"The stone riders on the stall and a little part of me is thinking that maybe he did go to paris just to get away from all of this as much as anything else. While some charges went away it was the other things that happened in the the stuff involving the faa in federal charges. That weren't going away. That really were hanging over him. Maybe that mattered a little bit in the move that he made. I'm not giving. Jim morrison a pass for his behavior on the flight. Or anything like that. Because i was totally unacceptable completely unacceptable and wrong then now and everywhere in between as a role on the same page. Yeah there's no way that we would be supporting that but at the same time. I don't have a problem with dude whipping his dick out on stage while he's performing now if you were to rub one out. I think that's a big problem but again. If you pay rigi allen show you know what you're getting if jim morrison singing and his penis happens to fall out of his trousers big deal. I think that Things are different. Now there's they are always changing different now than they were then and if you look at it they were trying to get something they could string him up by his genitals with and they found that the bigger stick was the federal charges of what happened on the plane. If you want to avoid these situations in life then as now don't do stupid shit on airplanes end of story and of the discussion and really maybe to some degree. So we kind of wrap up of the discussion about whether morrison left because the pressure. I'm sure that the pressure was pretty intense. Look at the legal problems he had. And i think he was smart enough to know that the federal charges were a hell of a lot worse than the miami dade county charges or the The new haven charges. Because those were local authorities versus flying on a flight from la to phoenix. I'm betting wing you found the fbi file. You thought this'll be anything to read and learn about not knowing that we'd be sitting here on the whole thing apart just taken apart this at the i. File is very revealing about what we were doing with our government and artists that were over or on the edge back then the same way or similarly to what was going on in uk and that may be the biggest thing that i take away from all of this also the fact that they were very on top of what was going on in quote unquote counter culture as they called it. So i'm sure the amount of f. b. i. files from that time on musicians artists and people who spoke against the system are rather large. And i'm sure that if you alive during that time and had an arrest record or did anything of that nature in your youth during that time. You might have a page or two in the fbi. Archives stopped at. Don't tell anybody. I i'm not doing anybody about your lips. Lift out what it comes down to is some of the things marcus that we've suspected for a while That he maybe didn't even intend on coming back and doing anything in the future with the doors or anything else in other words. Some of these things that we've kicked around when you're not on the podcast kicking around there may be some validity to some of those claims or thoughts and learned a lot about behind the scenes. How powerful people will try to make things happen. That are on a personal purely personal. Not even a political agenda. You wanna play politics. That's one thing but when you take something like this and some of the words that were exchanged or offensive to me as an american. I agree with you on that and i don't understand why the government went after people like this so hard well really nasty. Words came from that one guy that broadcast guy. That's true is what's important similar to what i think. Our mission was when we set out on the brian jones project so Another unusual circumstance in a different kind of an episode.

Victor Noir's Mysterious Erection
"Year more than three million people visit the parish cemetery in paris it's home to hundreds of thousands of tombs. And you can buy a map directing you to all the graves of the cemetery. Most famous residents folks like the singer. Jim morrison and writers like oscar wilde and produced but among that list of celebrities and historical figures is a name that pretty much. No one will recognize but whose tomb attracts a lot of visitors. And i'm very certain kind of visitor with a very certain kind of neat. it's the tomb of victor noir. Victor nor was a journalist in paris in the eighteen hundreds and he didn't publish anything especially remarkable during a short lifetime and he probably would have been forgotten a history if it weren't for the fact that he was shot and killed by prince pierre. Bonaparte the nephew of napoleon that act triggered a wave of protests and led to the commissioning of a statue by the acclaimed. Sculptor jules delauro. But even that isn't really why people are visiting his grave today. The visit for more personal reasons and they aren't there for victor exactly. The statue that covers. Victor noirs grave depicts him laying down as if he had just been shot and that alone is kind of just. But then you notice a couple of other things. I the crotch of this statue has a bulge to it in second. The bulge is very very shiny. Though the statue was largely darkin discolored that particular part has been polished by the hands of countless win over the decades women who are drawn to the statue of victor nawar because rubbing it supposedly confers. Good luck in love and fertility. The full ritual involves kissing his lips rubbing the bulge and dropping a flower in his hat.
Could this offseason be pivotal for Don Sweeney?
"Could be like if we want to go there this could be the second most pivotal offseason. Don Sweeney's tenure is Jim Morrison would be I mean, yeah, we obviously know what the the first one was some hits some misses I'll defend on Thursday and say people forget the meal music trade was was very solid but should it be his want this could be kind of the offseason wear off he shakes it up and there's been there's been little shit shaking in the Don Sweeney tenure really other than that 2015 offseason where he kind of came in and moved Hamilton moved Lucic got the Draft Picks 6 in the first two rounds. We all know the story there but dead. This could be like the next kind of version of that obviously not as big but like if you look at where the Bruins are, I mean what happens with Krug? What happens with Chara those to move up itself are pretty franchised altering. And then from there there's obviously been the the Rask rumors. I I wouldn't be surprised if something happened with Rask because we we should never be surprised by anything that happens with Rask anymore. And this point that's the case. This was like a weird enough year and obviously with it happened in the the postseason like There's so much uncertainty surrounding that player that that nothing that happens with him with surprise me. So yeah between Krug we think departing who knows what happens with Chara. I think the flu tone made a really great point that was sort of an obvious point that we've all been kind of sleeping on like it is possible that Chara reaches free agency and who knows if the Bruins have or anything with him maybe a team jumps in and they're like, hey, man, you're the missing piece like this is your what what we need and maybe yeah, maybe he just maybe he departs so possibilities are plentiful and I haven't even gotten to the Do they make like a real hockey trade? Do they trade Jake debrusk? They trade Brandon Carlo. My pie-in-the-sky thing that will never happen is like they find a way to make Carlos the centerpiece of a Patrick line a deal which financially and for other reasons just does not seem like something they would do but oh my God, I have been banging the table to get more scores on this team and if they found a way even if it's losing Carlo in an offseason where you also lose Krug, like imagine if I thought they had Patrick lyonnet David pastrnak and like imagine having three of the best goal scorers in the planet on your team

