Famously filmed as part of Feast Of Friends as Jim sketches out his tribute to his hero Fred, who collapsed into insanity after kissing a horse in the street, on a convenient piano backstage at the Saratoga Springs Performing Arts center on September 1st 1968.
Jim's tribute to fred is on the soft parade dvd. I like the soft parade for its littel gems like this. the tribute make me laugh. did fred really kiss a horse and go insane? I also like the bit on TSP where jim gets talking to that priest dude about the doors concerts being a religous experience. Jim looks like he is humouring the religious freak ,although as far as priests and hateful religous people go that dude wasnt to bad....he liked the doors! lol

I'm no expert but from what I know he delibrately caught the clap because he wanted his brain to burn with fever and as it got worse he became more and more delusional....eventually he ran out into the street and began kissing a horse and was shortly afterwards carted off to the nut house.... basically what Jim says....
"That's the trouble with reality!.... it's taken far too seriously! I do hope God is good to me and Santa Claus to the children! Celebrate...this parties over...I'm going home!"
