The Doors at Barney's

2008_12_barnesysm.jpg Losanjealous talked with The Doors' Robby Krieger and Ray Manzarek on Jim Morrison's birthday celebration at the original Barney's Beanery in West Hollywood. What was the roadhouse like back then? "It was a writer’s bar, kind of a writer’s intellectual bar, great assortment of whiskey behind the bar, great assortment of beer, beer on tap, lots of beer. Ed Kienholz, in the early ’60s, did a construction of Barney’s Beanery; it was fabulous. It was just a great place to hang out and very conducive to talk! It was a place where a man could go and have a drink and talk to another guy. And then the girls started coming too, which was kinda cool." Kinda. [Losanjealous]
