After blowing minds as the house band at L.A.'s Whisky-a-Go-Go, where they got fired for playing the Oedipal drama "The End," the Doors were ready to unleash their organ-driven rock on the world. "On each song we had tried every possible arrangement," drummer John Densmore said, "so we felt the whole album was tight." The Blakean pop art on their debut was beyond Top 40 attention spans.

Jim Morrison & his dog Sage.... In my humble opinion the greatest band of all time.... Just got into town about an hour ago....  (A true legend, hearing Morrison & Co at 15 was one of the best experiences of my life, after hearing "Riders on the Storm" I was a convert, for life - A.R.)

"Friends can help each other. A true friend is someone who lets you have total freedom to be yourself-and especially to feel. Or, not feel. Whatever you happen to be feeling at the moment is fine with them. That's what real love amounts to- letting a person be who they really are."- Jim Morrison <3
