That's true for a professional graphic designer, not for a professional musician. The difference between the two was a decision.
I have met at least one musician who wanted to be a graphic designer.
It seems a bit silly to want to do something and then identify yourself as someone who won't do it.
My younger brother wanted to be a musician. So he did that. He performs at various clubs in Tokyo. He even performed on TV there a couple times. He doesn't make a living from it at this point -- his day job is a network engineer -- but that doesn't stop him from going out and performing.
