Thanks for tuning in, and now it's time to open the vault. Talk to me now or do you WANNA reschedule? I could give you about ten minutes now. I gotTa Johnny Let's Let's forget. Okay, your your bio says the that you have become the unheralded. I do what later became the standard frigate tourists, hyperbole, or can you cite some instances again fits this. You become the unheralded I to try what later becomes the standard I. think that we talk more about the doors. You know. I think other people other. Sounding like that? Type of stuff, right? Although I, Think Guitar Wise. I was one of the first to do this wide. Thank quite a few guys copied my style because this slide in rocky media. Do you think you're recognized for what you contributed as a tourist? Among guitar players maybe. I, don't think close could Morris most of? Oxley, other three guys really. Scared. That's texture. Cleveland had been. A more. Group I want a couple of things before we get into the doors. Moso new speak records, were you? Decide to make newspeak. At sort of fit in with what I have been doing anyway, I I've been lacking sort of rock jazz. Albums over the past ten years anyway. Like electrical presidents. have him to write for. CISCO, instrumental. Band you're playing with your son. Is that good story? I wish I had dad who had a ban on out starting. Did Your Dad encourage? You're playing in a band, not really know. When he saw discourage it, but he wanted me to become a lawyer or something like that. There are other times where you wish you had become a lawyer. Is this the first ban that that you've gone back playing some yours tunes with. Not Really I've always done some doors. You know. Whatever Matt I. Always. Say. Ten Years Anyway. Let's talk about the movie for a bit. What did you think of a? Straw. For what it is I throw that you know I looked at it though. CORREAL good. Video? There wasn't really enough there to make a real meaningful Hollywood movie out. But. I. Thank enough stuff their. Version. Of the. Well. It looks like looks more like a video. The movie actress Alex. You're pretty nice to. It compared to at least at remains Eric's. Ages scorched thing. Right Oh hey. He decided not to be involved with it at all. It's really easy to not conflict that. You weren't part of the way our troops i. talked to him because I, don't. I decided to be involved I try to make it as. Her become as good as chocolate rate is twenty other way, and now I'm not. into to it. which is pretty weird, because ray has been the one that always wanted to do this movie and I've never wanted to. Cry! We've got all this stuff I fix it Let's go ahead I. Can. Write bails out. Have you talk about it? Much reason. In movie you guys are always pretty much shown looking at Morrison and scowl like is that. Is that what you did over time I? Kinda got the impression watching this movie that it should have been called to Jim Morrison's wretched excesses. You know instead of the doors. Even though you guys are a big part of the ban, obviously you. Basically, they had just had you looking at the guy. That was I'm sure raise me compliant. And we knew that's how it was gonna be because that's what you're seeing. Major attraction I was Hollywood. Movie is Hey this. Crazy guy only with trae, and you know where the doors fans would love to see the other guys and how the songs were mad. Studio and all that they figure well. Let's people the the. Crazy alcohol which. I never wanted to make the movie, but I've I've figured that. People can get some idea of what it was like feodor show. And they can hear you know the songs some. Some nice visuals foot. That's not. Going to make this movie anyway one way or the other without all-star with us today I have your permission. To use the song they did. Thing that could have done something like the rose. More. Live? Take some of the sauce that we didn't write that. We did like back door. Man Can do those. And they can take and ham. Guys write some songs that sort of how like how doors songs? And you know that would be ridiculous. They would do. What's what's the truth about the doors? You were there and you know it as well as anybody I mean. What's the attraction? Why are they still you know? Why is it still popular twenty years later and that's the truth. What really happened? To be very long answer but. I think part of it. We really were not part of the sixties. Strip. Flower power and all that you know we weren't into that. We were either ahead of time or on Italian or something that. I think that's why people relate to us now because. We were sort of different, more psychological, more universal way. We wrote Com. Sound to different than ours down even more like today's found. Because Ray had the base at. Oregon at chase after that point, literary hypnotic thing that were easy for them to play. Sort of like today's sequence. Stuff very hypnotic maybe not danceable. Your dance music today, but I think it has the same effect on people. Lives landlords, they really came from the whole then rather than being about. You know. Local hugs occur trivial had. His. New Book Jim Morrison Dark Star by Dillon Jones, which is kind of a? Picture book more or less, but it is a phrase that I kind of like I wonder. If you think this is accurate, he says you're. Morrison was a pop genius, but an amateur human being. In a way he was way ahead of anybody else human being. And other ways. A retired. Can be a reliable, but that gym that was. The other. Crazy guy that came out, gems dropped more of a trump all the time. He could be the greatest Guy Euronet Hill is which. That was only once that leak. That was enough to give you the other day. So he so he could sustain himself on being nice once in a while. The thing that I thought was really flawed in the movie. Was The you guys made a records about four years and You know obviously couldn't have been going off. Just going nuts all the time because eight records and four years is a lot of product. Now. That's the thing is going Jim was working. He lifts his best. It was never missed a show. Even though the same. Movie, that is always you know later. Anytime. We were worried that he might not make it, but he did, and the reason for that was because that was what he'd lived for. You now flying with. The best. And that's one. We were at our best. All the personal shit aside, only Klein with free. At first with. Grave. Thinking or Andre. Hard. But Applying poetry great. Is it true that you guys talked to eggy pop about joining the band after Kim died? We considered. Get getting other time. After drinking. Could not. Did you find tough to make records after Jim night as far as adores, records and I mean. Pointed but I mean the correct. We've made after Jim Douglas. were. Further voice voice. And that one. Gym I've gone to Paris the three of kept on. You know writing. And, rehearsing the from. The? Gym Jim is that when he didn't come back. Just throw on ahead. Well, we don't wait. It's. Just. put it out, of the doors out. What happened was after to have died. The three of US ended up. Not being able to get along. You know one jim with alive of like the. Feeler perfectly. Like everybody. To have. The perfect balance of personality. Jim Of Josh Balance. Just couldn't get along. It's really a shame that that's not reflected at all in the movie. Yeah. And two hours and fifteen minutes. You could get some of that in there. Maybe cut out one of the drunken binges unfair that. A couple of the things. You feel like the doors of have come to symbolize the sixties in any in any respect. Not Really. Like I say we weren't really across the sixty three or more universal than that. Honestly I think of the sixties I think of office as. Now? Or something like that. You know. Kind of Ireland nominally. Like Salon and anytime for him I don't. Seem to cope pretty well, the attention and the fact. Sure that. You've done about a million interviews since his movie came out, does it ever bother you? You just say Jeez I wish I could put this aside you know, be Robby Krieger repower player and the head of the head of my own band and forget that. I used to think that way. AGO But. I realize that the doors is bigger than any of us. That only happen once in a lifetime and not many people. So you know I don't mind, too. Honor to band. Yeah. I just wonder if. You know if you realize that it's over, and it's been over for like twenty years now. You know as I just wonder if it's tough to to know that you can't go back to that and you can't achieve that again. Like I say. Father me. I don't know I. Don't expect to see that again I don't. Want. Him. To other things. Do you think music. Today is better or worse than when the doors were around or why. Well I hate to blame it on the business, but I don't know where else. I think partly because. You know the whole rock thing got out of hand. Everybody wants to be a rock star, and therefore anybody who has the money and I can become a Rockstar so matter. What how? And talent this becomes. For. The core of AWHILE MUSIC OUT THEIR! Record companies don't know about. Or House of the public. That's a pretty good answer and. And lastly would be the real memory of the people have to Morrison. Well. I'm afraid it'll be of. This movie will eat the way just remember. What might not be that bad. I mean. He could be a lot worse than in the movie. To. Again. He could be a lot nicer guy. which everybody could have either way I knew before the drinking? Nesterov. creding first wrong. Answer? Do! You know be off. All right for. One of the! Be nested VAL kilmer Gupta job. And I mean. Did you ever look at it and thank Jesus Guy We get back together again with the Dow kilmer. Yeah, but people forget that he can imitate him while he wants, but he can't write the songs or participate in the songs. Anyway well, that's what I need I. Appreciate Your taking the time I'm glad we're a chance to talk. Thanks to see the article. Yeah I'm going to drop Linda copy when when it started should be out sometime next week.

It'd be available August fourteenth and You can It's going to be released August fourteenth. Good the robby. Krieger is I was reading down. I know all about the doors and I'm a big fan of the band and yourself. I didn't know you're from Los Angeles. I didn't Know Your Dad was from Los Angeles. You live in Glendale area like we're probably drive past your house on my way to work every day but actually my studios in Glendale but I I grew up like in the Palisades Pacific palisades. Oh you're Los Angelino your parents route here too right. Yeah yeah well. My Mom's from Iowa but She met my dad out here at Usc or somewhere like that and yet my dad grew up in Long Beach Yeah so I'm one of the few people's also from here so he said you mean Dr drew are the only people who are here well in show business. 'cause it's when you're in show business one comes here from somewhere else. Yeah not even in showbusiness all businesses. That seems like that's why the homeless people like out here. It's it's the weather so nice so You grow up in so cow you start a band called the doors or you're part of the doors and nine hundred and sixty five is when you guys come together. You're nineteen at that point. Yeah something like that. Yeah right away you know. It's funny because nineteen used to seem old enough now. It seems like you're nine right like guys used to go fight wars and start bands and stuff. I mean think about the stuff you did at nineteen versus what my kids are going to do it. Nineteen I know in a way though. It's it's the opposite because nowadays. I see these kids Online playing guitar when they're like five three or four or five years old and are shredding man like I didn't start till I was fourteen. No I wish I started when I was five years old. Did you start playing the piano? I believe Yeah I played trump a little bit and piano but not seriously so you know I don't want to make this whole interview about like What was Jim Morrison liked? But I I I saw the movie I loved the movie I read the book. I love the books. One of the few books of red in my entire life really. I mean it's sad but it but it's true but when you saw the movie and when you read the book what were your feelings. Oh Gosh well. I knew the guy that wrote the book. Danny sugarman here is kind of A. He started off as press agent when he was like fifteen years old Just a big fan you know. So he kind of He. Kind of embellish. The book a little bit kind of you know he put his own. Hey put gyms words in his own mouth kind of you know. Jim didn't really talk like that. You know that's how Danny would talk so You know it but you know the overall it was As pretty good book but it You know I would have done a little different in fact. I'm writing one right now. What when can we look forward to that coming out? hopefully by the end of the year So we'll we'll look forward to that we'll have you back when it comes out So for you and in the movie Oliver Stone Movie. What was your general. Take on that well. I was You know I was on the set quite a bit I just wanted to make sure that the the musical parts were correct which they were Oliver Stone did a great job. I think in the concert footage and you know. Val kilmer was amazing. Save up a sang. He Sang like ninety percent of the stuff himself. Yeah he should have won an academy award for that. He he just was. Jim Morrison in that movie to me but was it was he. Jim Morrison to you. Yes on the set. It he wanted. Everybody Call Jim. You know and we did. It was just almost like having Jim. There was it kind of surreal for you. I mean at least it was. It was Especially having a guy playing me right there now I teach. The guy had a play. The Guitar and stuff was pretty funny and teach Jim. I'm guessing to teach him to play like you as well. I mean I mean. He couldn't play. But I mean is like how you would do it yeah. I showed him the proper physicians. You know and positions instead. He wasn't really playing but he effected pretty well. Frank Whaley yeah now. He was great. Everyone everyone was really satisfying in that movie. At the only problem I had with it. Was that it really. Didn't show the true dynamic between the four of us on me it was mostly about GM and has you know praising us and which is you know find for Hollywood movie but you know I'm I'm I'm trying to get another movie. Made Right now about about the early days of the doors. Shield up until like expire hits and then I mean well what was. How long was everyone together? How long did the doors exists before light? My fire sort of blew up probably two years. And that's you guys playing around so cows sunset strip and in all that was there. Did you guys go on the road back then? Or was it all. Soak sunset strip kind of stuff Before light my fire yeah. It was pretty much. La We might have Donde San Francisco a couple of times maybe phoenix you. Know but Yeah that was about. How would you guys draw at like a Gazelle or the whiskey or some place like that pre light? My Fire It kind of got better and better you know when we started out were played at a place called the London fog which was right down the street from the whiskey. Now just west of the whiskey and you know we The reason we got the gigs we. We tried out one night and we had all of our friends from like. Ucla and stuff come down so the patch packed guys amazing okay. You guys had the job right next tonight. Five people there and then it slowly got better and better and pretty soon It was pretty full and then we went to the whiskey and we became like the house band at the whisky so That was that was really cool. Because they've got to play a lot of our heroes and stunts. Yeah who was named some of the guys and gals and bands. He would have been playing with Baghdad. While the first one was van Morrison them band is called them at Gloria and all that stuff and I was pretty cool. We got to all play Gloria on stage together the last night too. Yeah which you guys. You guys covered. Gloria right yeah. Yeah we did. We used to play it on the time So Van Morrison who who else Gosh Buffalo Springfield. Turtles Let's see Otis Redding Lot of people is there. Somebody are some band that you think was forgotten a little bit or maybe underrated like sometimes people say to me. Well what are you thinking I go well? The hollies were one of those bands that had tons of good songs and hits and things like that. But you may not remember them or you may not know that song although songs well you know our heroes were was loves. Arthur Lee and love. You know before before we played at the Whiskey. They were a big big band of the whiskey and everywhere else. Can they play it all and we have to sneak into watch them because we weren't twenty twenty one yet but they were kind of our Our heroes you know. They helped us get signed to Elektra records. Even how old was everybody when you first came together? You're nineteen went about raise. I was the youngest Jim was maybe twenty one. John was a year older than me would have been. Twenty and ray was a little older. He was like twenty eight and So we'll hop all over the place but according to the to the math when Jim Morrison died in in France in Paris. You were twenty five right or thereabouts. Yeah we'll sounds right. What what was. It's a very you know when I was twenty five. I was doing nothing. I hadn't begun anything in life in for you. It was like you'd have this whole career. All these hits all this music all this storing and you're twenty five. What what was your sort of reaction to that. Or what was your thought on it. let's a good question. I mean I didn't think to myself. Oh Shit he's dead. Were you know life is over but You know I was kind of amazed at lasted as long as it. Did you know because Jim was so crazy? And you know you never know. Knew what he was going to do the next day. You know what I'm saying so it was really amazing that we pumped out six album stuff. During that time you know was it was he. Did he seem crazy? A radic eccentric. Like how would you describe him? And then what what his diagnosis be? If he was a kid today. probably bipolar You know maybe manic depression something like that. You know. Most of the time he was great he was fine like when when he was just doing acid or or marijuana or being straight he was the greatest guy ever on me. Just the nicest guy most polite you know. He came from the south so Had really good manners. He could charm the out of anybody you know including your mother but when he started getting back into liquor That's what brought the the bad side out and And we called the Jimbo Jimbo's here lookout was You talk about your mother and her parents. It was always interesting to me that he said his dad or parents were dead. His Dad I think was a rear admiral for the navy. He ever have a discussion with him about that. Did you ever meet his parents had ever come to a show was was there? His mother came to one show. Lost you. Well that's right. I can still hear you. You see me. I can't see but I can hear you. And that's the main thing I'm interested in so you can. You can convey the story up Cam elements so now I see okay Oh it's so yeah One time we were aback in Virginia Doing a show and Jim's mother shows up kind of unannounced you know and band age. Yeah backstage and and Jim wouldn't see her keeper don't letter don't let her in and she was. She was real bitchy shoes going well. This these lights aren't right for my son. I mean you know I should have better lighting in this place you know. She was real Kinda Bossy. I don't know what he saw in her but he was definitely obsessed with her. Well so Jim you're saying the gym was obsessed with his mother. Yeah he had what you call. Oedipus complex well. I wasn't that I think that was spelled out in the end right. Yeah so she'll wait a minute. This is interesting to me. So gyms dance a rear admiral. I mean that's a pretty straight laced gig right. Yeah he actually fired. The first shot at the Gulf of Tonkin really visa is boat was the I took the first shot So in the Vietnam War so everyone was about protesting the Vietnam War of course back then especially and his mom who was married to the Rear Admiral was a little bit of. I Dunno control free perfectionist. There's something wrong with. It seemed like that night. I you know I hadn't met her before that. Ah TO KINDA WEIRD BUT You know I I wondered why Jim I just figured that the reason he said his parents were dead was because he didn't want to embarrass them you know he knew there were very straight laced. Southern you know People are navy people and a Yeah he knew that he was going to be out there doing crazy stuff and he didn't want them to have to be associated with him. You know but then the whole SORTA was. I really. Don't know why he said he could have just said but when you say obsessed with his mom did he talk about her a lot and route he. Yeah all his girlfriend's Kinda looked like area loved red hair you know. His mom had When he would be on acid he said he told me that he would see his mother space in the moon when he would look at the moon and see. His mother's face was are complex relationship to have you know if you've read Freud it's really not it's You know according to Freud. Everybody every kid really is in love with his mother and his totally jealous of his father and kill them all right. So that's where the end came from other. I want to and father. I WANNA kill you. Yeah but in his case he really you really felt that in most most cases it's buried underneath and people don't ever realize that they That they have that oedipus complex but with him. It was right on the surface. I never met ain't going back did When when he would go off on these crazy tangents for lack of a better. I don't WanNa call me crazy tangent. We need to go off in this direction. Did you ever sort of think you know relayed in? Let's stay in our lane. We want to sell some make some music and sell some units. It's never be played on the radio. Like how can we do this? Like come back and join us over here in the world of the Sane Are you talking musically? Yeah like or a review all in now we were all in you know we thought it was coolest thing in the world the end how that you know came out You know to us it was are you know and You know the the bad part was that you know he was He had this self destructive thing going on where where threatened to ruin the band at any moment you know so it was very hard to deal with So much I go ahead night. We actually recorded the end. He had taken so much acid That After working all day and we got the end we did. It would only did two takes really and they cut them together to make one type but So we're all ready to home in on. Jim Goes now come on. Let's keep on you know I'm just feeling good you know and we're all fucking wasted. You know so. We says ow. I Jim come on. Now come back tomorrow. We'll start again so we all left. Jim Left and then later that night he came back he broke into the studio and host. The whole place down with fire retardant And just made a big big mess and Should have gone to jail really but The the guy from electric Didn't press charges and somehow kept him. Kept the whole thing. Quiet you know. Did he wrote on the tape or the takes from day. Not The tapes. Luckily he He it ruined the Harpsichord J. Spray. Down the mixing console just a lot about stuff. So you knew. Did you know how important what you were doing? Or how groundbreaking what you were doing was when you were doing it or not and so did a lecture. And that's the reason why they let him get away with. That shit is when when he went off to. I only know. Well I read the book and I know the movie version of it. When he went off to Paris was there the thought of? He's GonNa come back and we're going to continue to be the doors. Is that or even if it was said did you feel. That wasn't a sad especially but I I definitely planned on. You know. Yeah I knew him. I knew that He lip to be on stage. And you know if he once he came back there was nothing else that would have happened but we would continued and we just did. Ed finished one of their best albums ever and most fun album. Sell a woman So you know he was He would come back. Yeah you said he lived to be on stage but you know in the movie famously. Turned his back to the audience. Did he do that at the beginning in real life? Yeah now beginning is super shy and and You know he ah. He didn't really WANNA be well he must have wanted to be onstage but yeah he wanted to be a poet as what he wants to be and you know. I think he figured rock and roll was one way to get his lyrics out there. Have people hear them? But along the way there he fell in love with being on stage and and being Being the frontman. What was your relationship with being onstage? Sh It's all right. I can hear you okay Mostly I was. I like to hide in the back. You know I was such super shy and You know I I was content just to kind of be one of the band and You know there. There weren't that many guitar hero types back them except for Chuck Berry who I really loved but You Know I. I wasn't much of a singer and So just I just I like to be in the background. You know did In your from L. as we discuss we're talking about Jim Morrison's parents. How did your parents Take this crazy stardom that you had such a. I mean starting I guess. Twenty one pretty much right. Twenty maybe Oh they were into it. They they love it. I was lucky. My parents were very open minded and Of course my dad wanted me to be an engineer like him. He was like a rocket science. Kinda guy at northrop and He'd gone to Ucla and and contact so You know I was. I was actually at Ucla at the time and You know once we started to really popular around La. I just panicked with you. So I didn't tell my dad that I just kind of stopped going to classes I said hey this is what I WANNA do. And once my dad wants one slide. My fire came out. My parents. Were like the proudest happiest parents ever. You know whether they allardice they followed us around Europe and you know they used to come to all the shows they they loved the Everyone met it. Ucla is that correct Pretty much I mean Jim and Ray met at UCLA. You know they were in the film school and I was just in regular UCLA. So I didn't really know them. That will Yet and John Dinsmore went to Valley State Northridge. Oh Cal State Northridge Tonight. I met him in high school. At Uni Heim. Oh yeah that university is that. Yeah and that's in Santa Monica West. La So you guys all come together and you don't have a Bass player which is pretty unique for band. True th-wa The only other. Dan didn't have a bass player that we knew was the seeds. I don't even know the sea. It's another sees. CanNot let me why they are crops. what was their main song Shit I don't know you'd have to tell me what this guy steeds. Sky Sox Never God. It sounds familiar. I know. Oh the human beans some group. I go pretty deep. And some of those sixties like one hit wonders. But I don't know the seeds will. How old are you? I'm fifty five. Okay Yeah Yeah you probably would not because they were. They had like two songs on the radio. And that was it you know. I don't think they were very cool. You should look them up. I don't know if the seeds made it to. You know the Oldie Station. So they have can't seem to make you mine. I guess Oh pushing too hard. Is that a song rushing to? That's ahead Oh yeah oh yeah pushed into home on me too right. Yeah I know. They don't have a base that the guy played just the low end of a keyboard for for the base array have just little channel based thing that he would stick on top of the Oregon and that was pretty close vendor piano base. Had I think eighteen keys or something like that? The cool thing was that you know. It's SORTA gave us our own sound. Because Roy had to play that base with his left hand so he's kind of put it on automatic pilot so the baselines were very repetitive. And kind of hypnotic that kind of gave us a hypnotic quality that a lot of bounce didn't have yeah And now as I listened to push into hard by the sea in my head although Chris you're GonNa have to pull that up but I do hear. I can hear similarities now. I realize that. Yeah that had that that sound to it so when you guys would record did. Was there ever Bass player in their first session? Yeah we always had a bass player on the records mostly except for the first album On the first album we played everything with the Piano Bass and then after afterwards I overdubbed a real base on a couple of the songs like Soul kitchen and twenty century Fox and a couple of other ones back tomorrow. Back to you you play. You played the Anaya over overdubbed later and then there was a guy named Shit what's his name he did. Light my fire. Larry knechtel. There was a studio musician. Type Guy he could play anything and he and he just copied. Exactly what ray played on the Piano Bass I think we have a little bit of pushing too hard by the seeds. Let's see if I can hear that song odd off on. Okay Hi good. That's where all is right in the world. I know that Song I knew it was the seeds. It always sounded very British invasion to me. Yeah but they weren't there from the balance thing down on how all those how you know the Beatles and the British invasion came around it was everyone was copping that sound. Not THE DOORS. The doors now. We actually are our favorite bands. Were from England. You know them nor suspend and Who Else Animals Eric? Burden animals and not to say we copied them. But we we. We like them a lot. We you know we want to be like them. The Beatles had just got here when you guys were getting together right Yeah there'd been a couple of years we've been gone a couple years by them So let's go back then. Let's talk about Light my fire. So that song blew up the band and the good news. Is that a whole bunch of other. Great songs came after that song as well. So you guys were able to obviously sustain it in the movie depicts how the creation of that. Song went down. But you were there. So how did it go down? It was I actually talked to Oliver about that scene. You know and how should be? And of course he didn't really listen to me Yeah I actually wrote the song home one day you know. That was first song I wrote for the doors because up until then you know Jim. This is early on and Jim was the writer he you know. He had about ten songs that he had written early on and ray helped them flesh them out. You know like moonlight drive and Hello I love. You was one that early once Can't remember what else could then at one point. Jim says. Hey you know. We don't have enough originals. Can Cause we've been doing cover songs are sets. You know we play. Gloria you know all all the stones of the day Otis redding stuff and So he says hey. We need more originals. Not Why why do I have to write all the songs you guys writes them so I went home and tried to write and I was the only one that actually didn't but jaw? I said what should I write about? And he told me. Write about something universal something that will go out of style too quick. You know what I'm saying so I said okay. In that case I will write something about Earth air fire or water so I picked fire because I always loved that song by stones. Play with fire. Yeah Good Song. Yeah. There's all there's all that's a good song. And then there's also a song called fire by like our mysterious Arthur Brown mysterious world of Arthur Brown or the world of Arthur Brown. But that was after that my right that was Jimi Hendrix had his fire song to as rice. Right you know I was the first person ever to put the three words. Light my fire together and really nobody'd ever said those three words before so I don't know where that came from but so you went. You went home and you wrote that. Song I did. I did so And I you know up until that point. Our songs were all kind of very simple songs. You know. They're all blues very blues base three chord songs. You know so. I said okay. I'm gonNA write something that's got a lot. A lot of chords Tree a tricky Lousy Turkeys and like my fire doesn't really sound tricky or anything but if you count the number of chords in something like twenty different chords and that song just the intro alone has a about seven towards is that died on that out on route route which goes G G F Five B Flat Eve. A fly a assistant the intro and an actually that wasn't the intro to begin with that was only to get out of the out of the instrumental back to the song and it was actually Paul. Rothschild's idea Paul Rotschild who produced most of our albums He says hey. That's the great part. Let's put it in the beginning. You know as an intro and not only that we use at the very end to to to end the song so it's actually in three places in the song so did they know what you had when you came back. The next day with that song they liked. They liked it a lot. And you know the part. We're talking about which came the intro. You know that was just cords to begin with you know little by little rate put in that box stuff. Ronel took months to come up with the movie. He does in one twenty minutes. You said you gotta go out to the beach off figure this part out so yeah I think they call it artistic license but it's weird artistic license on artistic on an artistic endeavor you know what I mean after. I told them how it went. You know yeah well. I've heard Oliver's pretty headstrong. Yeah yeah he is in fact he what he did was he had a good writer for the movie God what's his name out. Think of an amount but he never used any of it he just wrote himself all the dialogue and stuff is is actually Oliver Stone. Jay Randall. Johnson I'm looking at the bottom of my screen. Yeah Randy Johnson. Yeah Yeah I Well for what it's worth. I love the move. Had No idea. What part of it was accurate in one? Part of it was better. If we around these script believe him well.

And you can go to apple music spotify. Google play Amazon Youtube and check it out The have you been in love with the guitar? Your entire essentially from fourteen on. Yeah exactly My friend had a guitar. Bob Wire was his name. We come barbed wire and he had a little. He had a guitar at his house. And I always used to go over there and I would pick it up them now before that I. I wanted to play trumpet because my friend. Lowering Hughes he played at school. He played the taps. You know. aren't at the time that you never really loved that. Wait a minute. That's not the taps that's the REVEILLE REVEILLE reveille. Yeah they used to play. So I want to Walter Reed Elementary in the San Fernando Valley and I think they would play that over the loud speakers probably recording. You didn't have a guy actually playing no wasn't like Santa Anita cool like we played it every day and he was the best trumpet player school and all that so. I wanted to do that so I took trumpet. Lhasa and stuff never got good enough. Yeah I don't know what you would have done. I guess you could have joined her. Bowel occurred or like. That certainly probably wouldn't be in doors with the with the trumpet. So you guys. All guys all meet essentially. Ucla or most you're going to UCLA. Some of you to say northridge. Actually three of US met at the Maharishi is first meditation meeting and L. A. O'Reilly. Yeah there was like the sprint his brother had gone to India to search for a guru. Right and a talked to all these gurus and and this one guy he loved was Maharishi and and so he he talked my re Shannon coming to La to start the movement. You know in the United States and out so this meeting was at Peter Up Peter. Wallace's parents house in the PALISADES and there may have been ten or fifteen people there an out of those fifteen people. There was many John and ray that later became the doors. That was pretty fortuitous. And was there. Did you guys decide have discussions at that meeting with some music now? Maharishi basically was the speaker. You know he's talking about about the meditation all that and then after the meeting ray comes up to John and he goes. Hey I heard your drummer John Goes Yeah. She's Well we need a drummer my my brothers band skull rick and the Ravens and The drummer just quit so Juwan come and try out you know. And so he says okay. Yeah I and my friend. Here's a guitar player says. Well we don't need a guitar player. 'cause my brother. Plays Guitar so John John and Ray hooked up that way and then John brought me in a little later Three of US showing up at that. One meeting is pretty amazing. I would think well. What are your thoughts on things like that? Do you think that speaks to a higher power or an alternate source in the universe or something or is it all too and definitely something to it It is too many coincidences that happened. for to be just random chance you know what I'm saying. His ever been discussion about replacing. Jim Morrison are was there discussions about replacing. Jim Morrison you mean before he died. No no sorry after I mean after Not at first you know. We actually did two albums as the doors without Jim And there's actually some pretty good stuff on there with Ray is singing not very well but the and and at that point we said she says no. We should try to you. Know we don WANNA. We knew. We couldn't replace Jim. But we gotta do something you know so. We all decided to move to London which we did. Everybody moved to London. And we're going to look for a singer so we looked for A. We had a couple of guys that we looked out. And then after a couple of months. -rageous decided. Hey and the sinking of work. And so he. He went back home and John. And that was it for the doors and re John my state over there and we actually formed this band of the but spans which was pretty cool is is was everyone financially set for life because of all the amazing commercial success or did you guys own publishing and that kind of stuff did you get ripped off by the you. Know the the label we but We're lucky because We had a a girlfriend of ours. That Donna who New This lawyer Abe Summers. And we're also lucky 'cause we only had a three year contract with Elektra so you know about the third year we're pretty. They're doing pretty well with the doors and they wanted to keep us so you know when we signed with them. We signed our publishing away for five grand. And that's what I did back then. You know though as a matter. Of course it's you know you need fucking five grand. You're GonNa do it you know and we were just lucky to get it back You know they signed us back and to do that. We need publishing and they were very good about it. Because a lot of companies wouldn't have done that so you guys do own the publishing. Yes we do so that for ways by the way. Which was Jim's idea because like I said. At First. He was writing a lot of the songs so most of the songs but he says hey man. I wanted to be everybody. Everybody contribute to the writing. And and we're going to split everything for ways because he knew that we wouldn't put up with his shit unless that was the case. Oh so wasn't because he was a humanitarian. It was just that earth I will both. He didn't he really doesn't care about money you know. He honestly did not. Here's one guy that I can say. That really didn't give a shit about money here all his life. He'll lived in motels or his our girls. This house he never had a house did Was Part of Ray's decision to return to the United States without a new singer and sort of a effectively And the doors was that financial. I mean he was okay financially. I mean Yeah Jayme to work. We were not rolling in dough but at that time but It was you know the the main reason to be honest was that his wife. Dorothy was pregnant at the time and she started going nuts. You know out. Some people do at the hormones and stuff and she She really wanted to go back home. And have the baby there and watch you know can't glamour but and at the same time John and I or going offer musically a little bit different direction than Ray Ray wants to be more jazz and we want to be more rock and so it was just. It was kind of a combination of all those things. Did you when you look at people to replace Jim. Was anybody any good or was it one of these things where nobody could ever be could replace him. I mean what was the mindset? What is it is it would. It have never worked I. That's a good question You know the truth is we really didn't even get to try out more than one or two guys before ray decided to break it up You know we thought about Paul McCartney. That'd be great daddy's a Bass player to you know right but Laden to thank she would go for a while at the time the Beatles just bow broken up down right. That would have been great you know. Was there ever an actual conversation with? Paul McCartney no stood you are too hard to get hold of. How does it work? I'm very curious because I always hear a lot a catalog talk like own the catalog or the publishing rights or all that kind of stuff and the doors have so many amazing songs. I feel like They're great soundtracks and movies or needle drops. I guess as a calm and movies and stuff like that. How does it? How does it work is there? A is there monthly check one gets from these entities. If somebody says making a movie I WANNA use it. Put a door song in who somebody contact you. How's IT Work They they might try to contact me but I have to go through our manager. Who now is the guy named just jampal and and then we have a publisher as well guy named Randall. Wixom but the fact is that John Ray and I and the estate of Jim Morrison whose split into two entities one as From his wife Bam who died a couple of years after Jim so her parents are sister. is in charge of that. Then and then the other part of that entity is Jim Sister Anne and his brother. Andy who control one eight I suppose. Sorry sorry. Jim's brother and sister His yeah exactly. Who are they. Older younger I think they were. They were a little older no. Maybe the sister was younger. Can't remember but not not too far apart. You know Andy. Morrison Is kind of a cool guy. He he moved to Hawaii way back in the day. And he's just over there and lives here in La and her son Dylan is Sort of taken over the The catalog stuff for them his What is the relationship? If any with the Jim Morrison's brother and sister do talk you get along via Yeah I mean you know we don't hang out or nothing but You know is mostly at business meetings and stuff. We we see them. That's a good relationship. Because the doors have generated. I'm guessing ended up hundreds of millions of dollars over the years right. Is that an accurate statement. I wish it was that much but I would say maybe eighty at least sna worse. The good thing is it keeps going. It's you know we still get pretty damn good checks every Every Korda busy. So let's you know there's a couple of things about eighty million bucks. One is when you guys were hanging out. Teen Eighty Million Bucks sounded insane the other hand houses in the neighborhood. You grew up. Dan are going for four point. Seven billion dollars now which also sounds utterly insane right. Yeah Yeah I mean you know. I bought this House my house here in in up in West. La Benedict Canyon It was three point two acres bought it for ninety seven thousand dollars back in seventy nine hundred seventy. I think it was and it's It's appreciated a lot. GotTa be worth. I'll be five million bucks. I don't know I mean look I. I bought my first house up. Beechwood Canyon under the Hollywood sign and this was in the mid late nineties and it was three hundred fifty grand so stuff has gone up an insane amount. But we digress. So as far as the doors go Jim dies in nineteen. Seventy I believe. Seventy one of seventy one. Sorry and maybe the doors are and then a great album comes out with so many great. Is You guys do Riders on the storm. Is that the last song that you guys recorded One of the last. I'm not sure if it was the very last but Yeah L. A. Woman riders on the storm. I remember I was in stalling closets in the mid eighties. I was working on a house in. Reseda like a condominium. And it's back when Dj's you know when Dj was a job and they tell you stories and they would talk up a song and riders on the storm had such a long beginning right where so the DJ was just talking all the way through that and he was explaining and again. I was young ish and working installing closets. You know but I was talking about. This is the last song recorded and they added the thunder in the rain to it and Jim. Morrison passed away before the before this came out. I just remember hearing it all back and a real consumable way. 'cause it had the music underneath that had the DJ telling the story. And I remember thinking. Wow how eerie you know to see here the began. That's all you think about. It came. It dropped after Jim. Morrison passed away according to the DJ was the last recording with the doors. But yeah I might have been. It might have been I I know one of the last things we did on. That album was to add the thunder to To the song. And it's funny because that thunder was actually recorded by Bruce Bottleneck. Who was our engineer about ten years before that 'cause Elektra record cease to make these albums of sound effects and the thunder was one of those sound effects so he they had like a Foley Department or something where they had sound facts and he'd have to go out in record that and so that was just in the library right on a real I guess back then now it'd be everyone's sure in everyone's pewter so let's try to figure out sort of adores popularity chart so everything went nuts. Probably after Jim Morrison died but then the eighties where the worst time ever. So people started listening to Durant Iran and proudly little classic rock. But obviously than a resurgence with the the movie the doors where we now I mean. You're you're you get the checks on a quarterly basis. I don't need to know how much they are but what I what I'm curious like. How popular are the doors in two thousand and twenty versus nineteen eighty five? Oh Lot more. I'm more I mean you know in the late seventies and eighties. Thurs were way down on the list. You know We've figured it would just Peter out and stop that that's pretty much how I viewed it you know and The only one that didn't I have to say it was Raymond teric man. He never gave up the ghost. You Talkin up the doors forever. You know he didn't care for it was a guy That a high school with a with no wanted him to speak on the radio for college. Radio station whatever he kept beating that thing and you know always talking about how Jim might not have died. Really you know ages. He was beat beating the horse. The dead horse and you know John. Didn't like that Yeah a lot of people didn't but I have to say it might have kept The thing going You know enough to to the fact. That Danny sugarman was interested enough to write that book. Which later the made the movie. Yeah from kind of made the movie from that book. Well then it's interesting and that here he are. You Know Jim. Dies in seventy one. The band is over in the very early seventies by the time we get from there to the mid later seventies weren't disco at this point now that further away from the doors than the village people disco which was great for the doors. Because you know because there is nothing nothing really good on the radio That that created a space for guys like Jim Ladan and You know Some of these Fm Stations Back then to Play the doors and play. You know stuff you know Bob Dylan. Whatever anything but disco and the trap those coming out right. And then it goes into the horrible eighty s lot horrible eighty stuff a lot of synthesizer and since signing on drums and the opposite music kind of flock of seagulls and all that shit so gets really bad. And then you must be thinking somewhere around eighty six fifteen years. After Jim died this is going to coast to a stop and sooner sooner than later and know I I wasn't playing doorstops. I mean I I was going into jazz and jazz fusion and stuff like that so I'd I hadn't played doors songs price for twenty years And then what happened? Was there sprang up some of these doors tribute bands There's one called krystal ship in which the Guitar Player is now my guitar for us and for a spin and Dave Brock and his group wild child and They were they were starting to really well. You know they were filling up places like Kalinski and even bigger places and so I would go and sit in with them once in a while just for fun and that's God forget how much fun this used to be. You know little by little. I started playing more doors songs in my and my set when I would play out I would do instrumental versions of them and stuff like that and then came. The book is Do You keep in touch with ray and John I would but race dead. Goddamn all right. Forgot he died. When did he pass away like three years ago? I must've heard that sorry. But he was alive. Would you be in touch with him? In fact you know the year two thousand or so. I was Like I said I was doing more doors songs in my set and I started really missing the doing the doors so I called and I said Hey man knowing played some doors songs you know and you know little by little he got into the idea now so we called. John and John didn't WanNa do is now you guys go ahead be the doors on an? I'm done with that. You know and so ray and I you know we. We had this these guys who wanted to sing you know There was this show on. Tv It was called the VH1 storytellers. Yep So we had about ten guys. That would sing. He adores son. Different guys too early. Who ended up playing with ray and I and Guy From Stone Temple pilots and there was really a bunch of good singers From shoot wrestling anyway. Perry Farrell sure. So you know it was starting to look like. Hey maybe maybe now's the time we could replace Jim after thirty years. You know 'cause Yeah obviously nobody was would be as good as but but these guys are very much influenced by Jim you know especially in aspirin especially and that worked out pretty well we ran. I played for probably fifteen years together before he passed away. Yeah I'm looking at Scott. Weiland Stone Temple pilots got passed. Not Too long ago. Did a Scott STAPP did with when John Dinsmore said You guys go out without me. What what was he saying? Was He just saying good locker? Rec- saying fuck you or she's saying I'm tired like what? What do you think that was China of all three? You know he he he and raved and get along anyway and You know he And he had tonight is really bad with this year so he didn't WanNa play loud music so he said You guys go ahead and do it. You know and So we ended up getting for drummer. We got What's his name Stewart Copeland. Oh well not too shabby from the place right Giancana got a little jealous about that is is ray. What kind of guy was ray? I mean did he keep. Did he stay the course his whole life? I mean sort of kind of kind of out there interesting poet. Whatever counterculture guy. I mean we were very very intelligent. Guy You know very smart and He was Very artistic and he had read a lot. You know like Jim too you know. They're both had read every every NICI and all that stuff and But like I say he was older than US. He was like twenty seven. I think when we started and You know he had dorothy. They were pretty much married even not on paper yet but So and Jim actually lived with them for for a while when just after UCLA They have this little two bedroom place in and so he he was living with them. And that's right when we started and Ray Very very different kind of a guy. I think the main thing about ray was. His sense of humor was very very dry sense of humor so that that would get him in trouble. People would take it the wrong way and stuff but the funny thing was when when you know when Jim was around. Ray was kind of his personality. Which is super strong personality? Type Bay was held in check by Jim so we never really saw the real ray until Jim had passed on. And what was the real like I said type? A personality You know very bossy. Very you know he Total confidence in himself even though they're not much reason to at some point but You know so when he came home you know from England When John Nine worse with stayed there he came home and he formed another doors essentially banned. I forget what it was called but they were horrible. You know and he kept telling John and Iowa we're going to be the next door shuts no worries. Don't worry about that. We're going to be the number one band of the country and that lasted for about six months. Yeah well it I I mean I guess could go any other way. I know it could but I mean. Isn't this always kind of the store? I mean you guys relatively seemed to have gotten on or able to sort of have your post doors live better than so many other bands out there that have had so much difficulty tragedy. I mean it. It's so baked into just about every ban where people are talking anymore. You guys had. We had our problems believe may have. Maybe you didn't hear about the lawsuit. John John Sued Right Ni- for using the name. Oh that's right that's right. Yeah what was John? I look I don't want to speak ill the dead but he he just he still alive raised. I'm sorry jumped up now. Some people are worse job a hosting Jim ladd. Is Jim leads still alive. He's going to pissed if he here since God Damn. It was probably listening to him when he was telling me about writers on the storm. All right yeah. I just woke up in the ceremonial. Gm Lamp Yeah Yeah famous DJ so cow probably came et and then Kahlo S. I don't I don't remember I think it was L. O. S. and then he moved to wasn't K. K. Roy was K rock for a while Anyway he was like he. He was our biggest span. The doors were his thing and he loved deep purple on stuff but He loves the doors and You never got to meet Jim. Unfortunately but but he was our our biggest fan and still is he. He plays doors more than anybody. What's what's your do you have a favorite door song. Oh Gosh not really Lately lately it's been L. A. Woman and Do you ever find yourself listening to the doors Now because I play the stuff so much why. If you're the only reason I listened to it and say wait a minute. How did I do that guitar? Part on such and such so I'll go back and check it out. Does it feel like it was just a different life. I mean does it now feels like it was just yesterday because I said I played the stuff so much still that even though I didn't play it for twenty five years The minute I started back up again.

Well I had a you know. I had a weird relationship with music because I liked guys like Graham Parker and John Hiatt and The pretenders in bands like that when I was in high school a little less of the REO speedwagon against and led Zeppelin's. And I I was a little less of the pop mainstream rock and a little more. I didn't know anyone else was listening to Graham Parker. John Hiatt when I was when I was you know. Fifteen or sixteen. Or even like an Elvis Costello. What Guitar Sixty Les Paul Summers? Wow these around. What's that guitar worth? I would hate to say but it's gotTa be you know.

Thanks for tuning in. Thanks for sharing. I love that about you. Right gene aggrandize. Right Handball Brian. The Boys He'd Yeah Rob was producer on that film executive producer of So I married an axe murderer even filmed but the farce that are good are fantastic because it makes it clear that thought nightly as smart as yeah. Yeah a lot of laughs in that Film and I would take that was like a relationship with a crazy person but great love making and then go out on arguments it but I would take that six months over just a fair to midland relationship. Loves a huge? Naw Game Yeah Yeah. He's produced a lot of really interesting films and has a lot to say about Wellness and Your immune system which I keep Now thinking about when it comes to this Covert nineteen business. We're dealing with so we'll get into that some interesting stuff. He's bringing to the table I was thinking I was talking to Chris About Gina Grad and Nancy Grace. And we don't have to step right into it but it's been too long for me. Let's he's had ten minutes. I know she's had some thoughts about Carol. Baskin Joe Exotic from Tiger King. I don't know what else he's been spouting off about lately. Well I I hope that we have a a clip. We can play but we don't need to get to it immediately called. I was watching real time with bill. Maher over the weekend and you know I realized we seem to be in different places a lot of time but we do land in the same. We come at things from different directions. What we we land in the same place a lot on a lot of societal things like blame China and or Hey News stop scaring the shit out of everybody all the time. You're freaking out. And he finished his show last week he finished it with a kind of a blame. China Angle and this week. He ended with a hey news. Stop Stop freaking everyone out but the thing that was funny about that is. I put together this sort of news. Stop freaking everyone out little montage a couple of weeks before. We just never really had a chance to play. It's Chris had been sitting on it. I think from the Saturday before when I was just watching. Msnbc the weekend. I think it's called weekend live. I can't I can't recall anyway. They're weekend show and it was just that doom and gloom and now there's information fine and then there's information that's scary information but it's still information like you know what you're GonNa do. Your doctor tells Bryan. You've got a brain tumor knits. It's inoperable stealth Gary but that that doesn't drop book right. When he says it and shine a flashlight under his chin. He just gives you the information in my thing is. There's enough scary information out there that we don't have to cap it. I can say. Hey Brian you have a brain tumor and then I don't have to pause and go things will never be the same again. I can just say you hi. This is changed forever so I think why. Don't we play bill? We'll we'll play a bills. I for some reason and in it. I guess it doesn't matter if we play mind I are bills but this was bill and I disagree with many of the things he says but I disagree but I do agree with many things. He says which is which is fine. I don't know why is that allow. Well you'd be an idiot it if you if agreed with everything that Bill. Maher said that wouldn't benefit you but if you disagreed with everything he said that that would not benefit you either. So why not? Just pick and choose those things. Why would you have to completely throw the bill? Maher out with the bathwater. Or why get into his tent in and listen to a Scottsdale on everything. Listen to him on some things and do that with everybody. The philosophy for life man away. Yeah all right so Let's see well. We'll play his it. Chris chopped it up a little bit. Because I think it was six minutes long or something but you get the idea here. We go and finally new rule. Now that we're starting to see some hope in all this. Don't hope shame me. You know the problem with nonstop gloom and doom to give trump the chance to play the optimist and optimists tend to win American elections last month. The Washington Post ran the headline. It feels like a war zone with this picture. This is not a war zone. This is a man with a box of eggs and I've never seen a war zone with this much bacon or how about this one horrifying simulation reveals the dangers of jogging during the corona virus. Pandemic look this virus is easy to catch. But if you can't avoid jogging you can't outrun much two weeks ago inside edition. Said seventy-six thousand in the world had died so some are making comparisons to the apocalypse. The apocalypse really because most of us are sitting at home. Smoking delivery we'd and binge watching a show about a zookeeper another reason times headline was it's terrifying. Billions more out of work. What the fuck is. It's terrifying doing a headline granted. It's a quote but who were they quoting trump Stephen King. No they're quoting an event planner in north Hollywood no offence to the event planners the world. It's it's amazing what you can do with. Pine cones and silver spray paint. But why are you in my headline? How about this? Just tell me? Millions are out of work without the flashlight under the chin. And I'll decide how I feel about it. The media also seems obsessed with finding young people who've died of cove nineteen the Washington Post. Is there seven hundred and fifty nine under fifty years old horrible? Of course then I looked up. How many under fifty died of the flu last year? Almost three thousand. So all this misery from distancing did some good. Can I be happy about that? Death is terrible of course no matter how it comes. I'm against it and I don't care who knows it but giving a proper perspective isn't a cover up of the truth is the truth. Sudden dramatic deaths like plane crashes shark attacks tornadoes mass shootings terrorism. Awful as they are kill far less than seasonal flu or even even hospital acquired infections may very well kill more than corona virus. Ninety nine thousand of them last year fifty thousand die of nephritis every year. I don't even know what that is. We need the news to calm down and treat us like adults. Trump calls you fake news. Don't make him be right. The Great Elmar the sometimes Great Bill Maher. Yeah it's and also again. You're going to hurt your brand. I think news wise if you go full doom and gloom all the time because I am now sort of impervious to the real doom and gloom because all I here's doom and gloom so sure what what's what the real doom are under react. When they're Israel doom and gloom does a chicken little effect. You say the sky's falling enough times. No one's GonNa believe you cry wolf. How many more fables make them up with? Nephritis is a kidney infection without check your Jewish rhys man always did the little the little hand paper. I'll play you play you Chris. My minus three minutes. So it's a little bit long but just play the first like twenty five seconds of the one I was looking at a week and a half ago that that sorta captured this as well. It it it look. It bothers me when they the proclamation of things may never be the same again. And that's what we'll hear with Nicole Wallace on MSNBC an entire country holding its collective breath as we wonder if we'll ever gather again to worship to celebrate to grieve to eat together to learn to work to take a movie a play or did cheer on our favorite sports teams right now. Thousands of Americans are grieving. The loss of loved ones and millions are worried about loss. Jobs lost savings families separated children not in school and for many Americans. It's the great unknown about when or whether a return to normal around the corner the causes the most anxiety west. I'm not worried about whether we're getting together ever again or you know. Everything's I think like they bumped my transam race at Laguna Seca. And I WANNA know if we're doing in August or September does the. That's my big worry. Christie's a little more on the will ever be normal again page and we have the conversation probably a couple of times over the last few days which is like like. She's like I don't do you think this is having a birthday party this year. Like September twentieth. Yeah I think she'll have birthday party this year. Like I don't know there's no there's no way to know but I'm pretty sure and then we're talking about Christmas party and it's usually mid early December and I'm like yeah we know in Christmas. I think we'll parties obviously before. I'm pretty sure we'll have be able to have people over at that point. Maybe we'll put some pure l. out or something if people are freaked out but like I think we'll be okay and she's she's a little more the alarmists side well. I wonder about wiring. Which is if you take a you. Take a pet. And he dropped the pet off at the vet. The pet thinks it's going to live at the vet doesn't it doesn't have this thing where it has a contacts where you go. Oh I'll be home in nine hours or whatever it is or the following morning so the thing that the thing that would freak so if you could explain to a parent I'm dropping you off at the vet you're getting your nails trimmed there's something or your butthole expressed or whatever you're doing and then tomorrow morning. I'm going to pick you up. Your pet would be in a much different sense than it would be forever and we are now thinking a little more like pats but if the news is going to keep feeding the forever then that's going to get planted in our in our head. I don't I don't have any thoughts about forever but if you start your newscast I will. We ever be the same again now. Having to think about it right and and like you talk about with pets. This is exactly like kids. You drop a kid off at school the first day they don't know when they're coming home you have to sell them and so we're being when you say. Bill Maher said you know. It's like adults in some ways. It's like we're being treated like we have the worst parents on the planet. Am I going to pick you up? I don't know how you'd be standing there in the dark waiting for my car. Maybe who's to say? I know the great. Wc fields had it right when he said. I don't WanNa work with kids or pets. Probably for this reason. Hey Mac pat of at the end. I'll skip the middle part of the whole middle. Part of this news. Part was about how? How racist is this virus that they got to the guy at the end? I think his name was Barnacle and he did this whole so they did this whole thing where they were talking about. How racist the virus was and then they were talking about how people of cop killer and Latinos and I don't know if Latinos are people of color anymore. I don't know how it works anymore. But the point is still here on the front lines are are Latinos people of Color. Yes I believe that. Okay so they were. They were On the front lines or the healthcare workers driving trucks or stocking the shelves at the supermarkets. So then they said it's it's not a life or death decision for them. It's a death or death decision for that meaning okay. If they stay home and don't work they die because they need the money if they go out to stock the shelves at the Albertsons they die. So it's death or death and this guy sort of summed it up at the end but he didn't even really sum it up. He just told a horrific story and then made a proclamation. That I can't make sense of but you guys tell me if Mike Barnicle these journalists and he's a social political commentator can tell if you make any sense out of its last statement but here we go. Is that what you're hearing from? Some of the people you encounter on sorry what Nicole more about life and death. It's death and death. He Keratin dear jobs. You risk your life. Don't work and you risk your lives Nicole. Absolutely I mean look at inequity. I'm always been part of the DNA in the United States of America can't be denied but now it jumped off the sidewalk at you. You can go through neighborhoods poor neighborhoods see variety stores hair salons in. You know they're not coming back yesterday. Oddly enough I was at a local hospital here in Boston. I brought a person in for infusion treatments well. The prison was undergoing the infusion treatment I was taking a walk around the facility I bumped into a nurse she's had. Ptsd you can tell. She has ptsd and she told me a story about the night before watching a man die. Seventy four seventy five years of age. She thought the father of a family. The family was watching him as he faded into death. They will watching him on an IPAD. So this is dying alone in America and sadly I think one of the EPA task for this particular period of time we're going through is a lot of people now think that this is no longer in the country. We once thought it was sad. What does that mean? It's no longer the country we once thought it was. I guess daily life has changed so much without in track from August. The Stories Jim. I heard a make America. Great again dog whistle Interesting which is very stealthy on. Msnbc for him to pull that. Oh I don't know I'm kidding. I don't know I was like he said it was so much gravitas. But they don't have to fuck he's talking about And then also like I was talking to drew about it and it's great to say that the nurses have post traumatic stress. Whatever but if you are an er nurse or you work in that ward you just see people die. Every day drew's like those nurses see people die routinely all the time the only thing I can think of is reported a few stories about how some walkouts because they don't want to go and patients room without proper equipment. They don't have the right mask and they're being forced to go and so they're just walking out of hostile and I'm not going in the room. I don't know what to tell you. So when I can think of. But he's like the seventy five year old man had to watch through ipod IPAD. His family's I I that's where we're at all my daughter. He can do that in this in the future and technology I can be there. Well that's a good spin on it all right So it's it's scary buddy or you don't have to go down that road and you can enjoy this time. This was many think of the whole bill. Marr thing all the news I this has been going on for. God knows how many decades I remember there was A. I'm going to try and get this right. I think it was one of Michael. Moore's documentary bowling for Columbine where he had a whole segment of wise the news or maybe it was eleven one of those two. Why is the news trying to freak US out? A whole montage comical was absurd. Like you know your doctor about your dog can kill you. That kind of stuff coming up next and it's funny that two of the most liberal guys in Hollywood Bill Maher and more like wave this flag of like Hey News. I can relax please like I understand you. Keep people coming back after commercial break. But don't freak us out. Well you know as I said new Drew because I've talked about this alignment and drew would say like wise. The news being irresponsible and I would say the news is is generating revenue and and I wouldn't think of it as the news. I would just think of it as a TV show that is trying to generate revenue. But it's it generates revenue differently than ESPN when and Tiger King and EV. Everything has a Jimmy Kimmel. I they have. They have Howard Stern show. Everything has a model to generate revenue. This is their revenue model. The revenue model is the more doom and gloom the scarier. It is the more eyeballs. They get the longer that I ball. Stay and the more sensational the headlines. The better their model works so let's not expect them to deviate from their model sure. That is their model. Everyone has a model with that in mind. It is now up to us now that we're aware there's a model sadly we're going to have to filter everything in a way if you had if anyone had a friend who was a little bit hysterical if anyone who has a kid who's a little bit hysterical and they sort of explained to you. I still do this with Dr Drew. All the time he'd go. I was walking through the airport and a woman came up. Search screaming at me and I wasn't scream at you but I wouldn't. I wouldn't listen to like I did just it for drip calibrate it. I would calibrate it. Yeah I'd go now. She somebody came up to you at the airport and they said some things that you know were negative. But they weren't they didn't run up and start screaming at you. And then at some point he'd go all right well she didn't scream but X Y and Z. And so we're now having to do that with our news so it's up to us to do it. All right. We got We got the game to we have The we got Dawson Smash Up. Which one is this Dawson? Is this the doors? This is the doors touch me. Oh did bring up that there was just a fantastic horn section robby. Krieger wrote this one. I think and it's got a great horn section so all right let's mash it up. Sorry sorry I'm It's not player. We go to the gym. Corolla sat in with the gang at the time of course and I also have to share audio on. Sorry well I can. We can play Rotten tomatoes. You wanted to do that here as it is right now. Here it is a Could I not be good? That a guy that out all right that question for Dawson Dawson when you when you make these backs. Do you draw the trumpet from the cheap trumpet or from the expensive trump but the same song Brian. If you can't tell her six incredible notes to choose from a good time every time the masterpiece somebody tweeted me. Something funny is when we're talking about FLAMENCO guitar and And Charo about Spanish Caravan. Maybe it's that she played the same piece that was played in a doors song. The thing that was interesting as we somehow stumbled onto Charro I then explained that she was angeline and they said well what Charro ever do and you said she was great guitarist right yes another perfect grade magnet thing writings and then spoke to robby. Krieger a half hour half our later. But the clip we showed of Charo playing with the same as Spanish Caravan. Was that what it's called. It might have been either way will I don't know if we if we have a we have the two you have to match okay. Christmas something lot of production in the show. Yeah that's a door. I spoke to join not car. Death more composite he did. Was He alive? He was alive. He wasn't there my friend house-sitting as Robby Krieger. How dens wars don't know not dense more? Sorry Eric? He's been dead for three years. I am forgotten the question. We're all under so much stress with this corona business. I can't You can't write off distress for Corona UNITA right off your mistakes like we're all really stressed in the limit here. Things are in the chaotic. There's there's too many people alive that I think should be dad into many people dead. I don't know her at all right. Should we play the game show? We play some rotten tomatoes. Are we come back with that? Likes go okay. Sorry about that took and the gang makes a all right so before we get before we get into Adams conversation with the legendary Dennis Quaid. We're going to go through some of his filmography ver this week's rotten tomatoes game. That's right folks this week. We're turning the heinous quarantine into a Dennis Quaid routine. Okay we'll begin at the beginning. A breakout role for young. Dennis Quaid one of atoms all time favorite movies from one thousand nine hundred seventy nine breaking away. Love that movie It's a quietly a great sports film even though it doesn't really feel like sports and and it's got a ton of comedy and all right. Well the critics had to love this one so I think it got nominated for best original screenplay or something by right and they loved it and eighty-eight percent really close to ninety one. I'm closer there. Eighty-eight breaking away is certified fresh at ninety four percents. Wow people had it at eight. Yeah we get a mining through of course. Everyone knows Dennis Quaid for his role as a test. Pilot turned astronaut in nineteen eighty. Three's the right stuff. But he played another test pilot for years later. This time a miniaturized one secret experiment goes terribly wrong. Quaid's miniature pilot is injected into a hypochondriac played by Martin Short Willy Escape Nineteen Eighty seven's inner space now. How are Brian and I suppose to know if this was good or we just thought it was good when we were five. Yeah this is my example of a movie. I cannot be objective about it because I saw about eighty seven this twenty five times when I was ten years old. I have no idea this good or not. This was a sleepover movie. Yeah and God. Hey Dennis Quaid has been in so many movies. It's incredible all right I like this. I thought it was a movie. I kind of remember it and But yeah it's impossible to know if you just really liked this movie because you were young or because it was good and look if you saw a really good pixar movie at age nine. You'd love that too and it would be ninety five percent and this had like from what I remember anyway cutting edge qualities at the time I think it was nominated for best special effects or by holly all right so I have no idea and I'm going to go just fresh at sixty three seventy three sixty six inner space fresh at eighty two percents. I'm pleasantly surprised to hear that. Talk about he will have it at sixty five. What's that about? This is kind of crowd pleasing right. Yeah Hey remember back in two thousand eleven when they remade footloose Adams. Dancing with the stars partner. Julianne hough played the lead and Dennis Quaid took over the John. Lithgow real a preacher doesn't want anyone dancing in his town two thousand eleven's footloose or the critics could not have been kind to this. I did not see it. They the the part twos there can be tough. And I didn't hear anything good about it. And is this just a good old fashioned remake or sequel? This is a remake okay Brian is not notched lead so far. So we're going to have to catch up get bold here and catch up now. Everyone's dancing really well. I mean that'd be worth something. I am going to go low at twenty nine higher than you at thirty five. I think I went to high forty. Two ooh footloose fresh really at sixty nine fantastic man. I am hell. I'm really who was the guy who's the key Kevin Bacon role I don't know him. Miles teller maybe. Oh maybe I'll see his name on here. Okay let's go back to the early eighties when Dennis Quaid a young. Dennis Quaid was still trying to find that next big thing. Why not take the lead role in the original blockbuster franchise a great white shark escapes it. C- tank at seaworld and terrorizes the town in Three d from nineteen eighty three jaws. Three right now look this. Brian is as has a pretty stout lead. At this point I made up a lot of points. I think it's pretty pretty slim while does over me but not over. I'm not over Gina but definitely over me so I am going to go with all day whenever see this Mary? I've seen bits and pieces of it on TV? Brian Just Three D. Absolutely not I am going to go with nine. Going low eighteen almost doubled yet a little more. I don't know I can't do math anymore. Thirty seven I think we've got a tight game because Josh three is rotten at ten double digits. Seventeen starts up people mover or final film. Remember the Alamo. What about the Alamo? A big budget star studded historical drama about the two hundred soldiers who took on an army of two thousand Billy Bob Thornton co-stars Davy Crockett and Dennis Quaid Plays General Sam Houston leading the charge for Texas independence. Two thousand four the Alamo. I Have Zero Collection of this movie. It's like a Dean Devlin movie. The poster says you'll never forget and nobody ever since moving. I saw this in the theater I did and I went to high school with Dean Devlin so I am going to be within a percentage points off on this when I made a movie like a point. Seven point four. I went to high school thing them. I didn't know now I saw in the theater and it's like a perfectly serviceable movie. Because it's just the Alamo the movie all the Davy Crockett's and folks like that in so I don't know I can't tell like it it. It seemed perfectly fine to me. I didn't you didn't walk out thinking that you're blown away. It was just like yeah. That's it's a movie an Alamo. I was half joking him. Is this actually a Dean Devlin production? I have no. I thought you thought you knew something now. Now it probably isn't but I. This game is fairly close and I can't think if we were in we were really in the mode where we're like punishing patriotic movies. I'm an four. I'M GONNA say sixty seven. Oh no this is where the GINGAS decided. Because I said thirty nine I split the difference. I said barely rotten fifty five. The Alamo is rotten at twenty nine percents. Oh there's a reason why you've heard this. Oh my God you're saint joy did more than yeah that's crazy. Was that the last one dozen that wasn't cows feeling good about we have our scores. We have our winters. Congratulations TO GINA. Grad. Making the podium. Thank you Paul Brian. You also made the podium sweet Good Adam. Corolla lawn podium during that final spot on the podium store of one four. Ooh ooh follow La la La Gina Grad coming out with something fairly close to that. Is the game that tight though for Grad for second place? Bald Bryan made you take it. Brian takes the win with sixty four. Gene you got one. O Two leasing Adam into that third place spot humiliating right. Let's bring it on all right. Let's see Who's coming up where we'RE GOING TO TALK TO ROB I? I gotTA GET MY PAPERWORK. Rob from boys heads LIKE SPUTNIK. Yes rob freed. We'll talk. Oh you went to undo some. Nancy Grace always down adults. Do we have Nancy talking talking about the tiger king here of course thirty jobs on it's going to hang around with nuns and priests and virgins of course they're all eccentric as you guys are saying that certainly in the a euphemism putting perfume on the pig. Nobody's in this with clean hands but the reality is we're talking about an murder plan. I am so glad somebody has finally talking about this. Because everyone's going there so extent. Drako don't we don't? We love flamboyant clothing but we heading or suspect on our hands. What about the woman whose husband is missing now? Cara Baskin's name in this house. She is evil. She knows exactly what she did. And I intend to prove it to you know. They reopened that case they did. He opened that case now. She's not consider us back per se or a person of interest but I have one addendum to that. They don't consider her suspect yet. No might you know something that they don't know Nancy look. I don't WanNa tell tales out of school. I don't want to go. You know with the flying off the handle hypothesis. Because I'm Nancy Grace and that's not what I do. I do in journalism with integrity. So I'm just going to. I'm just going to real foot off the gas here because I don't WanNa get in any trouble. I think that Carol Baskin killed. Her husband said him to the Tigers through a meat grinder. And it's only a matter of days for PRUITT. Wow but I don't wanNA tell tall tales. I don't WanNa get in any trouble. Speaking of get in trouble. I was coming home today and my son was taken a walk in the neighborhood and he wasn't wearing a mask. Is that problematic or should he think it'd be okay? Well let me just make sure I'm getting this straight out of when you say he wasn't wearing a mask you mean. Obviously he wasn't wearing two masks to Matt No. He wasn't wearing one mask he had no mask on. He was just walking alone in the neighborhood. I get this straight item. You let your child your baby uses you sired this boy in the middle of a pandemic first of all. I can't even get past the fact that you let him walk alone in an Uber Hood. He was allowed or you were holding his hand. Oh I think he had his ear buds on. He's probably listening to a podcast or something like that were you. Were you carrying him? Like an I was coming home from the shop. I didn't I was at the show. My God okay. We'll put a pin in that for a second So he was only wearing the one mask. Yeah just no. He wasn't no no mask. No there's two masked yet you have to wear it. You have to wear at least to mess to walk around inside your own home. Did he have e- add his respirator though he had the gas masks? That you use when you're fogging bomb in an apartment for bugs. No no no. He was just walking regular. Like you wouldn't be able to tell if it was in the middle of a pandemic or not. It was just kind of walking and my misunderstanding. Ma Fault understand. He wasn't wearing a mask he was. He didn't need respite because he put him in one of them big size for human sized Gerbil balls and he just rolled himself home like a cute little hamster and that way he didn't need the mask rat. No this This wasn't like a John Travolta and the boy in the plastic bubble. He was just walking in the street alone with no mask and no respirator. No gloves or know anything. We're just taking a walk and hold on one second. I'm just GonNa make a quick phone. Call a hate to do this while we're talking but just hello. Yes as Nancy Grace Dr Reporter. I'll hold you know this. This is for child protective services. Yep I'll tell him about me already. This not hold on one second. This is hi there. Hi yes I'm talking to a comedian Adam Corolla crank yankers live line love line it was a TV show as well now okay Stand up comedian yet. Now Okay you know I. I know for a fact deform the operators out probably somewhere in India. That's probably why they don't take the lead his son walk around the neighborhood alone mask lifts earlier today. I have him on type. I have the receipts the video I can play for. You know he wasn't no he didn't admit to beat them or no. He didn't admit to Melissa anybody. Okay thanks they are very upset about this Adam. They said they will call me right back all right. Well I'm going to I'm going to move to Max. Go with my son so we can so we can live live free. Oh sure go to Mexico. You know what you're not GonNa do see your wife and daughter again you're GONNA get mixed up on the scene alot cartel like everybody has good intentions. Let's go to Tijuana. Let's go see donkey. Show take my son for the first time. You're not coming back here. You're coming back and one of them. Jeff bags just your head though. Nancy grace thank you very much. Thank you love that all right? Let's see Rob Freed is GONNA be on the line. We'll take a quick break. We'll come right back with Robert. Right after this. The Adam Corolla show salutes the winners of the covert nineteen pandemic for. Us senators sold stocks shortly after a January briefing in the Senate on the corona virus outbreak. They unloaded shares the plummeted in value a month later as the stock market crashed in the face of a global pandemic. We're talking millions and millions of dollars in transactions based on what essentially is insider trading. A secret meeting you and your friends were privy to that. The rest of America had no idea about Kelly Laughlin from Georgia James inhofe from Oklahoma Dianne Feinstein from California and Richard Burr from North Carolina. All four of you are assholes but makes it even worse. Is that while you were selling stocks. You were simultaneously telling the American people that we have nothing to worry about. What's going to happen from this? Most likely nothing as you. Four steadily decreasing the trust the American people have in our government. You're also getting richer increasing your power and playing stupid. Well we're not stupid. If it looks like a duck quacks like a duck and walks like a duck you can go ahead and tell us it's a Mallard but we all know it's a duck duck you we're not. GonNa let you forget Laughlin in Ho Feinstein and Burr. While we're all losers. You are the winners of Kobe. Nineteen nicely presented Dawson. Maller to kind of duck. Though I'd say it's it's not a doc it's Mallard. Oh that was my point stopping cute. You tell us about rob. Reid is with us. Rob Is got so much going on married to Nancy. Travis who plays Tim Allen's wife and last man standing so course I have a connection there with Kevin hench in Rob's also friend of Dr Drew's good to see a rob. Thanks out of my severe. I'm glad to join us. I've been talking almost non-stop about immune system and strengthening the immune system and I've always just sorta said let's do it from the inside out. Let's let's be strong and since every single case and I think there's some overwhelming numbers coming in that. The people that have perished from this virus are people that were compromised from an immune standpoint. Well let's let's be. The opposite of compromise was work on that and give ourselves a great chance as usual. The news is all sort of doom and gloom. Run Serpentine to the mailbox. And here's here's a puppy. Got It and Licked its master and died. But they don't really talk a lot about what we should and could be doing and I know you're a fan of of strengthening the immune system. So why don't you? Why don't you speak to that for a few moments? And then we'll we'll get all of the place after that well you're referring to to Niger. To Nigeria. As a dietary supplement. The scientific name for the ingredient is called nicotinamide. Ride aside nicotinamide. Riboside is a very very exciting an molecule because what it does to the body not the immune system per se but the cells inside the body all the cells inside the body is fairly miraculous. So if you like I could take a few seconds and explain what it does but in essence what it does is. It strengthens the cells themselves. It gives the cells significantly. More energy. Strengthens mcandrew will function. But it also increases a set of enzymes called Parkinson's which are the enzymes size of inside the cells responsible for repairing the damage inside the cells so unlike the immune system itself which attacks problems inside the body from outside the cell there's also there are also mechanisms inside the cell that are responsible for the strength and health and functioning of the cell. True Nigen speaks directly to those functions. And I WANNA get into some of the more official particulars of that. But I wanted to sort of broaden it out at the beginning and just talk about your path and how you got to wear you. Are you started off in the movie industry and we're looking down? I'm looking at is a producer role and Rudy and Boondock boondock saints and many other many many other films in got sort of Ian early and often in it and I wanNA talk about Troy Daffy and in the dock overnight which I. It's one of my all overnight in maybe the kid stays in the picture to you know to my top five dock so we'll go back and then we'll come forward and figure out how how your journey brought brought brought you to where you are today. So let's just talk about you. You you grew up in on the east coast you have a BS from Cornell University. And I don't think you're ever I've heard interviews with you. I don't think you're ever real. Were like a Showbiz guy you were. I don't know what would we call you a guy but I mean you weren't particularly interested in movies you're interested in data like and and how things worked just. I was always interested in ideas. I knew that I was GONNA be involved in enterprises and startup endeavors and things like this. I I went to business school at Columbia. I was always interested in venture capital and technology and new ideas in general Columbia Pictures. Recruited at the school. I went to work for the president. Then President of Columbia pictures as like a a excuse me a strategic planning kind of numbers type of guy so at that time in the nineteen eighties. The movie business was still the vestiges of Irving Thalberg where it was just gut an instinct but in the one thousand nine hundred eighty S. The film industry is sort of modernized and began to make financing transactions and deals with cable companies and video companies and international companies and the. Calculus of the business was the focus. And how do we convert this instinctive type of industry into something where we can optimize if you will and I was hired as a along with a series of other newly minted? Mba's all of which have all of whom have gone onto fairly interesting things in the last thirty years or so to do that. And we had a very dramatic impact on the business of Columbia Pictures and filtered out and then started impacting the rest of the industry in general back then they would hire somebody to be the head of production that would last a year two years three years until their instinct Wore off but now. That's not the case now. These businesses are operated more like conventional businesses in the roots of that change started in the quantitative analytical thinking that we were doing in the nineteen hundred S. Well can I liken it to like back in the day you would hire a radio station would have a DJ. Like when I worked at payback. They'd have all these deejays in the. Dj's will just come in and play the music that they thought had that gut instinct about her that they enjoyed or or bans they had relationships with and then at some point they started testing songs and they started crunching data and then they got. The personal was at the Portable media meter PM and so used to the whole time. I was in radio. I was at K rock. There was a lot of like they had the arbitron diaries. People had a little golf pencil and the diary and they just write down what station. They listened to fill it all out at the end of the month. And the Rodney on the rock would come in there and she had the fish and they just play their own music and at some point. Someone said. Now we're going to figure all this out crunch to data and treat it like any other business. Is that what went on in the film business as well more or less fact when I was in business. School in Columbia did a project. Just like that for P. L. jet in New York was the same thing which is to compile the data and try to optimize the playlist. It takes a lot of the art out of it but it made more money. Your question then would be robbed. You think that. Do you think it was an overall net gain. I mean obviously there were aspects that were improved about production and such and such but like to take on the sound so nebulous that hume inside out of it so to speak. You know what I mean. Do you think it was overall a net positive. A net negative from an artistic right. We were already starting to see in the one thousand nine hundred that an increasing percentage of a smaller percentage of films were responsible for a larger percentage of the box office. You're already starting to see things. Like ghostbusters. Close Encounters Indiana Jones or already consuming a big chunk of the annual box office. So fewer films were responsible for a large percentage of that box and that trend has continued. So what you've seen is an increase in flow of dollars towards bigger budget special effects or or animated films that trend began in one thousand nine hundred eighty s and a lot of it came from that analytical thinking that that some of us were working on well. I know you don't like to think of yourself this way. But you're essentially the man. Everyone complains about. Yeah congratulations. What's interesting Adam? I'm a big movie Fan Rob. So what's interesting about the ones you mentioned yes? They were huge successes. The close encounters and the raiders res- lost Ark and those types of movies but those were made by legit artists. And maybe maybe recognize that at the time. As much as we do now 'cause you know Spielberg Spielberg and Lucas and such and such. But it's like then to try and chase that dragon you had. I mean almost takes the soul out of. I don't know what the hell agreeing with you. Steven Spielberg was brilliant. Filmmaker as Jin Cameron but those films in the Nineteen Seventies. Were really pretty special. Where we're very actor and script oriented and a little bit less visual. I missed a different type of art form but that transition began right around that period. Are we much further down that road now with all the Big Comic Book Spin Offs? And everything having a recognizable title. Now are we. Are we just so far down that road? I mean there's always going to be independent films. And maybe they shift over to Netflix or HBO or something like that but in terms of these big tent pole ELMS are we much further down that road than we were when you were when you were working. We are further down that road. You're presently you'll see five films that all do a Billion Dollars. Worldwide box office of fifteen billion. You'll see five films. That could do a third of that. Bespoke off the air. I think about overnight which was troy Duffy in that whole and I guess that was a Wind Weinstein was in that DOC to wasn't Ariza Wind Company the Harvey Weinstein Story on Boondock. Saints is a fascinating story. Tell tell little about that. I'm very interested in that. So Troy Duffy was a bartender. In a place called. Sloan's maybe you remember Sloan's in West. Hollywood was a great little bar. He had never made a film. He had never really learned how to make a film but he sat down and wrote a screenplay one day and I was sitting in the back yard at the house. Here we are having a dinner party and some guy that worked for our company at that time like intrudes the party come find me in the backyard slams matchbook down on the table in front of me and I said what is that he said our next movie very dramatic just like that and I opened up the matchbook inside. It's at Troy Duffy with his phone number. I called Troy up the next morning. I went to Sloan's the next that afternoon. Spent three or four hours with him. Having some beers he gave me. The script took it home that night. It was just a brilliant brilliant brilliant screenplay I mean it was a riveting screenplay it was funny. It was dramatic it had had pathos to it. It had a point of view so a troy asked us to produce the film. We we did. We agreed to produce the film and then a few days later I called the number of studio executives told them about the film and Harvey Weinstein even without reading. The script. Said I'll buy it. I'll make the movie. I just. I remember. I was driving on the four zero five and I call them. I pitch it to him on the phone and he said I'll fake so we set up a series of meetings at that Sloan's bar and Harvey came to that bar sat down with troy and his offer was. I'll make the movie. You guys can own the movie. Troy can direct the movie you could have final cut and total cash approval. And I'll buy the bar and give you the bar and it was that last piece that made choice sale do it. So the one of choice conditions in making this movie was that everybody who worked or was for frequented. That bar worked on the movie and three of the guys that just frequented the bar. Their job was to document the making the movie so they were they. Were these cameras that were just following us around everywhere and and at some point during the making of the film they had a disagreement with troy that a falling out with try but they kept filming so it ended up becoming a documentary. That wasn't really approved by Choi in fact because Troy didn't like the documentary and where it was going I ultimately didn't sign a release so if you watched that documentary all the scenes with me. Are there out there? You can't you just don't recognize blurred. Where where is that DOC? I'm asking Brian because he always seems to be able to find this Chris. Christie says you can stream it offer free on but if you don't want if you don't you don't want to sign up for that. It's worth a rental not as a solid documentary. Yeah 'cause troy had the most momentum of any person I've ever met in my life but it all came undone yes I was. I came from that movie convinced of one thing and now I have the Guy Rob I can i. Can I throw this off you? Do you think Harvey Weinstein ever intended to make and release that movie because it felt so obviously to me like a publicity stunt there was like it's all a variety Harvey Weinstein buys this unknown guys bar. It's like our. He's very obviously trying to get headlines. Do you think there's ever intention really make the movie like for Real. Yes okay soon. After that deal it was it appeared on the front page of the life section of the USA. Today newspaper that Harvey wanting bought the bar and the the the line of actors. That would come to Sloan's bar every night to meet. Try to ask to be in. That movie was staggering mark. Wahlberg Brad Pitt. Just remember Jim carrey actor after after after after but ultimately what Harvey came to realize is that troy was not really a filmmaker and he was a little bit in over his head and had maybe given you know more than he wanted to and then there was this famous dinner with you. Mcgregor and Troy in New York. I wasn't there but I guess they went out for into the alleyway. Cigarette you and in Troy and you and choice at the UN. Let's get out of this place and go to a strip bar and you and politely turned down. Went back inside called Harvey and said I'm not making a film with this guy's not a filmmaker. The next day harvey stopped returning anybody's calls. He decided he wasn't an honor the deal that he had it he just gave up on troy and gave up on the entire movie and the question was. Are we going to sue them? Are we going to beg him for the movie back and movie ultimately got made and I? I don't know how it was received. Probably didn't get a real high score on rotten tomatoes. It's interesting that the phenomenon the psycho dynamic of the actors the heat going down waiting at the bar. It kind of reminds me of people hoarding toilet paper. What are we doing? It's like we're hoarding toilet paper. Why because that's what we're doing like Hollywood is very much that way now. I'm sure it was a good script. And and there was definitely heat around it but the heat almost built on itself right like it just it just became bigger than than the actual work and. Yeah this guy's never made a film before how how much why are we so confident his ability to direct well. He was a unique voice although it had similarities to pulp fiction. Uh-huh a tone of the room. And so that pulp. Fiction was such a dramatic film in the one thousand nine hundred ninety s and it's had such an impact on the industry in general. Everybody was looking for the next Quentin Tarantino and the thinking was maybe. It's this guy. Troy Duffy who some counterculture Boondock Saints. Twenty five percent with the critics ninety one with the audience. People have quite a chasm all right so from there you go into well the wellness community or the wellness space. How do you get from making these movies into into the wellness space? You know people asked me that question when when somebody starts their career in technology or real estate or finance and then they find their way into the film business. It seems like nobody asks them how the good that's a good point. It's funny when people are lawyers and they do something else. No one asks them why they did something else. Everyone was a former lawyer. Every executive everyone runs a company I used to. I got a lot of great but I moved on and goes but if you said I was a dentist everyone go. What why did you leave? Why did you put the drill down? What got you to. It is interesting. There's something about the film business that we go because I think I think people look at the film. Business is the final destination. Everyone's trying to get there and you clearly arrived there. So then why would you leave? I think people I. It's probably there's probably a compliment in there somewhere. Whatever it is thank you. I felt that the time that I had said what it is that I wanted to say in the business and that there were other things that were inspiring me so I was drifting right around that time and I was getting involved in many other things I had. I had a internet company at that time called talk. Now which is a fairly significant endeavor. That was an e. Commerce company and I was really unanswered by the technology. This was the late ninety so my heart was moving in another direction. I continue even now to work on certain movies. I produce movies even recently but really it's I got very very very Irresistibly passionate about the technology behind nicotinamide riboside this product Naijun. I was first introduced to it in the late ninety. So I've been involved in this thing about twenty years and I found it so fascinating him. So compelling and so brilliant that The Passion that I had for ultimately inevitably became a professor. Well we're talking about basically once you hit a certain age and it's it's it's younger than you think your body just starts dying off and it's it's a slow process. You try to stave it off with you know some exercise and fresh air but I mean certain point your body essentially starts dying and then we have all kinds of injections and creams and stuff to put on top of our body. But it's kind of tough when we're doing it back to the an algae kind of from the inside out it. Still dying but with Botox. You just don't look right so And what's happening is the cells and we need to fix it at a cellular level and I. I'm guessing this is A. This is a hot topic for people because especially for people who have some money which is the one thing you can't buy is time but maybe we're getting to that point where you can start buying high right and so explain explain. What's going on on the cellular level? Rob Sorry so I believe that this problem of aging and even dying is a problem that we will solve it. What do you think how far off like what I got a thirteen year? Old Son Oh yeah daughter damage. I got a thirteen year old daughter. She should look good and a two piece when she's in her eighties. Nobody's are philosophically. They're thirteen. I mean by the time they need by the time they start dying we should have something but then but but philosophically. What if they live to two hundred like? What do we do here like? How does that part work? We even begun to wrap our minds around that aspect of this. I think that we will solve the problem of resources uncertain space. I think let's solve the problem of dine first so all the stuff we're talking about all the joints all the all the all the diseases. All the everything is essentially a dying. I can barely feel it. I feel it for me in my hands. I worked whole life with my hands. I was a carpenter Drew who doesn't complement me Very often said to me yesterday when he was pulling on my finger to try to give me a pin prick for for the virus tests. Said you don't have any fat on your fingers for a man ladies and I said Yeah. I don't know how it works. But he said you probably because you work with your hands your whole life and and I was a boxer and trained people in boxing so my hands took a lot of punishment but there are one thousand percent fine my entire life even though I punish the shit out of my hands doing all the manual labor and all the boxing training and all the punching everything and about two or three years ago. They started to go like it. I could feel like oh it was getting swale and on my pinky. I can't straighten my pinky anymore. I could feel it in the form of my hands and that was just five time kicking in and And then I started thinking. Jesus Christ what the Hell my hands GonNa look like when I'm seventy five or eighty but I'd like to stave that off a little bit could but I'm sorry I'm all talk about your hands for say so. Every every living cell has a coenzyme called nicotinamide adding dynamically tied and a deep an entity is involved with every important metabolic processes inside the cell in ninth grade or tenth grade when we took biology. We learned about the Krebs cycle or this this this idea of energy metabolism How the body converts the nutrients from Food and the oxygen from air into energy and that energy is transported through the cell molecules called ATP molecules and the organ inside the cell responsible for that is called the Congress. This is basic science that we've known about for one hundred years in order for my the Conrad do that. It requires this thing called any but as I mentioned before there are also these enzymes called Parkinson's that are responsible for repairing damage to the cell. So if you punch your hand repeatedly the ourselves there in the in the tissue in the muscles in the hand the get inflamed when that inflammation goes from acute inflammation meaning the type of inflammation. You get when you spray. A hand or sprained an ankle and helps cure it to to chronic inflammation that you live with it. It leads to all kinds of other problems and indications like arthritis for example when we are young the level of NASD is so high that we're able to ward off that oxidative stress in that inflammation but as we age the NASD levels are so low that when the inflammation is introduced. We can't ward it off. We can't reduce it leads to these diseases and indications so the question is if we elevate an A. D. Levels can we restore park levels and energy metabolism levels so the south functions as though it did when we were young and would now talking about dozens of of studies in the Scientific Literature. That suggests the answer to that. Question is yes you can't. Yeah what is the best way to elevate? Ad Levels and it appears as though the by far the most efficient and safest ineffective way to elevate in a D levels. Is this thing called Nicotinamide riboside. Are we call true nitrous in a pill form in a pill for and I know there's a study that came out just moments ago that We're talking about Off The air a little bit about what's in this study but Literally just got it hours ago. Yeah out we just. So there's a scientist in the early. Two thousands at Dartmouth named Charles Brenner now University of Iowa. Who discovered the that? This ingredient nicotinamide riboside elevates any D levels inside the cells and does it very safely efficiently. You're not only discovered that it doesn't he also discovered that when the cell is under distress it action. There's an enzyme. That's actually what they say with the call. Up regulated or activated searching for that molecule to elevate any D- levels to repair itself so several years ago one of the world's leading researchers on Corona virus. A guy named Stan Perlman at also at University of Iowa and Dr Brenner did an actual study on corona virus and it turned out from several years ago that when a corona virus attached to a cell the energy levels decline rapidly and the park the repair levels go up rapidly so with that suggests the cell is trying to heal. It's always trying to ward off the virus and is trying to heal itself virus. A hits it so Charlie Dr Brenner and Dr Perlman about a month ago said dusted off that thing and said you know we never published this thing. Whoever heard a coronal bars right so they replicated? In the last month they replicated that studying a whole series of other human cells and they also accumulated data from other researchers that have published their data in the last month on ferrets. There's a ferret study. Leave it or not. Ferrets have our animals that have very very similar lungs to human so they do lung disease studies on ferrets to test to see if it's a a match so the Ferret Studies. There's a study on on cadaver a human body that died of corona virus. And there's also these genetic studies and these studies are all values me. How do they do the two questions? How do they do the study on the cadaver? How's that executed in Dawson? What were the name or the ferrets master Kodo and Porto okay? There's downs now. We'll get to the cadaver so all they do is draw the blood from the cadaver. And then they're they're just it's it's it's a simplistic preclinical. Study it's not a study that said we can cure anything it just. It was just a study to say did do the energy levels in the blood of this cadaver are they decreased because the presence of the corona virus are the par levels increased and that enzyme that is looking for. Nigeria or nicotinamide. Reiver's side is that increase in the answer to all three of those were. Yes is this. Is this a so just to put it in? Layman's terms Something I've always thought which is if you're vulnerable than this thing can take you down and if you're if you're less vulnerable you have a much better. Shot and less vulnerable means not overweight eating healthy exercising and This True Niger in product could also strengthen your cells against against the virus yet so it turns out that as we age and Eddie levels decline dramatically. I mean there's there's literature that suggests that when you're forty you have half the level of an ID in your cells when you're twenty half and that it it has again from forty to sixty. I have a quick question in here. You know the human lifespan. Easer some some version of that or maybe maybe five hundred years ago. The human human beings didn't make it much past forty so was nature just sort of saying. Alright you're forty six. It's time to die. You don't have to have kids anymore. You're not Tony. Randall Google that's Yeah. I think it was like eighty four or something like that but we. We don't need you anymore. You're an old timer. Your forty six years old now. Pleat different culture going on. We got forty forty six. It's the new twenty-six People WanNa look good. They WANNA THEY WANNA go snowboarding. They want to be active so nature sort of said. Well you're in your forties. We're done with you but we're saying now. We like to make it into our eighties and nineties and we don't WanNa look like Shit and have our joints hurt the whole time. Is that kind of the General Synopsis Of the battle. Here yes I think. Also the epidemiology of people dying when their forty six wasn't so much that the body was decaying at that point. It was more that it was more statistical that people died of diseases or accidents or things at such a young age when you calculated the mean or the median. It ended up being forty six. But this idea that the the that the human body decays in that there is a a an expiration date on the human body as a real idea and there is evidence suggests that the body is not capable of living past one twenty or so but I think that the science that we're looking at now in the longevity field not just in a D nicotinamide driver's side although that is by far the most actionable thing other than exercise and staying thin that you can do is to take but but you look at all the other interventions that are being researched and looked at. And there's no doubt that this problem is going to be solved that we're that the life span of human body is going to extend well beyond one twenty and probably even for in time for your thirteen year old daughter you know they have those they always talk about especially the krona virus. There's going to be the death courts who's GonNa decide who gets the ventilator and who doesn't I'm going to need someone in charge of deciding like who's bigot. Whose so big DOUCHEBAG. They shouldn't see their eightieth birthday. I can't have you two one five. You're such an insufferable Bush. Just because you can doesn't mean you should write and I'll be I'll be the guy in the gold windbreaker deciding on who does that. Hey Rob let me give a Let me give a plug for you. True Nigerian that's T. R. U. N. I A. G. E. N. DOT COM is the website you go to. It's also the product I I won't I won't say any names on the air but Robin I spoke off the air. Lots notable people On this product because You think about the notable people they they have the resources but they don't. They're still on the same clock. Were on I think it's about I don't know thirty five bucks a month worth a bottle or the bottle has a few months in it right but it but it runs about thirty five bucks a month for the supplement. Yes which Yeah it seems But BUCKTON BUCK. Twenty-five a day seems pretty worth it to me so Rob I hope we'll talk again soon. There's even more information out there and Congratulations on this study. This is this is a big deal. Timely and I think people be taking it Prophylactically I guess is the Word Ryan Yes. I think there's evidence of a prophylactic benefit Anna therapeutic benefit. But at this point you're talking about preclinical studies we still need to actually prove a human clinical peer reviewed. Study that it actually works right now. We're looking at mechanistic impact. If you have a ferret well on ferret living forever make throat our great shame rob freed. Thank you very much. You go to True with the U. T. R. U. N. I A. G. E. N. DOT COM. And get all the Info right there. Thanks Rob Anytime Adam. Thank you guys talk. Share all right. Let's take a quick break. We'll come back and do the news right after this.

