The Doors’ Jim Morrison Gets the Setlist Wrong – Real-Life ‘Spinal Tap’ Stories

 

One of the reasons why 'This is Spinal Tap' continues to resonate is because it's not only heavy metal groups on the downside of their career that experience real-life 'Spinal Tap' stories, but also bands that are trying to make a name for themselves on the road to classic rock immortality. Years before the brain trust behind the movie even came up with the concept, the Doors had a moment that could found its way into the script.

How Jim Morrison Inspired Matthew McConaughey’s ‘Dazed and Confused’ Catchphrase

For years now, the easiest way to do a Matthew McConaughey impression has been to imitate his 'Dazed and Confused' character, David Wooderson, by saying "Alright, alright, alright" in a goofy Southern drawl -- something McConaughey himself acknowledged when he uttered those magic words while picking up his Oscar and Golden Globe awards for 'Dallas Buyers Club.'

45 Years Ago: Ray Manzarek Fills in For a Passed Out Jim Morrison

Jim Morrison made a career of nodding off at inopportune moments. He passed out when the rest of the Doors were expecting him in the studio. He passed out in the studio. He passed out before concerts and after concerts.
