Niv you missed the point about downloading. It reference is to older bands having success even when no longer popular as it was for 60's and 70's bands after they fell from favor. Imagine a minute no Internet. And pick any remotely popular 80's band doing a reunion/heritage show. If you enjoyed the show and out at the merch stand was a new record a fair amount would buy it. Sure it wouldnt chart or even be played but at the end of a US tour they would 50-60,000 copies. Back in the day the older bands still made money. That was the reference to illegal downloading though I still stand by my opinion if some new music on a classic rock station was played people would like it.
