Bryan Adams feels sorry for young musicians trying to build a career in the record industry, because he's convinced they are all struggling to make a living.
The rocker admits he made good money at the height of his fame, but he's adamant the music business has changed since then and current chart stars aren't earning decent wages.
He tells the Hollywood Reporter, "I feel quite sad for the young musicians coming up because they may never get to pay their rent properly. It doesn't matter what the genre; nowadays, it's so much harder than it ever was.
"You want to get paid for your work and be able to take something home to your family or yourself. I tip my hat to anybody today that can make music and move forward."
