Disquaire day with John Densmore (The Doors) & Jim McCarty ( The Yardbirds) @ Paris, April 19 2014

Disquaire day @ Paris, April 19 2014
 Program HERE

As you can see John had a busy day with  a signing session in Lyon in the morning then he took the TGV to Paris...

First it's JOHN DENSMORE @ Gibert Joseph in Barbes for a signing session of his new book @ 3:30pm.As you can guess there were lots of people, it started a bit late (3:50 ) he stayed for 40 min,  signing his new book and other things. Everything went smoothly.
We went to Gibert Joseph store in St Michel @ 6:00pm

Downstairs:  It's JIM MC CARTY drummer for THE YARDBIRDS doing a 5 songs set to promote his new solo record, he's singing and playing the guitar.
At the same time upstairs JOHN DENSMORE is doing another signing session for his book

There are so many people that John Densmore is having a 5 min break in the middle of the 1 hour session, so I've arranged that Jim McCarty can meet him while he is having a rest in the office on the mezzanine of the store. Here is the result two exclusive pictures of both drummers together, on your left the drummer for The Yardbirds and on the right the drummer for The Doors
Two very important bands for the 60's that influenced many people one American & one English.
