An industry operating on a model created in the early half of the 20th Century that has barely adapted to modern technology and consumer demands is struggling in a lackluster economy? How interesting...
Good. That 41% sucked anyway.
On the other hand though, how does this balance out though that in the Indie/Warped/Punk scene alone (however you want to categorize it) there's been an explosion of the number of full-time touring bands/kids identifying themselves as musicians since 1999? Weird.
