Not a happy mood.

I grew up as a kid in California listening to the Doors, the variety we have on the station is awesome and much enjoyed.

Hi All, well its been six month or more since I actually started to listen to some of the Doors tracks, before this I knew the name and
that the lead singer had died very young but that was about it, not anymore .... I finally bought an album , CD for the car
I was driving around all yesterday afternoon with it at full tilt, this after having been inspired by a great documentary I watched
on Friday night "twice", suddenly all the tracks came to life one after the other, ..... I am now hooked  Jammin' Guitar 
I am now on a mission  Marching..., to compile a few cd's with some of the rare or long tracks

Dill,


Jim Morrison was well strange, but they were strange times. All in all he was a talented poet, songwriter and singer, however he did waste his life away. I grew up as a kid listening to the Doors and do so some 35 years later. If you have not seen it I would highly recommend watching the movie starring Val Kilmer as Jim Morrison....very good acting jobs, one of his best; and a fairly accurate movie they say.

Today was the 40th anniversary of his death.  Actually his death was a bit odd and still a 'conspiracy', for some, that he had decided he didn't want to be Jim Morrison any longer.  There was no autopsy since it was considered there was no foul play involved.  There was a lot of odd things revolving around the death, murder, he didn't die, etc.  Even the Eddie and the Cruisers movie was up for consideration as a Jim Morrison alternate but again it's conspiracy much like Elvis and the entire Beatles thing of Paul is dead.  I love reading that stuff, it's always kind of wild to think that Elvis and Jim are still (or were) walking among us and Paul isn't Paul. lol

Hi All, I am going to buy the doors film and do some research, it’s just funny that I have know of them for all these years
but never listened, I do as a teenager remember that a few kids at school used to bang on about them, but they had long
hair and I was cropped and into two tone, skar and punk, ...riders on the storm I have known for year but like I say that was
about it, if I heard a track by accident I would switch of mentally. The drummer John was saying in the documentary that
 I watched, which was really just a basic overview and how they put all the tracks together, allegedly  Jim always told them
to write songs that in a hundred years time people could still listen too, he may have not got it far wrong ...... and to buy
their album on his 40th anniversary..... looks to me like we lost another pop legend, anyway found them now and so will
now enjoy their music for maybe another 40 years,  can’t tell yet if I will every  make it that far to 87, but hey that would be
a sight in the old people home, me bopping around to Back Door Man, I’ll certainly take some of these tunes to my grave.

Hey, Dill, congrats on your latter day discovery of The Doors.  I've always liked them as rather unique and original representatives of their own brand of dark rock and roll.  One of my favorite memories of The Doors was walking into our newly-built Radio Research enlisted man's club in Chu Lai one night.  Everybody there was extremely happy to be able to pop open a beer in our own refuge.  A Door's tape was playing on an old, reel-to-reel Akai (I believe) and booming Break on Through (to the Other Side) through some big Sherwood speakers (if I remember correctly).  It was our statement about being "cool" in the middle of the war!  Cool  Here are some shots of that fine establishment, starting with its original canvas roof! --
