There's more money in the music business today, than at any time in history - and YOU, yes you are spending more on music today than you ever spent back in the 70s and 80s.
The money is in your license fee, in every product you buy that was advertised on TV or radio, it is in every concert ticket you buy, it is in every movie ticket you buy, it is in every piece of building materials or stick of wood, every nut and bolt, every car and even the petrol or Diesel in the tank and it is definitely in your next visit to a hairdresser.
I doubt I spend £3,276 in total on those things per annum so according to your theory over 100% of my related spending goes to the musician with a link to those products.
