The Doors

It has been more than 40 years since the death of The Doors' charismatic frontman Jim Morrison. Despite the general view of The Doors as a historic band that was part of the unchangeable makeup of the psychedelic rock culture of the 1960s, appetite for the band continues to the modern day.

More than 43 years after the death of Jim Morrison, the band's enigmatic frontman, Krieger is still making music and continuing the legacy of the iconic band.

Robby Krieger's Jam Kitchen will be performing Sunday, Sept. 28, as the headliner for the Sea Starry Night Jam, a benefit for the Roundhouse Aquarium in Manhattan Beach.

Featured Book

The Doors On The Road
by Greg Shaw provides a comprehensive timeline of live performances, reviews of the shows, stage antics of the performers, gossip related to the events, and recording sessions.

In a way, we came along at a weird time because we came kind of at the tail end of the rock revival from England. You know, they'd already done it. So everyone was saying, "Hey, look at that, they did it." I think it was the success of those English groups that gave hope to a lot of musicians over here, saying, "Pssh, we can do the same thing!"

—Jim Morrison
