Album sales have collapsed, with few artists making money from albums; touring is more lucrative.

I know it's financially lucrative to go out on my own, but I don't like it. It's really hard work, just the performance aspect. I like people who look like they've been together for too long and sound like they've been together too long. I like rock n' roll bands.
It is a pretty odd profession - tickling people - but it can be lucrative.
