It’s nice to see some in the music business:
“People lost their virginity to this music, got high for the first time to this music,” Densmore said. “I’ve had people say kids died in Vietnam listening to this music, other people say they know someone who didn’t commit suicide because of this music. On stage, when we played these songs, they felt mysterious and magic. That’s not for rent.”
That’s Doors drummer John Densmore on his refusal to license “Break on Through (to the Other Side)” to Cadillac, even though they offered the Doors $15M for the song. Rock ‘n roll, man, rock ‘n roll.
