I don't understand why his question is silly. I thought it was rather
sane and straightforward.
AFA a musician who's in it for the money or the art: well.. that's
rather hard to pin down. Who knows which artist is "in it for the
money"? You certainly can't tell from their music.
Furthermore, artists must eat, and they always find a way to. There are
the very few that lock themselves away in a run down shack to create
their art. That's OK with me, but that ain't the norm today. On the flip
side, there are plenty of musicians who are in it for the art, but their
art is not particularly good. And there are musicians that are rich and
their art is wonderful. Art and money are mutually independent.
