1. I remember..

listening to WCFL in Chicago. They were playing this song when the announcer broke in with the news that Jim Morrison had died. It was obvious it wasn’t a planned stunt. I never cared much for Morrison, though I loved many of The Doors songs because of Ray Manzarek’s keyboard work. This one is my favorite.

2. I came to the Doors later. I needed some "age" to fully appreciate this kind of music.

They were very talented yet were probably destined for the flame-out that occurred with Morrison --ultimately ending in his death. But, I do appreciate their music and Jim's poetry in his lyrics.

5. Lots of great ones

I'm rather partial to When the Music's Over, myself.

4. I saw Ray Manzarek and Robby Krieger at the Park West in Chicago

Can't remember the year, but it was a damn good show. Ian Astbury did the vocals, and the band called itself Riders on the Storm.
