    Me too! I only got into the Doors properly when I was a teenager but The Beatles were everywhere as soon as I was listening to music.
    John Lennon was the guy who the older generation seemed to unanimously put on top of their hate list.That made him just about perfect to kids like me. :smile:

    My stand out favorite will always Be Roadhouse Blues. That base line of that song just screams sex. After that it becomes a close race between Five to One, Peace Frog, L'america, Hyacinth House, The Spy and land Ho (even though jim hated it) but so many more deserve a honorable mention.

    It is amazing to believe a man i admire, a man i almost feel connected to died almost a decade before i was born. His words and vision really do descent time

    67-68, right?

    Its amazing to think think their whole career lasted no more then 6 year. of course they tried to continue after Jims death, but it could never be the same

    I was just thinking 1968 was the year. I was 8 years old. I think it was the summer. Not sure. The Beatles White album too.
