Re: Better than John Densmore?
Not my info. Densmore was an accomplished jazz drummer, who together Robby Krieger & Manzerak helped keep it all together, because 9 times out of 10, they had no idea what was going to happen on stage.
Manzrak was the leader, and the main composer of the recorded music. The band's role, as described by him was to lay a bed for Jim to do his thing..
..anything could happen...at any time, and they had to be ready.
