Why didn't The Doors play the Monterey Pop Festival?
I was curious if there was a reason why the Doors didn't play this concert. Watching the film, it seems like they would be the quintessential band to play at this concert but they were a no-show. Anyone ever read anything about it?

from http://www.montereycountyweekly.com/....cover_story_2:

Despite having their hit single “Light My Fire” residing at the top of the charts for most of the Summer of Love, the Los Angeles-based group The Doors were never invited to play the Monterey Pop Festival. Ray Manzarek remembers The Doors were “pissed” that they were not taking the stage at the Monterey Fairgrounds for the three-day show.

“We were quite angry wondering why The Association was at the Monterey Pop Festival, and The Doors were not,” he says.
