Re: One of my favorite chapters in the book...
Larry and Doris, thank you for both your replies. I've always regret the fact that I was born a little too late to ever get to see Jim in person. I was only about 12 years old when Jim died. My mother and older brother were present at the Carnegie Hall concert, and I've always been envious of them! I remember my Mom being dissapointed though that Jim didn't sing as many songs as Patsy, Marty and the others in the show. You confirmed this in your book, Larry, although I never knew why until you mentioned that the audience applauded so much between each number that the show ran overtime, leaving a less time for Jim to do anymore than three songs. A real shame. Doris, I got a big kick out of the story about Jim and the Beatles song. That was really funny!