I'm your host Nate Wilcox and today I've got the distinct pleasure been joined by two of my colleagues in the Pantheon podcasting network. We've got the rock and Roll Librarian. Shelly Sorenson in Christian Swain the major Domo of the whole network and the rocket archaeologist. Welcome thank state and today we're GonNa talk about a classic of Rock Literature. No one here gets out alive by Jerry. Hopkins and Danny sugarman bother. Were deceased so. This is a perfect way to cover a real cornerstone of rock music literature. When we don't have the authors to go to so thanks so much for coming on and helping us discuss Jim Morrison and the doors. I love that we get to make up whatever we want. Because there's no dispute from the author's well you know some people say that Danny sugarman and Jerry Hopkins did just that is by FIA of their dead former acquaintance in tournaments case former client. But we'll get to that at the end. Let's just jump right in there. I mean this is a biography of a Jim Morrison Came out in nineteen eighty two. I believe about eleven years after he died was an enormous bestseller. I mean this was an the racks at the airports at seven. Elevens this was a trade paperback. It had a picture of Jim. Morrison not from nineteen sixty seven shirtless and beautiful. Just immortal at triggered rolling stone cover story said he's hot. He sexy he's dead. And kind of triggered the whole sixties revival that was a big pop culture factor in the eighties. What was it about mid sixties? La that made it such a great place to launch a rock career shelley. Well you know at that time. An La was big of course a big TV and movie capital and was increasingly becoming news capitol as well and at that time in nineteen sixty four Jim Started Jim. Morrison started studies at the UCLA film school and this was what they called the professors called the Golden Age of film at Ucla and and in Los Angeles the Faculty included top directors. And the students included the no other note none other than Francis Ford Coppola. So Jim was right there. You know in the middle of the burgeoning film industry at the time and on the weekends he went to Venice. Beach which had been a Mecca for the beat generation in the fifties and still to this day not even in the eighties but now still has kind of Bohemian tradition. So it was a you know a right kind of time for all these different movies. Tv music to kind of counter you know interest fertilized. That's a a word probably not And you know I think it was just A. He was in the right place at the right time. Kind of thing Chris Well I agree with you I I might add. There's been many Golden Ages in Hollywood Specifically in the the early nineteen sixties You know there was a a the the French new wave was was definitely in bogue A lot of experimentalism Was going on both in film and in Music very of and You Know Jim And his Ucla compatriots Including Ray Kurzweil Were in in in those kind of a boundary pushing concepts and ideas as far as L. A. I think he hit the nail on the head At least in America Wild New York's considered the media capital Certainly at that time You know La is where the entertainment business will was really still ground zero in in in in maintained that ever since and so to to be able to take literally The British invasion and digest it and And then create a response Naturally it seems said. L. A. was a fitting place for that in the mid sixties. Yeah and you had the birds and love On the sunset strip the bird. You know with Columbia records big in sixty five and then love. Kinda ruled the scene on the streets for the next couple of years. And that's the band that Jim Morrison wanted to emulate. Their whole goal is to be as big as love. So Yeah Arthur Lee and company Yeah In the you know there were others. that that didn't quite make it but You know by then the I think. The troubadour was around Obviously the whisky a go go had switched from a dinner. A supper club as they used to call them. to Something more kin to what we recognize today. The whiskey Beena you know a real rock and roll club. Yeah it's interesting. Go ahead so oh one of the things. I thought was interesting about how the book described when Jim Lived Near the La Strip and the whiskey ago. Elektra records is that he could. He had everything there within walking distance. You know that he it would centro to the bar and club scene and and he lived with his girlfriend in Laurel Canyon and so he he just You know physically everything. Was there where he needed it. I think it was clear that lived Robby Krieger that guitar lived in Laurel Canyon. I think Jim stated basically flop house motels that will within walking from and it's an his girlfriend's apartment. I thought that was. Yeah Canyon but I guess it was near to the strips. Pamela Courson yes. He might have been in Laurel Canyon at one point a web tracking that super closely. What was what was it about the America that was ready for Jim Morrison. What was going on in that point. That's a big question. There were there were so much going on in the sixties experimentation with with LSD and marijuana the whole sexual liberation And I think one thing that Jim and the door is really You know well Jim was. Kinda the quintessential person to to to you know. Experience the generation gap which was huge than he not only denied as parents ideas than value. Later on he denied he said they were dead. He said you know denied that they even existed and And then also He read was very well read and he his favorite book was. Jack Kerouac Nama Rosa Road and that was like the beat generation and it was published in fifty seven. So all the kids you know at that time in the sixties where reading that Reading that book and when Jan lived kind of briefly and Sam in Alameda near San Francisco he came in to the city and you know frequented city lights bookshop and read all the beat poetry and a furling getty and Ginsburg or favorites of his. So this was all kind of going into the whole Revolution of the sixties. That he was you know pretty much at the forefront of I think well let's let's face it You know postwar World is dominated by America. Because we're the last man standing In our culture was Was a were the victors You know we were hardly touched By the atrocities of Ah for years or lost six years of war I and You know we benefited from From being the APEX culture And then we began to export that culture of notably of films and music And You know by the time you get into the mid nineteen sixties You know America is a dominant Technological Player and You know obviously You know capitalism is In a battle of pitched battle with communism There is a lot of Of fear and uncertainty because of the bomb And the fact that You know the the idea that you know humanity had to contemplate that its entire existence could be wiped out in a about a thirty minute period. And I think that began to weigh on Some of these I You know as we know Jim. A comes from a military family is. His Dad was Rear Admiral in Pacific Fleet At the time was actually inconsequentially involved in the Gulf of Tonkin affair and You know as far as GM his Being a little bit different than than Some of his contemporaries You know rock and roll was Fairly relegated to Subject matter of girls in cars in its early Incarnation The original pioneers. And then you know. I think it'd be fair to say that Bob Dylan and a few others Began to that and Lyrical content began To become a deeper and exploratory and I think Jim took it in a very very dark Way I I. I like to think of him as You know the the real Prince of darkness To Take that title away from Some of the heavy metal Guys notably Ozzy Osbourne Because I think he's the one that really invented Shock Rock on a pop scale on a grand scale You know the the medium. A of choice At that time was. Am radio there was no FM radio. I and AM radio Played whatever was a hit Black White Rock pop country Folk it didn't matter a one after another and I think that these guys Along with the you know the far. Fisa Raymond's Eric Keyboard sound created a sonic a difference. out there that The the kids really gravitated to Elektra. Records was right there in l. a. too and they just had a trial run with love. They'd put out two albums to reasonable success for abandoned refuse to leave L. A. Essentially And so they couldn't go to that Sullivan show etc etc and weren't doing national tours but Elektra had introduced themselves at the rock market as a as a middling player they already pretty. Well established bulk player. So you know it was perfect. They they they had a really aggressive approach to the marketing. Put in giant billboards over the sunset strip with Morrison's very pretty face on it and the time Tom was perfect. It was also interesting because it was the last window. When the Teeny bopper magazines like sixteen and Tiger beat where essentially the only rock press in America? And so you've got this artists that you now consider alternative or underground and within just a couple of years. He would have been considered that you know the doors would be the kind of band it would only be on FM radio. That would only put out albums that you might not even see their faces or much less there leather clad bodies but instead of Jim Morrison doing these spreads he's fashion spreads. You know looking at sexiest. I'll get out and driving the little girls wild. Let's hear the first song that Jim Morrison Sang for Ray Manzarek. Who was a classmate of his at the UCLA film school and and was a practicing professional semi pro musician. And Jim had no musical experience. They bumped into each other and the beach and Jim saying some of the words to moonlight. Draw through the through the And you know our face. The Moon Line drive which appeared on the door second album I can remember. I think it's strange days. Always WANNA call it. People are strange. Which was the hit single off that album bud and listening to that song. It's perfectly good door song. But it's not one lyrically that blows to wipe it. Blu Ray man's rockaway and and you know they were. They were often running but shelley the book I I remember. I was a kid a seventh grader. Reading a totally impressionable and I would not let my son read this book but what what am I remember just being horrified at what a I just thought he was the jerk of all time. What did you feel about? Jim Morrison from the way the book tells US Slice Story. Well You know I actually Mo- most I know about new about Jim. Morrison before I read this book was the Oliver Stone movie that was I guess was based on this book. Right and I wasn't doors fan and I you know I didn't buy doors albums. I was Let's see I was born in fifty seven so you know I remember being in junior high school and hearing their music but I I wasn't you know I wasn't attracted to them As band or him as a musician And this book purports to you. Know it's it tells all about basically you know that. He was an alcoholic from the time he was a teenager and I think you know it's very worse and all about is about his drug and alcohol use about his treatment of his friends about his treatment of women So he you know I don't think it Helped me feel more kindly toward Jim Morrison? Even though the writers say they described him. You know his more sensitive side and as a poet visionary and All you know somebody that is very important to the rock and roll. Music scene I it didn't kind of changed my mind about him. You know as a person kind of being so selfish self centered you know alcoholic and So I don't know his his upbringing. Was you know he was raised by these very conservative parents as Christian was saying his father was in the military and his mother was the perfect military mother. You know and wife could. They moved frequently and she kept house. And you know they weren't abused or you know anything like that. But Jim was totally a excessive person even as a child and kind of torture to siblings. And I love being way and then you know and then was nice to them and you know really did extreme dangerous things so You Know I. I don't think it was the rock and roll lifestyle that that that turned him into an alcoholic. Like like you might have seen on the star is born or something like that Yeah and and I think that You know he I don't know he just rejected his parents out and out. I Just because he was a symbol of authority. I think By the time he was you know he had moved out of the house. You'd bear. He didn't even speak to them again. He would tell you that They were dead right and that was on the first liner notes of the first record that had no currents they were dead You know personally I I I Of course Christian knows my story but I I Sympathize more with his mother than I do with him as a mother of a of an alcoholic. Who reject you know their family? I think it's just a very painful. I don't yeah anyway so I didn't come away from the book with kind of a a better impression of Jim as a person but maybe more respect for him As a as a poet lyricist I would say that's my well not Jim. Jim's obviously a complicated man He childish manipulative And you know interested intensely on The the darker aspects of of life and And obviously Had demons that He couldn't work out and you know self medicated himself to death but as as a good artist he was able to Tap into that and present that In a public manner That connected with a with a large audience and exposed Some of these feelings which I don't think had been really Explored in popular music up until that time. Yeah absolutely and one thing that struck me reread in forty years after I read it. The first time was the importance of his theatrical and film background at and also how intellectually who is of all the musicians united research couple years of doing this project the only one an education comparable is bing crosby who went to a Catholic law school and read all the great philosophers. Jim Morrison is an incredibly well educated person who read all this philosophy and I took himself a little bit too seriously but I think also unique and innovative in that he was self consciously analyzing the rock scene and he had been a fan of Elvis Presley as a kid but he wasn't. He wasn't a greasy haired rocker. He was not somebody who is a singer from day. One and out in the clubs and you know seeing it and he wasn't a folksinger like Jerry Garcia the birds. Are you know? He wasn't playing in Latin Bar Vincent moby grape. I mean he was he was an intellectual. He was film student and pretty bad film student. It seems like like he walked out of Ucla completely but really understood something about how to manipulate. Crowds like Assorted forgave him for his band sister. Manipulative jerk with everybody. He knew when I realized that became his art. That was what he was doing. He was just experimenting with this idea of Control and he clearly had awesome powers in that direction and that kind of is I think what bit him in the ass I mean he got everything he wanted so fast with the doors you know. They quickly succeeding on the club circuit in La quickly signed to a label. There's a you know brief delay getting a hit single their first single flops. By their second one is a monster and boom you know. He's all his dreams of having a platform for watched. The pontificate of manipulate audiences comes true. And then it's like wow. Was that worth. Be careful what you wish for absolutely but said a little bit about the other members of the band like what you've felt about damage personalities in the way they're presented in the book. Yeah I mean Oh I thought it was very interesting the way they all met. You already talked about how he met Ray in In the film school. And then you know on the beach and ray just went well. That's the best. Those are the greatest fucking song lyrics. I've ever heard let's start a rock and roll band. Make a million dollars and and You know quickly ray discovered Jim nobody. Nobody else discovered Jim. Ray Discovered Jim and said you wanna be in our band in the band that he was in already and Jim said I don't play anything and he said just just hold the guitar you know on stage. And that's how he got his his start on stage but one of the things I thought was interesting. Was that John. Dense more The Drummer Ray met in his meditation class and then John Introduced Robby. Krieger to them who he had met in his meditation. Class Liberal meditators Which I thought was really interesting for rock musicians and Jim never never no no. They weren't others. Were meditators which was probably the only way they could put up with him And you know they and they were all musicians and played a variety of music. Johnson dense more played jazz drumming and in college and Ray Krieger Plates go via an folk blues will Mingo And Flamingo for incoming flank. I dictated my notes. John Water out here. And and in fact he played bottleneck guitar so nicely that Jim wanted him to play. Kind of exclusively bottleneck on most of his first songs And so they were you know actual musicians and Yeah I thought that was really interesting. That That they were all meditators. Yes a very late. Sixties thing to be doing in the mid sixties. They're all kind of headed their time. There yeah yeah I know remember detailing. Yeah yeah that way ahead of its time for that sort of thing we are. You guys are in the land of fruits and nuts here because belcher born and raised in. California me true. It's like the cult villains in every Raymond Chandler novel. There's always come on now. I did learn to meditate in junior high school. I went to a kind of a hippy. School Yeah we transcendental meditation. That was yeah I think. S Lon was up and running by sixty five to four you know and by then Alberton leary had been kicked out of Harvard and were looking for someplace to go. I think they were mostly Mexico at that particular moment but By you know by sixty four sixty five You know can key see has gone through the M. K. Ultra experiments performed by the CIA and discovered that this This little drug that they were handing out Was really cool without the CIA and You know started stealing some from the the pharmacists At the The mental institution. He was working at and researching is upcoming book. One flew over the CUCKOO's nest and then started handed out to His buddies Mostly musician friends. Who then they started to share it with their musician. Friends and so by by sixty five Sixty six Yeah the the world is turned on its head For those who have Indulged in the experiment of from a Mr Albert Hoffman. Let's let me jump in and another song. This is a breakfast and Vile Alabama song which is a completely crazy song for rock band to cover. Nineteen sixty seven. It was a cabaret show tune from decadent. Orlando in the nineteen twenties The radical communists creator of the alien nation affecting all these intellectual theories so the doors have been detained for pretentious covering this button. I think they managed to so it into their of pretty nicely. This is the Alabama. So don't ask why show to be we. Don't next whiskey. We must be. We must And that was Jim Morrison and the doors saying Brecht Involves Alabama Song which I mean must've blown minds in the sixties and muskets. Like I know I had no idea who breakfast vile were Until I heard this song and read rolling stone panning the doors for being pretentious for covering it and that led me off on a whole voyage of discovery. And I'm sure lots of people. I don't think you need to go to the name of the band you know taken from Aldous Huxley's the doors of Perception Is evidence enough of Some sort of pretentiousness. Absolutely have a question for you guys. So but It's certainly in in Germany. It wasn't called the Alabama Song Right. I mean I didn't know that about that song that it was a breast Tune called the Alabama Song. I believe it was called Alabama Song I should have. I seen it up before. Kristen you now I can. I can pull up really quick. But it's part of the threepenny opera and Alabama had world rod infamous reputation as a slave capital So I'm sure it was not and I think it was. It was Just a well known I think it was just a commentary on on America. It's also called Alabama. I think oh I see okay. Another whiskey bar. Yeah Yeah that was translated. Show me the way to the next Whiskey. And it was actually. It was from the play. Little Mahogany not the threepenny opera translated by the English lyrics were written by Elizabeth Hopton in nineteen twenty five So yeah I mean they were just into crazy weird stuff. We began as the German poem and and translated by their purposes. But they were they were like that movie cabaret basically it was. It was the whole decade and Weimar Republic thing and and I found when I went back and listened to the whole doors catalog. I thought held up pretty well especially compared to their the Jefferson Airplane and the grateful dead and other California bands from sixty classes sixty seven. You know I think and I think rolling stone infamously in eighties just hated the doors. I think they gave the first album three stars and everything else less and then you know by the by the time. Yeah Dave Marsh of all people who you know as quoted in the early seventies praising some of their albums in the book turn pretty viciously on him. I think influenced by Robert Chris. Cow My friend Edward. His still hates the doors but you know by the nineties edition the Rolling Stone Record Guide. They've thrown in the towel. Declared them one of the three opoku California bands of the sixties along with the beach boys in the grateful dead and yeah to me like when ads starts descend the doors. I just say well you know. Patti Smith IGGY pop that they were pretty big deal more about what they thought than. What about Iraq critics thought? Yeah well at somebody who was born in San Francisco grew up in L. A. and lived in San Francisco in the bay area for over forty years I think As far as California goes there you know there was a and the kind of music that was going on and I just to tell you Kind of a personal anecdote. My husband who's older than me and eighteen. Seventeen eighteen in San Francisco in nineteen sixty seven. When I told him I was covering the doors on this podcast. She said you know in in San Francisco had no one liked the doors. He said they heard a light my fire and he knew instantly it would be a hit but he didn't he didn't like it and none of his friends liked it and they were all into you know what seeing Hendricks and Janice Joplin and Mike Bloomfield. And you know and the grateful dead at the fillmore and you know it was like a very different aesthetic Certainly than the doors and and you know he said whereas Hendrix with a musical genius. They just thought that Morrison was a drunk singer. You know and I know that's not on cabaret singer. Yeah and that's obviously not all of San Francisco. Because when they came to San Francisco they were very well received. You know at the Phil. Mahre by by by the public learn. Yeah Yeah but let let me jump in here and just say Oh there's a huge difference In the mid sixties between the L. A. Musicians and that sound versus the San Francisco. A sound There's a reason why the Free speech is at Berkeley hated the fucking hippies Because they wouldn't get up there as do anything worthwhile and from the hippies perspective they were like no man You know we. We want to explore everything And you know most famously Encapsulated by you know the music of the grateful dead which you know as they grew you know it was a it was experimental You know it was open It was loose whereas you know L. AAC. Even was was a professional organization. Fact you know most of the bands that we think of out of La had some form of studio players on them You know most famously recognized now. As the wrecking crew Including the doors You know they didn't have a bass player and when they needed a bass player they pulled in some of those great Studio cats Down in southern California so there was a level of professionalism that really existed down in l. a. That did not exist in La. I in San Francisco and there was a real separation between those two camps at that particular moment now of course You know this all begins to Gel and and become You know looking back at history It seems like you know while there's this California moment but there were two very distinct camps at the time. Yeah it's interesting. His interactions You know he talked about him. Seeing the Jefferson Airplane and and not liking them later on and talks about him hanging out with Janice Joplin rally being abusive and awful to her. Which was exactly the kind of thing she was drawn to. You know they were peas in a pod. She's looking to be right humiliated and abused and his slugging it out. So those two right you know. Of course Baldo chemical makes any also there. There's a mention of him seen Hendrix. I can't remember where and and you know crawling up to the stage and grabbing Hendrix by the knees ankles do not to suffocate himself to the Hendrick. So you know. They're they're definitely yeah the Currents and rivalries San Francisco and I think that the fact that Rolling Stone magazine was in San Francisco. Just sort of how does it now and in an and they definitely flew that in rolling stone. If you're familiar with the history of the editorial practices were very partisan. They love John Lennon and Yoko the hated Paul McCartney they love the grateful dead then so much like the doors although they turned on the de too. But you know this thing about Morrison isn't manipulator and and in a obviously manipulated as audiences but at the beginning he was very skillful manipulator of the press but then then he changes in the way you know he he behaves toward the press and sort of self sabotage is. Do you think that was just a function of him being to alcoholic to do his job or was that sort of a philosophical switch when he become disillusioned with the machinery of success and starter? I would say. Disillusion is definitely a factor You know coupled with massive self-medication You have no patience You know when you've been asked the same question hundreds of times right and I. Yeah I think I think the manipulating the press was hard work. I mean you have to really think about it and you had to come up. You Know He. He came up with great quotes. And and you know Really defined his image in the press by you know coming out with these lengthy so things like think of us as erotic politicians that was one of his quotes And he you know like you said he was really into being photographed to you know or you know for code and jewelry and cut his hair like Alexander. The great and I thought it was interesting. That in junior college he took a class on collective behavior. Which was the psychology of crowds? And he he learned how to trying to tell his friends how interesting that was an how they could you know. Look at a crowd and make love to it and cure it and make it riot and his friends all thought he was not but obviously that was something he used to great effect in his public performances to and let me Japan and key the neck song then will return to that and talk about how he manipulated crowds basically to destroy his career. But let's I hear Love Street. And this is the spoken word bridge of the song so it can hear Jim Morrison. The poet backed by rock band. There's Love Street doors. There's this store where the creatures me wonder what they do and the summer Sundae and a year. I guess I like it fine so far. That was Love Street by Jim. Morrison and the doors and listen to. I mean he's taking a lot of critical brackets bricks and brackets for for being pretentious and a quote bad poet and everything but to me. When I listened to that it holds a comparable to like Allen Ginsberg guests in with the clash or something I really hear the influence of the beats and it doesn't it to me. It doesn't ruin the song at all or the record. It fits right in something. Like horse latitudes or celebration of the lizards a little different especially when celebration lizard goes on for ten minutes on the live album but not too bad but let me let you get back to what you're talking about shelly. And and the whole way told Tale of how he instigated deliberately attempted to instigate a riot in Miami and what the fallout. That was right. He you know. He wanted to hit an tell the other band members. She was going to do this but he really wanted to You know expose himself and see what would happen if he did that. And you know and then the story goes back and forth. Did he really exposed himself or did he just make it look like he did and one of the reasons he did that was that he didn't like the you know he was getting tired of the adulation that he was getting this crowd mentality that he had actually created but then he realized it was going too far and he couldn't just be himself and be a poet and he wanted to put a stop to it so he really purposely sabotaged His I don't know his I can't stay reword his career by doing that and then of course you got you know. charges pressed against him for indecent exposure. Trial went on for a really long time and he was banned by many Venues you know to play. And when they when they let him come back and play when they let the doors come back and play they had to put up huge amounts of money. As bond you know to encase the concert was cancelled or or interrupted by the police or something like that or in case she did something else scenes so yeah he he he really did you know Grind their career You know of course it came back up slowly but surely and to great degree but He really put a pause on their career there for a while by doing that. Well I think The some of the output wasn't a stellar as well I also think You know Music Trends Were changing rapidly There was some catch up in that Let's face it as we said at the top. You Know Jim wasn't a trained musician or You know took an interest in what that professional lifestyle is and what it means and You know a nate. You said You know the rise to stardom was so fast that It's it's very easy to see You know a a rejection of that especially for someone who you know And and if I can you know Jim was not born. You know a a Greek God. he was actually Rather Averaging in a little Chubby Through his elementary school years it needed and blossom until His College Age And started to get attention for his attractiveness And his Outgoing nub of personality manipulative. Or what have you But he was in always did consider himself a writer and desire to be a poet and that lifestyle is one of the internal not the not the external right. Yeah absolutely and that was one of my sympathetic things. I thought that the authors did in the book that they pointed out he did walk. It like you talk that. He did buy a mansion. He didn't by plane. He you know he never had big cars that basically he never had anything beyond a week's worth of clothes six pack of beer and a handful of books at any given time he would be floated from you know these flop house motels to various girlfriends apartment. And you know he's living basically the Charles Bukowski lifestyle this with the Rockstar. But he wasn't materialistic. Yeah in fact. I like how I in the beginning. A At least. The addition I had one reviewer describes him Not The cliches of rise and fall of corruption by wealth and fame but a sudden burning out of a volatile spoiled gifted intelligent artistic individual. So he he you know like like I said before he wasn't Ruined by fame like so many other rock and roll musicians like you know how they're they're kind of okay but then they get turned by their By their fame you know to to excess and wasting of money and getting attached at and all that stuff And and getting addicted to drugs and alcohol. That was that was the way he was. He was already addicted to drugs and alcohol and he wasn't. He wasn't attracted by by wealth and materialism at all it was attracted by art. And and I agree with you that that is one that is one. A Rick Redeeming feature of Jim Morrison for me. We'll let me let me add something to that shelly. Great Point That you know as Morrison Becomes more confident on and they grow As an act it gyms concept which was different than the other three a was to inject more. Let's call performance art Into live shows And try to take them into You know some of festival of Dyonisis Or what have you To to get the audience to you know get out of themselves and experience You know a a true art happening at the time and also had the whole you know you talk about the drop in quality of the of their albums. And it's very clear that third and fourth album you know are not as great as the first and second or their last two and his attempt to record this celebration of the Lizard Suite which knows a ten minute. Plus full album longside Concept OF OF SUITE OF POEMS SET TO MUSIC. It was very ahead of its time. It looks it. He's aiming to do something that the prog rockers should be doing you know and and and just a few years. But they couldn't pull it off and it. Kinda reminds me of Pete. Townsend's life Allied House plus to be this whole a multimedia movie concept thing and it implodes but they managed to salvage the songs and create their masterpiece. Who'S NEXT FOR THE DOORS? They kind of had to stumble along without you know. They didn't have the book of songs that the Salvation Lizard does not several great rock songs. You know it was. It was a suite. That was either GonNa work as a whole or not work at all. They did manage to perform it. Live but they're they're comeback sort of it's driven by robby especially Robbie. I think robbery. Krieger is a way under praised performer and songwriter He wrote agree light my fire and right. Lohan asks his first song. Yeah and so. Many of their pop hits You know don't you love her madly etc etc. He's the pop songwriter. But Jim songwriting grows too. So you know. They're a great team with Robbie writing the AM single hit. And then Jim coming up with stuff like L. A. Woman which is a long form song that does work in Iraq context so they were able to respond to you know the innovations of led Zeppelin and the band and everything with last two albums that come back and really you know. Put down a marker for the doors as a as a serious quality hard rock band and and one back a lot of the critics at least at the time and let's go ahead and here one of those songs. Let's hear peace frog which has got music by robby? Krieger and lyrics by Jim. Morrison route back on Peace Frog for Morrison Hotel which many people saw as a comeback album and attempt by the doors to reestablish their rot credibility. And I have to say. I don't generally get into rock criticism because it's not the point of this show but I have to say I think it holds up very well with the material put out by their peers at the time and I recently saw David crosby getting on twitter and dissing the doors and maybe WanNa slap his face. Like how dare you? You could not touch them on their best semi crosby. Did what crosby did with the birds in crosby stills Nash which is great you know invading folk rock and invented you know soft rock and all that but he never was a credible hard rocker and the doors. I think I think really were. I mean how do you guys write them like? Do you think they hold up? I mean the whole idea of. He's redeemed because of his commitment to art if he's a charlatan in a fake. That's there's nothing redemptive about that. But if if you think you may some to lasting gonNA this redemptive what he'd think right. I know I agree. I I think I don't think he's a charlatan and a fake at all And I think the songs hold up and I I find him credibly authentic. Go ahead shelley. Oh I was just GonNa say Peace Frog is one of my favorites but actually out the base actually has the baseline on it. Which I I'm always attracted to good baseline and maybe and I was telling Christian before we went on air. That may one reason that I wasn't particularly like moved by the doors music When I was a teenager because I didn't hear a lot of being On the records. I've I've just. In retrospect I'm thinking that that may be one of the things but yeah I yeah I think I think the music I mean you know. I don't recognize the titles of the songs and so when I went back to listen to a lot of like oh I know all of these I mean I know I. I'm familiar with all of the songs. Even though I never had a doors album I never owned doors. That open right there. Yeah yeah definitely. What were you gonNa say Christian? Oh just to add on to You know they're worth and they're they're influence to later works You know You know I I think certainly at the time you know they you know were the darkest ban Before there really were you know dark bands of which came on the horizon. I mean you know. Blacks out doesn't even show up till nineteen seventy and In in as we know now you know they're They're imagery and motifs. Were you know based on fantasy on hammer horror films? You know this. This was about You know selling a comic book version of of themselves And you know Morrison was everything that you've got You know most of it not great but some of its sublime and You know You know he's I find him one of the most authentic characters to ever come out of rock and roll. Yeah and I think one of the best ways to measure the power of a musical artist by their influence and the fact that essentially all hard rock singers going forward are either going to be influenced by the Golden Boy Robert Plant or the Prince of darkness. Jim Morrison and you get the call. Glenn Dancing of the misfits and dancing and etc etc his iggy pop based his basically his whole act on Jim Morrison and for somebody because Agee as seen as as punk and Jim is classic rock there. People miss that connection. But it's a direct absolutely chain and hand off but let's talk about the book before we wrap up. What do you guys think about the book? I mean it's very salacious. It goes out of its way to mention the him but fucking groupies. Excuse the terminology. But that's why they talk about you know and then go ahead. Write a song called back door man while they covered right. I'm sorry governor and presumably how wolf is talking about knocking on a girl's back door while her husband's way. But you know regardless that the with Jim had in mind. It's clearly not and it's it's very salacious book. I mean it's almost it's clearly written. It's full of pictures. I mean it's a great trade paperback. It's right up there with like Vince. Bugliosi's helter skelter as far as lurid portrait. Savell a the late sixties. But I mean do you feel like they went over the line and they were unfair to the artists or is this just the perfect way to summarize a pop phenomenon? You know as a librarian. I know a little something about biographies and This one reminded me of The fact that You know I was a children's librarian for a long time and we started Consciously WEEDING OUT BOOKS BIOGRAPHIES. That were fictionalized. In the way this book is so the way it's written it makes it more salacious than if it were just written in a more of a nonfiction style. Because they take they take interviews with people but they weave them in as quotes about a lot of the book is dialogue that either quote kind of quoted from People's interviews but not attributed so it makes it. If you weren't like a savvy reader you would be like. Oh yeah this. This actually happened this way. These people had this exact conversation. Which you know can't possibly be true unless it was recorded you know that. The person was in the room when the conversation happened. Because this is one person's telling of how the conversation went which obviously you know tinted and the way that person remembers it and that I think that adds like fifty percent to the salaciousness as you say of the book that it it reads like a novel really more than than a non fiction factual you know biography or remember. Jerry Hopkins had Written The book or manuscript Years before and had tried to get it published In was unsuccessful at it until he brought Danny sugarman to add Quite a bit of the Salaciousness First person type of accounts and to Shelley's point you know As we know memory is somewhat fallible and especially after a decade or a or so Where you know you you you begin to Mythology is your past and You know You know let's face it By by by this time You Know Morrison is a mythological creature and Sugarman S- memories are probably couched in clouded in those Those those external our responses coming to him You know And of course you know. Y- you know I think the Book Pa Proves the point in that Jerry Hopkins tried to get this sold? Nobody would sell it until they turned it into something more salacious palatable to You know a buying public And sure enough. It did the trick. Didn't it had sounded like reading the National Enquirer? I mean especially to the point of Danny sugarman memories. He was a teenager. Went along top. And right you know so like if I told you like dialogue that happened from when I was a teenager. How like how accurate would that be? So this is yeah. This is more like a like a magazine. Article Danny working with the doors when he was twelve right. That's crazy and so many scenes happened in the offices of the doors. And it's clearly. That's where he's interactive with Jim Novel up so I imagine you're twelve and Morrison is your body. What what the fuck would that be like? No even that's even weirder than reading this biography when you're twelve isn't being part of the biography twelve much much winner. Yes yeah yeah so so. There's some questions there but I mean I think to me. Ultimately it's a net positive for Jim in the doors because it it's a minute direction star. It did didn't it? Yeah there's that obviously gained the attention of Of Oliver Stone. Who went onto to make a film about? them which is also You know a debated On on there it's a good thing or bad thing But just like jam and and again I I I keep going back to to the fact that that Morrison himself was a complicated person He think of his upbringing with a rising star in the United States Navy At the time and You know The conservative family and those values and then the rejection of that To the point where where you are tried to eliminate the the history of your association with that family so I mean that tells you. I think all you need to know where to begin with WHO. This cat was and You know and he comes about right as this new you know Popular Art form is Beginning to really takeover the entertainment Airwaves and presents himself as the the dark Elvis Presley so I mean at all it all make sense to me. Yeah and as timing was so brilliant. I think it's very telling that that thing that triggered his cutting off communication with his parents was a letter. They wrote criticizing his concept of becoming a singer based on the fact that he never evinced any musical talent whatsoever which is totally reasonable thing for here to say but he was so confident what he was doing. It was just not going to Brooke and criticism as as a failed musician myself. I see. That's the difference between a successful musician. Failure is somebody who's like you know damn the torpedoes full speed ahead. I'm not going to hear any negativity. I'm going to associate with people that support my vision and I'm going to go for it and you know fuck you and the scene when his mom and younger brother do go to one of their concerts and he makes a point of screaming the lyrics of the end which other? I WanNa fuck you right in her face. I mean that had been completely shattering for her. I mean what would it awful thing to do and that she at that and that she even wanted to see him after that I mean she like tried to see him with his little brother and toe and he evaded her and he got everyone in the hotel and the concert. Venue to say. No gyms over there. No gyms over there and protect him from this horrible woman that had come to see him. You know in performance and withstood that that that situation happening to her and she still wanted to see her son and he never saw her again after that. Yeah it's very sad and to me it just reinforces you know this kind of success but commercially and critically comes at a high price and let me let me add that. A look I I. I don't think that a a singular letter Stating that Maybe you shouldn't go down this career path of would clause a quite a reaction. There had to have been a whole lot of shit behind that To get to this. Maybe maybe that was the straw that broke the camel's back but I think The The divorce to His immediate family was probably deeper than than than just A question his His ability as as a musician. The other thing that I might add is nate like like you I I i. I interviewed a lot of of rockstars and To your point Yeah I've heard over and over again that you know when you get right down to it. There was no plan B. I mean that's what you have to do to to be able to make their. There is only plan. A and plan. B. Is being homeless unless you make the Lenin school economics if you start off Not Yeah no plan. B. and also the Decides not brooking criticism and going with people that support. You is being able to withstand great discomfort and you know and not knowing what the future holds and not having any security that that stands out for me and all the biographies I've read is not carrying out security. Which is why I was never musician. You know let let's say let's say that that this this this is Anthony Mathu Anathema excuse me anathema to to the previous generation Who had had had to go through things like the Great Depression and World War Two You know and now here comes this generation of of of Americans who just given the middle finger to that whole world. That that those people you know quote unquote created. You know you know the the Corporate Society in the Organization Man and what have you You know they just said No. We don't have to live this way and I reject that And to the point of no I reject you as a person and knowing one. Cu anymore so there's a lot going on with with the the the interactions with his family that tells us a lot about who morrison was professor. I feel like we've covered the story of Jim. Morrison and the doors Christian Shelley. Thanks so much for coming on. You can listen to these guys on the Rock and Roll Librarian and rock and roll Archeology sorry for my pronunciation.

You know the drill real subscribe to our show and Rutta review really likely to hear. Now let's get into some music news man and this has been a busy few weeks every weekend. There has been a major event featuring music the Golden Globes the grammys as the Super Bowl. And this past Sunday the Oscars now every now and again the Oscars how some musical musical performances that are worth mentioning Lake John L. Monet's opening to the Oscars she enters into. What looks like Mister Rogers neighborhood? Fumbles where she takes off her jacket back in attempts to hang it on the coat hanger but it falls and she puts on her. Mr Rogers esque sweater. It was kind of a rough and nervous start but when she breaks into the into song singing come alive. The show comes alive. I'm sure not too many people recognize the loonies. I five on it sample but I did. Billy Porter joined her on the stage for a spectacular opening act. Cynthia irio commanded the the stage with a solo performance of stand up from the film. Harriet looking superfly in a gold gown against Brown skin with that super popped collar later. Acquired joined her. Billy Irish performed a cover of the Beatles yesterday during the immemorial segment like mint. Although it was reported that she would be singing her James Bond Song. The biggest musical surprise of the night was eminem. I know right. Did He have a song nominated this year. No but his eight mile anthem lose yourself wanted two thousand three. He wasn't present then but eighteen years later he certainly was present. He performed lose yourself in the audience lost themselves. In gave him a standing ovation ovation. It was a cool surprise. But I'm really not sure why it happened in Twenty Twenty Elton. John took home the Oscar for best original. No Song for. I'm GonNa love me again. From the rocket man soundtrack. He also performed the song earlier in the night with the full band. Now Saturday night in West Hollywood had an electrical musical lineup playing poolside. To three hundred fifty party party goers who had had gathered to celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of Morrison Hotel released in one thousand nine hundred seventy s the doors fifth record hosted by the sunset Marquees hotel which had a massive Morrison Hotel album backdrop on its wall and the Morrison Hotel Gallery a slew of surprise performers. Pay Tribute to the conic band including Miley Cyrus. Gary Clark junior the Struts Eagles of death metal singer Jesse Hughes Michael Bolton Dennis Quaid. They joined the doors guitarist. Robby Krieger four or right robby recruiter. Let's say robby Krieger and the Tanger- and the Blues Band for the ninety minute outdoor concert in concert okay so my apologies knowing the doors guitar how to pronounce his last name properly nor nor the blues band but obviously this way before my time so and John of music that was not played in my household but good news nonetheless so last week. I reported that Rapper Snoop Dogg spoke out against reporter Gayle King he is now addressing addressing. The backlash on Saturday snoop took to Instagram to clarify that. He wasn't looking for a fight with the CBS this morning host. He says here's a message for the people that need to know. I am a non violent person when I said what I said. I spoke for the people who felt lake. Gill was very disrespectful towards Kobe. Bryant and his family now with that being said what I look like wanted to harm what I look like wanting some harm to come to a seventy year old woman. She's not seventy years sixty seven because enough. I was raised way better than that. I don't want no harm to come to her and I didn't threaten her. All I did was said. Check it out you auto pocket for what you doing and we watch and you have a little bit more respect for Vanessa. Her babies in Kobe. Bryant's legacy. He insisted that he was only defending. Bryant's legacy so you to premier has a Docu series called seasons and in a recent episode featuring Justin Bieber and his wife Haley Haley. I explains explains that while she just both agreed that there were no rush to plan their Wedding Inc.. They also agree. That being married was important before taking the next step. We want it to move in together and we didn't believe in doing that until we were married so we got legally married. The pair got engaged in July twenty eighteen eighteen moving in together living together in getting to share space with each other in. Just keep learning more and more more and more about each other just took away all the pressure of the scary part of getting married. Healy goes on to admit that being a bride and having her dad walk her down. The aisle was something she always. He's wanted similar to what just also admits an earlier episode of seasons which is partly why they still had a formal wedding but but Haley also says they wanted to keep it. Small initial report said that there were one hundred and fifty four gassed and they want to keep it small and limited to people who had been very super involved in their journey and are still a part of their day to day lives right now. That was a very smart immature decision to get married before moving in there has been a tremendous amount of growth that I've seen in Justin compared to years ago when he was always in the news for some foolishness now John Fru sanity made his first appearance with the Red Hot Chili peppers since he rejoined the band at the memorial event. Put on by the Tony Hawk Foundation. The JAM session was in memory of billionaire. Ronald Birckel's sign Andrew. Who died last month at twenty six years old and was an avid supporter of the nonprofit? Now four spin offs of the rapper. Fifty cents hit star series. Power are in the works powerbook to ghost powerbook three raising Canaan powerbook for influence in powerbook book. Five force the network announced. The new shows a teaser which aired during Sunday's series finale of power. Now Mary J.. Blige as and method man will star in powerbook to ghost which was announced last share and is set to debut this summer powerbook three raising Canaan centers around the upbringing of fifty cents drug dealer character Canaan Stark. who was killed in season? Five powerbook four influence world will explore the political cool world of Laurenz. Tate's governor to be character. Rashad taint the Fifth Chapter Power Book. Five force this will focus on. Tommy Egan's goes partner in crime who trades NYC FOR LA. Now power was my shell. I used to get excited for what I call it power Sunday. Viewing the show every Sunday when he came on in the summers. This is kind of unusual unusual that they had this like the series finale in winter. But also say's finale was very out of recipe out of formula for how the rest of the series was but Yeah I would get excited for power Sunday and every Sunday when it was on my brother brother and I would watch it. However I still haven't finished this final season -ly my brother and I have not watched one episode together? I did see the very first one and with my cousin. I kind of cheated on my brother there but I was late like they gave away way too much in that first episode As far as what happened to ghost some way I know what happened to him. Why do I need to know the rest like the bay? The rest is basically who killed go. Slake was Dallas who shot Jr.. They basically took that his family. The first episode wasn't like intriguing being intriguing enough for me to be like. Oh I got to watch the next one. It was called though that at how they were going to focus on a different character each episode. But really there's only only certain characters I really cared about so anyways spinoff sound pretty interesting and intriguing king and I mean props to Curtis fifty cent you know for for producing the series because it was a hit it made stars. The network stars did not have The viewership that it had prior to I mean I watch outlander but I don't know to be people who watch our after I never got into was survivor's remorse. I know that was a good series but with with that alone like stars and not have the viewership until power came. So that really gave Fifty cent late legitimacy as in producer. I do Sir as an executive producer. He pretty much can do whatever the hell he wants. Now on stars which is why he has these five spinoffs coming out. Our four spin been honest but if you count power basically. He had five series based on based around the concept of power. So a WHO got the juice fifty got the juice who got the power fifteen so let's take a break and return with tour news and what's hot globally as well as can you releases.

The next share Morello Wilk Calmer Ford joined forces with public enemy public. Enemy's Chuck D in Cypress Hills. Be Real to form supergroup. Prophets of rage this twenty twenty rage against the machine will reunite for a global world tour. Now instead of our usual saywhat song lyric. I found an article on Spain. Spain entitled Thirty Five Best Bring up songs ever thought. It would be fun to go through. Since Valentine's Day is approaching so this feature is Etta James Nineteen sixty eight. I'd rather be lying and spin says the country saw stroll role of. I'd rather go blind initially laws. You but the enormity of the sentiment soon takes over as a singer is controversial tone deepens not pins and intensifies implying that she's lost in vast in bist she'd rather stare into nothingness S. forever then glance at the pathetic tears on her face in the mirror. So let's review these lyrics. Something told me it was over when I saw you in her talking. Something deep down in my soul said cry girl when I saw. It's all you and that girl walking out. I would rather go blind boy then to see you Walker for walk away from me child and all so you see. I love you so much that I don't want to watch you leave me baby. Most of all I just don't I just don't want to be free now. I just I just I just was sitting here thinking of your kisses in your warm embrace. Yeah when the reflection and a glass that I held to my lips now baby revealed the tears that was on my face. Yeah and baby we baby I would rather I would rather be blind boy. It's an then to see you walk away. See you walk away from me. Yeah Baby Baby. I'd rather be blind now. Now Edit things the hell out of our Song I was unfamiliar with it until now mm-hmm but it's something to add one of my platelets. Obviously it's not as popular as her at less but it's a great breakup song. It's actually so good that I wish it was longer. It's only two minutes and thirty five seconds long but you can catch her singing. Live in one thousand nine hundred seventy five on youtube now somehow. She stretches out a sweaty dramatic performance of that song to eight eight minutes and twenty seconds. she does a lot of saliva talking with the audience. Lot of going back and forth with the ban there stretches stretches where the band is just doing their thing given solo spots to the musicians It's that's that's a fun performance. I mean it's one thing. They hear the song in here to pain and just to hear her belt out. You know her sadness but it's another thing to watch a live like that woman could pull farm and I haven't really watched her live. I've heard her songs but to sit there and watch her late. She put on a show so I would highly recommend going in Youtube and checking that out you can hear the audience reaction. She belts out her lyrics in periodically talks to them And nothing you really get the full depth of the song when you see that will form. It's it's so that's it here at a time folks. I definitely appreciate your time. Thank you for listening to the GS MC music podcast brought to you by the Jesus Mc podcast network as always if you liked what you heard.