Bill New the gym was taking some extended Arner in Paris and build instructed everyone to keep their distance. Let them learn some new words meet some New People or you know what? No one cares just let the guy disappear. Bill Miliband would work L. A. Woman on the Home Front continue to repair the still fragile image of the doors post. Miami and when Jim is ready to come home ready to get back in the saddle and make music again, it'd be waiting. Again bill was smart in new deep down that would never happen. Jim was never coming Home Jim wasn't going to prison wasn't making any more records with the doors was on indefinite hiatus from the world. Even use that word when he spoke to bill about status in Paris indefinitely he'd remade himself into an ex PAT is long gone.

Next to in case he had a throw up on the fly. Then more cost came in the Jim Morrison wasn't dead. He was just hospitalized. It was very tired. He was resting yet another bout of that coughing fit worried spit up blood and would feel woozy and the news started running conflicting stories. June was in a hospital Jim was in a sanitarium.

Bill picked up the. Receiver it was Pamela. Voice was quiet. Week. Broken up by the Cross Atlantic connection. She sounded like she'd been transported somewhere somewhere. She never been before and she was finding footing. She told Bill that the rumors were true. Jim was dead. Doe needed to be in the next plane, the Paris.

He was murdered to discredit the counterculture movement coke alcohol heart attacks suicide killed by counts. Macula is vicious dealers was a really dead at all. You just figured out how to disappear completely now old Evil Spirit got a greyhound bus ride. Pamela greeted bill the door to her flat when he finally made it bill needed to see the body needed closure for personal reasons and needed confirmation of her professional matters. Hamlet collapsed and the bills arms let it loose like she'd been holding back at Davis of tears days. Now, which she had, she waited on bill shoulder bill confronted her repeated requests the body. Whereas the body I need to see. That's the problem. Pamela told him. There is nobody. There is not champ. The fuck, do you mean there is no Bill couldn't believe he traveled all the way from Los Angeles to Paris well, over five thousand miles at Penn was request to see after his friend and employer because Jim Morrison was dead to Morrison very much very dead and now there's no body. Pamela was scatter brained. She had flushed the rest of her heroin stash and burned a handful of gyms letters before authorities got the flat on Saturday when they did she was too paranoid to panic to firmly in the twin grip of shock and trauma to think clearly, there have been a paramedic that warning a corner and Jim had been declared dead. They said natural causes most likely a heart attack because there's no suspicion of foul play no autopsy was performed French love. They put jim in a coffin then in their put him in a coffin sealed it up. It was French tradition do a quick. They told Pamela that's the way it was done seal a month. Then in there is she could be with them in the flat she signed the death certificate that they brought her. She didn't think to ask questions or ask for more information or asked to make a phone call because she just did not time to think she wasn't thinking. The first thing she had done since Jim Diapers to call bill she had no one impairs no one really could help. There are a handful of friends and then people on the fringes like the cow, the cow disappeared suddenly and the friends they had their more like drinking buddies and friends dinner France maybe but not real friends that the bill siddons type who knows what to do. Stood in the flat with Pamela, the coffin was there. was already a done deal. But was going to be on opening. Probably a million tabby be breaking. So unable to confirm that it was really Jim's body inside unable to speak to the attending doctor get a second opinion. They'll stood the flap pam the Kaufman stood.

The second rib of Liberty Row Bears John rocketed straight up his nose and then he rocketed straight downwards hell bent a sudden in sublime shocked and his consciousness it got darker the noxious odor of the Rock and roll circus bathroom stall colonel he felt like he was submerged in Liquid Dick, soupy liquid lake. It still breathe just fine. If he was told even flushed down the stalls toilet, he wouldn't doubt it for a moment is cough continued although the taste of blood and his throat was an irritating constant reassured him that his lungs were filling with that strange soupy water. He held onto the faintest memory jimbo pieces. He had just gotten a glimpse of these snorted enthusiastically the so-called person who always appeared when Jim was at his best and hung around until he was at his worst. But he no longer picture Jimbo's face in this. Mind's I. What he sounded like what he smelled like the sorts of things he would say the rocket hit a heroin a blown the whole concept of jimbo's straight out of Jim Sears. The bartender and looked at him oddly tonight when he was talking to Jimbo at the bar almost as if he'd been talking to an empty store and then he flipped back further in his mind which was soggy from the smack and thought of all the Times he went on a raucous bender made a sea made a fool of himself him only. Always always Jim. Just Jim. Jimbo had no story he was from nowhere he lived somewhere but where Jimbo was a crutch something to hide bad behavior behind a mask of pricking title win. Jim felt like being a prick he knew that he'd always known. Jimbo was nobody Jim Morrison Somebody Jimbo's weird obsession with Billy Cook in the Zodiac and the wizard was Jim's obsessions deep seated obsessions of dark twisted fucked up America. He's so wanted to put himself in a dark twisted fucked up story line of his own repressed as child conservative household Florida bullshit rose above tossed it off, left it behind saws repressed conservative upbringing in the face of an American public confused with who they were supposed to be craving instruction direction craving chaos to turn their little insignificant world's upside down.

