Well, letís put it this way, if you have the top ten artists (who are successful musicians) and you compare them to people who donít play music, the former would be better at playing music... doesnít mean that all musicians are successful though.
And further to this, if you compared luck and thuggery of the top ten musicians to the random people in the pub and the musicians would be off the charts.