Do this the point is with many facets of today's. Technology we're going to be chasing it. Legally and spiritually. You know what I mean like we're. We're not. We're not going to evolve. Our brains aren't going to involve an legislators, not going to evolve fast enough to keep up with whatever's next tick tock whatever? PITCOCK. We've got a bunch of seventy year old people making laws who argue over everything and get nothing done. How would we possibly be able to keep up with all this shit all right? Let's talk you talk to the two girls that Danny masterson. Leaping masterson has had a rough time for a long time. There's a lot of girls of alleged rape. The two that I spoke to bet. Chrissy Karnal Bixler. These girls I really respect. 'cause they came out before me to not involved in that whole wave of girls who are trying to take down every man you know what I mean. And they really had their T.'s crossed, and their is dotted, and going up against scientology was brutal. They had their dogs kill proud of their property set on fire, being followed like Iran, the gamut scientology goes to every extreme, but I've heard that. Scientology's not going to protect masterson at this point. I don't think they're gonNA. Throw money good money after this guy because I think they know from what I've heard that a lot of these allegations are true, and they're more behind that so now that he's fired from the ranch and he's not a money machine anymore I think scientology is going to step away and let what happens happen. Scientology's a good example of when I yell at everyone. Stop apologizing to the mob as we talked about foreign. This show trailblazer I got a lot of. Trouble with them in the Mid Ninety, seven, ninety, six, nine, hundred seven, and they were sending me scripts the read on the Air Dr drew to apologize to send the other and people kept saying they will ruin you ruin you just do it. Just apologize. Read the script. Do what they tell you to do. They will destroy now. Of course, we all know that if everyone just stopped apologizing in one, thousand, nine, hundred, Ninety, seven simultaneously at once, there's nothing. Scientology could have done, but they didn't. They work they the way they work. As they work like a wolf pack, they break. They break off that Gazelle and. Chase him down there. Hyenas yeah, so if everyone just does everything at once like everyone's, you take political incorrectness. And all this woke vermin, said fuck you. We're not polishing simultaneously. Then the movement would go away, but if they break you off into pieces one by one by one then everyone apologizes then they build the power so. Nothing happened to scientology. They just got outed stop. To them, but they I was told they would ruin. You. Meet listen journalist back then, and the the threats of lawsuits were constant because I, wrote about them, but I never gave in to it. you know there were days where they said they going to be on this corner. They'RE GONNA protest. This and we got through it, but. They're not going to protect. He's he's going to. He's in trouble. Masters in trouble because it goes a lot deeper and I and I'll tell you when they when they really get into. This is GonNa Ashton Kutcher not that he's a rapist but Ashton. Kutcher was his buddy and they had the house in the Hollywood hills, and the girl would come over, and they take her phone away and she couldn't make a phone. Call and drink was dragged. We're talking about a white bill. Cosby with Danny masterson. Wow Bad. Simmons knowing. He has a target on his back as move to Thailand. After all the me, Shit just was too much to bear I go back to Russell many years. He's he's the perfect example of a guy that had so much power in New York because of hip, hop and rap. When everything blew up, Russell was from a, he started most of it. and. You know I I remember my ex girlfriend, who was very close to Russell telling me Russell's gotta be careful. He's really pushing with girls and at the time. It didn't register with me like we. Everybody wants to know ladies. That fucking big dude. He Rush Communications. But she's now it's different it's he's GonNa. Get in trouble, and now you come. You know twenty some odd years later, and this is what all the girls or some of the girls was saying that. You invited her up to the room for a record contract. Perhaps and you know. Maybe you gotTa do this to get on the air, but he was doing this sort of thing a lot. The big the big clue was when Oprah Winfrey. I think you know she. She got involved with the HBO thing. Have you seen it? I know we were talking about on the air a few last week that. That thing dropped on May twenty seven the night. All the rioting broke out and these guys including everyone in this building who pretty much in the demo of Hbo Hip hop over knowing that even heard of the. That's how that's how. You can't skate anymore than he skated on that. That was a that was a bomb drop that never no one ever lit the fuse, but he was losing for a year and a half before that two years before that, there was so many detonations before the documentary. He moved way before the documentary landed I. Mean Oprah Winfrey the women. If you're a Russell, Simmons Oprah Winfrey's goddess when she decides to do a documentary on your a rapist. You know you're in trouble does. Do. You think he ever comes back from Thailand. No, he just has all the money's GonNa Living Out in Thailand Brussels got money forever, and he's had money forever for a longtime. He always liked Thailand. It's not like it's a new place if he lands. It. Into a? FUNERAL DOES IT STATE? A one was at a three weeks ago. Maybe Oh, so it's not might turn into like a Roman polanski salvation. No, I don't think no because I. Know a lot of the girls that have come forward paid off. I. Don't think is GonNa. Do Time that sort of thing, but the girls who who who came forward and how what they had to say, some of them are really full of Shit, too. There were some girls who you know. God there are so many girls who have done business with them since then after they said I'm just going to go to court because I want to get paid, you know I didn't feel like I was treated right by you, but we still have a business together. There's a lot of shit man. Got You know when you're when you're wealthy at that age and it's in hip, hop and rap. God help those guys because there's so many creepy people that come into your life who allege rape not to say Russia's angel he he went overboard line many times, but there's some that he didn't need to to suffer from the just Harkin me back to this and you can tell me. Why would never worked but I sat here. Two years ago year and a half ago with mark arrogant sitting where you're sitting and saying hey, if I'm harvey, Weinstein. I'm leaving the country I'm just guessing up lear. Jet I'm going to France or go somewhere doesn't have extradition I'm leaving. and. Mark can't do that. I'm like why I said. Why is it got? His wife cuts squirrels ex. Girls over here I said honey wife management well. Sorry he said his family right. You know Blah. Blah Blah and I just said I. Don't know the way it's looking. This is two years ago, maybe a year and a half ago. Find a country that doesn't. We don't have an extradition treaty with gas up that Lear jet and get the fuck Outta Denver and he's like Hey Akkad do that but i. don't know sure the. People skirting the law obviously, but I'm saying fighting Ham. I went and had lunch Roman Polanski one, thousand, nine, hundred, seven in Paris. He was happy than the. Happiest guy the world wonderful. He didn't care about anything that was going on. Harvey would have been the same way and I bet he's still could have caused I produce movies because he has the special sauce in the magic potion to make movies ahead without putting his name on Shit. But he would have done it like some mob baugh. Troll this crime family from this join. I think so, but at the way it stands now. Let's not even get into the whole covid nineteen. Prison, of course, he is an and soon. Maxa, Patta somehow find that clip from two years ago, not for the second but me telling mark as I sort of meant it. We got a clip of riders on the storm from the block. Yeah, dangerous video the Andrea. Matt little video of. Robby Krieger. Dennis Quaid doing. Sorry. I. Can't. ooh! raised. Franklin is not playing. The drums in this age swapped out or Max Pattern, but you get it Franklin with drumming. When I got, there swapped out for guy, and then came back again, so he wasn't in that clip. That will throw it up, you The blog. Punish on Long Island never had that kind of quality. Sister play, but, not How about Howard Stern's GONNA probably walk when a serious contract ruin a few months i. think he will because. Look whole black face thing it goes deep with Howard because these then so many other things. It's not his fault. He did what he did during an era when that was permissible, but now canceled coach Jimmy Fallon Jimmy Kimmel good buddy I don't think he's taken time off to just hang out with his family. I think he's taking time off because he hates to hot. Did you see Jimmy Fallon's face the other night? When the chick WHO's the author of white fragility was telling him. How bad is what he did? He looked it was. It was so miserable. It s Jimmy in his room with no windows. This looking like yeah, like okay like he's talking to the fucking principal at forty something years old. He's not gonNA WANNA. have his job soon either. Who needs this shit? Money forever. Why do you need this I gotTa I. GotTa Tell You? I've always thought about this and I think we've all known about and talk about but just. We talked about it in terms of politics a few years ago. Like you're gonNA, take a lot of good men and women and have them go. Fuck you very much. I'M NOT GONNA put my family through this thing. I'm not going to be called I'm not going to people from high school right say I raped them in the gym in Nineteen, seventy in I don't WanNa put my family through it right I. Want to go through it right. Now we're GONNA. It's GonNa be the same thing I mean rally. Stars are always going to be there, but a lot of folks. Who are really talented creative folks? They're not getting to WHO wants to host. A late night shows once the host the syndicated this show that a lot of murders go fucking. Paint and the scary thing is now entered the podcast role Joe Rogan Joey Diaz mentioned something about how female comics when they wanted to earn a spot a good time on stage. Maybe they'd give head. And Rogan laughed seven years ago. That's been brought to the forefront now. It's GonNa. It'll go everywhere of course Gina. Question about that though when I think I mean. It's funny because I know that there they at least were friends back in the day and age A. You might have some extra insight when I think about Howard Stern. Wouldn't he get a pass? The way that trump gets a pass. It's Howard Stern. He, this is what we know who Howard Stern is. I'm not saying that I want Howard to go down at all. I'm just saying I know I. Love Howard and I love the president as the president. I think about it, but look you got to be consistent. If Joe Biden. Little girls hair and smell their fucking mouth and nothing happened to him. And Howard Stern can wear black face and Jimmy Kimmel can do this. You gotta be consistent got to be some kind of order around it so if you want to give power to pass because we all love Howard that's one thing, but. You GotTa at least address it. That's kind of what I mean the way this. Special Sauce of the president, being able to just say whatever he wants. Do it every once and everyone. Cheers it on, and it's like okay cool, so we're doing that now, but we're not doing that now, and you would think that Howard stern of all people would be so under whose like this is why we know who he is, this isn't. He's not part of canceled culture. He's not. He's not in that realm. Knowing Howard just knowing Howard this this hurts him a lot. That's why I think he won't be around when the contracts because I know that he's a really good guys, great father of that. I know this stuff affects him because off Mike. He's not like this, and that's why he changed his whole Shell, because he can't stand to look at them and listened to his all shows and see what he did, so it hurts doubly. Doubly much. Rephrase. Because, he knows that that wasn't the guy he wanted to be, but that's how he was and. Well the genus stern trump. Connection are analogy. I don't think trump gets a fair. To everyone hates him. He just doesn't care collectible. Save I mean it's not like he says something everyone goes. Oh, that's great. They go and ask all right. Yeah, but he's an asshole. That is the leader of the free world. Pass. Half the country doesn't like it, but. Not canceled in any way, shape or form, he's as close as you get to cancel without being canceled. The guys hooking aid is. They can't they try to impeach him. It didn't work they. They've been trying three and a half years. We'll get rid of them. Soon. As you just made this point? What's that? Try to impeach him didn't work. They've been doing everything how that. Jay who the guy. The only part I, my only quarrel with genus points. He says whatever he wants and everyone cheers him. He says whatever he wants. And half the nation hates him and the other half likes him same with Howard Stern. Howard doesn't have that back. You can't have. Are you kidding I turn on CNN? Watch for half an hour of just trump's that do show lots nonstop. Couldn't. With. Twenty five years ago when everyone every Howard was the king, he was the king of all media and everyone listening because everybody wants to know what he was going to hear here's here's the deal. As far as I can tell, it's a ratio. It's a ratio thing. If ten percent. Of Society is calling your Douchebag, an asshole and a racist and homophobic, or whatever, if it's ten percent, that's a lot I mean like I get called all those things, but I'm lower than ten percent if three million ever starts getting close to thirty or forty percent. That's nervous breakdown. And Stern is a genuine insensitive guy off the air and five percent to him is. A Lot Howard trump can take fifty three percent. That already like that's the different already like him to take the amount of shit and Jimmy sensitive to Jimmy. That guy is well, so if you get. Ten percent. When you go online. That's terrible. It's a lot of cats, a lot of people, so I think of it more like a percentage breakdown. Like. For instance really click show picture online after his I. Don't know how you feel but like. We have Republicans conservatives have not been on offense for a long time because of the pandemic. Trump does Tulsa thing, and it's finally like God. That was a horrible inning. We the other team scored fourteen runs. Now we're coming to VAT trump. Does this thing in front of whatever seven thousand people is supposed to be one hundred thousand and they just? Him He didn't get anybody. No one showed up and John Patel, shows picture of one lonely creep in the upper raft is holding a sign. Make America great again. Meanwhile Biden's got six people around fucking basement, and it's like you see lose. Trump is you can't truly motherfuckers. He's not a loser. He's he's. He's just about to start his offensive attack well. That was a private event for Philadelphia Business Owners for business. I got up Brian Private, a private event for trump business owners would have been fucking jam-packed, not since people send via part no way. Might be true, but that's not a good example now. Okay, it's not the whole stadium competitive and know what the. Thing wide looks ridiculous with the fucking crooked mask in the basement. Even. His appeal for money starts out. I'd like to ask you for for a question. What can somebody say cut and do it again his whole thing? I don't think he's going to be there when they get down to the election I, think he's going to walk away and someone's going to be put to the front well well, you know. Trump is begging him to to do a town hall or a default. You'd be destroyed. It's not even fair now. Trump is trump is turning into a up comedian. There it is his is doing. Is it an act? His rallies and our a standup show. Yeah all right so something. Gina said reminded me of a scene I sent it to. Chris got the link a scene from. Private Parts and alleged back in the day you know people hated him as much as they liked them and I the scene where they're going with the ratings and Paul Giamati is of. How do we will listen and it turns out that the half the people are more or less than because. They hate him and they want to hear what they'll do next. That's yeah that was picked by. How much drawn for exact? It's so funny. I was just quoting that scene because a real well when I took over for Howard Stern, baby, doll Dixon said to me Hey Howard Stern. The people hated them. Listen to him longer than the people that like I said. That's from the movie baby. Tree Pollux, who hate Tom Leykis. Don't listen to him. No are the people that light up then people hate Dennis prager. Don't listen to him more avenues. A good seen an immediately, but I've been next the bolt of you. Incentive, I was very fortunate for that, and there's no comparison about what people think about you and your style and what they thought about how it. They loved Howard, but there are people who've vehemently hated him well here but I think here's what is long as drilling down on the fine the minute Shahir. In the past the people that hated Howard Stern where the evangelical and in the soccer. MOMS, and the Pearl Collectors, and the those folks you know what I mean, Tipper Gore Right WanNa put warning ounce on two live crew records, and things like that and I can tell you as A. Personality when those types are right writing letters calling you Satan. It doesn't mean anything. They're crazy religious. Yeah, they're angle. Their Comic Book Characters Your Mind. The problem that we're talking about with stern is in the black face. Those are your own now. This is what's going on with the movement. It's your own star income after you. You can't go to cocktail parties with your own friends anymore. Stern wasn't going to go to any cocktail parties. Then any crazy right to lifer evangelical whatever and we've all anyone's had a career is always. Look, it's it's the same with scientologists. scientologist hated me. I looked at him as a bunch of Wackos now, but that's not the same as your contemporaries. were. Ears Vance now sudden. Hours new friends for the last whatever six seven years old Hollywood liberals who've come to love him and go do show and they have. And how how does it look for them to have their king in black face? When they canceling everybody else right so I that's the difference, the their religious nutjob part or the old people that you know your mom's friends who don't think you're funny because I think you're vulgar or something like that it's it's when the people you respect or the people that are sorta inspire own groom, which is what's going on universally start coming after you then then it's tough. Yes, all right. Let's take ourselves of break, and then we'll come back and do oh, AJ. Boy Legend. Sir called that, so we don't get sued.

Drinks are here to remind you to take a breath. Have a drink and wait for all shit to be over. Mahalo. Break. All those crazy trump tweets. G. grads drop. Downs. LOGIN. The news with Gene Grad. Just to touch on it a little bit more because it was truly the big news over the weekend so there we all know there was a trump rally in Tulsa Oklahoma big big headlines over the weekend, and would looking at some of the emptier shots from the from the arena. Know, after he said there was going to be a million or VP's now and AJ. I'd love to know if you have any insight on this. The rumor is and that's truly all I think we can call it at. This point is speaking of Tiktok the rumor. Is that base young young people I don't know teens, Xeni ills whatever coordinated this effort to just. Gather up all of the free tickets they could online for the event and just not show up so just to kind of charge I heard. I would embrace if I were the White House, because the White House of course is saying absolutely not the media's making that up and it's it's. It's B. S, but wouldn't I mean that's more satisfying answer than just. Look if you're the New England Patriots and people are taping your practice sessions. It's good. They know that you you've got what it takes. You got the special sauce. There's a lot of factors fucking pandemic people can watch the rally on TV. His is not twenty eight to forty one. It's a little bit older sold or than the. Demo I would say. I watched it at home i. mean if I lived two hours away, I don't think I'd go either. But when I saw the Tiktok Patriots were the wanted, always tip tape and other teams. Okay Fuck. They were the ones that you're. Got Excellent Right. I agree with Gina this. If this is viable, then then do it. It's like David Hasselhoff always had his big pay per view. Calm music, special from strudel door the way through the stray Lemme happened your car. Day The OJ. Slow speed, chase right always just blamed it on. The slow. God Damn it pay per view probably purchased. A week in advance say it's probably not all like a spontaneous of it was banking on the walkup crowd right? Yeah, man, but I gotTa tell you. I'd go with this to go. Dot Guy Brian! You're right. It was an act he he's. He's got A. He's got BITs. He did what you don't want. EMINEM did on eight mile while you made fun of your own crew and say yeah. This guy is an uncle. Tom And this guy did shoot himself in the balls. He did that with his own. They say I've got Parkinson's as head can't drink water they. He's taking steam out of what he knows is going to happen. I got a kick out of it. I think it was fun. To what age as referring to not only did he devote a good chunk of time to why it was tough, walking down a ramp, but he also. He also wanted to make sure everybody knew under no uncertain circumstances he can drink water with one hand, and the crowd goes wild. Check this out. And Another. Four. And That got a big applause break and by the way I have to throw this still up so quick plug I- Patton Oswalt God bless him it keeps re tweeting, so that's why it was such a big deal, but my fiancee Andy did the entire two hour speech in live time with an earpiece as emperor palpitation from Star Wars. Here. Trump saying you're more than welcome to hear. Andy on twitter it's it's an hour and fifteen and. I'm proud to say I emperor palpable. I didn't bring a clip because it would mean nothing to you. That's I. Texted Brian so the last the last thing that was sort of interesting about this that the news media of course is picking up on both sides. With two very different perspectives, patine sounds like laxative for late. This is. For the women you know they'd like penned up eighteen for the gentler for the woman's. System not hands that little. Pouch little, little bulge. Forest is not so fresh. Yeah, and they showed A. mockup a bottle, of Alpha. Tankers. Released A mouthwash? Yeah, something like that Yes sir. The big the other big thing that the people are still sort of holding onto like a dog with a bone is a joke. Question Mark. He made about an one side said it was a joke. Once I'd said it was an admission about slowing down and withholding corona virus testing Oh. His the bad part. When you test of what you do testing to that extent, you're going to find more people. You're gonNA find more cases. So I said to my people. Slow the testing down, please. They test test test. People don't know what's going on. We got we got another one over here. I. Does he I've seen him do this a bunch. He has his point way off book, and then he goes on then he goes on what he thinks is sidebar gin and then, but as a comic. You're on stage. You know you're GONNA. Do you have it in your head? You know how far you can go away. How far you can stray, but he's like. He's in in the parking lot in the highway away from where you gotta to get back to the joke, right? I mean obviously he's not a skilled stand up comedian buddy, starting to get good on his feet, and he's and he's working the COP. Look, here's what's happening. What's happening is? When you see a eulogy, anyone, you know, we've all been event win, so you? You put Mike in Someone's hand. You put you put a captive audience in front of them, and before you know it. Some jokes are coming out right. It's a natural default setting. Works and then Hall Hall of fame induction. Eulogizing you take a rabbi and have a married couple that fucking rabbi doing America next one minute. Stand up routine. You know so. It's like most the time with most. Especially, especially, if you're New York guy like he is, you put the Mike in the hand. You know the best man speech. Turning in your comedy routine, he starting to turn into a STANDUP, said three years since the higher of a comedy writer because I think. That three years ago, a lot of things you said would be so much more to the point and actually funny. Instead of okay re dial it back, Donald. You'll way off. Yeah, but anyway, maybe you partner. For Donald Trump. Yeah, that was. The other the other story that evolved over the last. Forty eight hours was deal. H- Yooglie. Headlines, the first headline was deal hugely passes out on stage at Zanies in Nashville by the way, and I had a clip of that, but I mean you could see it you. He does start to kind of not make sense, and then you'll see 'em tip a little bit in someone. Come and grab him so it's it's about thirty seconds I was on stage. Saini's. Response Standing. LEWER member. These. Were immigrants. Older. Who is that WHO's? Holding to night do. I was at Saini's last week. fucking a waitress in the bathroom. He wasn't looking out for my personal well-being. I recognize that guy. White lives matter. I by a couple things I was watching this thing and I was like I was just on stage. It's Amy's I. Don't know where my spotter was where my spotter. Who is that guy? Do you all have one? Because no, not always like sitting down, and he started to slur words a little, but it took all of seven seconds with that guy to hit the stage. That could have been part of the act I don't know. Something in his eyes. Nose actor. He knew him because he just responded pretty great. Yeah, so then D. L. Hughley. Put up this long instagram posts, but I'll I'll just sort of boil it down for you. He said that he did a battery of tests. They say it was exhaustion and dehydration. He said was very dehydrated and Oh yeah by the way he's positive for covid nineteen, so he said he's quarantining in his hotel room for two weeks after he leaves the hospital and that's his situation. How those are related? Who knows you know he? He made it sound like I was completely asymptomatic this a total. Total shock, so he doesn't feel that those things were related, but oh, by the way I'm also positive I don't I like to know. He's a black guy in his fifties. Probably has autoimmune situation plugged thing artery thing they all do they all do? A lot of black guys have a blood thing and they just do it is a lupus situation their family and then trust me. Look into you. Deal lease medical history I bet there's something that you go always fits the well. He always seemed in good shape, and when I hear dehydration what it sounds like this sounds weird sounds weird. Exhaustion always seems weird to. Is. Always going to rehab for exhausted using those words because you know who's exhausted. Take a plane there. You get a glass of water you. I listen I get I've been on that hamster wheel travel and drink it all too much on the plane and I get it. Is that exhaustion not for me, but you know. Who knows, but the point is is he's okay. A lot of people are speculating that. I set the comedy bar so high the week before he had to struggle so hard to try to clear the bar that yeah that that that's what the exhaustion came. A week after Corolla can't sleighs. Them can't that. Are you kidding me? Gentleman. I was going to say it's like Hey. Ron Jeremy was your last boyfriend. I'm the new kid in town coming in. A hard manhood. The Guy Today. Sorry, what was he seated in the front row was hovering. We tell from the footage. I didn't know what to look for. It looks like. There's a door. So, so there's a door right off the stage. Just, another right out a picture. Right out of the shot we're looking at. There's a door to the right. And sometimes the manager, the owner he would stand by the door Kinda noticed him just standing by the door sort of enjoying that the show, so I think that. That's that's what we're seeing here again. My hunch is that guys. He's on the payroll deal. He knows him obviously, and he knows what to look for me to work out the word salad that was coming out of his mouth, and started teeter totters on look like it sounded like a stroke. Probably seen a few COMEDIANS in his day. You Get up there and less than perfect shape. And, that was in Asia. You're absolutely right. Because that was the first report over the weekend that it looked like he had a stroke onstage, and then TMZ and everyone said you know here's his own instagram post that I watched. Dehydrated. Look scared. I you know I'm not making fun because it's petrifying. He looked scared when he said I'm positive for Calvin. Thank everybody for their well wishes and he said it a little more wouldn't wouldn't hurt. He's scared. Next story well, we have just a whole section of take this statue down. Get rid of this. Is, and we just we have to do it. It's just some good so these. These two are my favorite and I think Brian Might. Get himself onto change dot org immediately after I say that's not no, there is a city. We're all familiar with Columbus. Ohio and they have vowed to bring down at statue of Christopher Columbus. But thousands are hoping to erase the city's connection to Columbus completely. One hero one brave man has a suggestion to honor a native from Columbus and rename the town to flavor town. Riley. Oh. So Columbus Mayor Andrew Ginther announce earlier this week that the statue outside City Hall would be removed in place in storage, but for this Guy Tyler Woodbridge. Who spent over seven years of his life in Columbus? He said that's not enough. He's thirty two.

That's how we are in this country right now that we're in it, but we're just kind of do whatever we want. There's no real rules it's like. I'm watching the news the other night. They're pulling down a giant bronze statue. Other cops are over there. These guys got ropes and skateboard. Pulling nine felt solid bronze statue on top of. I mean by the way they could reach. Well one guy was crushed, right? You want to put a fucking patio on in Your House in Glendale. You gotta go pillow. fucking permit because it's safe for you to do whatever the cops are over here. The kids got ropes around this thing like the little push in Putian there fuck and Gulliver's travels or pulling the guy down there. Cheer once. The guy gets wants to statue mixed to the ground. They're squirting lighter fluid all over. The cops are over there. Yeah, they're just standing there watching them. Guys are lighting cigarettes like through their masked. From the fires that they're burning on you go to the beach. You light a fucking sparkler and Santa Monica you get arrested what the fuck is going on! It's this whole point where it's like well. The cops don't want to agitate anybody well. Let me tell you something. They got the message. The cops ain't doing shit. and. Look say whatever you want about the the statues. What they're doing is insanely dangerous and we would never let anybody again. You can't bring a bottle to the ballpark. It's too dangerous. You can't have your dog on the off Leash Park it's too dangerous. Everything is who dangerous. You can't drive to the corner without putting your seatbelt on. You're going to get a ticket, but drunken craze mobs hauling down bronze statues with fucking ropes, and the cops are just stand there and then lighting them on fire. Just squirting night or fluid everywhere guys weren't flipflops flops like throwing matches at it, and then guys are dropping packs of of firecrackers throwing. The cops are just like, were there. You gotta find that footage of them. It's a bronze statue. I was watching. CICERO The statue of CICERO. Maybe it was a bearded of probably at a rally, probably a civil war guy but. They pull it down and they lit it on fire Teddy Roosevelt's coming down outside the museum history. That's coming down. Yet. Also, correct you know I I wanted to. Know who? Mean who else. Can you Bama's fucking statute. Come down wherever that is we. Don't know million years. You wouldn't guess this. The only reason is because they just said that was. The mayor of I believe it's pronounced Lester in England has responded to see another change or or visit a petition calling for the removal. Gandhi. Commission has gathered over six thousand signatures. called the famous nonviolent protesters, fascist or racist tennis predator. A similar pushing Manchester called for Gandhi statue to be removed. He's due to his quote. Well documented anti-black races I wanna say this. If Ghandi's coming onto you sexually no means now you could, you could flip that guy also Gandhi. If you got a if you got just like a dish, town snapped. He'd go run in the other direction. Allio. Yeah he was celebrating. Even if he was a muscular guy, he's nonviolence. Talking Towel. That's the thing you have that Franchi, war, which is very easily removed and he could expose himself Kristalina. What do I know? Here's the here's the thing. There needs to be a kind of a simple set of rules here which is. Everybody there's an interesting biblical passage which is like as I told you guys that know was a good man by his generation or according to gender. So what they do, is they? They They grandfather you in that go by the Times. He was a good none of us are going to be good I times because we meat eater, you're right, you eat meat. Fifty years from now will be murders because we had salisbury steak. But by our time, we're considered good good good people so first things first we can only go by the generation that you're in. You can be bad in your generation that you be Pete Rose Charlie Hustle. He was the great. He's like he was the greatest baseball player. On the vitamin B, but do, but here's my point. You get a statue after you for a few things you don't. If you're a latch, but we do the statue because you one World War Two for us, and that's what the statue represents. Not You chasing skirts right? It represents you winning or helping win world, war two that statue. That's the whole thing everyone now look you make. You can't make a statue of Hitler because Hitler number one thing. Yeah was exterminating Jews. If your first thing is winning wars and liberating nations, or whatever and your second thing is banging your secretary doesn't then we'll? The statue. Thing. This whole thing began when they tried to change the statue of the three three soldiers of four soldiers, raising the flag at Jima to let's put a black Asian in there. They weren't there well. Let's just get him in that statue. It's GonNa look better down the road, but they were in those. They didn't lift the flint I know. It's just we're here now. I you know. I, like statues that are bronze, 'cause. It's hard to even tell the ethnicity of of. There's a statue in Beverly Hills. That I've said for years. It's very. Statute is it like a man with a little boy next time every time I drive by on the lawn yeah. His son sunset. I don't like that statue. Let's get. The subject I want to take fucking chef boy is an Italian man chef, de and Mama Celeste get them out of the fucking shoot. mangams Olive Garden Burnham down because no Italians eat there. How far we're GONNA. Go with this, Hey! Michelina the frozen dinners. That's statues right on sunset before the play. The left very weird while it's on the left depending on. which way you're? Mansion I believe that's on the like it. We have the statue of its General Pike I. Don't know who, General Pike Albert Pike in the second half. And at the fifty second video the pulled. Wow, one rope one rope I mean that's things bronze. It's up twenty feet in the air. Does that two hundred think? Oh I? Don't know it solid. Works, but at least it's. It's got A. Outweigh I think they just thought the angle, but the point is in a world of safety. The cops just intervene just in the name of fucking safety. Then they start sweating it with lighter fluid. And then they light it on fire that just squirting it, but at some point guys electrolyte their cigarettes and the concert, just standing standing by my buddies copy or plays me the The transmissions from cops and and the desk and They don't want to get involved like there's gang shooting. Let him shoot. Let him just leave them alone. Let them let them take each other out. They don't want to respond to these things anymore. Because there's no upside guy who caught d.l Hughley on the side of the stages, his own paid secure. I knew it I. Know I still WanNa know why deal Yooglie security wasn't. All Brain Chris del Rey. Now Yeah. My Guy wasn't there you got. question for you I? Totally down with your your your notion that this this dossier was up for this thing winning a war, or whatever it is the great thing you accomplished, and there may be some skeleton in your closet whatever you end up at a great guy, but the is for this great thing. Does your opinion change when it comes to confederate statues I think so because I don't know what we're celebrating. I mean I I now in general, my feeling is. There's always bigger fish to FRY, so let's go build another school, or whatever let sleeping dogs lie but I, don't I? Don't have the same obviously. Confederate generals versus George Washington much different feelings on on those those types and. Stay away from Bob's big boy. FONZIE IN MILWAUKEE. With Manual Fahd's? He's right off the river, so he could eas-. Easily make it in the river. That's not. Under size Henry winklers not a big man. This is smaller than even. Six inch statue can take angry.

Even if you're in the town, if you're actually a representative rolling ankle on your way up the stairs like whatever it is, he's ice and himself down. He's in the lobby. You can't get into that situation the best best case scenario. You're bored off your ass for two and a half hours. That is the best guys go, but you guys on Mike veteran. Veteran a career campaign.

He threw himself down the gangplank, so we could go into the hospice. Because he knew he wanted to the prison he'd he'd be killed.

It's raining is doing both over here in California. You know, this is our winner not complaining because it could be it could always be worse. So everything's good. So today episode eighty two I'm is you can review is the doors with their fiftieth anniversary new special edition of waiting for the sun and Neneh cherry or excuse me, as she calls herself. It's to say properly, which I learn why listened to the record Neneh Neneh cherry her new albums, car broken, politics and binary star. Their new record was one of to just do a one today. Call it ears apart later on down the line this year. We'll do the other album called lady. So once we have classic rock and roll. I'm going to say indie. Soul and hip hop. So there we go. So let's get it. Let's get to it going to start off the review with a binary star. So of course, as you guys are ready. No, I love to read to you guys like to give you some background information on on the artist, especially if it's something that I've review for the first time or an artist that never review before with all of you here. Golden State media concept's GMC. Yes. So we're going to get into that. So binary star discovered. This new record got it off a band camp. So. The cover is interesting is it's a black background with white like silhouettes shadows. Silhouettes? It looks like it's the last supper. But everyone is like why in the sense that they're white? You can't see their complexion. This just white almost almost as it's almost as if these are illustrations waiting to be colored that makes any sense. So that's how the artworks looks very very fast. Any I didn't really think about until just now. And with this. With this. So, but you know, it looks like it has Jesus leaning over to talk to someone and there might be like a keyboard on the dinner table. So it's like a whole different type of take off the last supper, but I I like the artwork. It's kind of almost looks like safety belt dummy illustration versus comic book in between with the ration- the way it's done. Also hip hop. Graffiti ish, kind of artwork is it's like a mixture of all those things when I look at the yard work. But they they're all white like says almost like they're waiting to be colored in. Sitting at the table, and you and binary star is in red letters in the top Ryan corner. Contrast to the black background behind him. Yeah. Here's apart and ears isn't red letters spic Brett letters in the parts in like orange. Orange big letters. So. There that is. So me your so so now, let's. Let's get into who binary stars. So binary star equals people. Where people will listen to lighting in Ayers, apart and think it's one album, but reality is to albums that revolve around each other. And that's how they shine. Which is the same definition that one below aka women army the Lee rapper from my new star. Describe the group by star. So the two headed dragon one below awesome women arm, you might star breathes fire blows flames. So by stars hip hop project by rapper one below and formerly duo with rapper cinem- Seila. So it was the two of them who's the other half about her star? They formed in nineteen ninety eight the pair met and formed the group during their time in hiawatha correctional facility. So they were in jail. Yeah. That's what that means. Byron stars debut effort Waterworld great album. Excellent underground hip. Plastic was produced on a five hundred dollar budget and released in nineteen ninety nine under the label terrorist records. That's quite interesting extensive tour. Michigan follow as both members of the duo were on parole and were not permitted to leave the state. See? Yeah. You never hear that story. You. The purpose behind the album was to raise money for real album, which later became masters of the universe. Binary star switched from terrorist records, thank goodness to septa Subterraneans records terrorist records might be. Nice label, but I'm just not feeling that name at all. So I'm glad they left that that label and name bind. Yes. Okay. Moving right along. So. Yeah. Buyer stars which to train his records released masters in the universe. This was essentially a remixed version of Waterworld, but garnered more attention selling twenty thousand copies that my mind you that's with no airplay. No, major radio supports independent hip. Hop group doing that out of Michigan. Pontiac michigan. Basically, however, the pair were not getting along particularly well and citing creative differences binary star was disbanded they reunited briefly in two thousand two doing a concert together at Middlebury college in Middlebury, Vermont, that's cool. But it did not record any new material binary star got together in late two thousand nine or two thousand ten to tour while the spots being Salt Lake City Utah. I hate I miss that. But I've never I've seen one below solo. But I've never seen binary star. Okay. Let me finish over here. Digressing? Let's get to a capture heath show. Let's see what believe off at. Yeah. The group reunited in two thousand twelve and announce it was working on the EPA. Tencent tentatively title light years apart, which was to be a prequel to a fully fell PM on March. Twenty ninth though, two thousand thirteen binary start released its first album over thirteen years Celtel EP as a celebration of its fifteenth anniversary as duel. Okay. So did do that with him. Okay. So themselves co host the for really show with lifelong friend and shade forty five DJ rude, Jude as of March two thousand fourteen themselves retired from using. Okay. So he retired. Okay. As of two thousand sixteen though Byron stars making music again with four dates in may in southern California and Colorado, they appear in Salt Lake City Utah in for the slick sound. For twenty weekend. But that was two years ago. Okay. So. On june. Second two thousand seventeen one below released Waterworld three under the binary star name their thirds to album the album featured multiple rappers Philipson themselves spot, including mahogany Jones. She's great waiting for a new album from her. So we can review it. Mike Phelps Man-kai the album was produced by decompose who produce most of mass in the universe and women army. Okay. And the true definition of binary star is two stars that revolve around each other. They may appear to be one. So there you go. So that's a good background on binary star on one man army, aka one below. And I believe he has started my one below because there was a punk group or punk group. Call him in army and send them Salah if I'm saying his name ripe. So. So there you go. So now, let's get into the record the one that we're going to be today years apart. So the first track on the album is called big Dipper features say and Courtney Wheaton, peck, it starts off with Pano and Tiffany foul by dish. No, drums. A woman is doing spoken where it with the saxophone playing in the background. And there's a sample of woman talking about mother nature, actually. I was going to tell you more than I forgot to me. But you pick up the record. You're here I'm talking about. So let me go further into it. So the Russian changes as you can hear rain in the background with Congo light percussion with the whistle rhythm in the background the baseline is faint. But steady the contract sound base. Navigate the song. This trek has has an organic afra- central feel to it to its production one below for by star has a voice that is distinctly conversational within hip hop with a hip, hop journalist news anchor field to it at the same time. That is with Mick soulful and Jhansi the song is about the mistreatment of mother nature. Mother earth. The songs also about the corruption of man, especially big business and the American government. He cites donkeys and elephants and one of the purses referring to Democrats Republicans, of course, so. And his lyrics from this track. Went to this. Check is big Dipper. So featuring say woo. In quitting Weeden pack about I'm say what's name, right. If I'm not forget me interesting. So his lyrics verse one it's rain and thunder. Sometimes it makes you wonder how the streets can be a jungle designed to take you under some different excuse me, some many different jerseys with numbers above hundreds. It could be the same color that don't make you a brother. Let me I'm gonna backup and sit at again. So this more conviction in my delivery, some many different jerseys with numbers above hundreds. It could be the same color that don't make you a brother. We call them nurture mother, and we claim that we love her. But all we do poison her and Raipur and take from her bulldozer Range Rover terra get rained on her. So that's not good. Not at all. Break-up and make up metropolis makeover lay on her. Second Mafa my computer. Break-up makeup metropolis makeover laid on her the plane spray on her them all tanks. Leaking them stains on her that nuclear waste, stay in her. Shame on them brothers. Censor who'd be running that game on her tank on her Bank on her cell space orbit gain on her claim her corners and making harder than lava even the farmers got to pay for the water. I hate nor waiting on them. I'm H two oxygen. If you're living God or godless, you need it, regardless. I promise verse to you ever considered water, fountains were colorless white light this come on top where all the bubble sit donkeys elephants seated in the government, they could give a damn damn the rivers running and flooding sh or Shosh the real movement as dark waters and women's lib sub ships bent out of shape, don't get the Reuters fixed its getting deep circus clowns get dunked in it. Learn to love swimming, just in case, I gotta jump in it the giant issues. Get sunk in it. It's not exactly Titanic but enough to make a sponge, bigger, heart stuff and toxicants and drunk spirits, alcohol and drug business ring around the tub children, you blow the whistle and make the call. It's double triple travel where the thunder, never rumble drizzle putt. L A little humble simple cleaner face with her mother spit. Well, her sister add water to the bucket list, another rance another lip my tongue spit. A flow through the pipes and ducts funnels with gutter lyrics, wet the appetite hooky with mudfish excuse me hooky with the mudfish. Pull a sink stopper. But the lead was don't budge. Did it the progeny of Adam and his front rib, Bismarck siblings? But you say he just a friend. You heard us like Noah, you probably think we was twins. The only the only thing thicker than water blood is. So that's the first song and he's just going off about. Corruption in politics and government, and the way we abuse mother nature. So of course, this is not going to get put on the radio. But what what rapper talking about the environment rapper talking about defending, mother earth and mother nature. Wow. Okay. Isn't that? Nice. Yes. It is. So that's just the first song. Jimmy, Jim in I featuring Jason bury it starts off with keys that sound robotic and rhythm as Jason Barry softly sings. And I wish I knew how to describe his voice is just. It's like it's similar to Michael McDonald's. Kind of a mess to close as I can get to it. It's kind of. And I see that as a compliment hearts to scrap his voice, but it's just very soulful. And it's very distinct when you hear it like my doubts, very distinct similarities, not the exact same. But they're in the same type of round. There is similar more about this song after this break. Always on the go. But the day just be one without your Hollywood, Golden State media concepts that are ten podcast take care of that all inclusive look of pop culture. Once again, you listen to GMC's music podcast. This is captain Keith. And we are currently reviewing the new buttery Starbucks called years apart. And we're under the second check. I wanna talk about Jimmy Jim in is. So that's Jim nine the word spelled G M. I in I and then space G E M, and then I in E Y Petri and Jason Barry. So let's get I was talking about how his voices it's hard to scrap. She was very soft. Very cool. It's similar to Michael McDonald's voice, Debbie. Debbie, weather's fame and solo fame not the same. But in that realm, the the deep -ness of voice. So this starts off with keys the sound about with them so same before. And as Jason Barry softly, sings the synth bass is faint imagines the robotic signing keys from the intro. The percussion is minimum minimal excuse me. Jason Barry's vocals and the bass anchor the song. There's also sample of someone singing. No, we're gonna make it tonight that sound vocal repeats in the background to most of the song. This song's about one below falling in love, basically. Here's a the lyrics all aboard, the love train leave betray reason. Perfect strangers and companions in the same evening from the first day seeing. Now, I can't explain still can't believe beauty sleep in while. I'm daydreaming pinch of cinnamon wake up. The again love stories never end is time to use. My Pentagon hundreds of rhymes. I was anxious to bus nowadays when we touch by scared and such taking care of your health. How you live how you carry yourself. How we enjoy the Sam books on the shelf plus a leather face you make when I when I when your ear be like, even when I'm kissing you. I'm being sincere. That means even when we kick it in the in the scene or the crib got me buzzing, author smile. I don't need me. A beer connected mind over matter. We don't need to be here. Why fight it? Why fi? When the signal is clear. Lever? Like that second verse my mind puzzled I was incomplete. But little did. I know you were the missing piece not a sweet snack more like a dinner feast lady in the streets and the jungle she a different beast saw discreet her lifestyle. No deceit. Many overlook she's an open book, and they don't read once upon a time. Let me proceed slow speed in between the lines. Let us go deep. You know, how rare it is happy ending narratives fares wheel spinning and got nothing in comparison a heart afflicted want. Guided by missing the excuse me, a heart afflicted once guarded by missile defenses. But neither one of us believe in coincidences. Don't judge the book by the cover or skin. It's only alive. Oh, my. Though, see when the heart is in a thousand percent, you inspire lovebirds to follow the wind. The Queen of Sheba inspired songs by salmon's pin? Yeah.

The last supper Nova when I was re if you in this wreck and listen to the song, I was misreading the title. I thought it said the last supernova, but no it's the last supper Nova. So this the last time talking about on this record. So it starts off with a very smooth, piano Entra while father and son have a conversation about a book in the background. You can hear someone in the background harmonizing. The piano intro actually becomes a mainstay rhythm throughout the song. An anchor song. The jumps have a basic snare kick drum cymbal combo rhythm. There are various focal samples in the song as well. There are place in a way that add to the song's narrative. This song seems to be about Jesus being a superhero. Cape crusader. It's also about loved ones. Lost in hip. Hop light shade Dylan by ten. From slum village binary star uses very clever bible references to make that point including books from the bible. So. And here's the lyrics. Something's changed. Something's remain the same since the old school new James as as he flew through the pages. He turned into a Cape crusader. Now, he's often as new thing. He's the Cape crusader thumper thumper thump thump thump thump thump thumper thumper verse one and they're not not. Apparently that was the course. So.

My revelation part of my Hebrew because I basically left out ecclesiastic hashtag bible. I wonder how long it took those lyrics. Wow. So binary stars. Here's a part. Is a hip hop record with things on mortality, redemption. Religion obsession. Give me one second here. Now, I forgot about it. See if he. His touring. It looks like. No, he's not. He's not Tim. Okay. Just wanted to check on that. No worries. So we leave off it. Okay. So. Yeah. But I don't know stars is a part is a hip hop record with things on my tally, redemption religion of session, mainly female, groupies space and time environmentalism corruption of lash politics and the non glorification of crime one below has picked back up by their star mantle. He makes its sore some of Belo's there can't be a little too shocked times. But that is the lesser not the greater otherwise his dual symbolism provides a compelling narrative. I really enjoy how he allows certain samples totally enhance the lyrical content of the songs on this record. This is one of two records the buyer star put out simultaneous said before earlier in the podcast, the second records caught lighting I won't be reviewing this record as well. This year. On a scale from one to ten with one being the worst and ten being the best. I give record eight favorite tracks are big Dipper featuring vote, and Courtney Wheaton pack saddled light, so SAD L E space eighteen light years apart clusters. Jim Jim in I featuring Jason Barry space, the last supernova. And then Saturn said turn around. She's in parentheses capital S, S T A R P trian. DM T. So yeah. Those are my favorite Traxler markets definitely pick it up. And then also. The binary star music, and and the one below hit his production style is very. It's like a has a jazzy Boone battlefield to it. Probably the best way I can describe it. So the next relative, you is then a cherry new corP compounds and the cover art is interesting. It's her in the middle of the street. And she's got this long flowing want. Peace like, light, blue sky, blue pinstripe dress this, but now from her neck down to the bottom to Toews as long sleeve, and I guess maybe it's Wendy outside because her hair's blowing upward and she's looking at you like she's trying to stop. I'm not quite sure. And she's got something. Let's arm might be like a palm tree or something. I can't I can't. I don't know what that is an honor head left arm. There's like a red patch to the left side of her chest on a shirt a big giant like red patch or a pocket. I'm not sure you could see her shadow behind her. But the ads this broken politics. It's like a color photo, Mike, she might have been. About to run somewhere walks snap to picture of her. That's how it kind of looks. But it's cool. Tonight's color, photos nights color. Nice cover album. Pitcher. There was just like freshly taking just filled with color tones to it. So let's talk about her.

Once again, this is Golden State media concepts music, captain Keith currently, reviewing the cherry record broken politics. We're getting back. Well, so she moved to London in the nineteen eighties and immersed herself in the Bristol music scene where massive attack and Portishead what form getting Volve with bands such as the cherries. The slits new age steppers rip rig, plus panic and float and float up. CP, but it was her collaboration with the duo Morgan McVey who released only the one single looking good diving that would be the springboard to launch her into international stardom. The single's b side feature cherry wrapping over the Eisai instrumental tracks with what later became the lyrics to her nineteen Eighty-eight debut breakout. Single buffalo stance. It's music we worked by bomb. The bass Tim Simeon semina- which reached the top ten in eleven countries actually her debut album, raw like sushi quickly followed spawning several more successful singles, including Manch out which reached the top ten and seven countries and kisses on the wind which made the top twenty six countries cherries. Next two albums found continued success in the UK and moderate success in a nationally. The most successful being nineteen Ninety-six woman between those albums cherry found major success with two collaborations love can build a love can build a bridge with share and Hein interesting. And seven seconds sooner door. I remember that song. That's a great song. I have to listen to the moment her sharing hind chip it out ten years passed until your album with circus would arrive. After another circus album in two thousand nine cherry collaborated with the thing. Okay. Chairs fourth solo album blame project rat in two thousand fourteen eighteen years after her third one it had no China singles, okay? So. Let's see the new album her fourth won miss produced by four Tet broken politics. So let's see. And it's on the super sound slash air. Why according then it caused this album quieter and more reflective and she states the following information. She shares I'm very shy about taking on big themes with the artists that I've got I've got a solution. Let's use me I'm very shy about taking on big things with the heirs that I've got a solution. Who has the freaking solution center? I like writing from a personal perspective and the time we live in. So. And the time we live in. It's me and the time we live in is so much about finding your own voice. People have been left feeling misheard misunderstood and disillusioned. What the free can I do censor. Maybe politics starts in your bedroom, or your house form of activism, and responsibility. The odham is about all those things feeling broken disappointed and sent but having perseverance it's a fight against extension of free thought and spirit. I have a name you have a name would not just faces mounds. You can put in the ground where human beings with lives and stories the album's cover was actually shot by Wolfgang tillman's recognize we shouldn't cover for Frank ocean's blonde. Okay. Santana for all right? So that's her take on record against my record now. So the first track is called fallen leaves? If that's off with a single note on the size as was outside atmospherics, jump programming and piano. Follow the percussion sounds like brush Dick's mixed with drumsticks hitting on the snare with a slightly muffled because of sound the muffle brush, stroked progressive sound, piano. Navigate the song. You can also hear a shaman or Shamas the sound effect layered over the piano, man rhythm. It is faint poignant to the production to the song the songs about then this relationship ending. There's there's clarity and sadness in regards to the to the mindset of relationship. The fall leaves symbolize relationship falling apart and both parties feel like strangers to each other. Now that is over. So here's the lyrics, and we'll get to into the definition of what the shallots in later on. Now, everything focus, I can see clearly every little detail. Crystal clear in dread breaks, my little brain the clarity hurts so looking at the pay. Now, we clearly down if I if I could after. If I could alter. Shift over petty ways. Plastic cups and paper plates. The quiet part is that never end. Don't mean a crap sensor. It's easier said here's the course is a fallen leaves the bird crap on my sleeve with no luck at our there'd be no luck or more watch me, come undone. Look at what you see just because I'm down. Don't step all over me. The second verse keep it under wraps, then keep it sealed and save things we left unsaid. Well, they become a roar. Push my buttons best unraveled at the seams. I have come and done in the fabric of dreams, cover them. So neatly too many layers deep down within me. And yet, I guess we're like strangers. I don't even know pull my trigger now, and it would drown within me. Sad. So and then the next tranquil my favorite tracks cost. Shotgun shack starts off with jump programming with shakers high-pitched bell in the background. The precaution is slow paced steady basis faint plays single note rhythms. The jump programming has a slow paced trip. Hop feel to it. You can hear what blocks being play with legs Afon sticks together. Towards the middle of the song another instrument which sounds like a mandolin is in the background towards the end of the psalm the bell like shaker percussion. And bass navigate the song. The song is about the violence. Endanger that is often attached to gun culture, people playing with guns and killing people in purpose and on accident because they don't understand the liberty of gun culture. Some things you shouldn't play with guns. Definitely one of them. This is definitely one of my favorite songs on this album. So here's the lyrics. Just some funny games. My name in vain nothing is the same. Just another day. Now funding playgrounds bend the rules now know the rules now play their rules now, it's an institutional resolutions. Excuse me. It's a tool resolutions lack of direction intersections. Here's the reframe pick up a gun. You know, you're gonna use it. No that gun. It's gonna be. It's gonna get loaded semi name before you pull it too late. You know, just took that bullet verse to looking front to back to the shotgun shack. He was at too slow to run fast run fast catching up with you too. Slow to move. It's going to get you the playground rules. And of course, you can't cry. Now, don't even try nowhere. You can turn. You can't even run away to cry. Now, don't even try to ride you can hide now. You can even turn away in the bridge. The shotgun living shotgun shack in the back. Living in the shotgun shack in the back living with shotgun. Living in shotgun shack living in shotgun shack living in the bag living with the show what the shotgun. Maybe what the gun living with your back to the wall. And the pre course pick up a gun. You know, you're gonna use it. No that gun. It's gonna get loaded say my name before you pull it too late. You know, just took the bullet just took that bullet. Of course, you can cry. Now, don't even try nowhere. You can turn. You can't even run away to cry. Now, don't even try to ride you can hide. Now, you can even turn away. And of course, you can't cry. Now, don't even try nowhere. You can turn. You can't even run away to cry. Now, don't even try to ride. You can't you can hide now. You can even turn away. So the last time we'll talk about on his records called soldier one of my favorite tracks was album. Is lashing on the to actually it starts off with keyboard? Atmospherics there gradually fade in slash grow. Louder you hear congress and claps in the drum programming along with string with strings effect. The sound like the Shanon so the shampoo sin or Samson are saying both were both were means three strings is three shrink traditional Japanese musical instrument derived from the Chinese instrument San Sheehan is played with the plankton car about she Chaman picks up the pace in the middle of the song. The percussion is slow and steady. It anchors the song allow with the Shammas and sounds so the shampoo we're hearing a sound effect the programming or the synthesizer actually then a cherry duets with her husband Cameron McVey during the cores, and it just adds more flavor to the song the lyrics to the song to abstract for me. I have no idea what the songs actually about possibly feel like. The person who claims to love you doesn't show you enough respect. I mean, I love the production in the field to the song. Second to regard. So here's the lyrics. You're all over me. Step back over my spit. You're all over me on the count of the place where I sit here all over me respect me or than this is it you're all over me. Step back step back if you love me anymore. You would run me out. If you love me every thought, I would never doubt. If you love me anymore. You run me out. If you love me every thought, I would never doubt. Second verse little stream of consciousness better. Get ready better. Get ready. I'm a soldier already gone. I'm a soldier to this too far. I'm a soldier, of course, if you love me anymore. You run me out. If you love me every thought, I would never doubt if you love me anymore. You would run me out. If you love me every thought, I would never doubt. Yeah. Except me everywhere everywhere. I go. And I will never show present present every dance. I hope we'll never suppose for in that for EMI commonsense. Keep us on our toes. Then of course, if you love me anymore. You would run me out. If you love me every thought, it would never doubt. If you love me anymore. You would run me out. If you love me every thought it would never I would never down world turn out. I am who I am. You. I care. We I am you care. Yeah. Let's roll down with the brothers in the house big chill. All the way to the to the street them. All the way to to strengthen my friend. That's the way we roll out. Yeah. We west London. A massive look at what you're viewing. Now, Jeannie, would you? Give me your real name. Placing a lot not of the game way. Limitations, always tease me place on locked not of the gang way. Limitations. Always they should get laid out played out. You know, set to gauge straight to you friend, stretched out gamers played out overrun stretching out. A lot of nothing. Got time for nothing. Gotta make something for for four four four four something something something something some so. Yeah, I don't know what that meant. But I like the song I do like the voices amazing on this. And do what she does with her husband is really cool. It's a it's a cool quirky type of song. So I like it so cherries cherries broken politics is record about broken relationships. Disappointment blood clots African refugees gun culture lies and corrupt politics her voices softy at slightly high pitched with the seasoned Indy. Soda livery. That is flawless her lyrics are absolute in the sense that either they are compelling compellingly profound or confusingly abstract. The production has a blend of soul slash trip. Hop slash trying to kinda hip hop that works for most of the record. This is the indie soul record with listening to and talking about on a scale from one to ten with one being the worst and ten being the best record of seven favorite. Tracks are fallen leaves Kong signals, devotion the vein. Thrombosis shack shack slob release and soldier. So there you go then a cherry broken potus. Check it out. And when we get back from this break, we'll review the doors waiting for the sun the fiftieth anniversary remastered reissue edition. TV has changed over time. Streaming has become the new norm. That's why Golden State media concepts television podcast dives headfirst to the world court cutting wants to be on the loop of what's hot Netflix for if it's not a preference. What about original shows in Hulu? We've got you covered. Join us as we fill the blank and talk about movies to street, and what show you should be binging. This is the Golden State media concerts television podcast. And we're back once again listening to GMC's music podcast. And yes, the fun review for the hour is the doors fiftieth anniversary has been fifty years since this record. Waiting for the sun reissue? Cover. Art is pretty cool. It's all four members. John dents. More Raymond's Erik Jim Morrison Robby Krieger standing in the field somewhere looks like it's. At sunrise, and you can see like the tall wheat grass in front of them. And it's called once again for the sun. So apparently the sons about there is waiting for it. So it's cool. So just let the doors. I saw on T reads, excuse me. So let's get into the background before against review. So just like the doors. First two albums third. Nineteen sixty eight waiting for the sun is getting the luxury issue for its fiftieth anniversary this year, and it did. It includes nearly master audio disc. Previously unreleased rough mixes attracts from the sessions and five live songs from the doors performance in COPA hanging in September, nineteen sixty eight the ban is also putting out a seven inch single to commemorate. Hello love you which number one on August. Third nineteen sixty eight that vinyl record, featuring the singles original at love street on the flip when he released on the sounds number one fifteen river Serie say, no. Of his third so waiting for the summer was released in July nineteen sixty eight and became adores only number one album, which I'm surprised to hear because I figure it like their other albums did so web just shocked. It took them three albums before that happened. In addition to Hello. I love you. The includes classes like the unknown soldier Spanish caravan five to one the two CD slash L. P collection includes the album's original stereo mix. Freshly remastered from the original master tapes by Bruce Sputnik, who was the band's longtime engineer and mixer. And later on he worked his way up through the ranks. He produced L A woman say engineer to producer, you probably did both. But he definitely produced LA woman. So yeah, he was and their engine for for just about all their records up until LA one. He produced that record which is a good album to actually riders on the storm. So that's to add that to you because it is until you that in the notes here. The fourteen tracks on the second feature early mixes of many of waiting for the sun Soanes, plus five recordings from the doors. Coping mentioned that. One of the recordings. They're alive is the wasp Texas radio and the big beat and back door man, I perform apper for some of these Mexes to the final. Sputnik says a press release announcing the fiftieth anniversary exhibition as they represent all the elements and additional background vocals difference abilities on balances and some intangible roughness all of which are quite attractive and refreshing so go so when the doors required waiting for the sun sixty eight there among the first bands to use Dolby a three oh one noise-reduction processors, which was cutting edge recording tech at the time. Similarly, the most advanced time recording innovations we used to make anniversary vision of waiting for the sun. The new release has been encoded with the IMO a master or QA, mashed a quality authenticated process and displays back on all CD players as standard CD quality. But if a. Mitch does player. It's connected to an Kuwait enabled device it can play the same this back at its rich. No sample rate. So there you go. It's a nice get into the review. I want to read the liar notes from the booklet not have enough time. I don't think we'll see we'll see play by ear. So I track one of my favorites. Hello. I love you starts off. So. So we're gonna go into like the bonus disc here. Starts the bonus scoff and the initial album offer, I dreamt real intro opens up remains there. It's classic rock and roll organ sound the keyboard effects on like a clarinet the first guitar or fuss box that rabbit is playing through is matching Raymond's, Eric's, cubes, keys, arrangement. Jan Moore's drums are laid back. They match women's with arrangement as well. Which is anchoring the song allowed the first tone. By rabbit Krieger, Jim Morrison's, baritone vocals are deep. Soulful and blues. -i his voice compels you to listen this song's about being mesmerized by the most beautiful woman who is walking down the street, the doors understand that this beautiful woman is a guy this they can tell by the way, she cares self and how everything around her falls by the wayside when she appears. So. It's kind of like Pretty Woman ROY orbison, but possibly better and I love that song too. But it's the same level. Although pretty women's about a prostitute two sons actually about a goddess different thing. Just say, here's the lyrics. Hello. I love you won't you. Tell me your name. Hello. I love you. Let me jump in your game. Hello. I love you. Once you tell me your name. Hello. I love you. Let me jump in your game. And his verse she's walking down the street to every is she meets do you think you'll be the guy to make the Queen of the angels side? And then of course, Hello. I love you won't you. Tell me your name. Hello. I love you. Let me jump in your game. Hello. I love you. Tell me your name. Hello. I love you. Let me jump in your game. Second verse. She hopes her head so high like a statue in the sky, her arms are wicked and her legs are long, and she moves my brain screens screams out the song. Sidewalk crouches at her feet like a dog that begs for something sweet, do you hope to make her see you fool? Do you hope to pluck this dusky jewel and the ad show? Hello. Hello. Hello. Hello. Hello. Hello. I want you. Hello. I need my baby. Hello. Hello. Hello. It sounds much better. When you hear it. It's just a classic catchy sixties rot sound the just I mean, this record was made in the sixties. But even when I hear it it just it. Just sounds great Thomas to me so Spanish caravan. Great tracks that's off with a Spanish guitar player by Krieger, his guitar work on the song provides an anchor for actually the doors guitarist also offer playing Flamenco Flamenco style. Guitar midway through the song that Atara changes up and plays with the first tone to its texture. Hello. I love you Ray men's Eric's keys, have a carnival like sound effect to them and his playing at the time. At the time and it's play at times match. Jim Morrison's vocal phrasing. Actually. Cool John Dinsmore drums, primarily sound spars as you can hear him playing the drums and snare sparingly. This song has a great Spanish rock field to is definitely one of my favorite songs on this record. The songs about wanted to be taken away by Spanish caravan. You want to take you to Portugal and Spain you just want to be swept away by the tram at all. So here's the lyrics. Carry me caravan take me away, you know, take me to Portugal, take me to Spain and lose year with fields full of grain. I have to see you again. And again, take me Spanish caravan. Yes, I know you can. The keys on this. So the keys and the Qatar sarandon's Eric and Raby Krieger, I mean, they they just propel the song. I mean. I mean, if they really they really stand out there playing on this track on this version and the version the second verse trade winds find gallons lost in the sea or galleons, excuse me. Trade winds firing liens loss in the see. I know where treasures waiting for me, silver and go in the mountains of Spain have to see you again in the game. Take me Spanish caravan. Yes, I know you can. So the lyrics now hold on lyrics. But the way Jim sings praises it. And the way the music is played it just fills up the whole room. Five to one we're going to get into this one. Okay. So starts off with the slow kick drum beat from John dense more followed by Ribot Kruger's fuzz bass guitar matching John's initial kick drum pace this fall by Jim Morrison's bellowing about five to one tar changes with the keys in matching the rhythm until. Excuse me. The Qatar changes with the keys matching the rhythm until Raymond's Europeans to navigate the song with this distinct. Keyboard arrangement, which sounds like a club. Again, they Qatar begins to follow the keyboard arrangement. The judge provide a few drum rolls towards the end of the song as Robbie Krieger Qatar solo rips through there, the jumps have a heavy Bill as the ban saves the acapella about getting together. One more time there appello arrangement sounds better on this. Rough mix of the song than on the original version. Don't get me wrong. Their mastering of this album is amazing. My biggest complaint would be the mono live recordings. At the end of the of the second disc, the musicianship is tight, but recording and self is just painful to listen to I feel like I got a better deal with the Beatles. Esher demos of the white album release. That after fifty year anniversary release actually then with these select five live songs from Copenhagen with the doors. There's a lot. There's also no substantial information in regards to why the actual title track and song waiting for the sun. And a celebration of lizard king on this record the doors did not have a regular bass player in the group. Raymond, raymond. Eric would often play his keys and the baseline on his keys at the same time during lap form Ince's. This is a great song has been sampled by Jay z. And it was called the takeover offer the blueprint and most deaf. But the rape over off of blackjack giants new danger. It's called danger. The original song seems to be about the culture clash between the old and new generation from the sixties and fifties. It also seems to be about Jim Morrison letting his girlfriend know that he's on his way over. Here's the lyrics. Yeah. Come on. I love my girl. She looking good come on one more verse one five to one baby one in five. No one here gets out alive. Now, you get yours baby. I'll get mine gonna make you baby. If we try the oak get old and the young get stronger may take a week, and it may take longer they got the guns, but we got the numbers gonna win. Yeah. We're taking over come on your balloons debt. You're balloon days are over baby night is drawing near shadows of the evening crawl across the years. Your walk across the floor with a flower in your hand trying to tell me no one understands trading your hours for a handful dimes gonna make you baby in our prime. Then of course, come together. One more time get together. One more time get together. One more time get together, a high and the whole band is doing this cappella on this rough mix, and it sounds really cool get together. One more time get together one more time, and they keep two PM. Oh bridge his the bridge. Hey, come on. Honey, you won't have a long wait for me, baby. I'll be there. Just a little while you see guy go out in this car with these people in get together. One more time get together. One more time get together got to get together. Got to get together. Got to take you up in my room and. Love my girl. She looking good looking real good. Love you come on. Come on. So the doors waiting for the sun record is about love lust suicide war mother nature rebellion the fifty year anniversary. This is worth picking up. I just didn't care for the last four live recordings because the model sound four for me was distracting if you can get past that you will love it because he musicianship of the band is definitely evident despite the model sound I didn't realize how much I missed this wreck until I heard this remastered version the rough mixes on the second don't sound that different with exception of five to one I felt like the live tracks should have been called the rough mixes and the rut Mexes should have just been called alternate takes. I this record eight and a half out of ten. There. They re mastered and released. Soft parade L A woman. I don't have the remastered the first record or strange days at go pick those up, but those remastered with bonus tracks are great saw parade. LA was great. I really enjoyed it. Like, I said this is still worth having if your doors fan on this is a great record. Visit reason why this is number one album the six six was a great time for rock and roll for the distinctness. The distinct sound that evolved from the different rock and roll bands of the sixties. The Beatles sewn different from the doors. They both had distinct sounds that worked same with the stones. So it was just very very fascinating. So my favorite tracks on this on this album are so off the first disc, it's the whole album. Hello. I love you. Love street, not touch the earth summer's almost gone when a time love unknown soldier Spanish caravan. My wild love as great track. People sleep on. We could be together. Yes. The river knows and five to one. And what it's crazy the doors got sample by Jay z most just saying, but it's it was great versions of the song to just great stuff. This to the rough mixes. Hello. I love you summer's almost gone. Yes. The river knows Spanish caravan love street when our time love not touchy earth five to one mile love. So all the alternate takes for the last sip of the live tracks. So. Yeah. Pick it up. It's a good album.

I have to answer Sputnik about that. If I ever meet him. That track is on Morrison hotel. Great record. So so waiting for the sons on that track. I don't know why. Rock and roll trivia minimum still just like why didn't you put it on? Why didn't you put it on there? Why would you name it this? And then put it on the next album. I don't okay.

