April 1966

Throughout April: London Fog – West Hollywood, CA
The Doors continue at the small club honing their skills and original sound. Jim is smoking pot all day, drinking all night, he loves acid and pops speeders when he needs them often while on stage. He is still self conscious performing but the drugs and alcohol help release his unique personality as he begins to repel and attract with his antics both on and off stage. He is stirring up attention and becoming the most talked about singer in LA. The band is hungry for success and advancement and walk up to the premier club on the strip, The Whisky, between sets to see what’s going on. Jim seeks out the manager, Ronnie Haran, incessantly and tries to convince her to come see them play.

 

Thu. May 5: London Fog – West Hollywood, CA (DU)
After persistent ploys by Jim, Ronnie Haran attends her first Doors show at the London Fog and ends up inviting the band to auditions the following Monday. Around this time, The Doors are informed that they will be let go after this weekend’s performances by the London Fog due to financial problems and a lack of audience.

“The owner of The London Fog eventually said, ‘Listen you guys, you’ve been here for four months now, and I’m afraid we’re going to have to get a new house band.’ We thought, my God, what are we gonna do now? As the fates would have it, Ronnie Haran, the booking agent for the Whiskey A-Go-Go, came down to hear us, immediately fell in love with Jim, loved the music and asked, ‘How would you guys like to be the house band at the Whiskey?’ We said, ‘Incredible – it just so happens we’re free. Our engagement here is ended,’ and we went from making $5 a night to union scale, $135 a week each – we felt like we were in heaven! We played with Them, Love, The Seeds, The Turtles, The Byrds. We were the openers.” (1972)
