Doors Get the Sign and the “Day of the Doors”


Robby Krieger and John Densmore, as well as family members of Jim Morrison and Ray Manzarek, who are both deceased, appeared under the Venice sign to hear Councilman Mike Bonin proclaim 4 January as “Day of the Doors.” Today marks the fiftieth anniversary of the launch of the Doors debut album called “The Doors.”

The Doors (Densmore, Krieger, Manzarek, and Morrison) are quite possibly the most legendary Los Angeles band of all time, according to their publicist. Formed in Venice, The Doors went on to become the definitive sound and voice of the 1960s and influence countless generations to come with classic songs such as “Light My Fire,” “Break On Through (To The Other Side),” and, of course, “L.A. Woman.”
