Between Takes With The Monsters
Unquestionably, Peter Lorre, Frankie and The Wolfman got their kicks on Route 66 - even given that Alice Cooper, The Dead Boys and Electric Frankenstein were a few years (or decades) down the road.
And, frankly, I would have found Marty Milner's subsequent cop show, Adam-12, infinitely more entertaining had Karloff, Lorre and Chaney been in the regular cast!
"One Adam-12, gruesome green monster with bolts sticking out his neck wandering aimlessly on Sunset, near the Whisky A Go-Go. Said to have British accent and unkempt werewolf companion. Jim Morrison considering having werewolf sit in with the band."
Meanwhile, although Peter Lorre did not jam with The Doors or The Velvet Underground, he get to have an incredible amount of fun with his screen image on the following 1963 episode of The Jack Benny Program.
