This week we sit down with Frank Lisciandro. Author of the book “Jim Morrison: Friends Gathered Together,” and an old friend of Jim Morrison and Ray Manzarek’s. Frank, Jim and Ray first met at film school where he and Ray became fast friends. Frank went on to do much more for The Doors including tour photography and editing the films “A Feast of Friends,” which was just re-released, and “HWY” Jim Morrison’s unreleased directorial debut. Frank also helped film the Doors Live at the Hollywood Bowl! He co-edited two of Jim’s poetry books, "Wilderness” and "The American Night," and the Grammy nominated album “An American Prayer.” Frank is also an acclaimed photographer and filmmaker and has continued to produce great work including, but not limited to, material dealing with his friend Jim. This interview was an incredible honor as Jim was certainly pivotal in my growth and turned me on to many amazing ideas, poetry, books, music and so much more! Hope you enjoy as much as I did!