They thought he was garnering their shit. He'd been in there for twenty minutes the dealers who let them inside if fled the scene long ago and the men were glad to see the gym was all right.

Late night early morning air was still humid from the day before he puked on a sidewalk reached in his pocket for a cigarette. But realized he left him at the bar somewhere. At the Flat Pamela didn't seem that surprised to see him. She obviously had taken her own fair share snorts that evening and was equally out of it. She opened her eyes wide when Jim devolved into another coughing fit he ran into the bathroom in puked again was mess full of coughing blood having the kind of revelations one can only have on lonely bender in a foreign country. He needed a bath a bath with doing good stabilize them get back to that warm liquid floating feeling he had experienced earlier in the circus bathroom stall. You turn the bathroom Faucet on and the water rushed out in the sound of it was a pleasant drone. Soothing. Watch the steam rise from the water as it slowly filled up the top his eyes lost in the swirls of heat the steam easing into his chest and calming his cough. He took his clothes off climbed in the tub shut off the Faucet. Then, there was no sound at all just the sound of his own breathing and that absence of sound which in turn makes its own sound a ringing faint at first rising heard sounds in the absence of some that aren't there. And then he felt the nausea crash over a big wave of it to stomach retched and he sat up from his recliner position yelled for Pamela nothing. The wave him again gaining intensity now Jim yelled for Pamela again, she was in the bathroom few moments later. Felt like an eternity to Jim. Have a sleep fully dosed walking.

She was just realizing this. Now, the grateful dead's version of Sonny Boy Williamson's good morning little schoolgirl was playing the signal is full of static in Hong. I'm GonNa leave you baby the break day McConnell the way you treat me I gotta stay away. She walked back to the bathroom slowly cautiously, she started to have bad thoughts about what she'd find in their worst thoughts the thoughts that she had from time to time when she couldn't find him when he wasn't where he said he didn't come home when he said he would the thoughts that pop up in the band couldn't find him when his manager couldn't find when it seemed like Jim just up and left the world without letting Seoul. No. Pamela was used to those thoughts but that didn't make them any less difficult. It didn't make the journey them hallway to the bathroom. Any less traumatic.

The blood was darker now than it had been the night before it was the only thing Jim had to remind him that last night actually happened.

