The Doors Alive – Half Moon Putney – 20th Jan 2017

Well it's been awhile…
 Apologies for delay in transmission…

So there we were in 1967 California – on the strip!
Seeing The Doors in their prime…

You all know how sensitive the sugar tongs can be! Well fast forward 50 years, to the Half Moon Putney (one of the best venues in London). And, it would appear we had a stowaway – because standing there, right in front of us on stage was Jim Morrison.

It was uncanny, we must have inadvertently brought him forward in time from half a century previous! And here he was making the best of it – he had managed to assemble Ray, Robbie and John to continue the good work in an alternate future London etc Etc EiTC…

So, as with all excellent tribute bands it was a case of close your eyes and it could’ve been the real deal! However, in this case it was – open your eyes and there was Jim Morrison standing right in front of you! Alive she cried! The Doors Alive!

What a fantastic recreation – a fitting tribute!

Who do you love? Break on through, Peace Frog, Hyacinth house, Spanish caravan, soul kitchen, strange days, tell all the people, backdoor man, 5 to 1, People are Strange, Light my Fire and many more…

Before long it was back to matters pertaining to time, as the two hours or so had passed in a flash and it was The End, then it was The End!

A fantastic set from a fantastic band at a fantastic venue!

Over…
