Robbie -- "I think it was the Byrds who started it."
John -- "They sure throw that word 'psychedelic' around."
Ray -- "That's become the catch phrase for the last half of the 1960's."
Jim -- "Yeeay, it used to be surrealistic or something. I mean it's just a name . . . It's music. You see, I mean, what could that possibly mean, you know? Psychedelic. What could that mean anyway?"
(Many have said dope is a common point of reference in your songs.)
Jim -- "Oh no, really? Wait a minute, what's dope? Name one song that mentions dope."
Ray -- "Not really, there's no reference to drugs."
Jon -- "Well, there are a whole lotta levels you can get it on. I mean I don't think people are going to run out and take dope after listening to our songs."
(Are drugs an important part of the creative process?)
--Jim "About drugs or anything else, I think everybody should do what they want, that's all."
Ray -- "Whatever the individual has to do to get those inner feelings out is great. Drink, smoke, meditate, any one of a million things."
Jim -- "Even celibacy."
Robby -- "But we certainly don't need drugs to dull our senses."
How their music is changing is a good deal easier for the Doors to talk about. Probably because there's no law against it.
Jim -- "The first album we cut in two weeks. Just came out at once, kindalike a jazz thing. Very straight recording, very little over-dubbing, just what we are in person. Like with 'The End' we did the voice at the same time with three instruments and used only two takes. That's primitive, man."
