I read a bit about that last night. Very strange and it seems that many
actually believed the falsified story. There is a good explanation out on

Quite so. Regardless if Keith suffered an accidental overdose or suicide,
it was all very sad and it just shouldn't have happened. The only other
death that seriously affected me during that early era was Jim Morrison's.
I loved The Doors from early on and that was one group that I was never able
I keep meaning to go see one of The Doors tribute bands and see if they are
any good, but I just haven't done that. One evening, I did go see three
tribute bands/performers for Bob Dylan, Led Zeppelin and Steely Dan. I had
seen all three of the real deal in concert and thought it would be a cheap
and fun evening. It was. The Dylan and Led Zep folks were good, but the
Steely Dan group was great! I wound up seeing them a second time.
One tribute performance that completely blew me away was by a San Diego
group called Rockola. Two years ago on Halloween, with a little help from a
few musician friends and the backing of a full orchestra, they performed The
Beatles White album, in order, from start to finish. Except for Revolution
Number 9 (of which they performed their own rather amusing interpretation)
they didn't miss a beat. My ticket was around $35 and it was some of the
best concert money I have ever spent. In April, they did Abbey Road but I
couldn't attend. :(
