Jim Morrison and the Doors weren’t around for very long, but their popularity continues to live on long after Morrison’s death in 1971. I first learned about the Doors thanks to an album my parents had, and I always wished I could have seen them in concert.
I enjoyed sort of the the next best thing to a Doors show last week at Infinity Hall in Hartford. For a birthday present, Kara got me tickets to the “Riders on the Storm” tribute show. These guys were spot on.
Added bonus: ESPN legend Chris Berman was at the show and supplied us with a fascinating supply of Doors factoids. He told us he once even sang “Light My Fire,” with the band. That’s the next show I want to see. By the way, that’s Ryan aka Ray Manzarek with us in the picture.
Here’s a Doors factoid from me: 50 years ago this year Morrison was arrested in New Haven. Check out the film below.
