The Doors by Oliver Stone ( Visual )
11 editions published between 1991 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 510 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A homage to 60's rock group The Doors. Doubles as a biography of the group's late singer, the 'Electric Poet' Jim Morrison. Follows Jim from his days as a film student in Los Angeles to his death in Paris in 1971, at the age of 27. Shown as a shy, though often obnoxious and crude, persona. He was a man who is fascinated with death, with man's will to have power, and how life gets very painful without the chemicals to open the mind

Tommy was performed live in 1989 at The Universal Amphitheatre in Los Angeles, with special guests Elton John, Phil Collins, Billy Idol, Patti LaBelle, and Steve Winwood.

This live version of Quadrophenia, from the 1996/1997 U.S. Tour was the first time it was performed as Townshend and Daltrey had visualized it, with live action and featuring a then-unknown Alex Langdon in a spellbinding performance as Jimmy, the disillusioned Mod. Disc three includes "Live Hits" from their second set at Universal Amphitheatre in Los Angeles in 1989, the Quadrophenia encore from the 1996-97 tour, and from Giants Stadium in New Jersey in 1989, in addition to an interview with Billy Idol
