"I listened yesterday. It's no reflection on you but I could'nt see where you were going or what you were going for. This early seventies thing did'nt get noticed the first time and you talk about friends of like Dealney and Bonnie who had records out like we're supposed to remember who they are. Then you play this long winded free jazz stuff that really grates on my nerves. And that noise without a beat and sounds like someones being pinched. Then you play a reggae song, I think you called it Dub, to what, be cool? You seem to really fetishize the whole folk thing too which is obnoxious to us who don't even care. I liked it when you played that punk song though. I like Joe Belock a lot." (Visit homepage.)

JA: How many times a week do you experience this symptom where you mention Steven Tyler? Would you say it's getting more or less frequent?
  Thu. 8/1/19 12:33pm andy the painter:

when i was traveling a lot for work, i always enjoyed the smooth jazz they played in the weather channel in the morning in the hotel room. do they still play that? (no tv now)

Is Steven Tyler causing you to miss work or other important commitments?

Since you asked, I'm not a fan of The Doors
Avatar Thu. 8/1/19 1:08pm coelacanth∅:

i like a lot of the doors, and dislike a lot. some of what i dislike i loathe (like almost the entire soft parade album); some of what i like, i love (like "the end").
Avatar Thu. 8/1/19 1:09pm coelacanth∅:

oh, and hello
Avatar Thu. 8/1/19 1:11pm John Allen:

the Doors remind me of girls i would have liked to date in 7th grade who were too sophisticated for me, but by the 10th grade they were hanging in parking lots with guys much stupider. that's the Doors to me. Tell us your worst Doors memory...
Avatar Thu. 8/1/19 1:12pm duke:

The Doors have been played on WFMU which says something but I'm not sure what.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/1/19 1:12pm Marcel M:

Hey John.

I love the story in Danny Says about him and Jim Morrison.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/1/19 1:13pm Marcel M:

Here is my Doors story. A few days ago I tuned into WFMU and The Doors were on, so I changed over to Q1043 and... The Doors were on. Then I put on WNYC. True Story.
Avatar Thu. 8/1/19 1:14pm Hubig Pie:

My favorite Doors song is that whiskey bar Kurt Weill thingy
Avatar Thu. 8/1/19 1:14pm coelacanth∅:

my worst doors memory is being compared to Jim Morrison. (who i have never looked like and gods forbid i don't act like)
Avatar Thu. 8/1/19 1:15pm coelacanth∅:

my other worst doors memory is that i still see jim morrison posters on college students' walls now and then.
Avatar Thu. 8/1/19 1:16pm duke:

Long ago before I met Mrs. duke, I had a girlfriend who loved Jim Morrison. Breaking up was a smart move.
Avatar Thu. 8/1/19 1:16pm John Allen:

coelacanth∅ wins because he's the closest here to resemble Jim Morrison

Marcel that's how the world works sometimes. 2 days ago i heard emerson lake & palmer playing in 3 different places. (a store, a bank and a cafe)

haha John NO!

(ask Marcel, i have light hair!)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/1/19 1:19pm tim from champaign:

I liked the Doors in middle school and high school. I do not care for them now. But I do like Peace Frog. Ray Manzerek produced 4 great X albums. I give him credit for that and X credit for seeing something in the doors that I don't see.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/1/19 1:20pm sphere:

I've read some of Morrison's poetry, and it's just no good.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/1/19 1:21pm tim from champaign:

Rockers should not attempt to write and writers should not attempt to rock (except for Nick Cave).
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/1/19 1:22pm Marcel M:

I used to get compared to him as well... not anymore, thank god.

Here is another Doors story. When I was visiting Paris, I went to Pere Lachaise to see Balzac and Proust's graves. Two different people asked me which way to Jim Morrison's grave as if I would know based on my looks. I seriously considered cutting my hair, shaving and wearing a suit everyday just to avoid further confusion in that direction.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/1/19 1:23pm fleep:

You know that it would be untrue
You know that I would be a liar
If I was to say to you
I don't like The Doors
Because I do
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/1/19 1:23pm Barney Grubbs:

He's not really a rocker in practice, but John Darnielle's two books were enjoyable
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/1/19 1:24pm Marcel M:

@Coel: Yeah... I don't see the resemblance.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/1/19 1:24pm Drunken Creep:

Sometimes people are rockers and writers, Nick Cave, Patti, I read Violent J's autobiography this year and he's a solid rocker and writer too, believe it or not!

It's nice to imagine that Jim Morrison's best writing and music were still ahead of him.
Avatar Thu. 8/1/19 1:25pm coelacanth∅:

i think the first doors album is mostly very good; and the la woman album too. in-between were 2 mostly good albums, a mostly terrible album and a slightly less terrible album.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/1/19 1:25pm Marcel M:

But instead he died a bloated hog and clogged up pere lachaise.. Off to work! Bye all. Thanks, John.
Avatar Thu. 8/1/19 1:26pm coelacanth∅:

Marcel the comparisons to you make quite a lot more sense!
Avatar Thu. 8/1/19 1:27pm Hubig Pie:

In 1981, when I was 22, a friend and I made the pilgrimage to Pere Lachaise cemetary for the 10th anniversary of Jim Morrison's demise. Then I started reading Proust. Now I just watch wrestling on tv.
Avatar Thu. 8/1/19 1:28pm coelacanth∅:

(for the record he was a good-looking guy until he became a bloated hog)
Avatar Thu. 8/1/19 1:28pm coelacanth∅:

My worst Doors memory is arguing about his poetry with a hillbillly on Nantucket. It almost came to blows.

I think your right, coelacanth. My guess would have been Fabio vacations in Matthew Barney's Cremaster films.
