I saw the recent airing of The Doors "When You're Strange" film, and I also recall seeing the "PBS" studio concert they did as well-- Both are highly recommended viewing... There's no doubt that the level of originality, creativity and talent that Jim Morrison and the rest of the band put into The Doors' music was beautiful, sometimes scary, definitely massive... One thing that I always admired about The Doors while growing up was the way their songs sounded so incredibly perfect no matter where you heard them-- Even in a car with the most stripped down, no frills, "mono" AM radio, their music still projected their unique mood, ambiance and mysterious flare-- It was "mind music" that somehow sneaked its way into the mainstream pop culture-- It's amazing that they managed to "crossover" to pop, even with some songs that were obviously "dark" and "contemplative" ... There's a club 'round these parts called The Starland Ballroom, the engineer we're working with in the recording studio told me that Ray Manzarek (the keyboard player) and one other member of The Doors either did a gig, or was going to do a gig there... Of course it's a shame that Jim Morrison couldn't really handle the pressures of life and wound up leaving us relatively young-- There will never be another one quite like him-- And oh, what a voice-- A voice that can reach the core of your soul...
