The Doors Break On Through to the iPad Side

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.