Takhar casterman proletariat the motivator Deandra over there. Hey man how you doing nice robe. Thank you Jimmy. Kimmel bod from me some years ago. Get a good robe. Everybody boy paying dividends. Yeah I got up I got a little late on the swimming pool. I I actually you know there's a point when you make things like TV shows and movies documentaries and stuff. There's a point where you get enough distance from the project where it's not really yours anymore. You could just watch you know you could. You can literally just watch an old movie or an old something you did and especially when you're not in it you know you're you're kind of removed from it and I ran into mark pointing run into mark arrogance. I saw mark eras yesterday and I saw him at the shop. He of the Newman Gt Three Porsche. Petite Lamar. I don't even know what is that thing at. Gt Three what is that? Yeah it's a it's A. It's a two thousand so gruesome reference fairly modern. Yeah Mark Love that car anyway start talking and he just looked at me and went Man I I don't know how I missed it the first time around but the twenty four hour war man. What a story and He said ten minutes in he was just drawn in and it just kept going on. I was like yeah. Yeah it's a cool story. I don't think I've watched that movie You know in months or years or whatever it came out like I saw a thousand different versions of it anyway. Last night I was like had marks voice ringing my ear about the the twenty five war and I like watch the first hour of it. I just watch it like I never made it. I was like man. This is good. I love this story these Italian guys and Ferrari and then I was like looking at it and I was like. Oh that's Ken Miles from Ford V. Ferrari that's what he really looked like and I was. I was just kind of enjoying it as a as a spectator so What a what a story. I don't think that'll ever God you think about those times. I think about California and right now. Yeah what colossal fucking Posey's we've all turned into Carroll Shelby and those guys in those days in Venice beach. Yeah actually I was thinking about Also had it on my mind to because right about the time I've never really Thought about this but I interviewed last week on a CS robby. Krieger the guitar player from the doors. And those guys had like met and we're hanging out in Venice beach probably. Will you know the ban sort of formed in nineteen sixty five so like shelby was there? Shelby was building cobras. I guess the Daytona was probably first built. Sixty four. Is. You have to look like what month that was in sixty four but at the same time shelby was like doing his thing in Venice. Beach Jim Morrison and Raymond's Eric. Were like doing their thing. Two hundred feet away. The have been more different now. Are just a big fucking pussy. That that's what that's what we've turned into but that's what we used to be used to be that I I watched when Ford v Ferrari came out. I watched The shelby dock and then for Ferrari like back to back like watch. The doc then went to the theater and saw forty. Ferrari at his kinda wanted to see sort of back to back and go. Oh this is this. Is the story in what these guys did. And here's sort of the of the romantic version that Hollywood together in a both and I know we've said this before are both films are fantastic. You can kind of pick out of the dock and compare it to the movie but the movie still very good and entertaining in. Its own right. You know just a stand alone movie regardless of some of the facts. Changing here and there but You were disappointed. I know a lot of people like yeah. I this part I'll get is like every type of movie comes out because the book was better. I was like okay but I didn't read the part. Just saw the movie so it was fine. You know there's a little. I think there's a little pressure on car guys. You know what I mean like. Yeah The you know the Patrick Dempsey's of the world and guys like that to Kinda go like You know it wasn't that good or like like basically saying I know the story that wasn't the story you know part of it is your Bona Fides came in there. I know how that went down My feeling is is look first off. You know I enjoyed Cobra a lot better watch. I WATCH THE HELL. Outta daylight where he was trapped in the Holland tunnel. You know yeah. I can't really turn my nose up on on movies when I when I like to watch bad movies You know first off. Why do it to yourself in? Why go that was no good one? Enjoy the movie number one or try to enjoy the movie and number two. It's it's fine just because you know things doesn't you don't have to ruin it but but it's true like I talked to when I was interviewing robby. Krieger he was like I was on the set when they made the doors. You know With Oliver Stone and he and I was like Oh I love that movie and he's like you know it could have done some things differently and I'm like e You can't robby. Krieger can't enjoy it because robby. Krieger knows the story of how the Song Light. My fire was created. Yeah and the story. Is Jim Morrison basically said hey? I can't write all the songs You guys need to write some songs and then told like robby. Krieger when he was like nineteen or twenty. Like go home and write a song and and you know Right at about you know something universal or something and and love or earth or sky or fire something that was Robbie's thought on it and it was funny said this thing that made me think some sometimes of my life he goes. I one home and I wrote light my fire and then came back then next day with light my fire and then he goes. Nobody else did it and I thought Oh. Yeah I feel like that's my life where someone goes all right everyone. We're GonNa do this and then I go home and do it then I come back and I look around at all mcgonagall friends and no one did. Whatever knowing did the hallmark? Whatever we're supposed to do so he came back with light my fire and that was it. You know the the wrote it now like in the movie. Gm is like discovering it for him. And you know telling him in a Robbie's like I have a loose idea for our song and Jim's like well it should go this way instead. Now obviously if you just went home and wrote the song and brought it in and it was your band's first number one hit and broke you guys. You wouldn't want it to look like it was a big coal aberration. Yeah but that's what happens when you make a movie so anyone knows too much about that story like robby. Krieger is not going to join that film. I just went through the movie theater when I was twenty six and enjoyed the fill all right so you want to talk about Sterling Moss. I thought maybe You know we've We must have seen him run into him. I don't know if we ever attend a chance to interview him for anything for going race or anything. We've seen them at Goodwood and I just remember like walking around and seeing a little guy blow by and go. Hey that was stirling Moss and Stirling Moss as you guys know fortunately passed away but had a nice long life of ninety years old and I just started looking a little bit more into his career and And then you and. I talked a little bit this week casually on the phone saying. Hey you know. Stirling Moss is a name that's synonymous with racing for forever but he had a short career. I mean he was outlining his thirty one years old so for the next almost sixty years. What do you need to do to to stay relevant? You know like you're constantly involved in the racing world or you're you're all likable guy and you know people WanNa do stuff with you. Invite you to things and get your input on things but you know. He started racing very young. I WANNA say like seventeen years old when he started racing. Odds I think he won Kirsten double check sixteen of his sixty six races. A threat and Was in a terrible car accident when he was thirty one years old which resulted him being in a coma for a month well. I'm looking at ended his racing career. I'm thirty when I got a piece of paper here. And it says he raised from forty eight to sixty two winning two hundred twelve of the five hundred twenty nine races. He entered while the sick started. The sixty one races out of sixty six was F one sixteen sixteen out of sixty six F F One F one. So I don't know how okay. Yeah yeah that's a that's a very high. Two hundred twelve out of five hundred. Thirty races is quite a quite a winning percentage. You don't see that and Yeah that was just F. One Twenty Four Podium Sixteen Wins Zero Champions Championships but I had that horrible injury. What you raised in one hundred seven seven different types of car so very see I. I have drove eighty four different makes of cars over the course racing prayer but who the hell knows point and says he was a prolific racer and. Goodwood is worry crash. Good would turn out to be a little too dangerous. And that's why they shut it down. I don't know if McLaren died at goodwood too. Or was it like silverstone or something did goodwood did McLaren die testing at goodwood. The other weird. It's weird when you when you see these guys And you realize I always bring it up to you like how many guys died testing. You know. Just don't think of testing as as dangerous as a in a race when you look at When you think of So McLaren died bridge has died aged thirty to his can am car crashed on the Levant Straight. While he's testing the new McLaren m D at Goodwood circuit. Goodwood got stopped racing. There I think in sixty six. It was too dangerous now. They have a big race there every year but McLaren died testing God could that Guy Imagine how his name would would carry on and Ken Miles of course died testing Donahue died testing is well donahue who drove all the Porsche trans. Am Cars are sorry? Canam Porsche's nine seventeen thirties. He C- he set the speed record at law. Like Talladega in the in the Porsche. Nine seventeen thirty and stuff. He died shortly thereafter. I think testing F. One and Mark Donohue and then the other weird thing is like if you if you look like Ford Ferrari and they'll have that thing where like their Daytona on here comes here comes Ken Miles. And there's Walt Haskins than looking at each other. Whatever you go wild Haskins. Oh that guy died a few a few months later when they went to Lebron he was testing while Haskins was testing. Gt FORTY LAMA. And he died testing a lot of died testing. Just kind of interesting and if you watch The if you watch Ford v Ferrari. And you see him going down the straightaway and there's sort of evil Ferrari driver and He's like they're looking at each other. You know Ken Miles. Look at him and he's looking at him and they're going down the thing. I'll think of that guys like been Zini or something. That guy died a couple of months later in an F. One crashed I can like you. Just look at these ancillary guys like they're not making these guys up that's a it's like it's like it's not Roberto it's like Cassini or something I'll think of the guy's Zimmer got it written down somewhere but the point is he's the nemesis he's the Ferrari Nemesis tough-guy driver for Ferrari that can mild who's leading so the guys leading The Lama and Kens gotta catch him but he breaks his car and Blah Blah Blah and And then he's dead in this horrible fiery crash like just. I think at Monaco like like months later. So it's like all these names who are even around. These people are dead. Have half the time I mean. Obviously the guy who won that race with Ken Miles McLaren. He's dead like there was so much. Could imagine that amount of in a sport at an end so much damage like we're you know a stirling. Moss broke both his legs and skirt himself up. Nineteen sixty and then two years later was bigger accident at goodwood which ended his career and put them in a coma but it wasn't his first. You know like significant damage. And the the goodwood event he was. He was an f one car with no seatbelt right while they didn't want to catch on then when a catch on fire. Lorenzo Vandini that there's real money of his F. One crash just a fiery mass twenty. Yeah he wasn't you know stirling. Moss wasn't wearing a seatbelt. The Lorenzo Bandini car just caught on fire like I don't know why that couldn't fuck and figure out the fuel situation like nobody done the nobody. Nobody could conceive of a bladder. I guess not I I. I don't know it's kind of weird thing. Good question for Pete Brock. Right somebody who is there. Turning some stop fire was such a luck thing about fire is reason none of those guys wanted to get bolted into a car because a fire so because nobody wanted a cage in a six way harness and Blah Blah Blah because of fire. So if you could have eliminated the fire you then could have stepped up with your heart S. as in your role bars in your other stuff. You could have stepped up the harness game but no one wanted to get harnessed in until they figured out the fire situation and all the hands Aluminum Kellyanne with tons of gas in it. That obviously is not going to work for fire. In the only conceivable the only conceivable option would be to a bladder inside of the tank inside the aluminum kink. Lorenzo Bandini. Yeah I love that name. It's a great name. He's at Monaco. The next the next year he's at Lamont six six he's at Monaco and sixty seven. He's buzzing he's buzzing around the track and then all of a sudden there's a ball flyer and he's gone in fire insofar you're writing it. It's almost like it's dangerous on purpose to a fault like just it's amazing. How BOOM INSTEAD FIRE? Just all fuel and flames at that point. You're right there's no. I don't like what kind of thin gauge metals happening with. You know for lightweight on a fuel tank and and you know I guess I guarantee that by night debts. Nineteen sixty seven. I don't I don't know when the first bladder hit but in that footage is kind of weird. It looks like there's a cut. It's Kinda hard to tell but just looks like he caught a tire on something and just flames. Yeah okay here's the thing I guarantee you that the military had aircraft with tanks that had like self sealing or whatever tanks or bladders or some form of that by nineteen sixty seven by nine hundred sixty seven. The military was launching. F Four phantoms. Off of off of jet probably are are or A fours or whatever probably force in a force off fucking decks in the Gulf of Konkan. I mean we should have had a bladder of Fuckin- tank car. Yeah at at at least well. This is where the weight thing comes in where at at the very least there were probably different type of glass shield and fire shields in and reinforce metal plates in staff. Where Alexa way probably is you know is is worth the level of safety that you're getting Because that the ban Dini crash that that instant ball flying doesn't like just a fuel line like you'd never get that much fuel out of fuel. Line that quickly now. No that's the tank. That's just booms it ball of fire in a right When is Wendy? Think the first fuel bladder. Now it's GonNa be tough to say was used but was mandatory and F one. That's that's an interesting question right. I mean they had them in road racing. A lot of my. I got Datsun. Roadsters and have a fuel cell the fuel bladder in. I mean they're not. It's not the same bladder because they deteriorate over years but the problem the had a fuel bladder back in the day. I'd be curious to Windows. Were in use. When did you I think self sealing fuel tank original patent was submitted? A nineteen eighteen and then Somehow it was rescinded a self puncture sealing covering for fuel containers I believe got a patent in nineteen twenty one. Yeah that's a little bit of help but it's not really no but it just means that the technology was yeah. Somebody was about it. Yeah I look. In in the sixties we had military jets. That were capable of supersonic what what was what's up with the tanks on the F. One cars when did when did F. One. When was the rule that all the cars had fuels bells and When was it for Gt CARS OR NASCAR. Nascar car. Something I am. It's hard to find but I'm seeing for F one nine thousand. Nine hundred seventy is when that style bag tanks were made mandatory to prevent ruptures fuel spilled fire. Sounds about right like precisely in the late sixties. You didn't see it and you didn't really see all the fires and seventy five so must have been right about seventy but again. Not sure why they didn't fuck implement that or get to work on it. I mean if I want to shine in the back of my shop and I said Hey Sean there's a there's an issue with these lightweight. Aluminum boxes called fuel tanks blowing up. Everyone burning like could you work on it? It take him about three days to figure out that if he put a a ballistic type rubber in the lining of the tank. That wasn't degraded by the fuel. But that would go a pretty fucking long way in preventing this yet. Yeah I I don't feel like it was that whole and order right and to your point. This isn't because one guy got hurt. And they're going. Maybe we need it. Maybe we don't like we're already going on. Decades of people getting hurt killed in Congo. Not I mean what what it is but it's it's a ripple effect because if everyone's greatest nightmare is to burn alive everyone's everyone's greatest fears to burn alive in a car that's turned over on that right. That's that's the greatest fear of every driver will then. No one's going to wear a seatbelt. They're just GONNA they're just GonNa take their chances outside the car. Yeah all right.

I was just curious is the is the hot dog. Eating second rich like what what are the accolades for aiding the most hot dogs like other than free? Hot Dogs Joey yes not. I interviewed years ago On my morning show he was working. You know like I don't know if he was doing construct auction work at a warehouse or something but he was definitely had day job Kobe. She was the the big favourite to win. He was winning. The Japanese fellow was winning. Everything and Joe Joe is like nipping at his heels At some point joey past him has been dominating like ever since and I didn't even know Koby Ashi does it anymore. Night didn't answer. Your question. I mean does says chestnuts. Don't work at home depot or what's going on. I don't think you know when he does what he does to. The Best of my knowledge is he does hotdog eating than he does rib eating and he just like hot wing eating Imbaba Blah. I don't I'm not a fan of the rib in the hot wings because there's a bone involved and it's we can't. It's not technical enough. I liked the whole thing to be gone. Yeah well I get you like you watch the Olympics and somebody who's running track or something and these lyrics doing the hurdles but we don't see as like the course of the year they're they're doing you know world championships and whatever whatever so I guess you gotTa just keep eating. Throughout the year we have is all just the online celebrity net worth and we know how wildly that can vary. Guess what you think it is i. I died two million dollars That doesn't it doesn't seem wildly Wildly off to me that I mean there's endorsements I guess I'm going to go one point five damage. It's literally one point. Five to two million dollars looked it up earlier in the week. Well I guess I guess Nike and is not a part of the hotdog eating competition because the it seems all allow for for endorsements KINDA COUNTERACTS. The whole athletic fit. You know well the the the thing that thing. That's funny is Joey used to be what you just call like a big husky dude. But he's now lean and mean that he's winning all the eating competitions and Kobe she who used to win. All the competitions was a freak like that guy had a six pack and was like I duNNo. Kobayashi as I recall was like you know five ten one sixty and like shredded so it really it it you know. I know everyone kind of has that like Monty Python version of the big eaters but it turns out the guys that are in fantastic shape and better athletes tend to be better at that. That's my jerry. I Dunno I would also on this but I was just curious. 'cause I'm sure you've talked the guys at some point just wondering what the well the way the data you know the way I met Joe Koi the way I met Joe. Koi many years ago is he was Kobayashi. He would play Kobayashi on the radio and he and he would taunt Joey Chestnut. Joey didn't even really fully know like of that was Ju- you know. Koby out here like this guy was really play these. He'd call in and taunted him and I didn't even know who I I didn't know Jo Koy was like I. I didn't know all the stand up. Comedians this is thirteen years ago or something fourteen years ago or something and you know. My dog is just like a got. This guy's GonNa play Kobayashi. Like I don't even think he told me it was Joe. Koi. 'cause I R I was like who's Yokoi like I don't know who person. Hey Yeah. But that's who he is and so he would call in as Kobe is she. And you know Two months ago I open for him at the form so he opened for Joey. Chestnut keep going everybody. Yeah you never know what. The future whole. Yeah but from the time he was doing that show. I mean he was doing my show and like I duNNo. Oh seven maybe eight. I don't remember it. It had been. It had been a while since from the time he was unknown. Doing Kobayashi she on my show to the time he was selling out the forum but but he he kept advocates. So if you're listening that's And that's the idea right. Yeah so Let's see Ford mock e electric specs. You have something for us. Yeah I was looking for some good news in the automotive world and excuse to be you know between Carl Larsson and Mike Lavallee dime. I don't know if you know Mike Lavalle. We talked about it earlier this week. Both Goldberg and I went into it. Because you knew well Mike. Lavallee was the airbrush painter. Overhauling did real flames airbrush. He he died last night as they night. Hold Buzzing Sixty. I believe he had a stroke. He was in the hospital and a lot of the fans were rallying forms. Nice guy but I was like over some good news in the in the car were all end and the Ford mock e which is the electric Little Crossover SUV type vehicle. That will be coming out soon that I like. I think it looks really good. I went for a ride in one. Now the information is coming out and saying hey we can revise the numbers. It's GonNa have a little more horsepower. Excuse me a little more horsepower and Torque than we thought and we're kind of breaking in the down a little bit about how does this stuff happen and it's like when you go and you buy you go? Buy Your Your Mustang. Gt it needs to have the right balance between fuel efficiency and emissions and performance students. You take it you bring it home. You can do whatever you want. And you can put a tune in it and get you know thirty five extra horsepower. But you might lose another mile per gallon or something in the process and that's fine you know and so. Ford has to do a thing especially with the electric cars. They can say hey. It goes zero to sixteen five and a half seconds can do in five point. One sure we can just adjust the software but now what does that do to the overall range of the vehicle right? Oh what day figured out is is. Hey we can make this thing perform a little bit. Better turn up the power and not alter the range and and that's where the revised numbers are coming from. So you know it's on average with her fifteen sixteen horsepower pumps you know you know eleven. Twelve foot pounds tour But who knows maybe that translates to another ten off zero to sixty or something like that depending on whatever mode you're in But it seems to me like the rain. Schwab still be about two thirty on the low end for the low battery I think or is it might be two to ten on the low end and three hundred on the high end range. Yeah Yeah with the different batteries. That's all wheel. Drivers is rear wheel. Drive my kids are turning fourteen in a few months or maybe a month or maybe Let's see when a month and a half whatever Chris can Google it. My kids are turning fourteen soon when they turned sixty two years from now. They're not gonNA. They'RE NOT GOING TO BUY GAS. Car Are they I. I don't know that they do because first of all the electric cars. Her are becoming more affordable. You're talking about you know you know. Tesla NISSAN LEAF TESLA. A model three. And and these these Mustang. Maki's are going to start at like forty four grand. Sure they can get up to sixty thousand or so but Or or more. But you know they're not one hundred twenty thousand dollar cars anymore like you. Can you can get this into pretty good price range and yeah it's like eight. We like what we like. And you know it's it's it's kind of fun to have you know you know the the loud whatever muscle car or truck or something. That is for That's for us. I mean my my kids aren't gonNA. They're not gonNA want that right but there is. It is kind of coming to a point where I go. Hey we gotta go to the studio of a few days a week or go to Orange County to do podcasts or whatever. Electric machi wouldn't be bad half. You're not gonNa take away the other things that I like the other cars. You know the allowed whatever But why not have the Have have the cool kind of electric car one. That's now it's fun to drive in a looks good and it's kind of forty. Yeah no I think I think I think we're there I think is is Mustang. Asari is the Ford Mustang. Whatever is that all available could I could I if I went down a gal in and I talked to Bow Bachman and I said hey really want one of those cars like Pronto. How long would it take okay so That was supposed to be available soon. But with the krona virus thing they're delaying the launch Orders were taken for the first edition. And I think that's sold out and then I think there's GonNa be another like sort of order process happening But you can't go to the dealer and get one right now. It's still going to be. I don't know the exact date on it yet. I don't know it's looking like twenty twenty one. It's GonNa be a little bit right so I will. How `bout this were close like. We're we're really close now. There's a Lotta options prices down the leaf and the volt vault or Baltar. Volt is gone now. We have a moment. We have a ball tests. The has the three lot options. Lot of whatever like were were there right now but Infrastructure a little bit range. You know still get well. I don't know can we get from here to Vegas? What's Vegas two hundred something miles yet? It there's A. There's like a fast charger or something on the lease for the vast lies. I'm not sure how did ward Ford stuff you couldn't get tomorrow. You'd have to wait a year or whatever it is. I'm just I'm going to say that and I'm going to proclaim this. I'M GOING TO PROCLAIM THAT. When my two twins hearn sixteen two years from now that will be the point where we tipped. That'll be it. Doesn't that'll be the first time. It doesn't make sense not to get an electric car. Now we all know you know Rob Schneider pulled up in his Tesla roadster eight years ago or whatever and it was like is an eccentric celebrity with no kids. You know fine. And he's he's dwarf so let him drive a tesla you know. Let them pay one hundred and twenty thousand dollars or whatever yeah and then then it started getting into the the leaf and stuff but the but the range or the BMW Whatever but the range and Blah Blah Blah. And now the point where it's like. I'm my wife drives an electric car. I don't it makes sense for her. Maybe not so much for me. I say when my kids turned sixteen like literally throughout the course of history. You'll be able to look back to that date. You Know Two thousand and twenty two and go. That's the year. It actually made more sense financially. Spiritually whatever like it actually you know the environmental movement everything else. It actually made more sense to drive an electric at that point. It's a little like a little bit of a coin. Toss maybe the gas I would. I would also add to that argument and that the cars are going to be cooler by then. Sixteen year olds. Seventeen year old sunny in Italian are gonNA go. Hey Dad that thing looks cool all this. It's this kind of Mustang looking at this thing and it's no longer you know making a statement or or kind of a hipster thing or even an affluent thing like they're more affordable Louisiana cool. Yeah right now. That's all part of the equation. But that's all part of the more sense. I don't were right there. I'd say when my kids turned sixteen we will will go electric Let me hit GEICO. Chris has a question about a newman. Nine eleven Sean Sawing up the tail of The C- bring nine eleven as we as we speak talk about that maybe another show take some pictures of it. Geico ever one you want to We have homeowners insurance. You ever renter's insurance. Why don't we bundle? We'll get our bundle on at Geico GEIKO DOT COM take a either homeowners renters insurance and bundle it with your auto insurance and save a bunch of money. Make things a little easier on yourself. That is Geico GEICO DOT COM. Makes it so much easier the bundle at? Geiko that's GEIKO DOT COM rem ex-pat as actually about the tail. So I looked at Sean instagram. And he posted this picture of that. We talked about two weeks ago of the nine eleven s Porsche. Halley had that wing under the tail. So Sean posted a picture of him fabricating at the almost day of and then later on. I just see this picture which everything taken apart now just curious as to what not. Just take it apart. That's all cut up. Yeah that's not taken apart that's cut apart. Yeah that's that's you get one shot. You know what it is. I guess recess for an update on what John's got is wheel out as pneumatic cutter. And it's we only cutting everything with this wheel by the way people don't use like a saws all or jigsaw like a reciprocating blade when you're cutting Fiberglass like this are many things use a wheel are very thin wheel it so much easier to do it He East taking the existing fiberglass deck lead with a big tail and at and he's cutting out a lot of it and he's shortening it up and he's making a lot more narrow and he's GonNa put it all back together and have to re glass. It and repainted re-stripe it and re everything at by it will is my decision that this car since it went back to the paint scheme that had had in nineteen seventy when it ran at sea. Bring with Bill Freeman and Paul Newman driving it. It needed the tail. That was correct as well and the tail was not correct. The tail was off of A. The tail was off a more modern car and shouldn't even say more modern car. Just it wasn't modified as this one was modified they put these side. Canard's or skirts on it. They short ended up. It looks really cool. I'm Noah didn't work that well because no one else adopted it but either way. That was the car as it raced at sea. Bring in nineteen seventy seven and I was like well. Then that's what we have to put it back to and it was definitely bespoke. I have never seen another porsche with that modification on its tail and Matt Ni- have walked through many paddocks and looked at many horses right. We've never seen this before. I am so curious to how this is going to change anything. You haven't driven the car yet so there's not going to be sort of an apples to apples comparison but I just curious as to what they were thinking when they did it on. I mean we can make some assumptions. And what the result was and why it didn't show up again so it went to bowl winkle racing after this and it stay that way for a little while and then at some point they switched it all right so you can Where do you go to follow all this stuff?

Brian on sound effects and now according to Mayor Garcetti. He's currently experiencing home more nece. Much home yeah. Get IT ON. Got To get on a judge beyond mandate it on. Thanks for tuning in. Thanks for sharing love that about Tina grand. That's right and ball Brian. Go here we go. I was thinking about robby. Krieger and talking robby. Krieger from the doors and I had a moment in time when the doors movie came out. I just looked it up. It was March. Nineteen Ninety one and Movies Affect You I. There's I think there's two variables there's there's two elements one is is. What is the movie? How good is the movie? What's the content of the movie and the second is? Where are you in your life? Which is sometimes you're thirteen and you see I you know when I was eleven. I think I probably saw Jean Wilders. The world's greatest lover. It was a gene wilder movie. People totally forgot about and I'm sure it was bad but I thought it was the funniest. Shit I've ever seen in my life. The world's greatest lover but a gene wilder movie you know Circa Nineteen seventy-six. That must be must be well under sixty percent on rotten tomatoes. But I saw it five times because I was eleven or twelve or whatever. I thought it was funny. Did you find it? I was GONNA say my Mo- my version of that was opportunity knocks with Dana. Carvey when I was ten or eleven or twelve or whatever. It was like this is hilarious. It wasn't hilarious. It's very marginal movie. Some might say bad but I thought it was hilarious. I saw probably ten or twelve times right and I have seen it as an adult and even recently and it's super super dated and not very the world's greatest lover Carol Kane Dom deluise must have been crazy dom deluise dom deluise was literally in every third movie made from nineteen seventy four tonight one thousand nine hundred eighty six and he was on Carson weekly all the time. Keep people for got. How INSANELY PROLIFIC DOM? Deluise was because he never carried the film he was just in it all the time and he was on. Every one of those game shows daytime game shows anyway. So if you're in a place where you're a little vulnerable emotionally or young or immature or something things affect you in a greater way. And when I came across Oliver Stone's The doors in Nineteen ninety-one in March. I was at a weird place in my life like I. It was twenty. I was twenty seven by this time. Add been going at it for you know seven years or so. I had kind of given myself the marching orders and or deadline. That if stuff doesn't work out by the time you're thirty You'RE GONNA have to go full time on a construction site. It's your contractor's license and you know sort of call it a life and it was pretty clear by twenty seven. It wasn't working out like it. There were no indicators. It wasn't an incremental thing you know show. Business is a weird endeavor. I by the time I got to the very end of my ten year. Promise when I was knocking on the door of turning the doors of turning Thirty I met Jimmy. You know weeks before and I had to go. Look it up the other day. That was in one thousand nine hundred ninety four by one thousand nine hundred ninety five. I was hosting a huge syndicated popular national radio. Show live out fast. It happened. Hurry up and wait. It happens super fast. So the but but if you're if you're working toward your engineering degree or you're working toward getting certified as a welder. Beautician or whatever it is it's incremental. You know there's a two year nursing course and I'm a year and a half ed or whatever that is in show business when when I started out when I was about twenty just start started to go explore. Show business or comedy when I was twenty seven. There were no signs that I was any closer seven years into being paid comedian or personality or rack on tour. Whenever there was nothing there was still nothing and I remember. You're you're selling out half of the first row of Acme theatre consistent basis. You're packing only if he distributed leaflets outside an Italian restaurant. Yeah Robert Blake shot his wife. Robert Blake alive. I think he is that near most. We'll look it up so I was Yeah I mean literally at the Acme theatre would have. He's alive. Yeah he's eighty six. We'd have the Sun's Boring as hell but go ahead that's him that's when we would have conversations at Acme theatre where I would go okay. It's Saturday night and there's two people in the audience and we're just GONNA cancel the show if there's two people but if another person shows up and we have three people then we're going to do the show going for it I remember. Do you WANNA show once. I invited my grandparents do it. They hated it by the way but we always knew who was going to show up at the acne theater because there was no foot traffic so every single time. We'd be backstage. That'd be like Vanessa. Do you bring anyone and go. Yeah I got four people from work coming tonight and then I'd go like John McCain. What are you guys. I got three people from work and I was like okay. We got seven people. I remember once to my. I was horrified a real backstage. I was like Vanessa. How'd you My friends coming tonight. I could make it or whatever John. What about you? I got nobody Paul what about now bob now and like. I'm fighting my grandparents tonight and everyone is looking at me like well. We don't have anyone coming and I was like okay. That means just my grandparents show Biz. No the only person that ever walked in off the street and wandered in to watch a show without being dragged in was Fred Willard. First of all people. Yeah that's why you know back in the day when he went to the tiki massage lounge or something and there was all the Kerfuffle about wait a minute. That's a gay bar or that's a massage parlor. And he's like I just WanNa came in and we know what was going on. I'm the only person in Hollywood. Their beliefs it. Totally Max out with widespread voter experience totally checks out. I was there in eighty nine when he just wandered into the two roads theater loan and asked me for a hand job. Okay so I was so I was like twenty seven. It wasn't working out and I saw the doors and also now that I think about it. Jim Morrison died at twenty seven. And so I guess we were. I guess we're the same same age Trying to figure out you know be interesting. Expat went Jim Morrison died. I mean not win. But like was he literally twenty-seven in four months. I GONNA turn twenty-seven in May are twenty-eight either way We're just sitting there. I watched the movie. I'm like moved by it. I'm like this God. What a performance. This is crazy and the doors. I was never really big doors fan but I had to kind of mature into the doors. And because you know when you're fourteen you WANNA hear the Bay city rollers not the crystal ship. But the stuff they were doing first things first like I always thought of break on through is is possibly like the first punk song break on through is kind of. Punk rock song from the from the sixties. Play a little bit of it Dawson. I think you guys all especially and we won't get all the way to the end but when he gets the end that's punk rock. Yeah trying to do the other kind of raw sound to Chase Lakers dog tragic second round all right so Pity I always. I always did like at Zometa. And there's like the Alabama Song Whisky Bar Song which is the opposite of Pop. And it's so eclectic I mean when you go over to just take a look there double desk best up the doors. There's so many gets crazy weird strange and then there are songs show. I will definitely recommend it. Chris Lewis Bristol but here I was twenty-seven things weren't working out. I won't be here so you know I was depressed. I bought a I bought. No one here gets out alive. That's the doors and that's basically the only book I've read as an adult. That is a huge compliments. I loved the book and I'm so in my head up melancholy going like what's it all about is any of any of this going to work. And what's the land and I didn't have a plan and it also when you get older so seven years can go by pretty quick like you know. I remember when my kids were years old seven years old. She passes quickly from twenty to twenty seven. That does not pass quickly. Took a very long time to see if I could achieve anything that I wanted to achieve and pretty clear it wasn't it wasn't happening is long. Especially if you're not a professional athlete like the rest of us just much going on your early to mid twenties like Scott of a small. It's fun you got friend. Got Free Time and stuff but not. You're not rolling the Dow and killing and work put ours. Might you know my. This is such an unlikely a song. All right you can Potett Down Dawson. So wow so All right so yes. You're right in. My problem was even though I drank all the beers with all the buddies and went on road trips that Tijuana did all the shit that seemed like fun always in the back of my head. I had this time is running out. And what the hell are you? GonNa do clock. That always stopped me from fully enjoying whatever the moment in that. I always knew that you can have all the fun you wanted. But there was nothing to really go home to. I didn't have a career a real job and I didn't have any savings I didn't have any security and then having medical or dental and it always kind of bumped me and by the way the reason I'm sitting in my home theater now and the guys I work with are out of a job when they had to clean the AMC theaters in Burbank. And they're they're now all at home not working and doing whatever they wanted to do. The reason I'm better off than they are is while everyone was partying. I had it in my head but what happens when we're thirty. What are we going to thirty? And they're like drink more beers smoke more river and I was like no. We gotta have yes right so I started kind of planning and none of them did. And that's that's kind of what happened to them the So let's see maximum Patta so Jim. Morrison was twenty seven and eight months or something and seven twenty seven and seven when he passed so if I was born may twenty seventh one thousand nine hundred sixty four then. How old was I? When I watched the doors I'd probably the same age actually. Ut Morrison why not in March Ninety one so you probably saw it in its theatrical run which was march or April before your birthday. Yeah I saw. I saw it before my birthday would have been. I saw it when it hit theaters. So now I'm trying to figure out if I was going to turn twenty eight or turn twenty-seven Oh turn twenty one sixty four right. Yeah Yeah so you WANNA turn twenty-seven unless my mouth really bad yeah all right. Well we'll just I get a little confused on that sometimes but anyway so I was. I sat home. I read the doors books. I listened to the doors and I sort of thought a lot about Jim. Morrison's like he was basically same age. I was he did so much you know. Now he's been dead at the you know that point has been dead for twenty one years or something like that but he he done so much before he died. And I done so little and we're essentially the same age and I didn't have any catalog to leave behind or doubled. This sets are books of poetry. A lawyer or any there is no longer. There was no no my grave site in France. Which I've been to I've been to Jim Morrison's grave in France. Well it wasn't that wasn't like a. I'm obsessed with Jim Morrison. That was more like the catacombs. Were near that if any of your. Avatar in the catacombs well I went to France to see all back on track and I went to France. I did a goodwood festival speed and then Loma. They're like a week apart back when we used to have civilization week apart. And so if you really wanted to do the car international car thing you'd go see them off stick around. France look around for few days and then go to Goodwood in England. And when we're sticking around France we went to the catacombs which I think with all the skulls that are buried all the bones that are buried underneath France and then Or I should say Paris and then and then somewhere that Jim Morrison grave or whatever's right up there so we just walked over there anyway so that was kind of my my doors experience and it was just this weird pivotal part time in my life when it really got. Kinda etched into my Dole positive. We've done this on rotten tomatoes before you guys like to guess what the tomatoes score is of the doors. Oh God it's got to be very high. I clicked on it and it was either fifty four or fifty seven. I think come on. Are you serious? Ninety fifty seven percent. That's I don't understand that I understand that I've actually never seen all the way through. Oh God I've seen a million times. It's a great movie. It's a great movie Val kilmer deserved Kademi Ward number. One number two We were just speaking yesterday about movies. That like maybe other people didn't like although this isn't that but maybe that are low. Get Low rotten tomatoes scores that you really like the doors for me. I love that movie so streaming on Amazon Prime doing wants to watch it. It's a it's it's not only a very interesting story and Jim Moore and Val kilmer amazing but it's a real slice of so cal and the sixties like Venice beach in that entire scene in that entire world very very interesting time in this This country how hot was Meg Ryan in that movie? She was great. Everyone who was in the band was great. It was comic Lachlan. I believe to remember who played robby. Krieger down at it here. Frank a young firm. This movie right. It's it's a great movie. It really is great. Jim Morrison is great. Sorry Val kilmer scrape. The music is great. Everything's great it has a little bit of like the Oliver Stone. Kind of what's the American Indian that he seeing that goes dove and he's GonNa fall of the naked lady you know. It's got a little bit of that dream catcher. Kinda Shit that Oliver Stone puts in some of his stuff sometimes all the time. Yeah but it still works where her what other scenario at work more perfectly in then the most famous rock God to be dropping. Sdn having all these esoteric conversations with himself. Yes you will feel like when you're done watching it you feel like you're high like drops them peyote hundred percent so we'll I'll talk robby. Krieger and a bit. But I just it was just had this rush of memories as I as I went back to that Era So it's just will never have that again we'll never have. I don't know the whiskey in sunset strip and records and record album covers and jackets and photos. And people buying the whole record and listening to the B. Side and the deep cuts and it's just it's all digital it's all it's all gone All right Let's see. Oh so funny. I was just having this conversation with somebody Two days ago which is so. My kids are supposed to be in school but schools shutdown. We've lost all track of time and it's just everyone. The schools thing is everyone. Just go home and never come back. We'll figure it out I don't know I don't feel like that's going to be a great decision I think if you've lived with your grandparents maybe you shouldn't go to school but I don't know if all kids not going to school for the foreseeable future is a is a great approach to this but either way my kids are home. We've lost track of time completely. They're doing school over the Internet but it takes about an hour a day like they're all done before ten in the morning. I'm not sure exactly how it's working a really. Don't care but I was talking to somebody which I've always said. Which is this school. The administrators the teachers everything. Everyone would love to go home and just get paid for the biggest problem with everyone having to stay home. It's not getting paid if you're getting paid in full then yeah. I'm I include myself in that group. Everyone would like to go home and get paid. The kids don't want to school the everyone else doesn't want to be there. They want to go home and get paid and no politician is ever going to stick their neck out and go wait a minute. I think it's time we get back to school. So it's a perfect storm and I was like I said to the person I was talking to you. I said here's how you know most teachers and faculty and whatever here's a little indicator of how they don't like to work but they like to get paid and the answer is this Whenever there's a two week off or Christmas vacation or Easter whatever it is they never come back on Monday. They always come back on Tuesday. I always it fooled by I. It's always Sunday night and I'm always saying to the kids. What else back to the salt mine tomorrow like Christmas is over. You know. It's the New Year's the first come and gone or whatever. Sometimes that'll screw the data but it's time to get back on Monday morning or the day after the first or whatever it is and they always go now now. We don't come back on Monday. We come back on Tuesday which doesn't exist in the private sector. It just doesn't you have your vacation. You've come back on Monday so now. It's virtual schooling and I don't know what the schedule is but I do know it was Easter break and today's re record. This is the Monday after Easter break. And I said are you guys back doing online schooling? Like no why. Not because that doesn't start till tomorrow and virtually it doesn't start like nope and I'd like it still needs to really sit down and explain to me. My premise is. Everyone wants to go home and get paid by and large. I don't I don't I don't begrudge it. That's just my. That's my premise. Lying to me if there is if there's never a work on Monday after a long lay-off doesn't that make my point. Is there any other facet? People don't go back to work after the thing. Why is it always the Monday off? Well THE MONDAYS OFF. Because we don't like going in we'd like getting paid look. I know there's some good teachers out there. I never encountered any. But I know there's some good teachers out there and I know people give me shit like as people are heroes and they're and they're working ot and all that and So I will acknowledge but I'm saying my kids don't like going to school and I don't think they're teachers. Want to be there any more than they do but everyone wants to get the grade. Everyone wants to get paid and now a perfect storm has blown over. Get the grade. I have to say I'm shocked. I have a friend who is a teacher at a private school. And she's like. Oh I'm so exhausted I go. Why are you exhausted your home? She Goes. We still have these stupid. Eight am teleconference. You know teachers conferences every morning. And I'm like why she goes. I don't know so a lot of these. Schools are trying to keep this semblance of a schedule. But I think that's not fair to that. I think that sucks why. That's just to address. Yeah my buddy. Carl teaches at a public school. Up in God I think it's an Oregon somewhere and he teaches art and I'm like how's IT works. We do a zoom thing. I'm like how many kids are in it. It's like I don't know for like really like why he's like and no one cares. I teach art like who cares like if you think about not. Every teacher's teaching math in economics and sociology. Or something. You know. There's a ceramics teacher. I was a ceramics major with the hell. Would Miss Tompkins doing now? Like teach ceramics. Virtually from your house or maybe you could give some sort of tutorial but I mean those people are all off the hook. Yeah the hands on stuff must really be suffering the art and ceramics auto class vessel. Have that yeah. I don't I don't I don't even know that anyone cares at this point in their up and running or what what what wisdom or or lessens their imparting to the use those people get a total fucking free. Pass all right Let's see we got a short Thirty five second clip to play from Dawson's audio book. Is that True Dawson with about this book. You're working on. This book. Is the second book by Guy Already. Did his other audiobook his name is Gary. Patterson he's a rock and roll historian and this book is called the Walrus. Was Paul the Great Beetle? Death clues and for the period of the last four Beatles records there started this rumor on the Radio in Detroit. The Paul McCartney was dead it caught on America like wildfire and then the race to find new clues to find out who this new Paul is in his are these Beatles songs. Real people started really looking and overlooking into the Beatles Music. And what Mr Paterson has done with this book as he explores every single possible. Death clue some that are believable. Some that are insane and then he gives you the history behind it and why Pete believed it could possibly be true. What kind taking into account. Also the time period of turbulence sixties. It's a really really in depth look at the Beatles music and honestly the greatest hoax ever pulled on the American public. That Paul McCartney was dead. All right now I got to this part of the audiobook and as soon as I read this part I knew what the audio sample I would play on. This show is Mr Paterson Our old. No punches he wrote an honest wonderful treatise on the subject. And here's just a thirty five seconds sample John Lennon and his wife. Cynthia divorced and Lennon married Yoko Ono. John believed that marriage was not necessary but that a happening could result from their marriage. John's experimentation with the avant garde continued with recordings made with Yoko long tracks of her screaming vocals accompanied only by John's Electric Guitar. Feeding back in equally frenzied tones led rolling stone to suggest. The new sounds were like severely retarded child being tortured that was from Rolling Stone magazine. But he somebody else's smart back then to somebody sent a funny tweet. Lich as as a picture of like Yona Yoko doing like an outdoor concert in the middle of Manhattan and sort of red helping keeping keeping little sheltered in in their units. I I don't remember what it read exactly but it was it was it was spot on the The super cool thing about this audio book now and being stuck at home with the quarantine as we have the internet and all of the album covers all of the Beatles music. It's all available online. Even if you don't have the records yourself you can listen to this audio book and go through a piece of history actually verify all of these clues like Oh my God holy smokes. That's you know. Paul is holding a cigarette in his right hand. Paul's left-handed on the cover of Abbey Road. That was one of the clues Paul's Barefoot. Part of the part of the book goes through that entire Abbey road photo? Shoot and it's fascinating stuff. Well I just got done doing a audio book session with an Engineer Dawson. And he is just fantastic at that job boy. It's not just about the engineering it's about the inflection and the re. It's so much stuff in there so Dawson's said you're you're engineering the audio book a game as a is next level at this point and and a real important part of doing an audio book at least at least for me so we're My book is coming out soon. I think we bumped it to June sixteenth as I recall but you can go pre-order it at Amazon if you'd like an audio book as well all right Thanks Dawson and Yoko Ono sings on city streets to ensure ny resident and stay inside scrape. You gotta wonder like I always the thing I always wonder about. Everyone is does any of it. Ever penetrate like. What does Yoko Ono see it in? Like what does she think? And then why does that you know I sort of have this? This mild obsession with slight Ozzy wanted to come back in in work for me because he can't work for anybody because he's he doesn't work. You know what I mean. He's not a good worker so nobody will hire them and eventually the word gets out and you can just you know repeat business and he. He threw himself on the mercy of my court a few months ago and I just had a we said I said. Let's just take a walk and we took a walk and I kept saying I will hire you. Ozzy I will. I don't want to but I'll do it because we've known each other for a long time and I know you're you're down on your luck and it had kept saying but you have to work. You have to work. Do you understand me like if you don't work. I'm not going to continue to employ. You have to work you understand. And he's like And I kept going. I'M NOT KIDDING. You Ozzy if you come back and you do what you normally do. I Will Not. I will fire you so I will hire you. You're desperate but you must work and I just thought I don't know if someone kept saying that to me. That's a weird. You know what I process like. Why would you processing again like we always say like you know? Hey Bob. Movie starts at eight eight. Gotcha I'll see the but not a ten ten bucks heat needs eight eight means eight. Yeah Yeah Okay. I'll see you probably want to leave at seven thirty just to make sure when people talk to you that way or make jokes about you clearing the city out with your sing singing does it does. Does it penetrate? Do you process it like well what I know. Everyone thinks everyone else's an asshole for talking to them that way but penetrate a little more in Yoko. Ono's case of imagining that she can hide behind the veil of Artistry Ritz. Like well people do just understand. I don't understand when it's time for them for the Ozzy's of the world or anyone else.

Let's take a break. Come back with a ball and Gina in the news right after this break five all those crazy trump to give for gene grant troubled pretty gene gene the news with Gene Grad. It's not the biggest shock ever that we have a new a new TV show host. That has come down with corona virus. Because we knew that his wife had already come down with it which was Allie Wentworth. George Stephanopoulos from Good Morning America has now revealed that he's tested positive for corona virus He's feels good. He's not experienced any symptoms and he will continue to work from home. He also added that his wife is recovering and has been fever. Free for five days. He assumed that I knew Allie from You guys know from the groundlings million years ago. I mean she must have been at the groundlings the same time. I was the groundlings and I don't know. Did she get hit hard? I didn't hear her story. She got hit. I mean like like it. Says she's been fever free for five days so it sounds like she got the typical symptoms. But I didn't hear any news that I didn't hear that she'd gone to ICU or anything. She's just she's just went down with it so he's positive but he's a symptomatic. I think there's GonNa be a lot more of that. Also you have to. You have to understand that when people are talking when they share their stories. You know they go. Oh it felt like two hundred pound man was sitting on my chest I was a blitz or whatever but if you think about every story I've ever told about having the flu it's been like Oh. It was brutal. I couldn't sit up. You Know I. I literally crawled to the bathroom and like that kind of stuff and so the descriptions which sound horrific for most people a lot of people if you picture yourself describing your worst flu or food poisoning or some version of that probably sounds the same I think about. I've had last time I had the flu. Really badly was probably as two years into Jimmy started in his new show and Lynette was in vegas like a girls weekend an I. I was literally audibly groaning and laying in bed and like an trying to negotiate opening opening a can of soup and it was a big I. It was it was brutal and if I described it to you it would sound horrific but if I describe it to you and I said it was the flu. You wouldn't be nearly as scared as if I said it was something else because it was a heraldic description. So she's on the men and he has it now. I wonder if we'll find out. Then we're GONNA find out like if if it ever shows up with him or does he get on something or does he just quarantine like so positive and people say I guess you can have it for two weeks before the symptoms pop up. Does he do something about it? Maybe I'm naive number one. How does he got test? If he's a symtomatic I guess because his wife out it either way that's how they are there he is he's got the test and he's got it number two. I think I I've been reading up on it and I read that the hospitals for for the most part send you home to self quarantine if you don't have symptoms. You know what I mean if you're not experiencing shortness of breath or fever or whatever they're not going to accept you intrigued you. They're going to send you all been sake. Come back to get really sick. I think. That's that's what I've read genus having a situation with a family member WHO's Requiring some hospitalization and not not connected to corona virus but So she's having to put us on. Hold for a moment and deal with some urgent family. Business O'Brien and I will Cover during that that period of time when the Yeah Allie Wentworth. I'm obviously met at the groundlings later. Eighties her she's an interesting personality in an sorry for that great realized as I said I'm really added a lot. No no no. It's interesting that you brought that up. Not Nothing interesting about you or helpful. But what I'm saying she. She's she's interesting in that. There used to be celebrities back in the day when I would watch you know when I would watch game shows or I would watch the Gong show. It'd be like J. P. Morgan or PJ mole organ or whatever whoever they were there bunch of females. And you go. I don't know what they do other than their personalities. They're not really standups. They're not you don't really know him from an acting. Gig they're just kind of personalities and sometimes they're married to someone who's famous as well so it's sort of that well. Charro far alley in Charro on the personality scale chef charro played music and this crazy personality could you Gucci all the stuff but I think she played a serious Flamingo Guitar. Oh I love the FLAMENCO Winco. Sorry Flamingo Guitar. Yes I think. She was quite an accomplished player in the annals of history she was all like tits in hair like if. Gina could play the guitar all that as well but you know she putting competently yes. I don't know if I did match. Game with Ali Wentworth. I don't know what her claim to. Fame is other than in in a weird way. It's a bigger feather in your cap. Just be a personality and not known from this series or that series. You know just like literally. She's just known that has not badge of honor. Gone Away I'd been of reality. Shows like Allie Wentworth was allie worth. Yeah but like you know what I'm saying or Charro. Whoever like now that it's reality shows leg boy you said this already but wasn't Allie Wentworth on living color? I'm looking at it now. Yes in living color and Jerry. Maguire office space. I mean it's not like shot. It's Alex she didn't do any US she worked at the Albertson's and now she's trying or we know you know her name from something. Just it's just you don't it's not Lena Dunham or you go Lena Dunham but she did girls like you from that stuff. Chris ex PAT. Can you find Sharrow playing series guitar and it could be just making that up from an episode of Love Boat. But I feel like she did. She wasn't all who she coochie she could play. I think all right anyway. Sorry what else you got Gina. Well I know your kids were on board with friends. I know everybody was sort of interested in this friends reunion. But it's possibly not going to happen right now. They're e this is the quote unquote news from deadline. It's one of two things. They're either secretly taping it via zoom. Or it's just not happening until the Corentin over so I'm not sure what the news is but last month. Hbo Postpone Taping that one time. Special and alternative date for next month now seems out of the question. Therefore the reunion with all six actors won't be available when the H. Max launches. That was the big deal that they were launching the two hundred thirty six episodes of friends but unnamed insider claimed. The Courtney Cox arranged zoom meeting for all the co-stars almost weekly a sixth actor. Those doctors have discussed and brainstorm how they're going to do this. And according to the source there's zoom sessions have been brilliant fun There's some hilarious. I got all right second. Those guys have already made the GDP of a medium sized nation off this guy if he can other cool two million bucks a pop and they're fucking sitting in their sweat pants at home with zoom. I'M GONNA go ballistic like this. Drives me insane. How much money can somebody make off one goddamn franchise and now from home? Yeah at this point. Oh Privy Gig. Chris Charro Paul Anka Playing Guitar. Let's see if she's really accomplished at it House so she was accomplished all tits inhering. Interestingly her a you can you can posit I. You know it's it's Kind of interesting you know. We have pretty short memories. We don't have a lot of space on our hard drive to explore the nuances of of everybody. And so if you present yourself office Hoochie Coochie girl with the big big tits in the hair. Then I guess that's how we're going to remember Charro but she was probably great and he's a great guitar players. Well one exception the clock. That's right twice a day. Dolly Parton Dolly Parton plays multiple instruments. Wrote a million hits so Adam I don't know if you've heard about these dudes but I'd be surprised if you didn't. A nearly nationwide lockdown has decreased traffic and does congestion by at least fifty percent. That's nationwide and in some cities by more than ninety percent and the situation is ripe for record setting attempts at driving across the country which these guys did last week ball. Run Yep Let me see. I think they were driving an Audi a so my ragas told me I guess it was four guys and I guess they did it in twenty six forty. Some they did. They broke the last record By like forty five minutes from Let's see from Manhattan From Manhattan to the Redondo Beach Pier. Wait many questions Byron Beach why not Manhattan to Manhattan? Beats why road right onto the beach. It's an odd place to drive to. Somebody started this a million years ago and I don't know if it had anything to do with Hal Needham or how Needham just made the movie. Hal Needham would make all those burt reynolds movies. How need them was a stunt coordinator? Aitor who just kind of Said Fuck it. I'll be a stunt coordinator long enough. But he probably just saw how these movies were being made like. Everyone is just high on cocaine and doing what they wanted. And here's a fucking I'll make movies. And so how need them started? Making all these cannonball run movies and smoking the bandit movies and Probably did like the stuntman and stuff like and he didn't really have much of a script. He would just kind of hired. Burt Reynolds and dom deluise insolvency have added really need one in the girls in Latex bodysuits and Burt Reynolds what do you need driving a coon tosh? So that so he would he would preside over this stuff and I think he may have had something to do with the founding of the cannonball run but if you watched the first cannonball run movie from Nineteen I dunno seventy seven or something that just kind of lays it out they just start in a warehouse in Manhattan and they drive to the to the pier and and Guess Heaven. One thousand nine hundred eighty one. Is that the first gamble. Yeah and I guess they take the cars and the outfit them with Auxiliary Fuel Tanks. So they can you picture. It's literally just it. Looks like those big red plastic gas cans just lining their trunk so interesting. I was going to ask you how that works does that is that just for storage or is that actually feeding into the car. It looks like it's feeding into the car but I couldn't I couldn't tell you for sure and they I guess there's like a sanctioning body and and they go for it now. The thing is there's no traffic but the cops are out in full effect. I mean the cops are still out there writing tickets and going going Berserk especially with crime. Down what thirty? Four percent a lot of areas. So these guess how long you might already know this. But guess how long it's supposed to take to drive from Manhattan to Redondo. Didn't stop and you know. Stay in a motel a couple of days or whatever I don't know yeah. Tell us how long two hours driving with the posted speed limit. But they averaged one hundred five so they made it in twenty-six thirty eight and they California last month. Apparently we wrote more than five hundred citations for driving excess of one hundred miles an hour. The most common response for people pulled over in the pandemic as I thought cops weren't stopping people right now. Well it's funny. There's like nobody on the freeways and the cops are putting this stuff out there. It's like we're still writing tickets. It's still dangerous. You know I think people are going like thirty percent faster and whatever it is. We'll and I told you they`re. They're cycling through more red lights now. Oh good I feel bad bad. Well let me say this I hear. Here's what I would say. La You guys have done a Piss poor job of managing traffic. If you've if you've managed it at all and my lifetime in I have been subject to a hour. Twenty minute commute from like here at century city or here to Santa Monica taking meetings and whatever it is brutal and it is not managed in any intelligent way at all. This has gone on for my entire adult life and it will go on for the foreseeable future. There's one fucking window here. Could be five weeks. Could be nine. Weeks could be eleven weeks. I don't know what it is but it's a very small window where we can travel at a decent clip. Could you just give it to us this? I'm not? I'm not driving around seeing car on fire and rolled over and wrecks or anything people are just going about their business. They're just doing it a little faster. Clip that's all. I'm saying nothing inherently dangerous. There's nobody on the fucking freeway and that's what you say. We should be able to spot to drive at a speed. That is safe for our circumstances are is there a wall of water coming at US? No is there you know nothing. For our circumstances having five cars on the road as opposed to five hundred we are driving safe for our circumstances agreed. But they're never gonNA again everything. Just be careful. Be careful about the umbrella of safety. And how broad? That umbrella of safety can be an about people doing things in the name of safety they never talk about. We need to raise revenues or we still need to collect money. It's like it is unsafe to drive and be safe. Fifty-five Arrive Alive walk clicking her ticket like everything in the name of safety but is it all in the name of safety and as we get safer as a culture and as as as a society it just keeps growing this umbrella of safety everyone falls in it when you start having kids and the kids while the kids shouldn't come in at this time or the have to be dropped a rules rules rules rules safety safety safety safety and then when you factor kids in it becomes on steroids now now. It's like Super Safety. Super kids super rules. And that's okay to a point but at some point if you're just pulling out of your driveway and you're literally just going to the corner to do something and come back around. You should kind of be able to decide whether your seat belt is on or if your kid is buckled down ten ways to Sunday in a in a in a in a child seat there at some point we're going to have to be in charge of ourselves a little bit right and be careful about the safety umbrella expanding because it's going to keep expanding and it's like everyone thinks self quarantine or self distance and all that kind of stuff fine but when you start hearing about. Oh in Michigan. They're pulling over people that are driving and finding them for not wearing a mask in their car like alone. You know what I mean. It's a be careful everybody. It's a slippery slip breeze safety slope and it just keeps broadening its diabolical. Because as long as you couch it as safety. Nobody can disagree with that. You have the moral high start with the moral high ground. Well see you know it's an. It's an interesting thing that I was talking actually to Dr drew about earlier today. Which is I understand. This safety expansion concept vis-a-vis the government in the city and the powers that be because I've always built and if you build you have to pull permits and every year. There's a new set of rules that comes in under the umbrella of safety and it starts getting ludicrous at a certain point. You're like are you nuts. That's insane what you guys are suggested. Hey Man we're in earthquake country so it safety now every single one building and safety building in safety the fucking name is in the title building and Safety Department. The the rules start office. You know reasonable rules that have to do with construction and engineering. At a certain point they start going so fucking far off the rails that you is no longer about safety. It's about more or rules and more regulation. And if you study building and safety and you see what they had in place in the sixties the seventies eighties nineties it just. It's now at the point. I was just working on a project. It IS INSANE. Overkill insane overkill. What they're asking for now in the name of safety so just be careful because he keeps going. All you ever had to tell us was that they made you put a fence around a tree. That's nowhere near Your House. That's pretty much. The example we need to move to fucking tree was up on the side of the hill of billy. Goat couldn't get there and at a certain point. I just said all right. How about some of that? Orange Smash Plastics Shit. That I'll put up on some steaks or whatever no no chain link it needs to be chain link like you have to rent the chain link. You're not expensive as A. It's gotta go by the way it's not. Oh or you could appeal to our supervisor. You want your permit you 'cause they're not going to build on your own you will not build on your own fucking property we will shut you down if you do not comply. There's a safety or there's a I don't know I don't have the Oak. Is it endangered species? There's something there's more oak trees per capita where I live than any other place on the planet. Rock Thousand Oaks California. I know I'm I'm the mayor of Million Oaks California where I live. I walked from my house. I literally took a walk from my house. To mark. Arrogance is house the other day I was with my sister. We just took a walk around the neighborhood at some point. I kept commenting that some streets have so many trees that there's a full canopy. It's like walking through a tunnel like you. Just don't even see daylight but no the answer is I must put chain link fences around all the oak trees on I property or they will not in the name of. I don't know what but the point is. Be careful everybody it. It doesn't none of it falls under the heading of because we want more control and we want more money in all falls under the heading of safety and then the rules and nobody disagrees about safety I do. I do think there's a point when you can start doing more harm than good under the umbrella safety. All Right Gina. Let's do one more please. All right well I have the perfect one because I I can imagine. A lot of people are going through this. There's a new survey that since everyone's stuck at home and couples are together and you know. Couples are both working from home. A survey discovered that before the pandemic half of working adults were clueless as to what their partner really does for a living. Now that we're all stuck at home they're beginning to kinda learn kind of Suss it out a survey spokesperson said quote. It's funny how many people knew so little about what the other half does reliving. So we're spending working hours downtime. In the same space. It's sure to be a learning curve for everyone whether about job roles themselves or their partners personality beforehand. We had just a vague notion of what the other person did from in working hours. For example they have a lot of meetings or they're in an office where the most common responses to. What does your partner do for Work Well let's see. I've gleaned waves to the GRUB hub guy. That's is that GIG or hello. Hello and Goodbye Brian. Do you have that Joe McHale just made me? It just reminded me that. I went on that epic rant about the city in earthquake country. And all that with Joel McHale but Joel McHale on yesterday and Joel. Mchale never did build the pool in his house. Joe Mikhail just moved and asserting your pet do. We have that ran. Maybe not we could maybe dig up. Gop has the spousal. Oh that was actually fun fact. That was one of the drops you screaming. Nothing that was lost lost when some drops were mysteriously deleted from my computer over the holiday break and some Kayla sex sex weirdest thing as you look back on those Kayla. Sex Days is how incredibly difficult it is to basically launch a morning show in a major market and how we were extensively do link battle with the program director and the show that came after us in a constant like. It's like basically like saying we need you to run a marathon under two and a half hours and you're like okay. That's going to be tough. And then someone went but there's a guy. He's a coach in here to help anyone okay. Because I'm GonNa need all the help I get to run this marathon and under two and a half hours and that guy took an ashtray filled with sand in just dumped it. Down your fucking shorts and said Okay Take Off. Run like the wind and you went. What THOUGHT WE'RE GONNA? You're here to train me or help me or aid me. No I just dumped an ashtray filled with fucking sand and cigarette butts down your fucking underpants and then told you get and smack on the ASS. That's what essentially it was like doing. A radio show with Jack. Silver and frosty adding frank after US and part and Down Syndrome dog or death dog all all the people the fucking building it was. You're saying there wasn't strong organizational support. No fucking how binding being sniped at every. Turn all right. Well I'll tell you what we will try to run that crazy rant down and we'll play it for you guys Tomorrow all right Gina. Let's bring it home. You got it. I'm Gina Grad and. That's the news the news with Gene Grad. Well let's not forget about GEICO. You have homeowners insurance. You have renter's insurance. You want to bundle.

ep 74: Jim Morrison is not hanging out with Elvis, the Kennedys did not kill Marilyn