Oliver Stone: Memoir and Movies
"Stone, Amanda I in my mind have been circling a podcast episode about Oliver Stone probably since about Nineteen ninety-one, which is when I I had some consciousness about the work of one of the most fascinating figures of the last forty years in American cinema. There's a reason we're going to be having an episode conversation about stone today, which is that he has a new memoir that memoir is called chasing the light writing, directing surviving platoon midnight, express scarface Salvador, and the movie game. It's a very interesting book you and I have both read it. We're we're both. In some ways and perhaps frustrated confused devastated in other ways before we get into the book though and before we get into how we're going to talk about the scope, the massive scope, the unbelievable scope of Oliver Stone's career. When I say Oliver, stone, what do you think? Conspiracy Theorist just to be totally honest and filmmaker and. And really and boomer and I think that is going to inflict a lot of the way that I talk about Oliver Stone in his filmography because I am a generation younger I am a child of boomers and I came to Oliver Stone's work and to Oliver Stone's understanding of the world a generation after. He lived at and made it and it was very funny and re watching everything from platoon to to wall. Street to JFK. To realize the way in which those movies shaped, my understanding visual and political about Vietnam, and about JFK and about how we examine America and the government and I am both child of Oliver Stone's world, and maybe because of time in the way, the world has changed a skeptic of Oliver Stone's world at this point, which is just to say on the next generation. I. Think a lot of this will be boomer versus millennial and and that's good. That's how the world should work. Even Oliver Stone would agree with that though maybe not we can talk about it but I don't know what do you think of? Mid already. So many good points I. Think he's an artist to strains credulity while also I think enlivening imaginations he's somebody who is obviously immensely thoughtful and intellectual and spiritual and simultaneously feels like he completely out of control and trying to break the boundaries and stretch the concept of the truth all the time, and so he's just a a generational paradoxical figure. He's a he's a person who I think it makes immensely entertaining movies that. Don't always stand up to deep examination, and so I think he is he is an title baby-boomer figure in that way and that he is there's a certitude about his mission and there's an earnestness in insincerity to the message that he's trying to send. But also underlying that is perhaps a kind of cynicism and a skepticism about what he should be doing with his time versus what he's actually doing with his time, and so I you know I find, I've always found him to be fascinating maybe not as a human being per se but at least the stories that he tries to tell. I was GonNa say I do think he's interesting as a filmmaker and what else was a person and? We're GONNA talk about all the different ways in which Oliver Stone like quote breaks the rules but I have been thinking a lot as I have been reading his book, which is a fantastic read I will just say that the guy can write. and. Have also been revisiting his work that you and I are trained to as much as we can released I wasn't college train a separate the artist in the art the art has to stand on its own can't complete the filmmaker and the and the work, and you also need to understand that the work and the intention are possibly separate as well and Oliver Stone just makes massive all of that, and he makes a mess of that in his actual art and he makes a mess of that in the life that he lives and in the interviews that he gives and the work that he pursues and. To me that's exciting because it opens up conversation to talk about what can you take seriously and what is cynical and what is sincere and what is true and what is not true and how are we like an who is responsible, which is at least a different way to talk about art. So you know I give him that even though I don't agree with where I think Oliver Stone comes down on those the answers to those questions but even there, I'm just guessing. Well I, think if you look at the book, you certainly are looking at the man or at least the the self perception of the man, and so we'll talk a lot about him and his story in his life and and his the way he is capturing his own life on the page which I I agree I mean he's just in case you didn't know this is an Oscar winning screenwriter. This is one of the great writers of the last forty years is also as a person who didn't just write his own films but road scarface and Conan the barbarian and a number of other films over the years. So he knows what he's doing on the page, but he is also somebody who. If you look it the political thought not like a straight line where there is a left and a right. But if you look at it like a wheel like a circle, and if you go too far from one side of the circle to the other you can land. You may think you are liberal person and find yourself with right wing ideology or libertarian ideology and reverse can also be true and I think one of the reasons it's really hard to unpack not just what Oliver Stone says in interviews or what he even. Portrays in his documentaries but even when he puts in his films is it feels like he's constantly running around that track that circle of political thought and so he's actually a perfect figure for this moment where there is this desperation to find art that coincides with our political ideology or our sense of what the world should look like and as you said, Oliver makes a mess of that he really. is trying to he's contradicting himself in real time. He's contradicting the sensibilities of that kind of baby boomer antiwar mentality. But on the other hand, he's like an Avatar spirit animal of truth for certain kind of humanism and that sounds really kind of haughty. But I I think he really wants to representational person who is thinking about putting people before government business political structures, and it's complicated right? Because he's A. Essentially a wealthy well to do white man who was born in the immediate aftermath of World War. Two, and so he had so much opportunity to do the things that he wanted to do in a way that other people don't. So he's not he's just not a tidy figure for that pursuit of humanism. It's interesting that you said he's putting people in front of institutions and ideas and governments because I think that's true. But it's usually one percent, and if you look at his entire his filmography and and really I, think even if you look at how he says. A lot of political issues, but it's it's not. The, greater good. It's usually focused on one character who is often a man and quite often a white man it is and it is understanding history through a single person's experience. So it's like it's almost I. mean he certainly subscribes to a great man theory of history but at the same time as also reversing, which is like the the the one person's experience of history, which can be a really exhilarating in certain films that we'll talk about and really really misguided I find or not even misguided but just doesn't work and isn't illuminating and the way that he thinks it is. IN IN CERTAIN Aspects, and then also in certain cases, it can just be about himself and it is I. The thing that makes his. His memoir. So electric is that it really is self mythology and he is really trying to understand himself and trying to pin down that constantly moving wheel as you said simultaneously and and I really admire having access to that. I obviously read a lot of celebrity junk and and memoirs and. Interested in trying to have access to people's ideas and thoughts and understand their characters and most people won't give it up in that way and won't share and won't be as open and Massey at as as Oliver. Stone is and that's true of the book and that's true of politics for sure and it's it's making. The great man theory is is really relevant to this conversation not just because of the book not because of the film's but because it's a little bit unclear, it's a sort of a chicken and the egg or the proposition with him. Does he subscribe to those theories because we read about in this book, He is interested in the dramatic pursuit. He has a pretty clear understanding literally of how to tell a strong story and that story is usually through a homer like figure or a a habit like figure somebody who is you know on on an indomitable quest to achieve something that seems impossible he's he's really passionate about this and you know again, there is something kind of haughty about this but also he just he seems to come to a very sincerely and so he uses Jim. Garrison in. J. F. K. or he uses Jim Morrison in the doors or he uses Ron. Kovic. In born on the fourth of July as these avatars as these great men who are seeking to achieve something that no one else could even perceive as possible and I think Oliver Stone sees himself in a very similar fashion. He sees himself as this well, to do white guy who volunteer volunteers for the Vietnam War to explode his privilege and to understand the world in a hopefully deeper way,

