Their version of "Gloria" is pretty tight.

Several years ago, I found this book at a local newspaper stand. I had heard so many rumors of Jim Morrison being alive and well and living in Louisiana that I decided to buy it. It is apparently authored by a local eccentric form a relatively influential family from Baton Rouge, who actually changed his name to Jim Morrison on the grounds that the late rock star's spirit entered his LSD-laced body during a Mardi Gras at Lee's Circle, and then inspired him to shake the establishment by subverting it's finacial institutions.It's difficult to tell if the many misspelled words are done so unwittingly or with artistic intent, or are the loose associations of a psychotic mind. Strangely enough, there is reportedly some truth to the author's claims of swindling the Bank of America (although he states that the story is classifed as fiction for the purposes of judicial review), and he actually later ran for lieutenant governor of Louisiana on the platform that he was the perfect person for a high-paying, do-nothing job. This is an interesting story of a strange an interesting eccentric from the Bayou state, but I think that the real Jim Morrison lies in Pere Lachaise.

A friend of mine had that book and one other by the same guy. He said he went with a friend to drop off a bag of weed sometime in the mid 80s, at an apartment in near Belair.
His buddy the dealer said he should ride along and see this guy.

He said when they opened the door to the apartment, there was two folding tables loaded with computer equipment. The walls were covered in gay porn, and the guy was there wearing nothing but some tighty whiteys. He proceded to relay the story that he was really Jim Morrison and a bunch of other crazy stuff, like he was a NSA agent or some shite like that. My friend to this day says it's the craziest scene he's ever come across.

When they left, he gave them each a copy of the two books he'd written at that point. When my friend first told me the story, he went into a closet and dug out the books. I took them home with the intention to read them, but about a quarter of the way into the first one I got to the point I couldn't really follow the writers train of thought and it was just a rambling mess.

A couple years later I asked my bud if he still had them and he said he'd thrown them away. I told him he should have kept them jusat as conversation pieces.

You're the first person other than my friend who I've ever known that knew about that guy.

Who needs a bass player when you had Ray Manzarek on the keys?

I had the privilege of seeing Ray and Robby play a show here in Houston with a cover band lead singer playing the role of Jim; it was amazing.

The Doors are my favorite band of all time.

re: The Doors
They were by far my favorite rock band when I was growing up and Morrison is the quintessential front man.

As in Roadhouse Blues. It's still pretty much to this day basic garage style blues-rock-n-roll.

For a band that lasted less than 5 years in the main, they were damn good.

re: The Doors
The Doors are an incredibly talented group of musicians...Kreiger, Densmore, Manzarak are just remarkable to listen to...Morrison was, as a previous poster lamented, hot and cold lyrically but what a great voice. LA Woman is a great song...the album version of Light My Fire with the guitar and organ solos is a great song...you just gotta keep your eyes on the road and your hands upon the wheel...

re: The Doors
They’ve been my favorite band for a long long time. So many great songs and a few bad ones.

I never could stand Spanish Caravan. Two of my favorites were Wintertime Love and Summers Almost Gone.

I don't think I've ever heard anything any of them have done since the Doors other than playing Doors songs. The Doors' music had a unique sound but it wasn't particularly challenging to play.
