A Fly on the Wall and The Doors

Last night I had a invite to be a fly on the wall for an evening of events in Hollywood celebrating The Doors 40th Anniversary. The evening started at the Rainbow Bar and Grill having dinner with Lonn Friend and the lovely Judy... all while Bon Jovi Slippery When Wet played in the backgroud. Great conversation about Lonn's book and about Lonn. Ah, rock and roll you gotta love it! After dinner we strolled down to the Whiskey and into the VIP tent in the back for some drinks and smoozing. More conversation, more pressing the flesh. After a bit we headed downstairs to the Cat Club to see The Doors museum and Ray Manzarek. From there it was down the street to Book Soup to watch Nuno and Perry Farrell do an acoustic set. There is some great buzz on the project and recording those two are working on now. More great conversation right on the street. Rock and roll seems like it's always about stories and everybody has some storeis to tell. Lonn definitely has a world of them and you can get a taste in his book Life on Planet Rock.
