The Doors – Artistic Vision
“The Doors – Artistic Vision” offers what no other book about the Doors does – a comprehensive look at the Doors as artists.
While Jim Morrison’s notoriety has become the stuff legends are made of, it is the group’s artistic vision that keeps their music alive and selling to each new generation of listeners.
The Doors insisted their work was art, and for them each album they created was as integrated a composition as a classical painting or sculpture. They made six original studio albums and there the magical tapestry of the Doors’ sound emerged from the four members functioning as a communal, creative spirit – keyboardist Ray Monzarek, guitarist Robby Krieger and drummer John Densmore weaving their musical expressions with Morrison’s lyrics.
“The Doors – Artistic Vision” fashions together the patterns in the music and lyrics and shares some of the stories that begot the songs.
