Subject: RE: info about Paul Clayton??
Thanks, Art, for your input. It'll keep me coming back. A story on Jim..He was performing solo at Wolftrap and I went to hear him, taking my wife along. She was mesmerized by him onstage, but during the three days he stayed with us at our home in Richmond Va he regarded her as a shortorder cook whenever he awoke on his erratic schedule. As we were getting ready to head to the airport after 3 days of pickin' and singing he turned to me and said "Look,You've got a good woman that'll look after you, but when this life begins to wear thin I'll be waiting for you to come join me in California. My wife overheard, recognized that there was no room for her in Jim,s proposal,and I'm afraid that at that point Jim's welcome evaporated. That all happened, I now figure, in about August of 1970. Thanks for straightening me out on the source of I LEARNED ABOUT WOMEN FROM HER.