"Jim. Morrison just lit a cigarette with the roach of this feeding joy when he saw the breaking news report on TV. As soon as he saw the face of Jimi Hendrix and the caption nineteen, forty, two to nineteen seventy, he stubbed out the grass and stumbled forward to turn the volume up on the TV set. He already couldn't believe what he was seeing, but then it was Florida teepee. A guy could see a lot of unbelievable things Florida. Jimmy seen a lot of himself on TV recent months more than he wanted. The Square Floridians he had sought to escape from sought sanctuary from long ago spoke to reporters in holier than that towns, kids teenagers regressing into the dismissive ways of an older generation distancing themselves from the incident. They couldn't even bring themselves to describe what had happened on that stage. It was just the incident. Local and state politicians took to their microphones to condemn Previti preach morality when you're strange people come out in the rain. The whole lot of them would have tired and Fed Jim Morrison if they could have gotten away with dragged out into the street chateaux and aired it live on black and white TV sets throughout the nation. But. Now, time for something completely different the press had a new rockstar to fill. Another musician that they could use to strike sweeping social posts about decency. The ABC Acre had interrupted. Regularly scheduled programing to make a special announcement. Jimi Hendrix was dead. The black and white TV flickered the picture and focus but the edges fuzzy and speckled Jimmy's frozen smiling face the anchor cold and composed cut to the chase. Jimi Hendrix experiences over the acid rock musician died today London hospital apparently from an overdose of drugs. Hendrix gone. Guy Was lightyears beyond anyone else an only twenty seven dislike. Brian Jones year before same ripe young. Age. That was strange. Jim Try to remember the last time he had seen me. May Have in Montreal in Jim tried to hijack stage for a second time. Jimmy denied. All denied Janice Dennis Wilson the whole fucking city of Miami. The prosecuting attorney used the conservative public perception of Jim as an opportunity to ridicule during cross examination, get to cop to lewd and lascivious behavior like when he got on his knees and the Miami Stage pretended to give Robbie head while he solo. The tomb was onto them. He was on them all. Smog attorney you've seen robby Krieger do that solo thousands of times haven't you? Jim could be. SMUG attorney but you get down on your knees to study the intricate Finger Work Jim. Well, he gets better all the time. He was quick witted. He was sparked not like everybody said that he was dom he could handle thinks the Beatles said this Kinda shit all the time of press conferences and they get compared to the Marx brothers. But not gem he was stepped over it was the way you wanted. Twenty one year old photographer. David. Levine took stand to talk about the underexposed photos he captured the night of the Miami show the prosecuting attorney didn't think there were enough to work with and he wasn't wrong Levin had photos of Jim with his hands down his pants and photos of Jim holding the lamb in his arms and laughing. But there was no smoking gun shot even gyms lawyer near. That already he had contacted Levin before the trial and bought a handful of photos to see what the fuss was about not much us from the looks of it but the prosecuting attorney needed more from. Levin. So when the photos didn't do the trick gasoline about the master batory emotions that Jim made on stage asked them to demonstrate for the jerk exactly what gym did with his hand his Raj? Levin clenched fist and started to work as rhys down near his belt buckle lefty Lucy radio tiny the motion was slow. It was subtle and it was instantly identifiable. Levin blush a few of the jurors gasped hands covered gaping mouths. One of them smirk lean kept making the motion and looked over at Jim, JIM raises eyebrows up and down nostrils flare and silently mouth. Ou. General Direction. When the jury returned to the Dade County courthouse, their verdict was swift as the trial was sluggish. Guilty of open profanity. Guilty of indecent exposure both misdemeanors. On September twentieth. Nineteen seventy a sentence came down six months hard labour five, hundred dollar fine. Jim Morrison was given the right to appeal which many could walk away from this harsh reality and try to come up with a new game plan. But things would just get even more complicated he was only delaying the inevitable pretending to think about an appeals process when life and fantasy would both get in the way he would have himself convinced. He wasn't going to jail, and then he convinced himself that it wasn't his kid when Patricia confronted him one day to say that she was pregnant. There would be more fights more outbursts, more insane attempts to build a new reality. and. There will be blood. I'm Jay Brennan. Twenty seven.

