Artist Focus: The Doors

Some artists leave a legacy that stretches far beyond a great single or a number 1 album. 

Artist Focus is a new series hosted by the extended Melodic Distraction family that deep dives into the life and times of the musicians that have defined the sound of modern music. From the stone cold classics to the unearthed gems and forgotten B-sides, our community tribute an hour of music by a single artist that has had a notable impact on their life.

This week, Ché Wilson presents a celebration of The Lizard King…

As far as the many 60s-pop groups go, there were only a few who made the final cut for legendary legacy: The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, and The Beach Boys… and perhaps The Doors also are deserving of such a position. But with so much mystique behind The Doors, it can be hard to pinpoint what set them apart from the rock ‘n’ roll groups they were brushing shoulders with.

Join Ché as he takes you on a concise hour-long trip through the history of one of psychedelia’s greatest, The Doors.
