• 9 Pounds for a Three-Hour Session

    From Norbert K@21:1/5 to All on Sun Sep 12 10:35:32 2021
    The obituary for Sheila Bromberg mentions that she was paid 9 pounds for her three hours of work on "She's Leaving Home."

    She accepted the gig -- but the article notes she had two kids to take care of.

    Was the pay reasonable for such a gig at the time? Did the Beatles pay their session players well? (McCartney is alleged to have been exceedingly stingy in paying his later Wings cohorts.)
