The legacy of The Doors is enormous and a testament to this is the number of awards and accolades that have come their way. These include induction in to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award, and the Library of Congress selected their debut for inclusion in the National Recording Registry based on its cultural, artistic and historical significance. As of 2017, Los Angeles city council has given them their own day, ‘The Day of the Doors’ every year. There was even a Hollywood biopic, directed by Oliver Stone on them.
In more recent years, Krieger has embraced painting, and you can see one of his most recent works on the cover of his album and as he reflects on ‘The Ritual..’ he says, “I kinda write for myself, I don’t expect to have any more hits like ‘Light My Fire’” laughing he continues, “but you never know.”
