Favorite Quotes... Samuel Langhorne Clemens said this...

This next quote comes from

Samuel Langhorne Clemens.

Yeah don't worry, I didn't

know who the hell he was either lol

If only I'd kept my mouth shut!

(That line will be funny in a second!)

Mr. Clemens was also known by another name

one that we are ALL familiar with...

Mark Twain

A friend recently used this quote on me...

and now it has become yet another one

of my favorites right along with

Steven Tyler

Mike Tyson

John Lennon

Paulo Coelho


Johnny Carson

"It's better to keep your mouth shut

and appear stupid...

than open it

and remove all doubt!"


C'mon... how fuckin' funny AND TRUE... is that!!!

Jim Morrison... Gone... 50 years ago today... July 3, 2021

I recently purchased an amazing book...

The Collected Works of

Jim Morrison

The Collected Works of Jim Morrison

A must for every DOORS fan!

Today is the 50th anniversary...

the day we all lost Jim

July 3, 1971 - July 3, 2021

Just wanted to revisit an earlier blog post

of when my friend Billy & myself

had the chance to party...

with Jim

at his Paris graveside on

May 4, 1983.

It was an incredible day!

The Doors... Summer's Almost Gone... A Perfect Lyric

A Perfect Lyric

I recently purchased and received an

amazing collection of mostly unpublished

writings by the man himself...

Jim Morrison!

His family came forward with many

notebooks that Jim had used over the years...

for poetry... lyrics...

and general ramblings.

It's a must have for ANY Doors fan for sure!

The collected works of Jim Morrison


it got me to break out my Doors cd's...

and then I suddenly popped in

Waiting For The Sun

Waiting For The Sun... by THE DOORS

and as I was singing a song...

that I've probably sung 689 times

in my silly life...

I was just transformed

to another place and time.

It just made me feel like I was

a kid again listening to this album

for the very first time.

So fuckin' cool!

Absolutely love the entire album,

and while "Love Street"

is my favorite of the album...

this song... was the one...

to capture ALL of my attention...

Summer's Almost Gone

It's certainly one of their

lesser known songs... but when you sing,

and let that lyric sink into your brain...

wow... it's simply perfection!

It just rolls right off of your tongue.

It's so visual!

Morrison will always live with my friend

and me within the trip we took

to Paris France to drink with our

rock 'n roll hero.

May 4th, 1983

the day Billy & myself

partied with Jim Morrison!

Summer's Almost Gone

Summer's almost gone

Summer's almost gone

Almost gone

Yeah... it's almost gone

Where will we be

When the summer's gone

Morning found us calmly unaware

Noon burned gold into our hair

At night we swam the laughin' sea

When summer's gone

Where will we be

Where will we be

Where will we be

Summer's almost gone

Where will we be

Summer's almost gone

Summer's almost gone

We had some good times

But they're gone

The winter's coming on

Summer's almost gone
