The Doors: New Video & Tribute at … Caffe Lena (?!?)

Tuesday, March 20th, 2012

Yes, it’s a new music video for the Doors’ classic “L.A.

Seeing half the Doors live is an unforgettable experience if you are a fan.

Seeing any of them alive 40 years later is nothing short of a miracle if you’ve seen Oliver Stone’s movie (“The Doors”) or the recent documentary (“People Are Strange”). Or if you’ve read the first (and still best) biography of legendary lead singer Jim Morrison (Jerry Hopkins and Daniel Sugarman’s “No One Here Gets Out Alive”) and believe the mythology or the truth. Or can even tell the difference.

To have the music live on so vibrantly, so vitally – so many years later – is the eighth wonder of the world, considering that Morrison died (or disappeared?) in Paris four decades ago just as his star was crash-landing due to drugs, alcohol, legal problems and concert no-shows.

“Hmm… I think that’s a more important question for people who grew up in the ’60s and ’70s than it is for people who grew up in the ’50s, when they were just making the transition from radio to records. I can’t remember buying hardly anything in the ’50s. I was mostly listening to the radio, not purchasing albums.
