Unlocking The Doors
Unlocking The Doors are a powerhouse showcase with amazing production and visuals that will take you back in time to revisit the band that was THE DOORS!
The Doors were among the most controversial, influential and unique rock acts of the 1960s and beyond, mostly because of Morrison's wild, poetic lyrics and charismatic but unpredictable stage persona. Unlocking The Doors frontman, Richie, sets out to capture Morrison's magic whilst leaving some of the cliche' surrounding Jim behind.
Richie is backed by Sandy on Organ and Keyboard Bass. Sandy has set out to reproduce the unmistakable sound of the Doors Organist, Ray Manzarek. Often considered the genius behind The Doors sound Manzarek's influence on rock music is as relevant today as it was back in the late 60s. Sandy has dedicated herself to mastering Ray's almost split personality style of playing. Hypnotic Bass fills with one hand and stabbing syncopation with the other, through to some of Ray's signature melodic lines such as the opening of "Light My Fire".
On guitar we have Mick fingerpicking his Gibson SG standard to emulate The Doors guitarist Robbie Krieger's wonderful Legato style. From the beautifully atmospheric tremolo of "Riders on the Storm" to the grinding attack of "5 to 1", Mick plays homage to Robbie's style that is impossible to pigeon hole.
Finally on Drums we have Chris completing the lineup for Unlocking The Doors. John Densmore's unique fusion of Jazz, Rock and Latin beats still stands unsurpased today for the eclectic signature it placed on The Doors sound. Chris has dedicated himself to unlocking Densmore's style and providing the back beat that is hard to master.