"Ray. Ravi and John Surveyed the damage at the dinner key auditorium in Miami. A lot take. The stage was in pieces busted beyond repair. One half of the rookie old seaplane hangar had collapsed in on the other half there was debris everywhere beer bottles and wine bottles strewn across the floor. Bras wear shirts pants. He could practically smell. The broken promises some kind of fantastical liberation. It hung in the Muggy, still air along with the smell of body odor of red wine of Jack Daniels lambswool. It was the morning after the Miami show, and the doors were staring down the cold light of day. They had a bigger problem than a broken stage and that problem was once again nowhere to be found. Jim Matt Build. He did the Miami thing, and then left for the Jamaica thing. The vacation he had promised Pam the calm before the storm of the rest of the store, the band's biggest tour ever. Now, the looked like there wouldn't be any tour not now, maybe not ever. Jim fucked it all up high on that living theatre shed. He thought he was leading a bunch of attentive students down the primrose path thought he was giving intimate performance to a higher audience at that didn't happen at all didn't happen the way Jim at imagined whole thing was far less romantic and idealistic than Jim Thought it was. Jim Yelled at berated the he repeated words over and over again like he wasn't able to think of any other words in the English language. Besides. Are you ready? Are you. Ready, for what Mars, Ray Robbie John wanted to know so. Do the kids the pack the Dinner Key Auditorium? They were ready for a rock and roll show, and instead they got some glorified performance are. And now the next morning the doors were picking up the pieces literally. The dinner key auditorium was originally one of Pan's airplane hangars, a seaplane base exact that was converted into an exhibition hall in an Auditorium. In the Early Nineteen Fifties, the auditorium was host to graduations, parties and political rallies, but despite its aviation routes was known locally as now it was a band, its smell it was decaying double time home to transients in a word replace was a mass. In Jim was a mess the night before he really gave it to the crowd. He told them they're idiots told him they were slaves. Since they did what they were told, he told them they were all going to sheep and the drive the point home the lamb in his arms. He took cheap shots at Florida Sang, the praises of Los Angeles, he big time, and they weren't hip enough or liberated not he waxed poetic. He wasn't the Florida Man Self Hollywood gutter trash should merely liberated himself from the sunshine state swamp. At one point during the show while Robbie was taking guitar, so Jim dropped to his knees, right frontal, stuck out his tongue. Pretend to give head Robbie's Qatar. He did unbuckle his belt buckle. He did pull zipper of his pants down. He did ask the crowd if they wanted to see if they wanted to take out the crawling king snake. And now there were reports the and exposed himself. Twelve thousand bands doesn't matter what he thought he was doing or what he thought he was. This was the reality. The show was ridiculously oversold, and there were lots of conflicting reports as to what actually happened. It all happened so fast the crowd and surged chimps insistence. He Egged them on just like he always did just again at the singer Bowl. It was hot humid as fuck. It could have been a massive assassination mass hysteria illusion, or maybe it had been real. Maybe he had really done it. Ray Robinson John wouldn't put it past them. Jim Morrison was GonNa, whip out his Dick Jim. Morrison was gonNA without a stick. I people pushed their way onto the stage. Then they were pushing each other on the stage, and then Jim started to push anyone who brushed up against the live between the audience, and the band had been raced full audience participation prelude to Orion. No, how no way! Jim Pushed more pupil he thought one of them was a call, and then he hoped it had been a cop. Kids ran into him, almost knocked him over. No one gave a ship that he was Jim. Morrison US just another body. Just in the way Jim kept shoving Jim. Shove the wrong guy and the guy twice. Jim Size with him head over heels since the audience. It was around that time. The promoter pulled the plugs of the wall. Shut it off down. The music stopped the house lights came on the audience, reeled and screamed and saw the whole scene in a different light. Jim Picked himself up off the floor and he was over. There were reports the gym and tossed cops around on stage before the plug was pulled after he had repeatedly shouted obscenities into the microphone, and as some claimed exposed himself the Miami Herald called the cops he saw happening and didn't do anything about it, but there had been a sense that night that a real riot could take place at the cops had actually gotten involved. The next morning as the doors saw the future of their tour in the dirty aftermath of its first show, Miami officials question why this has been allowed to happen in the first place, the president of the Crime Commission of Greater Miami insisted that grand jury investigation be launched to look into Jim Saprissa exposure. A few days later Jim was officially charged in the warm issued for his arrest, he was being charged with one felony, lewd, lascivious behavior and three misdemeanors, indecent exposure, open, profanity and drunkenness. They said he whipped it out, tossed it around shook, grabbed it in his hand to get a couple of quick jerks. The Miami police chief was ready to make an example chores, and even if he was local boy, make good. He may be the Florida man and spirit, but he wasn't Florida's anymore. He was so loud mouth Hollywood big timer. Who told the audience that he he got smart when he left Florida and headed West. To, good for them like the sun shone on his ass in his ASSALAAM. The chief was about to kind of any breaks. He will personally see to it that Jim Sydney cell in Raeford prison for over seven years, Jim would get fat bitter in jail. They would throw the book at him. Maximum sentence for maximum asshole. Only problem was Jim Morrison wasn't anywhere near Florida. Ray Robbie John Could told you that they knew it. The morning after Miami and the authorities would all catch on wheel soon. Jim Was Far Away Jamaica about to embark upon the kind of head trip. That would really make him fear for his life.

