When You're Strange

PBS showed the new Doors documentary last night 
on their American Masters program.  The doc is called 
When You're Strange & it's narrated by Johnny Depp.

I was pretty disappointed in the documentary itself but
there is a segment from the Singer Bowl in 1968 when 
The Who opened for The Doors.

No Who footage but there's a scene showing Morrison
milling about with the fans before the show & looking at 
a Who program on sale for a buck!  

I've seen the footage before & I always think, "Man, I'd
love to have that program."  The concert ended abruptly 
in a riot.

This new Doors doc has way too much sterile narration 
(no offense to Mr. Depp; it was written that way) & it 
made me appreciate the brilliance of TKAA.
