Empty Mirror contributor Jim Cherry – and Doors expert extraordinaire – writes,
I’m making an upcoming library presentation and I hope you all can make it, and/or if you know anybody that lives in the area I hope you can forward this on!
The Doors Examined is a compilation of articles from the first four years as The Doors Examiner. Subjects of articles run the gamut from Doors history (and pre-history), to some of the people that surrounded The Doors and Jim Morrison, but it doesn’t stop there. “The Doors Examined” follows The Doors and its members into the 21st century with their projects (reviews of Ray Manzarek and Robby Krieger’s solo projects), and their working with newer artists such as Skrillex, and Tech N9ne.
The 90 minute presentation covers the entire history of The Doors from early influences, UCLA days, and touches upon as many of the significant events that made up The Doors career as can be covered in the 90 minutes. It is a unique look at The Doors that doesn’t follow the usual outline or guidelines for a presentation. Following that is a question and answer period as well as an opportunity to purchase my books “The Doors Examined” and/or “The Last Stage” ($15 per book)
“The Doors Examined” presentation will be at the Tinley Park Library at 7851 Timber Drive Tinley Park, IL 60477, March 12th at 7pm. You can register for the event at: the Tinley Park Library events page. It is a free event. If you live in the area, I hope you will attend or if you have any friends, family or associates into The Doors, turn them on to my presentation.
Keep rocking everyone!
Writing under the influence of Rock ‘n’ Roll!
