From boyband member to turkey farmer: 10 of the best pop star career changes

Haven't looked through all the comments to see if there's a Les mention. VB might like this one.
I also recall the lead singer of The Smiths had a career change and became an arsehole.

there must be loads more I guess - not that many pop stars do that forever. Wonder what bono would become? Hmm, did I just turn your thread into another anti U2 thread? Sorry. back on topic - who is the former roxy member who is now a vicar>? One of my matews did that, after being a teacher, as opposed to pop star, he retured and trained as a vicar.

Tax lawyer - poacher turned game keeper type of move. Edge would be a butcher, Larry would be a physics teacher and Adam would be, I was going to say homeless but that would be mean, pub landlord. I'm reminded of Eric morecambe when asked what would he and ernie would be if they weren't comedians and he said 'Mike and Bernie Winters'.

Bono became Mother Teresa years ago. :wink:

Wasn't the Edge going to be a vicar or am I getting confused with Richard Coles
