"Matt, Very cool thanks for posting the link. I wrote abt that film in a Doors Examiner article about a year ago? It's cool they excerpted the part of The Doors, and its a very different perspective than the usual story. Jim"

Ray Manzarek and Michael McClure's Symbiosis and Synergy

I saw Michael McClure and Ray Manzarek at Lounge Ax in Chicago in the 80’s and for a moment I was transported by the words and music. It felt like I’d broken through something. In “The Piano Poems”, Manzarek and McClure sit in for a live set in San Francisco and there’s always the possibility to be transported by these two and their words and music.Read entire review at The Doors…See More

The Doors riot at the Singer Bowl

Flushing Meadows, NY, August 2nd 1968. The security guards and uniformed police officers brought The Doors to the stage of the Singer Bowl through the gauntlet of the crowd. As they made their way to the stage, fans grabbed and pulled at the band members.Prior to the band going on stage, Jim Morrison wandered around backstage and on the grounds of the concert followed by the “Feast of Friends” film crew which captured some now iconic scenes of Morrison that were used in the film and would later…See More

Frank Lisciandro's Photographs

Frank Lisciandro has added vastly to The Doors fans’ knowledge of The Doors and Jim Morrison. Lisciandro was a film school friend of Jim Morrison and Ray Manzarek, helped film “Feast of Friends” and “HWY” (Paul Ferrara also was part of The Doors film team), and has helped carry on the legacy of Jim Morrison as poet. He was part of bringing “An American Prayer” to fruition. Lisciandro has even worked with the Courson’s (who hold the copyright to Jim Morrison’s poetry) to bring out the books…See More

Jim Morrison's Motorcycle?

Did Jim Morrison own a motorcycle? There are no pictures of Morrison riding a motorcycle while there are films of Jim riding a bike, on a boat, and driving his Cobra. In the biographies and the published reminisces of Jim’s friends there’s no mention of Morrison buying a motorcycle or arriving anywhere on a motorcycle. But documents say James Douglas Morrison owned a motorcycle.Don Ince a vintage motorcycle collector and restorer of old motorcycles recently ran across a motorcycle for sale on…See More

I thought “We Want the World: Jim Morrison, The Living Theatre and the FBI” by Daveth Milton was going to be a sensationalized and/or a conspiracy theory that pops up on the fringes of fandom, but it wasn’t. I found “We Want the World” to be an insightful look at what a lot of Doors fans think they know a lot about Jim Morrison’s performance at the Dinner Key Auditorium on March 1, 1969, and how Morrison was influenced by the Living Theatre and tried to bring their tactics to a mass audience at…See More

The Doors Welcome the Digital Resurrection?

Since Tupac Shakur’s holographic resurrection at the Coachella Festival two weeks ago it seems a lot of estates of dead rock stars and/or their families are expressing interest in resurrecting dead rock stars, it looks like the revolution is upon us.The very life-like hologram of Shakur is causing not ripples through the concert touring industry but waves and who knows if those waves will turn into tidal waves. Rolling Stone Magazine ran a poll asking readers who they would like to see in…See More

Will Jim Morrison play with The Doors again?

Welcome to the future!John Densmore has said he wouldn’t play with former bandmates, Ray Manzarek and Robby Krieger, as The Doors unless Jim Morrison was singing with the band again. Aside from a few jokes in bad taste, that was an impossibility until Sunday night when Tupac-Shakur “appeared” at the Coachella Festival. So with the technology able to create a realistic image, can long dead rock stars appear “live” in concert again? Will The Doors cancel Jim Morrison’s cancellation to the…See More

Dawn's Highway Goes Public

Posted on February 11, 2013 at 10:05am 0 Comments

“Me, and my mother and father, and grandmother and grandfather were driving through the desert at dawn…” so starts the story of a haunted sounding Jim Morrison as he told of the mystical experience of the soul of a dead Indian leaping into his soul. But did it happen? Oliver Stone illustrated the scene in his opening of his movie The Doors. Morrison’s parents downplayed the significance, chalking it up to Jim’s vivid imagination, but in a discussion with friends Frank Lisciandro and…
