Thanks for everyone's response to this thread. I don't think it's too much to ask them to say hello or to just say thanks for paying for their living. (is that too harsh?) Anyway, it would be a problem to prove the authenticity of their quotes, but it would be nice if an effort was made. ...Again, i mean no disrespect, i totally appreciate this website and all who post here. Affiliated with the original Doors or not, but i do wish\hope that John, Robby, or Ray would say hello or to say "hey man we are here, we are listening and we care" Thankx ......Brad Aldy

There was probably a nicer way to put that, but I don't think you found it!
Don't worry about it! :cheers:

I was going to say that, I mean they could pretend to be any ordinary board member and we would'nt even know.

Maybe they could do a blog now and again or somethin?

John does one now and again on his site......it would be great to see Ray and Robby do the same.

Brad, I will answer the question on behalf of the Doors.  Sure, I have no right to, I'm just a fan like you, and everyone else here.

But, imagine if they posted here.  Imagine the amount of requests they would receive?  Can you sign my CD if I send it to you?  Or, my band is trying to get signed, can you listen to a CD?

A guy I know plays guitar for Paul McCartney, and he says they'll get into a limo, and the limo driver turns around and hands a tape to McCartney saying "If you could listen to this, it's my friends band...."  He gets that on a daily basis, from everyone he meets. 

Not to mention, so many fans would ask the same questions over and over.  To Robby:  Are you mad that your guitar section was cut from Spanish Caravan?  Why did you have a black eye on Smothers Brothers doing Touch Me?  And speaking of TOuch Me, did you really write that as "HIT ME."  Do you get bothered by Morrison overshadowing everyone?  Do you still talk to Densmore?  What do you and Ray do after the shows?

And, those are just the questions that popped into my head right now.  Imagine how crazy it would get.

Trust me, the guys probably log on once a week, maybe once a month, and they read the various posts.  WHy wouldn't they?  They were part of the best band in music history, and this is a website devoted to dissecting the songs, talking about the band (THEM), of course they would.  It would just be a circus to respond to everything, and the same questions, time and time again.



Personally, I don't think you are seeing the big picture. Smokey's assessment of the possiblitly makes aot of sense, Wsykybar. You are speaking from a limited/one-sided perspective. It is far easier to control posts and interviews online than conversation and requests in person. No cassette tapes from strangers can be exchanged and personal requests can be omitted.

As to the repeat on questions, that is the price one pays for one's success. The Doors know that. They obviously want to continue selling Doors, Riders and Tribal CDS, so it is definitely to their advantage to get more involved with the people supporting that music. Those same questions are the ones that Ray, Robby and John repeat over and over in stories when they talk to fans anyway, so I don't see that you have a valid point there. No, I really don't think you are seeing the big picture, and you usually do. Like someone else said, other great bands are doing it. The Doors should get on that band wagon! They are regular guys, not gods. Protecting them from their fans certainly can't be a good thing. :peace:

Don't have jobs? They all seem to have other projects going on. They may not have a 9 to 5 type thing going on but to say they don't have jobs seems to me to be wrong.



Yep but since we are the ones they are working for "sort of" i think it would be fair to give us an hour a week to talk to us.
