How will musicians make a living?

On December 13th covering ,

These are interesting times. The musicians I talk to are all scratching for new ways to make a living. These anxieties filter into their daily lives and I hear about it constantly. So even though I am not remotely a player in the industry, I’ve become interested in the topic. As I wrote a few days ago, 1000 years of history shows this is not a new problem.

I personally believe that creative solutions are out there. One colorful and energetic, if intemperate, commentator is Bob Lefsetz, who delivers unbridled observations in his email letter. His take on the Aspen Live conference of industry muckymucks is posted on Seth Godin’s blog. I’d be interested in hearing what you think.
