HISTORY OF THE GROUP

 

The group slowly got together in 1966 . Jim Morrison and Ray Manzarek  were UCLA film students who meet and decided to form a band. Ray was in a band called Rick and the Ravens with his brother Rick. Robby Krieger and John Densmore were playing with The Psychedelic Ramgers and knew Ray Manzarek. In August of 1965 Densmore joined The Ravens and they recorded a song . In Septemeber of 1965 is when they recruited guitarist Robby Krieger and the line-up was complete  for the group which would be known as The Doors, Jim Morrison,-Vocals, Ray Manzarek-keyboards, Robby Krieger-Guitar -John  Densmore- drums. They took the name THE DOORS from a book by Alous Huxley called The Doors of Perception. The group did not have a bass player like most groups but used Ray to play bass lines on his left hand as he played lead keyboards with his right hand. ray used a new type of organ called Fender Rhodes bass keyboard.In 1966 the group was the house band at the Whisky a Go Go night club.  Producer Paul A. Rothchild  saw The Doors playing at the Whisky a Go Go and signed them to Elekra Records on August 18, 1966 and the group was fired from the club on August 21 due to Morrison used some profanity in the song THE END at the club. Many of the Doors songs were composed by Morrison and Kreiger and the rest of the group would help with the melody ,harmonic and rhythm sections. In the Studio the group did use a session Bass Guitarist. In September of 1966 the group released it first single named- Break On Through  which did ok but the second single, which was released in the Summer of 1967 ,  was named Light My Fire which put the group on top of the  ROCK               

world.  This also put the group right up there in the AM radio world and in the FM radio world which at this time was called the underground scene. The group was known as a counterculture groups. The group was known as a rebellious live act.  Morrison became a sex symbol as he always wore his leather tight pants and use to rip his shirt off in the middle of his act. During this era it was privilege to be asked to play the Ed Sullivan Show which was on CBS.  The Columbia Broadcasting System (CBS) network censors demanded that Morrison change the lyrics to LIGHT MY FIRE by  altering the line GIRL,WE COULDN'T GET MUCH HIGHER  to GIRL WE COULDN'T GET MUCH BETTER just as they did when The Stones performed their song Let's Spend The Night Together and changed the words to Let's Spend Some Time Together and group sang it that way.  However when the Doors played on The ED Sullivan show on September 17 ,1967 , Morrison did not change the words even though the group was booked for seven more proformances on the Sullivan Show. When the song was over the group walked over to Ed Sullivan and he would not even shake their hand.  According to Manzarek, the band was told they would never be invited back on the show again, Morrson replied, "So what ,We Just did The Ed Sullivan Show"  the Group also performed their new single "People are Strange'. Then in December of the same year Morrsion was arrested in New Haven ,Connecticut for bad mouthing the police to the audience.  Morrsion was also taking off stage in Miami after he took off his clothes. After a late in December appearance on the Jonathan Winters show which the show edited a comedy scatch in the middle of their song Back Door Man the group stop with TV appearances. The group went on to continuing touring around the country. There was a controversy over The Doors single in 1968 which was their second largest hit called "HELLO I LOVE YOU"  which critics said sound like the Kinks song " All Of The Day And All Of The Night"   The Doors were a American Rock Group formed in 1965 and signed to Electrra Records in 1966 and continued on with hit after until 1971 when Jim Morrison died  but interest in the Doors music has remained high and the group has sold 76 million albums worldwide and still sells a 1 million records a year. The Group released two other albums after Jim Morrison died which the first was called "OTHER VOICES" and the second called "FULL CIRCLE" . There are still members of the original group who tour today!!  Listen to their music which will never end!!
