day.

Any knowledge to share?
