47 Years Ago: The Doors’ Debut Album Released

When the Doors entered a Hollywood recording studio to make their debut album at the end of August 1966, they knew what they wanted. Months of serving as house band at the Whisky a Go Go had sharpened their playing and performing skills to the point where one member of the quartet could abruptly swerve toward a new direction and the others would follow without missing a beat.

46 Years Ago: Jim Morrison of the Doors Maced and Arrested in New Haven

One of the most mythologized and romanticized figures in rock history, Doors front man Jim Morrison possessed a deep-seated anti-authoritarian streak that repeatedly landed him in trouble. On Dec. 9, 1967, the rebellious rocker was arrested at a Doors gig in New Haven, Conn., earning him the dubious distinction of being, as far as we know, the first rock star ever arrested onstage during a performance.

Doors Documentaries Streaming Free for Jim Morrison’s Birthday

Jim Morrison would have turned 70 on Dec. 8, and while it's impossible to imagine what he might have done over the past few decades if he hadn't passed away in 1971, he'd probably have Internet access if he were still alive -- which he could use to stream a trio of free Doors films from Qello.

44 Years Ago: Jim Morrison Arrested in Arizona

There's no denying that Doors singer Jim Morrison was one of the most charismatic front men of his generation. Unfortunately he was one of the most troubled, too. The singer had a terrible alcohol problem that played a big role in his repeated arrests, including one on Nov. 11, 1969 in Arizona that resulted from Morrison and a friend drunkenly heckling a flight crew on a commercial airliner.

45 Years Ago: Ray Manzarek Fills in For a Passed Out Jim Morrison

Jim Morrison made a career of nodding off at inopportune moments. He passed out when the rest of the Doors were expecting him in the studio. He passed out in the studio. He passed out before concerts and after concerts. And sometimes, like on Sept. 15, 1968, he passed out during concerts -- onstage as the audience and his bandmates watched him collapse into an unwashed mound of rock-star excess.

45 Years Ago: The Doors’ ‘Waiting for the Sun’ Album Released

Following up a classic debut album as well as a stunning sophomore effort is no easy task. Just ask the Doors. Their self-titled first album from 1967 was still riding high when the follow-up LP, 'Strange Days,' hit shelves at the end of the year. Things were moving quickly for the Los Angeles quartet. As 1968 approached, the band marched forward to work on their third album.