"Hello and welcome to use. Oh May pancakes for me to keep up little libraries popular. Evans's on Gilmore Girls. I am Taylor and I am at a secret location. I am Kyla and I am with they. Secret Group of people are they the illuminated possibly maybe even the mafia who were the knights. Templar where you need to steal the declaration of saying it Taylor. You blew my boy. Our lives are so mysterious. I know what secrets are you keeping for me? What theories are out there about us? I honestly I would be truly honoured. If they were conspiracy theories about our podcast that would mean there are a people not that there are interested people who write us very nice emails because there are but they don't seem like they're writing conspiracy theories about us they sound alike. They're just being nice in there interested but not interested enough to come up with conspiracy theories. I think it'd be really nice to to shift that and Just receive mail that theorizes about our true intentions behind this podcast and the hidden messages within each episode. Hey I agree. Can I give a shout out to one of these? Nice people helped us with a conspiracy theory. Oh okay then yes Conspiracy might be a strong word but it is a theory in it is an oddity in the Gilmore Girls Universe we got email from conspiracy. Theorist Stephanie. She doesn't self. Identifies conspiracy theorist national seeking the theme of this episode? We're GONNA call this. Stephanie said that she has only made it through her first seven episodes so she's just a brand new listener but she wanted to reach out to us about our Easter Egg. She said that she thinks our discussion about Richard leaving money for Luke in his will and not to Laura. Lie is a reference to an earlier episode. We had discussed this in an Easter egg segment. She says this made me smile. She says there wasn't episode. I don't know the specific one. 'cause I'm at work that story of my life? How many times have I been at work? Turn your remember. A Gilmore girls episode. I'm not exaggerating. That's a real thing. But in the episode Luke Goes Golfing with Richard. When Lucan liberalized dating Richard brings up to Luke to franchise. The diner in. Luke is not about it but goes along with what Richard Assane for the sake of Laura lie when she finds out she's so mad her dad would even bring it up per usual. But EILLY believe. That's why Richard Leaves Luke money and not laurey great job on the show. And maybe you revisited. This later in the episodes. I'm still listening while now. We have revisited it for sure. I emailed her back now. But now we definitely have and hopefully by the time you get to this hopeful you get to. This are still listening for many more episodes and you can respond to this. Follow up who knows. Or maybe you're Baath around bebop bugging around and not listening in order. Yeah I mean definitely he. He gives Luke that money because he originally wanted to still strange to me that he doesn't also give it to Laura. Light a franchise. But that's that's Richard. He gets something in his head. You know it's true. And sometimes when you have an untimely death a lot of times your Willa gnarly what you would have wanted it to be. Had you had the foresight or more opportunity to change it before he died. That's true or sometimes your Joan Crawford and you just don't leave your kids money. Yes sometimes you want them to learn Some sort of lesson for reasons that are well known to them. Well but guess what we're not talking about mommy dearest again today. Thank goodness What are we talking about today? We're talking conspiracy theories. I know everyone's very shocked. That's what we are giving. Yes couple of conspiracy theories because those are interesting. I recently heard a friend paddle off a whole myriad of conspiracy theories and not the aluminum but some other group. I don't know but I know that there are many conspiracy theorists out there lovers of conspiracy theories. I'm sure there are plenty. Podcast about the subject. A was found at least one when I was doing research very nice. But we're just GONNA talk a couple today because they're the ones that immigrants talked about. And what Gilmore girls talk about. We talk about. How has anything truer about my life and said you? That's basically what it comes to our life in a nutshell okay. Well speaking of which Gilmore Girls Episode. We're talking about today is Season four episode for chicken or beef question which by the way that title feel like everyone immediately knows wedding. I truly don't know if that's what I thought the first time I heard it but it makes perfect sense. I have no questions about this title. Some of them. I have questions about not this one. This one first episode October Fourteenth. Two thousand three in the plot summary is lower ally needs to get permits approved before they can move forward with the in in learns that business also involves backroom deals in Stars. Hollow Which on the scale of Backdoor Deals Pretty Tame Rory runs into dean? Who Invites her to his wedding. Yep Can I tell you something fun about this episode please do? It was in the news in the last few weeks hot because an interview Max Greenfield who you might know as Schmidt from new girl. Among other roles he has a cameo in this episode as one of Dean's drunken high school buddies for his Bachelor Party and he said people still tweet to him about this. Episode has almost girls fans so this just came up in a random interview recently. All share this in our tumbler. But I just thought it was pretty funny that this just happened to do it right before we were talking about it. You know that actor. He was also in Veronica Mars for a while. He had a recurring role commerce yet. He's a sweetheart. He is someone that I I wasn't just to in new girl because he didn't stand out to me and Gilmore girls of course but then going back and watching Veronica Mars. What and then Gilmore Girls. Whatever time I watched it after watching you girls like what so did know. Hughes around back. Monday sure was but before that happens. Lor Light In. Rory are having a conversation about the awkward invite. Dean has given to worry for his wedding fates making us. Help date lost cough up. Forty Bucks for a salad spinner form please. There is no fate. What do you mean there is no fate? Of course there is faith there is no fate. There's no destiny. There is no luck. Astrology is ridiculous. Tarot cards tell you nothing. You cannot read a poem. Tv's make tea and nothing else. Jim Morrison is not hanging out with Elvis and the Kennedys did not kill Maryland. So Taylor have you ever theorized about the Kennedys in Maryland or Jim? Morrison and Elvis. Well I've indulged in the chatter in that I more than once says come up before I don't even remember why but I have hosted a John F. Kennedy murder mystery themed party okay and Marilyn Monroe is one of the characters I mean is you can definitely. There's just so much hat gossip to indulge in there. So it's a theory. I've benefited from personally. Nice I don't think I've seriously considered any of these theories or at the end of the day. I'm just like it doesn't really matter. I how Elvis or the Kennedys dive. So I've just never really thought about it much. How about you while I definitely heard about? Kennedy's and Maryland. And Jim Morrison Dono. That is no who Elvis's so yeah have you heard of Elvis A couple of times mostly just I. I don't know him unless you say his last name. You know album Elvis Presley. Oh yes so to many elway I was gonNA say Castillo. No did I do all the wrong research. Want one just getting a joke all right. Do you WANNA kick off for conspiracy theories today. I think I should now. Here's I liked to go chronologically. I don't know there's something satisfying about that to me. However probably more of you've heard about the Kennedys in Maryland. So let's get right to it because you're floating through through people's minds Taylor you said you'd never seriously considered the idea that the Kennedys killed Maryland. We'll today you will. Oh I will. That's what this podcast is about It is so Marilyn Monroe. I hate that this is what she's always called always called a sex symbol. That is very outdated to say can you? Can't you just be like? She was a really popular woman. She was an actress and thought of is very beautiful. We have to say sex symbol. I'm onboard. Let's just abolish that okay? Cool abolished by so. It's a show officially well. Here's hoping I never accidentally say then but I'm on board with your thought process. Here's hoping I can knicks it for my vocabulary great team effort so Marilyn Monroe actress. Now you know I think people though refer to her as a sex symbol because her movies were not Particularly Popular I've watched. I haven't watched a full movie of her but I've watched little bits never stood out to me as like a great actress. You mean her movies weren't popular or she was not agreed actress. Both okay she had some definite flops but some popular ones okay. I see what you're saying. I was like because there are some definite bona fide classics in there. Like some like it hot. Yes that's the one But certainly a closer to her death she was having flops or just wasn't giving movies because of her instability so Marilyn Monroe had some relationships with multiple Kennedy brothers which that is something I did not know I thought it was just JFK. But actually Roberts as well now we did know about her relationship with Arthur Miller. Thanks to Miss Selene She didn't remind him of a book on our head. What was that to wear hats? It reminds remind him of the book but she didn't do it and look where we are. Yes and Robert can news the Attorney General at the time of course brother. Jfk was president so very high rules important roles to then have it. Come out about you have in affair with an actress. Not a good look. They like to keep those things quiet. So Maryland died in nineteen sixty two on her bed in her bedroom. She was found naked under her sheets with her hand on the telephone and pill bottles everywhere so as an overdose her housekeeper found. Her doctor came pronounced her dead and it was ruled a suicide very quickly because of the amount of drugs that she took it was definitely. Death was the intention because if it was accidental than probably would have just taken like you know a couple extra sleeping pills but she taken something like forty fifty. I mean it was some monstrous number and by looking at how much of the toxins in her body now the pills were. The physical pills were not found in her stomach. They had already been soaked up by your system. Now there's part of the problem is that wouldn't all these pills that she taken? Wouldn't there be some leftover trace of them. The doctor said because she was already addict she her body. You're if you're an addict. Your body absorbs the pills faster than someone who's not taking so many pills so she could have absorbed them in the amount of time now so some theorize. It wasn't injection. Someone else injected her with this large amount because I would just be. The liquid wouldn't find any of that mix in with everything else or you know. I understand biology so to kind of kick it off a little more. Recently Maryland's death has come up because of the unsealed files from the JFK murder. In in it there's letter from the FBI. Warning Robert Kennedy that a book was GonNa come out about his affair with Marilyn Monroe which was gonNA come out in nineteen sixty four two years after her death strange death of Marilyn Monroe which gives a lot of credibility to the fact that he was having affair the FBI was like hey a book is coming out about it. We know it's druce station probably I don't know be prepared. Does if it wasn't real then they just dismiss it in your at any attention. Yeah and Maryland was kind of being like she velika. Just being passed back and forth between the brothers wasn't romance. It was just sexual encounters sexual relations. Although that's did fine isn't it Clinton? Now that's another prison little. Not Love Triangle. I guess sex triangle okay so. Cbs had it not sex. Symbol triangle known so steinem. Jim Baker is a Marilyn Monroe expert. And he was recently came out with a book about on the Fiftieth Anniversary of her passing and he went on. Cbs News to talk a little bit about some of the inconsistencies that he and others have found in this whole case. So I'm GONNA play a little bit of that for you. Put it a just been really shady. Not completely thorough. Police work that you know what maybe Marilyn Monroe. She really did. Just commit suicide and the right investigation. Didn't take place after she could have committed suicide. Sure however the big thing that argues against that was the the the amount of drugs that were found in her bloodstream. In order to have the level of drugs that she had in her bloodstream she would have had to have taken at least fifty sleeping pills in an incredibly short period of time in order to to get to that right and in addition to that there was no water glass found in her locked bedroom and there was no water in her locked bedroom. How DOES THAT HAPPEN MR continues? I liked it. The anchor said could have just been bad. Police work like they took things down wrong or being sloppy. Yeah that's an option but also no water clawson. She had to take all those pills. I mean you can't do that just swallowing. That would be tricky for sure. You can maybe get one or two down. I can't imagine fifty now but again maybe there was actually one glass. Maybe the housekeeper saw it. And just you know Per you picked it up and cleaned it. You know. Didn't think anything of it and then here years later. That's a reason why people are questioning that but also the the idea that it was. Those drugs were injected into her. There was a small bruise on her low back that the coroner did deemed just an accident. You know we bruise ourselves all the time running. Well at least I do and I can't tell you not too long ago. I literally ran into a Cabinet. Door had a little bit of a black. I just hoped no one asked me no good story there anyways so people thought well. Maybe that's where they injected her. That's smaller so what time you told me you did research on this more. Recently I heard a theory that they had injected her under her toenail or something. So that you wouldn't be able to find the injection site. That sounds awful. I don't understand how that would get into your bloodstream. So that's why I don't know if that theory has any credence yes that's not one that I saw. Just the putting it in the Bruce in her burr where the bruise then appeared on her back. See The toenail theory. Oh sorry to maybe. We need to put a content warning on this be warned. Say on people think that they were worried about her revealing the affairs. And so that is why the Kennedys themselves or likely. Someone else took care of her. Some people said that she had an argument with Robert Kennedy on the phone that night about their relationship. Supposedly I mean there's so many supposedly just because you know one person said it and Maryland. Not here to say speak herself. They also say that she thought that JFK was going to marry her and she talked to Jackie o about or just Jackie at the time and I mean all these. There's a lot out there Taylor who boy but she did talk to several people on the phone that night. That is pretty well. Agreed upon Maryland's last call. We think was from actor. Peter Lawford but more notably brother-in-law to the Kennedys. He was an actor in such classic films. Ocean's eleven and royal wedding but I had no idea and one of the versions of Little Women Nice. I had no idea that he was a Kennedy connection. Yeah so in other little fuel to the conspiracy flame. Us inviting her to come over and he said that she sounded like she was under the influence of drugs. Or maybe under the influence of Kennedy's she told him to say goodbye to pat his wife. Who Was Kennedy? Say Goodbye to the president and say goodbye to yourself. Because you're a nice guy and then she drifts off so that did sound like her saying goodbye like she was going to kill herself Or at already taken the pills so so anyways But in one thousand nine hundred eighty two so these conspiracy theories. They've been around floating around right after she died and nine hundred ninety two they actually lost Angeles County District Attorney opened up the case looked into it but they decided they didn't find any evidence to support any of the theories so But it's still be bounced around of course because he could have been in on a to. Do you see any evidence to support the theories. Are you convinced by any of them? Here's something though. I questioned about a lot of cases from before basically before like modern day. Forensics how really did they find anyone like? I just feel like how could anyone have gotten caught for murder back in the day like they don't have your DNA it have to be like asking around and finding holes in a story. I guess do they know John Wilkes Booth Killed Abraham Lincoln? Maybe he was just another good ideas. One getting into this conspiracy theories but right booth was just a Rut. Nice guy in the wrong place at the wrong time but I just think sometimes think like wouldn't it have been the easiest thing to get away with murder? Just wear mask. Make sure no one knows who you are down. I'M GONNA keep tabs on you at all time to make putting on a masking killing people now. Yeah no I see. You can't do it anymore because fingerprints DNA gets everywhere a little bit of your skin right. Or maybe that's just what. Csi wants us to believe so. That won't kill each other. I don't know they took fingerprints. Then that was a thing by then a real well in Maryland Rose Day. Yes as like. Whoa adventure wasn't around then but for Maryland. Yes that that got a little off the rails but that's conspiracy theorizing. You just got to go out there. Find the retake hold I know. Create the story. The story is not there. You make it yourself I think Taylor being pretty obvious that we're not a conspiracy theorists no. We're not good at this. We're doing yeah no. We could do better but I don't want to. I'm fine where I am true. So so There's that CNN did a little bit about the Kennedys. In Maryland. Eleven boxes of files Hollywood spies slash private eye fred. Oh Tash socked away in a storage unit in the San. Fernando Valley were reviewed by the Hollywood reporter. This was someone who had wiretaps all over town was listening to some of the biggest stars an era when some of these revelations will be published in Magazines Matt Bellamy is the executive editor for the Hollywood reporter. Otas claims that he had recordings of JFK. Having sex with Marilyn Monroe. He spoke about this as if it was a common knowledge thing. Oh Tash worked for members of Hollywood's elite to dig up dirt on their enemies in not left behind before his death reviewed by the Hollywood reporter. Tash provides salacious details of the long rumored affairs between Marilyn Monroe and both President John F. Kennedy and his brother Robert Kennedy. He claims he listened to Marilyn Monroe having sex with John F. Kennedy and in the hours before her death she says. Monroe had a blow out. Fight with Bobby Kennedy over their relationship. He claims Monroe complained. She was being passed around like a piece of meat. Tash claims he heard Bobby Kennedy trying to quiet monroe down with a pillow. So neighbors wouldn't hear her shouting but the audiotapes his nose are based on have since disappeared. Some of these files that he that we reviewed contain elements that are not one hundred percent verifiable they are his recollections in his recollections to his daughter so this Guy Oh tash guess I guess how we should know him. This guy was actually the inspiration for the for the jake character on in Chinatown. Forget it Jake Chinatown. Who knew somebody did not mean now? We know I'll let you that something I found in my research on Turner Classic Movies in just didn't feel the need to mention because it wasn't relevant at the time now it is nowadays so were maybe someone deleted it from my notes. Because they didn't want me to share it on the podcast. You're okay theory. So basically based things how Maryland. Get all those pills in your system wide. How did the pills get absorbed so fast and Kennedy's government and bi protect or there to protect themselves for still a question. People are talking about today. Lips nut dig into it. We're not a political podcast. So Taylor have I convinced you? Can you questioning everything? Oh I'm questioning literally everything I knew about Marilyn Monroe because you've told me more about her tonight than I probably knew excellent aside from her marriage to Arthur Miller which I knew some things about should we talk about some of Luke's other conspiracy theories though sure well look is not only concerned about the Kennedys not killing Maryland. Or Rather. He's not concerned at all. He is convinced. We gotta talk about Jim Morrison. Do you know Jim Morrison. I do not know I realized I knew even less about him that I knew about the rolling stones. I did not remember that. He was the lead singer of the doors. Another rock and roll band. I know I knew that. At some point but wait. Why did they say oh? I don't know if the doors are. Oh they were a rock and roll band in the sixties coal contemporaries of the rolling stones. Have you heard of them? I think so. Can you name the lead singer? Keith Richards Mick Jagger just keeping your sharp well we don't need to go into a deep dive of the doors to know the story of Jim Morrison really to get into this conspiracy. It's another death conspiracy. We're talking about death today. Call US. A true crime. Podcast today. All about conspiracy theories. The story of Jim Morrison's death to get some context. You have to know that. Nineteen sixty nine he. I don't know why felt the need to expose himself to a crowd at a concert in Florida. And he got into some legal trouble for that as well as this article quoted as indecent exposure in profanity. I don't understand fully how that works but apparently it was a big scandal. Lots of concerts got cancelled. Big PROBLEM FOR THE DOORS FOR JIM. Morrison they start having quite a few doors shut on their own faces. Wow that was just spot on. And between that and some other troubles he moved to Paris in March of Nineteen. Seventy one with his girlfriend. Pamela Courson and apparently he gained a lot of weight while he was there. People weren't really able to recognize him anymore. His health wasn't great and he was found dead in a bathtub on July third that year in his apartment and it was ruled a heart failure. There was no autopsy done because the French authorities just said there's no foul play. We don't have to do an autopsy interesting. He was known for his drinking. Apparently he could drink thirty six peers in a day so they thought it was just heart failure from heavy drinking. So that is the official story. Let's talk about the more fun things to talk about. Al and their two kinds of theories. Jim Morrison their theories about his death in theories that he's still alive. I know plot first. Let's talk about if he died. What could have happened? If it wasn't heart. Failure from lots of drinking some of his biographers? Think that he probably suffered an accidental heroin overdose which he was a known drug user and so is his girlfriend. So it's definitely possible and it is apparently a thing that if you have overdosed if you put yourself in a hot bath it could ease some of the symptoms of a heroin overdose. So they think that's why he potentially could have been in the bathtub and he could have died from the overdose not from the drinking. There's another theory out there that the singer Marianne Faithfull who used to date Mick Jagger she at the time was dating a drug dealer named. And I'm going to butcher this French. Jean de Blue Tail Fruit. I know that's fruit diligent. Whatever Joey triviality says Jean Dubuffet he was a drug dealer and he was known for being the drug dealer to the stars apparently he. She thinks he sold him some bad heroin. That was really strong. There are also rumors that he sold Janice Joplin the heroin that killed her there is also a theory from a former nightclub manager seem burnett that he died in the bathroom stall of a popular nightclub nearby. The Rock and roll circus on brand. He thinks that the drug dealers potentially found his body. There took him back to the apartment tried to do the put him in the TUB to help with the overdose thing but when they realized he was dead they just bailed and tried to pretend they were never there which apparently worked. If that's what happened so those are the potential theories of how he could have died? That aren't confirmed and since they never did the autopsy which I do think that's weird. You should do topsy. Especially it's a famous person. Everyone's GonNa ask a thousand questions. Yeah however not. Everybody buys all those theories for several reasons. One Jim Morrison was a big fan of poetry. That's part of partly why he was in France to work on poetry. Apparently he was a big fan of the poet. Arthur Rimbaud who faked his own death in fled to So they think he could have had some inspiration from someone. He admired also supposedly. They never saw the body before it was buried at a very small funeral. So people are saying we never saw this body media didn't go in the ground we don't know then there have been some other more Some people say there have been sightings of Jim Morrison for he. Yes I know. So there's a New York native who goes by the name broken star. He says he's found an aged. Jim Morrison Alive in New York City. He's been following around this guy. Who Calls Himself Richard? Who doesn't say whether or not he's Jim Morrison. They just think he looks a lot like Jim Morrison. Ko He could be in New York City also in two thousand sixteen snowpacks reported that there were these were debunked is false. But you know conspiracy theories they say that Jim Morrison was found alive at a Paris retirement home. Just another option for you. And here's probably my favorite theory about Jim. Morrison's potential future that he still alive in running the Jim Morrison Sanctuary ranch in Oregon but he goes by the name. Bill lawyer sure that sounds like this smart move and I just. I want to read you something. I just found a treat of a personal article. Here this is from night wire dot net. According to their about page they capture the true essence of Pittsburgh. Their goal is to make you smile. Lighten your day in lift your spirits. They are never political. Don't make statements. We offer pure entertainment. That will tickle your funny bone so I'm not US. It's very unclear. What exactly is going on with this website for one. But you know what I realized while I was researching for this normally. I go out of my way to make sure I have reliable. Sources this episode. I threw that standard. Because that's not where the fun stuff you gotta find the weird websites in just entertain goofiest stuff. So here's just this little personal article here from night where night wire dot com it's called. Is Jim Morrison Alive by Superman Morrison? Supposedly I guess that's their username. Super Monkey know nothing about this. It's not I don't know anything about them so he starts out saying I love a good conspiracy theory just as much as the next guy but mostly I find them entertaining and don't really believe them. Good start we know. This guy's not just believe in everything so I present to you an interesting scenario as presented to me at the robby. Krieger concert last month at the Palace. Theatre. I run into someone I've known for quite some time a person I consider extremely credible. I'm very confident. This person is not crazy so with the concert. I mentioned to this friend. Let's call him Dave that I have to meet robby. Krieger backstage he quickly replied you know ray before he died and all those guys. I have a history with them. Unclear who ray is is that a nickname for robby. Krieger don't know introduces me to his girlfriend. I inquired a Dave's girlfriend. How do you know the doors? She is standing behind. Dave she smiles looks at Dave and turns and walks away silently. Dave says Oh. It's a long story five minutes pass. David I are watching Robbie just the two of us. He proceeds to tell me that his girlfriend is Jim. Morrison's daughter obviously. I'm a little shocked. He swears to me. It's true gyms alive. He says Jim currently resides on a ranch outside Las Vegas on Lake Isabella. He says that all of the members of the doors are aware. He's not really dead. They've all met with him in private and respect his wishes to live under the name William Lawyer. He's been working as a rancher for the past. Twenty years lives a quiet simple life with his wife and raising horses and he just continues on. Oh yes here's my favorite part. Then Dave pulls out his iphone and starts showing me pictures he personally took some with him in the pictures with this current Jim Morrison whose a little older in gray hanging out with his family and that states. He's been to his house and they talk all the time. Oh boy and then he gets into this history of Jim Morrison and about these other supposed sightings N. Just you know what a treat. I'm GonNa put this whole personal article. I just want you to know it ends with this line. Interesting question. Mark factor fiction data. You decide so. This article is just a true tree. Made me smile. Thank you super monkey for that. Wow Okay so you know what though Mavericks Spec to anyone who's fake their own death 'cause like that takes a level of commitment. I don't understand well. If you have respect for Jim. Morrison Aka William lawyer who faked his own death. Get Ready. Because I've got another conspiracy theory for you. Oh boy we established you've heard of this Guy Elvis once or twice will. This story is gonNA sound a little familiar. I promise you. I did not accidentally reread the same article in. Put it under Elvis This is gonNA sound familiar. But Elvis the official story. He died at age. Forty two on August sixteenth. Nineteen seventy seven at his graceland home in Tennessee. They say he died of heart. Failure was not in good health and he might have also been on drugs. But I want you to know there are a lot of people in this world that think Elvis is alive. Yeah you know that is something I have heard about. So have I but I did not know the intricacies of all the possibilities of why this might be kind of judiciary some of these with you. Please still will. There's a series of reasons I I'm gonNA tell you the basis for why Elvis may be alive after all these years one. We can't see the death certificate. What do you mean it? It is not allowed to be seen until twenty twenty seven fifty years after he's passed though. That's an issue of Tennessee wa so but we haven't seen the death certificate so only seven more years that's true hoover close. Can't wait countdown timer. Ooh also there were been. There's been speculation that it wasn't really his body in the ascot at the funeral. Footage shows pall bearers struggling to lift a nine hundred pound copper coffin out much like friend going around stars hollow. This sounds ten times worse literally ten times the weight the King. Of course himself he put on some weight but that seems a little ridiculous. So there is a theory that the casket had a cooling system in it Aka. The kind you would use to keep a wax dummy for melting on a summer day. Apparently Elvis's cousin Jean Smith thought the body looked a little strange. He said his nose. Kinda was peggy looking. His right side burn was sticking straight out and that his hairline didn't look so great and apparently his hands were to smooth and he just didn't think looked like his cousin. Elvis maybe that guy had never seen a dead body before because you get a little funky. It's true I don't know I wasn't there. There's also some suggestion that there may have been a helicopter that flew in and out of Graceland. The day he died so he could have possibly left in gone to Bermuda. Or maybe even Bahama Kokomo. Maybe I don't know there's also the curious fact of the spelling of his middle name on his tombstone Apparently it's spelled a run as key and peele would say on his tombstone when normally only spelled it Arun just with a but people also said he has spelled it both ways in his lifetime. So that's just another alive. I'm just saying maybe it was a clue I didn't die. I'm still alive. They wouldn't have spelled. My name comes out there okay. Also there've been a couple of interviews with this family members that make people wonder in two thousand five his wife. Priscilla was on Oprah show in. She said it's exactly what he said the other day. Talking about Elvis. She corrected herself to what you said the other day. No also at least I'm Marie was on Larry King. And she seemed to avoid a question about whether or not she still communicated with her father. Because it's a really weird question to ask I mean Oh okay And just the facts here. Okay here's probably. I think the most detailed reason why Elvis might have faked his death. There's an author. Her name is Gail Brewer. Giorgio she wrote in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight bestselling book called. Is Elvis alive which I think you can guess what her answer is. She said she went through thousands of FBI DOCUMENTS. Fbi unsung hero of this episode in. She said he had to go into a witness protection program. Do I know if Elvis is alive today? No I don't know but I do know he didn't die on August sixteenth. She says the FBI asked Elvis to be an undercover agent in nineteen seventy six to help infiltrate a criminal organization called the fraternity which was made up of racketeer's he volunteered because he loved his country respected the FBI according to her and they had him set up this he was trying to sell an airplane. Or something to one of these racketeers but they found out he was a mole and they had to put them into witness protection to save him also. The same person says that she has seen Elvis's death certificate unclear. How since it's not available until twenty twenty seven and the medical report in a letter that Elvis wrote to President Nixon and says all the same handwriting and she had a phone conversation the nineteen eighties with a man who said he was Elvis and he said he wanted to go into hiding to escape fame. So these are all the appear reasons Elvis could have faked his death. Gone into witness protection. Wanted to get away from the fame. Lots of things. Apparently don't add up no interest so we gotta talk about where Elvis went. Yeah if it wasn't just the helicopter I want you to know there have been a lot of elvis sightings since his death has happened in Las Vegas Woo there are sightings there all the time but these aren't the kinds of sightings I'm talking about. These are the kinds of sidings. I'm talking about the one cited by the Elvis sightings society founded in nineteen eighty nine a society for a better. They site him. Oh yeah well. The first sighting was right after his death. There was a man seen at the Memphis Airport Memphis Tennessee who purchased a one way ticket to Argentina. And apparently this guy going to Buenos Aires looked like Elvis and he gave the name John Burroughs which was often his alias at hotels when Shah now never mind say there were no international flights. Going OUT OF MEMPHIS at this time in nineteen seventy seven just putting out there. It was head also later that year at Graceland there was a guy who took some pictures of the Pool House in a few years later while looking at these photos with a met defend glass. He says he saw an elvis like figures sitting in the doorway. Kodak photos has confirmed. This photo was not doctored so it seems like somebody was looking out there. However Ellison's good buddy Joe esposito says it was a guy named Al strata near No. I wish that everyone could see your your face. Stay this look at a tragedy of a podcast face for the movies. Well gotTa keep going here though because this is just. I'm just started in nineteen eighty-four sports agent Larry. Kolb was next to a guy who looks like Elvis in a photograph with Muhammad Ali Jesse Jackson. Kolb showed the photo. Saying it wasn't Elvis but if you ask Mohammed Ali he said that's my friend Elvis at what stage in homilies life was that S. nineteen eighty four. Now that guy. We noticed working media circus. But maybe he's telling the truth and nobody's listening to him. You don't know now also like this article puts it. What would you do on your eighty second birthday if you are one of the biggest stars in the world and had been pretending to be dead for almost four decades head to Graceland? Obviously there's a photo that's on. The Elvis Presley is alive facebook. Page showing a man with a white beard insecurity personnel. Who fans think could be Elvis with the security guard at graceland on his birthday and then in twenty sixteen they think there's a guy working as a groundskeeper graceland that they think could be Elvis. Same I don't know if it's the same dude grey-haired baseball cap. How old would elvis being in two thousand sixteen? He died at forty two in nineteen seventy seven so he'd be eighty right around there. Yeah that's a low old for grounds keeping. But he's giving the peace sign to the camera and people think that means. I'm okay I elvis. I feel like if I were Elvis and I was getting up there in age. I just like you know what I'm just going to reveal it because otherwise you die and then maybe it comes out and you don't get to enjoy the crazy. Well how do you know? He's not enjoying singing. Because there's also a theory that he is alive in preaching the good word as a pastor in Arkansas who sings? He has a striking resemblance in his looks and his singing voice in some say even his sermon sound like the king in his auto biography. Now there have been some other random sightings many of them in the eighties. I don't know why someone said. She saw Elvis standing in line at a supermarket in a white jumpsuit. You purchasing an electrical fuse. There was also the story that he was buying whoppers at Burger King. Somebody quoted in the Los Angeles Times said is what gives us account eerie credibility. Is that Burger? King was by far ELVIS'S FAVORITE. Fast food chain chick fillet now you know. Tastes Change Dono. But let me tell you. Here's my all time favorite theory. This this is just my favorite. Let me I will put this in our Tumbler. So everyone can see it. You can't really put this in a podcast. It's more of a visual thing. So what you can't see on a podcast but you can see in our temblor so the show. Podcast TABLOID DOT COM is a clip from the Nineteen Ninety holiday comedy classic directed by Christopher Columbus and written by one of my all time favorites John Hughes home alone and the scene. In which Catherine O'Hara playing poor little MacAulay culkin's mother is stuck at an airport in? She is trying to get the heck out of Scranton and just before John. Candy comes and says Hey. Do you want to hop along in my Polka bus of a better word and get to Chicago? You can see a bearded man in the background in a lot of people think. That's Elvis as an extra in the film because that's what you do when you're hiding out. Well apparently Chris Columbus his previous film had something to do with kids kidnapping Elvis and they theorize. Elvis reached out to Chris. Columbus said I liked. The movie cannot be in your next one. There are other clues such as MacAulay culkin's singing white Christmas with his hair slicked back. They say it's a tribute to Elvis. And also if you really okay also if you rearrange. The letters in his character named Kevin. Mcallister you can spell. I am Elvis now and this is just. This gives me hope every holiday season. I'm GonNa Watch this movie every time I watched that movie. You think about it now. Can You really rearrange the letters? You have to leave some of them out. Oh My Gosh. I just want you to know so. These are options. If Elvis is alive e seemed to be witness protection working at Graceland being a pastor casual movie extra you know just. I'm not totally convinced. I have to say but it's I'd be excited if I thought I saw Elvis. That'd be cool but I don't think I would think that I saw him because he's dead our. Ap I don't know how to transition from home. Alone two Gilmore girls. But should we. Should we talk about Gilmore girls again? Yeah we become a home. Alone Extras podcast. Both good options. So Taylor basically these. These theories are far out there. You know I I could be convinced of the Kennedys Killing Maryland. I'm not but I could be. However people faking. Their own. Deaths is a lot more difficult to believe. Yes mad props to you if you need to do it in you do it. I mean the witness protection program. Is I think a real thing I can believe that. So I think that Luke Sane. There's no faith there's no destiny. I think people use fate and destiny not in such like hard fast like the crystals I dunno although some people maybe do but I guess for me. I think like fate and destiny. I don't mind using those words because sometimes things happen. You're like that is so weird fate you know but as he progressed everything else. Yes Yep Yep loop here right. So are you not convinced that Elvis went to Burger King in the eighty s? Yeah you know. I'm just not although they didn't have you know. Overeats or door dash or Grub or all of those things so you know handing destroyed somehow. Can you imagine being a door dash deliver in you? They open the door. And it's Elvis. Snap a photo on by yet. Prove it yeah I think yeah. I think loops audie something here. I think he's making his point. Although I think he's being a little melodramatic in his own way yeah I think Laura Lion Royer basically saying it's getting harder and harder to say no to this thing we don't really WanNa do and Luke Assane basically you're saying Elvis is alive so Taylor so Kyla that's our show. That's our shoe that's are so it's a conspiracy theory. Yes today. We learned the Kennedy Brothers had Maryland killed. Jim Morrison in El Nino. John Wilkes booth was just really misunderstood. Yeah we're out there for you. All you misunderstood people faking your own death thing murdered by this guy. John Wilkes booth. He was free. He faked his own. Death can dig my heels in on that one Lincoln still alive. Yeah Abraham Lincoln faked his own debt. He's together he yeah he just wanted to be on our money okay. Yeah that's how conspiracy theory start. Go finish them in an email to us so we can read them as a joke but don't leave him on the Internet. Don't spread conspiracy theories don't do it. We don't support it especially about modern day stuff. I don't mind so much old. You know things that are are long past you know. can theorize how have fun but not about stuff apnea right now guys you get in searcy theories we don't know nobody no not a fan except for the ones we've talked about where we're yeah we're definitely on board were thousand percent serious.

That's been abandoned because taking care of fishes fishes a pain great question. I don't remember specific v. I remember bubbles so there was definitely water in there where their temple they're like fans or was it just you and like whoever it is a you emailed no no it was just me and i remember whether it was. It's this person exists. They were rushing because they're trying to get to the remote doc and they kind of almost said enjoyed a couple of drinks.

There is going to be a remote that day and they left you alone in their plays with an aquarium with bubbles i drinking and then they were going to meet you at the remote while they're just like you know have fun at the remote have a good time you know whatever and then the next thing i remember is the remote within some sort of like a hall or banquet or something and we're not a nice. Were there a lot of people there. I was a little underwhelmed by the attendance to be honest while you're also drunk or not. That's true yeah yeah. It was how many drinking booze is take drunk. Oh wow back then quite quite a few. I would say you know eight milwaukee's best on a good day. It has this reoccurring dream that you keep having every three years or so so you say it's a person that's associated with this show that email that invited you into their gated community condo yet. You still haven't revealed the name of the person on the shell. Is it just a faceless person that it just assume they're associated with showers in an actual person on the show like roy. I don't know because i i don't remember the email you know the dream and i actually had a couple of emails since then and the only i did some research only email email that i can find for multiple emails his november two thousand eleven. I just emailed kansas dan dan and said it's six forty five kim. Kim and i'm still held over cures. Wow not the dream. I expected when we when i saw on the screen. We had a guy with his show dream.

I mean you don't know it was it was younger. It was a younger person. I'd say late twenties early thirties if i if i you know once again spotty myself out because i live in a gated condo and i often just invite complete complete strangers to my home but i've never had a fish tank so it came possibly be made so fish tank email remote sad location than anything else.

I know i'm sort of reputed as like the music snob tall not yeah i love music music really my passion and i reached reached out and made friends with a couple of dudes at ended up creating a music festival called miami beach pop facet happening just down the block in november between on the sand of south beach between fifth and tenth right outside of our clevelanders studio and i caught up with one of the founders of the festival asheville one of my friends paul pack who comes from bonn ruin outside lands because i maybe a lot of people in our audience are fascinated about music festivals how one gets into that that industry and paul has really cool background in that he <hes> organized original bonnaroo super jam so he's worked with massive collections of <hes> incredible artists on these great great collaborations and we'll get into what it means to build a music festival from scratch and what you can expect from this year's inaugural miami beach pop fez so hopefully really alike it. I'll try to make it as entertaining as possible for you is bonnaroo. Anything like dunkers great questions not at all the san. Perhaps i'll learn all about it. Dunk crews were pretty fired.

Six secondly is <hes> loss relative here but this was just all a play to get me to watch the dunker commercials <music> <hes> anyways here's self-indulgent interview i did with my friend paul pack. Hopefully you enjoyed. It's a mystery crate straight and as you guys know this is a bit of a self indulgent project for the day and lebatardshow was stu gods in the shipping container and i wanna welcome in my friend and paul peck now. Paul peck is the co founder of music festival that is coming in miami beach miami beach pop and i linked up with paul well a couple years ago when he was exploring this whole idea and i've been lucky enough to sort of see the festival grow from infancy stages and i dunno no no sort of like a like a miami embassador to what paul and his tremendous team is trying to accomplish here. We'll get into that in a little bit but for the audience i wanna introduced paul peck who has amazing credentials in the industry as you know from following me on the show and social media. I love music festivals. Paul was one of the founders of oak koby which i dearly miss it was wonderful festival year one expected all these sorta hiccups and it was camping festival and it was quite honestly the best festival experience i ever had and before that paul came from bonnaroo and outside lands paul for those those who are bonnaroo on rubens is out there call paul. They are monorovia theon rubens for those about a ruby ends. You may be familiar with the super jam. That is paul's baby. Paul pack founded the the super jam concept so paul. Thank you so much for taking the time to join us. I have so many questions about miami. Beach pop very excited about all that but i wanted to get into your history in the business because i think a lot of people are interested in music festivals as a whole people sort of fantasy book music festivals all the time. It's a really cool call dream job. How did you get involved with the music festival business. It all started back at my time in new orleans so i was always a really passionate music fan as as a kid and then i went to new orleans and i had this awakening to all this new type of music and really food too so i went from being this person that thought i liked one kind of music one type of food one type type of you know just a little bit more of a specific tastes in quickly realized that i liked everything and i liked this idea of bringing different flavors together and i was in the fortunate position that i started pretty young in my history in new orleans has a college kid started managing some fans started working closely with some artists artists and i was doing internship for my favorite club in the world which is tip athena's and i had this vision for a show which was an all star tribute. You stevie wonder playing. All of my favorite stevie wonder songs live. I was like gosh. Why can't i hear all these incredible. Stevie wonder songs performed in this amazing club by some of these world class musicians sion's in new orleans and the club after me begging them for a date gave me the date and eventually we did the show and i got all these artists is to perform it and i worked with a set list and it was a total chaotic thing and it's its own long story and i was this twenty year old longhaired kid putting the show on but the show was a big success success and financially. I was able to bonus the artists and i treated them really well and i had a good reputation with artists and my band were doing well and and i was just <hes> really immersed in the music community at a very young age in new orleans when i graduated the superfly team that original producers bonnaroo hired me and a year later i was you know on the grounds upon real when we're putting it all together so you <hes> specifically worked on the super jam was that right away you came with that idea because your background with the senior tribute or did you sort of learn the business from within before you <unk> of for maybe you're before you actually approached the producers of bonnaroo with this concept for the super jam so super jam was a term. That superfly started four. I started working with them but it was always the kind of show that i gravitated toward and done a couple of these large-scale sort of collaboration shows and when i came in it was natural for me to start producing. They're super jams in the first. One that i ever did was before the first bonnaroo and it was with quest love george porter from the meters. We started off at this incredible incredible show it was i think a week before mardi gras then i was kind of almost by default tasked with doing the super jam bonnaroo. The first year was a lot less of a well oiled machine than it is now a little bit of like we had a great team and a very experienced team but it was worth getting in this and we're gonna work really hard and see what's going to happen and it was absolutely myself in the producers sending you know credential packages in meal tickets artists on the road and like dealing with that and giving people corrections on the phone because it was way before iphones. The super jam was a slot on stage two on sunday that all weekend. We were just telling people come here at this time. That's the super jam all right. We got a drummer. We got the guitar player. We got the bass player and we just told all these artists show up there and it was a mystery to all attendees. Wendy's it was a true jam. It was come by the stage at this time in. We're gonna see what happens and we you know so fun. It was like the people from galactic and string cheese incident and karl denson n._c._a._a. In north mississippi allstars and michael franchi and it just was no set lists no plans all these musicians are just so talented and so comfortable on the fly that it was pretty magical thing but it was total afternoon daytime show on a huge stage which isn't really the way that we did the super jams or did the super jams in later years. It was more like late night vibe hint in much more rehearsed than this well. I wanna get into that because i think probably the most famous famous because i think it was part of a larger ad campaign. I think it was associated with sort of car. Commercials was the collaboration between scroll ix and the doors and you produce reduce that one is that <hes> probably the most famous super jam. Which one did you have the most fun working on. There were so many of them that were so fun. I don't wanna put you in a bad spot. No now no i mean that was definitely one of the most epic fireworks super jammed shows we ever did you know there was also some of them have to take more or less active role but squillacote had done the whole thing with the doors and it was really cool and i was aware of that but with that show you know we kind of started off the process i basically basically he had done this cool thing with the doors and it was like this really sort of groundbreaking collaboration with him in them and but i had this sort of concept for scroll ix of what the super jammed with him could be and i actually like went with his agent to a show to talk with him about in person and the thought that i brought ought to him. Was you know here's an artist whose fans are scroll ix fans but when you think about what's critics is music is it's sort of all these varied flavors flavors and influences and he's a musicologist and it's in his own way and it's just his own sort of prism that has all these different legendary epic artists styles mashed in together in a really thoughtful creative holy scripts way yes scroll. Ix has a background that maybe most people that are familiar with his music aren't aware of because he has at scream. Oh band that he was a part of i've seen him play. The bass at show is before. He's he's a true musicians critics. He's the kind of guy i and i saw this in rehearsals. He can pick up an instrument and just play it. He's not really known for being this like instrumentalists but he is just music embodied in him. How the music manifest itself you know. He's this guy who uses technology just unlock the deep troves creativity but with that show i i went to him and i said you know. These are the kind of influences that i hear in your music. I hear classic rock. I hear punk reggae. I hear hip hop. I hear soul. I hear arm be hear all these other things too. I wanna do a live show that puts scroll ix with alive incredible virtuoso band and we take the audience through a spin exploring flooring each sphere in each corner of your influence and i think i asked him what were some of his earliest formative musical memories and i think he said that one of the first things he remembered his dad playing for him was the doors and i thought that was just such a cool thing and this was after the campaign happened but after hearing that are you know now out we kind of had a basic concept together and he had a lot to add to that concept too and with myself and his manager we ended up reaching out to robby krieger team and robbie was the original while robbie is the lead guitar player from the doors he wrote break on through to the other side and he's a legendary artist and somehow we were able to get him to come in to bonnaroo on aroo from l._a. And do a show scroll ix like midnight on saturday night of the festival and this was one of those shows where you know maybe we had like two hour our slotted out and i think the show ended up being like three and a half hours or something crazy like that and late night just in the tent under the stars upon ru and robby krieger came out now and who else came out well robbie came out and was doing doors songs with the singer of cage the elephant matt schulz that was a really special part of the show it's wild and there's actually video of it directed and produced by mike good friend danny clinch legendary music director photographer in there's an episode you can find it on youtube. We also had damian you mean marlee and as part of my research process for the show i found out that krieger from the doors dens more the drummer had a project jack in the eighties that was like a bob marley tribute and they'd released an ep and vinyl and so came up with the idea and i pitched it's a sunny and then we eventually pitched robby krieger felix about having krieger join in for some bob marley songs with damian marley son. He's really close with damian marley so we were able to get damian marley to come and be a part of this too and you know talk about one of the major current genre blending artists and he's a visionary artist in so we have like that whole vibe sort of like doing bob marley songs krieger on guitar but scroll ix reimagined the drum patterns and all this stuff thunder cat was on base and big gigantic taken background vocals social so really cool thing and then we also had miss lauren hill we had a we had craig robinson was sort of like host the show and i think he fronted bill withers song and sang the hook on some hip hop. It was really really cool thing and there were so many other artists to on that shows that was a part of that one or paint came out and did did an incredible version of pump up the jam. I love warpaint me too. I think they're fantastic. It went pump up the jam into bowie's. Let's dance to and they did a war paint melancholy version of those two songs that was but with it was like meets phillix meets these songs and they were just so unbelievable in the lead singer. Emily just crushed these songs and they were just really really cool. So that's super jam happens and your career shortly thereafter sorta evolves <music> at what point do you link up with steve the other co founder of okeechobee and you start mapping out this original concept which is you've worked on some established festivals outside lands. I don't know how early in the sages you you had something to do with <hes> festival sort of found its foothold in the industry but this is the first time so you start mapping out an original concept for a first year festival which has a whole new set of hiccups and challenges and hurdles and political political red tape so when you start coming up with this idea when you link up with steve we were creating vision for what okeechobee would ultimately evolve aww into kind of around that time when i was doing that project upon ruth's critics and i think it was a few months later that i did my lascaux at superfly which was during outside aside. Lands was a late night super jam with cooling the gang and big special guests and we had m._c. Hammer come out. I think craig robinson came in for that one too because i had a good relationship with craig influent from l. a. other really cool special guests on that show and i think that was really the last show that i did with superfly the next year i was full force upon ruined that was two thousand fourteen and then two thousand sixteen was the first okeechobee and okeechobee was just always intended like bonnaroo before it in certainly like miami beach pop is now just to would be different. We wanted to do something that like was its own new template. You know it wasn't a copy and paste of something that currently existed we wanted it's own vibe its own character its own artists mix in its own experience for this community and i really always believed in florida as a market and steve actually had connected with the okeechobee site and he approached me and he was like the first thing i told steve was look. I'm really happy at superfly of all the creative latitude in the world. I'm doing incredible stuff every day with bonnaroo and all the other projects jax. I'm not interested unless the site is amazing. He said it was the best site he's ever seen and he really encouraged me to come. See it crocodiles. We're on the side of that time uh-huh. There's always a lot. I mean that thing is just like there's it's gator country. Yeah i mean for those of you. That aren't familiar with the festival grounds at okeechobee. They created a wonderland at of as paul said gator country. There's all sorts of foliage. It looks like a jungle and in certain parts of ohio there's that much greenery and foliage and swamp plans you go to run into a lot of wildlife so what's like clearing out. What was the square mileage on the entire property about eight hundred acres a really big property but it was beautifully manicured and i mean it's like yeah. It's like florida's like a little bit of a tropical like natural paradise for things to just grow exist and thrive and so it's the kind outta space that if if the lands weren't managed in manicured it would turn into jungle like six months but totally on that site. I've seen gators. There's bob cats snakes certain kind of hog that like wars wars yeah rooting things up owls. Everything's fortunately when you come into into music festival and start playing music things just clear out yeah. Animals are like adding buy a ticket and i'm not down with this whole crazy dancing thing animals leave when the concert starts parts. They don't want to be around people. They don't want to be around bass heavy music but that was a little bit later second round for base nectar. The gators gone for base neck. I would imagine though they'd race of the rail and try to be the first ones. They're totally probably be successful because it does turn it right. I don't know ma'am base. Nectar fans are probably the only creature more aggressive than a florida gator. They got a taste for good stuff off and they're going for it. You know now that we're doing miami beach pop we have our own you know like bonnaroo was it wasn't anything like bonnaroo before bonnaroo and with miami beach pop. We're trying to do something totally different two different artists mix. It's a different message that we're trying to put out there. It's this idea of like really embracing. The fact that you know right now with technology we have so much access to different music and even different types of technology just like obviously through the flow of information but it kinda comes with its own challenges. You know we all spend so much time looking at the world through screens. It really is easy to forget that we're all a little bit more of the same than we are different different and actually a lot more of the same than we are different. There's the fact that we're all living on planet earth at the same time and somebody told me recently. There's a point zero one chance that any two people would even be alive at the the same time the course of history but we're all here together and we're all physically connected to planet earth and on a human level. We're all drawn to the ocean in this festival is going to take place on the most iconic back east in the world but it's a celebration of connection in miami beach. Is i think a good reference point for a multicultural flavorful city. That's really in the mode of what sort of america the american dream was always meant to be about. It's about this cross section of cultures coming together in the new dynamic that's created by these flavors and it really reminds me of new orleans when i think about my favorite cities in america it's new orleans in its miami in new orleans jazz fest. It is my favorite festival so for that reason that festival could exist anywhere else because you've got a new orleans jazz fest. You got the music and the food and the vibe. We don't have that here in miami. The other cool thing about miami in miami beach is that they have this incredible natural feature this vibrant city and nightlife so the idea of like city in nature in the excitement. That's kind of what this is all about and on the programming side with artists. It's really intended to be a bold lead. Diverse celebration of different flavors people can come and celebrate the things that they knew they love love but also connect with some new flavors and some new artists and some new styles and to me. Those are always my most meaningful moment events when i experienced something that i didn't even know that i liked now. I have a new artist or thing that i loved for the rest of my life for the audience. I want to <hes> just sort of plugging some gaps so after okeechobee year one i attended the first shear boca chubby really nervous about it because it was a camping festival the first time i did a camping festival and i was so blown away by the experience you had the powell and at one point on the stage there was win butler john oates miguel mumford and sons and scroll ix and they were doing rock the casbah and it was the most amazing fezile experience i had ever had so i reached out to you thing on instagram because there was a news that you had left okeechobee after the first thing wow so bummed because i read a lot of interviews in which you were featured in and i know how much you cared about theme and just about the industry and making sure people like me came him away with a once in a lifetime experience and i reached out to paulin instagram we struck up a friendship and paul said hey i'm coming to miami would like to meet up for lunch and paul all came in and i met steve the other <hes> founder of miami beach pop and they started bouncing off this one concept about bringing something on an okeechobee <music> scale on a bonnaroo scale on jazz scale to miami and while you always said you believed in florida as a festival market a lot of people around the industry would say you're crazy because because florida's one of those weird especially miami being such a melting pot there isn't one specific lane that you should geared towards so with miami beach pop you just cast the biggest net possible and you came up with one of the more eclectic fun lineups ever what sort of challenges specific to this city where they're getting this off the ground because it's different than gobi where you just had to come up with a total infrastructure here. This is as you said the most famous beach in america. They've hosted several events down here but there's reidents. There's things like spring break and all sorts of other events that you have to keep in mind and you have to make the residents happy environmentally. They're different hurdles that you have to clear her with miami beach pop because you're actually on the beach and i know the environment is important. You in a lot of the artists are featured on this bill. So what sort of challenges did you encounter and trying to get this off the ground because because it's been reported that there were delays in this festival because you wanted to get it absolutely perfect totally. It's like we're you know we are only interested in doing special work and it takes time to do it and do it right and this is a true partnership with the city. We really needed to take our time to not only identify. The right dates the right plan the write operation unplanned. We have an amazing operations team. Everyone on the production logistics security traffic mitigation site cleanup just an unbelievable evil team and a lot of the people i worked with the bonnaroo a lot of the people i worked with at outside lands but the scenario in miami beach pop is more outside lands than okeechobee troby because outside lands in a big city and it's an iconic location and the logistical scenario has just different when you're in a city and we really needed to come out and get this right. We had a grand vision for what we wanted to do not only creatively and culturally but we wanted to do something that was really meaningful in positive also the city and it took a minute for us to get the full download. You know you come to miami. You know my partner's live here you know so we spent a lot of time here but not necessarily aware aware of some of the logistical things that can really impact city operations and to really get a good understanding and work with the city staff to get a handle on what we need to do and make sure that we're in sync with them so when we're doing this event our actions are coordinated and complementary and we do something. That's really like going to be very much positive for the city knowing that we're gonna go in the first year. <hes> we're going to learn a lot if we're going to get better in year two but we wanna come out and do a great job yeah first year <hes> in by the way the thing that you said about okeechobee with scripts and mumford and sons and miguel and john oates and and win butler from arcade fire miguel onstage together. That's like the mission statement for from my career. I want artists that are like that that just the idea the concept of genre in genre parameter like doesn't even apply doesn't even come into the equation asian. These are all just incredible artists that are exploring very unique common ground with one another in a live environment and the energy of the audience is a part part of it and it's absolutely like once in a lifetime thing. That's never going to happen again and that's like to me kind of what a festival really should be. This group of people will never be together again in this place and as a result of that you know you've got this temporary special one time only community celebration and it's only for that moment. It's just a pure celebration of that moment. I so rewatch those videos and there's going to be opportunities for people to enjoy some these jam sessions at miami beach pop. I'm super excited about the ulcer tribute to bob marley with stephen. Marley and i know there's plenty of surprises along the way we don't wanna reveal that but keep in mind what <hes> you've heard about the bonnaroo super jams and okeechobee paul has certain standard for these so i'm thrilled about that. I think the now rogers soul jam aptly named <hes> is probably going to be my favorite experience of the entire festival and that says a lot because <hes> we got jack white coming to this festival so when we were initially discussing this concept you were looking at different venues. Marlins park was something that was discussed on. I remember telling you like if you're on the beach. That's essentially headliner. That's top line headliner and with that decision. It took the time but i think it it. It was supposed to be that way to have the water to be come. One which is this entire theme of this because you have built a really wacky wacky lineup and i say that in the in the best possible way because it's top line is chance rapper jack johnson daddy yankee kyko. I think this is probably the only city in america were a top line like that could could work because as eclectic took place miami is we have to taste and you can absolutely find daddy yankee fans that are also chancellor rapper fans that are also. I go fans that are also. I don't want his fans. The raconteurs are planning to set. This is the first time the rack and tourists have played miami. I'm super excited about that. Every time paul would ask me about input on the line of like back. We get jack white. I is there any way we can get jack white and the raconteurs worked out. They were like the first act that committed to this. What challenges do you have as a first year festival because i know oh from talking to you all the artists that you were trying to get and there's so many challenges for first year festival in terms of getting commitments from agencies and managers because because they sort of wanna see an established festival because they want to avoid anything that might reflect poorly on the artists you have to prove it to not only the city which is per the terms of the agreement fremont with miami beach but also the industry so to have a lineup like this with heavy hitters like chansa rapper jack johnson which is this is jack johnson's only two thousand nineteen north with american set which is a huge huge draw. He's got passionate. Fans that i'm counting on will will make the trip down here. Can you get into a little bit. The unique challenges the first year festival and what means to people in the industry and how difficult it is to actually book something like this. It's really challenging. It's you know you you gotta prove it. On all sides. Nobody wants to come in and have a negative experience and just like the city is very protective over its beach and its residents and rightfully felice. Oh all of the people behind the artists also wanna make sure that they're artists are going to have a positive luck in these artists have worked their whole career to establish their brand and and each of these markets miami just as much as any other one is important for them and they wanna come in and they wanna have a good look and it's got within the strategy of everything else and it's just like anything and you think about. It's a little bit like risk calculation oh like like paul and like the idea of playing on the beach but it's never happened before what what's it going to be and it's a little bit of like little bit of a leap of faith and like you said it's <hes> you know like the idea of having jack light come in south beach. I mean it's just so special and we're not talking about small talent. I'm talking about got some of the most legendary artists time because you know i'm in a position where we work really hard. I'm not only defining this vision. Well not only on working with the city to create create a vision that was palatable for them that they were excited about but also to define the vision in really drill in and like think about what this event was meant to be about. How's it going to be different. How's it going. It'd be special. How's it going to be meaningful house. Miami beach pop going to have a positive cultural impact and i need to really have transcendent talent that represents the chorus aesthetics and the core morale events. It's meant to be about and to have chance the rapper and jack johnson. These are two of the most socially conscious s. positive artists terms not only their artistry but their activism in their mentality in what they're trying to put out there in the world and then of course we have jack white right we have roots and quest love and nile rodgers and daddy yankee and wanna s in bombay on my stereo and maggie rogers leon bridges and like back. These are some of the most iconic artists out there. I feel like we're like building like a mount rushmore sandcastle with this festival on south beach in so it's it to get this assembly of talent really execute what you wanna do but you know again. There's a little bit of a comfort level based on the track record in they. There's a lot of questions about what the plan was. And how are we going to execute and in like why does make sense because you know maybe if you just see some of these artists together you know in an email it's like i don't know i know why this makes sense but it really does make sense. It's just different and the artists that we have are ones that really bought in realize this could be special and wanted to be a part of it and that's it's the fortunate position we are with miami beach pop twenty nine thousand nine to have this once in a lifetime experience together here on south beach and by the way you mentioned you know cacho twenty sixteen was one of your most special festival music experiences sometimes at first year like the first year bonnaroo. It's you know you don't know what's going to happen. You take take a leap of faith. Get outside your comfort zone. It's a little bit like a super jam in that sense because the entire festival is a super jammed artist taken the initiative and they had the courage ridged step outside of their comfort zone in three style a little bit and after the magic happens you know kobe was such a special experience in the first year because of that and bonnaroo the same thing and you know i always tell people don't miss the first year you know might get better but the first year is going to have its own kind of magic and i think we're off to a really good start with the incredible talent that we have in some of the surprises. We have up our sleeve. Thankfully the music industry and music festivals have started hearing this latin movement. <hes> you know like at the turn of the century that was the latin fusion word started as a country change artists like ricky. Martin and jennifer lopez became more mainstream and he started seeing them on t._r._l. And i think oh you have a second coming of that. Now with brilliant artists like shape alvin who's playing big time slots headlining lollapalooza rosalia played coachella. Who's an artist that we both both really love and admire but i don't think there's been a festival on this scale that is quite taken the dive into latin music as this as and it's it's natural because it's miami beach. I don't wanna call it other festivals for a token latin act but if one of the big festivals now have latin it's usually one or two not this festival this. This festival at daddy yankee bonds studio netting natasha lally. It's got so many tremendous latin music acts a cannot believe one is his is playing this unwanted giveaway who is playing before but it's just going to be a really fun experience for someone like me who grew up in miami surrounded by all this music. I don't really speak spanish fluently. I i know all of these songs grew up hearing want us at all. These parties that i was going to negative is like one of my favorite songs of all time and to be able to go to a festival in which i get to see my favorite musician jack white and i get to dance to daddy yankee <unk>. Who's the father of this whole reggae tone thing that is blown back up and it's great to see daddy yankee. Get the respect that he deserves and now he has arguably the song of the summer with goma. He's headlining this festival. This is so fun so unique and i'm really looking forward to it and i hope the audience not just locally down here. Miami came but <hes> the nation at large miami beach. It's in november are look a lot of parts of this country. The weather starts taking a turn at that time. Come down here experience this once in a lifetime first year festival experience science because i think it's going to be really special and thank you for letting me have a very small part in sort of helping curate <hes> some of the program and with you and just just bouncing ideas off because you really care about miami i love this town i love music and you're gearing it towards people like me but also so for people that haven't necessarily been festival but their kids like chansa rapper and they want us so let's go out and have this wonderful family. Friendly shared experience and i'm looking forward to this. I wish you the best of luck and thank you again for letting me be small part of it. Now what you were definitely part of my inner circle focus group defining what this event was is going to be about and i really appreciate your input and your passion and you know you got to you have to really believe in what you're doing if you wanna do something special and when i find people that like really believing it in our inspired by it they can help be a part of creating what it's going to be in a direct way and all. I'm always looking for that so i i really appreciate it and i'm so proud about what we've put together here and i'm so excited for it and i cannot wait till november got already hitting me up to have <hes> his daughter. Emma onstage during a rapper says so that ask is coming once. I realized that i was working with you guys on this festival. The asked have not stopped and directly from his children. So the <hes> the apples have fallen far from the tree paul. Thank you so much for taking the time by the way isn't that the perfect example of what this event meant to be about parents kids uh-huh grandparents multigenerational. You know like your parents. Favorite artists wants but your favorite artist is white or chance the rapper or daddy yankee so it's like this cross generational thing and you can have this experience which i think all of us kind of want to connect with something special and have that like moment paul your parents. I cannot wait to build out this playlist. Let's because any festival that i go to. I put together the most extensive playlets for this. This is going to be bat shit crazy. I'm in the best possible way. I can't wait to put this out there. I'm gonna put it out therefore the audience and work on this music festivals as a whole when he put together a playlist are very eclectic. The sonic profile for this is just one of the more absurd but when zigal all things. I'm so excited about this and i think you've created something that hopefully will endure down here for many years to come and thank you for believing in this market. Thank you work and people will go find information on this essel. Where can i buy tickets. <hes> everything all the information and all the artists are on miami beach dot com. All the new information is going to be sent out to our mailing list and on our instagram and on our facebook and all of those platforms are linked to from our website miami beach pop dot com as paul peck co-founder miami beach pop cannot wait for november to come around. I will be there and i think so we'll sue gods and his family of <hes> hundreds on your time. He's insisted clearly all right good interview good crate episode today you think so. I think so chris owed yes episode. You didn't even listen to my interview. Yeah i heard it you could assume i heard you did do that part when he was like era and you're like oh. It's a good point. That's not what he can't 'cause. It's a mystery so he can't say what it was. It was just talked about because it's a mystery aired already. This is the altro great interview there it is it took a week off feature in this businessman venue good i do yeah. We hope you enjoy the self indulgent episode of mystery crate. We're gonna try to help out mooch from michigan. I still can't shake that. He said drink he poos. I like that. I thought that was a positive. I thought more highly of him when i heard that calling alcohol drinking poop i mean you kinda. Do menzies isn't meant. She's in the same realm home as drink. I knew that ironically it was a little creepy. I think he got to know mooch and he's like drinking booze. I think he was trying to be funny. Yeah i like all right well. We're going to try to help out mooch. Even though i'm pretty sure it might be a divisive segment dream expert. We're going to bring on a dream expert to help the dude because you're a little worried that maybe maybe we'll bring her on a mystery. Oh we'll <music>. You're worried that this happened to him. In real life yeah it seems pretty vivid and he keeps having this recurring dream. I feel like this is something. I don't know what our connection action to any of this is but it seems like maybe something that actually happened to him having nothing to do with any of us. Maybe it's a a future of the health and container. I was actually thinking matt but i feel like now. This is like a mystery crate thing so we can't have him on the helping container and if we have them on the helping container. We're going to have to hope that everybody heard the mystery crates. I feel like this one may. Maybe you know what maybe it'll be a special mystery crate episode of the helping. It's a mystery. We'll see you never know. That's another segment uh-huh.

It's free so you can download the free anchor APP or go to a dot M. to get started all right they holly. How are you great career? I have been better I was recording. What I thought was a recording with Glenn Szabo but Yes So we're starting all over again all right so we have. Glen Sobel with us. You probably know him as the drummer for Alice. Cooper he also is the drummer for Hollywood Vampires Alice. Joe Perry Johnny Depth Two Thousand Sixteen the best hard rock drummer and drum magazine. If you know chef Gordon you may know. He has a benefit new year show. And He's played with Steven Tyler. Michael McDonald Sarah McLaughlin and weird al. Among many many others I mean what was that. Like being in a in a house band because it's different style. I mean I just mentioned four different artists. That are completely different. It's fun but it's a lot of work. It's both but I do that kind of thing often. Not just at that event but like my residency in Hollywood. It's a club called Lucky Strike. Which is a bowling alley? It's high end. Nice super cool bowling place but it's also a club venue with a great stage and sound system and every month we do a residency GIG and we back up different guests and so it's similar learning songs and it's a fun gig. Hill for example if he backed up there Boy We've had nuno bettencourt from extreme and Steve. Vi and Tom Morello from rage against the machine Or Yanti and we were talking about earlier. We've had a lot of WHO guests? So what's that like though I mean if I mean you have? How much time to rehearse something like that? Usually things like that. It's like a sound check rehearsal. You're rehearsing the day of or the day before. Sometimes if everything is set up at the venue the day before. But you're expected to show up knowing everything and I I read music. Thanks to being in middle school band in high school marching band orchestra etc. All that reading music at all help towards what I do now. So I'm able to chart things out and the structure of the songs and the brakes. Important little transitional parts like in Notat it and and that's that's what you gotta do in situations like that you have to show up and then there's going to be changes get made maybe the the front person the singer wants a different ending and you have to take it on the spot and be ready to to make it happen. When did you start notating? Is this something you picked up when you first start playing in middle school or is it? is learning to read for sure. Ryan with taking lessons starting in while. I was in eighth grade when I started but I started playing drums at seventh grade at middle school hailed. Junior high. Were actually just went back to speak to the middle school students which was great but I. I learned to read which I always tell drummers how important that is you. Don't WanNa be an illiterate drummer. You want to know what it is that you're playing but then much later when was starting to actually play professional. Gigs I would notice that drummers would do this one of my mentors Greg Bissonnette play David Lee Roth in the eighties. And that was his first big thing that really put him on the map but he was playing a lot different. Gigs and I was his student. He's mentor of mine so when I was eighteen. Nineteen studying with him and he showed me and his other students how he would chart out songs. Like shorthand not writing out note for note but sort of charting out the structure a roadmap and eventually somewhere down the road. I started doing that. Because it's like wait a minute you don't have to memorize everything You have it all on a music stand right there and the act of writing it out helps you internalize the song so it just. It made sense to do that. When you're in Maui. Yeah Okay so they Michael McDowell will say we're going to play what usually ahead of time we know what we're GonNa do but there's always a last minute one or two guests that get added but yeah with Michael McDonald. It was great. He usually joins US every year. He lives in Maui along with Pat Simmons from the DOOBIE brothers so we ended up playing some of that stuff like Long train running which is without love. Where would you be right now? People don't know the title of it as much but that one and what a fool believes and rock down the highway and then we did one of Michael Solar to keep I keep forgetting which is big in and I just WANNA show up with. Everything chartered out. And if there's changes you make changes you bring your pens and pencils and erasers. It's it's very nerdy but it's very necessary to be that kind of professional. Have you ever been thrown for a loop as far as what somebody is thrown? Asong in and you weren't totally familiar with it. If they're gonNA throw something in the last minute I would hope would be something that we could get up to speed on quickly but yeah. It's not unlike someone like Steven Tyler to throw something in last minute. Although he was not there for this event this last New Year's but the last minute guests that we found out day of was Paul Simon. He's showing up at some of the parties in Maui around that time but we got word day of that. He is coming to the thing that he wants to get up and do at least one song so it was a song called diamonds on the soles of her shoes. Which sounds like it was from the same record as you can call me. Al at Graceland Graceland. Yeah I figured it was. It's that same kind of Style and production and so we just ran it at soundcheck after listening to it. I made the quick cheat sheets. It's not a heavy arrangement but still we wanted to get it right. We had a percussionist. My Buddy Andres Ferraro. Who's the drummer in Hamilton on Broadway? So he's a great drummer percussion. He handled the Congress and everything and it was great. We played down the song and we had Willie Nelson Son Lukas Nelson. Who's doing great as a solo artist? Myself Right Neil Young. Yeah and he's one of the CO writers of many of the songs in a star is born so he's a great music director and we were there to play it with him and Paul Simon and Willie joined us. He wanted to do full band. That was another last minute thing. I was just going to be Willie. And his son Acoustically and then we got word day before a really wants to do full band so it was Mama's delight your babies grow up to be cowboys on the road again and good hearted woman and had to go on YouTube that night the night before make cheat sheets but then they say yeah. But you can't rely on that Willie you just gotTa Kinda listen to them for when the changes happened. I thought well I at least want to know what it was originally. And then if there's a left to right turn takes. I can at least know how to transition. And it was exactly what they said. It's like listen. Watch listen to him. You can't just chart it out. That's being the driver in one of those bands hosting and playing with all these guests. You got to be ready for real time changes. That happened on the fly. Keeps you on your toes. Totally pretty confident. Yeah yeah that's that's amazing. Do you have these moments where you have to step back and go? I mean these are people that you probably grew up listening to a number of these people. Do you take second go. Okay I gotta learn sweet emotion and Stevens going to be seeing this. Let me let me just figure this and let me just have my moment and then I'll get then it'll be professional cap it. At first way back I mean this is this is the tenth year. I'm going into playing with Alice and doing these types of events but back in twenty eleven the first year I was doing it. Yeah sure we did a special GIG at the whisky Special Alice Cooper Gig. They put out some tickets on sale. But it's mostly an industry industry thing and robby. Krieger was GONNA join US. For a couple of doors. It's like wait a minute. You mean robby. Krieger played doors songs with us at the Whisky. Where the doors guarded. That's crazy and then he walked into rehearsals. Like Oh my God there is Robbie but now it's kind of become very routine. People are musicians. I I mean they're icon sure but they make music and they make mistakes like anybody else does. And they're just they're normal like everyone else and you gotta treat it that way but sure they other part of you might think this is nuts. Well look what's going on right now but you gotta be professional right any audiences forgiving too. I mean if you're not note for note I guess you just well. It's not about not always you want to go for that. But any little mistakes that may happen audiences and get a notice in part of being professional is covering it up. Get like sideway glances from from Leaders who like I caught that I saw over gets blamed for everything. Even if something goes wrong it has nothing to do with us. Everyone looks back at the drummer with this. Look on their face like save us. Get this in you do your best. Yeah I mean it happens. It's going to be mistakes and things that happen on stage but one of the biggest aspects of being professional is being able to recover from that mistake and usually it's way worse in the moment you feel this onstage. Everything gets all slow motion of. It's a bad train wreck moment but if you happen to see a video of it later usually the reaction has on. That wasn't so bad. Yeah most people don't notice I mean I've seen bands have horrible train wreck mistakes on stage and still most of the audience didn't know or the person X. going what what happened saying they. Just Oh my God. They totally half went into the chorus. The other half kept going and most people aren't paying that close attention on cursed. Okay did you learn this way back in high school? I mean when you know just to keep going because I know you have to learn. It's all written out but there's always you're always going to mess up especially in high school. I think you've gotTa make mistakes. You learn from it but I was in drumline. You're in drumline. Dat is so precise. And you've got any number. Snared numbers could be three five seven snare drummers if one guy makes a mistake or sloppy the whole thing is sloppy. And it's so obvious. Oh I think being in high school marching band and orchestra it really taught me that super hyper focus that carried onto later life and when you're the only drummer there's some things that are easier about that. You're not playing with other drummers in a drumline it's you and you have to establish the groove and the Tempo and the count offs and you just learn little tricks like using a metronome to start songs. Maybe not keep it on the whole song. But I've got a little INEAR like an earbud. I put my right ear only and I use my pad in the metronome APP and I can at least start. Asong with that. That guarantees that I'm on the right temple because there's nothing worse than counting. Get off the singer. Looks back too to slow and it just it blows the by singers. Count it off. And then they'll go too fast. It's like well you count it off but it's still. Your fault is the Drummer. You just get that feeling audience. Actually audiences are always the worst. Whenever you get the audience to clap. They always starts being out. It's always you gotta really more than others. They speed up really countries throwing the country under the bus Japan. They get kind of fast different kinds of appreciation or excited. Exactly when you got to do your own thing You won this. Look on your wikipedia page. You won this competition at Nineteen nineteen twenty. Was it okay? So you create your own drum solo or what what. What was this about? I mean what was happening here at the Guitar Center drum off which became huge. They don't do it anymore. I think they stopped it two or three years ago but it became this like major event where kids their goal in life was just to win that it wasn't. I want to be a professional drummer and make music with people it was. I want to win the Guitar Center drum off. I mean it was important back then but they weren't like giving away cars yet or anything they were eventually but yeah. It was the Guitar Center Drama Finals and it was the second year I had done it. And I remember thinking if I don't win this year I don't care I'm never doing this again. Because it's the most high pressure gig situation play a drum solo. I like it's not like you're playing set of songs and in the middle there's a drum solo and you're nice and warm up on your drums. This is this other drum kit. You have five minutes to adjust it however you want to stand in the heights of symbols and whatever and you have to perform this composition in a way where it's got beginning middle and end and you got judges and the judges are celebrity judge. There was like Eric Singer. That's right I had met him in. There is There was Peter Chris and there was pat torpey who became a good friend and a lot of other guys. Chad. I think was a judge at one of those and it's like wow this is just heavy. Do I want to do this but yeah I? I'm glad that I did the second year I did it. I won the thing and it led to my first endorsement As far as a drumstick company goes but it doesn't get you a GIG. I always say what I'm teaching that. Nobody ever got a Gig from playing a drum solo be a prestige thing and and something for your resume sure prestige attached to it. Yeah and I got to know people in the drum industry and it was good for a lot of things like that but I knew that it wasn't going to be something that would convince people. Oh this is the guy we need for our band because he could play crazy thing but double bass and poly-rhythms and that doesn't get you a GIG that that turns people off in fact sometimes so. Is that what you were trying to for your first solo where you're trying to do it all like oh. I can play these try and mix it up or what was. I wasn't trying to show off a whole lot of diverse playing. You have a style. You realize that you start doing certain things that are typical of you as a player I just. I saw what the categories were because there's like quarterfinals semifinals. For something like that and you hear what the categories are there like timing showmanship groove originality. I thought Oh originality that's important one because then I judged it at different times years after I had won. And Yeah those categories. You GotTa think about that when you construct this drum solo. That's got a limit of four or five minutes and you gotta practice it. The worst thing that could happen is you're just getting warmed up. And Time's up can fly by so it was a high pressure gig for Sir. So how soon after that after you win? That was your first professional Gig I'd say just a couple of years. Maybe maybe a year. Yeah this about a year later. I was recommended by mentor. Greg Bissonnette as a student like saying he recommended. Tony macalpine. Big Time shredder. His first record was around. Eighty four and is. I think it's credited. As being one of the first true metal fusion records heavy metal jazz fusion kind of put together the dumber on that was Steve Smith from Germany. Who was a very accomplished jazz fusion drummer and I became a huge fan of his. I mean I was listening to journey before I was a drummer. Everybody loves journey but him as jazz player it was a very big influence on me so he was on that record. I knew the record. Greg called me said. I gave your number and name to Tony. Mcalpine's managed you know that is I said Yeah. I have that I record. Man Is Steve Smith and Billy Sheehan on Bass and Greg civil start learning the tunes get on it and I got the GIG and I was so happy to be able to tell that to greg later that yeah I get you recommend before I got it and doing record so that was my first real thing. That's insane right. It's still one of my favorite records I've ever done. The mix was good and it was a very musician. Type Record. The does like that kind of thing and so it's just. The problem was by this time. It was the nineties in. That shred thing was dying off grunge. Just erase the slate with not just a hair metal but shred guitar. So how you enjoying yourself you having a good time with Glenn. I'm so psyched growth. Great G-gree-greece a break and we'll be right back. Today's what difference does it make?

