ORIGINAL JIM MORRISON THE DOORS SOUND EQUIPMENT

We're lucky to have former Doors road manager Vince Treanor here to answer fan questions and share some of his memories. Ask Vince about anything related to the equipment The Doors used, stage set-ups, specific concerts, the band after Jim's death, and working on the Oliver Stone movie.

Yup, everything was sold and the slides were sent to Vince, since they were personal slides and none Doors related, as he told me.
