Charging for photographs and autographs etc.

Chiming in here, I'll add that I probably wouldn't pay steep prices to get someone's autograph or my photo taken with them. If an artist or a band chooses to do so, however, he/she/they have every right to do so - and I can imagine many reasons for that, not necessary all of them motivated by personal greed, either.

While charging for these things probably won't win anyone a "personable rock star of the year" award, I figure meeting someone famous remains a fleeting moment, no matter which way you slice it. Even if I did cough up some serious cash for a VIP experience of sorts, it would all still only boil down to a slightly longer fleeting experience. The magic happens during the everyday listening to the music the artists and bands make and whatever impact that has as the soundtrack to my life - for all other purposes they'll be living in their world and I in mine...

The beauty of the music business is of course that no one forces you to buy anything whatsoever, nor are you indebted to Rick Springfield in any way, despite being a long time fan. If you can't be bothered to purchase any of his future releases, be it music or books, then you are perfectly entitled to do just that...
