Densmore & Krieger: Exclusive Interview
20 Mar 2023
In a fascinating exclusive interview with Dan Rather on AXS TV, John Densmore and Robby Krieger talk about meeting Jim Morrison for the very first time, how he stunned them with the magic of his poetic lyrics and how he was initially perceived as incredibly shy and reserved. They also discuss their process behind creating these iconic albums and songs, with their first album taking less than a week to record. You can watch the interview below.
'Lurking in this corner is this guy, bare feet, t-shirt and cords, really shy... Then he hands me some lyrics... I'm like, wow, I want to drum to that immediately.' - John Densmore
'Jim would hear a concert in his head, and all he had to do was write it down.' - Robby Krieger
