The Doors Join College Friend Michael C. Ford on New Album

Subscribe to 103.7 The Loon on

Doors fans will have a chance to hear drummer John Densmore and guitarist Robby Krieger collaborate with the late keyboardist Ray Manzarek once more.

The trio is featured on ‘Look Each Other in the Ears,’ an upcoming album from poet, playwright and recording artist Michael C. Ford.

Ford, long before he became a Grammy-winning, Pulitzer Prize-nominated artist, met the Doors’ late frontman Jim Morrison in 1964 when the two were students at UCLA. “Being immediately aware of having mutual admiration for the same cultural heroes, we became comrades and confidants,” Ford said, in press release. That same year, Ford also worked with Manzarek in a band called the White Trash Quintet.

Later, Ford made his concert debut during a 1969 performance by Morrison and Krieger. “Jim invited me to perform with him and Robby for my first time ever on stage at the Cinematheque Theater,” Ford says. “It was a benefit for Norman Mailer that included our UCLA poetry teacher Jack Hirschman, Michael McClure and an elite cadre of Andy Warhol film people all wrangled by Jim.”

Morrison died in 1971 of an apparent drug overdose. Manzarek was stricken by cancer and passed last year. Michael C. Ford’s ‘Look Each Other in the Ears’ is set for release on June 10. For more information visit
