Well John I do think that's would be wierd if the cops were in between you and the crowd every concert..... anyways I love all of you guys including the demised Jim Morrison.... I am sorry that his death ended the band..... I hope you will consider helping me out in my quest to form Led Stealth previously "Of Perception The Next Generation of The Doors"....... I really caught Jim's and your guys vibe in that Stone movie when I first tripped on one hit of acid 15 years ago in March... what it was was irresponible of Oliver not to put up some type of warning.... with you guys turning out the way you did I thought the DEA had been lying to me all my life and ended in March of 1997 13 years ago eating a whole sheet of some low grade bad acid I got for free off some dead heads that had just stopped following the Greatful Dead when Garcia Died of his Heroine Overdose.... anyways I ate the whole sheet at one time because I wasn't a dealer and it was so highly illegal.

Sincerely,

Your Cosmic Friend in Fate

Well John I do agree with you that things did get a little bit out of hand.... with all those cops there I've owned almost all of your live albums except Live in New York.... and usually you guys put on a normal concert"Well Normal to my point of View" a Real Doors Concert.... I got the experience of that in 1996 when I had been tripping non stop for several weeks and went and saw The Doors cover Band "Break On Through" from NYC..... anyways they were really professional... and right after the crappy local band"A Reason I can't form Led Stealth in Tulsa is because no one here is a fan of The Doors my age...." anyways we all went outside at the Cains and one guy had some Hash and I had on This psychadellic Doors T - Shirt which was orange and white and yellow and had all these psychadellic ancient gods of the ages on it.... and this guy say's You can smoke with me which I desperately needed because when I finally smoked it took all the pressure off my brain...... Also the first time I saw that Oliver Stone Movie I believed it I was on one hit of acid and I took a Journey through the 4th and 5th dimension to a parallel dimension.....anyways I think Oliver was really irresponsible the way he didn't put a disclaimer on that movie because I thought Morrison died of a hemmerage from drinking too much or something.... I mean I had no Idea he was that burnt out on Lsd..... anyways after that movie I was tripping as much as I could and in March Of 1997 I ate a whole sheet of some bad acid I got off some dead heads that were depressed afer Garcia Died.... anyways it made my mind shut down in under three days of eating and doubling the dose every time I came down starting with four hits...anyways I later had a psychotic episode..... it ruined my life in many ways.... I was in Acid Hell for like ten years from 1997-2007.
Anyways as long as I have my medication I am okay but I wish medical marijuana was a Federal Law not just a state law because Oklahoma is never going to legalise any kind of marijuana they are a bunch of religious nuts who think it's the devils drug... I wouldn't smoke it all the time but I would smoke it once in a while to write or take the pressure off my mind. Anyways I would really appreciate it if you guys helped me form my band Led Stealth... a fusion of The Doors, Led Zeppelin and a little Black Sabbath....... It's not to steal your fans but it's great advertising to give you new ones..... I am on disability because I can't work a normal job but I could if I practiced do a gig two or three nights a week.... I have an amazing voice..... I sound like Jim on Roids"Though I only did mind expanding drugs"... anyways I really appreciate everything you did back in the day before I was born because it did expand my mind and I only tripped for a year and a half so I was like you I did enough not to escape but I did escape I've severely penetrated the other side all I need is a muse my Pam "Jolene Blalock"....anyways and some medical marijuana..... and of course musicians.... I really have a vision... and I am 35 now and don't have the temptation to do anythig in excess.... since I've allready been down William Blakes Path...

Sincerely,

Your Cosmic Friend in Fate

I'm sorry John I just figured out it wasn't bad acid it was really really strong acid that I ate a whole sheet of in March of 1997 I had an intense trip this weekend when My mother didn't pick up my Klonopim or Clonazapam at a pharmacy that sells it cheap that's open Monday thru Friday she thought they were open on Sunday........ Anyways from 2:30 a.m. Sunday Morning to 7:00 p.m. I had an intense trip it was like being on two hit's of lsd 50...... anyways I am waiting till March of 2017.... I hate tripping all the time......... It's boring.
