1971 Doors Contract Amendment, Why did 'And The Doors' not trust Jim?
Of all the information that has come out from this recent trial for the heart and soul of The Doors this bit makes me most uncomfortable.
Sub Section 11 Amendment to the Old Doors Partnership Agreement March 11th 1971
”On March 11th 1971 the parties executed a one page amendment to the Old Doors Partnership Agreement. It sets forth a specific provision prohibiting the use of the name, The Doors, by any partner upon termination of the partnership for any reason other than the death of a partner. The amendment was prompted by a concern that after L.A. Woman was delivered to Elektra, Morrison might leave the band and form another band in Europe using the name 'The Doors.' Manzarek testified that he signed the one-page amendment when it was prepared but did not read it and did not understand its purpose. Abe Somer testified that he recalled some concern about the band splintering, and that the amendment, as well as all of the band's agreements, were explained to the band members before they signed." The court found Mr. Somers' testimony to be credible and accepts it as true."
