From The Washington Post
Touring is a hard grind. But it is the only real way for musicians to get paid these days.
The story from the Washington Post lays out the problems faced by older musicians.
And it really highlights the issues of healthcare in the US. Imagine what it might be like if they didn't spend fortunes on wars, instead spending it on looking after people.
What it also points out is the fact that poor deals and shoddy accounting by record companies has really affected many musicians.
