Hey, John Densmore! Can I Have Your Autograph?
If you hear, “Beat it, kid” after you utter that question, don’t be shocked.
If you were hoping to get your drum head signed by John Densmore, you’re out of luck. Densmore says via his website that he will not be giving out any more autographs. Period. The Doors drummer says the flood of requests recently has impacted his personal life and privacy. He says it’s unfortunate, but he had to draw the line somewhere.
He is the second known drummer boy to stop handing out his signature. Three years ago, Ringo Starr put a stop to signing things and also quit accepting fan mail because he couldn’t keep up with all of it.
