  THE DOORS QUARTERLY MAGAZINE came to life 1983, after Ray Manzarek himself had asked me to start a fanclub. Since then, the fanclub was going strong, and for a century it was the only DOORS FAN CLUB in the world. And it was the only one with a nicely printed 48-64 page magazine, which was entirely devoted to Jim Morrison and The Doors.

I had regular personal contacts to the three remaining Doors, Ray Manzarek, Robby Krieger and John Densmore, their management and their friends, including Frank Lisciandro, Jerry Hopkins, Henry Diltz and others. Personal friends of Jim Morrison, including his wife Patricia Kennealy-Morrison, contributed to this fanzine.

Robby Krieger: "THE DOORS QUARTERLY MAGAZINE is an important source for my research. I enjoy each issue."

The magazine came with a big-sized free poster or other supplements in each issue, usually had 4 or more color pages, contained news about the band, superrare, never-before-published photos, reprints of original articles from the Sixties, many rare documents, stories, features, reports, handwritings and memorabilia.

THE DOORS QUARTERLY MAGAZINE was published every 4-5 months, and a serious Doors fan never missed any issue. Collectors of Doors' memorabilia should know that each issue gave you information and reviews of records and books which were and still are hard to get in most parts of the world.

This is just to let you know what was published in some of the previous issues:

  • My exclusive interviews with Robby Krieger and Ray Manzarek
  • A long interview with Patricia Kennealy-Morrison
  • Exclusive tourist guides for Doors/Morrison fans to L.A., Paris and San Francisco including all addresses
  • Reviews of the latest bootleg CDs and LPs, official releases, books and radio shows
  • The original Jim Morrison Miami bail bond
  • The complete transcript of The Doors' Miami concert
  • Jim's birth certificate
  • Some songs in his own handwriting
  • Interviews with friends who knew him
  • Countless rare and exclusive photos, many of them in color
  • Exclusive reprints of Doors' concert posters
  • The truth about Jim's "Quiet Days In Paris"
  • The Miami testimonies of all four Doors
