Has it ever been like this before?

You've been around a long time, and I'm sure have seen some tremendous changes in the industry. My question is, has there ever been a time like the current? By the I mean the ridicilous budget restrictions, etc. I've talked to a lot of people who fear the industry might crash itself. There is so much pirating going on, cd sales are down a bit, downloads are way up, studios are closing left and right etc. Was there ever a time like this before, say during the transition from Vinyl to cassette, or from cassette to cd, where it seemed the industry was crashing in on itself?
