I'm with you! I got into them after watching that movie about them a while back. I was not around when they were playing. It always amazed me that they were a rock band without a bass player. Ray was great at playing the keyboard and whatever that thing was he played bass with (at the same time).

Well onstage they were a rock band without a bass player!! Manzarek played a fender rhodes bass, I think. In the studio they used some help from Doug Lubahn, a fine jazz bass man.

Of course when Manzarek and Krieger came back with the "Doors of the 21st Century" they had a bass player. Also Manzarek was no longer playing a Vox Continental Organ, but some modern keyboard.

Jerry Scheff was their bass player on the LA Woman album (and Leon Russell's former songwriting partner, Marc Benno played some guitar, as well)

Agreed...just as long as you know what was true from the movie and what wasn't...

Harvey Brooks, Lonnie Mack also played bass on Doors records. Jerry scheff says he was asked to go on the road with them but morrison died before that materialized.

Never will forget the huge parade of outlaws on Harleys rumbling along Bloor Street in Toronto escorting the Doors into Varsity Stadium for their show at the Toronto RockNRoll Revival in '69. Best entrance to a show I've ever seen.

my favorite album by them is THE SOFT PARADE for some reason.

its a shame bands like poison and motley crue, even though their music is fun, can hang around for 20+ years but all these great band lasted less than a decade

The Doors were great...they did their own thing and made musical history in a short time, IMHO. I grew up with Ray Manzarek's nephew Mike in Redondo Beach, Calif and met his Uncle Ray at one of his b-day parties back in the 70's. Very cool dude from what I remember. Later, I formed a short lived band with Mike on keys. Unfortunately, Mike passed away due to a drug overdose in the early 1990's....

Ain't that the TRUTH?

The Doors come in and out for me...Sometimes I listen to them constantly, other times I can go a year...but there is a feeling to their music that I absolutely love.

And one of the great openings to a live song...."Ladies and Gentlemen, from Los Angeles California.......The DOORS" sends chills up my spine just thinking about it.

Not a whole lot of Doors concert video out there, but there is some.

The Doors are Open is a good video of a concert set to images of the political turmoil of the time.

The Doors Live In Europe is another great video.

Although not completely about the Doors, check out MESSAGE TO LOVE, about the Isle of Wight Festival in 1970. There are two clips, one of "When The Music's OVer" and the other is "The End." Unfortunately, both are severely edited. There's always talk of a complete video of their set but nothing has ever materialized.

what about "the doors collection" or the dvd that has "no one gets out of here alive/soundstage performance" together?

My all time favorite band. Morrison's self destruction ended it. Love the scene in the movie when Manzarek realizes Jim is going to kill it for them - there is no hope.

Over the years, I have grown to love the music of The Doors; I feel a deep connection with it now. I think they were a brilliant band. I became aware of The Doors when I turned fourteen; I really didn't know what to make of them, particularly Jim. But I knew these four boys made exquisite sounding music.
It's been a long journey. Just like a previous poster stated, I would listen to them for weeks or months at a time, then go through long periods of time when I wouldn't listen to them at all. But after 9/11, I immersed myself in their music, and came to love and appreciate it on a deeper level than before. I love these boys!
Now that I'm older, I feel a compassion for Jim that I couldn't feel when I was younger. He was human--all too human. 27 is so young. Talent doesn't equal genius. There are many talented artists, but few geniuses. Genius is such an overused word, but it might apply to Jim Morrison.
