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.
