Better Than Radiohead's Pay What You Want Strategy

My boss alerted me to a price menu for drummer Josh Freese's new album. The prices range from $7 to $75,000 and packages include anything from dinner at Sizzler to a trip to Disneyland (both with Freese, of course). The site assures that this is not a joke. Honestly, I hadn't heard of Josh Freese before today, but I think this is pretty awesome. I hope this catches on. I would definitely pay $50 to get a phone call from Paul McCartney or $250 to go on a lunch date with him. Not that Sir Paul would ever do this, but a girl can dream. Which musicians would you like to see adopt this pricing strategy?
