Posted by - 10:33 AM on 10/03/07
The Doors members Ray Manzarek and Robby Krieger recently commented on their experience with government repression in Mexico during a concert in 1969.
From the Article"'The government's attitude during that era was one of absolute rejection and repression,' Mexican rock historian Jose Agustin said. 'They thought that any rock 'n' roll event was going to cause disorder, depravity and obscenity.'"
