The Doors Come Full Circle
John Tobler, Let It Rock, October 1972
ROCK JOURNALISTS ARE not born. Probably theyre not made either it doesnt work to tell someone that theyre a rock writer, although people do. The way to tell the real thing is whether a writer can communicate real enthusiasm for whoever he happens to be writing about. A pretty good percentage of those acts will have been favourites in prewriting days, and there remains with you a contagious excitement each time a new record is released, or a tour comes around. Thats especially so with American artists, and with my own favourites from pre-writing days the Doors.