And Pam argued so much. That Jim decided to go alone, but it wasn't just Pam Jim needed a minute. decompress away from the rest of the band. Jim was alone at his rented house on the beach in Jamaica. Not entirely alone as the several housekeepers who were there with him, one of them presented Jim with his stately, join held in his hand, a monstrous spliff. He had ever seen.

He'd never been physical with her in this way. This was different in. It scared the shit out of her. Jim Held Rosanna tight against his bare chest. You really weren't sure walked around. God's gift to chess assumed everyone wanted a good long look. He held her type by wrist. Her arm twisted around to her back in her back, pulled into his chest. He had grabbed her carving knife from her kitchen in a fit of rage, and before she knew it, she was all twisted up with a cold sharp curving. Implement tight against her.

He had planted the seed. Jim felt the carving knife pressing slightly into Roseanne as belly, and he thought about it for a moment thought about going through with it, cutting slicing gutting her. It was partially the drugs. He couldn't even remember all the things he had chewed and swallowed and smoke that and partially the Shit Jimbo. It's him harshly Jim. Zone delusion.

Make It fuck right off. When they handed out diplomas that Spring in one, thousand, nine, hundred sixty five. Jim was far away from the UCLA campus hit successfully decamped Venice beach. You became part of the scenery human driftwood. He crashed on the rooftop of the apartment building where his friend. Jacob lived raided nearby avocado and orange trees for sustenance. Let the sun big is bare chest and lighten up his long hair. Venice, a uniquely Californian stretch of sand on the west side of La is known for its bipolar blend of drug-fuelled counterculture weightlifting muscle culture. The dog town boys, birth skateboard culture in the abandoned backyard pools at Venice in Arnold. Schwarzenegger pumped his way into Hollywood via muscle beaches equipment. But before all that, and after falling into disrepair in the nineteen fifties, the one time slum by the sea was having a bit of a renaissance in the one thousand nine hundred sixty s and Jim Morrison was there. Take it all in from high upon his rooftop perch. The Sun rose and the sunset black smoke drifted from watts from the east and dissipated by the time it reached the coast watts happening on an entirely different planet as far as Jim, Morrison was concert. There on the roof he was above it all above his shitty grades and film school above the rejection above his parents who disapproved of every movie made. Each morning he would stand on the roof for fourteen Westminster Avenue a few pounds lighter than the day before and reinvent himself again. In Venice could be himself whatever that was and he could shoe on D. unsupervised. He crushed LSD tabs between his teeth. outfielder snacks on sunflower seeds. It was everywhere in Venice Beach Housley white lightning tabs were passed around the boardwalk. Acid was an over the counter treat of and head shops. But over the counter acid in free for all white lightning was not enough for Jim. He needed more. He wanted right from the source. He wanted to squeeze that Peyote cactus taste, pure mess gonNA stick his tongue out and freak hot as it sought. That was the trip. He wanted to take the ultimate trim. So it was Jim and Phil hopped into Phil's Red Chevy and headed east desert bound after the incident with the fourteen year old on Hawthorne never back on track. The desert called Jim the heat, the expanse, the cracker and Toke desolation. He heard about ceremonies were native Americans. Shoot Arrows at the peyote cactus to prove their mettle. Jim knew he would prove worthy. He wasn't Jim. Morrison the Military Brat from Florida ever since the moment on the New Mexico highway when he was four Jim was someone different. Surely a peyote trip, the desert would offer more enlightenment on who that person was. Jim returned two days later, but Phil didn't. Jim came back and started telling stories stories about shooting arrows have hey od CACTI with his native American brethren stories about a Latino biker gang the took offence to his girly hair and decided to fuck them up real good, and then he told the story about killing his friend fill. The peyote was so strong. He couldn't tell what was really more who was real anymore. He looked at Phil's face in the moonlight out in the middle of California desert, the wind much colder at night than expected. He looked at Phil's face. It wasn't fill. It was the cop on Hawthorne. It was that cop at the FSU football game. It was his holier than thou film professor. It was his father Captain Marson. The moonlight intensified the night were on the shadows across fills, phase ebbed and flowed free to fuck out. Jim couldn't remember the exact way that he murdered Phil, but remembered burying his body in a river bed, which riverbed which desert which CACTUS which face Phil was wearing at the time. Jim couldn't say. Jim Friends in Venice didn't know what to think. Gyms fantasies came and went sometimes they weren't that far off from reality and other times they were certified godse. They laughed it off. Is Jimmy Jim even if it was strange that human return with Phil Chevy no film. And there was one person though wasn't laughing it off Phil's father. He got wind of Jim Story in his shook him to the core. Phil's father was a lawyer. His son had been missing for days now any of this spring into action. He wasn't about the lead. Some snot nose acid, gobbling authority beating punk leaves child in the wind. He tracked down the fourteen year old girl. The Gym Kissed on Hawthorne and Convinced Depress Sexual Assault Charges, so the gym would have to be brought in for questioning. He gets to the bottom of this and find out where Phil's final resting place was and put his killer Jim Morrison away for good while he was at it. But, almost as soon as the cops put Jim under arrest, Phil appeared dazed, confused back from the dead. But Jim wasn't a murderer. He wasn't a Peyote forager and he sure is. It wasn't getting pummeled by bikers on the side of.

