    The Doors Quarterly Magazine #26, with its stunning cover photo by Frank Lisciandro,
went to the post office on May 20, 1992 (I was NOT happy at all with the quality of
the printing). It had but one page of news ... not much compared to all following
editions of the Quarterly. Nothing much had been going on the months before, but as
usual our readers were provided with some interesting articles which were absolutely
worth reading.

There’s part four on my L.A. Guide, leading fans to Laurel Canyon, to the former
Morrison Hotel and the original Hard Rock Café, down south to Santa Monica and
the former Turkey Joint West (I remember some great beers in there) and I also
added a few updates of information on previous parts of the guide.

Two book reviews (Kennealy-Morrison and Riordan/Prochnicky) and eleven reviews
of underground CDs and LPs informed fans about interesting but also to-be-avoided

Most interesting in issue #26 was a 3-page story by my friend Cathy Weldy, who
used to know The Doors and especially Jim from 1966 to the months before he left
for Paris. Cathy wrote this very touching report exclusively for The Doors Quarterly
Magazine. Another retrospective view of The Doors at the Avalon 1967 was written by
Sally E. Hinton. A further article by Jeff Hughson who remembers his experiences of
watching a few Doors concerts in 1967.

In addition I put in Cris Reabur’s Morrison Hotel Revisited, one of the most interesting
reviews ever written. An interesting Q&A by Jerry Hopkins about his forthcoming book
The Lizard King is followed by Doug Sundling’s essay Their Artistic Vision (this later
became the title of Sundling’s book) and a shorter essay by Dan Salomon called Vision
of Los Angeles
. And finally a brilliant Journey to the Vortex of the Golden Scarab from
Downbeat (November 1974) made a good read in this issue of The Doors Quarterly
Magazine #26. For a change, sadly there wasn’t any free poster with it.

Enjoy your digital version and let us know what you think ... we will continue soon by
publishing a digital version of DQ 25.

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

A splendid time is guaranteed for all!

And don’t forget:

Please note that your digital copy of The Doors Quarterly Magazine #26 hasn't been
altered in any way. You get it as it was published on May 20, 1992 (!). Be aware that
all addresses (private, phone) are no longer valid. Books, 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 1992. And all this happened without any emails and without the internet.

PS: ... if you would like to obtain an original paper copy of this Doors Quarterly
Magazine #26... I'm sorry... don't bother trying - there isn't a single copy available
any longer!

Thank you!
