I think he worked at a steel mill.
He only has 4 fingers and can still be a god at guitar.

Actually he cut the tips off his fingers middle and ringer fingers the last day he worked at a sheet metal factory. He was just set to join the band. So rather then give up guitar, he made little plastic tips for his fingers, used a lighter sting and de-tuned down a third to e flat. That down tuning is considered to have given Black Sabbath a darker more sinister sound. Now everyone is drop tuning down to d and c.

November 20th, 1969: James Brown and his band, including Clyde Stubblefield on drums, recorded "Funky Drummer" at King Records studios in Cincinnati, Ohio. The song helped lay the foundation for hip-hop, rap, and drum 'n bass, and has become one of the most-sampled pieces of music in history.

When The Sex Pistols ,played their polemic song God Save The Queen, aboard a boat navigating on the river Thames...police everywhere!!!

Another controversial song was Anarchy in the U.K.

When Venezuelan singer Ali Primera (he sang protest music against politicians) died in an car collision. The local government in charge by the time around 1980, was blamed on murder...remains a cold case.
