Once again have you listened to Joe Walsh's new album? He may have a fair point but he has no right to say that when his album is almost as sterile as a Nickleback album, it's just being hypocritical.

He, like me,comes from a time, where we played bars,clubs school dances and every other venue we could to make a buck and pay our dues.We also got paid.No one worked for free.We wouldn't even entertain the idea of working for free.You got paid....period.
Well that doesn't make sense, as there's more Indie bands making a living on music, and nothing but music, now than ever, he's just complaining about the fact that you can't make AS MUCH money now than you could back in the day, Joe isn't complaining about having to play for free, he probably hasn't played a single show in the past 20 years that cost less than 60$ a ticket.

there's no possible way you can complain about music not being a valid money making means when bands and artists like Metric, Neon Indian, Com Truise, Intronaut, Local Natives, Cage The Elephant, ect ect ect have been formed in recent years and continue to make a living off of music despite piracy and the "everything for free" attitude of people today.

Couldn't disagree more, with music being free it allows the average person to enjoy a much broader range of music; which will make it more likely for that person to find music they enjoy and become passionate about, and people will always pay artists that they are passionate about.

Two different views from two different era's I guess..
