I think in a field like this, the WWW can be an advantage and disadvantage at the same time, depending on how you look at it. It can be advantageous to get your name out there with minimal effort (of course, don’t rely on it) but it can get you a lot of business. It can be disadvantageous because it can over-saturate the market with people doing the same thing you’re doing and making it easier for them to take your potential business all-the-while make it extremely easy for anyone to steal music. I just read a great article from a couple years ago, posing the question: “Has the internet ruined the music business for musicians?” (http://goo.gl/b1bZHO) I don’t think it’s ruined it, but it definitely has changed the game. I think in the modern era bands will probably need to rely more on merch and ticket sales and less on music sales. Music sales aren’t so viable anymore.
