Sound Designer Marc Blinder was asked to weigh-in on the age old argument “What is the Greatest Rock and Roll Vocal Performance EVER”, an argument that leads to Linda's and Michael's meet-cute in Fiction by Steven Dietz. Here’s what he had to say:
Jim Morrison - "Light My Fire" 1967
Why? Because it’s a super sexy song that inspires crowds to sing and people to dance, because The Doors helped marry Sex, Drugs and Rock and Roll forever, and because just singing it was considered rebellious enough to get the Doors a lifetime ban from the Ed Sullivan show. There aren’t a lot of tracks in history that got to number one but could still get you kicked off the air and I gave Jim the edge over The Sex Pistols because he got there first.
