Certainly one of the most memorable concerts from The Doors. Because it was in Hollywood, at The Hollywood Bowl, it was in color, summer of 1968. Part of a very crazy and chaotic year and chaotic decade (at least the late 1960s) and The Doors, certainly Jim Morrison represented this era, time and generation as well as it could be represented. America was in transition in the 1960s from the Leave it To Beaver 1950s where men were expected to work, get married, have kids and continue to work. Where women were expected to just get married and then stay home and raise their kids. But by the 1960s the Baby Boomers started coming of age and becoming young adults. And didn’t want their parents Leave it To beaver lifestyle and didn’t see everything in black and white, including most of the entertainment. And wanted to break out and create their own American culture and lifestyle. Ways of doing things and living and Jim Morrison I believe almost perfectly represents what this generation was going through back then.
