I am pretty successful actually, and I won Emmys for my work the last two years, as well as being party to a couple of Academy Awards too. I have been in the industry for around 20 years, and it has been my sole source of income for the last 18. So again- I think I might be qualified to speak on the issue since it directly affects me.

And I actually stand behind my words with my real identity too.
I get that, and congrats, but just because slash is an amazing and successful guitar player doesn't mean he's educated on the history of events that have lead us here and the issues being debated... the same might be true of you.
