I really don't understand why he would choose to stay poor while he could probably make some pretty good money just by giving some interviews and going to fan conventions.

i suspect not all is well in Jimmys head, and that he may lack the confidence/social skills to present himself to such public scrutiny.  
If some fund were set up, where Beatle fans could all contribute, and I was sure he'd get the money, I'd happily put in a few bucks. I think it would be nice for the Beatleworld to rally round what would seem a very worthwhile cause. Maybe we could get Macca to match our contributions (though I doubt it. But it would be a nice PR move for him.)

I dunno... I think it would probably be a bit humiliating for the guy.

This is the key. Why in the hell are we bill paying, family people giving money to somebody who has had contacts with people that has tons of cash? Maybe theres a reason that people like Paul or whoever dont lend a hand. Maybe Jim was an a**hole. Seriously, we dont know.

I've been interestied in Jimmy's story (things I didn't know) after reading this (thanks to tkitna):

"[...]
Nicol wore Ringo's suit on stage, and apparently had to use clothes pegs to make the jacket fit. His first show with The Beatles took place on 4 June in Copenhagen, Denmark. He played a further nine shows, until Starr returned to the group in Melbourne, Australia, on 14 June. Nicol said he was "praying he [Starr] would get well at the same time I was hoping he would not want to come back." He was not able to say goodbye to The Beatles as they were still asleep when he left, and did not want to disturb them. At the airport, Brian Epstein presented him with a cheque for £500 and a gold Eternamatic wrist watch inscribed: "From The Beatles and Brian Epstein to Jimmy - with appreciation and gratitude."

After his time with The Beatles, Nicol and his band, The Shubdubs, released the single "Husky"/"Don't Come Back", followed by "Humpty Dumpty"/"Night Train", neither of which was a commercial success. Nicol was reunited with The Beatles when his band was set down on a bill with The Beatles and The Fourmost. They performed on 12 July 1964 at the Hippodrome Theatre in Brighton.

[...]

Later career/life
After his brief time with The Beatles, Nicol declared bankruptcy in 1965. That year, he joined numerous bands including Swedish group The Spotnicks, which he left in 1967. In 1975 he returned to England after setting up a button factory in Mexico. Other work in this time included housing renovations and carpentry.
Later in his life, it was rumoured that Nicol had died in 1988, however a report in 2005 by the Daily Mail confirmed that he was still alive and living as a recluse in London."

Ringo was discharged from the hospital on June 11, and he rejoined the group in Melbourne on June 15, 1964.

Jimmy didn't just play in Holland. The tour started in Denmark, then on to Holland. On the 10th of June two concerts in Hong Kong. After that: Australia and New Zealand. Ringo rejoined on June 14th. Jimmy played on all the concerts prior to that. Remember that Hong Kong is not Japan. The Beatles played in Japan in 1966, not 1965. Jimmy didn't stay in the Netherlands for three weeks, but took the plane together with the other Beatles to the far east. Can't fool me.

I have listened to the interview from Hillegom, but they don't mention the places where they're going to play at all. Fact is they didn't visit Sweden on that tour.

Interesting topic and good to see Jimmie is still here. But who is this guy called djinn? Looks like he just watched the Anthology series.
