It is certain that there are millions of music enthusiasts around the world. It never gets old, as many people love all kinds of genres of music whether new or old. Apart from music, one is bound to have a favorite musician or two in their lifetime. In most towns, you will see live performances from the iconic artists giving a treat to their loyal fans. The night life in such a setting blazes the glittering streets and theatres where everyone shows up to give a standing ovation to their celebrated idol. It represents the same thrill as playing video slots online for a change. Those musicians also have a life away from singing their hearts out. The following are some of the strange hobbies music artists engage in when they are not making hits.
Rodger Daltrey, Farming Trout
As an icon and legend in the music industry, Daltrey is also a Trout farmer. He has a large pond in his backyard where he farms trout. As a lover of music, he also considers his trout as part of the family.
Alex James, Making Cheese
Apart from singing, Alex James wears many hats. He is also a journalist and a songwriter.
When you think of cheese, you better mention Alex James in that sentence as he is also a cheese maker. His love for cheese is personal as he does it in his huge mansion. With such a hobby from a successful musician, wonders will really never cease.
Ronnie Wood, Collecting Stamps
The Rolling Stones member is no stranger to the limelight. He has had a successful career as a rock artist and also loves to collect stamps when not on stage. His love for collecting stamps can almost be matched with that of being a rock star. One of his favourite stamp collections is that of the Benjamin Franklin Z Grill, which he values the most.
Kelly Deal, Knitting
If you are a 90s person, then you definitely know Kelly Deal. She has kept a solo career as a music artist before joining the Breeders as a guitarist. When she is on stage, she would rock her unique homemade sweater, with the label, ‘I am not Kim’. Kim is her twin sister and thus the writings on it as many people confuse the two of them. What you may not know is that the sweaters she wears, she makes them.
Nick Zinner, Photography
You would not expect to find a rock band guitarist who is also good with a camera. Nick Zinner does it all. The Yeah Yeah Yeahs lead guitarist loves to tell his story in photos. He does this when he is not busy doing his thing in the band. Together with the band, they have released multiple hit songs, which include the Golden Lion, Maps and Heads Will Roll among others.
The hobbies of a majority of your favourite musicians might be something that you would not have thought of. Well, aren’t they also humans?
