The Doors

The Doors, one of the most influential and controversial rock bands of the 1960s, were formed in Los Angeles in 1965 by UCLA film students Ray Manzarek, keyboards, and Jim Morrison, vocals; with drummer John Densmore and guitarist Robby Krieger. The group never added a bass player, and their sound was dominated by Manzarek's electric organ work and Morrison's deep, sonorous voice, with which he sang and intoned his highly poetic lyrics. The group signed to Elektra Records in 1966 and released its first album, The Doors, featuring the hit "Light My Fire," in 1967.

Like "Light My Fire," the debut album was a massive hit, and endures as one of the most exciting, groundbreaking recordings of the psychedelic era. Blending blues, classical, Eastern music, and pop into sinister but beguiling melodies, the band sounded like no other. With his rich, chilling vocals and somber poetic visions, Morrison explored the depths of the darkest and most thrilling aspects of the psychedelic experience. Their first effort was so stellar, in fact, that the Doors were hard-pressed to match it, and although their next few albums contained a wealth of first-rate material, the group also began running up against the limitations of their recklessly disturbing visions. By their third album, they had exhausted their initial reservoir of compositions, and some of the tracks they hurriedly devised to meet public demand were clearly inferior to, and imitative of, their best early work.

On The Soft Parade, the group experimented with brass sections, with mixed results. Accused (without much merit) by much of the rock underground as pop sellouts, the group charged back hard with the final two albums they recorded with Morrison, on which they drew upon stone-cold blues for much of their inspiration, especially on 1971's L.A. Woman.

From the start, the Doors' focus was the charismatic Morrison, who proved increasingly unstable over the group's brief career. In 1969, Morrison was arrested for indecent exposure during a concert in Miami, an incident that nearly derailed the band. Nevertheless, the Doors managed to turn out a series of successful albums and singles through 1971, when, upon the completion of L.A. Woman, Morrison decamped for Paris. He died there, apparently of a drug overdose. The three surviving Doors tried to carry on without him, but ultimately disbanded. Yet the Doors' music and Morrison's legend continued to fascinate succeeding generations of rock fans: in the mid-'80s, Morrison was as big a star as he'd been in the mid-'60s, and Elektra has sold numerous quantities of the Doors' original albums plus reissues and releases of live material over the years, while publishers have flooded bookstores with Doors and Morrison biographies. In 1991, director Oliver Stone made The Doors, a feature film about the group starring Val Kilmer as Morrison.

The remaining three members of the Doors -- Manzarek, Densmore, and Krieger -- were involved in various musical activities in the decades following Morrison's death but never saw successes approaching the levels of the original Doors. After the turn of the millennium, Manzarek and Krieger performed live under the name Doors of the 21st Century with singer Ian Astbury of the Cult handling vocals; a legal battle ensued when Densmore filed suit against his former bandmates over use of the Doors name. Ray Manzarek died in May 2013 in Rosenheim, Germany after battling bile duct cancer; he was 74 years old. ~ William Ruhlmann & Richie Unterberger, Rovi

The legend is that Van Morrison joined Jim Morrison and the Doors at a show at the Whisky A Go Go in late '66 or early '67 for an onstage jam of Van Morrison & Them's already classic number Gloria. Now that would have been something to see.
You can pick your teeth with a New York Joint lol
Haut
Deep and wide

Emma, listening to this in a hotel room in Pasadena miles away from Doors-land, pretender to the Dionysian legacy. God bless Jim and The Doors.
Everyone else is doing things like watching the sunset and lighting candles. I'll light one later just to say that I'm not eating pizza and listening to Love Her Madly on the couch with my iPad
Watching the sunset to this. Perfect
Yeah

Just saw the movie deliver us from evil and just saying the doors are pretty demonic... Jk if you haven't seen the movie you need to and you'll know why I said that.
I was at the Infamous Concert in Miami being Born and Raised there I never saw Jim expose himself and do NOT Believe he did! He only simulated Sexual Activity! The Right Wing Religionists who hated Rock Music Trumped up the Charges led by a famous pop singer and her DJ husband! They had no proof, The Miami police resented Jim calling them Pigs! Trust me I was there and so were a lot of others who did not see anything! The only thing Jim did was come out on Stage ring a 5th of Jack Daniels!
Duane
I have to see you again and again...
Words are cool
Just as good as it GETS!!!
What I would do to be back in time to see Jim live!!!
The Doors and a ton of other bands were part of my growing up, and it was amazing, I would not change a thing...do it over again in a heart beat.
Great song
Greatest band of the 60s
WOKE UP THIS MORNING AND GOT MYSELF A BEER !!!
THE FUTURE'S UNCERTAIN AND THE END IS ALWAYS NEAR !!!
