The Doors To Pay Tribute To Whisky A Go Go

The Los Angeles venue THE DOORS put on the rock map in the 1960s is set to open its doors for fans of the group to mark its induction into the Rock + Roll Hall Of Fame. Fabled club the Whisky A Go Go is to be honoured by the Hall Of Fame trustees with a plaque ceremony on 8 November (06) and venue bosses are turning their haunt into a Doors tribute museum for the night to pay tribute to the act that made the place famous. The Doors launched their career at the Whisky in the summer of 1966, where they played as the house band. Activities for the evening of the honour will include the signing of the book THE DOORS BY THE DOORS - the first authorised autobiography of the band. Bandmates RAY MANZAREK, ROBBY KRIEGER and JOHN DENSMORE will then unveil the Whisky A Go Go plaque. Curators of the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame And Museum will also unveil a teaser version of a Doors exhibit, BREAK ON THROUGH - THE LASTING LEGACY OF THE DOORS, which will serve as the museum's major presentation of 2007, marking the group's 40th anniversary. The Whisky A Go Go's Landmark Plaque, commemorating its contribution to rock 'n' roll history, is the first such dedication of a historic locale by the Hall Of Fame outside of the museum's home city of Cleveland, Ohio.
