You're right that musicians don't get rich. But to become a really good
musician you may have to put a lot of time into it - something that is
almost impossible with a daytime job on the side. Quite often good pro
musicians get hired on better deals than amateurs.

I may be wrong about the US though, since I live in Sweden and have only
toured Germany, South East Asia and Sweden.

Just another perspective ;D
