I think Jerry Hopkins is credited with being the primary author for No Here Gets Out Alive which was what Oliver Stone basically used as a script for his movie, The Doors. You may be confusing that with Wonderland Avenue which Sugarman authored on his own (and a good read, too). If I remember correctly, Sugarman was a sorta consultant fo9r Hopkins because he basically grew up with the band from the age of 12 on.

July 30, 2015 on The Doors Albums From Worst To Best

I musta listened to American Prayer a thousand times growing up, and looking back wonder why in the hell I loved it so much. His tripped out poetry set to Doors music fed my high school weed buzz so perfectly on my walkman.

July 30, 2015 on The Doors Albums From Worst To Best

Tough call with your #1 and # 2 but in the end you must go with their debut which from start to finish an amazing example of California blues set in the unstable times of 1966 and impeccable.

And, to those who like to dismiss this band as overrated, criticize the media and Jim’s legend after his death as the reasons for the misplaced, overplayed attention, not Morrison’s and the band. It’s not like most of their albums were even considered masterpieces anyway. These were four guys who were committed to their approach and how they wanted it to represent themselves. Jim Morrison defines rock and roll at its most beautiful and disturbing core, and he was able to manifest both ends of that pendulum…sometimes at the same time, right down to his sweaty, week old worn leather pants and his defiance toward authority. This fucking guy gave in to no one but himself in the end, and although he’s a fool for dying before he should have, from the perspective of what rock and roll is and always has been, he represents it unlike no one else.

July 30, 2015 on Morrissey Says He Was Sexually Assaulted By San Francisco Airport Security

Ironically, it’s almost gotta Monaco feel to it. I like it. Right in their comfort zone.

The long version of Dancing Barefoot attached to the ‘When Love Comes to Town’ single. So good.

Least he coulda done was let us in on when this phantom album would drop. I have all this charcoal here that I bought specifically for this summer bbq CD and time is running out.

July 27, 2015 on Watch Kanye West Combat Transphobia And Promote Sock-Shoes On I Am Cait Premiere

Let’s be clear here…we are taking time out of our day to comment on a Twitter duel with Taylor Swift and Nicki Minaj. I think that pretty much sums up every possible undesirable scenario, Bloc. But thanks for shout out anyway….that Wrens album will be out soon then the world will find its axis again.

July 23, 2015 on Taylor Swift Apologizes To Nicki Minaj For VMAs Spat

I’m sure this will all get settled when they bump into each other at their lockers after school starts back up…they’ll have an OMG moment and have some gigs and gags over that awkward moment when Scottie offered Nicki his letter jacket at the end of the annual summer beach bonfire..

I just had to immediately play that song again. So good.

July 22, 2015 on Kurt Vile – “Pretty Pimpin” Video + b’lieve i’m goin down… Details

Some things are meant to stay as they were so many years ago, intact, not try to be recreated with some angle that simply doesn’t fit, and can’t even remotely capture the essence of how it was back at the height of its success.

This would be one of those things.

July 22, 2015 on N.W.A Reunion Tour Rumored With Eminem As Honorary Member

All this AOTW, PE, release date change from Tuesday to Friday, surprise drops, mixtapes coming from all sides talk. Then ya got, well, if its an AOTW it can’t be a PE and vice versa….man, I miss the days when I used to read my Rolling Stone/Spin mag reviews on new music, try and come up with enough change in my car ashtray to drive down to Cutler’s Records in my city and spend 2 hours picking out a tape for the ride home.

This is all getting way too sophisticated.

Nothing will ever beat The Monitor. It’s a nearly perfect album. It’s like The Wall for slackers.

You write that as if it’s a surprise that Kieth Richards created another catchy, bluesy song with a great hook over his twangy Fender. Main Offender and Talk is Cheap are flat out fantastic. I wish the Stones would strip down like he does on his albums.

July 16, 2015 on Keith Richards – “Trouble”

No shit! Let’s be real… O’connor dropping the “C” word is whats stirring this whole thing up anyway. Take that word out, and its just another random RS bashing tweet. A passionate Irish woman who has always spoken her mind to a fault said c*nt when commenting on a Kardashian. Oh, the horror.
