Rock Musician. He was a bass guitarist who performed on many of the songs on The Doors’ 'Strange Days,' 'Waiting For the Sun' and 'The Soft Parade' albums, including such classic rock favorites as “People Are Strange,” “Love Me Two Times” and “Hello, I Love You." In 1965, while working as a ski instructor in Aspen, Colorado, Lubahn met Cass Elliot in her pre-Mamas and the Papas days. She persuaded the fledgling musician to move to Los Angeles to pursue his musical career. By 1967 producer Paul Rothchild recommended him to The Doors when they were preparing to enter the recording studio to record their second album, 'Strange Days.' Lubahn subsequently performed on seven of the album’s 10 tracks alongside the band's four original members. On 1968’s 'Waiting For the Sun,' Lubahn performed on all but one of the album’s 11 tracks, including the #1 single, “Hello, I Love You.” The following year, he played on three of the songs for 'The Soft Parade.' Lubahn would later play in several bands including Pierce Arrow and Riff Raff. In the ’80s, he performed on albums by Billy Squier and Ted Nugent. His biggest credit as a songwriter is “Treat Her Right,” a hit by Pat Benatar on her 1980 smash album, 'Crimes of Passion.' In 2007, he authored a book, 'My Days With The Doors and Other Stories.'
