tell you that I caught your December show at the Whiskey by pure
luck. I was in town for one day with my 18 year old daughter
to attend a company Christmas party, and when it let out I took
her to the whiskey to see what it looked like inside. We are
both big Doors fans and this was a sort of pilgrimage we made
together from Boston. Had no idea you were on that night, and
we arrived at 11pm when our party finished up. magine my shock
when I heard your voices wafting through the door! It was like
a time machine. I was a kid in the 60's, was at Woodstock, and
closing my eyes brought it all back. The absolute best part was
the young age of the audience and their immersion. It pulled
us in completely, and the mood has lingered for days. Wow.
I recently saw
Wild Child play for the first time in Redwood City, CA. I am
not a Doors Fan (per say) as I mostly listen to The Moody Blues,
Zeppelin, Beatles &CCR, but I was truly amazed at how great
Wild Child is and absolutely love Dave Brocks style of
performance (showmens ship)! BRILLIANT to say the least!!!!
Just saw this
Band for the first time and I am TOTALLY HOOKED! I am not even
a major Doors Fan per say, but I was amazed at this Band's showmen's
ship to put on such a great show! Dave Brock is truly an entertainer
who should be a Rock Superstar!
(he is in my
eye's instantly after seeing him perform)...
Thanks! -- Patty

Saw your show
in Redwood City, CA. Best concert I've seen in twenty years,
hands down. Best cover band I've seen ever.
First of all
your CD is awesome. I agree 100% that this could be passed off
to a seasoned collector as an unheard Doors Live CD. I too have
played the CD for friends and family who listen to The Doors
and had every single one of them fooled in thinking they were
actually listening to The Doors. When people find out it's Wild
Child, they are ecstatic about attending the next show -- Frank
Brock was Morrison's
presence onstage @ THE STUDIOS, Merthyr Tydfil South Wales. I
have been a massive fan of THE DOORS since I was 12years old
and idolized Morrison...not ever having the opportunity to ever
see him I feel privileged to have captured a glimpse of him &
The Doors via WILD CHILD...what a true tribute! Needless to say
I am now a Wild Child fan too! Everyone I spoke to in Merthyr
agreed they were great... ...WHEN ARE YOU COMING BACK TO WALES????
We will be waiting for you with bated breath -- Zelda
When I first
saw Dave perform, it was after I had joined the band, but I had
never been to a Wild Child show. I sat in the back at The Coach
House, and was totally blown away by his act. It's not just that
he looks and sounds like Morrison alone (which he does), but
he has the actor's gift for creating a suspension of disbelief
- you know Jim is dead, this is not The Doors, etc., but your
mind lets you relive it for a while. A guy who is only a mimic
can't do that- Dave is talented musically and has an intuitive
acting sense that lets him bring the Morrison persona alive.
He doesn't have to "get into Jim's head" and all that
nonsense- it's called ACTING -- Kit Potamkin
Hey guys, I stumbled
across you guys on the internet. I've seen D21C twice and in
the 80s' a band called The Back Doors and you guys sound better
than the real thing! Come to the Virginia Beach, Va. area, please.
I am going to see D21C for the second time and your band sounds
great! But D21c is incredible as well. I have never heard ANY
band sound better than Wild Child. The singer is superb. Good
luck and thanks for sounding so authentic !!! -- Hatton
The band enters
the stage first, then Dave enters from the catwalk as sexy as
he can be. Then everyone starts screaming and jumping in excitement.
he started the show with "Strange Days." Oh my god,
I thought I was going to faint, he sang Riders on The Storm,People
are strange, Moonlight Drive, Backdoor Man, Love Street and more
I sort of forgot already. But yes it was super great the greatest
experience ever. -- JS
Hey Dave, just
wanted to reach out to you and say thank you for keeping the
spirit of Jim Morrison and the Doors alive within me. Without
Wild Child, I'm not sure if I could continue the enthusiasm that
I feel for the Doors. I've seen you perform many times, and it's
one of the few acts that I know comes through every time. I will
continue spreading the word about you.
Thank you, Cesar
Can I first congratulate
you on a terrific show at Cannes in San Diego back in January
05. Myself and a pal were over on vacation from London. I have
been a big Doors fan for a long while and enjoyed the trip all
the better for your fantastic performance. The intensity created,
was testimony to all the band members skill and effort. ... However
it was more than that, it is obvious that all of you genuinely
have a deep passion for what you do and that is what creates
"that bit extra." Its also good to see you are all
"down to earth guys". Anyways best of luck in the future
and definitely keep me posted if you ever venture to the UK.
It was my first
time to see Wild Child play at The Whisky. YOU GUYS ROCK JUST
LIKE JIM, I CANT WAIT FOR THE NEXT SHOW.
I caught one
of Wild Child's shows at the House of Blues in Anaheim, CA a
few years ago. The show still sticks out in my mind as being
the BEST concert I've ever been to. I had to remind myself a
few times that this wasn't really the Doors on stage although
it damn near seemed like it.

Oh God, I wish
I could go back in time and meet Jim and see the original Doors
too! But yes Wild Child rocks and I saw them for the first time
Saturday night in San Diego and it was one of the best nights
of my life. I have never had THAT much fun at a concert and I
seriously didn't want it to ever end. You guys were incredible!:)
You are truly keeping the spirit of Jim alive! Such a total rush!
We live in Vegas but went to San Diego for the show.
I'm sad now:(
My jaw just dropped
to the floor when I first saw him perform .... He would have
been the perfect front man for the 21st Century Doors ... who
I saw perform in NYC two years ago. Any idea if Wild Child will
be in NYC again?
Well Wild Child
is next best to the original Doors, I believe now that I finally
got to see him in person. That he really is like Jim Morrison.
The Show at the Whiskey was great. I hope they come back soon,
so I can enjoy this experience that I will never forget for the
rest of my life. I really wish I could go back in time and actually
meet the real thing but for now Wild Child is the next big real
thing. Wild Child for ever as per Jim is for ever and his music
will always be heard. -- M664r
Wild Child was
great, it was my first time there at The Whisky and yes it was
great the greatest experience ever. They played all my favorite
songs I loved it very much!
Rock on Wild Child -- Pararsrch
I am a "child"
of the sixties having grown up in Southern Cal and after having
seen The Doors in '67 at the Whiskey, I heard Dave Brock singing
Jimmy's songs and it absolutely 'freaked' me out. I always hoped
Jim would somehow "sneak back"...but who knew he'd
do it through Dave Brock! Un-freakin-believable - Susie
I am a big time
Doors fans and like a lot of people we were too young to see
them perform. I like that David Brock talked about the song Not
To Touch the Earth in an interview I read on the website. To hear that song live
would be pretty cool. I also just played Wild Child's version
of Changeling and the original off the L.A. Women cd, couldn't
even tell it was two songs playing, which is really weird since
Wild Child was playing a live show.
