#FF — Break on Through

on

PHOTO PROMPT © Liz Young

I love rock and roll and the musicians who make it. It’s more than just about the music to me; it’s about the origin stories of the songs. For example, I remember learning Ringo Starr’s offhand comment inspired, “A Hard Day’s Night.”

When I saw today’s image, I became curious. As google makes all information accessible – except for stuff like Assange and Snowdon passed on – I did a little digging. The time period and location of it is identical to when Jim Morrison was living in a rental near the recording studio – whose parking lot this is!

  2. Did i see you cheat a little? Was that fiction, I wonder. Anyways, it had your trademark alternative humour. Loved this!

    You have us all guessing. Truth or fiction? Both? Well, as you said, the clue is in the word “fiction.” 🙂

  7. He should have kept his eyes on the road his hands upon the wheel, instead of having chosen to let it roll baby roll, all night long?~ I know all about the Ringo story too being so a lifelon ’60’s obsesso.

    That is so clever, leaving us all wondering. At first I thought it was the intro to the story… Well done and original.

    I love a good origin story, even a fictional one. I read that Jim Morrison and another Door were hanging out on the beach. A beautiful girl walked by. Both were too shy to talk to her, so they went home and wrote “Hello, I Love You.” That one is true, at least according to the book I read.

    what a clever use of misdirection. the supposed-to-be introduction became the story itself. 🙂

      Plaridel, I think that’s the first time I’ve done it that way but it seemed to work well. Thank you 🙂

  25. I’m hooked by your idea of the origin stories of the songs – feels like a whole other universe, fiction or fact. I think some lyrics speak to us powerfully. Nicely done.
