Sunday mornings are meant for kicking back, relaxing, doing a little light reading and watching videos of your favorite band, or at least one member playing a featured set. In that vein let’s start with a little Doors history.
The Doors at the London Fog: Late February or early March 1966 The Doors audition for and become the house band at The London Fog. The London Fog was a hole in the wall nightclub a half block west of the more prestigious Whisky a go-go but for The Doors it was a place they could work out there songs. The London Fog didn’t pull many customers in and The Doors set of original songs wasn’t very long so they started soloing on some songs the end result being songs that would forever make The Doors reputation such as “The End” and “When the Music’s Over”. Here’s the full article on The Doors at the London Fog.
Star on Walk of Fame: February 2007 The Doors get their star on the Hollywood walk of fame (see video above). Ray Manzarek and Robby Krieger were there for the ceremony (drummer John Densmore was recording with Iranian musician Reza). Also on hand to accept for the Morrison family was Jim Morrison’s nephew, Dylan Graham.
