It was a Sunday night on September 17, 1967, and I remember tuning into to watch The Ed Sullivan Show and see The Doors performing Light My Fire and People Are Strange. This would be the last time they would be on the show.

The Doors were banned from The Ed Sullivan Show after Jim Morrison broke his agreement with the show’s producers, that he wouldn’t sing the words, "girl, we couldn’t get much higher" from Light My Fire. But Jim being Jim broke his promise. Mr. Sullivan wasn't happy with the band and supposed drug reference.
