Love ’em or hate ’em, The Doors were one of the most iconic rock bands of the ’60s, inspiring untold numbers of future musicians, wannabe poets, and dorm-room-poster aficionados. Nearly 50 years after forming, there aren’t many original members of The Doors left: Jim Morrison, of course, died in Paris in 1971, while keyboardist Ray Manzarek died earlier this year. That leaves guitarist-songwriter Robby Krieger and drummer John Densmore, the latter of whom will be making an appearance at the Greenfield Exclusive Company Sunday, August 11.
Densmore is currently on an in-store tour in support of his new book, The Doors: Unhinged. According to a press release:
The Doors: Unhinged is an incendiary story written by a member of one of the most important rock bands of all time. The book calls into question the logic for selling out art for short term financial gain, challenging whether it even makes good business sense to do it. Through The Doors: Unhinged John raises the big questions in life. Do we stick by our friends and the agreements we make if it becomes convenient not to do it anymore? These are all big subjects for anyone who moves into adulthood and John nails it with this book.
The free event is scheduled for August 11 at 2 p.m. Densmore will sign copies of his book and one other Doors-related item.
