toggle "do not disturb" while listening to music in lollipop

In 4.X I'd just hold the power button and could switch to silent or vibrate. Now that menu has been removed (absurd IMO), how can I quickly and easily change the interruptions level?

Thanks.

Welcome to Android Central! Tap the Vol Down button, then tap "None" right under the volume slider onscreen.

If music is playing, the "none" option doesn't appear (which is why I'm asking), though thanks for the suggestion.
All that appears is the volume slider for the music.

Yeah, I see what you mean.

I would expect that it is just a matter of time before some of the widgets developers come up with something that will allow for easy toggling between None/Priority/All mode.

Thanks, that's a step in the right direction, though a widget means I need to go to the main screen (whatever you call it) even if there was a way of doing it from the notification area, similar to airplane mode, that would be great.
I never need auto rotate or screen cast; if only I could replace those with a toggle between priority, none, and all. This feels similar to the "upgrade" from Gnome 2 to Gnome 3; prettier, but with significant loss of functionality.

I haven't seen any sign off this in real life yet, but I suppose there might be hope for you: http://www.androidbeat.com/2014/11/...k-settings-android-5-0-lollipop/#.VHx7AEnnZnF
