This is my major concern. It is extremely difficult these days to
make a career in music - particularly popular music (of any genre) -
as Steven will attest, not having had a paid gig for two years!
Without the ability to earn a proper living, where are the artists of
the future going to learn and hone their craft? Not sitting in front
of a computer, that's for sure.
