SUBJECTS:

Marking the band?s fortieth anniversary, the surviving members of The Doors — one of the most influential rock bands of all time — finally invite fans inside their world

In the late 1960s, Jim Morrison, Ray Manzarek, Robby Krieger, and John Densmore reinvented rock music. The Doors? brooding, psychedelia-tinged songs combined with lead singer Morrison?s charismatic, leather-clad presence in a perfect manifestation of their turbulent era. Though they only recorded six studio albums together, the band?s influence continues even today, with countless new fans born decades after Morrison died under mysterious circumstances in 1971.

The Doors? mystique is as enduring as their music. Bestselling books have been written, Oliver Stone made a hit movie about them, but there have always been more questions than answers. Now, at last, the surviving members of The Doors have united to provide their fans with an intimate, all-access pass to their history. The Doors is like a tour of the band?s personal archives, filled with previously unheard anecdotes and never-before-seen photographs from their private collections. In addition to material from Morrison?s archive, his father, Admiral George Stephen Morrison, will discuss his son and their troubled relationship for the first time ever. Others close to the group will be interviewed and featured throughout.

With new revelations on everything from the band?s genesis in Venice Beach, to their notorious Ed Sullivan Show appearance, to the surviving members? reaction to the Stone film, The Doors is the book millions of fans have been waiting for.
