The Old Soldier watched The Doors perform live at the Hollywood Bowl in 1968 on YouTube last night. What a great concert!
My old computer was too slow to play YouTube videos; YouTube videos play just fine on my new (refurbished) computer. And last night I was thinking about karaoke at Nico’s in Little Italy last Saturday when I sang Light My Fire and I thought to myself, why not see and hear the real thing?
The band was at the height of its musical power at the Hollywood Bowl. I had my new ear buds in and with the new ear buds extension cord, I was able to swivel the monitor around, lay back against a couple of pillows on the sofa, sip on a couple of beers and enjoy the show. It was night and all the lights were off in the apartment. It was the perfect setup for a Doors concert. It was night at the Hollywood Bowl, too.
The band performed When The Music’s Over, The Unknown Soldier, Backdoor Man, Light My Fire, The End and other numbers. Morrison was in fine voice, singing, reciting poetry, exploding into spoken word freak outs and when he did dance he danced in that manic, strange way he danced in.
The music was tight and penetrating. The video played for just over an hour.
If you like The Doors, be sure to catch The Doors At The Hollywood Bowl on YouTube.
Hello hello hello, all you readers and writers of erotic flash fiction. The Old Soldier is reporting for duty.
I’m enjoying the milder spring weather and the quickness of my new computer. I still have a problem with broken links which causes images to X out; but I think I’ve found a solution and I’m slowly applying the solution when I come across an image that’s X-ed out. Yes, this magazine is definitely a work in progress. So, please excuse our dust; but there’s still plenty to enjoy.
