So I know back in the day it was rampant in the 60s around SoCal...did Jim ever dabble in this? Just curious...

Adrienne.........NO! I am really laughing at this//// :D

Jim was one of the most spiritually advanced people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting.

The sixties was certainly a time of exploration though. I never knew anyone personally who had an attraction to that ...but I use to hear that Led Zeppelin was into the black arts and I know that is now even on the internet, easy to find and read about.

Candy, I know I'm laughing too LOL...I was just curious because I was reading on the internet about so many people who dabbled in that stuff back in the day...Led Zep sure but even others I hadn't really known about...I always thought of Jim as a good old southern boy...I know I'm kinda laughing at myself now too LOL...

It certainly was a time of investigating many things that had been hidden or forbidden. I think the unknown was beckoning to all of us in some way or another. Jim was a realist in a rather idealistic way. Looking into the darker side was rather forboding in the peace, love era of the sixties. The Doors were an entirely different set of people, and especially Jim. He was well read, and he understood things from that point of view. Hense, the dark poet.

Did you know that John Densmore wil be coming to Portland on his book tour....

Is that the only place he is going? Can someone ask him about the Paris tapes?

They usually don't let you spend any time with the artist. It's sign the book and you're pushed off. You may get a photo, but it's strictly business.

He's coming to Boston, but I don't plan to go. I'm not dealing with city traffic and no parking.

Candy I haven't pre-ordered the book yet just been busy but anyway I marked it on facebook that I'm going and on music millenium's page it says:
"Stop by the store and pre-order 'The Doors: Unhinged' for guaranteed admission to the book signing, plus you will get one of only 2500 limited edition hardback copies of the book!
ONE OF ONLY FOURTEEN SIGNINGS IN THE COUNTRY!
DENSMORE WILL SIGN 1 ADDITIONAL ITEM WITH PURCHASE OF THE BOOK
... HARDCOVER VERSION AVAILABLE EXCLUSIVELY AT INDIE STORES!"
Anyway it's a Sunday so I'm definately gonna go I can't wait! Plus I live right near that store...also interesting to note right around the corner is The Oregon Meditation Center http://www.dimcor.org/ I wonder if he's aware of that...also a lot of the houses in Portland are bungalows...it's a cool little area...

Oh, I wish he were coming to Dallas but his only stop in Texas is Austin and it is on a Tuesday.

Adrienne, please talk to him and thank for him for his hard earned money that supports the message board.

Manhime,

I put John's book tour schedule on here #9 on this topic. Perhaps someone you know on the board will be going to his book signing and ask him about the Paris tapes.

Good idea. Even better he can pool a few dimes by re-merging this forum with his and the Krieger + Manzarek ones.

Flashing, you need to fly over here and get to talking to John about that very idea. You'd get that moving I am sure!

Any chances you will be dropping by within the next two months? You could fly into Dallas, stay at my house, rent a car and head down to Austin....you are invited now.

That would be great!!! But I live in Europe...... Are there many Europeans here, we could have our own meeting?! Or if there would be cheap flight, I'd come to US. Jim and Satan.... LOL from here too.

It is really nice right now.........70's in the day and 50's at night........but it won't last too much longer......spring and fall in Texas is brief.....along with mild winters. All of the trees are in bloom, and tulips and petunias are in yards and hanging baskets.

Many people leave Texas because they can't manage the heat. The saying here is: Hell could not be any hotter than Texas in the summer....ahhhh...land of the bible belt.....imagine that!

Adrienne, you should have come to the Doorsfest........which was in 2002....in Hollywood. I have great memories of it. We really need another one.
But I doubt Kerry Humphries will put another one together in the US. But he did put one together in July, 2011 in Paris for Jim's 40th anniversary.
