For those kids that are too young to remember the 1960’s, the Doors was an American Rock band comprised of John Densmore, Robby Krieger, Ray Manzarek, and Jim Morrison.
Jim Morrison was the lead singer and the major composer for the group. And, of course, every single young woman was madly “in love” with him…….well, except me.
I thought John (the drummer) was the man for me. He never would have noticed me if we had ever been in the same room..that is totally beside the point.
The first song I sang with my high school rock band was “Light my Fire”..and it was just the first song.
Most everything we played was by the Doors. I played the keyboard and was the vocalist for “Clear Smoke” a band I conned into moving to Elon College with me my freshman year so I could still sing. The guys lived in an old VW van they moved between parking lots for almost six months.
I still have a recording of me singing “Love her madly”…I just don’t have a reel-to-reel player anymore.
Here are some of my favorite songs done by my favorite group of all time……………
