Miley Cyrus, Dennis Quaid and The Struts Join Robby Krieger to Celebrate The Doors’ 50th Anniversary of ‘Morrison Hotel’ at The Sunset Marquis

The Doors’ iconic album, Morrison Hotel, was released exactly 50 years ago, on February 9th, 1970. On the eve of the album’s half-centennial anniversary, rock stars collided at West Hollywood’s Sunset Marquis where music lovers and legends fêted the 50th anniversary of Morrison Hotel. Hosted by industry trailblazers John Varvatos and Timothy White at the Sunset Marquis Hotel and sponsored by Jack Daniels, the homecoming celebration paid homage to the record’s release 50 years ago with a poolside performance helmed by The Doors’ guitarist and co-founder, Robby Krieger.

Robby Krieger and Tangiers Blues Band – along with an impressive roster of acclaimed musicians lent their respective talents to some of The Doors’ time-honored greatest hits. Miley Cyrus and producer Andrew Watt covered “Road House”, The Struts’ chilling take on “Riders on The Storm” and Dennis Quaid brought the house down with his version of “L.A. Woman”. Other performers included Badflower, Gary Clark, Jr., Nicole Atkins, Chris Voss, Slim Jim Phantom, The Eagles of Death Metal, guitarist Jimmy Vavino, Michael Bolton and Alex Greenwald.

Morrison Hotel Gallery also celebrated its 20-year anniversary with the opening of a new photography exhibit in the gallery located inside the hotel’s lobby. On public view, through February 23rd, the exhibition leans heavily on rare outtakes from the photographer and co-founder of the gallery, Henry Diltz’s impromptu Morrison Hotel session… that almost didn’t happen. The exhibit also features another 20+ fine art prints – a monumental glimpse inside The Doors’ sensational career, spanning the gamut from iconic to never-before-seen.
