Film Club - X-Posure Radio X Session Track Childcare
Sometimes the wild and wacky world of music just isn't enough. Sometimes rock stars have extra curricular activities - anything from farming to flying. Let's look at what they get up to when they're offstage.
In 2011, the Manchester band launched their own ale, produced in conjunction with local brewers Robinson's. It was titled Build A Rocket Boys! after the album of the same name. Earlier this year they hooked up with another brewery, Marston's, to whip up a bottle of Charge, named after the track from the album The Take Off And Landing of Everything.
At the band's summer shows, they will be selling some special "Magic Whip" ice cream, named after their new album. It will be vanilla custard flavour, with a raspberry ripple. Nice!
The former Oasis and Beady Eye man has his own clothing label, Pretty Green, that designs mod-friendly outfits for lads and lasses. He has shops and everything. With big pictures of his face on the wall.
That's right, the Iron Maiden frontman is a certified airline pilot. He's even allowed to fly commercial planes!
The former LCD Soundsystem man created his own brand of expresso, called "House Of Good". As the lyrics of Someone Great say: "The coffee isn't even bitter."
The Smashing Pumpkins man has his own wrestling federation. That's right. Wrestling. It's called Resistance pro. He's not actually wrestling himself mind.
The Killers man is mainly known for his catchy choruses and flamboyant dress sense. But in 2011, he appeared with his family in a soft-focus filmed video in support of his religion of choice.
The Charlatans frontman teamed up with Kelloggs to create the insanely-titled Totes Amazeballs cereal of "choco rocks and shortbread". It was sold as a limited edition at Kendal Calling festival in 2012, with money going to charity.
The My Chemical Romance frontman co-created an animated TV show called The Breakfast Monkey for cartoon network but it didn't get picked up.
The Blur bassist has a farm where he creates his own brands of fermented curd, with titles like Blue Monday, Little Wallop and Goddess.
In 2012, Kaiser Chiefs frontman appeared in a new stage production of the musical version War Of The Worlds. The singer played The Artilleryman - a role previously played by the King Of The Musical, David Essex.
Aside from his reality TV stint the Happy Monday's frontman is set to present a show on UFOs for the History Channel having apparently seen a few himself over the years.
In 2012, the guitari legend was recruited by Salford University to give a talk on "The Outsider In Music". Homework: learn the riff to This Charming Man.
In 2010, Tom announced that he'd bought a farm with his earnings from The Enemy's debut album. However, he sold his country house a mere two years later, when he decided he "couldn't hack" living in the countryside.
In 1967, The Beatles launched their own company, Apple (no relation to the iPod manufacturers). One of the offshots was a clothes shop on the corner of Baker Street in London. The shop barely lasted nine months before the band gave away all its stock and closed the thing down. They stuck to music after that.
The Feeder bassist launched his very own food and cookery website a few years back - Cookmejapanese.com - which offered recipes for "everyday simple Japanese food you can make cheaply and easily". He also created a playlist of music to cook along to, but sadly it looks like the site is no longer active.
