The Doors Live in Europe: Rare Footage


The Doors were founded in 1965 in Los Angeles by vocalist Jim Morrison and Keyboardist Ray Manzarek. Together with guitarist Robby Krieger and Drummer John Densmore, they forged a truly unique sound, combining Morrison’s unforgettable vocals and  lyrical images (who can forget “I am the Lizard King?”) with the band’s hard-driving rock/blues/fusion/rhythms. The Doors went on to be one of the most controversial and influential rock acts of the sixties. Morrison’s early death in Paris in 1971 only served to enhance the band’s iconic status which it has now enjoyed for over forty years.