He narrates this. Are you an audible subscriber? I'm not but I think it's pretty easy right. What do I need to do you need to go to audible? Dot Com slash. Wd Dam podcast. Okay welcome back. Let's get back to Glenn. What was your first band or what was there. I mean you must have especially high school I was like I Gotta. I got to play with the band. I gotTA play guys okay. I was in a band with my best friends. And they're still my best friends to this day. It was called Bourbon Street and we'd played parties from the West San Fernando Valley called Yourself Bourbon Street. Yeah because I don't even remember why I think they got named before joining. But I'm technically the original America's I'm on the first demo recording whatever. That's that's how you count original members. Who's on the first record? There could be fifteen people before it right but yeah Bourbon Street and we play back. Your party's originals and covers and that was my first experience playing clubs on the sunset strip. That was where we played for the first time that Bill. The Godfather Rock and roll there. Were those commercials on the Radio Stations. Back in the day and it was like a Sunday night. No one was there hardly but we were excited to play a club on the sunset. Strip your this was. Yeah that was eight okay. So Yeah Yeah your metal. It was eight and some ban backed out. And somehow we got added in there. The first time I played on a miked up set of drums. That's a big moment for a drummer. it was soundcheck and the Bass Drum snare. Toms and the overhead Mike. And and that's like a very unbelievably godly feeling. Because if you just play in a living room and rehearse with all this carpet and guitars blasting the two guitars are in a volume war with each other as a drummer. You gotTa keep playing harder and harder. That's a good thing you learn to really rock drum set and not be wimpy player but then playing with miked up. It's like Oh my God There's nothing better than this right now. Yeah that's that's what I thought. Oh Yeah I gotTa do this a lot more visit. Did you go see bands on the strips or I shows that you remember. Well we used to go see the band and remember we were under twenty one so we couldn't get into a lot of places but there were places that we're all ages or they were eighteen and up we go to the country club lot received received. It wasn't Hollywood. But many of the Hollywood bands would play there It was the San Fernando Valley's rock club and it made sense to open a club there. They had a lot of people showing up. Sold out shows. We used to see shark island a lot. Which a lot of people may not know that they did get a record deal on. Elektra could be wrong and they. They did put out a record. They had a single got some airplay. But this was richards's Ernie or Richard Black Richard Zare. This was the singer and this is the guy that a lot of people. If they know shark island they go. Oh yeah that's the guy. Axl Rose stole some of his stage moves from because he we saw him during the snake. Dance way before guns. Roses came out and he was doing that but the cool thing was years later in. Oh five in a roundabout way. I ended up talking to Richard the singer on the phone and I ended up doing shark islands reunion record in. Oh five and for some reason. The drummer they had he was not interested or not into doing it but was the other three original guys and so for me and my best buddies in my band. This was like a special thing. I couldn't wait to tell them. I guess on a record with Shark Island and and it was a. It was a fun experience so we used to see them. We used to see Racer X for them. Do you yeah. That was a ban that had a lot of players. Go on to do some evening things. But they had a big following the musician crowd it was shredding guitars but with the singer. Jeff Morton and Paul Gilbert was on guitar and the other guitars was Bruce Boulay and those are actually two guys that I've ended up playing with in later years. Paul has a instructional. Dvd with some live band segments. And I'm playing on that with him and that was a last minute call so get it was me. Call my buddies. So I'm doing some. There was a lot of moments like that of me calling my old buddies from high school. Saying guess who? I'm doing a record show with these guys that we used to listen to an idolize a of that. That's like one of the funnest. Parts of of the professional side is playing with people. You grew up listening to but Paul Gilbert Racer x Bruce Bocce. I did Bruce's last. Instrumental record from came out in two thousand. Fourteen and Scott Travis. Was the drummer huge influence. A mine went on to Join Judas. Priest in one thousand nine hundred ninety and he's become a good buddy and it's just so cool that him and I sat down with a couple of drum sets day few years ago for like three hours and I was telling him like. Oh you don't understand. You're such a huge influence. And and he was this guy who's like self taught and he was asking me how to do some things and it was kind of surreal but cool. He's become a good buddy and he's such an innovator in in Metal Double Bass Plan and then the bass player from racer x went on to play in Mars Volta. So it's fan. Had A lot of people that went on to do stuff we used to see them and oh man bang. Bang Tango I ban with the singer years later. Beautiful creatures with Joe. Stay the singer we were on Warner brothers and Whilst we kissed it a special show there are member for pirate radio. We had win tickets and that was the place that was a great great club. Now I think it's a Korean church or something like that or it's a Hispanic church. Yeah passed by a lot remember. Youtube played there before they broke and played at the sports arena. Every everybody there at one time or another the started there all right so as you mentioned double Bass. I heard a story. I don't know if this is true. I've seen you play hot for teacher and before the you. You thought that Alex was actually doing like double bass work with just two pedals. Right there was it. I never tried to figure out definitively what that was. I just I heard and thought it was cool and it was kind of obvious that it's multi tracked and a lot of people argue over. What that is. I mean. It doesn't matter everyone's GonNa play it and do it their own way but I think what he was doing was simmons drums involved and then floor. Tom and maybe some bass drums. Some people thought. No No. No. It's a motorcycle engine man. And then there's drums and who knows. I don't know Alex I've never met the guy but he's another huge influence and it's a fun song play but so you learned it but just using your your feet. Yeah right without any without any motorcycle or or Simmons Drum hard to take a motorcycle to the GIG. Robbie Alfred. Yeah it's a roommate called Herta. We didn't have a name for that route. Back then that now. There's a name for that rudiments. H. E. TA and that's what's going on and there was a video. There is a video of me online on Youtube from playing that song at a Drum Festival in twenty ten I had the little flip camp set up behind me. And it made the rounds. It got around a lot and it's been brought up. Just like your. Nobody's great. It circulated and apparently Alex seen it and It's great that that kind of thing happens. That's very cool. Go ahead can ask you about Motley. Crue I don't know well well. Dave told me off Mike that you had had a filled in a lot of is just being at the right place. You seem to Philly like someone you know. Drummer goes down. There's Glen Sobel steps right up to the plate. I'm not sabotaging anybody exactly by being at the right place is Cooper. You tell me well that was exactly what you're saying it was. It was being there at the time. We were doing motley. Crews this is funny now. Their farewell tour. Yeah they're all done no more. We will never hear from Mali crew again. Except now they're back and no but this was what was their Farewell Tour Twenty fifteen. We were on tour with them as the special guest. That's a little more than an ex special guests. We did about an hour. Long set had full production. And we did that for a good while on and off with the guys and I had already known Nikki six from way back in. Oh seven I did the very first six. Am Gig because that was a guitar player. Joschka who I used to play with. It's all about people calling you because they know that you're reliable. So in this case Tommy Lee had a sudden flare-up of tendinitis we were in Buffalo New York and I got a call in my hotel room from crews production manager. I I met this guy years ago. He was Guitar Tech that was like known. This guy was one of the best in the business so it was no surprise that he became a big production manager for Motley crue and kiss he calls me and says Tommy Lee has got a problem and he can't play it showed at. Can you fill in and the first thing I said was come on? Who's best with me? Thought yeah if I if I say. I'm down the Stewart. I thought I was going to hear a bunch of people in the background. Laugh ago I mean I really thought that's what was happening. And he assured me it was for real. I still wasn't one hundred percent convinced what I was on the way to the venue but I said okay have someone get a music stand with a light attached to it because it's a very dark stage and have Adam that was their sound guy said Have Adam make Put a recording of one of the recent shows on thumb drive so I could sit in a production office at the venue and chart out the show like I was talking about earlier making cheat sheet roadmaps. Reading music comes in handy people. Say Oh but it's Motley crue. You grew up on that. Yeah but when there's bombs going off literally right next to the drums and nicky six has a flame thrower base on shout at the devil. And Vince sometimes doesn't sing every word. And there's fifteen thousand people you might get a little distracted but I made cheat sheets of everything whether I thought I knew it or not. And there's different agents when they were doing that tour to accommodate different pyro cues like on primal scream. There was an extra two bars of rest before the final course just a giant explosion that you know if you don't have the inner monitors it would deafen you. I mean we had pyro but they made our pyro looks like firecrackers so. I did that on seven hours. Notice and sure it was crazy because it's like what. What did I get myself into? But I had done things like this in the past there was Italy's Big Rockstar Vasco Rossi who I had heard of always but I got called a sub that Gig last minute and this was in twenty ten and he is. He's always had American drummers. That's why I'd heard of him. He's had Kenny aronoff. Jonathan Moffet from Michael Jackson's band. A friend of Mine Matt Log. Great Drummer played on a lot of hit records that you heard he was doing the Gig but he had an injury in two thousand ten so I got called last minute because the producer that called me new I read music and could chart things that was about planned drum solos like as saying earlier that that wasn't GonNa do it like a drum solo. It was the skill set of reading music and adapting so I had done that way back and learned a twenty five Song set of songs Sung in Italian and then days later. I'm in Sardinia. Cagliari Sardinia on the island rehearsing with people. I never met before one American in the band. Guitar player Stef Burns and but it it came off like I was the the wild card. They didn't know who to call everyone else. They'd had done the GIG. Previously was not available. And that's who they call I so they called me and everyone was really nervous and I walked in that room had it chartered out and it was. It was fine and I was nervous. Of course the first show is forty thousand people without at your biggest audience. At the time I think at the time. Yeah Yeah but I pulled it off. And that's a good confidence booster so when the Motley crue came up it's like well. I have done this before. This is Motley crue. I do know the songs from growing up hearing them being a fan. And then we've been on tour with them on and off for a while so even being backstage hearing the show in the background through the the walls certain things like pyro cues they kind of sink. In by Osmosis you know So that helped prepare for that gig but it was such a whirlwind day. There was no time to really freak out or be nervous. I played the Alice set. And then a half hour later was the beginning of the Motley crue set and everything with what they do is on the inner monitors and everyone gets the metronome or the click track now. Everybody knows what that is but a lot of rock shows. When there's there's lighting that's automated and sync up to what the band is playing. Its all time coated and so the band or at least. The drummer has to play this metronome. So it's all perfectly aligned. In this case with Motley crue musicians might find it interesting. The whole ban would get the click track and the count offs and the reason. I was able to figure that out way before is because they would just start a song without Tommy Lee County. It in were getting it in their news. The audience doesn't hear it and I'd say okay. They're all getting the count off and nobody told me this before. I got up to play. I didn't rehearse with them. I didn't sound check with them. It was just do the show but it helped metronome there because then the tempo is right on his long as you play with it. And this is the thing for drummers practice to the metronome every day it's part of professional life but yeah and I had to guess certain things like well. Is this a one bar count for two Bar Council? If it's one that I better be ready to go. Quick like on anarchy in the U K. That's their sex pistols cover. I thought I'll bet this is a one bar. Count off and guest right. Nobody was helping me. I thought what these guys are so nonchalant about this whole thing. I don't think anybody thought about it. Don't but I mean because it's I mean in the past it's always been Tommy. Tommy John were. Why would they need discuss before for Tommy have they? Oh yeah okay. And it's been a while but no one pack. Who has someone they would always call other people? One of the subs was a good buddy of mine will hunt. Who's the Drummer Evanescence But he had played and Tommy Lee Solo band way back. And he's done a lot of other cool gigs. He's been in evanescence a good. He played in Vince. Neil's solo band. So he played Motley crue songs a lot. He got called to do it years ago when Tommy messed his hand up somehow and Called will I said okay. What they pay but No they've had other guys rose from seven dust For while the Ninety Samantha Maloney was actually touring with them the dome from from whole. Yeah so they just assume drummer drummers. Just know it intuitively right. That's know everyone. Yeah everyone well. Drummers always get short shrift well you just said you gotta be like say just professional and be prepared and it went really well that I i. There were no train wrecks and I did. Five shows a week's worth and you actually do go in his the roller coaster. Everybody asks that I wrote it during the daytime. I wasn't going to do that during the show. That would have been a weird thing to sub genres riding the roller coaster. Because that's Tommy Lee's personnel. And he's so much more than a drummer means. He's an important part the sound of that band. I don't think people realize are giving enough credit. All of his tabloid antics overshadowed his musicianship. But he's a very important part of their overall sound and when he would do his drum solo he's got the headset mic on and and he's talking a little view. What's up you know? He's doing that whole thing. And what would I do if I you know? What'S UP Tommy? No no people were disappointed that they didn't get the full lineup. It what they thought was there last time seeing the ban but I did ride it during the daytime. I had subbed a couple few shows and I was talking to Tommy. I said you know Tommy just go. I got one question Kennedy. Get a ride on the coaster. He says Oh man you gotta try it and so one day we arrange get me down to the venue early and it's hard it's very hard. The hardest part is not being totally upside down. That's weird enough because everything feels far away from you for some reason. No when you turn and you're at a forty five degree angle. The harness digs into your stomach at it knocks the wind out of you. You can't breathe but you still gotta be playing and so I got to give it up to him doing that every night and I know I realize afterwards why they put Mick Mars Guitar Solo right after the drums. So because is backstage with oxygen tank. Which I eventually started using onto a lot of drummers and singers do this oxygen tanks helpful actually get a quick hit a fresh. Oh Two special PYRO. This could be smoked. Lingering in the air which. We've done a lot with alice so as I got. I got to renew my doctor's prescription for the Oxygen Benita prescription. And we're having so much fun with Glenn but we're going to have to stop it right here and we will return next week so until then. This is Dave Holloway. Check you later overnight.

down can both companies survive this is episode five back from the break august nineteen eighty five four months so bill scholtz in his cheek guitar designer dan smith had been searching for some place to put vendors new factory and today it looks like they might have found it the building is empty warehouse in a nondescript industrial park in the city of corona about fifty miles east of los

dimensions the to work together for nearly ten years burst at yamaha's musical instruments division bennett fender under cbs shields called out to the guitar designer from across the warehouse what do you think dan then you'd make this work it'll be a tight squeeze but yeah this could work and it's close enough to they all factory the most of our staff won't mind the commute i say we take it great right i'll make offer it'll be good to start making guitars again by october the new factories up and running production is extremely limited at first only about ten guitars a day but it's a start gibson and he's retooling to in nineteen eighty four the company closes its factory in kalamazoo which had been in continuous operation for sixty seven years it moves it's guitar production to a newer cheaper facility in nashville but it's not enough in nineteen eighty five gibson reports losses of twelve point six million be equivalent of thirty million in today's dollars gibson's parent company

it's official wise we're now the proud owner of the gibson guitar company rock on henry but another partner looks adjusts to it's like a deer in the headlights no or the hell do we do now we go to nashville and convince them were not a case of meet the new boss same ezio boss just go which can pretty much count on people in nashville being suspicious of three harbored interlopers trying to

Nate Wilcox Shelley and I were on. Nate's show here to talk about Well Celli tell us what we talked about. We talked about this book. I have here in front of me which I'm going to dive into much deeper today. That's right it's called. No one here gets out alive which I always want to say. No one gets out of here alive so I have a problem with the title already. Anyway you don't like the poetic license of Doan here here gets out alive lows much better. It's the biography of Jim. Morrison the doors as told by his young plucky. Assistant Danny sugarman. Yes and a rolling stone writer Jerry Hopkins who brought the credibility in the bud. Typing chops his typist. No I don't think he'd appreciate that. I know But you know what I mean. So yeah him in Danny together Dan. Danny's a firsthand experiences of Working from the doors from a very young age And seeing all of the rock and roll mayhem In disturbances in just plain wacky doodle craziness that occurred with. Mr Morrison in his Short twenty-seven years on this planet Yeah and when you say young than and people know that day at Twelve Oh us twelve twelve when he started working for them opening fan mail. Yeah I wish I could get that job and I don't think I would have been a safe job for me anyway. Yeah so you know. It's certainly an interestingly written book I would say yeah And we will dive into it but let's Let's give everybody a flavor of Mr Morrison and of course You know The band the doors At consisting of robby. Krieger Guitar John. Dinsmore on drums. And the man who needs no introduction the backbone of the the act of Raymond Ceric yes. That's how you say his name by the way man's Rick Manzarek. Yeah okay. Yeah or man's Eric. I guess some people but I always I. I was always taught. It was man's Eric. I'd like to hear him. Say it though. Well that's not gonNA happen. 'cause he's dead. Yeah I'm sure I could find something on Youtube pure young. Well what what is it that to me? That's always the test is how do you of course go right? So let's get into it and start with a song. Just one's pretty well known it may not be their most famous and we'll get to those in a bit but it definitely Puts them on the map from the first album. Led US here little love back door man by the doors We're back a well if rock and roll is in its essence opposed to be primal and emotional. Think you're getting that from the opening notes. That song and the lyrics to kind of I mean yeah. Wasn't there some talk about what the lyrics mean. Exactly I mean in blues would mean a back door. Mail me about the guy who comes to the back door when the husband is gone you know that is the sexual kind of us. Yeah Anal Sex. Yes that Two is You know part of the charm of that saw back charming charming. Yeah Librarian Right. So but yeah yeah you can interpret it Either way but yes Originally you know an old blues tune being that It is that when the when the husband's away the player comes in the back door. Yeah Yeah Yeah. Yeah all right. So let's start at the beginning. Yeah I think a lot of people probably now that Jim was born into a military family. His father was a career naval officer and his mother was the perfect military wife And they moved around a lot of course because that's what Military brats you know that your life. He had a younger brother and sister. He had an early show of resentment toward authority. I think his character was pretty well from the beginning. You know that he had some issues that maybe these days we might have sent him to family therapy about. But that's not what happened. And when I read about how he treated his younger brother. And and you know that he was like at one point loving and And fine and on the other end of the spectrum kind of a torturer and teaser and played pranks on his brother and kind of you know terrified him. I suppose. That's what a lot of older brothers do but So what sounds a little bipolar to me? Yeah and I think that's a theme that goes through. This book is like yes he was a. you know. We'll get into that more but he was. You know a risk taker and You know love danger and he took a lot of drugs and he was an alcoholic but on the other hand he could be kind and gentle and loving and generous. And all that so well you could also You know with a bottle Jack. Walk Half Naked Down Hollywood Boulevard Yellen the N. Word so luckily after and he continued that way throughout school. He was a big tease he. He subjected his friends and girlfriends to sometimes bitter and cruel jokes stunts but he was still popular people gravitated towards him and he was very smart and very well read. He read a lot of poetry and I think that's also well known that he was extremely intelligent and he also liked what they called in that day race records and Blues and spirituals and beat Knicks. Jack Works On the road one of his favorite books touchdown yeah and he lived in the bay area for the San Francisco Bay area for a little while when his family moved here and Probably Alameda? Yeah and came into the city and frequented city lights bookshop and you know loved all that kind of stuff and then he attended junior college in Florida for a little while when his his family lived there and One thing that I find interesting about his classes that he took in college he took a class on collective behavior which was included the psychology of crowds which later helped him in his performing so he was in talking to classmates at that time he said I can look at a crowd. We can cure it. We can make love to it. We can make it riot so as early as you know eight age eighteen. He was already thinking about that. Kind of thing You know how to control people in an audience basically and then the kind of big deal started when he got into film school at Ucla. Sixty Four. That's where he meets. Ray Yes he meets Ray. There Ray is also a film student and it was during what they call now. Call the Golden Age so there were top directors. You know this is Los Angeles. This is like Hollywood nearby and they have one of the students was Francis. Ford Coppola for example. Yeah experimentalism was just starting to come to Hollywood You know the French and Italians have been doing it for a decade before that. But I know Jim especially was interested in in the experimental type of filmmaking and to your point some of these Ah Tours that you know have become household names like Francis Ford Coppola George. Lucas obviously From UC UC and several others. That were in had click. You know all were coming of age At the same time. Yeah though apparently he was even more experimental than other people you know in his class and that were around that time because for his His final or his project. He had a film a film that was questioning the film process itself. A film about a film. A montage of abstract and loosely connected events and he was given a complimentary de apparently. It wasn't really appreciated by the teachers and he was hurt by the rejection and almost didn't graduate. He left school right before graduation but what's talked back into graduating by a teacher. You know who said no you come on your this close finish it. Yeah you got two more weeks. Let's but he never. He never went back to get his diploma. Yeah and Yeah when he met Ray Ramos actor was the last known actual address Jim Ever had was There on the dorms of UCLA in Westwood must. Yeah so he meets. He meets Ray at that time and ray was in a band already called Rick and the Ravens in Santa Monica and his band had been hired to backup sunny and share at a high school. Graduation dance dry thought was very funny. And one of the members quit suddenly an in the contract. It said that they had to have six people on stage. So gyms first time on stage. I guess he said Jim. You gotta be in our band. Be THERE AT SIX THIRTY. We just need a body. Yeah and he said but I don't play anything ray and race it. That's okay all you have to stand there and hold an electric guitar. We won't even plug it in some of us. Wish we could do our debut you get paid in Hollywood guy Fake it till you make it right. That wasn't like really the beginning of their musical career together. Now came apart famously Hooked up again one day In advertently in the beaches of Venice ran which was where Jim moved to after after he got out of school. And did I think you know a lot of couch surfing? But he began to write when he was in Venice he created in a burst of enlightenment more material in less time than he ever would again and Jim says those first five or six songs I wrote. I was just taking notes about a fantastic rock concert that was going on inside my head. I love that idea. You when you hear how people write songs You know everybody has a different story about how they access the Muse for example. Yeah I mean I guess he just like had this fantasy life inside his head and so that was in nineteen sixty five and he wrote the words to hello. I love you about a girl. He saw on the beach and also soul kitchen dedicated to a small soul food restaurant near the Venice Arcade which they were inspired by ordinary events but had interesting twists like common themes and visions of death and insanity. And so let's listen to hello. I love you pop fodder remember that one being visions of death and insanity in it but you know Hello. I love believe funeral pyres. Oh yeah that's right. Our level become tire. Yeah there you go so yeah you know. It's it sounds like a cute song in. You're like oh he's just sees this girly. It's cute on the beach and then he's in love with her. I remember being an elementary school in thinking like that was really really funny line. Hello I love you. Won't you tell me Your name? I just thought that was hysterical. And you know. And that's part of the dichotomy of the doors is you know. Sometimes the music is seems light and airy and And then you know lyrically you dive in and go. Oh all right. So let's let's play a little of Hello Comma. I love you I love you. Won't you tell me pin down game? I love you. Won't you tell me jump in? Walk down the line where you can't there's no bass guitar on the track it's strictly Ray In his left hand Doing Doing the baselines that just blows me away. I don't understand how you can have a band without a base. But they did. They did well some of the songs. Yeah yes they Quite a few have actual bass players most famously Carol Kaye and others Jerry Chef Yeah was another one that did lost up for them So but Yeah I mean the thought was Well we don't need an add another Person Because Ray can handle the base with his left hand. Special working Well that people use them all the time now but Columbia. I think provided him with a an instrument at the time that was possibly newish. That had really good based on it so he just like okay do that. Yeah Yeah and you know. Did it create a little bit of a unique Sonic Palette For the doors and between that and dens Moore's jazz influences in his drumming and Kruger's Lament Coats Style Guitar That would show up every once in a while. These guys are way better than a lot of people. Give him credit for it. There's there's there's a lot of snobbery when it comes to the doors of which I don't understand a lot of people just equate the doors with Jim Morrison. Yeah Yeah and don't listen to what's going on behind it while I think Jim is deserving as well for what he was able to convey I mean to me. He's really the first real dark character in rock and roll and unlike others that come. Afterwards like Alice Cooper You know Marilyn Manson everybody in between You know this was really authentic. I I think this was really his psychology coming out as a character. Yeah so but But yeah cool song to to kind of show the beginnings of the doors. They're yeah and speaking of Ray and playing the bass with his left hand They hooked up again on the beach of Venice. And so when during that encounter? Jim told Ray that he'd been writing songs. Any started singing and Acapella of version of the first verse from Moonlight Drive. And Ray said those are the greatest fucking song lyrics I've ever heard. Let's start a rock and roll band and make a million dollars in gyms. That's what I had in mind all along. Yeah I'm pretty sure I'm pretty sure what What you just read out of. The book is Word for word in the dollar stone movie of From the both Raanana gyms meeting there on the sands of Venice. Yeah I remember seeing that movie and just coming away and pretty much. Utter Disgust But oh really. Yeah I mean because the author of I think as Jerry Hopkins at the end of the book says you know that after the book came out a lot of people wanted to make a movie and Oliver Stone got the rights and that is depiction of Morrison was mainly only as the alcohol extremist. The drug SCHLUB. Yeah and then infuse it with any of the balancing kind of human aspects of gym. I mean that makes sense to me. Then I had this impression of Jim Morrison all these years as a boob. I mean I don't have much better impression of him now. But you know that's okay. I mean a disclaimer. I've never been doors fan but I've been a huge doors fan. I mean they were. They were pretty Central to my upbringing When it comes to music so all right let's play a little bit of Mnay DR Through the ADS TURN SLEEP. Stew know our well first of all that guitar on. That is really cool. I like that. I what I read was when Robbie. Krieger joined the band. He played bottleneck guitar as in addition to Flamenco and all the different styles that he learned Jim was so enamored of his bottleneck that he wanted him to play on all of the songs but of course he didn't do that. One boy do that again but anyway. I really liked that. Interestingly I just want to add one more thing that this was this song was on the first Set of Demos. They ever recorded before even lobby. And Jim I mean in John Were in the band recorded this with raise. Brothers and as a demo in it didn't go anywhere. Oh Yeah uh-huh interesting. Well let's let's also talk about the lyrics on their which impressed Ray so much you know. Let's swim to the Moon? Let's climb through the tide. Penetrate the evening that the city sleeps to hide. Let's swim out tonight love. It's our turn to try parked beside the ocean on our moonlight. Drive Pretty fucking good. I I don't think I ever like really heard the lyrics and I heard that song. Well now you have. That's thank you and a poetry reading. Yes because I know how much you like poetry with music behind it. I guess you know I was named after a poet and I still not really big into poetry. So weren't you yeah I believe the author of Frankenstein's husband? That's right Mary. Shelley's husband is actually the poet. Your name for it is true. I am Mr. Shelly Mr Percy Percy. Bish all right. Let's get back to this yes okay so At at this time he started doing everything he could think of to alter his consciousness and open the doors of perception. I know what's coming now being break on through to the other side. Take the highway to the end of the night. Visit Weird scenes inside the Gold Mine and ride the snake. He started gobbling acid and he wrote his family to tell them he was in a group and seeing his father was stunned and wrote a letter of strong objection in. Jim Never wrote his again yet. There probably wasn't a good idea Admiral Yeah I give them a little bit of support But yes so. He's doing all these things to kind of expand his consciousness and they finally get a house band Gig at a small club on the sunset strip less than fifty yards from the whisky a Gogo and the first night. No one showed up so that was a good place for them to get used to performing even though when Jim was not a natural no and and he apparently had a weak voice to start with he just needed his confidence and he would present his back to the audience who was very shy. Hard to imagine speaking from experience Yeah yeah it takes a little bit to get out there and open yourself up to the ANSA. Yeah it really does. I would think about that. Do it seems kind of natural. Yeah Yeah They were near the whiskey ago and they used to go down during breaks in their act and go to the whiskey ago and watch the headliners. They had great aspirations to be as big as the band love. Oh yeah which was very popular in those days Right Arthur. Right and they expanded their repertoire. just as they were being fired at the other club called the London fog they were asked to fill in at the whisky for Somebody that didn't show up or something and the woman who was the booker at the whisky really liked them and ask them to come back for a couple of months. They were fired at least once a week which I liked And Jim was already bringing drugs on stage. He was already getting really drunk. He was already like not showing up because he was too drunk to You know to perform But by this time they started playing the song the end at first very nicely written song about faded love which became eventually something quite different as we know that in performance art fashion you know he started embellishing on the song and it became one of the most provocative and shocking songs that they ever did. Now I still one of the most shocking things right ever ever put the vinyl Famously used in Apocalypse now and others Have employed that I believe it is like an eight minute song if I remember right No I'm sorry it's almost twelve minute song And we can't play the whole thing but obviously we should probably play the Most shocking part of it when you think. I think that's a good idea that's prepare the audience. It's based on the EOPLE apple. Myth please please. Yes go ahead. Oh that's all you WANNA do it. People I think a lot of people know what happens. but maybe they don't But I don't know if we can play the whole thing we tell them about it afterwards though. Okay okay. So here is The important part of the end it went into the room where sister live paid a visit to his brother. Walked on down your yes I want to kill you true yeah. He had a complicated relationship with his mother. I remember the first. I remember the first time I heard that song and I probably heard a bunch of times before I sussed out the lyrics here and was like Oh shit yeah okay I'm not sure what to do with that information now so it was It was I mean think about that. This is nineteen sixty seven. That's amazing that they could get away with us now. Of course there's really wasn't a radio cut. It was way too long for that at that time but once fan got a hold of it. Oh yeah they played the whole thing and You know he. He hid the The offending word. Yes yeah pretty. Well listen to and I was like you know you're like oh I guess you saying that I mean but obviously he was and Interestingly at the whisky a go go you often you know like I said he couldn't show up for a sad because he was too drunk and ray woods sing the songs instead and on the night that he only made the second set. That's when he stretched this song to include those words. I don't think the other band members knew what he was gonNA do. You know they were just like. Oh what's happening? Now is totally out of our control and we just need to keep on playing. You know this was the song that propelled him into pop mythology Yeah and they yeah. They were banned from performing at the whisky after that. Oh again highlighted in the Oliver Stone movie of them performing this and then you know getting thrown out to buy some beefy club. Honor looking dude Because of that but at the same time you know the cats from electro in the audience and so they mean race. Snap THEM UP. Yeah I was going to say unluckily. They were banned from performing at the whisky. But they got a record contract and The producer was hall Rothschild and produce their first album which was called the doors and they were able to get a similar sound to that of playing at the whiskey. The name taken directly from Aldous Huxley Adores Reception. Right and they got their first gig in New York City at that time The writers say all the top groupies came And somebody did a lot of promotion for them. You know to try like spread. The word like the booking person at the whisky got a fourteen year old girl for example to call her girlfriends and ask them to call the whiskey to ask when the doors would be back. You know just to hype them up and kind of make them more desirable. I was going to say one table. Okay that's not a word So I think they did this similar thing in New York City. You know it's like Oh this lead singer is like really hot and you know all the girls should come and see this band so their first single with Elektra on the first album was break on through and they had to edit the She get high to. What is it on the record? She get she gets they. Don't actually ever say hi. Kinda says he in the same way that he kinda hides fuck yeah he heights high But I I didn't. I didn't know that was an issue on the record. I know it's an issue when they perform at Sullivan right of which he was told not to. He agreed not to and he pulled this Castelo. Yeah he well he just looked right in the camera and just went for it. No hiding But yeah break on through. That's a great song so can have to play a little. Yeah let's play. I like the onto Guys are nine ninety nine today. Do the old which case dog tragedy. It's so it's a little garage you know sounding but you know it's got those you the vocal where where it's it's over driven a little bit and it's it's it's probably pagan the needles. Just just a little bit. Give it this really raggedy rough quality to it and And then there's you know great work by dense more great work by Krieger Obviously Manzarek is awesome. It's just you know I can see why even though there's probably better song on that album to be a single which ended up being giant hit I can see why they picked that one to be the first single off the yes. The doors wanted to make light my fire. Yeah that's that's the obvious choice while they did end up doing radio so but But yeah I mean. That's the obvious choices. Light my fire which does become a massive Hit An overnight sensation If you will I and a Panda. You know famously. By Robert Robby. Krieger and the first song he ever wrote that. Wow imagine that your first song you ever wrote. That would be pretty cool. Yeah cool yeah so I think we need to play a little of that. What what are you sure? Here's light my fire. It would be untrue. Would be before was to say girl. We couldn't get much higher. I just don't hesitate. Oh that's where the funeral pyre line is and I'm sure there are a million podcast listeners. Out there right now. Yes we've been saying that for fifteen minutes yes I write it I got it I got it. Yes yes it was light. My fire with the funeral pyre. Obviously that makes sense doesn't it? Yes because it rhymes right right in anyway. Great stuff totally opposite song than you get with Break on through It's it's kind of blue is like Yeah they're a beautiful woven woven lines By by the band in there Yeah I I mean it just says hit all over it. Yep It in on this Well Th- The funny thing is my My husband lived in. San Francisco is eighteen in sixty seven and he said he knew instantly. When you heard it on the radio that it would it would be a hit. But he and none of his friends like the doors so the they do talk in this book about the Rift between San Francisco and San Francisco. La kind of sensibility aesthetic. We we talked a lot about that. Yeah the Rock and rock podcast. That You know L. A. is far more professionalized And rightfully so You know that's where you went to if you had the goods Were San Francisco was a homegrown organic Sort of music scene for good and bad you know obviously there's Some interesting things that came out of San Francisco but really you know the music business is based in La. And I picked the doors Birds Buffalo Springfield The airplane Quicksilver MESSENGER and certainly the dead in nineteen sixty seven And again. I'm probably have a bunch of podcasts. Our listeners going what you're look good you know cards and letters or or or more. Welcome Yeah there definitely was a rift between the two Cultural Centers of the the Golden State. yeah on this the first album. This swear Jim kind of set in stone. His image that he lived with me in the Lizard King long after an even to this day because they didn't like the BIOS and liner notes on most albums so he created a multi page manifesto for the album that included some of his most imaginative catch phrases as the author say defining and limiting the Jim Morris image long. It's interesting that they use the word limiting because I think that he did feel limited after the first couple of albums. It's like oh I have to continue this mythical and legendary image. You know that people expect of me. And that was one of the things he struggled with O. Onnor and he's not the only one This is a common problem with With the music industries. You know they they put you in a box that categorize you ties you and then they stick you in a been In a record store in. That's where you're expected to stay And you know it doesn't invite a experimentalism In even ever ocean. Yeah which is which is sad. I obviously that we've gotten away from some of that today and But you know certainly at this time these cats were rebelling against you. Know the the Organization man in the corporatists structure and things like that but You Know Jim in many ways a he could have just done it and instead he just kinda railed against it And continued with the the process Almost all the way up to the end. I mean you know the escape to Paris was specifically to try to get away from this This character that Had taken over His existence. Yeah like you said. He railed against that. He railed against this image. But I mean he'd been railing against things you know his parents and the establishment. You know really all his life in fact in this fact sheet for this album. He said that his parents were dead which they are and yeah and so he was kind of like engaging in the especially with the edible lyrics of the end. You know the European me of the generation gap that he was really diving head first into or maybe that was just his life and the generation gap kind of affixed to him because he lived it and You know it's the Hippie era there's you know complete and utter rejection of the normal. American lifestyle and this is all being invented You know there's you know people just making it up for good or bad and You know In some things just didn't work out very well. So yeah so. We're coming ONTO THEIR SECOND ALBUM. Which is called strange days and one of the interesting Speaking of bucking trends was the song horse latitudes which was basically music and sound sound effects put to his apoel that he had written in high school. So this seems like a lot like performance are to me. All of the members of the doors played musical instruments. Toback the song in unusual ways plucking the strings of piano for instance and used a lot of strange sound effects against the background while he shouted out the lines of his poem. Jim You know thought of himself poet. I as I'm not sure how successful He was or even would've been if he took that on his vocation but as a lyricist You know for pop music You know I think he did pretty good so all right. Let's listen to a bit of this With just a bit. I just a bit in the Mouth Horse Latitudes when the still sea conspires and her Sahlin and aborted. Charan's read Chinese monsters. True sailing is dead. An instant and the trust love this green. That is not my g. I find it quite obnoxious. I'm just like that's not me. I just I don't find it aesthetically pleasing in any way. I don't think it's supposed to be aesthetically disturbed. I think it is disturbing now now. Look I will say and I'll read the lyrics here very brief but I mean if this is what he's writing in high school it's not too bad when the still sea conspires an armor and her sullen and aborted currents breed. Tiny monsters. True sailing is dead. Awkward instant and the first animal is jettisoned. Legs furiously pumping there stiff. Green Gallop and heads Bob. Up Poise delicate pause consent in Mute Nostril. Agony carefully refined and seal over so for a high school poem. Shy couldn't have done that you. Roses are red. Oh do so. You're not impressed now I am. I'm impressed I just. I actually don't really like it but that's okay. Well I it because it's disturbing. Yeah I I'm not really poetry person. Yeah it just. It did kind of remind me of a granted. It's over the top it certainly from this perspective at the time it You know I don't know it just sounds like a Charlton Heston model in some sort in San don't but the imagery is very pretty intense. Horses pumping their legs under the C. N. Yeah especially if you know the point is to try to get a rise. Outta people and into shock and surprise them this showing up You know in the middle of the album. A kind of makes you pause and go. Wpf You'd think I like that. Oh it's time okay. Okay moving on one that I like. A little better is people are strange which is also on this album and you know it just shows that He has a wide range. You know you don't think of Jim Morrison as being kind of socially anxious. But that's what the song is about and probably more about when you're on drugs. You know that people seem kind of menacing. 'cause we've been there. I've been there when I've taken certain drugs. You know that the world seems kind of you know evil but you know. It's I think it's really interesting that he that he wrote something like this because most of his songs are not about insecurity even though we've pretty much established that he was a rather insecure With himself probably bipolar As time goes on Depression also is a factor. Well okay Let's listen to gyms looking at himself and those around him. People are strange Faces look a run year low. We'll mincing might run your own street. Sloan evening down when you'll stray skull now when you stray one new strain a stray bureaus as other say in this section of the book this was an amazing array of world for nineteen sixty seven when everyone else seemed to be singing about incense and peppermint Mama lead skies. So yeah I mean you know. There's a lot of range like I said. Emotional and lyrical range on on this record. Yeah and again. You know to comment on that The rivalry between La and San Francisco. You know the doors are not to be a pop Sensations like the association or Some of those other Concocted bands For to sell pop hits they are trying to dig deep here and You know the song fits in with that. I think You can also make the case that When you're strange is You know when you are on Hallucinogens. Yeah so there are some layers going outside. Certain drugs can make you see the world a different kind of menacing And you know the the media loved him. At this time he gave great interviews and quotes and the Writers Writing About Him. He was he made them enjoy it. Oh that and let's face it easy in a package that You know the second coming of Alexander. The great he had his hair cut exactly like that and he loved the photographers to any love. Trying on costumes and posing and like that was really fun and interesting and they knew that and they liked it was always interesting to interview him and photograph him and he was using also his crowd Collective behavior things he learned in his junior college class. He was you know really milking the audience having long silences and and waiting and waiting. And letting the Leading the contention build and then coming back with a with a big bang and something really unusual. He says just when they're about to crack let him go. So he's really consciously working on his his stage act and his effect on on the crowds. Yeah what was that? Classy took social psychology. Yeah Yeah Yeah. Yeah and So back at the back at the ranch in his his natal family his brother his younger brother had been listening. The song light my fire for weeks before he knew that it was his brother's singing. His friend had to show him the album and like he had heard it on the radio and then a friend had the album and he saw his brother's picture on the album cover And his father of course we know it's thought that is totally straight list laced character and thought that this was just horrible thing that his son was doing His mother contacted him and said you know come home. We want to see you and don't forget to get your haircut. I you know how your father feels about. This and and Jim said to the person that took the phone call. Like don't ever put a call through from my mother again like this is just totally like a different world. And he's living right now he can't. It's like this that I'm not your little baby boy And they came his mother and brother came to see him at one of his shows and he purposely sang the end to shock his mother. That's right and then yeah and then she wanted to try to in a long time since I read that book. Yeah she wanted to try to see him and she kept trying to get through to him and he was telling everybody around him to keep her away from him and so she came out like to a different city to see him play and he just evaded her the whole time. Oh my God like a knife to the heart for a mother. Oh I can but don't treat your mother's that way. Yeah depends on what's going on but sure I get it. I don't think you know what I read about. Child is not like no anything. No but you know let's face it You know He was a wild child and You know being born to what eventually becomes a rear admiral Those are two very different worlds. Yeah they were not suited to be. There were not a good fit as parents child. Yeah and now remember. This is nineteen sixty seven still and we're having you know antiwar movement. It's the beginnings of the Antiwar Movement and the Vietnam is not going well alliance were drawn between us and them. Yep So He started writing more political songs. Probably most well known of this era is the unknown soldier which took its name from a revered natch. National Monument and was worked out on the road and much the same way. The doors had created their earlier songs in concert at the whisky ago. So over over a period of two or three months it developed into one of the band's most successful theater pieces yeah it is definitely a theater and you know it. It includes in the in the stage show of him acting out being shot by a firing squad. so Let's take a listen to them and just let me say it's it's not it's not specifically about Vietnam. It's just you know the the soldiers curse if you will in general In it just happens that You know there. Is this raging war going on that The Youth of America are just not into And are being conscripted into and as we know now It wasn't going good And was and it was about to get worse here so I I think it's a great timely song. to To to make a point in a general point that does work in the context of its times but also outside of it as well so let's hear The unknown soldier wait until the Woo Izzo little. So this show on your own and I think I heard some base yes. They're they're bringing in the basement. Yeah yeah so I like the authors say about this when it starts like a dirge and become suddenly a celebration so yeah it's you know starts out real like serious and and picks up In as as we said you know it's It works in its moment And it works outside of its moment as well I do love the interplay between What Krieger and Manzarek are doing their interweaving Their melody lines with that too. I like to have music to my poetry. Yes so around. This time he's Becoming a mythic drunk. Let's just say he moved. He moved from psychedelics. More before he had been more of a binge drinker and now he's becoming an everyday drinker In fact he and Janice Joplin got drunk together at a party. Minute ended in a brawl with her chasing him out of the House that they were partying and get him getting into a taxi in her like breaking bottles against the taxi but they were friends. This is the way. Yeah Yeah Bam bad drunk friends. Yeah and he. He was living in a ten dollar a room a room in the ULTA Sienna go motel. Which was he had his whole life. Kind of in a one very narrow geographic area. When years let any money wasn't spending his money on houses and cars and race horses. He was just spending his money on bar tabs and fancy clothes and Just shacking out in this motel room and then part of the time with his soulmate girlfriend. Pamela Who ARE PAMELA PAMELA? Courson not Arkansas Though I don't know maybe she did she meet Jim Morrison yes. She did okay because he had many many girlfriends. And you know some serious girlfriends but Pamela was always. She was lying that he returned to. Yeah and so he would stay with her. You know some of the time Everything was there. The doors offices Electra. The club scene the bars the restaurants and so he. That was all in a nice tight package. Oh Mendez. Let's gyms gyms about ready to get into serious. Trouble is what you're telling me. Yes I mean you know. Yeah trouble with all right here. In River City Yeah He. Who's getting bored? Actually by rock stardom in as funny as only two albums in now working on their third album of which unknown soldiers part and He wanted to decided he wanted to return to his poetry and publish his poetry without reference to his rock and roll image so every time he tried to publish poetry he wanted it published under James. Douglas Morrison instead of Jim Morrison So he was still doing that so he began to start to feel some contempt for his fans. He got kind of sick of sensationalism. And the sex Eitel hype and Realized that the whole concept of explorative music and you know theater in poetry was becoming lost on his audience and he just wanted see what kind of control. He did actually have over his fans so he decided to try to provoke a riot and Chicago in sixty eight and he got what he wanted. You know that was kind of like a both a positive and negative things for him because he realized like you know like he could control them they would do what he kind of urge them on to do but on the other hand. That's not what he really meant to do. So I think he was pretty ambivalent during this time and he's also getting self destructive with his drinking he was drinking so much as voice was starting to decline and he actually tried to quit. The doors and Ray talked him into giving a few more months. Which of course there were years. Yeah they are sick of Paul Rotschild as well His yeah. He was Kind of an exacting task master Type of producer Especially with them and they needed that But you know after A few years and Three albums I think they were. Kinda like going Can we just do this ourselves right? Yeah Yeah you know and also I didn't mention this but they were there. Were some people making a documentary of them Which turned into a movie called? I think Feast of Friends was called. Yeah and I've seen pieces of it. I Know Jim Jim. His his Mustang or are featured in it. Yeah yeah these guys that were doing. There were three guys That were doing the filming and they became good friends. 'cause they were there all the time and they drank together and had adventures but when he was watching some of the footage he saw part of a New York concert which bordered on a riot and he saw the police heaving teenagers bodily back into the audience and he realized that he hadn't actually had any control over the situation like he thought he was just a puppet of allied forces only vaguely understood he said so whereas in the one point he felt like Oh. I caused a riot and I meant to. I have all this control. He realized that there were other forces at work and he had actually less control that he was being kind of. Egged on to be this person that would do that. And he didn't want other people to have control over him so he decided to do something to kind of end. Debt and Well before consciously or UH consciously that he decided when they went to Miami Miami well bef- before they went to Miami. He saw this a blonde card theater group called Living Theater. And in this performance the actors kind of Went to the very legal limit of nudity and a lot of people were doing that. Yeah and he decided that was very interesting so he decided in. Miami didn't tell the other members of the band that he was going to do this. He started taunting the audience. Calling them idiots at telling people to come up and give him some love and and The ban was trying to carry on at that time. This is when at all. When you didn't have internal security. You had the local copyright as secure. The cops were there right and of course they saw everything you know. There's a lot of controversy about what actually happened. He did intend to go to the legal limit. But he's very limit. Poland your sh long now and he would. He was actually didn't usually wear underwear but on this night. He was wearing boxer shorts and his leather piss according to the authors. His plan was take his pants off though. I don't you know boxer shorts. I don't know somehow I can't see him in boxer shorts so you know they seem so like tame His handler. You know jumped on. Ray Tried to get you know Jim to stop. He looked like he was GonNa Take Dick out and and then his handler came on and tried to get him from pulling open his pants and he Apparently he either did show his penis or he didn't. I'm sorry said the word parent everybody in the band. Where's he did not right but they got people to say I mean the. The concert ended fine. There was a there was no riot and there was no I mean. A bunch of people jumped on the stage but then the police cleared it out and it was fine. But in the meantime there was a young man who agreed to serve as a complainant against Jim for lewd and lascivious behavior and such was the climate at that time I guess especially in Florida where the orange juice queen was. What was her name again? Bryan Bryan. Yeah Yeah I don't think she was part of this. You know that was the was Jim Wasn't gay. So that wasn't wasn't taking up. Oh yes she was. She was strictly focused on gay penises. That's right yeah probably gay astles as well. Yeah not that gays are assholes but an asshole that is gay is my point and she really spent a lot of her time and effort focused on those two NATOMA. Yes Yeah Yeah. Really important work yeah. Wouldn't you agree? Yes totally luck. I thought she was disgustingly gross. I still do. That's our one minute of the okay. So so this man. Young man claimed that Jim did quote lewdly analysts seriously exposed. His Penis placed his hands upon his penis and shook it and further. The said defendant did simulate the excess masturbation upon himself. I don't know and oral copulation upon another unquote okay. The next day. This was smeared on the front pages all over the country and in less than three weeks. What was happening in Miami was endangering the future of the group and now the group was banned. Nearly everywhere about twenty-five booked gigs were cancelled and radio. Stations in several cities began removing the doors whether it was true and playlists that sell reactionary for the first time in the doors career. The media turned against them. Oh and that. Miami trial was drawn out Over one or two years it seemed like forever. I think to them. And when they did get booked they had to put down a monetary guarantee. Yeah ironically around this time even though it was recorded before that incident. Oh there's a hot tub released around which is a traditional love song written by Robbie and another million selling single and but even though it did that well and it sold so many records the prophets were mostly spent on lawyers legal cough. Yeah right all right so touch me baby. Okay told them all. Come on. Come on see that I prayed? What was that promise that you see? What was that Brown today? Know GonNa well probably the most highly produced single of their career You know with the strings and all of that just A A lovely song when you get right down to. Yeah I I I remember the day Jim Morrison Died in the reason I do is becoming died. Oh sorry Oh am I getting this story? Alert and I was in Texas was at my uncle's Horse Ranch and one of my other uncles was in playing pool and I walked in and he is. He just played the song over and over and over again. I'm like What's going on? Why are we playing this song over and over again? He goes well because the singer. Jim Morrison died today knows like Oh and I might have even said. Oh how old was he said? Twenty seven and I remember thinking while that's really old. Yeah Oh yeah anyway enough of me. Yeah well Jim Met One of the authors of this book Some time after that incident and Jerry Hopkins who was Rolling Stone Magazine and Jim kind of totally changed his image Around this time you've got fat. I meant as his personality image but yeah I guess. He got a little long You know I'm sure he was coached. Like it's time for you to straighten up and fly right because this is really hurting the band. And it's costing us a lot of money so he also wanted to quit. I don't really give a shit about this. I want to be a poet right. Yeah he did and But you know he had extensive interviews with Jerry Hopkins and Eager to please you know honest serious and you know Jerry. The Rolling Stone printed one of his poems so he was really happy about that And so that was kind of the beginning of their relationship And then they started recording or almost completed the fourth album at this time which was called the soft parade and And it was kind of frustrating Kind of road for this album and Jim only contributed about half of the material so there weren't as many You know that wasn't as much Amazing run you're trying to say it was. I S that they said they. They added additional strings horns by the local studio jazz musicians which further blurred the once. Lucid doors sound so The one that I like from this album is called easy. Ride Is kind of a bluesy. Jim hoped this would be the single and The lyrics are sharp and accessible. But but there's a poetic twist in the last stanza so I don't know if we should. I guess we're going to have to play the last stand here. He always puts in some. You know it's a normal song was a pretty loves Lipsett. We have a weird thing going on here. Yep Yep all right so let's play a little of the soft parade. No excuse me easy. Easy right and And then We'll talk about on the other side Yeah can a Hoedown Yeah Yeah I don't know it's like a new country. Yeah Little Bit rock and Roll Hall. Hey he's young so there was another incident shortly after where he goes to he decides to go to Phoenix to see the rolling stones and take some buddies with him and he and his buddy. Tom Got very drunk even before getting on the plane and they were just fooling around and messing around throwing things at each other and then his friend grabbed one of the stewardesses and by the time they landed the FBI and the police. They're saying that they were charged saying that they were being drunk and disorderly in interfering with the flight of an aircraft so they had to spend the night in jail and they had this another trial that Jim had to show up for. And unfortunately the stewardess mistakenly identified. Jim As the one who grabbed her instead of Tom so his friend. Tom was acquitted. And Jim had to stand trial for groping. The you know the stewardess but the funny thing is like after they went to Phoenix for a pretrial meeting and met up with With these people the stewardesses and the pilot at the hotel bar and they all got drunk together and the stewardess decided to pull her accusation and reverse prior testimony. So got out of that one. But you know as an additional Drain on money resources and on on their reputation and on them gigging and and making music so that Jammie couldn't keep out of trouble Well when you're drunk and board That is a bad concoction. Yeah now they're they're new material The that they were recording and writing would Was actually go on the upswing. This was When they recorded the album Morrison Hotel and they Authors say lyrically. This would be. Jim's best work in years and the other members provided strong support so Peace Frog I know we played this on. Let it roll. But it's like one of my favorite and this is a tune that the band loves so much that they recorded it even when there weren't lyrics but then a poem was discovered in one of Jim's notebooks called abortion stories. I have no idea why and they use nearly all of it for the lyrics. So the coincidence was that the lines from that poem fit the music created by the others very closely so kind of serendipitous But he also added these two lines which apparently were inspired from when he was a child how he witnessed a car accident in Rhode Island crying. Fragile eggshell mind. That's right no I know that one heart. Oh do you okay? Well apparently that he characterizes that as the worst thing that ever happened to him something like that. Well let's hear it. Yeah Peace Frog through to hang down would be the love that Ruggie robby. Krieger opening the Nasty Guitar. Very cool Yeah but yeah. It changes in halfway through the song. He then goes into his little rhumba. Poetry moment where he gives. Well let's let's Prince Song. Yeah well let's bring. Let's bring that back up here. Real quick for the for the folks at home to to listen to to that Indians scattered pleading child fragile election. What did you think your just? It seemed like a different like they should have made a different song. Like do something else with that if my song until you did this. It's the bridge. Brings it down a musically edge. Though she came I love that. Yeah all right. Well he was. A gem was having a lot of stressors in his life. Even though that album did very well it was certified gold and they were the first American hard rock band to achieve five gold albums in a row. He still had these trials upcoming. Also one of his girlfriends were pregnant He had twenty three suits pending money. Pressures were big and he continued drinking through all of it so he started talking at this time about going to Paris Saying that he liked to go there as soon as the Miami court case was settled and so in August nineteen seventy. He went to Miami to stand. Trial finally His lawyer had this great idea of arguing about community standards for you know like we have community standards in the pornography laws for example. And saying that you know the community standards are changing and this isn't really that bizarre what he did. Because that's what kids you know like the social mores are changing. But the courts wouldn't let him bring that into it so basically they had a lot of witnesses on one side saying that he did not expose himself and he said they had a lot of witnesses on the other side saying that they saw something Acknowledge herself this safe. You know I mean to me presumed innocent right so therefore unless you know there's incontrovertible evidence like the photograph says hey that is a circumcised penis. Yeah or maybe answer. I don't know but you get my point point okay. Nfl So what happened was he was found. Innocent OF LEWD. Behavior and public drunkenness. But guilty on the charge of profanity which was missed. Oh Fuck no. Yeah luck yes. The jury was hung on the charge of exposure but eventually found him guilty of it that misdemeanor so he was guilty to misdemeanors and he later. He said of this time. I think I was just fed up with the image that had been created around me. I just put an end to it in one glorious evening the basic message was realized that you're not really ear to listen to a bunch of songs by some good musicians. You're here for something else. Why not admit it and do something about it? So he was sentenced to basically like eight community eight months of no of county jail. And what yes. But you know he never got to that point of you never served us. Yeah and then some probationary time. Eight months for sixty days of hard labor for exposure for profanity and six say day. Yeah and for exposure. He was sent to six months. So yeah so. That's like eight months. My math is correct. Maybe maybe should have not picked the south. Yeah do that San Francisco right right right right. Yeah everyone's got a slap on the wrist. Which is what if anything he should have gotten so all right moving along. We're moving along those before. The end of his life last album with him L. Everyone Yeah mazing songs on that and much of the material had been written long before so it came together very quickly. L. A. Woman which we're going to listen to some of was his despairing salute to Los Angeles City saw is diseased and alienated and in the song as you know are the words Mr Mojo rising keep on rising he was. Let's see what do we call that? An antic nanogram. Jim Morrison. Yeah which I had no idea really Mr Mojo voicing oh well Tinman plays that song so I know that that is an Anagram for Jim Morrison and I actually play that up. You do I think you have? Yeah thank you very much. Thank you thank you Jim. Jim Smiles down me. When I do it I think so. All right so spits on you or something. I don't know shows me. Penis fuck is being se. Sorry let's get to it L. A. Woman. Oh made a window on it will you? Don't know no pity. Hey you're in. La Woman. I am woman right. Maybe was right nearby. You I was born in San Francisco. Maybe he was writing in about painl- yeah of course. Yeah Yeah I think he was. He wrote a lot of Songs about her. Yeah and then Paris city of lights. Oh Yeah right though. He has had yet to move them although not long a long afterwards he did. That's right. Yeah now the other song that was on this. I know that one too. I know where you're going. Riders on the storm ethic rates slower. And it's got all the rain. His brain was slower jazzy or more melodic and generally thought to be more auto biographical but speaking of Paul. I mean you mean a serial killer autobiographical. I am no idea like I like I said. I don't listen to lyrics very much but Anyway Paul Rothschild. Their producer didn't like the new material. He called riders on the storm. Cocktail music. For those fighting words Christian. Yeah cocktail I would say so. It's like to be honest with you. It's one of the greatest keyboard Solos of all time. Yeah so I don't know what to say about that Cocktail music and there's a great great story. It's dark and twisted. Now this is this is good shit. Yeah I maybe he was getting tired of them. He said they should produce. It was the last single. I think Before his passing love her madly was that I think that was afterwards. Oh I think before his passing the that this was the last one. So but Yeah let's let's play at that. We need rain riders on the storm riders on the storm riders on the storm in Canada. Sasser born to this world worth Rome like Darwin and riders on the storm. Ano know just very moody like A. It's in its very cinematic. Yeah works perfectly between You know Ray In gyms of college education I guess. So what do you mean their College Education Film Student? Oh Yeah right cinematic. Oh yeah okay. I gotTA storytelling Spacing OUT HERE. All right images are in your head so now. This is the beginning of the end. Yeah or the end of the beginning of the end writer they they agreed to perform live in. Dallas and New Orleans and Jim was in good spirits and they previewed riders on the storm which we just heard which the audience loved so in Dallas. Everything went really well but in New Orleans what this is what they call a tragedy. The writers called the end and they said that night race saw Jim Spirit go ray said he lost all his energy midway through the sat he hung on the microphone and it just slipped away you could see his spirit leave him and he was drained unquote may be a little revisionist history on. Ray manzarek part Who was known to delvin? Some of that But that was their last girl here. Yeah Yeah and of course hindsight after what is going to occur. Few months later You know you look back and go. Oh Wow oh yeah he just he. He wasn't with it anymore. Man He just you know it was. It was no no no surprise and he died. You know that sort of thing but I think you know we've been talking about this throughout this entire episode. Is that you know. Jim was kind of reluctant. Rockstar and You know I think You know at first. It's all exciting new and You Know Uh and fun And then you know you know you get asked the same fucking questions over and over and over again you know the expectations are del Greater the pressure is greater And you know. He has as a rebellious spirit to begin with. And now he's rebelling against it self medicating we've already established the possibility of psychological issues. You know five. Plus years of this Will wear on just about anybody. Yeah yeah that sounds like Sounds very draining to me. Especially with all the drinking going on his not healthy yet. He was Still working on his he had poetry. Had Film me was working on music the theatre and They were producing this last album Which he told everybody was a blues album and the last song that we're going to play right now is Love her madly which was on that album. L. A. Woman and would be released as their first single and exactly a year and it was much more commercial sounding then the rest of them and got quite good. You know now. Ask the back into the game. Yeah they could've continued on and as we know they did continue on without Jim. unsuccessfully and horribly so There's nothing that that is worthy To come out With with them missing Jim Until retrospectively You know the guys Getting together and doing it as a door's sort of tribute to If you will but Yeah let's play a little of their Their single love her madly. Don't need a what you say don't you love L. A. Okay. Got Something Do you love her madman now. You don't love your man. Do you love for me? I don't have anything to say about love her madly so you don't love her madly no. I don't love her madly. Oh well then who do you love? Manley? I love my husband of course so you love him madly. Yes yes so you would really just change one word and you'd be happy then. I would sing this song. Oh that can be done you know. Yeah oh no. I don't think I'm going to cover any doors song so don't think so. I don't know okay. I suppose people are strange. Maybe you could. Yeah well but get us out of here. There's a happy ending. No there's not what I'm so sorry. They moved to Paris Pamela. Any it was happy when I don't know she's she seemed to. She wrote some revisionist history. They were very happy there But you know he decided he could do everything you needed to do in Paris. And they went there and the doors stayed behind and started working up some new material thinking he was gonna come back and do the lead vocals for it but By July First Nineteen seventy-one. He had become terribly despondent and depressed. He had You know some new drinking buddies and But he was trying to quit drinking and trying to write and his friends and Pamela took him out to dinner. And that they're the story becomes very garbled there different telling about what happened next but by Monday. July Fifth Jim was rumored to be dead but he had been rumored to be dead many times before while he'd been dead two days by then. Yeah so 'cause he dies on July fair yes so the doors heard. The rumor and Bill siddons their manager called Pamela and she answered the phone and told Bill come right over to Paris but didn't say anything else and he left and arrived in Paris on July sixth he was mad at the flat by Pamela. The seal coffin assigned death certificate and the official cause of death was listed as heart attack and by July eight. The coffin was lowered into the ground. So there were you know so then. We were left with all these questions. There's people who still believe. He never died like he just escaped and like changed his identity. But Yeah I remember question is like how did he die because nobody ever saw the body but Pamela? I think he died like Whitney Houston died too. Many too many opioids and slowly sinking the WOK. Yeah I just passed this ad in the bathtub and yeah I mean I mean. That's you know autumn's razor you know. The simplest explanation is used to true so You know I mean you know He. He and Pam were both known drug users. She was a heroin use. Yeah he was not known to use heroin because he had a fear of needles. But there are other ways to In just that truck And we're so. Yeah which you know in the bathtub is not a good idea. So why do people do that? Because they think it's you know it's a comfortable cozy. Yeah but Yeah so I'm sure drugs were involved. I doubt any foul play I know there is talk of the Pam had something to do. I don't believe that I don't think I think it was just a question of You know You know we've seen enough of this Especially in the last several years Recently that you know with with with much better accounting and reporting These days that it probably was as I said A You know an opioid use of some form Barbiturates what have you and Alcohol alcohol obviously and In about the. It's not that hard to kill yourself not sit down because that is the one thing that Pamela stuck with is that she found him in the bathroom. Yeah so so and You know yeah on July third. Nineteen seventy-one You know he was the last of the of the twenty seven. You know that that that crop you know the Jimi Hendrix and Janus had died the year before an October seventy and You know less than a year later now. Jim was gone. You Know Brian Jones and sixty nine In the L. A. Dat. So and there you have it at the end of the sixties Yeah I thought. This book was interesting in that You know like gym class. It's rock and roll book. It's one of those books that if have you WANNA get in dive into To rock and roll history and It's a good one to do It's not you know Obscure it's not heavy. Yeah it's easy to read and one thing I have to point out is one of the reasons it's easy to read and it was so popular is that there's a line of dialogue in it that's gotta be somewhat made up. I mean I've written ten years ten years Laden allies. Yeah biography at ten years later. Yeah and So I had a little problem with you. Know you don't know he said that. And then he said that. And then you said that but it makes it more readable in that way and it's all you know from interviews and people's memories and stuff like that but I thought his life was interesting in the way that it's not that he was a normal person and then he got into stardom and that made him get into drugs and alcohol and stuff and he you know rows and rows and then he had a crash if he was that was how he was that was his personality. So one reviewer Of this book describes Jim is not the cliches of rise and fall of corruption by wealth and fame but of a sudden burning out of a volatile spoiled gifted intelligent artistic individual and so he he didn't have a sudden decline. He was kind of declining. Seems like most of his life was kind of headed in this direction because he was born. I think an addict. He was born an extremist. And a you know somebody who always wanted to push the envelope and when you have those two things together you can't really live long. Well Yeah I mean obviously saw a lot about this and it's just you know until you're about thirty you kind of think you're invincible. Especially a male here man especially a male with a with a an ego that is being stroked constantly by hangers on and groupies and And everybody else and now you have. This of that is You know put on you. I've thought about why twenty seven and it just seems that twenty seven is that age of you know you've been in this game for several years you've seen it all you've gone through the excitement in the the shiny newness of it and now it's like it's a fucking job and You know you just don't know how to handle of this sort of stuff and you know as we've discussed there's drug and alcohol every where Which is you know well known musical circles. And you also you know aren't aren't quite fully. You know a formed frontal lobe adult just yet your you know and you still think you can do all these things in in handle it and You know in your self medicating and you know so. It's not surprising. And I think a lot of these guys. If they could have just got into their thirties they probably would have been able to show. I need to slow down a little bit. Can't be Drinking that much and snort net much and taking that much more and things like that but you know unfortunately Jim passes there and As body sits in perilous. Shea cemetery which I was lucky enough to visit when I went to Paris. And he's definitely one of those guys that Will continue to come up whenever we talk about the rock and roll story So all right let's get Outta here What do you got planned for next? Got Any idea I do. I'm reading etta. James is out of biography. It's an older book obvious. Yeah she's been dead for a while but yeah I don't know I somebody oh I know the Chicago Blues History Twitter handle suggested it to me. They did on twitter. Yeah Great Yeah. That was really cool. Excuse TALKING ABOUT ETTA. James's autobiography and I went. She wrote an autobiography. What and he told me the name of it there there I am. I'm looking forward to that all right.

