December 1969. The Doors didn't have any ideas for their album cover but the keyboard player had seen a hotel window on a recent trip downtown that said "Morrison Hotel." Problem solved. But on the day we went to take the picture at the transient hotel the man behind the counter said no. We walked back outside, and looking through the window I saw him leave the counter and get into the elevator. I said, "Quick, run back in there." We took one roll of film and that was it.
