Josh, I have a friend in Seattle who once referred to you as that guy who used to barista at his corner coffee shop & you walked into one of his Modern Guitar/Jazz Big Band recording sessions at a shared studio, stood there blankly for a minute, then calmly walked out.

I put on Spirited Away for my 4 year old & he did have a bunch of questions about the pigs, but it was either that or The Matrix, so...

The majority of today's moderately successful bands would simply be yesterday's 'king of the scene', local bands. Without internet exposure and file sharing, most would be lucky to get regional College radio airplay and an opening slot for the national act that came through town. So, increased exposure does not equal a right to Nirvana-type money. 1,000,000 yt views does not equal $1,000,000. And most of the popular bands from the past, didn't make nearly as much money as was propagandized.
