This is no surprise to anyone remotely involved in the industry. Not sure how anyone can debate it. The industry has changed dramtically in the past 20 years. Some artists can adapt to the change by leveraging social media and using their status to generate multiple revenue streams via other business opportunities. The more purist artists, the less business-saavy, and those who refuse to change their approach to their art (from a business perspective) will have much more difficulty making ends meet.
