Whisky a Go-Go - Los Angeles, California

In November 2006 in Hollywood, California the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum honored the Whisky A Go-Go. Surviving members of the Doors - Ray Manzarek, Robby Krieger, and John Densmore, who were resident performers at the club along with the late Jim Morrision - were all present for the ceremony. The evening featured a memorial reading of Jim Morrison’s poetry, by Perry Farrell and others.

“Since opening in 1964, the Whisky A Go-Go has been one of the world’s most prominent and important rock and roll venues. Its stage has served as the launching pad for generations of music legends, including Johnny Rivers, Frank Zappa. Love, the Doors, Buffalo Springfield, Guns N’ Roses and Motley Crue.”
