The Doors Takeover The Standard Hollywood



Last week, The Standard and Morrison Hotel Gallery presented “The Doors Check –In to the Standard,” an exclusive photography exhibition celebrating one of the Sunset Strip’s great musical legacies, The Doors. Running through Thursday August 30th, this exhibition of historic yet timely images features the work of legendary rock photographer, Henry Diltz. Mr. Diltz shot the famed Morrison Hotel album cover and continued to collaborate with the band over the course of their career. The Doors had a transformative impact on popular music and popular culture. The band formed during the mid-’60s in Venice, CA and remains a vital piece to the legacy and history of the Sunset Strip. It was on the Strip that they got their start, first playing at the London Fog and soon after moving down the street to set up shop at the Whisky a Go-Go as the venue’s controversial house band. Their gig at the Whisky in the summer of 1966 helped The Doors sign to Elektra Records. Here, we honor the iconic band with a selection of their most recognized photographs.
