The Doors at Danbury High School 1967
The Doors played in my high school auditorium in October 1967. I am 99% certain that the guy sitting at the far right in the audience is yours truly(back of head only). Morrison jumped off the stage in front of us at one point, and became infamous for damaging the stage with his microphone stand. I found this photo at the Western Connecticut State U. library's archives. My Alma Mater (Class of 1972). Read my memories of this concert by clicking on the "The Doors In Danbury" tab of this website.

I also saw this concert. I was on boot leave from the Navy. Sat in the front row of the balcony and it was great. I remember Morrison chopping the front of the stage with the microphone stand, but I thought a piece of it got chopped off. Always thought that until I read your observation of it the day after. I guess my eyes deceived me.


I've been amazed to discover how many people I know who saw the Doors that night. Rumor has it that the band ate at the Greek pizza place on West St, next to the Pershing Building(corner of West and Main St). Not sure if that is true..it's one of those myths that made the circuit at the time. Do you recall that "greasy spoon" of a restaurant? It was a favorite destination on a Saturday afternoon when everyone was making the rounds of "being seen" and hanging out at all the stores on Main St. It's the only restaurant I was ever asked to leave (i.e. kicked out).
