"Morrison, as we know from organist Ray Manzarek's book "Light My Fire", once demanded that Densmore be kicked out of the group; he was just too neurotic and got on Morrison's nerves. Densmore found Morrison, particularly as his alcoholism and erratic behavior grew, so disturbing that Densmore had chronic skin rashes from the stress."


laugh.gif Well that's convinced me as we know the Ray is veracity personified.
Ray's book is fun and I have always liked it. It's like discussing the 40s with a very dotty old aunt. They get very excited about the time but forget most of it and just make up cool stuff.
John's was a lot more sombre but a better account of the tale.
Neither book was a great Historical record and more akin to the daft film The Doors are trawling out at the moment than anything that bothered with any drive for accuracy.
Which was best. I would say John's even though I enjoyed Ray's mystical account better laugh.gif

I would like to say that without john densmore their would have been no Doors.


I have said this to my fellow rock fans for decades now but I could, just off the top of my head, name a couple of dozen better drummers that JD just as I could name the same amount of better guitar players than Robby and keyboard players than Ray. Hell I can name a dozen or so better singers than Jim.
But after nigh on 50 years of listening to rock music I could not name one single person that could have made the Doors a better band than they were.
That's what being unique is all about and still applies after nearly exactly 45 years down the road.

You could say that the doors were 4 equal parts or if there were no jim there were no doors, true in a sense. Ray and jim formed the doors, jim had the words, ray his unique keyboard/bass fills, robby was reliable for his guitar and john for adding responses on his drums to jims words, ray filling the rhythmically with his keyboard bass lines.  Like most groups they created a little bit of magic.  They were like 4 points to a diamond without one of those points the diamond lost that shine.

£8.39 is not a bad price for a book like this....a rare example of VFM by The Doors perhaps laugh.gif

Wait…is this a dream I had??

I was under the impression that John was writing a fictional book not related to The Doors, don’t get me wrong I am super thrilled and I can’t wait to read the new book!

Anyone else was under the same impression?

I got a message when I went to pre order the Elektra book that Unhinged had been removed from my basket as it was no longer available from the seller. Which I presume was related to the October date they had.
I imagine we will see back for pre order once the dates sort themselves out.
