The Doors Official Thread

I couldn't find a thread about The Doors, so I started one up. Next to PJ, they are my favorite band. Today is Robby Krieger's 71st birthday - and he's still playing!

Any other big Doors fans here?

    Yep. My dad use to play their first album, all the time, when I was young. The Soft Parade is one of my favorite albums. The End is one of my favorite LSD tunes, from back in the day. I loved that song, while I was tripping! I also thought Val Kilmer played a great Jim Morrison.

  • Hell yes! They are my fourth favorite band, just behind The Stones , PJ and Nirvana. Unreal how much music these guys made in such a short while.

    Question, you ever hear the post Morrison Doors? Other Voices and Full Circle have some pretty good gems. Personal favorite is "the peking king and the new York queen"

    Thought I would mention since we are celebrating Robbie.

    ^^^^^^ The only post Morrison Doors stuff I've heard, is just An American Prayer.

    Same here. I've thought about checking out the post Morrison stuff, but never have. Is it all music - no lyrics?

  • There was a time when my friends and I jammed to the Doors hard.

    Classics like Peace Frog were staples on our mixed tapes, but there was much more to the band outside of what might be considered their greatest hits (songs like the Changeling and Summers Almost Gone).

    I rarely listen to them anymore, but out of respect they are on all my devices.

    "The Changeling" is one of my favorites

    Love the Doors! And yes, Val killed it playing JM.

    Kind of off subject but anyone heard the Doors tribute album called Stoned Emaculate? Great album by some great artists.

    That's a great album - I haven't listened to it in years. I remember loving a STP soing on there. I forget which cover they did though
