Sally Simpson

This song was inspired by Pete’s witnessing of Jim Morrison’s dangerous teasing of his fans when The Doors followed The Who at the Singer Bowl in New York City August 2nd, 1968. The original draft was about a rock and roll star named Danine instead of Tommy and the car was an Eldorado instead of a Rolls Royce.

One early song list has this song preceded by "Water." This song was often dropped in the live version.
