The Doors – TV Interview (1969)

September 23, 2008 at 11:57 pm (Music)

I don’t know what show this was taken from but this is a 10-minute interview from 1969. Jim is smoking a cigar & definitely seems stoned on something – definitely a 60s hippie vibe emanating from him.
In the interview they discuss rock & roll as a religious experience and the difference between written & spoken poetry.
What is most fascinating about this interview is that right at the end Jim completely predicts the future of music – that in five years time, music would be more electronic and that one guy would get up on stage and use nothing but electronics & tapes to play music. That all came to pass within a few short years. Think of German artists like Klaus Schulze, Tangerine Dream and Kraftwerk, and then of course all the synth-pop artists later on, such as Gary Numan and OMD.
