It has long been a minor niggle for me that in F&H the band is
consistently referred to as "Doors" rather than "The Doors" I
wonder if that was in the editing or the origianl writing. They have
always struck me as the perfect band for Seb. There's that song
with a very unsettling backing track where Jim Morrison intones, in
a voice deep as darkness, "I went down the hallway...... " and it's
about killing his parents. Just right for poor Seb's kind of family life.
