One time I was at a rock show and a server at the bar was wearing a vest with Jim Morrison’s picture on it (no shirt). Its design looked very similar to the image above. This guy walked past my friend and me and I, thinking I was a clever guy, started singing “RIDERS ON THE STORM” a little too loudly. For laffs!
This waiter, unfortunately, heard my hilarious aside. If you thought he would be amused you would be WRONG! He was enraged, immediately in my face and shouting “DO YOU WANT TO LEAVE, MOTHERFUCKER?” I can’t remember if there was also a threat of physical violence, but probably.
Anyway, names for Doors tribute bands have been a source of great amusement for me lately. I’ll be sitting around staring out my back door window, and SLAM! A Doors tribute band name will come to me. Here are some of my personal favorites. Feel free to contribute your own.
