    The Doors Quarterly Magazine #23 got published on June 5, 1990, and everyone
(including myself) was desperately waiting for more news on The Doors' movie at
that time - better said, Oliver Stone's movie. Please read the news section in DQ 23
to see how carefully I was collecting all those rumors and correct information floating
among the media and the fans. Those news bits published in DQ 23 were the ones
I was allowed to tell in the magazine - one thing I could not mention was the fact
that Ray Manzarek was literally thrown off the movie set. He was trying to control
the process of filming and interfering too much (in Stone's eyes) --- and Ray never
was happy with any of the different versions of the movie script. No wonder most
fans at that time were disappointed about the movie - wonder how it would have
turned out to be if they had admitted more of Ray's ideas ... by the way, Oliver
Stone's office called me for a full cassette tape of The Doors' Miami show, which I
(of course) mailed to them quickly.

Further news of June 1990 - just open page 3-5 of your digital DQ #23.

Check part 1 of my "LA Tours", a guide to The Doors' Los Angeles that is still helpful
for fans visiting this incredible city. Carefully read the “From you to me” letters and
be surprised about Patricia Kennealy-Morrison's very different view on the
forthcoming Doors-movie. By the way, she changed her mind on that after watching
the movie.
Enjoy June 1990's latest bootleg reviews - just one vinyl double album called
"Celebration - Some Are Born to Sweet Delight" and seven single albums on vinyl.
Former club member Jay Burnstein wrote a review on a Krieger/Burdon concert
and also sent me an insightful interview with Ray Manzarek on his band Nite City.
Ko Lankester did an article called "Love, Death & Resurrection" (part two is in DQ 24)
exploring Jim Morrison's lyrics, followed by a "Who's who" line-up on the musicians
who joined The Doors on their recordings.

All this came on glossy paper in pretty neat printing quality - let's not forget the free
colour poster accompanying the magazine - a nice huge photo of The Doors in a
Frankfurt photo studio (no longer available, sorry!).

Enjoy your digital copy and let us know what you think ... we will continue soon
by publishing the digital version of DQ 22.

CU and have fun!
Thanks to Kevin Chiotis for all of his work!

A splendid time is guaranteed for all!
Rainer Moddemann.

And don’t forget:
Please note that your digital copy of The Doors Quarterly Magazine 23 hasn't been
altered in any way. You get it as it was published on June 5, 1990 (!). Be aware that all
addresses (private, phone) are no longer valid. Books, vinyl discs, CDs or posters and
other stuff might not be available anymore. Please do not respond to any of the small
ads or blame anyone for incorrect details - all writers just did the best they could back
in 1990. And all this happened without any emails and therefore without the internet.

Thank you! RM.
