The Doors spent two years of performing in clubs establishing that fine grain of what would be their repertoire for years to come. Jim Morrison, Robbie Krieger, Ray Manzarek and John Densmore eventually 'broke on through' with their first album in 1967.The Doors were a rare breed, immediate success, controversial,in fact; their catalog is a sea of music (a few exceptions) that stemmed form being critically acclaimed yet commercially successful which, no doubt a rare combination both then and today.

After their debut album, The Doors they went on to record eight more studio albums which includes three albums released after Jim's death in 1971 and four live albums.

After Morrison passed the surviving members live performances were few and far between. Since 2002, Ray Manzarek and Robbie Krieger kept The Doors music alive naming themselves 'The Doors of the 21st Century.' That named changed after John Densmore sued them over the use of The Doors name so they became 'The Riders on the Storm.'

With the passing of Jim Morrison and the recent passing of Ray Manzarek, the music of The Doors will still be forever in our ears and that in itself is priceless.
