I need someone who doesn't need me ...

The Doors made an instant classic album with L.A.Woman.

Whatever has Jim Morrison's voice on it, it is for me …

and also a music masterpiece.. with three of the best musicians of all time, John Densmore, Robbie Krieger and Ray Manzarek..

Top of the list, as drummer, guitarist and keyboard player…

The first song that got me into the Doors was "People are Strange" ..

That lyrics still make so much sense.. it seems he wrote them just thinking in you or me.. but obviously was about him..

Today I was listening to Chopin and suddenly remembered that Ray Manzarek uses a piece of him on the keyboard solo on Hyacinth House.

It is the Polonaise in A-flat major, Op. 53...

Now I remember When I went to Pere Lachaise cemetery to visit Jim's grave..

Surrounded by so many artist I admire …

Edith Piaf, Amadeo Modigliani, Oscar Wilde...

and not far away from Jim’s there was a majestic grave with a casket spray from the Polish Consulate.. and it was Frederic Chopin's..


  1. I'm with you on Morrison's voice....I actually was so mesmerized by it once I forgot what I was doing, fell off my bike and broke my arm.

    Not many people have that effect on me :)

  2. that's a funny one.. He was certainly a very special person..
    The voice comment is because not long ago I gave a chance to "An American Prayer", they put some music over him reciting, and I was really impressed..

    especially by "Ghost Song" and "Bird of Prey"... so good..
