Poet Michael C. Ford was a friend of the late Ray Manzarek, as well as one James Douglas Morrison. They met at film school in the early 1960s. He was once considered for the position of bass player in The Doors. Here we discuss his brand new album, Look Each Other In The Ears, which not only features his latest poems but the last-ever musical back-up tracks by all three remaining members of The Doors. We also discuss, among other things, how he learned poetry under the great beat poet, Kenneth Patchen, his first-ever public reading in 1969, and his first appearance on vinyl on SST Records in the mid-80s.
