“This is the original Hard Rock Cafe in Downtown, LA. It opened in the 30’s. After the Morrison Hotel album photo shoot, Jim wanted to get a drink, so Henry and The Doors headed for Skid Row where there were plenty of bars, including this one. A picture of this bar was on the back of their album, which led to a phone call from London asking to use the name for a new cafe: ‘The Hard Rock Cafe.’”


Ray Manzarek and The Doors. (The poster image at, as well it should be!) Nice sandals, man.

I originally posted this for Ray, but I just noticed Jim looking FIRE back there too.
