Sonic Reducers | Rock Stars With Side Gigs

Josh Todd of Buckcherry is a phlebotomist? We have something to say about that.

Some rock stars are just rich and lazy. Others, not so much. Take Joshua Todd of sleaze-rockers Buckcherry — the tattoo-festooned frontman recently revealed that he trained to become a phlebotomist (aka the person who draws your blood) during the pandemic.

Of course, he’s not the only musician with a moonlighting gig. From food services to publishing to medicine, there’s a long list of artists who have had jobs before, during and after their glory days. Who better to talk about this than the second hardest-working man in showbiz Eric Alper and I (aka the laziest man who writes about showbiz) on today’s episode of Sonic Reducers. Join us as we chat about Todd’s new sideline, recall some other rock stars with side gigs, and imagine the surreality of being treated by David Lee Roth the EMT. Sonic Reducers. One topic. Two music nerds. Five minutes. Everything you need to know.
