It all started when Jac Holzman, who signed The Doors to Elektra Records way back in 1966, started to think about how to turn the legendary LA band’s boxed set into a digital wonderland. The result is a brand new $4.99 digital App from Warner Music Group’s Rhino Entertainment.
In the official announcement, Holzman has a cool description for The Doors App. He suggests that it’s like a “1500-piece jigsaw puzzle in three dimensions, which arrives on your iPad, elegantly pre-assembled.”
If you click “The Story” button, there is a treasure trove of photos, videos and interviews to light your nostalgic fire. As well as essays by everyone from the late Hunter S. Thompson to Patti Smith.
There’s also a graphic novel version of the “Miami incident,” a.k.a. as false accusations that lead singer Jim Morrison exposed himself at a 1969 concert. Artist Dean Haspiel did the illustrations for the novel from words by Holzman’s son Adam.
