The Doors Release Reimagined New Video for 'L.A. Woman'
“The Year Of The Doors” kicked off in January with the release of the two-CD L.A. Woman: 40th Anniversary Edition from Rhino and the DVD/Blu-Ray Mr. Mojo Risin’: The Story Of L.A. Woman from Eagle Rock Entertainment.
To continue the celebration, the iconic band has released a reimagined music video for the song “L.A. Woman,” originally released on the album of the same name -- the band's last -- in 1971. The new clip, which debuted on their YouTube page March 19, features professional skateboarders Kenny Anderson, Alex Olson, and Braydon Szafranski as they zip through Los Angeles passing symbolic spots from the The Doors famed career -- including Venice Beach, the Hollywood Bowl and the Whiskey A-Go-Go, among other historic locations.
Two-time Emmy nominee Matt Goodman directed the video, which marks the first time an edited version of the track “L.A. Woman” has ever been released.
