“They caught the sense of dread and menace that hung in the air like gunsmoke, and they did it with hypnotic cool.” –MOJO, December 1997.

Jim Morrison on his inspiration

“You can’t predict what’s going to happen. You just have to go with it. We’re trying to project our music, us, our ideas. Our ideas are in the songs, in the music.” –Jim Morrison