Coral Courts Radio Hour: Tim Picks the Music This Time with Brad Schreiber

"Hey, welcome back to the courts radio hour. Presentation of deep dish radio. I'm Tim powers in this is my personal mixed to, you know, every now, and then I put together a set list playlist or a friend of mine comes in with a set list and playlist of music that is important to them, not always the definitive list of music, but certainly things that they enjoy and today is a little bit different. And no exception at the same time today. I put together a list of nine cuts and going through them with me today is my dear friend, author Brad Schreiber hybrid. Hello. We have turned the tables. And now you control the horizontal you control the vertical. It's true. That's right. And I get in Telugu young Tim Powles about Zilly's his chosen Z's very unusual song. Yeah. And man tell you putting together this list, you know, I had. Probably a hundred songs that I would love to play. But if I put them all together, it really shows that I have a horrible fear of abandonment. So I thought all right. I'm gonna I'm going to mix them up a good thing. You didn't say anything about it? So your audience will. No, that's true. So thank you for listening. Thank you for hearing me, all I ever wanted was just to be heard. Thank you so much. In fact, speaking of which we've gotten some great reviews on itunes. Thank thank John for for leaving one on on itunes about how well curated we are like to thank Kathy for for listening and saying good things about Brad and me, and the we know we're nothing if not psychotically eclectic, but what's really going to be exciting for me is, you know, in our previous shows, I've always brought in the music, then Tim would bring in perhaps one song. So now, I'm getting an understanding of not only his appreciation of mine using quote, unquote, my music, but where he came from how he grew up because what you listen to is just sonically would interest. You it's what things move you. Fans of Lear IX, right? What feelings what eras of music speechis star in another site, actually, get to know more about you through this process. And that is why put this show together. He knew who you were who are you? You kinda do. Stuff. So let's let's start with. Let's start with a cut that that I discovered using years ago. Just. I heard it on. I I heard it on what used to be called in an AO our station album oriented form rock and roll station where the jockey to be able to play whatever they want, and it was a station in Saint Louis. The callers w m R Y. It was a low power frequency that was owned by the convent of Our Lady of the snows in on the side of the St Louis community, and they owned transmitter they own broadcast transmitter. And I don't know the story behind it. Probably somebody like Ron Stevens does. And one day. They flip the the format. It used to just be like, a low power Catholic radio station and somebody talked him into making making money and playing some music in the jocks play whatever they wanted. God love you Mark close for just being awesome and one day transition. Yeah. And and it was free form, and it was beautiful radio for for a good longtime Jackson had complete control of whatever they wanted. And for me. You know, I was seventeen eighteen at the time and. Listened. Religiously the pun intended, the the minute that class bell rang. You know, I would find a radio, and I would be tuned in until I couldn't stay awake anymore and loved it there. I'm blessed with growing up with some great radio KM R Y W M R O w the mar y w Mary voice of marrying, married. Wm r y from Our Lady of the snows. Yeah. The w because the transmitter was on the Ellen side. And as you probably know, the call letters for radio and television stations begin with w eastern municipality river and k west of the Mississippi branches, why cities like like Saint Louis have ws, and how rare it is that a convent radio station would allow anyone to play rock and roll unless you played God gave rock and roll to me constantly. I can't believe that's that's so fantastic. Actually Arjun God gave rock and roll to you. Almost on the list because it was such a great song. And I just love Rhodesia. Yeah. So anyway, I have a very vivid memory of even the clock radio that this song came to me through. And well, yeah, why don't we why don't we just play it? And then then I'll tell you the story, but it is it's a straight ahead rock and roll you might want to remember the name of the band and and the song title out of Canada. The band is called brave belt's. The cut is called another way out. Good. The very last note. Isn't it though? Let it let it play all the way down to that fade. Because like right at the end Randy Bachman just throws in that last little lick usually songs over musicians lightness cigarette and leaving the leaving the studio but during the fade, he's like one more barrier. So that's Randy Bachman who had just broken up, the guess who? And those vocals should sound familiar because it's also chat Allen from from the guess who. But the band is called brave belt, and it was the transition ban. The only put out two albums between the guess who and Bachman Turner overdrive, and you hear little elements of Randy's additions to the very large guests who body of work. But you also hear you also hear what Bachman Turner overdrive will be the minute. Randy gets his distortion pedal. And at the same time, you're hearing what Chad Allen added vocally to the guest who. Yeah. Because Burton Cummings was such a present and very strong personality as well as voice. Yeah. That you realize, hey, this guy was really an important part of that sound. I don't know if he wrote a lot of the songs for the guests who, but he was very important PA. Vocal sound of the group, and it's kind of nice to see him in another venue or with another band. Yep. And I love those guitars man, and there's got to be probably five six Qatar is deep in there. And if it isn't it sure sounds like it, you know, there's that heavy rhythm. You know, the I got the I don't know the court. They're very syncopated, by the way, it grabs. You write off? You know, it's a great idea for songwriting where the start of the soul is powerful syncopated guitar work. You know, we, and it creates an expectation in the listener and the drums are mixed. So well because I mean that drummer pulls Ringo Starr, you you don't hear it because it's mix so well, but when I mean by that when he pulls Ringo star's. He's really on that crash cymbal all the way through it. And and it's mixed in perfectly. So that it doesn't overrule like, you know, a lot of the Beatles. First two albums are almost overruled by that crash cymbal. And I just I love the mix on this. I love the anger at a love anger in the lyrics of someone who is obviously shit and gets away with it. You know, you've found yourself another way out way to go. You know? Right. You want all this sympathy? But as soon as the chips are down, you're out, right? And and I just I love that. It's just a solid rock and roll hook, you know. And I just I just love this record. Now. This is probably the first time you've ever experienced this record. I have never heard this, and I instantly gravitated toward it. You know, you, and I will trade music with each other and you'll respond really strongly to certain things over other. This is the hook is just instantaneous. You don't always experiences. Sometimes you have to wait for a while to hear a song or there's even a middle section you go. Oh, I really like that. I really liked the chorus boom. This got you one of the other things. I. About this song is normally my brain gets bored. When you repeat things. Okay. You said it over and over again different lyric right in this song another way out and repeating it kinda works on you. It's the echo of here. You're doing the same thing over and over again, we're getting sick of it. You know, aren't you sick of doing the same thing over and over has a certain message? So you don't mind and the vocals are processed really beautifully. They are there. They're not like over the top. And they're not totally dominant by one single voice. And you know, it's that echo of fact, I don't mean literally echo echo echo echo. I mean hearing something over and over again, and it has a power rather than boring. You it makes his point. Yeah. And you get the impression that the subject of the song of the person about whom the song is written has reached that last straw. You know, you've done this enough right done this enough. And I think that's why. Starts at the another. Yeah. Remember when you and I on a previous show. Listen to Bruce Springsteen. I chose a meeting across the river. And yeah. And we talked about the story of the song is this is their last shot. And it's probably going to go wrong and something very bad is going to happen that feeling of inevitability. Yeah. So that's kind of thing that's going on. I think with this band and the song, you know, is you found another way out, but how long can you do that is is the implication? And I really like that. Yeah. It Seve's with a lot of Randy's anger at at Burton that that later comes out in one of my favorite, actually, my very favorite BDO song called. Hey, you which did not make the list, but I love that sucks. Oh so much. So tell me as well as your listeners. Why why is there any Bachman angry at Burton coming? Well, historically, they've gone back and forth. But there have been. Some law some legal cases back and forth about about ownership and about you know, lapsed copyrights, Burton picking up things that are legitimately Randy's. And you know, it's it's deep inside baseball. But it made for an awesome song. So if you ever get a chance to listen to hey, you by by Bachman Turner, overdrive just forget that it's the taking care of business guys. And it's it's a rocking little too. And and again before we go to the next song, again, it's the personal experience of a band, bad experience leading degrade art. Yeah. The who? Did you steal my money? They write last episode. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. From our last episode, they get ripped off. But then they write a song not about the who personally getting ripped off. But about people who've been violated, and I think it's one of their great lesser known songs came out of bad, Mojo, right or the white album, for example, which people regard as the artistic high. Point of of the Beatles as individuals long writers as opposed to start pepper, which is the the combined effort of the Bandon and George Martin people look at the white album as a as a fine piece of art. But it's largely there are exceptions. But largely based on personal experience all of those songs written from especially John songs are written from very personal, introspective, painful point of view. And this is this is no exception except that it's in a short little short Little Rock and roll song. So message to bands out there. Even if you're about to break apart that might be the moment where you do your best art never. The next song. Yeah. So what's what about the cheater? I've heard this song before. But not by this artist. You've never heard you never heard the Bob. I didn't know there was another version other than Bob Kuban version. Maybe I'm wrong wasn't there. A black Aren be group that did the cheetah perhaps we'll have to look into that. This is I grew up in Saint Louis and Kuban was was a local band, and it was for from my understanding during the the mid to late sixties. It was it was kumons band that you went to go see in barring a traveling band. This was this was the local ban that would do do covers. And they were you know, they that's where all the cool kids went. And this was their only hit and to the best of my knowledge. It was a regional hit. I don't know that it got airplay outside of. Okay. Lewis imagining real weird. Things before I might be making up. When will you listen to it? You can go check and see. Yeah. And it also reminds me of another hit that we're going to talk about on the other side that is also the Matichon link believe it or not to the idea of the cheater right on. So. St Louis, adult rock classic six thirty K ex. Okay. Here's the jeeter. Inside. Just. Gear. Okay. So Bob Kuban Inman right with a song that really ought to be called. Hey, listen to my Turner impression. The cheetah, and I found okay. So it peaked at number one in Australia hit the billboard hot one hundred Kuban never had another hit and the story of the singer. Walter, Scott is the subject for another show. And but this was important to you because it's the Saint Louis phenomena. On it is just this this cool little record. Right. That was a regional like the last regional hit that I really know of that outside Saint Louis not a lot of people know, so am I crazy or is this what I heard on AM radio perhaps FM radio as well in the San Francisco Bay area when I was growing up, and there is no other version. I can't find another verse. So I literally heard Bob Kuban. I heard this song. And I thought oh I like when they hit that upper register, right? The intensity of it. Yeah. We'll heart and like fool-hearted clown. I like that phrase. You know, it was it just was different than they bring the horns at the end. I I heard the song when I was a kid, Tim. And and it just look is a compliment. It sounds so classic that it sounds like three or four or and be groups might have done it. Right. That's a compliment to Kuban. And I mean, you can tell coupons drummer 'cause the the the drumming in it, really good very. Present Walter Scott. You know, sounds a little bit like like movie Elvis, you know, mid sixties movie Elvis, you know, that's funny. I mean, there's a lot going on in this record the the horns and everything are mixed and deliberately chose to play the stereo version. So if you're listening in headphones. Yeah. On your right hand side are those horns, you know. Like, you're standing in the middle of the room. And it's it's really the, you know, you would think record like this would be kinda muddy and mixed for AM radio. It's surprisingly clear for for get it done yesterday knock off kinda single and Kuban never had another hit after this. You know, I was going to say another aspect of this is your from Saint Louis, and yes, this was a local act, and you feel certain amount of pride as you should. So the same thing happened to me when I was living in the bay area. Yeah. And in the sixty rock and roll bands in the sixties in the bay area. They were couple of not all of them were good, by the way. But some of them played at my high. School wreck. I mean. Okay. Antenna might hurt. They played in my high school or to them. Yeah. You know, a number of other pretty well. Cold blood, Lydia, really, she played at our high school Burlingame is school. Right. So you know, it was nice to be alive at a time. When those kinds of bands were coming up, but here's something even more personal to me that there was a group called the vegetables that then became a group called the MO Joe men, and they did an old folk tune cult sit down. I think I love you. Right. Very field did too. Yes. And it did very well. Well, I lived in a town called foster city in San Mateo county. Right. And on our street on Polynesia drive. Some of the members of the vegetables, I we could walk by their garage. They were literally garage Jay Wright with a J rehearse their music in the way, we knew it was them as they would rehearse sit down. I think a love unit was note for note. Exactly. What would y? Wind up being played on the air. And we just thought, oh, that's so cool. There's there's like a a not very well known. But really cool jangle pop. San Francisco sixties group that lives on our what you're saying is the local rock group down the street was trying hard to learn the song. That's right. And and they they were quite lovely and Jan Ashton was the name of the lead singer. Yeah, she changed her name because it sounded more British that way. But they were quite lovely. So yes, I feel a certain pride with the bands that played in my high school yet. Oh, I didn't go to the rec dances. I did wind up, you know, perform at Winterland with Carlos Santana, my comedy group and and the vegetables with a J lived on my street in foster city soda like you and Bob Kuban, I feel certain pride. We're gonna come back to Saint Louis in in a couple of songs, but the next one is a band out of Chicago. And I gotta think my my uncle or former I dunno Angelo, EPA Lido of of Chicago, Illinois. Thank you very much for hitting me to this band. I was a an early teen and. As just. We sat around one night just play in records, and he gave me this cassette. And he's like you need to hear just stuff, and it was stuff that he just taped off WLS FM. When Stephen Gary were the the morning guys for WLS FM, and he would just he grabs him songs that he loved W L S F M N is in Chicago. Okay. And and he just gave me a cassette. And it was like really weird, you know, far out AOR stuff from the from the glory days of of free form radio. And you know, some of it was like, the New York rock and roll ensemble some of it was, you know, deep cuts from bands. You've heard this. Chicago band called the cryan shames chat a minor hit with a song called sugar and spice, which is kind of bubble gummy. You know, it shows up on on 'em foll- here and there and they had an album called scratch the sky. Which I bought because this song was was on it. It's a cover of the Carole king, right? Who wrote up on the roof of on the roof and other many other people covered it very nicely. But but Carole king. I believe I think often in king wrote it, and and they do a really great version which starts off the kind of folk and then just built to this beautiful production. Right. And it just it creates this awesome seen in front of you. Which just starts when you listen to it starts off single voice by itself, just isolated on the roof. And then you kind of watch the universe expand around that roof and sonically it it just paints the entire universe around you. And it's it's just a beautiful thing. And then transitions into a completely different song. And then fades, and it's. For being a seventeen year old kid one at 'isolation. But also wanted to be part of the world and your brain. You know follows all kinds of different pass as you try and sort your sort your life out. This is this is a lot of what that's like. So this is Goffin king from a very classic song up on the roof done by the cryan shames on the coral courts radio hour right here right now. And. Two. Oh when. Could be the end of the song could be the end of the song. It could be we're in love. So that is. I love that version so much of on the roof. And then when it goes into the the second cut could be wearing love is just I mean, it's it's not great art. But it's great rock and very unpredictable. Just lets you know my take on just the up on the roof. Yeah. It's it's taking more than one tempo. It's really nice vocal arranging. It's not an insult to compare them to group like the association, which really had these soaring vocals. Yeah. And what of course, one of the net of checks of doing a song like up on the roof and exploring the sound of the voices is the sense that you're going up to the roof of the building. And that the sounds are changing as you get to the top and your relationship because the song is talking about getting away. But like you say, and you said, very poignantly, you're young guy. And you're like, I need my space. But I still want to feel connected, and the song really is about that in the engineering of the crying. Shame surgeon is also about stoning. I mean, you're right. The vocal arrangement got me from the get-go, and it wasn't. You know, I didn't appreciate the beach boys until my thirties. I gotta be honest. I knew the hits right but somewhere in my late twenties early thirties. Got a hold of the pet. Sounds box set with with just vocal tracks isolated. Oh. And I went, holy moly. This is amazing. Right. And it was at that point that I started paying attention to vocal bands like the mamas. And Papas associations and cryan shames and hearing things like this for the first time. And I mean, I had loved the song for for years before that. But the the harmonies just still grabbing, you know, twenty five years later, and the instrumentation is fantastic for all. I know it could be Chicago session musicians. It could be the cryan shames themselves. I don't know. But once those horns kick in man. Yeah. I mean, this becomes a this becomes kicking little record. There's one problem only with the cryan shames. And you know, what it is the fact that they drop the g in. The Jared R Y A N. Yeah. Misspelled it. Sorry. You know popular for the time. That's the only thing wrong with them. Then they're doing very well. It's is a group. I wasn't familiar with glad you shared it with me. And in many ways, all the other groups who covered up on the roof, you know, same emphasis. Yeah. Didn't get that soaring. Quality didn't go as far in the vocal arrangements. It's a terrific version. There are there are good versions out there. None of them are done by James Taylor. I mean, you compare that with this. It's transcendent. Yeah. It really is. It's just a it's just a good fun. You know, it's a sweet really if you think about you know, the way the songs go together. It's a sweet. So speaking of great voices, they happen to know that you have a soft spot for the turtles. I do someone Howard Kaelin and Mark Volmer. And so do I not only would they did with the turtles? But of course, when they were with Frank Zappa. Yes, they have songs where I am astounded by the quality of the blend of their voices. They do a song called hot and. Yeah. And it's very cheesy overly sexed Frank Zappa s kind of song about where we're stars. And we're getting girls hot, right? But if if that doesn't bother you, and hopefully, it doesn't their voices are. Astounding together. And so now you have chosen a song that I didn't know about coal love in the city. Yeah, it's deep album cut. It's called love in the city. And I discovered it on a on a rhino anthology in my late teens rhino at the time was the re release label for all the turtles, you know. The turtles hits, you know, happy together. And you know, everybody knows that song. Well, there were a handful of albums around that single of varying quality in very production and this cut Levin. The city is just it's very similar in its vocal in its complex vocal arrangement to what you just heard with the cryan shames. It's it's a fun kind of cynical rock and roll song of about love where you know, everything pretty much sucks, except when I get to my girl, and I can hold her. And then everything's all. Right. And she's awesome. And the the the release of joy that comes at the coda of the song and the arrangement of of the vocals as they progress through the coda, and the fade has knocked me out since the first time, I've heard it and here, I am, you know, middle aged man still transfixed by by the vocals of your middle age. I don't see any grey hair. Man. You look great, dude. It's amazing. What you can look tastic for radio. Oldest and cruelest joke in existence indeed and still works. So without further ado, or don't here's one of my favorite rock and roll bands of all time. I could talk about them all day. And probably will. Here's a turtles love in the city deep dish. Coral courts. Nineteen sixty nine offi album, turtle soup white whale records. The turtles love in the city and the hair. My arms is standing again. Which is always a good sign that that it's a damn good record. And I love it. There's a lot. There's a lot in there. The producer of that album, by the way. Yeah. Ray davies's? Oh, really? Yep. Kings the last turtle studio album. Before the break up of the band love in the city chartered at number ninety one didn't really make it that high. But still, you know, broke the top hundred and that drumming drumming just grab them in. Yes is very propose. Now. I wanna post something to you. Do you see the connection between your choices of crying shames up on the roof and the turtles love in the city 'cause we've kind of talked and there is actually a connection in terms of the sonic quality of the songs and the themes ABI of being in physical space. Okay. Homey on the roof and love in the city and being within a large space. So the production has has kind of vocal facts. Right. That are a little distant and a little echoey that suggests space. So you're up on the roof of a building or your within a city. And you know, obviously, the turtles have songs where you know. Those guys vocals are much more present. There's something about this. That's almost wall of sound. Yes. That that. No. We're gonna miss the horns in and the vocals are going to be down a little bit. You're gonna hear them. But it's going to be an interesting, and I don't mean this an detrimental way in a wash of sound. Oh, you're absolutely right. I think that's purely intentional. There's there's in that in that code that. I love so much. If you listen, very carefully. There's a trumpet like Hugh Masekela super high trumpet. Yep. You know, coming through kind of kind of piercing, those vocals right with a single note that the guys have to stop insta- Cotto with their with their vocals, right? And it just ties the whole thing together. They're they're choosing moments to to mix and other things just for a moment, almost as if did I hear that almost was that a military on in Oregon, you know, that sort of act, and and it's it's really intriguing because. You know, if you do if you do it at a different time, it's it's happy together. But this is. And that point that's fine. Yeah. There's nothing wrong. That's a great great song. But the way that it's engineered and produced is very different from this. And it's really great to kind of experience it and say those are the same to voices in same two guys who's who's abilities vocally of always taken me. But well, this this is a different approach. This is its spatial. You get what I'm saying? Yes. It's it's giving you a different sense of space in terms of what the song is about. And I think that's kind of interesting fascinating. Thank you for that. For that insight. No, don't know your own mind. You need me to tell you what you're thinking. That's what you're thinking. What an interesting segue into our next cut. Well, I and I'll tell you exactly while you pick the next cut, even though I'm probably wrong this next cut to me is very poetic. And a lot of lyrics to me are very straight ahead. Specially love lyrics blues lyrics. This is I'm gonna ask you about this ban because I don't know much about mama's pride. But this is a blues rock band that. I'm not familiar with. But, you know, talk a bit about the the lyrics, which aren't street ahead in terms of talking about sadness and emotion. They're very poetic. And there are a little off kilter. I wonder if that interested you or if there was something else that no question. This is the signature song by Saint Louis band called mama's pride and they put out a handful albums. I've spoken with with Pat list in the. Guy that wrote the song. And he said he wrote it while waiting for a bus in studio city, realizing that he was out of money and all on and at the time that we have this conversation actually lived in studio city, and I have been fascinated by the song since I heard it. It is. It is a powerful powerful broken hearts on that where everything in it is off kilter everything in it is is broken everything in it is sad. But it is a rock song. If you grab nothing out of it, the baseline throughout is something that you can hold onto even if you can't relate to it. But but the lyrics are incredibly poetic and in capture late what it's like to have an unexpectedly, broken heart. And I've experienced that. I'm not gonna lie and be broke while you have broken heart. Apparently even worse. Got no woman in ain't got no money. No money. And you know, they go together. Money is Honey as they say my time like you it up. Okay. So. The pride of Saint Louis. Mama's pride. This is Saint Louis. No this song. My friends know this song. Here's blue missed on the courts radio hour. Number. I don't know if you've ever been in a relationship where you've been so disappointed and betrayed that. When you think of the person that you are with you can't even speak because your mind, literally locks at the the evil that was there, and I'm certain beyond a shadow of doubt, the person whom I am speaking that this song reflects to me is not listening to this show. But yes, I have I have felt. So her that I could not speak when I think of a particular person and using that phrase is not typical of rock and roll lyrics at all. No, you know, you broke my heart or you. You made me sad. You left me when I was down, but being unable to speak as choice for Lear IX is very very powerful, especially for for literate people like like poet to write lyrics, or you know, writers like, you are are, you know, comedians like me who make a living with words. Yeah. To encounter something that literally use renders you speechless. Yes, is f- powerful the guy, and it's not just because he's from Saint Louis most people from Saint Louis do rock and roll. I'm sure very talented. You've heard of Chuck Berry. No play. You might like I told you Nadine is sung that kills me. By check berry that anyway. This guy has vocal chops guy when he wails in a blues e way, it jumps off the record and hits you so I'm gonna say something that's probably going to annoy people who love southern rock and roll. This guy should have been the lead singer for the Allman brothers. This guy has the intensity the poetic quality and the technical prowess to have been a great lead singer for a more popular band. And God knows the Allman brothers live at Fillmore east sold zillions of copies. They never had a good lead singer. That's guys got it. And he's also good song. Right. That's that's an excellent point. I think the musicianship in the band is pretty solid to these guys should have been bigger. I mean, I don't know. Why are you speedwagon won the the lottery, but but these guys should have been huge now to be fair? There's a follow up song to this that when I play for myself. I will play them in hand. And it's called can I call you a cab, and it starts out kind of smooth and blues my baby will small, and she told me, and you know. Says she's gonna leave and he's like, well, if that's how you feel then there's only one thing I gotta say temple picks up. Can help you pack your bags is it that cheerful Intel. Oh, yeah. It's beautiful here. Let me help you. Let me throw your bags down the hallway and help you which I've also felt yeah. Let me let me throw you down the stairs. That's that's darkly amusing. But but blue missed, you know, it's it's great blues. Rock, you know. And here's the thing blues music. It's hard to do anything new with it's because of its structure because of it's because of a long history because of the limitations of what blues is it's hard to do anything new or anything that leaps out at you. And these guys to their credit have done, so and and bills, and you don't mind, you don't mind the extended ending the song. It's building on the heartache and it's reflective of the heartache. Yeah. It absolutely is. I mean, you don't mind that that Faizy synthesizer in there either. You know, you're like I can forgive that. But the rest of the song just grabs you by the Pels. I mean, the lyrics are I think they're even more appropriate for heartbreak than like positively fourth street. You know, when you're chewing somebody out just for being shitty human beings. And I think I think this is far more poetic than even doing wrote. Oh, wait till he finds out. I'm gonna talk to him personally to our. What? You want to be on on the deep dish radio show. Be my. Yeah. Yeah. You can have you can have your moment. Look, you know, even the greatest allegience have songs that aren't as powerful as others. And even the most obscure groups as we've learned from deep dish and coral courts, the groups that you you guys have never heard of that. I've never heard of or even I've never heard we bounce off each other we go. That's great. I who why have then you investigate. Maybe there's a couple of their songs that get you. Or maybe it's the knickerbockers where they had one song that was worth a damn and the rest you can pretty much throw away. Yeah. But that but for blues rock, that's right up there in the pantheon nicely done. Thank you. I kind of like the skip the next the next on the list. Yes. Well, if you wanna do that, then we're going to go to a group recall Harum. Yes, who many people say wrote one of the greatest lyrics in the history of rock and roll music with wider, shade of pale. And you have decided that you wanna play an instrumental backing track. I do and I'll tell you why the the lyrics to whiter shade of pale are, absolutely brilliant. They're no question about it. And everyone knows them. People. Don't always understand them. They're they're American pie level subject to Cretaceous. Right. But everybody knows one of sixteen vessel virgins. You know? And everybody knows the lyrics, but what is overlooked by those incredible vocals and really interesting lyrics is the musicianship of the guys in pro-career. Yeah. So I have stripped out the vocals, oh, you did. This wasn't released. It was actually released. Yeah. So I I'm presenting the the backing track you can hear it buried deep in the mix. But this is legitimately released by pro Clara for purposes of presentation. I am presenting it with the vocal stripped out. I've ever heard this. Prior to you turning me onto it. So it is it is an amazing piece of music, you know, whiter shade of pale. But you need to hear it without the vocals because it is it is powerful. So i'm. Signed that those musicians get their do just for the music right on men. Well, first of all there's nothing better than the keyboards in just about any rock and roll song with these are are I say a lot, but it's transcend here is here's profile. That's the track. Right. So that's what happens in the studio. When there's when there's fade out. I never noticed the tack hammer piano. No. I was as it was playing. You saw me. I don't know. If you read my lips. But I went Pia. No. Yeah. Like I'd never heard that right in the mix. You know, why is it okay? For classical composer to do variations on the theme over and over again. And and for us to not here in what is considered a classic rock song a wider shade of pale. Yes. All the variations of the Oregon line for it. Because when you listen to it without the singing, you realize he's constantly finding new ways. He's not right eating what he's doing. Right. Each time. But it's a different approach every time through all ironically, allegedly based on jazz box era G string. That's right. Well, you know, we've talked about, you know, Emerson we've talked about you know, other groups that have been classically influenced. And you know, what there there's a reason that that attracted them, you know, in the first place they rarely have done it over and over and over again on on the drive in here. I'm listening to the Westside story soundtrack. Okay. You know? And I'm thinking America, you know, Sondheim and burns all that. And I'm thinking why did keep Emerson love this so much and I realized for its time in the early sixties. It was revolutionary not only the quality the dance, but to have a piece of music. That's that lively saying how screwed up and how wonderful America is at the same breath. You couldn't get away with that in popular music in nineteen. Gene. Whatever in the middle Camelot. Yeah. In the middle of JFK's Cam lot. You know? I think I go back to San Juan. I know a you can get on you know, that kind of right sort of back and forth. So, you know, absolutely perfect sense that they would be influenced by bar, and there were other people who also, you know, took classical music beside you know, prog rockers like Emerson lake and Palmer or or which wished it around. Right. Or are pro Clara one of the original prog rock man's. I just I'd love the instrumentation instrumentalization is are they really though. That's that's my question to you. I always I was founded I I will admit hard to categorize pro-coal Harum, but they didn't strike me as progressive rock music. The wasn't as complex and as that they were clean jazzy blues. Rock they were just kind of some melding of all those things. Maybe it doesn't really matter. What you call? The moody blues without pomposity. Beating of my moody blues. I'm going to so far as to say that at least a third of their music was terrific. You know, what that doesn't sound like, you know, damning faint craze. I know it sounds like, but but it's great but back to your your impulse. Which is let's hear the subtleties in the variations right of what they did unwired or shade of pale that you're not gonna hear because the lyrics are great and the vocals, very present. And wow, miss that. You've heard this hundred thousand times, you know, it really just becomes a complete package. If you never hear derivation, you never hear live. You know, I've never seen procra- Hera live. And I would imagine most people who are familiar with whiter shade of pale, accept it. As just this this package that you, you know, presented as a song. And you never really go. Oh, there's a little more to it than that. Because the mix really good on the final final thing. And if you if you strip it out. And you remove it from being a wall of sound. I'm not taking away from the vocals because their powerful wonderful vocals, and he handles it. Capably lyrics are fantastic there. No question. The lyrics. Fantastic. There's something just interesting about going. I never looked at it that way how often do we talk about? Okay. Look, we're gonna hear the acapella version of this Beatles album, or you know, as a big fan of of yeses song, leave it. I think it was off nine oh one to five. Yeah. And when you hear it off cappella and what Trevor Ray been did. It's even more astounding. Yes. Great to bring in those sledgehammer, echoey, drums, and all that stuff. But when you hear just their voices together, it's a standing and sometimes you need to do that to appreciate all the production and work there starting I think in the mid nineties. There was a trend to start releasing albums with with stripped out tracks you hear the vocal track. Just the piano tracker, whatever. And if you haven't heard pet sounds in that format not only do you get to hear what amazing musicians the wrecking crew were. But the harmonies that those five or six guys together any given time will melt your ears. There's so whether you love the beach boys are hate, the beach, boys, or whatever, you can appreciate the tr-. Medicine out of talent that went into that single album. There were rumors that Rundgren what's going to make a CD ROM of something anything where you could make your own mix and track. What a great idea it really is. Or they should at least build software. We could play anything through it and remix it when that'd be fun. Yes. Yes. Would you'd have to have the master tracks. I mean, I would love to hear just you know, sometimes I would love to hear just Paul's track on rubber soul revolver or just John's tracks on rubber soul. Revolver just to just to hear what those guys were doing. Listen, you know, you know, that I'm big Jimmy fan. So you know in having written the book. So there was I guess behind the music VH one or one of those kinds of docs. And so there's this guy very humorous guy named Mike Finnigan who's a keyboardist any talks about being brought in for rainy day, you know? And he says, you know, they just said, you know, Jimmy said, hey, man, just do something like this. And and you know, I just I didn't know I was just honored that even asked me in. And you got to hear him play the Oregon underneath you know, that incredible wa wa the Jimmy does on the song. Right. And then you, you know, what I love about a lot of these documentaries. Special. They did went on Pink Floyd to dark side of the moon is your at the desk at the one with Alan Parsons at the desk where he's going through individual here. Here's here's the girls. You know? The backup singers that Roger waters was kind of obscuring. And you listen to them you. Oh my God. You know? So it goes both ways. Sometimes you wanna hear just the vocals, and sometimes you just wanna hear as with pro hair is just the music transitioning to the next cut, which where there's classical influences in all kinds of rock and roll. I wanna play the next without introducing it. I don't wanna spoil the spooky. Yeah. I don't wanna spoil the the the the presenter the ban seven caller, if you can guess the classical musician. This is based on you, get fried chicken. I can't even top that. Let's go. No, what are the chances that anyone in the listening audience thought? Oh, that's Sergio Leoni from talion spaghetti western soundtrack, right or. Yeah. LB Albion's audio in g minor a fine classical piece that I think all deep dish listeners are familiar with. I'll I'll be Nonni Albany. I'll be damned Dhabi dog on which is another my I shouldn't known that man. My classical music knowledge has has decreased tremendously let's really blow their minds who did it that was the doors. No that was not that that was Robby Krieger, and and Raymond's Eric performing a discarded track for the the post Jim Morrison collection of poetry. Yeah. I'd never heard that. And I thank you for sharing. It. It's not that. I've never listened to I'll be Nonni Albany, and it I certainly listened to plenty of doors. Sure. But the thing is that again, I've said this before the exposure of people who never listened to a type of music to that kind of music by a pop group can't be underestimated. And it makes perfect sense. You know for the doors because they expose people to Brechin vile show me the way to the next whiskey bar. And it's a great version. You know, I mean, I've I've listened to the, you know, original soundtracks lot, Elaine. Yeah. And all those guys I love Jim Morrison's version of that song. So then hopefully, the listener goes, wow, you know, Berthold brick Kurt vile who are these guy. I don't know. Anything about these guys, you know, Threepenny opera. Wow. You know, there's an intensity to that that I can really relate to even though they were writing forty fifty years ago. And that's the thing about what I wanted to put together. It's just you know, listen to the skill listen to the musicianship of of these guys out of their element. You know? That's why played whiter shade of pale the way that I did. That's why this because you know, these these guys get a bad rap. I have heard other musicians that that I respect members of the birds who have said, I don't care for the doors because those guys can't swing and swing. That's that's jazz term you should never use as a rock group, especially or a or a blues rock group. But for. For as jazzy as they were for. I as tuned in as those three guys were musically to each other, the musicians in the, you know. Chops man, of course, they had shops. And you know, only Lionel Hampton or somebody like a man those guys they don't just they just don't swing break. I mean Jesus Christ. When did when did the birds ever investigate, you know, Berthold Brecht or classical music, you know, they they get big thumbs up for, you know, eight miles high. It's a classic of psychedelic music. But you know, that's that is unacceptable. Unacceptable to me. And I'm so glad that you shared AVI known as adagio by these guys and murdered the murder the title. But no, no, it's it's one of them. Like, I said, Tim, I never heard it before. And that's the other thing is spaghetti western thing. But also, let's not forget the doors Spanish caravan. Robby. Krieger does some amazing will make oh style guitar somewhere in here. I have a copy of Morrison hotel signed by Robbie how great is that? He was he couldn't have been nicer. But, but then you know, would that song? Yeah. Okay. Wow. You know, guitar Flamenco style picking. But then it goes into outer space, and there's processing so it's wonderful melding. Whereas this is this is not straight ahead classical. It's it's the glitz Sandoz on guitar saying, okay? There's something for you once little electrified. But we're also going to honor the original composer. I love it. I do too. Now. You've heard an American prayer, right? The post after Jim died guys got together and found tapes of gym reading his poetry and put music behind it. And I think that should be released as an instrumental album as well. I think there's a lot of good music. So yeah. I'm a big fan of people who write poetry recited. And then they connect with somebody who gets what they're doing and gets the feel of and does not necessarily something very composed. But almost a punctuation I think I talked to you before jet Carro AC. Yeah. And Zoot SIMS on sax with some of Carrow X poetry, which just takes it to a whole other level. Everything is music, man. Speaking of taking things out of their initial context, one of my favorite bands. I have not made a secret about it is the is zombies. Right. British invasion band that? I think never really got there. Do they they had a grand total of three albums their third album odyssey and oracle. I think ranks up with sergeant pepper and pet sounds as some of the greatest music ever ever ever recorded. But they did have some big hits that you chats. No question about it. I don't think they were as prolific as say some of the some of the other bands. You know, if the Dave Clark five can get into the rock and roll. These guys should differ. And one of their early hits a son called she's not there. I think everybody who listened to the show pretty much ought to know. Right. Well, post zombies this was re recorded by by rod Arjun the. Defacto leader of the band, and Colin bluestone, the vocalist for the for the Samis exclusive vocalist, and for whatever reason it was chosen to be recorded in in Italian, and I wanna play Italian version because it takes out of the context of the song that you've heard hundred thousand times, and you really hear them you hear the musicianship. You hear the power of the tonality of the lyrics, even if you can't understand the lyrics themselves. You know? And so I to take it out of that context. Now, I played this for you, awhile back, and and blow your mind a little he is not exaggerating played it for me. And I just salivated like Pavlov's dog. I went all my God. I mean, I've heard the German Beatles songs, and I've heard other people singing in French from English, but you guys are in for treat this. Tremendous ver-. It's not a clever novelty knock off on. She's not there it. It is wonderful magnificent. Two. On. Okay. He'll fatty. Don. Three. Appearance. Sick on you. So there's a little surprise for you little ROY. You blew my mind reconstituted. Okay. So we had the theme to the monkeys in Italian Italian. It's a whole different world from reconstituting reimagining does arby's and she's not there. And when you I played it for me, I thought, oh, this is kind of invented, you know, fuzz guitar, and you know, the baselines different nice string. Then the flute comes in the processing. And I was just swept away was like, I don't know where you're taking me. But I'm following you. I'm not expecting it to sound like the English language version at all. Yeah. Lad, it doesn't. And then you check the POS that with the Monkees theme, which is basically the original backing track. Just with translated lyrics, Saint vocalist who probably spoke it phonetically. Yeah. But you know, the Monkees theme in Italian exists as a result of federal law in Italy that said any TV show that. Programmed broadcast in Italy had to be a hundred percent Italian. There's nothing wrong with literally using the same tracks. And then singing another language. I was fascinated as a kid when I heard the Beatles. Come give me diner. Ho, or whatever, you know. See? Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Exactly. Those were were great fun, and they hearken back to win those guys played Hamburg and all that. And it was it was totally mind blowing for us. But what does ambi- of done there is and Collins vocal just completely reconstituted? Perfect word for the for the entire thing. Literally reimagined hit and jazzed it up made a really sonically interesting. There's a really good argument that his the intensity and the emotion in his talion vocal is actually better. I think so and what a great opportunity for people fans of group to actually not only hear the music taken different direction. But to get that quality of of emotionality singing, you know, I just thought of it that there's a few years in between the single the English English language single and the Italian reimagined. Yeah. And I think it shows the quick maturation of of the artists involved. You know that they have have evolve. As a band, they've evolved as a creative force they've evolved as humans and matured as humans, and so they're able to approach a song. They did five six years earlier with different is literally a different language and create something brand new, and that's really the purpose of coral courts radio hours to give you something that you've never heard before. Or maybe here's something that you have heard a hundred thousand times differently take it out of its context. And really listen to it as as the work of art that it is. And so for folks, Chem knapsack, and and at Brad Schreiber, and any of the other guests that have been here with music or even my music. Listen to it for what it is. And I can't thank you enough for turning me onto these musics. I never would have been aware of there's just so much out there vice versa. That's what I love about it.

Cats come up with me. On this episode of citizen critic, the doors Oliver Stone's epic. About Jim Morrison is rough. One. Reviewer Imagines Morris on twitter and hosting a podcast. Of all the. Things. And a man loses his cool after losing his phone at the whisky, a go go. Pretty pretentious there Jim. This is citizen critic. I might need to ensure the breeze more when I say breathe a little more like fucking fishnet like. This amount of sweaters just from sitting here. If you can say humid, Oh, it is when I tell you it is at least one hundred and fourteen in this room right now. I am I am not kidding. I'm good. I'm ready to go to the doors man. At some point start hallucinating from pureed exhaustion. It'll be like your trip in the Desert Oh. Yeah, the summer solstice Peyot, Tae. Welcome to yet another episode of citizen critic, the PODCAST, I'm Scott Janet's and I'm Greg Comic Steamy Greg Calmly. The Blake babies have a song called Steamy Greg Oh. No, that's that's me, too. Yeah great today we're talking about. The Oliver Stone Film the door we are I watched it for the first time in probably twenty years. Doesn't hold up I began to question whether it was up to begin with for me I. Remember Liking the movie I remember thinking. That was cool. Yeah Jim Morrison that was. That's rock and roll. It didn't take much for me though because I was a teenager with. Fantasies of Rockstar Tim, so yeah, you know that you have this spectacle on the excitement of all these concerts from whatever depicted in the film. And, so yeah I was I was going to be into that. Was Tailor made for me. And that's kind of what I thought. I was GONNA be into and it was just more. All of this bad elements of like a rockstar without any of the good redeeming qualities for the most part. I like the doors despite Jim Morrison. Yeah. Yeah absolutely he's a good singer even. Really good voice. Absolutely, he's got a unique style. uh-huh As they say, in Wayne's world two. He's a crooner in the rock and roll. I mean I believe that that's true. This movie was such a cultural touchstone that part of the premise. Of Wayne's world two. Is based on his base. Absolutely absolutely. It was funny because watching it again as watch the other day and I'm watching that opening scene where it's the young like the six year old Jim Morrison. and His dad's his mom, just like look away. Jim Now and imagine if that six year old kid was like the Adult Jim Morrison is, Dad would have kicked the car. Like. It's all just a dream on the quixote is. What are you talking, kid? Imagine. And you imagine somebody taking you to the desert to have a peyote trip and they're just talking in your ear the whole time bullshitting. Honestly I feel like dude. Did you bring anything to drink I am so thirsty and parched I brought my words for you to drink. Red The snake. Somebody's fucking. You're on a peyote trip. This guy's whispering to you about a gigantic snake. Like where's that snake park because I want to get back to la like now, man. I watched it last night, and this is the this is one of the worst movies I've seen in. Five years. Yeah, yeah, of course, it's like I will start it and immediately. I was watching that scene with him driving down the highway with his family. Yeah, the Oh like the opening scene and. My wife was getting ready to go to bed. I just started laughing like this is not a good move. And then looked at the running time I was like Oh. My God, yeah, that's what I told you. I was like to have ours went out. And it's supposed to sort of like be the premise kind of for the rest of his life. It's such a touchtone form. He well at least in the film and the film right and it's. What you didn't having to do with it. You drove by the accident. And that's you know that that moment where Raymond's Eric is looking at them on the stage and he's dancing with the native American yeah yeah plagued ghost. Like. What is? that is LSD the dreaded lesage. My God. One of my favorite scenes on the rewatch was when he's showing his student film at Ucla and Oliver Stone is professor and the film ends and was like. What do you think and the? Guy That says pretty pretentious there. Jim That's the professor said. He's right. It's one hundred percents. Of course. It's completely pretentious. Bullshit Bullshit I mean this movie is bullshit and I don't know what the point is. Movie is like. It seems to me on a face reading to exist to make fun of. This person and tell us all how awful he was. You know I don't think I, think Oliver Stone is like truly enamored I think he was kind of a fan boy i. think so too and yet I looked at the movie. was like it seems to me now that he's. This is a you know, yeah. But I think that he thought. All those things were kind of like a little bit cool I. Don't Know Yeah I just sort of watch the movie and I'm like what am I saw Dick? That guy was like I agree with what you're saying. Hundred religious would do that to meg. Ryan, who the hell we set fire to the closet with their locked in it. It did attempted murder brother. It is I. Don't care what snake you're not here and then the next scene there together. She's fucking. Apologizing to him yeah. That's abusive relationship. Yeah, but it's not portrayed as such I mean. Every scene is in it sort of abusive. This is my problem with the movie like it seems like it's a critique of him right at the same time. You know that it's not really yeah. It's a critique because it shows this horrifying behavior in its own subtle way. It's a critique of Oliver Stone. Is. Oliver pretentious their Oliver. There's so much I mean there's just so much that could have been cut from the movie The peyote seeing itself I. was like I feel like I've been watching this senior two and a half hours so long. I just I realized watching this I was like Oh this. There's a whole episode of entourage with Kevin Dillon based on this I did like the Kevin. Dillon in there is the drummer. Yeah, Entourage! The worst shows I've watched all the way through more than. Yes, YEP! People talk about guilty pleasures, and you're just like that. It's not a guilty pleasure. To one hundred percent, you should feel guilty for watching entourage. I have lower self esteem because I. Continued to watch entourage and the movie Yeah Yeah, I watched the movie I. Just Finished Deep Therapy because our benefactor and all around great guy Jake Brennan once said that I was the turtle the group and it was meant to be a fucking compliment. Meant to be an insult. I don't know what it was but it. Hurt deeply. That hurt me deeply and I was like e. I can't ahead on our. Head on that one, and still when he said you were turtle housing. Act I don't know if I'm going to recover from the world wealth in the world. fucking brutal. Well, let's do our feature presentation. Today Oliver Stone's The doors man. Fishermen. Fifty seven percent on rotten tomatoes. Couple of quick Quick hit professional reviews here these are major reviewers from from major publications. Yeah J..

You GotTa step game. Just say you didn't like it. You don't even have to leave words just be like one-star like volumes. Do the. Bloating! Richard Schickel of Time magazine Dick Shaquille said Dick Struggle. That's it that would be. That would be a good band name day where the Knicks shackles. Dick chagall says the film really proves only that Jim was a bad drunk and worse friend. That Inouye was his life exemplary. Not True though come on. Like the verge. Of, his life was exemplary. He put a lot of albums in a short amount of time that we're pretty good. He had some. some hits his career. Right, but that's part of his successful but his life. Knows like he died at twenty seven. He did part of the twenty seven club which you can hear about on Jake Brennan's. The twenty seven club. And sponsored content. Karen James From The New York, Times says it is made by a Morrison Groupie for other groupies film that leaves the rest of us locked outside, wondering what the fuss is about. Pretty dead on Eiger because we were. Just talking about like olive Oliver Stone is a huge doors fan. And we watched this movie and we're like, is he because I just portrayed Jim Morrison. Probably as Jim Morrison actually was, but it's not. It's a good point if if you already love well, it didn't work on you, but I feel like. If you're into the doors like super hard. you, can you you're you're. You might have come out of this thing it and thinking he was awesome. If anyone walked over to me at a party in high school or college with a little notebook, right right in the kitchen, I'd be right in the other room.

She says I'm not sure how an Oliver Stone movie with such an amazing cast that included Val kilmer parentheses strutting around in great leather pants, giving an impressive performance as Morrison. Albums! Great Leather Pants. He does look great. Absolute really well. Yeah, I killed performances great. Yeah, the the movie is poorly. And thus the performance is limited. US. Kilmer is always great and does the best he could in this movie. I'm not sure how it could be this grading nonsensical I get that it's supposed to be trippy, but Jesus at a running time of almost two and a half hours. That gets old real quick. Agreed? I was less than impressed for having this on my watch list for twenty years. But that is some friends should have told you. This is on your watch. Let's for twenty years nearly wasn't a priority Oh. How good must've that felt to cross this off to watch? Twenty years. Earlier view I personally feel relieved to have watched the doors for the last time in my life. Vive right. I'm not going to promise that, but. Never watched it again. I'll see. I'll do where things where it's like I wanna see that scene where he stalks meg. Ryan, again like I wanna see that little neighborhood. So if it's on, I'll be like. Is it before after this you know? Yeah, it does not preclude me flipping around and leaving it on for a couple minutes. We would never WANNA. Gang Leuven in that right now. It's hard to imagine. Oh, it is unbelievably ten twenty years from now if I'm still around. Maybe you're still stock and girls on love, street. Even that's on which is a nice little song. The lyrics serve fucking dumb fucking words gay over there. He's up there. And not every one of his lyrics terrible vocally. He was a lot better than then like I feel like. Yeah, and and certainly as a poet anyone the things that he was a great poet is yeah. It doesn't actually like poetry. There's very few poets that I can think of who were a great songwriters at a and you can see the poetry. You got your Bob Dylan's. You got your Emily Dickinson and fan. Back Today Emily Dickenson in the Dick shikles. Good love their first couple of records. Dickinson and the DICK SHACKLES! Some young female singer wants to put a great band together. Go it, please well. Course Patti Smith was the one that I can think of Leonard Cohen Patti Smith Yeah Yeah Lou Reed Little Bit. Yeah yes. Yes, certainly, there's a Lou Reed drop in and this movie when he goes to see. What's. Anywhere Hall wedding there's. There's like in the hallway. It's like he walked. They kind of look at each other. Yeah, yeah, I wondered who that was supposed to be. Yeah, anyone that scene. It's just like Oh God. That Crispin Glover's impression. Hall is just it's rough. It's too much. I. Had this phone done? I think. Eighty gave it to me. I was like if I was ever at this party I. You know not that I would ever be at a party like that. We're invited to a party like that I would clamor to get into a party like that and be there. Just be like this awful, and when men's Eric says these people are Vampires. I'm like. They are fucking. True would this is horrible. I always got to myself. This up I was like you're the Morrison. I'm the fucking men's Eric. This is what this film Tommy. Myself I'M A I'M A. I'm a robby Krieger. I think I aspire to be a robby Krieger I. GO along to get along. Yeah, yeah, it's true. Like I don't know whatever it's just a word girl. We can't get much better. There is a straight up Ed Sullivan impression in the middle this movie. That guy is an Ed Sullivan impersonator. That right I mean obviously it was I looked at its credits, and he's only Ed Sullivan in other. It's like what is the point of this like cartoon character Ed Sullivan in the middle of his movie. It was a little crazy and then the square producer you know like. Cool. Right groove girl. We can't get much better. Narrow dislike whatever if you're ever like the tour manager on that or you were like the person representing the band in that moment in that scene backstage, you were like now. This is going to go go. Well. I would have objected more as a band member to just the fucking hanging doors all over the. I thought thought that. This is so fucking Hokey I was like the doors of your mind, you know these are just door knows front doors. That's the name of the band. It's an actual actual doors. Designers they don't say a fucking thing about that. No, they could care less about that. As as a songwriter, myself I'd be like I understand. It's television. I can't talk about drug use or But I would have been like. Get these fucking doors. Yeah! We'll play to a white back rat. Fleas ride the snake through this lovely, Victorian front door with a handed brass knocker. The fuck. Braces right all of a sudden you take the complete metaphor out of the bed. Your endear songs are entirely based on similar metaphor. You have the most fucking literal back. To scream higher into the into the step through the doors of perception into fabulous. A three and a half star review from superior night. I think this might be Jim Morrison. From the grave suspicion on a steed haunts you in your dreams. Starts off with a quote from Lester bangs. Not Lester bangs in real life, but Lester bangs from almost famous because it says. Lester bangs parentheses almost famous. Oh there. You go quote. Jim Morrison is a drunken buffoon posing as a poet. End Quote you just know if Jim Morrison was live today or sometime in the last decade he'd be an annoying fuck on twitter. One thousand. Is that right? Yes, yeah, a flat earth for sure. Promoting some all natural rabbit pellet that humans can eat, too. There's like. But? It's a hundred percent true I think. You'd have like thirty six million followers and would tweet about trump's space force needed to get to the moon asap. To save all the crater children. This is all checking out as far as I'm concerned. I was reading this I was like. What? would be him completely absolutely. He would him and Scott Bail would be going rallies together. Just Morrison would be fat to. He already was like Marlon Brando Fat, and he'd have a podcast where his producer would have to edit out all the heavy breathing. Hey, Whoa, I mean honestly. Easy. That's pretty much what you do for me. That one little. Cut a little close to the bone. Yeah, that had hits home. His podcast would be called Morrison on Morrison. It would just be him talking to himself as he gazes into a mirror. Yeah, again that happened in the movie. That was the framing device of the movie basically. Morrison man it was. Again I I would like it if somebody would take another if there's another movie about Jim Morrison. That somebody chooses to do. That maybe softens the edges. A little I'd love to see it. I think we need a gritty reboot. Of, this one is not rated not rated not ready to Canada, go through the ever just abandoned the rating system. Bill Ryan Says Dialogue and movie quote, so you really going to move to Paris and quote me quote. Oh. Thank, God. He's almost dead. That is that is not? He's not allowed in that. God He's almost done. Yeah me too I was. Getting to the end. Moving on, Diam DB four out ten. All the lyrics in the world could not save this movie by Andrew Butler one This is not a good movie. I watched this film upon its release, and as a young man, and enjoyed a look at the rock star lifestyle at portrayed. Having watched it recently I was surprised at how bad the script actually is. As we're we did I write this and you might. Describe. Every word that comes out of Kilmer's mouth is a regurgitated doors lyric who speaks in poetry. Morrison that's speak simple host poetry. Thing we learned. It's true that a lot of the dialogue in this movie. is a reference to a lyric of those, which makes it completely insufferable. Delegates makes the character of Jim Morrison. There's no depth to him at all other than the lyrics which I always kinda rolled, my eyes hat and it's just like Oh. That's possess speaking. That's just speaking Tony assist. He's actually speaking through so many doors songs I do not think Morrison was such a fool as shown. There is also the fact that stone uses uses the doors as an outlet for his imagination. You know that's kind of its job as a movie director. That's his right as sector I guess. He uses this film as an outlet for his imagination said that. The concept that Patricia Kinealy chased after Morrison as early as nineteen, sixty seven is false. That's the woman. Oh! Okay. They did not actually meet until sixty nine. Oh, so boy to me. There's a good movie. If they had accurately portrayed the time in which he met his mistress. I am a stickler for dates man. I am a historian at heart. For crying, out loud. This. Reviewer had me you I was with you until. The middle of this review. There is much more that the viewer should know about this movie, and it should be researched before mentioning what a great film this is. Wow that that was a a big drop off that review in all of a sudden it. You turn a little bit. You turn it into Jim Morrison. Will Ferrell's impression of Robert Goulet. how many parties were stopped by his fucking nonsense a goal? And nightmare hang around. Yeah, and imagine like you're at a party in this fucking twenty five year old shows up, and it's just thinks that he's the most important human being the word. Spoken word and jet starts going off everybody coming into this dog and bedroom. The show was about to begin. I I would have been like I'll be right back I'm. GonNa get water. This is a great buddy. What's going on in his bedroom back? School Scarves draped over some lamps Oh nope back. Sound great man you kill guy gotta go. Oh My. Bathroom but I love my good time in another. I left, not being in the middle of someone else's nightmare. Continue on with your word. Keep going. I'll be right back. Is that your snake park out. Pretty cool man. I can walk away. I need to get out and I. GOT MY VW Bug. I need to get around your snake. I can't get around it seven mile. You should get some cones or some dry way. Players for that thing man. This is too much.

The consternation of the families of anybody else buried in that cemetery constant vandalism. Yeah, and which? You know the movie kind of highlights. These are big fans of. Next? By Charlotte Oh. Hey Cemetery or dumping ground. It's just a different way to call a cemetery. It's you know if you want to be crass about it didn't. Is But. People want to be nice. It'd be like. Oh, it's the seminary toilet or shit bucket. And call it a toilet because we're trying to make it sound better, but you can call. When visiting Perilla, Shays, I was focused on mainly visiting the grave of my beloved Jim Morrison who was an inspiration to me as I grew up, but I found myself absolutely devastated to find his grave amongst many others in utter disgrace. Surrounding, his grave was bottles of alcohol cigarettes, butts and litter left to the mercy of the elements. I love the that she opens up the possibility that it's other people's families doing that. The people going to see more. Who could have done this this? Is it you must do though. If they had known the Jim. Morrison was buried here. They never would have done this. Your man, what a piece of Shit! You must be for your fan community to desecrate your grave with regularity. And that'll your gave, but like everyone around like just yes, you're. Art Causes People to disregard dignity of the dead right. You did it. You broke on through. The thing that makes us human, we bury their dead. We mourn our loved ones. You broke that. Jim Morrison. Unfortunately, this is a recurring theme throughout the cemetery. To console my inner teenagers, rage at her idol grave, being trialed I ventured around the cemetery in home of filing grades. Kicking over to. Will. Magazine Business What am? I ventured around the cemetery. In hope of finding any more. My inspirations I was surprised to find many including Oscar Wilde you just be off Perot. To any who are considering making the trip to parallel. Please be aware. That you may find sites that will make you lose faith in humanity. For example when visiting the grave of Jim, Morrison I stumbled across three youths. Did, you say. which I can only describe as hoodlums sat on a gravestone, gazing witless Lee at the gravestone hoodlums, hoodlums looms. Hoodlums, do you know they'd go and like visit gravesites ninety out to pay their respects at a gravesite. It's like a fifty s, Greece or gang of hoodlums. They're like. Respect excess. Respects. Hoods not only were they showing utter disrespect. They were also listening to the doors as if they were alive when the songs came out fake fanalert. Like the doors. Born never forget when somebody called me up for listening to Beethoven. The fuck you know about Beethoven. Weren't around. There? Overall I would recommend you. visit pair Lushes, but please prepare yourself for disappointment in vast amounts such as you went to a cemetery. What sort of carnival you're expecting? It's going to happen when you walk into a cemetery, yeah! Like. You think you know all of a sudden. The ghost like Harry Potter style like nearly headless Jim. Morrison is going gonNA pop up grave. Do a number for you. It's a cemetery. Two more plays welcome. Did you Morrison World where we recreated with incredible detail and accuracy the? World. Jim, Morrison lived in. I'll look honey. It's mini version of where Pamela Courson live. Love Street look it's Love Street. It's like dying on Allie of Paris. I was thinking. It's a small world. Love Street on this weird. Puppets, Samsung, over and over. Here's another review. Of Shas from Shannon an-an-an-and, unna wished I'd stayed away. My husband did I being fans of the doors thought it would be interesting to visit the cemetery, but it was a big disappointment. Else wished you'd stayed away. was everybody else who's buried in the cemetery? The loved ones of people that actually have reason to go there. The cemetery itself was interesting and we enjoyed strolling around to see the old gravesites in mausoleums. flicking butts and Oregon. Finding specific graves was difficult even with a map once we actually located Morrison's grave. We were very disappointed. Was He not in there? we had a mental image of having a peaceful moment thereby ourselves. Everybody else had the same mental I. Mean it's it's a tourist trap. Why would you think that? But there were throngs of other tourists. They give out maps to it. It's fucking. Exactly. I went to Lisa and there was always. Close. Also, the grave is the only one in the entire cemetery that is actually fenced off. Because people like you. Visitors can't even go to Morrison's graveside and have to stand about ten feet back. HOW ARE WE GONNA? DIG 'EM UP IF we can get to them. Seems Weird. This is likely due to the actions of the jerks who clearly cannot resist the urge to graffiti the surrounding graves and mausoleums in a very disrespectful manner man. Now you're on it Colombo. I'm glad you got to the bottom of that one. You have to dust for fingerprints on that, or did you come to that on your own conclusion? I'M NOT GONNA. Say definitely. Likely. You know my leading theory. My suspect anyone that declares themselves adores fan. They wrote phrases like Jim is God and light my fire. I. Lay My fire a love. You Jim Morrison light my fire. That's the message to leave for Jim Morrison. GonNa go to Jim Morrison's grave and right the doors on it. Is Right. His name is like accent. His. Name with an era just. Thanks for ruining the visit for everyone else rock and roll I guess. It's. Totally rock and roll, people go to cemeteries to pay their respects, but it would have been far more respectful to stay away. Glad I'm glad I am so glad that is the lesson you've learned. What are you doing there? Yeah, this reviewer's about to have their peyote trip in the desert. where? They realized that they are the person they're criticizing Gabriel, am. Gave a two out of five. This is a place for the dead, not for the living. Yes It is yeah, yeah, place living would be a hotel or a restaurant at almost anywhere else. The most beloved one is Oscar. Wilde, by far, he is covered with kisses and roses. One. Like lipstick on the. Assume. Well I mean. This is definitely a Pre Cova Review. No one's going kissing the Oscar Wilde Statue. Doesn't seem sanitary at all. Just my luck, that's the way I'd go. French, kissing a bust of Oscar Wilde, what happens, is you go you go to a concert or party? No, I was. Looking! Yeah the boss of Oscar. It's a right of you know it is. You can't go to Paris without Kissing Oscar Wilde Statue. In the French style lot of the tombstones are in bad shape, but there it is, it is true the beauty of decay. Well that's poetry. The right there for us in the middle of this review I. Mean you know it is a very old cemetery and Paris has been gruesome. She it, so you know. Give him a pass on the. Rage looking old south I'm sure all the Nazis French kissing, Oscar Wilde was probably something. The good news is the places expanding. The cemeteries expanding that is terrible news at the cemetery. Six men make good news bunch more people. Why are they still expanding cemeteries? It's just a waste of waste of space I know. This old to in the middle of Paris like it's such a human thing to do to be like new I. Want to take up when I'm dead to yeah, want my own little statue. Claude Chabrier role is a new addition to the artist's. Welcome Claude. Regulation. FUCKING DEAD! You should've been there for his welcome party. It was why there's such a fucking mess in the cemetery. I don't mind us. We just had a big party Claude. I don't want to feel left out. And be sure to find a couple newcomers in the years to come. Is Dark. Everyone dies you. Are you are correct? Apparently Marcel Marceau is here now to Oh. Well you wouldn't know it. No now there's a box of truly can't get out of. His grave with US two. Hands, up. Face painted. The box always wins Marcel. You cheated the box one too many times in the end. The box comes first. Goths we need to take over and start making late night raves in here and bringing the dead back to life. That took a turn. I love that it's a clarion call to goths. No one ever said with any sort of. Any sort of conviction goths. We need to DOT, com. THAT'S NOT A. Goths rise up. Well, it's GONNA. Take me at least three to four hours to get ready. I mean you know. Once I finished Mike my hair up late up these boots. These things taken our. Ends daylight. Exhausted moving onto the Whiskey Gogo yeah, the the famous prominent role in in the doors looms large. Their legend does loom learn large in their legend quarry. AM gives it a one out of five. I went to your for a heavy metal concert. A while in the middle of the main floor dropped my phone. It was the new iphone X. and I was doing everything to find it. Boy that is just crawling around on the floor. Feeling around for it and look. We've all got iphones. Okay, you're not better than us. When I went to the management to seek assistance, they said sorry they was too busy to help. Yeah. What are they GONNA? Do Clear the club. Go. Find Your own fucking phone dummy. We don't know where it is. It presumably fell straight down like it. End over and it anywhere. Like! There's not a does not a whitewater rapid running through the middle of the whiskey on. It? If it's this hard to find. It's lost. And again go. They're not gonNA. Clear the club. Ugarit turn the lights up. Everybody against the walls. With no one at the door anymore. Basically, it was just too much for them to help pay customers. Chew paid five bucks after I expressed how lazy and unhelpful they was being. They threw me out of the club after I explain to these people how much they focus. They gave me the boot. Let me let me have ten minutes of your time for me to explain to you. How shitty you are as a human being. Okay. They did not help me and I was outraged. Or not until I went to call the police ESCO Others on the sidewalk to help me that they jumped up del me and to are surprised by working together. We found my phone. Wasn't rollercoaster.

Asking about the club, like was the sound good. because. That's really the only thing I care about Iraq. Love is not how helpful they work because I'm. I dropped my iphone. I. Know The answer to that question. There's a club in America that's going to be helpful. Not GonNa decide whether or not to go to this club based on you dropping your fucking iphone being an asshole about it, walking up a doorman, and just being like I dropped my iphone. I could not I'm not an Alpha personality that that's below, even me. That's excuse me. Sir. Who wrote my my telephone, yeah!

Just full disclosure I definitely lost my fucking cool, and he was I was a little about once you get the iphone back and all the adrenaline is gone. You're just sort of like. Did I cry. I cried at one point. I didn't cry. But the way those people are looking at me. It seems like I might have cried. This is definitely an I. Am the asshole. The absolutely! The adrenaline wears off. Once is once his iphone X. Posse disbanded. Okay. Oh. That wasn't cool, was it? Just swinging wildly accusing people. Everybody's looking. At the band stopped.

That's how we ended up on the sidewalk, trying to rally people to his cause I wanNA. Be looked around at the posse of people who he got to work together and was just like. Who are these people they? Want to go back to your place. Hang out and stuff. You said we could all crash with. Listen I made a lot of promises when I was in the heat of looking for my phone. He was absolutely just. APOPLECTIC. He would do anything to get his phone back. Promise anything. Wait we're roommates. You, said. If I found it I could move in with my three brothers. Go to the bathroom with you why?

