We just passed the 43rd anniversary of the death of Jim Morrison and have seen the publication of a new guide, “Jim Morrison - Complete Paris Guide/Jim Morrison’s Quiet Days in Paris” (see related articles below). While Paris was the end for Jim Morrison, L.A. was the beginning for Morrison and The Doors. For Doors fans going to L.A. you’ll want to check out L.A. Woman Tours and their Strange Days Tour: A Journey through The Doors’ L.A. which will be running next Saturday July 12, 2014.

The tour will take you to the place where The Doors started on Venice Beach to the very beginning where Jim Morrison was living on top of Dennis Jakob’s rooftop where he wrote the poems that would become the basis of The Doors first two albums and the start of a rock ‘n’ roll legend. Other Doors sites include Sunset Sound where The Doors recorded their first two albums. If you want to visit early clubs The Doors played, the tour includes The Whisky a go-go and the Hullabloo. If you want to check out Jim Morrison’s haunts there’s Barney’s Beanery, and the Chateau Marmont. Then there’s the “Jim Morrison triangle”, which includes the Alta Cineaga Motel, which is across the street from where The Doors’ offices were (and where they recorded “L.A. Woman”) which is close by to where Pam Courson’s boutique Themis was.

A new tour is booking right now, for July 12, so if you’re visiting L.A. in the next week or live there and have never seen The Doors sights (people have lived in New York their whole lives and never visited the Statue of Liberty). For more information visit L.A. Woman Tours. Tickets are only $60.00 you can get your tickets today at Brown Paper Tickets.
