"The Canton audience was too quiet and freaked out by The Doors that night. The minister's daughter was sitting next to me and her mouth kept dropping open as Jim did gross things with the mic. During 'Light My Fire', Jim scowled down at me due to the bewildered audience response - and so cut the song short, and muttered (and I quote), "Let's get the fuck out of here," and stomped off-stage.

By that point, I was already deep into my writer's mode, about how to actually describe to readers what was going down. I needed to get home and write this up and get it typed up in the newsroom by 7:00 am - as well as finish up a paper for my mid-day English class."
