It’s the people one encounters along the way that turns any trip into a journey.

With his latest memoir, titled The Seekers: Meetings with Remarkable Musicians (and Other Artists), John Densmore, the former drummer with the late great Los Angeles psychedelic rock group the Doors, reflects on a lifetime spent crossing paths with greatness. From Elvin Jones to Joseph Campbell, Patti Smith, the Dalai Lama, Willie Nelson, his own mother, and more, The Seeker is a rumination on the knowledge that Densmore has gained through various remarkable encounters, and an exploration of his own relationship with art, music, and humankind.

On Wednesday, December 16, at 7 p.m. Eastern, Densmore and I will talk via Zoom about playing drums in one of the greatest psychedelic rock bands of all time, and the characters with whom he has crossed paths.

A Cappella Books hosts our conversation. Tickets are limited to 100 guests. Head over to A Cappella’s website to pre-order a copy of “The Seekers,” which includes a bookplate signed by Densmore, along with your private invitation to sign in to our Zoom chat. Your access code will arrive via email from A Cappella Books a day ahead of the program.
