4 editions published between 2010 and 2016 in German and Multiple languages and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Kaum eine Band hat das Aufbegehren einer jungen Generation so verkörpert wie The Doors. Ihre unverwechselbaren Sounds, ihr Wille zu bedingungsloser künstlerischer Freiheit, ihr Hang zu den dunklen Seiten der Seele und Jim Morrisons Exzesse inspirierten Generationen von Jugendlichen: cool, rebellisch, unsterblich. Fast 40 Jahre nach dem Tod des charismatischen Rock-Poeten Jim Morrison hat die Band nichts von Ihrer Faszination eingebüßt. Mit den bisher ungezeigten Kurzfilmen von Morrison und noch nie gesehenem Archivmaterial, das die Doors auf der Bühne, hinter der Bühne und in privaten Momenten zeigte, lässt der preisgekrönte Regisseur Tom DiCillo den Mythos "Doors" wieder aufleben. Erzähler dieser einzigartigen Geschichte der Popkultur ist der Schauspieler Johnny Depp
