All good man, it's just something I'm passionate about lately, as I've been part of some recent discussions about inclusivity in electronic music, so an argument like this kinda hits close to home.
Regarding the twitter link you sent, yeah it's an issue if people are starting to lose income, but much like any other industry, you just need to learn to adapt. I've never really made anything other than pocket money from playing gigs (or really anything else music related) but it seems the smart people out there are moving into other areas that are music related, but not necessarily directly playing gigs or making records. Stuff like soundtracks, sound design, education, product design, etc. I think that's a good next step for a lot of established musicians.
