Thread Name: Fees (concert admission prices)
Subject: RE: Fees
I am reminded of the moment in a Rumpole story where he tries to discuss a possible sentence one of his clients might incur with the judge trying the case, who happens to be an old acquaintance. "You will defend your client," the judge says with some dignity, "and if he is convicted, I will sentence him. You have your job and I have mine."

A guest singer's job is to sing. A club organiser's job is to organise all aspects of the occasion at which this singing takes place, including what entrance fee should be charged. I regard it as a gross impertinence for the guest singer to interfere to any extent whatever in such a decision. It is not his job.
