I am John Densmore.
Doors drummer, writer, and activist.
Our lead singer, my blood brother, Jim Morrison took his life.I wouldn’t say he was suicidal.
He committed slow suicide via alcohol.
I’m also staggered about Robin Williams checking out.
My first book, Riders on the Storm, I closed out the book saying that these tragedies that have been in my life have made me cherish life.
It’s really valuable to try and hang in there.
I know there are issues like depression and other mental illnesses.
