New Doors Movie Out Tomorrow: "When You're Strange"

As a huge Doors fan I've read,listened to and watched everything I can get my hands on related to Jim Morrison and the other guys in the band. Sorry, but in my opinion Robby, John, and Ray were talented but obviously it was Jim that made The Doors who they were.

I'll see this new film but I don't have high hopes for it being unique or different but I could sit and watch video clips of Jim for months on end and never tire of it. I love the fact that someone almost as sexy and beautiful and talented as Jim will be narrating the film (Johnny Depp). The reviews are very mixed, some think this film is the best, other think its more of the same.


P.S. I believe that's Jim Ladd's voice on this clip announcing Jim's death. Do you know who Jim Ladd is or is he just well-known out here in the LA area?

I do plan on watching it. I too have been hypnotized by them and the world these guys became famous in. It was a world of relatively no boundries and many talented musicians. When I was 10 or 12 was the first time I remember hearing them on the beach of our local lake. I have been enamored ever since. Thanks for sharing this.

I did not know who Jim Ladd was until I Googled his name. Sounds like he was our version of Larry Lujack out of Chicago's WLS.

I have to confess to being a part time Doors fan. Some of it I like, others, not so much. Morrison was just too weird for me.

I will watch the movie, but only because I watch almost all music related stuff.

This looks pretty good. Saw the trailer for it a while back and it seems like the surviving Doors want to tone down the image of Jim as full time drunken lout.

Barbara, I assume you know that your great banner is being cut off and only reads Classic Roc? It has been this way for a few days.

Dan said...

Yep that is right. Dont know how to fix but I bet Barbara does :-)

Dan, I still listen to Jim. He seems to know everybody and has lots of cool "old" rockers on his show.

Johnny G, I think his weirdness is what attracted me...and his attractiveness too :)

Sean, ya think? Hmmm. Good point.

Anon & Dan, it looks fine to me! I wonder what happened? I need to investigate. But looks normal to me.

It looks like your side banner has slid up and covers up some of your top banner.

Barbara said...

Dan, thanks, it looks okay to me but I will check it in a different browser.

My dad loves the doors but no matter how hard i try i cant get into classic rock. I think it doesn't appeal to me just because my dad listens to it, or maybe its just teenage Rhecouldad.
