Being an artist or an athlete is a gamble. You either make it and get paid a ridiculously exaggerated sum of money for little work, or you work hard and get paid ****.

So you're saying if I do little work I'll get rich, and If I work hard I'll fail?

Actually, because of all this "waa musicians dun get the muny they deserve" **** they are now getting paid ridiculously well. I know bands that get paid £300 for doing 8 **** cover songs through a 6 track mixer with 50w speakers. Absolute joke.

Cover bands generally get hired more and paid more on local levels because at parties and whatnot people wanna hear songs they already know. But not ever cover group are lazy assholes. I'm the "eddie" in a van halen tribute group and I've spent about a thousand dollars on building 4 replica guitars, tons of practice and rehearsal hours learning the songs. Pic related it's 2 of the guitars I've made.

Don't make assumptions on personal experiences.

It's a lot more like work ridiculously hard and have talent//get lucky and get paid a lot, or work ridiculously hard and don't have that much talent//don't get lucky

If that's true, most of today's "artists" are the luckiest people on the entire ******* planet.

Well the talent I was looking more at athletes, you can't be an athlete and not be talented//work extremely hard.. Artists have more luck, I mean everyone is quite good but it does take luck to get big unless you're obscenely talented... But the pop artists have more of the "star quality" in terms of talent, more then just skill that makes them popular.

eh, I wouldn't exactly say professional athletes do little work.