"For me it's never about money. You know what i mean. It's it's about getting in there and it's an honor and humbling experience every time i get to go play doc look john. Eh but i'm the biggest canton i am on the prowl indeed. Welcome welcome to podcast. This is cats. John cats lameda of the las vegas review journal. My columnists called cats fittingly enough. Find it on page three every every day and online all the time our guest. This week is brian newman. The master trumpet player and bandleader out of new york city prion has risen to fame as the bandleader. Dan leader for lady gaga dating back more than a decade to their days in new york newman returns to las vegas on october seventeenth twenty performs with gaga in her jazz in piano residency at park theta. He's also a stripped resident headliner in his own right with a late night show at nomad restaurant park m._g._m. Shows a right after the gaga shows. Newman performed select dates through december thirtieth and gaga herself has shown up for a few shows after she and newman performed together park theatre i saw them. I think four times it <hes> nomad restaurant. It was quite a hand one note before we get going. We tape this interview in the middle of manhattan so you're going to hear a couple of sirens as we speak. I figured those of you who are listening to this. Well driving might appreciate that heads up now on my interview with the great brian newman i newman yes china care here. We are in your home court. Yes we are definitely gramercy neighborhood of beautiful new york city. You tell me where i am. I barely know we're in gramercy park. That's on the east side of manhattan knock way lower manhattan but not quite mid or up upper right in between on allurement <hes>. Let's have a map brian. We got to know you in last vegas. When you came in you storm the city the <hes> plan <hes> at the nomad restaurant. You're coming back. I can't dates is october. Seventeenth october seventeenth starts and then we'll be there until i think november eighth third third tenth. I believe okay i. It's a long run this weeks. <hes> we have twenty shows and then we have four four five shows with with got it. Yes the gaga brian. Just mentioned is in fact lady gaga as i mentioned at the top of the episode brian is to bandleader for her jazz piano shows park m._g._m. Among other shows bandleader for that we help put together a big band. We me and the boys right a lot of all all of the music so we arrange in i and write all the music for that. You know make changes and whatever needs to happen. That's what that's what we do. Brian has been a friend of lady gaga for about a decade which brings up a pretty yeah good question. How does someone go about becoming friends with lady gaga in the first place. Brian told me he first met gaga while they're both working at a bar called saint jerome's on the laurie are- side of manhattan he was a bartender and gaga was a d._j. Apparently the place was just packed with good vibes and creative energy. Maybe eighty people around routinely a hundred people in their hundred people outside just lots of good vibes lots of good energy with your impression her. When you first met her she was just i always on her and all the people that were most of the people that we gravitated together to this the scene at the saint jerome's was you know a lot of friends of mine that are still better in the industry. Hey that worked for fashion or or or film or you know. It was just kind of a melting pot of people that would i what i liked. Most about that places just like it was the first time where i felt felt like oh my god i can do whatever i want. I can be myself i can. Do you know what i mean like in. She was doing the same thing we were all doing that. You know we were doing the playing playing it music on the plane music as much could and then working to pay for rent as much as we had to you know what i mean struggling yeah they call eh drinking and partying in between oh and her the way she regret relates to you in las vegas onstage and off because it's obvious you're friends uh-huh obstacle clearly. This was a real french at preceded anybody's it's fan. She's a great musician where we just have a good time doing what we do together. You know what i mean. It's like a particle. Is that what you say sydney yeah. It's like you just like your we don't. We don't have to say anything like i. I can tell l. if she wants. Something different like i can tell if it's not right and then i say oh well we can do we can. I give her another option. We do you know what i mean. She's driving the bus span. She's she's. She's a she's a killer queen but she's she's been very instrumental has a <hes> so to speak in the success of the residents in the first place by her interest not only endorsing helping you make the deal but showing up being there stead i mean help it helps out on and it's amazing which comes down i love to see you know like the fans reaction the action just the just camaraderie and that just kind of like <hes> like it was when sinatra was here was there was here we the two sinatra like that that that i felt like even when you're stories about las vegas back in the day even new york back in the day you hear stories like sewn also dropping into the earth so and so's geoghegan and then even if they're not seeing their hanging in there playing it truly become part of las vegas lore and it's it's so great all visiting visiting artists say that about las shave for example jack medians the headline reads like we wanna go to the place where you can drop in and hang and people get called up an interesting to wild kicks in you know what here's one of those now i was it was great like even just to have carrot top of wayne and the mr mr mr newton not just on the they have those guys come down and just like be a part of it. You know what i mean yeah and she was really really great. It was great. You're the structure. Your show's very interesting interesting brian because it's not just a band show at all. It's a you incorporate other forms of entertainment for leska infusion an algorithm other uh-huh cuddles pity party so he's my family about how you how you <hes> your your vision for for what you want to bring it's more than just you singing and playing trumpet i just i just think a as as a as a musician my job is to entertain to be entertaining and to make people feel like they're not feel like there's somewhere else else for a little while or just forget about all the stuff that's going on in their lives that everyone has you know what i mean just to be somewhere else and enjoy that and i think to be fully fully able to do that ad is just to be able to like bring in other people like that connection between you know someone who you know like arianna savalas or polygon or jacqueline expanded like making centerpiece puddles and we can talk about a song over the phone and then we can come up and do it and it's and it's not talking about not talking about you know what i mean like just non verbal obviously speaking all that was difficult but we pulled dot com for the first time at a cost him at a jimmy kimmel's club and i barely recognize that he came up to me he goes. Hey let's go talks. He's one of my favorites minute. He actually did a lot of shows. A humane angie did a lot of shows with him and they were his shows in atlanta. Yeah you know i'm not sure if he was always puddles back then. I gotta ask him but he was he was. It's like m._c. Hammer like not maybe not only not. I'm not talking about anton yeah yeah. You guys have a home. She's going to be out in vegas. Doing what a bunch of dates with us two. She hasn't appeared with you in las vegas yet. She has not there was the the schedules did not line up last time and i can't wait to have her there boy and just to change it up like i don't want to do the same thing we did last time. I want to see that you're going to see a different show. You know what i mean like. We're going to change some things up just because that's i don't want the same old same same old. You know we're we're. We're not a best big of a show where we we have to do the same thing every night. The show is is is loose enough that we can change up yeah. Obviously there'll be some of the old favorites that we like to sing and play. I see i see that there's going to be some numbers and earth gog join. Just gigolos got to be in that. It's something to just be indifferent. Burlesque performers different special guests and of course we'll have jacqueline again and all anybody any already honest abolish jacqueline expand and jukebox host monetary fame's we say right but yeah but i'm always just looking for other and other other cats i mean i think what robby robby guitar player from the doors the original maybe he's gonna come down krieger on krieger robby krieger really trying to get him down to see him. Go through a friend of mine that works for the lupus alliance okay and she put us in touch so we're trying to work that out so that's that's. There's some through lucas robinson in that role. I know i'm not sure but i think there. I knew the girl your girl through the lupus alliance wayne. We've talked about family has been touched uh-huh dishing mccraw. My dear friend has been active in that community to some wondering if there's yeah we'd sleep. We played a benefit for them. Not onto like maybe a year or two ago but i had known this <hes> and so we're trying to put that together and just stuff like that and some other kinds of positions you know the <hes>. Let's go through the cats the guys in your band the couch tell me about the inflight him up and come home for the piano player keyboardist alex smith. I've been playing with him since one thousand nine hundred nine as well as the tenor player. Steve cortijo both been broken. <hes> you know playing together a long time and just they're. They're kind of. They're they're the best man i couldn't do without al and steve daniel is plays. The bass player and nolan bird has been playing drums with us for about a about a year and he's just been he's been killing two so it's great to have have to have a band that we played together new york three or four nights a week sometimes more and then we go out there and and we do the show you know what i mean like. It's it's like it's it's not rehearsal in new york but it is we can try new stuff at like at the rosebud on tuesdays and thursdays we have art saturday night and find it rare but defining that's where i say oh yeah there yeah yeah when brian plays with lady gaga jazz piano. He leads a thirty piece orchestra well thirty. One including gaga got herself according to brian when the band gets together to write all the charts their biggest goal is to keep it real real at all for me realize that that like you said count basie and all those those great big bands of that era that didn't mince notes they just put it all on the peninsula and that's it and that's and that's why the band is who is in the band and orchestra and what we need him yeah i. I always say <hes> olympic. Forget the one other point about when ask about how you <hes> <hes> recruited in the midst of some las vegas players jazz piano jokes. I know obvious guys were in vegas players. All i know yes h how did you sign them and i mean it all started with it. All started when we first came and did the win theater the first time <hes> with with gaga and it was the david loeb and a showstopper zorka so many of those people and that was a little smaller of the band there was only if i recall there was three trumpets three trombones and it was a different string there was there was this loosely <hes> it was awesome dollar ticket show donkor yes sixteen. We did a one novas right before new year's eve. That's where i got to see first time. I was so impressed by the whole thing. That was the night when i'm like that guy. I was sketched ship an leader. It's really making this happen daiki man. I was scared scared. I it was a well heeled crowd. Ah yes it definitely that definitely was sometimes. I do shows like that and i don't. I don't even remember any details about the whole show afterwards. I just go ooh on an island. I just remember insult each event thousand dollars a shot but yeah so they were in that in that basso allowed i did. I called david loeb. <hes> re up for a first of david loeb. He's just amazing conductor amazing. Not there's just general studies program. He's he's just amazing and i i love david yep. He's just a constant professional who also played the hillstreet blues steam. Yes family guys family today by the way he doesn't talk about any of that to. That's crazy. It means a lot but we got to generate interest through these other. I called the bait hillstreet blues or steffi's done in the past for t._v. Macfarland it's really care anyway. That's what makes it so great that one of the things that makes him so great so i spoke with him and amount he gave me some some <hes> some insight and <hes> <hes> <hes> just you know and then the santa fe i wanted to see santa fe fat city horns because everybody was talking about these guys and they play all play with selene and you know what i mean and i it's just <hes> it's just that you know we'll let it up but the but the selene connection action is there. There's donny and marie connect. I know yeah and it just in general because somebody fantastic musicians to be able to put together this supergroup to me. It's a supergroup geico of of of players. We've you know what it's interesting. I've just been covering this to brian you might if you're following all but we've had some fumes musicians especially the banda terry fater show a ventriloquist headliner garage has had to get rid of them six and because of the market you know it's hard right now with live musicians as you know the human nature had to get rid of their <hes> trumpet player near bad eben scaling back some of their production your guy. I've always i've felt in a short of tony was his younger guy with an older soul. You know with an antique sold and you know a throwback personality. Thanks what do you think about what you do in the future of it. What is your opinion of the value of live musician. Are you optimistic that we do is going to be valued. I of course yes. I think i'm optimistic mystic but i also think that not all of these issues but i think we'll get serious for minute. I think some musicians and i'm not saying anything but like you they have to they'd have to music has to be presented in a way that can be accessible to everyone. That's job security. You know what i mean like for for me. It's like if if if no one else can do what we do then we were going to have a place always going to be and if there's if if it's something different and i'm not saying we're reinventing the wheel or changing anything or you know i'm. I'm doing a show that has been done for. You know one hundred fifty years in america. You know you know what i mean. Isn't there's nothing different. You know no changing the formula but it's just about that bringing people in and making them feel like it's a part of it and i don't know that that doesn't mean anything or musicians that you know that that the marketing is they're scaling scaling back but i don't know i think it gets. It's all part of this episode of podcast. We'll be right back. We'll get back to the interview in exactly exactly twenty seconds. I'd like to use those twenty seconds to once again. Say thanks for listening and ask for a quick favor if you're listening to this on apple podcasts and you'd like mike what you're hearing. Please leave us a rating and review if you want to support the show. That's the best way to do it. Your reviews go a long way to help. Podcasts reached new listeners now now back to the show welcome back one of the things i find so interesting about lady gaga jazz and piano shows that she didn't need to have a show band show as part part of her residency in las vegas in the first place in fact she even tells her audience from the stage that the people who booked her weren't so sure about the jazz show she can do whatever because she wants a goal goal over the world play shows all wherever she wants to do but for her to want to do with the jazz and to bring that the american music to a younger audience and that's key to keeping our marketable marketability like you were saying to keep that market up high so people need live music people i mean i don't know most of the shows that i've it into in l._a. Or new york in the past ten years don't have a live band anymore. You know what i mean. There's there's there's no because there's no way to even make any money money doing it in order to do it without a live band you have to have ten or fifteen performers in show to get that ninety minutes and they have a good m._c. to be able to <music>. Get the whole thing without the band but when you have the band it's like a you know me and answer your performing or some of the girls like you know they look at us and and they're having fund that we keep going. You know what i mean or or it's like hey. It's time to wrap it up. I g string is pasties are out so let's end the song now but you know that's that's to me. That's the most fun thing about it and i think the audience sees that even if they don't even know what's going on. I mean even if they don't know they're not in show biz. They don't know the vibe but they understand ended. You know that we're up. They're having a good time. They're having a good time to that's. That's for me. That's of utmost importance. Your your show is is different from no throwback shows in one crucial crucial way you know when when louis prima keely smith sam you turn witnesses and people like even even don rickles lounger cecchi green and take for free. They were no cover because they were subsidized by the game the gambling rights. You guys are ticketed. Show you're in there. You're a high shirley high-priced show for what you do you. What do you think about that. How how much thought cross you put into the ticket price and i mean me personally yeah. I think that's the lowest one. I i honestly don't really know. I know that we're doing some <hes>. We're adding some dinner yet for dinner dinner before and stuff like that into the performance but <hes> for me. I i think people are are. They don't gamble like they used to in one checking those guys out there so there's i don't think that money is necessarily. We don't know you you would know better. You know it's not the primary profit center anyone told me and just to make i mean just to fly the band out and do all the stuff you need to we need to we need to make a little bit but on the casino needs to make a little bit restaurant. He's saying so we're we're in for me. It's never about money. You know what i mean. It's it's about getting in. There and it's like it's like i said we've said before. It's an honor and humbling experience. Every time i get to go and play and pay us like to be in the hallowed halls of those names that you just mentioned going to high school. You know like everybody went to you know. I don't recall being somewhere where you know even though we're in the parking g._m. There's monte carlo. There's a net energy and then there's the energy from the other s- casinos the skyline that have alban imploded right yeah this. Is this algranati feel good that your shows always coincided with the with the residence farm was discussion of you. I'm coming in on your own outside of her dates. I i think so but i'm not sure when you don't want to get all absolutely i would love to be there more often. Get some momentum going or maybe move out to las vegas man. I love. I love as utopia. Yes we can rent that. All i always i would <hes> you know what i mean. If we're going to be there more often i'll i'll be there more often to responser. Let's remax. I love rematch the century twenty one or any mention all of them shameless shameless plug look back to you bryan but it is it is it could be a an opportunity for you. Guys come out and i think he's the biggest opportunity of atta my whole life honestly asli i i really it's it's so many times i say it but it's like a surreal and it's just like it's it's. It's amazing to me and i love to be able to do something like that there because we've done that show new york i've done that. Show you know what i mean. We did it for five or six years at this place downtown and it was great. It was gangbusters but then as the venues disappear in new york there's nowhere there's i have only a couple times. We've we've brought it back but the room has to be right five s to be right food has to be right drinks have to to be right for everything to work like that and the nomad is the perfect place for it because all of those things jive. You know what i mean like. The management is into the management above them as interim cooks are into it. The line cooks are into the servers but it's it's your thing your management point. I mean we're the last show i think his last show was chris. Paul design was was a audience across me and you know those are the power players. He was having a good time. Chris was chris was influential in actually getting us in there. He's been he's he's. He was just like our point man and he really really just. I love that guy for having us man for giving us a chance. He likes entertainment and not only does does he loved his job and it's effective and he likes to hang go to these thing. He'll go to it yeah <hes>. How do you think how do you think gaga was like like an all this. Do you know if you have hung. She loves it. Yeah i mean listen things. She said she doesn't have to do anything. She comes to the show and she does her show. What does the jazz show and is so enthralled with that. You know what i mean. It just like the way she sings those songs and you know with the orchestra and then we do a three hour russia to out two and a half hour show and then do three hour show after that's really what it's been here. I've been getting out of their last night. I think we left at like six a._m. The eight o'clock call i was i was out at least until three that that is old biggest guys because you start doing the mathematics on the schedule. It's like okay they. We started the show at midnight in rickles cecchi role than one. That's a long night it really is. I don't even feel tired. I feel great. They're relaxed. I feel positive i mean it was a classic moment. When i was watching you play and it was at the i think he'd take intermission and i was trying to get up to the bar and get a fizzy water and working my way through an unseen. Ida said hi everybody the barnum like why exit emphasis in the bar and club at the bar and i look up and gaga sitting on. I said this is actually a classic scene.

I can give you twenty seven reasons why that statement is true. For would be the number of family members. He would dismiss it eventually abandoned as he went west to California to Hollywood, to the big time to a place far off in his own mind, where he made the rules to more will be the number of days the past, when he got lost in the desert with a friend off on a soul searching acid dropping boondoggle. He returned with wild tales about what exactly happened to his companion. Another fourteen would be the age of the girl standing on the sidewalk that he impulsively stopped to kiss while driving down Hawthorne. Avenue. To more, we'll be the number of white lightning, LSD tabs. He gobbled up and chased with puffs of grass and watery domestic before heckling the well intentioned band on stage at the Turkey giant. West and five will be the number of years. You'd have left to live. After held girls captive in her apartment, Preston knife against her flesh, and threatened to Qatar Open for disrespecting him. On this episode underage Girls White Lightning Death, threats and Jim Morrison lost another fantasy. I'm Jay Brennan. This is the twenty seven. Chief William Parker of the Los Angeles police. Department insisted that this was no fantasy. The reality waiting for them behind the closed doors of the Muslim temple on South Broadway the headquarters for the L.. A. Chapter of the Nation of Islam was clear. Guns. Piles of guns, pistols, shotguns, assault weapons, locked and loaded. A veritable shit storm of resistance, the challenge, the various authority chief. Parker had fought so hard to maintain. The anonymous tip have been called in after dark. And it confirmed the suspicions had been festering and chief parkhead the suspicions that the nation of Islam or the Communist Party or shit. Maybe both working in tandem were hell bent on undermining the LAPD in order to push their own agenda chief. Parker was sure sherve. The muscles in his shoulders neck were tense in his migraine swelled. Parker was exhausted. It was two am on Wednesday August. Eighteenth, nineteen, sixty five and the watts riots had just ended the day before. The city was broken. It was smoldering leading. Though. The rioting had stopped in the curfews have been lifted. La was still beyond fucked. It had been a full on urban war unlike anything any American city had ever experienced. It all started with a simple traffic stop and watts. A working class African, American neighborhood in southern Los Angeles black driver White Cop L. A. was in the middle of a nasty heat wave. It had been sweltering in the nineties all week. Many wants. Residents didn't have any money for air conditioning, so the sidewalks in front yards. We're full of people milling about. The driver of the nineteen fifty five Buick Marquette Frye have been drinking as the field sobriety tests show. But when Marquette's brother passenger car went to get Marquette's mother, things escalated. Marquette's mother angry then Marquette. Soon. Everyone got angry. Some shove, and then another person was shoved in copter shotgun from his patrol car in a crowd, began a form, and then marquette lost you. motherfucking white cops aren't taking me anywhere. The crowd of hot angry watts residents got bigger from a hundred or three hundred people. The cops called backup wasps about to riot days wasn't just about the traffic stop. It wasn't just about Marquette Frye. The tension in watts went deeper than that. The tension have been there for years. The black community endured substandard living conditions lack of opportunity in seemingly endless harassment from police. In the two years, leading up to this incident, cops had shot sixty seven black residents half of them in the back and half of them were on earth. So on that day when the cops faced off with Marquette, Frye. Marquette Frye refused back down, the people of Wadsworth rose up. They protested with violence. Stores reloaded. Buildings were burned. Rocks thrown guns were fired. A mob of three thousand people took to the commercial section of odds. Transform themselves in a neighborhood snipers in shot at firetrucks to keep them away from the burning buildings. President Johnson called in the national. Guard curfews were in force, not just for Watts, but for other African American neighborhoods now as well. A spray painted wooden sign in the middle of the street, leading into watts red turn left or get shot. Dick Gregory in African American comedian and social activists was brought in to address the crowds at help. Restore Order. And they shot him to. Watts was burning. The riots set off a slew of national urban protests, not hippy grabs him signs some acoustics in some reefer and hit the quad, but real violent protests riots over racial inequality and social injustice broke out in cities, all over America New York. Philly Rochester Newark. California in La had proper warning, but of course they said it would never happen there. It would never happen in California. We're just a year earlier. White voters passed proposition fourteen, which turned back social. Social progress in kept segregation alive by making it legal for property owners landlords to discriminate against tenants based on the color of their skin. It would never happen in Los Angeles. Where in April of nineteen sixty two cops rolled up to a and shot seven unearned black Muslims one was paralyzed for life another a Korean War vet was shot from behind while submitting to arrest in died, but it did happen, and it happened in Watts after the police. Police in authority brought the hammer down. After thirteen thousand national guardsmen were brought in to crush the protests. Thirty four people had been killed. The majority of them were shot by police officers or national guardsmen. All the dead were black, one thousand were treated in hospitals, another four thousand were arrested, two hundred sixty one buildings destroyed by fires and other destruction in another six hundred were heavily damaged and yet to chief Parker. This wasn't a race war this. This wasn't about racial inequality and social injustice. It wasn't a disenfranchised population reaching a breaking point with a culture of rampant white supremacy, fear and hate no chief Parker believed it was communists end Muslims chief Parker's own personal boogeyman. He was sure of it. He told his protege Darryl Gates about his theories. He makes sure that Gates didn't think they were fantasies. Either Gates would remember those conversations with Parker. When he gets a lead, the forest decades later. Parker getting the heads of everyone on the police force. He knew the nation of Islam Muslims from the south. Broadway temple weren't just law-abiding citizens practicing their freedom of religion. They were sympathetic to deep-rooted threats to American democracy, namely Communists and worse than that they were armed to the teeth with heavy firepower at a point in La History. When she parker's police department was doing everything, it could to maintain control. Uphold its authority. And Parker new, the today, the Muslims from the South Broadway temple were planning on killing some cops. Parker clutched department issued piece felt as Migraine, pound, and insistent throb right as palm grip, the guns handle. He was surrounded by other LAPD officers with their own tensed up next and shoulders, their own itchy trigger fingers ready to burst through the front doors of the temple at two am on a hot August predawn warning. Shit was about to get real. As the COPS started ram the front doors. They thought they heard loud. Sounds from inside banks pops because sworn there'd. Sworn they heard gunshots. Just Parker who's Parker's paranoia successfully planned to not chief Parker was inside their heads. There were no shots coming from inside the temple. There are only the shots being fired by the LAPD. LICKOCHOPS raise their weapons and entered the temple firing just like they had in sixty two. When they wrote on the mosque, they lit the place up and they found no guns. No weapons no immunization. Three weeks later. A judge dismissed charges against the arrested nation of Islam members. He blamed the whole thing on. LAPD's imagination undeterred in unable to let his fantasy slip away. Pirker switch tactics and started blaming watts and its aftermath on the civil rights movement, which he said was preying on people's emotions a year later chief, Parker died of a heart attack after receiving an award standing ovation from the Second Marine, division he was the longest serving chief, the police department, and certainly one of if not the most controversial. Meanwhile Marquette, Frye joined the nation of his. In the summer of Nineteen, sixty five Los Angeles was forever changed scarred the tensions bubbling below the surface had exploded just like at other spots throughout the United States. The social sea-change had arrived, and it wasn't pretty. The disenfranchised had had enough of their oppressors bullshit. The hippies were looking up in the establishment riots. Protests love INS, biens and Jim Morrison could not be bothered. He spent his days during the summer of sixty five on Venice. Beach apartment building rooftop sherp stone. Living Off Avocados, oranges in a seemingly endless supply of mind altering LSD. Far Away from the war zone Watts Venice. Beach May as well have been in a different solar systems. Jim. was having his own private Watson inside his mind that he feted dope and acid him booze. He learned what he had been taught tore down. The values of his parents chased the new reality in the fantasy. World is mind created. He did what he wanted his carefree life frightening. It liberated him in a frequently got into hot water with the law. Especially, when is so-called? Liberations involved an underage girl in a missing friend. Jim, Morrison didn't know the girl was only fourteen. He motioned to her standing on the side of Hawthorne Avenue in Los Angeles, her arms crossed in her stance, impatient, and then motion back to the LAPD officer looking over his identification. He leaned in towards the cops. Here dropped his voice to just above a whisper. She was fourteen you. The COP was amused. Jim looked back to the girl. Another cop was now standing next to her, and with that added perspective, he could see it now next to the hulking cop. It was clear she was definitely fourteen. Fuck something. He clearly hadn't seen when he abruptly jumped out of the moving Red Chevy to grabber kiss her side of the road. He looked at Philippino friend who is behind the wheel of Chevy Phil looked like he wanted to slink down below the steering wheel and make himself scarce until this whole thing was over. The. COP REPEATED JIM statement back to him, so he had told fill the slam on the brakes right here in the Middle Hawthorne so that he could bail from the passenger side scarce, some teenage stranger out of her wits by running up on her, and kissing her right here in the middle of Hawthorne. Jim Laughed and nodded his head. He added that he didn't expect the police cruiser to be rolling by. At that moment happened. The feeling just came over. She was there he was feeling friendly. Why not carpet diem and all that other jive? macab arched eyebrow, and the other officer walked over to say that the wasn't looking to press charges, and the cops in California didn't know Jim by name yet. They would eventually cops all over the country would soon no Jim Morrison by name, Rock, enrolls public enemy number, one troublemaker extraordinaire that drunk bearded beatnik. In one, thousand, nine, hundred, sixty, five Jim Morrison. was nobody just another Weirdo freak jumping out of his car and do some stupid. Weirdo freak stunt. The cops told me knock it off and did. The year before Jim Finally transferred from Fsu to Ucla where he restarted his academic career as a film student. You read in each read Huxley Read. Young Red Ginsburg and Komo tried to shock and outrage with the student films in return. He received rejection in Burg grades. fucking if his film professors and fellow students didn't want to acknowledge his pure talent, make fuck right off. When they handed out diplomas that spring in nineteen sixty five. Jim was far away from the UCLA campus. He had successfully camped Venice. Beach you part of the scenery human driftwood. He crashed on the rooftop of the apartment building where his friend Jacob lived raided nearby avocado an orange trees for sustenance. Let the sun bake is bare chest and lighten up his long hair. Venice uniquely Californian stretch of sand on the west side of La is known for its bipolar blend drug-fuelled counterculture, certain 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 nineteen sixties and Jim Morrison was there. Take it all in from high upon? It's rooftop perch. The Sun rose the sunset. Black smoke drifted from watts from the east and dissipated by the time it reached the coast. Watts could have been happening on an entirely different planet as far as Jim. Morrison was concerned. There the roof. He was above it all above shitty grades in 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, he could be himself whatever that was, and he could shoe on LSD unsupervised. Crushed, LSD tabs between his teeth and outfielder snacks on sunflower seeds. It was everywhere in Venice. Beach House white lightning tabs were passed around the boardwalk. Acid was over the counter, treated and his head shops. But over the counter acid and free for all white lightning was not enough for Jim. He needed more wanted it right from the source. He wanted to squeeze that. peyote, cactus taste pure mescaline, stick his tongue out freak and hot as it sought. That was the trip you wanted to take the ultimate trim. So it was the Jim and Phil. Hopton the 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 crack, dearth and Toke desolation. He heard about ceremonies were native Americans shoot arrows at the Peyote cactus to prove their mettle. Jim New 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, peyote trip in the desert would offer a 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 Peyote CACTI with his native American brethren stories about Latino Gang that took offence to his curly 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 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 in. 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 Morrison the moonlight intensified. The night were on in the shadows across. Phil's face ebbed and flowed. Free the Falco. Jim couldn't remember the exact way that he murdered. Phil but you remembered burying his body in a river bed, which riverbed which desert which Peyote cactus which face Phil was wearing at the time. Jim couldn't say. Jim is friends in Venice didn't know what to think. Gyms fantasies came and went sometime. Weren't that far off from reality and other times they were certifiably Gonzalez. They laughed it off as Jimmy Jim. Even if it was strange that she would return with Phil Chevy no film. And there was one person though and wasn't laughing off Phil's father. He got wind of gyms story in his shook him to the core. Phil's father was a lawyer. His son had been missing for days now, and he had a 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. That Jimmy Kissed on Hawthorne Convinced Her 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 Morrison away for good while he was at it. But almost as soon as the cops put you under arrest. Phil appeared dazed confused back from the dead. But Jim wasn't a murder. He wasn't a Peyote. forager assures wasn't getting pummeled by bikers on the side of the desert highway. Those fantasies weren't working. Everyone saw saw bullshit stories. He told that he apparently got off on. A fake a phony. Needed a new fancy when that he can really stretch his legs inside of one that one would see coming, but the everyone would absolutely believed was. He found on a stage in Santa Marta when he was least expecting the first of many stages read have all eyes on him watching you as he let her designer it and went hog mild.

Morrison stood at the back of the crowd of Turkey joint West cupped his hands around his mouth and screamed as requested stage for the second time. Louis Louis. Jim Favored the back of the room in any room because of the back of the room, generally meant close proximity to the Bar can maintain first person accessed to beers all night in also be far enough away from the stage that he could heckle as loud as he wanted and not be seen by the performers. The Band Rick and the Ravens announced another surf rock flavored jammed the crowd at the Turkey out West, a British pub on the ocean, and the Santa Monica Boulevard. The crowd clapped approval, but Jim dismissively waved his hand to the stage and audibly groaned. Jim Knocked back the rest of the bud. Stein wiped his foamy mouth at the back of his hand and Yeltsin. More Rwanda you me really Louis. Louis Louis, the free bird of the sixties, sure the song was jam, reductive, insistent and sloppy, but to Jim. A big part of the songs allure was the perception of shock value. Originally written by rich and in nineteen, fifty five, Louis Louis has since become one of the most recorded songs in pop history. In nineteen sixty, three two rival bands in Portland Oregon started playing the song in their live sets hall, revere and the Raiders. Kingsman the kingsman took it to the limit one night, and played a forty five minutes set just Louis Louis which in my estimation is simultaneously one of the coolest most subversive moves ban could ever pull. The next day they went into the studio and recorded their Electric Piano Frat rock version of the tune that would prove to be the most Durrie, a few years later in nineteen sixty five college bands like Rick, and the Ravens included it in their crowd-pleasing repertoires. But a large part of the songs notoriety had to the Kingsman slurred delivery of lyric in the song supposed- obscene content. Did the KINGSMAN slip sexually graphic song about a sailor and his lady friend onto the billboard and cashbox charts. Did they really just sing me? Fuck that girl. All kinds of ways never mind the rumored racist lyrics, which is a whole other conversation that we won't get into here, but let's just say they would not have upset. Police chief Parker. Not Entirely unsuspected radio stations banned Louis Louis from the air. Mothers forbid their children to bring that filthy forty five at their homes. It was such a controversy that the FBI. The FBI launched a month long investigation into the song to determine. If it was truly filthy, they sped it up. They slowed down. They played the forty five at thirty, three and a third played. Played in it's seventy eight near conclusion unintelligible at any speed years later, the Kingsman Drummer Lynn Easton admitted that the authorities were onto something. It was hidden in plain sight in never discovered. He caught yelling fuck after he botched drawn, Phil smacked his together near the end of the first minute of the saw its. They're gonNA. Give it a listen. Turn it of love. All of the made Jim Morrison loved the song even more he loved how the public's reaction to the song was so divided, how teetered on the edge of decency how it made people uncomfortable it need parents uncomfortable Jim had seen her talked to his own parents in a while, but he was sure as Shit Louis Louis offended every bone in their conservative bodies, and that made him smile, as he stood at the bar at the back of the Turkey joint west and demanded a big reductive insistence sloppy jam at once. Louis Louis. Before Rick and the Ravens started up another surf rock tune the singer and sometimes piano player Raymond's Eric held his Handa. The band's stood at ease. He put his hand flat up above his eyes squint to the back of the room. Morrison that you. Ray asked into the Mike Jim and Ray. We're UCLA film buds gyms. Reputation preceded him as did his loaded booming voice. Only Jim Morrison would be drunkenly giving the ban shit from the back of the Bar Jim yelled back. We gotta go Jim Morrison the Mary Prankster Ray made the decision on stage turned the joke around on his film school friend. We'll come on up here Morrison Racist. Let's hear you sing it if you want to hear it so bad. Jim Three sheets to the wind on draft, bud and stone, some good Venice grass, and a few taps, white lightning happily obliged. He took the stage ray ended in the Mike, he assessed the crowd, ran his left hand, his dark, tangled hair, and then let out a guttural. It started his belly mixed up with all the bud, and resonated up through his chest arms, babies, fingers tingled, he barked, he wind. He tried to eat the fucking microphone. Until Ray, laughing yanked it on the cord impacted off. I Loo. We got gotta go. Rick and the Ravens banged up the songs basic three chord stop. The electric piano made that sweet slipping slide riff, the drums big dumb. The raucous four on the floor beat Jim closed, his eyes, belted up the chorus and felt the new fantasy. Taking shape excuted right now. Jim Collins from ray to be part of the band again not soon after the Turkey. Joint West Gig Rick. And the Ravens are playing high school graduation dance backing up, Sonny, and share it was June nineteen, sixty, five in the duo were just a month away from releasing their iconic single I got you babe, which would sit at the top of the pop charts for the majority of August? One of the band members had quit in advance of the GIG and they were contract it as a six piece, not five. If they didn't show up with six band members, their contract would be bunk and they wouldn't get paid. Rain needed fillon. Jim Seemed to enjoy his moment onstage in Santa Monica even better. He wouldn't have to do anything at this GIG. Ray would give him a guitar hold, and they'd run a cord to it, but they wouldn't plug him in -rageous needed someone who looked the part and God damn it if anyone looked like a rock and roller in nineteen, sixty five, it was Jim Morrison. The Sun Kissed Mind Altered Venice King. Jim Accepted Shit this rockstar. Stage fantasy might be easier than he thought the idea inspired him, and he started to write his own lyrics along with some rudimentary melodies, recite the lyrics like poetry on the Venice Boardwalk and seeing them like songs from atop the roof of the Westminster building. The third time the Ray s Jim thome joined, was the one that took ray bumped into Jim on the beach in Venice Jim told him he was working on songs. He Sang Moonlight drive to Ray. Let's swim to the moon. Let's climb to the tide penetrate the moment that the city sleeps to hide. Eric caught it immediately poetry. Into boop a voice that voice Jim Morrison's voice, a crooner's voice, but a crooner's voice on the verge something, crazy and dangerous Graham's gender joined the band for Real Ray would net sing lead me more, and he could focus on the kice. Raise brothers. Rick and Jim were also in the band, but they didn't get. Jim's lyrics didn't get gyms five. Jim was known as opposed a flake. He was an aimless drifter. Who would only way them down with his ponderous lyrics, overwrought psychedelics Sinatra's. When. They bailed on the Band Rain Jim picked up John Dinsmore on drums and Robby Krieger Guitar, both from raise meditation class. Robbing was a tender nineteen years old. They didn't have a bass player, but ray work double time to make up for. He discovered the fender keyboard bass, which he played with his left hand while he played his Vox Oregon with rain. The doors would take that sweet sixties, electric piano and organ poppet twisted up. Distort it as the songs now era were swirls of Watercolor on paper, and the doors were a big drop from a pipette that sent the colors really. Songs like question mark in the mysterious ninety six tears Sam Sham, and the Pharaohs wooly bully, possibly the grace recorded of ball time songs, goatee tedium. Jeez, green onions, Rivera's California's San, the animals house of the rising sun, the castaways liar liar, but the door is knew that one of the greatest assets would also prove to be one of the biggest diabilities. Jim Morrison was going to be hell of a front man, but he was a wild, wild, on-stage, wild, offstage, uncontrollable on his own trip, running fast from past inside the wanted to live lamb and cage. He wanted to challenge others, but he didn't WANNA be challenged by any. She would help make doors famous cement them in the Pantheon of rock music forever, but he would also jeopardize the band's career at times. It seemed like he'd end their career. He provoke audiences. Provoke cops offend shock. He was so volatile he wouldn't even think twice about pulling a knife on a girlfriend who dared to talent what he didn't WanNa hear! Rosanna white wanted to scream. Was She was worried? It would just make things worse. She didn't want to Spook Morrison didn't want to enrage him any more than she already had didn't want to ask Ole. What his grip was tight, the knife blade was sure she was worried that he was actually cutting her that the blames piercing your skin that she bleed already apartment. Jim Morrison beaver for dead. If ever! There was a time to scream. Will be now. Rosanna has seen this sort of behaviour. Jim before he would whisper sweet nothings in one woman, and then turn around and become verbally abusive the next, but in the past was all talk threats. He'd never been physical with her in this way. This was different, scared the shit out of her. Jim Held Rosanna tight against his bare chest. He really wore sure walked around like God's gift. Chess assumed everyone wanted a good long look. He held her tight by a wrist. Her arm twisted around to her back in her back, pulled into his chest. He 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 shower carving implement tight against. Jim Dared, her data to say it again dared or to insulted again who the fuck did she think she was? Brazilian just called him out on his bullshit once and for all Jim would just carry on like some profound poet day after day pacing around her apartment every day that he happened to be there shirtless stone out of his mind, reciting someone else's poetry, Shibli or worse, reciting his own shitty poetry, and seriously who is she? Who is he who? The fuck was Jim? Morrison say anything to her about anything Jim. have been crashing on and off. Off At her apartment for months, using her eating, her food sleeping in her bed. If anyone should be, getting upset should be Rosanna. When he wasn't at her place, he was Katie Miller's place. One of Roseanne is art school friends Jimmy's Katie in the same way. She let him borrow her car. And he disappear for days comeback, talk sweet, and then go full asshole all over again, but two girls were enough for Jim. He needed more. More mortar to Mooch off of mortar wrap around his finger mortar. Yell at when things didn't go his way. His third steady around this time was Pamela Courson real maternal type. Originally from we'd California, she was eighteen when he met her. Fellow Military Brat Pamela would be a constant long-term steady in gyms, most well known girlfriend over the course of the rest of his life, but to Rosanna, she was just another. One of the chicks screwed around. Around with when he wasn't a resent his place, he was at Katie's or Pamelas. He was predictable, Jim didn't work, didn't go to school. Just got super high all the time and rehearsed with his band the doors he told Rosanna another dumb ass poetry reference if she recalled correctly sure Jim was sexy, and could be sweet, but most of the time he didn't seem genuine like he was playing a role putting her on putting everyone on. So, she called him Oh, told him he was phony. Jim Or the edge? Was Actually Jimbo. It helped pushed him over the edge Jimbo Gun. His head fed into his anxieties. Fears insecurities resent a hated it. When Jimbo came over would just invite him over like it was his apartment. He'd have a six pack dangling off his finger, a lit joint hanging from his cracked lips. He was Pudgy and bearded, and scratched himself all the time he get hammered and spent some racist nonsense. What he thought were the actual lyrics to Louis Louis did that gross dude thing where he'd snort up a huge wad of mucus in his mouth, and then look around for place to spit it. Jim was at his most ridiculous with Jimbo around in his most entitled. We're so much like he told Jim. I. Know exactly how you're feeling and I'll tell you. We gotta do with these chicks. You keep them in their place. where else the walk all over you? You Jim fucking Mars man, the you bands can be huge. You're going to be the biggest fucking rock and roller renewed world. Any of these chicks would be lucky to have. You of the power needed faulk and show them. You have the Bauer. Jimbo wasn't there when Rosanna called? Jim Stoned Poser, but he didn't have to. He had planted the seed. Jim felt the carving knife pressing slightly into Roseanne belly, and he thought about it for a moment thought about going through with it, cutting her slicing her guiding her. It was partially drugs. He couldn't even remember all the things he had chewed and swallowed and smoke that day, and partially the Shit Jimbo sat him harshly Jim, zone delusion the he could just caught a person right here in her apartment and walk away from it. He leaned in Zana's year. I cut you watch. You whispered. Not The phony navel-gazing poetic whisper he'd used to get her in bed, but one that came from a darker place in intended to frighten her. It ended seconds later when John Ends. Burr walked into the apartment with Katie the spell was broken. Jim Let Rosanna go laughed off. The knife laughed off the threats. The whole thing was one big gag goof not to resent. She had seen through Jim. Morrison once before. Is She saw through now? Jim fell disrespected. He also felt empowered by the knife and said like he was in control. He shrugged off. Zana's comments has bullshit. She was just jealousy wasn't a fake. He'd do disrespecting for now on. In fact, he disrespect, whoever and whatever he felt like. He hold a knife to the whole world. The doors soon started gigging on the sunset Strip la, where they want some hard fought auditions to get regular gigs almost as soon as did. Jim held up. The knife challenged them. All bit the hand that fed him. What would the sunset strip clubs going to do about it? Simple in fire is asked the whole ban. As soon as the door is secured a legendary gig playing at the whisky, a go go Jim Morrison would open his big mouth, and the whole thing would come crashing down. I'm Jay Brennan.

I'm going to tell you though and the crimes he committed were insane. He shot a random cabbie in the back of the head on the San Francisco street corner. He slashed to death backseat lovers picnicking couples and for brief period in thousand nine hundred sixty nine his legend grip the nation. You already know him by many names, the lizard king. Mr. Mojo rising JIMBO but never before. By his original, alternate identity zodiac killer until this morning's news started to break this alternate identity was a secret the idea that this worldwide recognizable rockstar could also be one of America's most tourists, serial killers was and still is fashionable. But we've seen this kind of double life our culture before as recently as two thousand fourteen when we learned that a star tied-in Aaron Hernandez from history's most successful NFL franchise. New England Patriots was a gang banging drug dealing murderer. And let us not forget OJ. Simpson America's prom king who ended up slashing his way in infamy. It took awhile. But the unbelievable nature these stories eventually set in in the truth was accepted. It's unclear to me how long it will take for us to accept the truth of this story because right now, it just seems ridiculous that the fame zodiac killer was one of the most popular musicians of all time a musician. You made great music, and that music I played for you at the top of the show. Now wasn't great music. That was a preset Luke from my mellow Tron called mellow fast ways, be K to I played that loop because I can't afford the rights. It's my party by Lesley gore. Why would I play that specific slice of weepy jukebox cheese can afford it. Because that was the number one song in America on June fourth nineteen sixty three and that was a day that a pent up small town teenager in search of his own identity with the fire in his eyes a song and his heart. Struck a deal with the devil that would change history. Forever. On this episode mellow fast waves for murderous identity crisis. We be cheese one of the greatest frontmen of all time in the zone killer. Jake burnin this screen. Disgrace. Fuck you kid that pan to his father, even teenaged anger is voice was low and broody. His mother did her best to ignore the latest in a series of daily tensions between her son. And her husband by turning up Pappu on the transistor radio. Am busying herself with the dishes. The kid was home in Alameda, California after a year junior college in Florida, and he dared to bring up transferring to art school over my dead body was his father's predictable response. His dad was a navy, man. A Rear Admiral and wanted something professional for his son James if not the military than law score an MBA he'd even settled for a liberal arts degree, if his son promised to get a masters later to James's parents life was ally. Raise the military brat all the moving in the new schools James had seen the military industrial borders of suburbia in he had no place there. Without friends with parents. He didn't understand he was thoroughly alienated. And so he turned inward became an artist. His curiosity was bottomless. He ready European philosophers Nici and William Blake by sixteen sixteen. Have you read me Jean Blake? I've tried as an adult, and let's just say a little more comfortable with the musings of the great American philosophers Daffy duck Bill Murray, they're more my speed. By the time James was a senior his English teacher made a habit of researching his student Billy Agassi's to make sure James wasn't just inventing titles to support his papers. The joke was on teach. The citations were real medieval pamphlets about demon -nology only available from the library of congress. James was an occasional d student, but only because school is a drag. He found it to be crushingly boudoir just like his family. There's no future in the arts. You don't have the talent Rear Admiral shouted. Why couldn't they recognize the brilliance inside him? He stormed up to his bedroom. Slammed the door fuck them. Then you realized their picket fence was a cage. The grand mysteries the dark depths of the universe. James new. That's where the truth was parents would never look beyond the veil. But he would he'd already started. James grabbed Alastair Crowley's magic in theory and practice from his bookshelf. He was that deep. Now. The Satan is Crowley, the occultist Selena boulevard ski. James wanted to get high, but any smell would tip off the Rear Admiral lead to a good old corporal punishment ask kicking so James had to hang his head on the window to smoke. The joining just rolled his version of howling at the moon, like his hero blues man how and wolf. He leaned backwards over the sill spark the Jane thought about wolves lurks. That's evil evil is going on wrong. I'm warning you brother, you better watch happy home. Once high James ducked back inside and started a new Crowley chapter. Entitled of the bloody sacrifice matters cognate. He read the first ethical lesson in the bible is it. The only sacrifice pleasing Lord is the sacrifice of blood for the highest spiritual. Working one must choose that victim, which contains the greatest in purist force. Hanging outside of the window. He took another hit the Oji Mendocino. We cross James soft palate. The poetry of dark ritual passed his lips. He had a moment of clarity pins and needles all around his head like a hand rising from his throat to grab his brain. His crouch shocker was on fire with the dark spirit energy. That was it. He knew who he was and what he had to do in that instant he understood that cheat codes written into morality by God for those willing to play by the devils. Rules. James wandered over to his record player and put how and wolf on the turntable. Wolff's raspy demonic voice enraptured, very stone. Young James, please. Write my mother, tell her the shape on tell it apprai- for sun. Forgive me for my sins. What is mom would never forgive him for what he was about to do. Now that what is father? It didn't matter. He was nobody saw he was no longer there. James? He was simply, Jim. It was June third nineteen sixty three in Jim Morrison at broke on through to the other side and blowing the doors of his perception wide open the next day. He took off. Before we split he lifted the twenty two pistol from the family gun cabinet. It was a woman's weapon. Stoorikhel piece the Rear Admiral would never miss it. There was a chance he missed. The rope. The jack-knifed from the garage where the pair of old military issue wing Walker boots. Jim Jim didn't care. He bought a ticket on the first thing smoke in a greyhound headed south the driver parked at the rest area. Overlooking beach ten minutes you holler next. Stop. Lumpar? Jim looked out his window and laugh dryly at his look it was senior skip day for the local high school kids, and there they were down on the dunes free range hunting season, Jim thought all the lush beauty of pure American youth. He honed in on flirty couple of walking away from the crowd somewhere private Jim presumed. He shouldered his knapsack and slipped off the bus before we lost them. Bob Domingos, Linda Edwards, her straight out of central casting. American is apple pie high school seniors already engaged to be married. Good kids pure at least for a while. Like all kids. They wanted to do what comes natural. That's why it's called what comes natural. They were engaged now. And it was senior skip day. One thing was indeed going to lead to another thing. And that thing may gyms chess well with excitement that thing is what Jim stock Bob, and Linda like pray while the Linda's pent-up urges made them the most alive and Alister Crowley had told Jim that if he stole the life from them through sacrificial rites, he could steal their lighting energy bottle it into his own being make their souls worked for him from the other side. And with this unnatural power Jim knew he could escape his family's cage in one day achieve greatness. He caught Bob and Linden the act cherries half popped. He pulled out the dainty twenty two Jim at the drop on when he emerged from the dunes. They saw the gun in pissed themselves and fear. Jim held them at gunpoint worn the shut the fuck up. He instructed them to get on their feet. Go sit on the driftwood a few steps to the right? He then clumsily tied them up with rope. It was Jim's first time just like a would have been there's. Because he was nervous. He got sloppy. Bob, and Linda slipped the bonds ran for it. Jim saw his dream slipping away with every footfall shit. He planted his father's old wing Walker boots in the sand. There were ten and a half a little tight on Jim size eleven feet, but they anchored him to the ground. Like they were supposed to just like the elegant pistol, the boots did with the stolen. Rope. Didn't got the job though. Pop pop pop with bullets down when Bob. And. If these kids were via Kong dad would be proud Jim thought. No ritual. Bloodletting? He couldn't let the kills be for nothing. He took a b collective himself. There was no time to wallow in the mire. Jim drag Bob and Linda into a rotting beach shack on the other side of the nearest dune inside their young. Love would become a funeral pyre Jimmy to stake, a claim to this flame fire magic transfer the energy of the recently departed to him there killer. He took the Jack knife the last of his stolen tools in curved a spell of his own to the softwood. He took the m in the our from his last name Morrison and brought them to the front, dispel, Mr.. He took the m and the J from his first name Jim and out of the two os Morrison. The spell Mojo. Finally, he took the remaining letters r I s I n. And bunch them together. Dispel Reisen, and they had it plain as the red on the devils, dick. Mr. Mojo rising. In the summer of sixty six Jim hidden is bedroom again. But this bedroom was different from sold digs back at the rear admirals house. She was living in Venice beach studio -partment, he blocked out the windows. Listen to the blues and did so much LSD could reasonably qualify as a main source of his bodily fluids while there. He poured psychedelic truth into a small notebook feverishly drafting poem after poem for what he didn't know. But I kept his mind off of killing. After the ninety disappeared from the family house to make his first kill he returned home. Miraculously the Rear Admiral gave in loud, Jim to transfer into UCLA as a film student. He made exactly one film while at school, but he did graduate. After graduation, his brain scrambled by too much acid in too much else to Crowley, still a slave to the dark arts looking to make his way in the world and to establish his own identity while now on his own he quietly disowned his family in fully embraced the behin lifestyle. He ran into a college buddy on the beach, a keyboard player named Raymond's Eric he shared his poems with him in Ray, recognize them as nothing short of magical soon Jim found himself and raise Little Rock and roll compo alongside two other inspired musicians Robby Krieger guitar and John dens on drums. They call themselves the doors, Ray, admit Robbie and John and a meditation retreat, which Jim thought was lame. Jim wasn't into the self care bullshit. He wanted sensory overload at all times, we want the world, and we want it now. Jim took to the Mike and imagine what howling wolf would sound like reciting, the evil musings of Alister Crowley. What came out was dark mystical poetic in powerful gyms musical. Inexperience was no obstacle in. No time the doors became the house band at the whisky go go nightclub on L A's sunset strip opening for every headliner between may twenty third and August twenty first they released their first single in November break on through. Jim had broken through years earlier, and he'd tried to hide. But though is impossible now that he had a stage. The door is notoriety spread and their popularity exploded still Jim founded impossible to get from us. If what he got for murder that feeling from killing Bob, and Linda he couldn't shake it? It was stronger than the feeling he felt on stage or in the studio he loved playing music, but the payoff was different. Maybe because he wasn't as confident of performer as one would think if he had more faith in himself as a musician lies might have been saved. But the rear admirals words rang out his drug adult head constantly. You don't have the talents on it. Fuck with Jim even though he's making a name for himself. But for how long gyms goal was making do on our Crowley's promise attornal life. Not pop stardom real greatness, transcendence the music just wasn't enough. So just weeks before the doors first single release Jim felt the need to kill again. He drove a riverside and LA sub. His victim would be Sherry Joe Bates another poster child for American Beauty a Twentieth Century, Fox. She caught his eye at the whisky one night and ever since in his then still none of us down time. He followed her learned her routines. She was laid at her college library in Jim Morrison was waiting. Raise keys played gyms. Mine like the organ a pig church. Demonic voice spoke out Latin whispered into his ear James do renounce the Lord of Kristen dome. God, colonial pigs and periods. Dogs and capitalist. Pop. Do. Jim whisper back. Do you believe this God must be overthrown? I do. Jim says he removed the distributor cap from Sherry. Joe's car insuring that our car wouldn't start he tropes down out of sight waited somewhere. You're by the baby cried from an open window, Sherry, Joe, exited the library, Mr. Mojo rising hit quietly behind her car coiled in the TAC move Sherry Joe stepped into her driver's seat. Her car would start. She realized something was wrong stepped out. Jim sprang from behind tackled. Beat her perfect body, bloody. Jim is manic fury has memory wires crossed this murder. Brought on the total recall the lompoc kill from three years before his brain synapses firing off familiar sound of those twenty two shots from us earlier replaced by the sound of his fist pounding Sherry just flesh. All he heard gunshots gunshots. The voice of the devil spring this year. James Douglas Morrison. Do you renounce Jesus? Sherry Joe screen that nobody king and then the chaos fists on her flesh satellite a flurry of gunshots. I do renounce and all his works. His knuckles to ribs. Mid allowed crack. During all his promises. More punches more cracks, and she still hadn't gone limp. James douglas. We pledge you soul to Satan. It nominate the oddly feely as sin. James Douglas, going evil, and they Lucifer be with you. With those words whispered hail, Satan, gyms transformation was complete his soul had been sold for what it wasn't entirely clear fame transcendence beyond the bourgeois status quo eternal life, any combination of those things Jim didn't know, but he was certainly one thing the power that raged through them at the moment was like an electric coil pulled type from the tips of his toes to the crown of his skull. It's surged provided a powerful manic high-voltage confidence it made them feel as though he could do anything Jim thought to himself that was it. This was all the poets raved about that feeling the one scientists in the strategist could never figure out, but that the words miss hat on lock that thing that inspired countless artists painters songwriters directors to keep going back to the welfare to try to capture to express that feeling. This was in. In love. Jim dropped Sherry Joe asphalt and slid himself down the side of the car seat on the ground next to his kill. He was exhausted. He rifled through Sherry Jo's purse for smokes found one. They're lighter too deep cleansing drag tilted his head back against the car. Next held them pulled the small no pad pencil. He carried with him everywhere. Begin writing. Reaching your head with the cold sudden fury and the loss of God in hopeless night out here in the perimeter. There are no stars out here. We is stone macula it. Now is it? There were no stars are empty hollow like him. But unlike his words, the stars were small words were bigger they could be anything, which is what the scientists and the astrologist never understood about love with words, the possibilities for love were limitless science was fixed. Limiting compared to poetry science bullshit poetry gave wings to our desires astrology. The zodiac signs of compatibility was all bunk made up to sell newspapers to board suburban house wise, like his mom zodiac signs of predicted. How Jim now felt about Sherri, Joe what she meant to him. Now. Now that she become his kill was the goddamn Sunday morning. Horoscope gonna read Aries is a fellow fireside for you. Jim Morrison the Sagittarius you'll find a worthy partner, mentally and physically the chemistry between you is awesome. And when you peers her skull with the sharp end of your knife. You'll know you've found your soul me. Jim had no idea when Sherry Joe was born. But he knew it didn't matter for shit. He knew that she was for him his girl. He knew that their chemistry was quote, unquote. Awesome. He pulled her dead body over closer to him and placed her bloody skull on his lap. He felt for he really did something deep connection. It was different than the feeling. He had for Bob, and Linda that was more bloodlust craven clumsy like it is when you lose your virginity was Sherry Joe. It was different. The kill had a rhythm to it like great sex with an experienced partner. Was it because they'd hooked up after Jim. And formerly sealed the deal in his mind with devil before it gotten high on Satan, stoned immaculate into a deeper understanding of the cosmos and the power of his poetry before he fully understood the futility of Dodd science and the stars. And what are the astrologist know that the poets didn't nothing Jim was in love and Satan had his back. Fuck with the horoscope said, Sherry Joe is his first love and no disrespect to Bob and Linda under the empty stars that night, Sherry Joe's Jim Morrison's. First zodiac kill. We'll be right back. After this word word word. Thirty million Americans are living with diabetes and more than eighty four million are living with prediabetes. Why has this disease become such a widespread health crisis? It's baritone day. Thurston host of spit today. We're coming to you live from south by south west with Connick musician, Tim McGraw, Tracey Brown and Julia who we? Get the latest on the progress that's being made against this silent epidemic.

What if you could have a twenty four seven personal care team that understood your numbers? Understood. Your genetics are pops up on the screen for this movie. And my daughter looked at me. Jeez. Dad because I was about forty five pounds heavier. You know, my kids are old enough to notice the lifestyle that I'm leading spit is an iheartradio podcast, which three and me. Listen to the latest episode in the iheartradio app. Wherever you get your favorite shows. Hey, guys, this is Ross school and from the podcast and the writer is I've written with hundreds of writers and artists over the years, and my favorite part of each session is the first hour when we catch up about life in the industry, politics composition. Whatever. If you ask me songwriters or some of the most worldly and intelligent people. I've ever come across. So this is a journey of finding out who the people are who write the songs you can listen to this podcast for free right now by searching for and the writer is on iheartradio. Mr. Mojo rising carving he'd made after the Bob and Linda murders in lompoc, Sherry Joe's death wasn't tied to the killer who would become known as zodiac for years. When Bob and Linda's bodies were eventually discovered, the Mr. Mojo rising carving went unnoticed because it had no significance because of the time the doors weren't yet. A ban the song was in get a hit. It was just the line. Jim Morrison's head that. He would later right into the lyrics for the song Ellie woman. So at the time it just looked like some teenager defeating. So the clue was missed until now and for Jim Morrison a young man who craved recognition who's goal. It was was to be infamous whose prime motivation for killing in the first place was to build an army of souls to fight for him in perpetuity to achieve his twisted. Notion of greatness, the fact that thirties were too stupid to connect him to those first few kills it really pissed them off. It wasn't until nineteen seventy that authorities even began to piece together the murders. San Francisco police believe the killer racked up five confirmed kills between December nineteen sixty eight and on Tober nine. Nine hundred sixty nine a couple on lake Herman road Venetia one in blue rock springs park in Vallejo. One more in Napa county and a cabbie in the Pacific Heights neighborhood of San Francisco, they didn't even know about Bob, and Linda, and Sherry Joe this infuriated Jim he wanted the credit for all those kills. And then some he later claimed the public that he was responsible for total thirty seven murders. Jim couldn't deal with the slowness of the San Francisco detective. So he did what he did. Best turn to words poetry a twisted poetry, poetry nonetheless. He started to write letters to the press to claim responsibility for the murders. So the poetry needed to be twisted to conceal his identity. Jim Morrison the fame or couldn't resist the rush of notoriety. These claims came and letters call cryptograms sent to the San Francisco Chronicle and other newspapers word games like Mr. Mojo rise in. How did a hell of a lot more complex basic cryptograms are substitution codes each letter replaces another as become bees bees become season. So on Jim digging on the Sherry Joe kill the ironic astrological poetry penned, while she laid dead on his lap, her soul lovingly transferred, his return ity as an Obama signed his letter with z for zodiac any peppered is cryptograms with pages. Full zodiac occult symbols. As a subversive. Fuck you to the strategist from Jim the poet. Jim hinted at his cryptogram fascination and the doors tune soul kitchen while your fingers weave quick minarets speak in secret alphabets, his psychotic PR made the front page of the San Francisco Chronicle as well as other local papers taunting the nation into an obsession with maniac. He sent the first cryptogram in three pieces to three separate California papers demanding may be published or he would drive around the state committing random drive-by shootings. And it works like gangbusters all three papers printed the cipher when finally cracked read. I like killing people it is more fun than killing wild game in the forest because man is the most dangerous animal of all the best part is that when I die will be reborn in paradise. And all that I have killed will become my slaves. When he went out is zoned EAC. Jim would alter is appearance as best. He could witness descriptions vary in hair-color in length, maybe because he had his famous locks tied back or under a net or a wig zodiac sketches include eyeglasses, but this was to help preserve his image as fame rose more telling me testimony, puts zodiacs height at around five ten and Jim was five eleven weight estimates for zodiac ranged from one hundred eighty pounds two hundred pounds GM was one hundred eighty and more what he was drinking heavily which is more often than not. But the clue that always tied Jim in the zodiac together the one we can now fully appreciate was his dad the Rear, Admiral. And wing Walker boots the big ten and a half the ones that left. The boot prints that were found at several the murder scenes and the lead investigators suspect that the zodiac had a military background this ODI didn't what is dad did. And the boots were the last thing connecting James Morrison, aka Jim Morrison, aka the zodiac killer from his old life to his new one. He was a killer. Just like dear old, dad. Jim morrison's. Father George have been the military commander the Gulf Tonkin. Shady nineteen sixty four false flag operation by the US government to justify escalating, the Vietnam war. Yes. Jim Morrison's dad, basically started the Vietnam war. This is a fact look it up. And it was a fact that drove Jim crazy. He literally sold his soul for his art. But even when it came to spilling blood. He was stuck in his father's shadow, his news Odia persona could never approached that body count. But he could try how did he manage this? Double life. It was easier than you think when you're a notoriously unreliable rockstar. Nobody questions it when you disappear for a couple days between gigs one hand washes, see other. Let's lay out the timeline in December sixty eight the doors played a local show at the forum in Inglewood afterward. Jim was on his own with no gigs for two weeks. That's opportunity. The band had started recording their next out soft parade and the sessions when are going well Jim needed a fix. That's motive one week later. The lake Herman road murders happen with the killing of Betty, Lou Jenson, David Faraday, then on July. First nineteen sixty nine the doors returned to California from a stint in Mexico City for too much needed days off, the excruciating half million dollar eight month production of soft parade was finally wrapped. And Jim had a break and needed it. Because he was an insecure wreck he had no idea the album was good or not in feared. Like most sensitive artists that the critics would tear them apart. So Jim needed something soothing again before the upcoming release and nothing soothe him more or gave him more satisfaction or sense of purpose than killing than adding to his soul Bank. So after the recording soft parade he was motivated to kill it with time off he had the opportunity to go out and quenches blood thirst, which led to the murder, Darlene Farren on July fourth nineteen sixty-nine and blue rock springs after this zodiac place, the phone call to the cops another classic element of the serial killer profile desire to get caught in that recording. When played now, the cadence of the voice, the thinly-veiled hidden speech pattern. Sounds a lot. Like the spoken word poetry of one. Jim Morrison on his album of poems in American prayer. And with that phone, call a line was crossed the zodiac. The serial killer inside Jim was done watching Jim Morrison the rockstar. Inside gym, get the credit. The zodiac was more than that, a poet a soul shepherd a killer killer, and as far as he was concerned Jim Morrison, the rockstar was a phony a charlatan, whatever he was Jim was lost in a never ending identity crisis. It was coming to a boiling point in. This body wasn't big enough for the both of them. The killer awoke before dawn he put his boots on he took a face from the ancient gallery he walked on down the hall. At a show in Boston, JIMBO wax poetic with the crowd. Hey, listen, listen, listen, listen, man. Listen, I don't know how many of you people believe in the strategy. Yeah. That's right. That's right, misogyny. Agitators the most philosophical of all these. But anyway, I don't believe. I think it's bunch of bullshit. So. But I'll tell you this. I'll tell you this. I don't know what's going to happen. But I wanna have my kicks before the whole shit was up. All right. All right. In the fall of nineteen sixty nine the doors were deciding that high eighties. Ironically, for the sake of gyms health during that hiatus zodiac notched two more attacks in under a month by far splashy store for the first he dressed in a hood with zodiac simple, then hog tied and stabbed a couple on a picnic style. The statue perhaps for his first time. Bob. And the hood was even now because Jim space was just too famous. For the second attack. Keebler the brains out of a cabbie in Presidio heights, tore off the deadman's shirttails nailed the chronicles six fame. Hor was. Old murders. Preceded the reporting the doors out Mars hotel. But just a few weeks Jim knew he needed to fill the solving soul kitchen before the grueling studio sessions start in inevitably end with Jim again landing face down, the critics DEM soul crushing jackals ever since Morrison hotel came out. However, it was the zodiac in not Jim who became all talk. No action Suri. Jeez. The squares through the cryptograms he'd lay out on the newspapers with threats of blowing up buses and attacking children. But he never did Jim even leaked a little more. Zodiac news lyrics bloodstains the roof in the palm. She's Venice blood. My love in the terrible summer. But it was clear. The magic was fading. The art was winning now as gyms chance to free himself. This demon zodiac once and for all. Of gyms, many, friends and lovers the only one trusted with Pamela Courson. She had been the first to suggest you should quit the doors. Get away focus on this poetry. In other words, get into something real some semblance of a real life beyond the madness of being a rockstar serial killer. Jim didn't tell Pam use zodiac. Of course, he didn't have to even without knowing the truth. It was obvious the PAM's. It was to everyone else. Jim needed help the two made plans to limit France. And it was this gay from the madness of rock and roll. And it was the escape from the mandates of murder. But before some blending Jim reunited with Ray Robbie John record an album Pele woman. They must have known. This was the band's last raw, even if they didn't say. When the album was done, Jim SUNA Paris. It had it with the stress of all this crisis of identity was he a killer or poet, the music murders was all too much. No, more souls to claim he claimed enough only soul left up for grabs. His own. The official take Jim Morrison died in a Paris bathtub on July third nineteen seventy-one. But there's a lot that officials in the public never knew. In fact, what Jim was really doing that bath was an exorcist. Paris was a last ditch attempt to save him from his demons, literally cafes accordions, all the cliches since Pam could know the extent of his depravity, even in Paris. He had a play cool and way he drank less wrote more poems chill. But all the while zodiac was screaming out from inside threatening burst through Jim and grab the world by shoulders Vialli shake it into an early grave. It's no coincidence. The finals Odia letter received during the killers active period, we the product mill room around the same time. Jim Morrison fled the United States. It was the last gasp. After months night finally came Jim saw his chance to exorcise demons escape the madness living as a serial killer get himself whenever that was James he assumed back. Pam would be friends Jim could do one last cult ritual. Undisturbed he would submerge himself on the cloth with bathtub sensory deprivation tank. Give fully under the surface chance. An entire original. Jim Morrison spell with drowning. It was dangerous. Stuck for extra on yourself? But Jim didn't see it that way he didn't want to be the Sony act. So he decided he wasn't he made a deal with the devil long ago for his fame, but he had always felt like a fraud because of it he was in a rockstar. He was a poet all those crimes, and there was someone else entirely a split personality. So it wasn't exercising himself. He was casting out. It at think monster is killer on the road. His brain is squirming like a toad take a long holiday. Let children play. If you give this man arrived. Sweet family will die killer on the road. Jim does does is slipped under water? He's saying forcefully. Not that the water in flood is face softly enough that he'd have breath for lyrics girl. You gotta love your, man. Take by the hand and make them understand the world on your depends. He wished Pam was there with now, but he hadn't shared this with her. It would have been too cruel. And it was too late. Riders in the storm and to this house were born into this world. We're thrown a dog without a bone an actor on a loan riders on the storm. An actor out on loan and the loan Kim, do no more performance just a final judgment wakeup time. Who the fuck aria? Jim morrison? That was for him to know for the rest of us to just find out now in Paris. He broke on three to the other side one last time in a trance passed out some merged Mr. module rise in went under the lizard king. Shed is skin the bathwater slipstreamed into his nostrils his lungs just like that. He was gone. Within hours. Pam found the body. No autopsy was performed some old timers like think he faked it. They slipped the bonds of fame wandered the earth like king. But someone died in that top the question is who was it. Jim morrison? Was it the zodiac freeing the real man leaving the real Jim Marson wander on? After the mysterious events of his death, perhaps as rebirth. Jim Morrison would have been surprised to learn how popular his music and words remain throughout the years. And he'd like the also be fascinated that some crazy bullshitter with a podcast would someday cues them of being the fucking zodiac killer as an April Fools joke. Which of course, is what yours truly just did. So poor went out for the real Jim Morrison and happy April Fool's day. I'm Jay Brennan. This is disgraceful. Alright.
