I've wondered the same thing about people like Janis and Jimi.  But then 
look at some of the 'greats' who did survive and see what they are doing 
now.  I look at Fripp or Eno and see where the technology took them, and 
then see Clapton, who is GREAT - no doubt, but is still playing the same 

It is still a great great time to be a musician!
