    Very little, especially the old days such as the 50s, 60s and 70s. Albums sold for $5 or less and few musicians held concerts in football stadiums. Struggling musicians and actors often have to make ends meet taking jobs as waiters and waitresses. Eddie Money's song Baby Hold on to me is a song about his girl leaving him because he did not make much money, even though he assured her that he will be successful. He was so hurt emotionally by his experience that he used Money as his stage name.
