"Doors' Door For Sale"

source -

The front door to the master bedroom from the home of Rock legend Jim Morrison lived in for six years of his life is up for sale on auction website

The door, which fronted the Clearwater, Florida home owned by The Doors star's grandparents Paul and Caroline Morrison, was carefully removed by contractors working for building company Triangle Development when the house was demolished to make way for a condominium project, which is currently under development.

Triangle bosses, realizing the importance of the door, preserved it and other artifacts to memorialize the late singer/songwriter.

In a tribute to Morrison, St. Petersburg, Florida artist Judith Dazzio painted the door with the mural she calls When The Music's Over.

A doorbell on the frame plays three different short clips from the song when pressed.

The auction ends on October 28; the current bid stands at $3,551. Proceeds from the auction will go to charity.

Thanks very much for your post, Ace!

I'm with Triangle Development, the company that donated the door, and I happened to find your post and just wanted to let everyone know that the door up for auction is actually the master bedroom door (not the front door) from Jim Morrison's grandparent's house.

The person who wins the auction will also receive a commemorative book which shows all the other artifacts in the Jim Morrison Home Legacy Series and photos of them in their original location in the house, as well as a notarized authentification certificate and DVD showing the removal of the items from the house.

As Ace mentioned, the eBay auction ends Sunday, Oct. 28th, and as of this morning was up to $3,551. Proceeds benefit The Clearwater Jazz Holiday, the largest free jazz event outside of New Orleans, attended by over 60,000 people every year.
