OF THE LIZARD
There are already sites dedicated to Jim Morrison and the Doors out
there as good as I could ever make, no matter how great my admiration of the
poet and the band, and to make another one would just be redundant.
To assist you in finding some good ones, here's
Yahoo's Doors Entries.
Here is the Doors' official web site.

And now for some personal observations: in my own personal opinion, Jim
Morrison's best recorded studio work as a poet appeared on The Soft
Parade and Morrison Hotel (not counting An American Prayer),
but as a band, the Doors worked together best on The Doors and
L.A. Woman. I had my first musical
orgasm listening to The End for the very first time at 3 o'clock
in the morning on a caffeine buzz when I was fourteen and going to the
Indiana Academy for Science, Mathematics, and Humanities. It blew my mind,
shifted my paradigm, rocked my world... from that time on I knew.
"The Severed Garden" from An American Prayer is my favorite of
the Doors' works, followed closely by "Rock Is Dead" from the recently
released box set. Why don't you tell
me what your favorites are?
