    Thanks, Dawg. I really enjoyed listening to it.

    I've always loved The Doors. "No One Here Gets Out Alive" by Danny Sugerman was a great bio of Morrison.

    The father is a good man but he troubled me. He had no idea what made his son famous or was interested to find out. He never listened to one full song from his son.

    Read sugarmans book, JM distanced himself from his parents and said in interviews that his parents were deceased...

    That struck me as really weird also, extending beyond the generation gap.

    Jim's sister seemed like a genuinely nice person, though.

    Stern never got anything that was cool or manly. If it was Gay he got it.

    The Doors: "Howard said his dad gave him this Doors album that he got for free and he was ready to throw up. He said their albums had like 50 bad songs on them and one hit."

    Maroon 5: "Howard said The Beatles put out a lot of songs that weren't commercial songs. He said that Maroon 5 is doing the same thing :jj:...this song seems like a catchy tune."

    Fred hates 'em too. Coincidentally, I hate Fred and Howard, but love The Doors. Go figure.

    ...and now, ladies and gentleman, Train, Sugar Ray and Kelly Clarkson! Sternapalooza 2012!

    Blood in the streets of the town of New Haven....
    Blood stains the roofs and the palm trees of Venice.
    Blood in my love in the terrible summer....
    Bloody red sun of fantastic L.A.
    Blood screams her brain as they chop off her fingers.
    Blood will be born in the birth of a nation....
    Blood is the rose of mysterious union.
