Re: Joe Walsh - The truth about music
I think the disgust stems from the fact that the money is not there like it used to be. The digital age has laid waste to many businesses. Travel agents for instance.
Imagine going to college, paying your dues, then working hard in a field and sacrificing, for many decades, and making great money, then seeing that all slip away. It's upsetting. Now he has to learn a whole new way to profit from music. After being in any business for that long, usually things get easier money-wise, not tougher. It's harder now for Joe to make money and I can't blame him for lamenting about it.
I'm glad I don't depend on music to fund my lifestyle.
Great art is born out of great pain.
