Today in The Doors history: January 4, 1967

A Holiday Message From John Densmore

Sometimes, it just happens

“He was my friend, we were college buddies, we put a band together and the band became famous, and we realised our artistic vision. Who’s going to write better poetry than Jim Morrison?” –Ray Manzarek to MOJO, December 1997.

On Jim, by Bruce Botnick

Rolling Stone writer invites you to kick him in the ass, but...

“You can kick me in the ass for saying this (I don't mind): this is the Doors' greatest album and (including their first) the best album so far this year. A landmark worthy of dancing in the streets.” –Robert Meltzer for Rolling Stone on “L.A. Woman”

"Basically the Doors were a solid unit because we believed in our music so any little things that came up would just be day-to-day shit.” –Ray Manzarek speaking with Sounds, December 1973.

“There are similarities and there are differences. The main similarity is the improvisation; the main difference is probably in the beat.

Mojo Magazine On The Doors' Magic

"They caught the sense of dread and menace that hung in the air like gunsmoke, and they did it with hypnotic cool.” –MOJO, December 1997.

 

 

Jim Morrison on his inspiration

“You can't predict what's going to happen. You just have to go with it. We're trying to project our music, us, our ideas. Our ideas are in the songs, in the music.” –Jim Morrison
