Taken by legendary Brit, Vietnam photo journalist, Tim Page who happened to be at the gig for LIFE magazine and was also arrested trying to photograph the police beating up a kid after the gig. His fellow photo journalist and best friend Sean Flynn (son of Errol) was killed in Vietnam and Page himself 'died' in a landmine incident helping wounded soldiers onto a helicopter. He survived after being pronounced 'dead' by medics and set up a foundation to his fallen comrades...the journalists who died in 'Nam. It would have been an interesting court case if it had ever been brought by the authorities to a court-room as witnesses like Page would certainly not have been intimidated by the police after what he had been through.

That's a shame Tim as your photos are very evocative and tell the story of that night rather well. I have seen them all over the net but never in any great quality so it looks like more Doors History lost. Which is a shame. Just got back from Paris visiting the guys residence in the city. Nice little inside info to add to all the little snippets that make up this great bands History. cheers for that.
I passed your request for help with the photos onto my Doors friends and left them a link here. So maybe someone will be able to help mate
I was in Vietnam in December and saw some of your photos and Sean's in one of the museums there. Some powerful stuff.
