A great band formed in 1965 by Ray Manzarek and Jim Morrison, later joined by guitarist Robby Krieger and drummer John Densmore. The group took their name from Aldous Huxley's 'The Doors of Perception'.The band started as a small band performing at local LA
clubs like Whisky A Go'Go. As a record deal was presented to The Doors they recorded their self-titled debut album in only six days. The album sold 1 million copies and catapulted the band to #1 on the Billboard top 100 charts. As time continued the band went on to make a total of 9 albums in a short career of only 8 years due to Jim Morrison's tragic death due to heart failure on July 3, 1971. The Doors were inducted into the Rock n' Roll Hall of Fame in 1993 and have sold a whopping 32.5 million albums and continue to inspire the young and old with beautiful ballads and soulful blues songs. The Doors will go down in history as one of the best bands of all time, not only because of the cult following they have amassed but their songs that make you think about your entire being and how prolific they were in a span of only a few short years.TELL ALL THE PEOPLE!
RIP Jim from all of your beloved fans who will never forget what you stood for. And a thank you to all the members of The Doors for making sweet sweet beautiful music.
