Fascinating analysis! I’m not connected in any way to the music business, but it’s interesting to track the changes. Although you mention that there will be “more dominant star artists”, the big advantage with spotify and it’s competitors is the ability to listen to music that you would never have bought or listened to before. The range of music I listen to is wider now than ever — which is a major bonus for me.
