Jonathan Davis – Worst Pre-Fame Jobs
You may be surprised to read that music wasn’t the first love of Korn singer Jonathan Davis. In fact, the vocalist studied at the San Francisco School of Mortuary Science during his college years. Davis became a professional embalmer for a funeral home as well as an assistant in the Kern County Coroner’s Department.
Davis spoke about his grim career path with the now-defunct web magazine Addicted to Noise. “My dad and mom both thought I was a problem child or some[one] that wanted to cut up dead bodies,” says Davis. “I’ve seen [the dark side of life]. Other people don’t see it first hand — they read about it or see pictures, but when you see it staring you right in the face, it’s an eye-opener.”
