The Doors

Overview

The Doors were born in the sixties, a decade of bright colors, rebellion, and amazing creativity. Forty years later, you might think the Doors would seem like a relic from the past, like a tie-dyed T-shirt that's been washed too many times. But that's far from the case.

Overview

The Doors were born in the sixties, a decade of bright colors, rebellion, and amazing creativity. Forty years later, you might think the Doors would seem like a relic from the past, like a tie-dyed T-shirt that's been washed too many times. But that's far from the case. Although this band definitely has its roots deep in the psychedelic, drug-soaked soil of the sixties, the Doors have managed to make the transition into the twenty-first century.

This is a huge accomplishment on their part, given that the man who was at their center-Jim Morrison-died in 1971. Jim's inspiration did not die, however, and his music continues to move a new generation. Find out more within the pages of this book. Read about the Doors long and colorful history: their climb to success, their tragedies, their amazing music, and their triumphs. As Jim Morrison would recommend, open the doors of your mind!
