Six O’Clock Triple Shot – 12/1/14 Happy Birthday, John Densmore
(The Six O'Clock Triple Shot is a daily feature of three songs that share a common theme, heard weeknights on 94.9 WMMQ)
We celebrate a milestone birthday in Rock 'n' Roll this evening, as John Densmore turns 70. The Doors' drummer has been relatively quiet as of late, last performing live with the other surviving member of the band, Robby Krieger nearly one year ago for a one-off set. This show was on the heels of a 2013 book titled The Doors Unhinged; a documentary that explained his side of the legal battle with Krieger and the late Ray Manzarek over the use of the band's name for a tour. Densmore also has received high accolades for his achievements in theater and film. During the filming of Oliver Stone's 1990 The Doors biopic, Densmore served as a Technical Advisor, and has also made several appearances on TV and film sets as an actor.
Tonight, we hear three from The Doors to celebrate John Densmore's milestone day. Tune in for "Soul Kitchen", a live version of "Who Do You Love" recorded in 1970, and "Waiting For The Sun". It's tonight's Six O'Clock Triple Shot on 94.9 WMMQ!
