Rarely has the concept of streaming media been more relevant to our society than right now. With millions of people the world over confined to their homes as a result of the coronavirus pandemic and global restrictions put in place regarding pretty much everything outside the home, we look to streaming services for entertainment — and The Doors fans are in luck, because at least four marquee productions about the band are currently available via Amazon Prime.
The legendary band’s social media channels passed the information along on Monday:

When You’re Strange is a 2009 documentary focusing on the band’s formation, rise, fall, high points, Jim Morrison’s overall presence and alcohol/drug use, and more. Narrated by Johnny Depp and directed by Tom DiCillo, the doc is well worth a watch:
Feast of Friends, meanwhile, came out in 1969 and was directed by Paul Ferrara, Babe Hill and the Doors themselves, with Ferrara documenting the band’s day-to-day activities and performances at points throughout 1968.
Classic Album: The Doors examines the impact and context of the band’s debut album. while Live at the Hollywood Bowl ’68 captures the band truly in its essence, delivering a powerhouse performance at the iconic Los Angeles venue that has gone on to be considered one of the band’s best and most crucial live moments.
