1988. Such a long time ago, almost 30 years; I still
can't believe how quickly time passes and memories fade.
In case you might feel the same, pick up Quarterly #19
(published in the fall of 1988) and re-read it. Some real
just been released: Jim's "Wilderness" poetry
book (check my -far too short- review), Tobler/Doe's
"The Doors in Their
Own Words", "The Doors in Europe" was due
out soon on VCR Cassette, and a few CDs appeared for
bootleg fanatics; at
that time mostly copied from used vinyl copies (sometimes
you could even hear the vinyl crackling in the
DQ 19 came with the usual mix of news, magazine excerpts
and reviews. For the first time someone (from
March 1968) analyzed Jim's signature - to an astonishing
conclusion. Have a look at my 'Paris Guide Part One', and
some ancient photos of a club meeting in 1988.
The article 'Bootlegging The Doors' might show you that
in 1988 there was nothing special available at all,
discs mentioned in the reviews became true rarities later
on. I really like Don Paulsen's interview with The Doors,
published in "Hit Parader" in 1967. Scott
Hyder's 'Symbolic Study - Passages of a Poet and Puer'
was written for the
C.G. Jung Institute and still makes for an interesting
read. 'An Afternoon with Jim Morrison', written by Judith
June 1968 for "Teenset Magazine", gives us a
rather personal look on Jim. Most of this interview was
Olivia's Place, 2615 Main Street, Jim's favourite soul
kitchen on Venice Beach, while Jim was eating chicken
liver with onions.
Check John Densmore's insightful phone interview with
Billy Pinnell (Part 3 - just in case you had missed Part
4 in DQ 20)
and then my review of the worst vinyl bootleg ever
published. Short but interesting is a story of Jim in
Frankfurt, sent to
be published in DQ 19 on page 38 by Doors fan Oliver
Lüth. Last but not least the first part of my interview
Krieger. Check the DQ website for a complete read here:
DQ 19 concluded with a small 1967 print advertising six
days of The Byrds (cancelled) and The Doors at the Whisky
Go Go. Wish we could have all been there!
For producing this magazine there weren't any computers
around - everything got typed on my ancient electric
and the bigger letters for headings used to be rub-off
letters on small plastic sheets or plastic lettering
No free poster but the issue came along with another
golden bumper sticker.
Enjoy your digital version and let us know what you think
... we will continue soon by publishing a digital version
of DQ 18.
CU and have fun!
Thanks to Kevin Chiotis for all of his work!
A splendid time is guaranteed for all!

aware that all addresses (private, phone) are certainly

Books, vinyl records, CDs and other stuff might not be
available anymore. Please do not respond to any of the
small ads or
blame anyone for incorrect details - all writers just did
their best they could back in 1988. And all this happened
computers, any emails and of course without the internet.
