The Doors: When You're Strange

EPISODE:

Episode Info

Johnny Depp narrates this phenomenal history of the Doors, the rock group responsible for such classics as "Light My Fire" and "L.A. Woman." It utilizes only footage shot from the band's 1965 formation to singer Jim Morrison's 1971 death, including a wealth of previously unseen clips. As Depp says, "To some, Jim was a poet, his soul trapped between heaven and hell. To others, he was just another rock star who crashed and burned. But this much is true: You can't burn out if you're not on fire."