Changes in the Music Industry, Will Their Be Another Beetles?
"I've often said there have been about two songs this year that I think have been really screwed by country radio one of them wholly and one of them was body back because they were so popular people wouldn't let them say popular and I thought for Georgia line in San both got screwed in the factory that is country radio and make get rid of it and I thought this song should have been number one for radio five six seven weeks it. Was that big the song yeah. Did you feel the same way I mean as a writer. You hope something like that would happen and you have a lot of hits you feel different about this one. No it felt it felt very impactful tactful and and it's interesting the tricky thing is it just went up really quick because the momentum of them and then how big it was so it it was very impactful but it kind of like came in then went you know what I mean and the two quickly yeah it has it has a life after that like because of the type of song it is and the artists that they are but but yeah I mean I think it should have been four or five weeks at least don't chest killing the the culture of country music and the fact that songs come and go so fast that when we were kids songs in general to these countries format they would last for eight nine weeks and they became anthems and we think think of our life because of these songs remember where we were and now gone no absolutely I mean it seems like the disconnects I mean to be extreme about about a buddy who is my mentor told me back in the day the DJ's would show up at their record collection and that's why you play right and now obviously and you you. You're one of the days who seems to play a lot of what you play. I remember driving probably a year and a half ago and hearing you play mayor and early on and go. Oh my gosh you know like before. It was really catching you. Were like really playing that in. Thank you man you've been such a supporter of artists early on but it's a machine and I understand I understand both sides of it understand how it sort of needs to be in this modern time but it doesn't necessarily allow for the context of a the DJ helping decide those things sometimes and then more importantly truly as the fans fan response and if the fans responding let it go you know I agree so much to me. The weird thing is that a song can be number one and then the next day every song doesn't go from being awesome some sucking in twelve hour. No it just gets dropped off all of the playlist and so it's gone and because of that I think inevitable it just so we're not in ten years going to have and again. We're we're never going to have the same we've ever in the history of the world ten years and never the same totally. It's never the same but I I think these songs that just remind like we had songs like I remember hearing Indian outlaw on the radio. Remember hearing smells like Teen Spirit on the radio. I know I I feel myself and know where they were yeah. I know that's going to happen anymore. It's it's a similar thought. If you WANNA go all the way back to like there'll never be another the beatles impart for many reasons but in part that we live in a different world like part of what made the Beatles the Beatles besides the talent was it was there was a mystery. You know you couldn't in just get on instagram and go look at what Paul was doing this morning. You know I could be I didn't but I could be on your answer again and what was bobby doing today and see that and vice versa and whatever there's no mystery and even though you got united just meeting for the first time some of it feels like we already know each other because of the friendships but also social media in life and the overlap and the Moderna not as it were back then there was just everything was like I heard I think that maybe until when the Beatles landed man it was like literally when they landed people were there in mass freaking out because they didn't know what was going on. They didn't really know what they look like in person they wanted to go see it and feel it. You know so that kind of excitement just you can't recreate it. I think options also create that listen. There were three TV channels totally and you're on one of the three TV channels at worst you know twenty five percent of the audience period where we have five hundred channels now totally I mean we're looking at I just as an example that a TV network candidates. Hey what you do the show I hate you should come to the show doesn't feel right. I didn't want to this particular. TV show and then we're like we don't understand like you do the show and you'll have two hundred and fifty thousand people watching. I was like guys not to be Dick but after three million people that listen to my show live and another three million that listen on podcast digitally everyday totally and and back in the day it was ten times that totally like we're losing our. It's such a world of an interstate in cars driving by like. Do you like the right car. Get a like it while it was there yeah it's interesting. The turnover rate for everything just seems a lot quicker and that's you know. It's not just the business in marketing conversation as you know. It's also a creative commerce. Do you think if killing art do you think it's killing art or is it making it better because I do see arguable sides. I'm asking you do you think I think I'm not trying to cop hop out. I think it's a bit of both like it depends on you know everything evolves right so art has to evolve and has to be able to function in that new society. I mean it's like did the computer computer. Kill Art Music Making I don't know it depends if you're a tape machine purest. I love the sound of a great day machine record but I also love the things that I can do the computer to manipulate something. Do you ever see Jim Morrison. Talk about the computer. Probably Seventy Yeah Ebb obviously before he died. He was doing an interview and he was like you know what the future in a blew me away like you know the future music is I think he's talking about in the seventies and he's by the way for those was listening. Jim Morrison's the doors very famous. I died way early and he was like it's GonNa be. It's computers totally in the seventies he he was saying that he was probably more spot on then he could have ever imagined because as you well know there's a sector of music that is almost specific vic. Everything is the computer you know. It's not like country music. Typically involves lies live instrumentation still and it's becoming more prevalent again in pop but with a lot of dance music it's it's like everything is literally in the computer and to me. That's not a better or worse or it's just a different way of doing it's like do you. Can you still be created within those confines. You know so we would have songs songs predict what these thirteen year olds have. What will they be able to get in the art art world and go you know this really reminds their snapchat story I well? That's the interesting thing about it the that train of thought even though it's logical and get it it goes goes to the thing of where people literally thought we'd be flying in cars right. Now you know when conceptually it's possible we could go by hundred thousand dollar car that flies right but it's not the Co.. It's not commonplace so even though technology's evolving really quickly they're still what people want except as normal formats is moving way less us quickly so songs will exist. I think forever they really will what kind of songs how what length of time as acceptable you know where they where they go shorter. Is it going to be two minutes and they're already going shorter. Are they telling you because again. I'm lucky enough to be in the high level. I see research. What happens is with music is we'll take it and I say we don't pay for it but I get to see the results of we'll take it and have thousands of people listen to the radio songs? They haven't heard you get scores from. 'em Scores too. I mean it's it's sometimes you over. DOUBT IT yourself and I've seen some really great songs not be scored highly in the opposite but it it's data and what we're seeing is that people get bored with anything over about three minutes twenty seconds totally yeah I mean it was pointed out to me that they're speeding things up you know and not only are they showing but they're speeding them up meaning. They'll take a song and I'm telling you doing industry secretive but they'll take it and speed up three percent so the song even moves faster and if you ever hear on the radio like when you play a bag on your computer your but does it seems a little slower. It's because radio plays them a little faster and they want them shorter. Yeah it's interesting man as a writer I mean I I still write stuff that I feel that that hopefully goes without saying that is truly the case but I'm also I have alike business. I have an inclination towards it in there to me. Those aren't necessarily at odds and so I've had this understanding of the reality that in a business sense a song writers were were selling ads on radio station. We are with inside your morning show in the sense of like they want either here you and then hear the ad and come back to here you you are they gonNa hear our song and we're going to keep them on there so they can ultimate here the ad and I'm okay with that. It is what it is. I've chosen to be in the Billboard Business Not Billboard magazine bestselling billboards. I I did not choose to be in the. I'm not trying to paint the Mona Lisa not not degrading our art. I think you can make amazing art in that context but it's just a different thing. It's like like we're not we're not just sitting on our bedrooms writing songs because writing exactly GonNa say and maybe someone who listened to it once were trying to write stuff that means to us it makes us feel stuff but that will reach the masses and so that's the format that we're allowed this to be able to put it on radio to put it on spotify basically either selling ascriptin subscription spotify or are keeping on radio station so they listened to the ad and it's of course needed because you've gotta have the money to do the thing and I'm okay with that. It's just the funny thing when you think about it you now you get angry as a songwriter that right now it's kind of the wild west and you guys are not getting paid what you should be getting with streaming services yeah. It's it's it's very complex situation nation in very frustrating truly and I've been constantly trying to be engaged as much as I can different different ways and I had an interesting conversation with someone the other day who represents a very well known established old school producer in l. a. and they both had invested in spotify and we were talking about some of that stuff and it it was like you know I don't fault spotify specifically like the if I was GonNa Fault anybody more than anything. It's it's truly the legislation that we let the government putting the legislation on us as riders that we have I mean we're literally imagine going. Hey can you come to show in New York and you sign a new contract or whatever it is and they go you want to charge X. amount of dollars but the government says no you can only charge a quarter of that that we're going to regulate that right because we think. Dj's make too much or too monopoly or whatever it is no when you go do a show if you're playing with your band everything you negotiate your rate or whatever that is you know it's like it's it's it's fair market. I can't do that as a writer with two thirds of my income one part of it I can to sink when you get something place film and TV we go we'll negotiate that rate and and they've also through that process realized that half of it should be the records half of it should be for the song right so if someone gives you a ten thousand dollar placement to have your song on some movie or something half of it goes to the record inside half goes to the song but when it comes to mechanical rates when it comes to performance all
