The Doors

Actually the recent death of Rock 'n' Roll Hall-of-Famer Chuck Berry launched the conversation. For those unaware, Berry, a black man from St. Louis, Missouri, died at age 90 on March 18, 2017. Songwriter-guitar player-showman extraordinaire, Berry is best remembered for rock standards such as "Johnny B. Goode," Maybellene," "Roll over Beethoven," plus his signature 'Duck Walk,' a funky dance move like none other.

Back to the conversation: I was talking to a young, male college student about Berry's death. The student, threadbare jeans, shoulder-length hair, said he didn't know much about Berry. However, the student proclaimed he was "really into Jim Morrison and The Doors."
