Shitty thing is when they are under contract some times they are fucked and have to charge. I once meet willie mays as a kid and he said he could not sign it that I had to pay 10$. I was 9 and heart broken, later at the event he had one of the guys that worked for me give me his autograph and explained to me about it and how he did not agree with it, but under law he had to.
"Stop what you're doing, cuz I'm about to ruin, the image and the sound you're used to. Look here, I love that Humpty song. Stop cramping my style, man." SI
