The legendary Doors drummer John Densmore is coming to town for a book signing at 2 p.m. this Saturday at Zia Records, 3370 East Speedway.

Phoenix New Times music writer Serene Dominic interviewed Densmore about his new book The Doors: Unhinged and shared some of Jim Morrison's insecurities regarding his musical talents and involvement with the band.
"Jim felt insecure about writing songs. He knew nothing about playing a chord on any instrument. He had words and he had melodies. So he said, 'Why don't we write everything together, split all the money, and give all the credit to The Doors instead of me as the lyricist. And why don't we have veto power in case anybody gets weird.' And I turned into Mr. Veto."

"I really lucked out. I stumbled into this network of record stores like Zia. And there's a few thousand of them, and they're getting a little boost because vinyl is coming back and they have diversified into posters, books, boxed sets, and there's a sense of community in these stores, which is kind of cool."
