Rock and Roll has never been interpretated like this again.

Very interllectual and avant-garde. I here Bertold Brecht and generally the music of the 30ies/40ies from Germany in many songs of The Doors.

Thank you, I know.

I will watch it now and a second time in a fortnights time with lots of whisky, as I am dieting at the moment and don't drink. 🥃🥃

After five whisky free weeks I am enjoying all Arte docunentaries

Yes, The Doors where highly intellectual. Manserek and the others all painters, poets, writers. They where Bowie, but than as a band. I like Cream a lot. Bruce, Eric, and Ginger.

I was also thinking of David Bowie in this context 😀

A shame, I did not put in into the post, but Bowie is also top level of music as an artistic expression.

One of the greatest. 27 Club.

. . . that overshadows the original. ;-)

Great band

Jim was Jimbo sometimes. Racing in a muscle car completely nuts. Let’s remember him as a great performer. With the great electric piano input of Ray Manserek.

But with drugs and alcohol?

Rock and Roll is nice, the stars living a risky life. I enjoy life without risky drinks and drugs. Let’s say, if i would be a star i want to life the life of George Clooney. Or Daniel Craig. But i know myself, i am more a musician. ...  

Incredible music ...

Try listening to “Riders on the storm” one night in the dark when it’s raining.

.... I did, in a bed with a woman. Aaah, my heydays.

I mean, I am still in my heydays😀🥃🥃

True story: there was a regular customer at The Rainbow . . .

. . . who would barge in half-drunk, order a shot of tequila from the bar, then walk over to the cashier and 'ask' she play LA Woman , handing her $20 in the process. As soon as it came on, he'd slam the tequila, pound it on the nearest counter, turn arou... 

Bazaar !

That’s so funny..

It was coming down in buckets last night on the Hudson and I had Riders on …the song was a rework of a movie western theme song that they slowed down..extremely interesting band musically. They initially come off as a garage band but Krieger was a classic... 

Yes, pure poetry. Well said.

Interesting ...

Thanks for that.

My wife was fortunate to see them live in Berkeley...

For one of the best covers ever of a Doors song, give a listen to Patricia Barber cover Light My Fire from her Album Modern Cool
