I saw the Doors live at the Spectrum in Philly 1970.
where has the time gone.
Favorite band of all time.
And I was born in 72. So. I like old people music I guess.
Was it good or a disaster?
my kid says there's still that segment of teens who love the band and whatnot
dying young does you some good
crystal ship--one of the best and nicest songs I believe
The Soft Parade is my favorite album of theirs. Jim is very soused on it. Great band.
oh man it was great,i was 17 at the time.
I had a roommate whose girlfriend would constantly blast The Doors for hours at a time in our apartment. I had always liked the band, yet grew to hate them, but I think it was more that I couldn't stand her. Within a couple of years I appreciated them again.
I was too young to have ever seen them live, but I did see Robbie Krieger do a show at a little bar in Tallahassee about 15 years ago. Coincidentally (but not at all related to this thread), it was the same bar wher Sebastian Janikowski, now of The Raiders, was arrested for snorting date rape drug when he was at FSU.
You lucky bastard! AWESOME!
Welcome!! The Doors were a great f'n band!
I think the fact that their music is pretty genre soft helps.
They have a real bluesy side in LA Woman. They have psychedelia. They have basic pop. And they have long form epic songs.
It is hard to find something they don't do.
And lyrics are a huge plus if you are literary minded - except for Krieger's more basic songs, he knew how to hook, but Jim knew how to write.
Got into them when I was fourteen or so and have always loved them. I am not a 'classic' rock fan by any means. I love metal, grunge, EDM, punk, indy - lots of stuff that sound nothing like the Doors. But the Doors will always be my favorite.
When I first got a guitar, I bought the guitar book for best of the doors. Crystal Ship was the first song I learned. Love it.
I saw the Doors twice.. Morrison was a true poet
Morrison's in the "27 Club", an exclusive group of talented artists who died at age 27. Other members include Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Kurt Cobain and Amy Winehouse.
Can`t wait until Bieber and Cyrus are 27......keep the tradition going.
I WISH I could have seen The Doors live. The Doors, Led Zeppelin and Jimi Hendrix are the big 3 I wish I was around to see live. Stevie Ray Vaughn too.
The one concert that comes to mind is the story that Morrison dropped 100 hits of acid, (which I can't believe is even close to being true) while playing at the Whiskey in Hollywood - where they were the house band for a while.
People I've talked to who've seen them live all said it depended on how Jim was that night. It was either an incredible concert or a complete debacle. It all came down to how fucked up he was.
What do you think babybear? Was Jim on or off the night you saw him?
I'm so jealous.... either way it must have been awesome.
