Singer Michael Bolton feels sorry for today's new acts - because many can't afford to live.
The When A Man Loves A Woman hitmaker was a superstar during the 1980s and 1990s - but he doubts he'd be as successful if he had to tackle the business now, insisting stingy record labels and consumers have made it harder to launch a career.
He tells the New York Post, "Labels used to chip in and give you tour support, and those are two words you'll never hear again. That was a part of artist development that no longer exists.
"Also, when people can just go download the one song they love and leave the rest of the record alone, you've looking at a very different environment. I don't know how a young artist survives that."
