I woke up this morning to discover When You’re Strange has been nominated for a Grammy. The category is long form video (dvd) which is fine even though the film was conceived as a film, made as a film and released as a film.
But it is a great honor to receive this nomination from the music industry. I worked very hard to make the film be as much about the Door’s music as possible. Their sound is like no other. I’m thrilled for them and everyone who believes like I do that this band stands as one of the most singular musical collaborations to rise out of the American rock psyche.
Let it roll.
