Why did the Doors get kicked off Ed Sullivan?
It was 50 years ago today, September 17th, 1967, that the Doors had their one and only performance on The Ed Sullivan Show. The infamous banning occurred after a producer from the show asked the band to change a lyric in “Light My Fire” ‘Girl we couldn’t get much higher’ to something else.
Why did the Doors not have a bass player?
John Densmore played drums. Robby Krieger played guitar. Jim Morrison sang. That was it, and the guys have explained that the lack of a bass guitarist freed up sonic space and helped the group distinguish their sound from other late ’60s bands.
Why are the Doors so good?
The Doors were perhaps one of the most unconventional Los Angeles bands of the 1960s because they didn’t fit into the surf-music scene or the folk-rock craze. Influenced more by jazz than folk music, it was a hard-edged band, led by Morrison’s vocals and Manzarek’s soaring organ riffs. The Doors were musical loners.
