I’ve always been a big fan of The Doors, I’m also a fan of tribute bands who often work harder than the real deal playing the songs you’d love to hear rather than punting the new album.
It’s true that nothing is better than the real thing and a tribute will always be a tribute.
But in the case of The Doors Alive, who I try and see every time they play Glasgow, I don’t think you can get a better tribute in terms of authenticity and accuracy with the music and style of the original band.
The song Light My Fire in particular, its hypnotic, trippy, trance music, with the keyboard playing both organ melody and bass beat over the rolling guitar solo.
It takes me somewhere else. A couple of beers and I’m floating.
The time to hesitate is through .. Can’t wait!
Previous and more detailed review
After much anticipation and speculation, Game Of Thrones returns to tv in the UK this evening.
Actually it returned at 2am this morning, simultaneously broadcast with the first screening in the USA.
But what kinda saddo stays up for that on a school night?
But I did think about it for a nanosecond.
I was up bright and breezy at 630 and watched before I went to work.
Was it worth the wait?
Did it answer any big questions? Is Jon Snow alive or dead?
No, it answered nothing and kept us guessing, but isn’t that what part one was always going to do?
I don’t want to spoil it for anyone but be prepared for a few surprises.
One of them reminded me of a scene from The Shining.
You’ll know it when you see it.
I am the smile on your face
And the sparkle in your eyes
I am that tingle down below
I am the whisper in the darkness
And the warmth in the night
I am the one who makes it slow
You are the passion in my thrust
And the pleasure on my lips
As we snuggle in the afterglow
You are the fire in my breast
And the pride in my chest
And where you are, I will surely go
Deserves a quiet night.
Love this tune ..
