Elmer Valentine
The first thing that attracted me to the Mothers music was the fact that they played for twenty minutes and everybody was hissing, and booing, and falling off the dance floor and Elmer was yelling at them to get off the stage and turn down their amplifiers

Elmer Valentine, a former Chicago policeman, opened the Whisky a Go-Go in 1963, and The Trip in 1965. Gail Sloatman worked for him as a secretary at the Whisky a Go-Go.
