Ray Manzarek Robby Krieger, John Densmore, and Jim Morrison, a.k.a The Doors, are presented collectively again in a $45 oral-history, retrospective coffee-table book The Doors by the Doors with Ben Fong Torres that was published by Hyperion in November. This joint effort marks the first time the remaining members of the band have collaborated to offer commentary on their influential and mysterious legacy.
It is the first and only authorized band autobiography done in conjunction with reporter and former Rolling Stone session editor, Ben Fong-Torres, that truly seeks to rectify questions left unanswered by the many secondhand accounts and speculative stories that have been written about the Doors? infamous past. The collection includes rare and never-before-seen color and black-and-white photos and interviews with all the members of the band, their families, and friends, including Jim?s father, Adm. George S. Morrison.
