“Usually Jim or I would come up with the original idea [for a song] and then we would all work it out together. That’s what a real band does. We all worked very well together as far as that goes, there were no egos involved. We were lucky that we had a good relationship.” - Robby Krieger on the songwriting process for The Doors
