July 3, Jim Morrison desapeared. The myth goes on. 40 years later, the world don't forget The Doors, the voice, the poet, the man.

In Paris, today two concerts. Ray Manzareket (organ) and Robby Krieger (guitar) two musicians of the band will play at Bataclan
They can not use anymore the name "The Doors", but they still play "Riders on the storm", "Roadhouse", "Light my fire".

Jim Morrison fans have the choice to have another concert, at La Cigale, a britsh tribute band The Doors Alive.

The documentary (2010) below about The Doors

It's the first feature documentary about The Doors comprised of entirely unseen archival footage. 

Narrated by Johnny Depp and directed by Tom DiCillo.

Two important articles about Jim Morrisson - Le Monde et Expresso newspapers:

"Quarante après sa mort, le mystère Jim Morrison reste entier" - Le | Culture (French language)

" Jim Morrison continua vivo (fotogaleria) - | Actualidade (Portuguese language)

And of course, you can listen the soundtrack here

“I can state definitively that one of the things I do remember is buying THE DOORS first album the day it came out and then listening to it about ten or twelve times in a row.  Both sides.  Every song.  I’ve been a fan ever since.  This movie is the story of the band but it is also an insight into a moment in time that will never be repeated.”

Dick Wolf (producer)
