With Jim Morrisson long gone and Ray Manzarek more recently departed, the , to be blunt, less interesting half of the Doors are around to contine the legacy and I say this with the full knowledged that Robby wrote “ight My Fire”. I didn’t say less talented, I said less interesting.
So as we work out way through the end of times with the Doors there is something left to release and it sounds really good, a documentary from 1968, never completed though often bootlegged has been completed and will be seeing the light of day opn November 11th, according to Billboard from whom I pilferred this story.
“The film primarily captures the Doors on the road during the summer of 1968, both on stage and especially off stage and behind the scenes. “You can see how friendly it was, and there was, and no ego. It was four equal guys,” according to drummer John Densmore. “We tied it together as much as we could and are putting it out as pure as possible, but with really good visual and sound quality.”
What else do Billboard have to tell us here?
Apparently they have been unable to pull together a tribute concert for Ray, so you gotta thing, how the hell can’t they pull it together? Ray was moved loved for longer in L.A. then even Jim was? You’d think they’d be lining up for it.
