The Doors appeared on the Ed Sullivan Show (1697 Broadway) for the first and last time on September 17, 1967. Though asked by a producer on the show to change the line "Girl, we couldn’t get much higher" to "Girl, we couldn’t get much better," Jim Morrison reverted to the original version of the song during the live broadcast. #thedoors #johndensmore #robbykrieger #jimmorrison #raymanzarek #edsullivan #theedsullivanshow #rrexplorernyc

Johnny Thunders saw the Rolling Stones at Madison Square Garden in 1969 and can supposedly be spotted in crowd footage shot for the film Gimme Shelter. What do you think? Have these intrepid internet sleuths found him?

“And love don't play any games with me, anymore
Like she did before
The world won't wait, so I better shake
That thing right out there through the door
Hell, I still love you, New York...” - Ryan Adams, “New York, New York” #ryanadams #rrexplorernyc

It’s actually Grand Central Terminal - Grand Central Station is the post office around the corner - but maybe we should cut Macca a bit of slack. #paulmccartney #rrexplorernyc

We’re hard at work on the next book in the Explorer series (@rrexplorersf), but while the Rock and Roll Explorer Guide to New York City was going through the final push to publication, we found the time to put together another book we hope you’ll enjoy... #Repost @stuporfly with @get_repost

Hello again, friends! It seems like it’s been hours since I mentioned my new book, The Little Book of Rock and Roll Wisdom, which for those of you keeping a running tally is my second absolutely essential tome in nearly as many months. Like the Rock and Roll Explorer Guide to New York City, this handsome hardcover suitable as a gift item for everyone you know or just the comfort of having something fun to flip through while you’re on the crapper is another instant classic cooked up with co-author Mike Katz. We’ve been joined this time around by Jason Malmberg, who took time out of his busy schedule of ruling the graphic design roost and making obscure pop culture references to anyone within earshot to lushly illustrate a collection of amusing but mostly unhelpful quotes from rock luminaries, some of whom you’ll probably have heard of. The new book is available all over the place and can be preordered from your favorite internet merchant or bought in actual person from actual book shops by the end of the month. Be the first on your block to consider financial advice from the bassist in Blur! And he owns a farm and makes cheese! Buy both books and pretend you’re stalking me! #rrexplorernyc #makeamericareadagain
