It was fifty years ago today- July 3, 1968 The Doors released their third album Waiting For The Sun. The single “Hello, I Love You” from the album would become their second #1 single. The album would also go to #1 on the Billboard album chart. Another single ” The Unknown Soldier” would peak at #39. Other notable songs on the album are “Five To One”, “Love Street” “Not To Touch The Earth” and “We Could Be So Good Together.” Not one of their landmark albums- their best in my opinion were their first one- The Doors and their last one “LA Woman.” Jim Morrison would die in Paris exactly three years after the date of Waiting For The Sun’s release- July 3, 1971.
I had a dream once- about twenty years ago that Morrison showed up at the Grammy Awards and said that he was alive and well and making a comeback. I actually watched the Grammy Awards later that same month just to see if Jim showed up… he didn’t.
