LISTEN: Local Singer Performs “Roadhouse Blues” With The Doors’ Robby Krieger
Today marks the fiftieth anniversary of the legendary debut album by The Doors. The eleven song package completely reinvented what it meant to be a rock and roll band and is just as prevalent today as it was in 1967.
In 2015, local Montgomery singer and my dad, Joe McCausland, sang with Robby Krieger in Tarrytown; you can check out the video below. While the tune they picked, “Roadhouse Blues”, doesn’t show up on The Doors’ debut record, the song perhaps best captures everything that The Doors are.
You can read my full interview with Krieger’s son and usual frontman, Waylon, on Alternative Nation. He touches on what it’s like to be the son of the man who wrote “Light My Fire”, an accomplishment he describes as “winning the lottery a million times over on your first try”.
