Over 600 fans waited outside Vintage Vinyl in Fords, New Jersey to meet John Densmore, legendary drummer of the Doors who was there promoting his new book, “The Doors: Unhinged.”
When I got my book signed, Densmore took the time to compliment me on my jacket before he signed my book. “Wow, that’s a great jacket!” he said.
I told him, “It’s an honor to meet you!” and shook his hand.
There’s a limited run on the books, 2500 only. I’m number 662!
I started reading the book last night and it’s super good. He illustrates the finer side of Jim Morrison, the genius that he was, rather than how he was known as a drunk. Also how Jim didn’t want his music used in commercials as a sell-out, he wasn’t in it just for the money. Good stuff and I can’t wait to read more.
(Look at all those CDs and records!)
Note that we didn’t plan this — it was just spur of the moment fun!
