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!
