There are many artists in this world, writers, poets, painters, photographers, composers, musicians etc. Some of them have become very famous, others not. It had also happened, that an artist wasn't famous during the life, but after the death suddenly this artist had become very famous.
The way to an orchestra or to an opera is a very long way, and a musician or a singer can be very glad, if this wish will become true some day. They have to begin very early and they have to take many music-lessons for many years. But later only less musicians will be allowed to play also solo-parts in an orchestra, and only less singers will be allowed to sing also solo-parts in a choir. Many other musicians will never play in a professional orchestra and many singers will never sing in a professional choir. Maybe they can play and sing on the street, in groups or solo. Sometimes they sell also CDs, but mostly they don't.
Some bands and some solo-musicians have become very famous, and mostly the CDs are still sold also, after a group has been disbanded and the musicians began to continue solo. It has happened very often, that suddenly one of the musicians or the singer in a group has died or a musician, who had worked solo and in cooperations, but the CDs are still available.
Many other artists will never reach the "Top Ten" in the charts. They are still artists. They have luck, if they get a contract with a label, but mostly they don't, or the label wants to dictate, that the music has to be made very differently, but such a dictation takes away the creativity of an artist. It is very good, that many artists do, what they want. They are artists, also, if they are not very famous.
Everybody will die some day, some of us have to leave us very early, some others can become very old. Mostly the death comes suddenly and unexpectedly. But what will happen to all the works, if an artist has died? I think, the most artists want, that their works are still available, as CDs or music-files. If they want, that their works are still available in the internet in their own profiles also after their death, then I think, they should stay there forever, also, if this user can never go online anymore after the death. Also artists, who never got a contract with a label, are artists, and also these artists should get the chance, that their works are for the eternity.
The older You become, the more You will think, what will happen to You some day, and what will happen to all Your works. I myself want, that all my works can stay in the internet also after my death, and that all my hosted files should be free downloadable forever. Then I am not really dead, maybe my body does not exist anymore, but all my works are still available, and on this way it is like an eternal life...
Update March 2017:
Of course artists can do nothing, if suddenly a website is shut down and all the uploads go away. Also they can do nothing, if nasty third people attack the accounts and destroy all their works.
Because not all family members and related people are gentle, sometimes it is necessary to disinherit a person who would have been entitled to the inheritance, and it has to be done before the death.
Disinherited people should have no possibility to get the documents of the birth and of the death, then they will have no judicial rights to cause the deletion of the accounts, after the artist has died.
If a whole band dies because of an accident, and if all musicians wanted to have all their works still available, then already one of the widowed partners suddenly can decide differently, that the music should not be available anymore.
Also a big dispute in a band or musician-duo can be already bad. Mostly they don't seperate from each other peacefully, and then the next CDs are pulled from the market.
Whatever will happen, the ideas of the artists never will die, and if one artist cannot continue, maybe another one will do that instead...
