"I did see The Doors two more times: the summer of '68 and the summer of '70. Both times were in Vancouver, Canada. I don't remember much about the '68 concert performance - too stoned on LSD. Although, I believe they were promoting songs off of their 'Waiting for the Sun' album. I have more of a memory of the 1970 performance being that I was straight at the time - I believe that Albert King was the opening act and he was not received very well. So when The Doors came on, Jim Morrison was really quite upset about the whole thing. He got Albert King to come on stage and perform with the band on the fifth or sixth song. It wasn't a very good show. Jim Morrison had a full beard and was overweight. In between every song, the lights would go out for 3 or 4 minutes before they would perform another song."
