This week finds the boys on the run, after an ill-advised attempt to play John Dillinger and Pretty Boy Floyd, now recording their podcast from their current hideout, a waste-basket cabinet at a local Manhattan eatery.

Well they’re back at it again for an all new Podwits Podcast.  While enjoying a nice cool beverage in a safety-cup at their local convalescence home, the boys wax about the oldest American Civil War widow to die in 2008, and Brian’s 2010 trip to Père Lachaise Cemetery in Paris, which lead the boys over to: The […]

The boys somehow, by way of Vic Morrow […]

Treanor was the band’s road  manager from 1967 until the end in 1972, when the band, post Morrison’s  […]

(Dion’s review was posted on The Official Doors Facebook and Myspace pages in January, 2011) For hardcore Doors fans, attempting to locate a live recording of the band, aside from the official releases like “Alive She Cried” or “Absolutely Live”, (both which begot the double disc release of “The Doors, In Concert”), was next to […]
