I didn't discover The Doors til long after Jim Morrison was dead. Then, around 1985 I heard 'Shaman's Blues' and I was totally hooked! It's all so much overlapping poetry you can get lost in it. I've listened to 'The Soft Parade' over and over for hours. I used to perform 'End of the Night', 'The End', 'Soul Kitchen', 'When the Music's Over', 'Peace Frog', 'The Spy', 'Cars Hiss by My Window', and 'Riders on the Storm'. Not that I was any fucking good, but the music spoke to me so much I had to play it, and I was still fooling myself I'd have a career as a performer in those days.
Proud to be an American
Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.
