Re: One of my favorite chapters in the book...
Jim didn't always take requests. The week he spent at the Flame Cafe in Minneapolis in February 1964, Elmer and I were there every night. One night a heckler was yelling "I wanna hold your hand". Jim said "I only sing my songs, that is a Beatles song". After 3 or 4 yells from this heckler Jim responded with "Hold your own hand". He got a big hand from all of us. That shut the heckler up!
He was a great entertainer, nobody better ever. Doris
