Howard Werth

King Brilliant


The Moonbeans

Reference: DISC 1942 CD

When Howard brought Audience to a close in late 1972 he got to work on his first solo album King Brilliant (also now reissued on Luminous Records) and it was around the time of this album that Howard was approached by The Doors and asked to fill the space left by Jim Morrison. Howard spent some time rehearsing with them, but after some agonising and deliberation, Ray Manzarek decided against The Doors reforming. However Howard was later to reunite with Ray in Hollywood, where they worked together extensively on Howards songs, some of which would later be re-worked to form the basis of the album Six Of One, which was originally released on Howards own METABop! label, in conjuction with Jake Riviera, Elvis Costellos manager and business partner.
