I realized that the real sound of the Doors was Ray and Robby all along. and the new lead singer did a credible job of Jim Morrison sound. I really enjoyed it. Thought I was at a Doors concert I will see them again if they're in the area.

Description

Ray Manzarek and Robby Krieger of The Doors bring the classic Doors music to the Grove of Anaheim.

The Doors were born in 1965, when Manzarek met fellow UCLA film student Jim Morrison on Venice Beach, California. The singer’s poetry was a perfect fit for the classically trained keyboardist’s musical ideas, and eventually they decided to form a band. When Robby Krieger and John Densmore came onboard as guitarist and drummer, The Doors were complete. Though several bassists auditioned for the group, none could match the bass lines provided by Manarek’s left hand. Signed to Elektra Records, The Doors released sex albums, a live album and a compilation before Morrison’s untimely demise in 1971.

Ray Manzarek was the architect of The Doors’ intoxicating sound. His evocative keyboard playing fused rock, jazz, blues, classical and an array of other styles into something utterly and dazzlingly new, creating a new sound in rock music.

Guitarist Robby Krieger penned a majority of The Doors’ music, including “Light My Fire”, “Love Me Two Times”, “Touch Me” and “Love Her Madly”.

After numerous writing, collaborating and producing projects by each, Manzarek and Krieger joined forces with Brett Scallions from the band Fuel to form the Manzarek-Krieger band and brought classic Doors material to sold-out crowds composed of longtime fans and newcomers alike.
