In the beginning of December, I commissioned Stéphan Beauvais, from Paris, to do a drawing for me of Jim Morrison based on one of his sketches.

Yesterday, he showed me the final piece, and all I can say is that I am completely thrilled!!!

Richard LorenIt was the summer of 1966—at the height of the Cold War and Vietnam, with the Civil Rights Movement in full bloom—when 23-year-old Richard Loren embarked on a pop cultural journey with some of the most influential rock icons of the day. That transformative time was reflected in the revolutionary spirit of the music being made.

"Bob Dylan turned the Beatles on to some dope and we went from 'I Want to Hold Your Hand' to 'Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds,'" recalled Loren in an interview from his home in Nobleboro. "Rock was a movement then. It was the catalyst for change, the driving force behind the counter-culture."

The Doors Feast of Friends Ray Piano

The Doors (l-r: Jim Morrison, Robby Krieger, John Densmore, and Ray Manzarek) backstage on their 1968 tour in "Feast of Friends."

While definitely not for the casual fan, Feast of Friends offers hardcore Doors aficionados a treasure trove of rare and unreleased footage, all of it all glowingly restored. Shot with the band's cooperation while on their 1968 tour, the fly-on-the-wall documentary Feast of Friends was shelved once singer Jim Morrison—who would have turned 71 years old Monday—was arrested in Miami the next year for lewdness and profanity.

Whatever else he was—poet, rock god, philosopher—Jim Morrison consciously set himself up as a polarizing figure. The Rolling Stones made an act as the bad boys of rock 'n roll—but Jim Morrison lived it. He gave a voice to the Oedipus complex—in the most explicit way possible—with his song "The End." While he was still 16, in Las Vegas, he was arrested for public drunkenness and vagrancy. He was all but kicked off the Ed Sullivan Show for singing the line "Girl we couldn't get much higher," after being told to replace "higher" with "better." And then came his famous concert in Connecticut.

On this day, December 9, in 1967, at a concert in New Haven, Connecticut, Jim Morrison broke another barrier in the bad-boy rocker behavior, becoming the first musician arrested right on stage, in the middle of the concert.

In a large concert situation, I think historians are necessary because it gets to be more than just a musical event. It turns into a bit of a spectacle. I'm too objective about it. I like to just let it happen—direct it a little consciously, maybe, but just kind of follow the vibrations i get in each particular circumstances. We don't plan theatrics.

—Jim Morrison
