Re: John Densmore
John Densmore was the perfect drummer for the Doors. He was heavily influenced by jazz. He had a great groove and swung with ease. I read that he cited Elvin Jones as a big influence. The Doors not having a traditional bass player was great for john, it let him free up the feel of the songs. IMO John Densmore is a very under rated drummer who provided dynamic grooves to one of the greatest Rock bands ever.
