Book signing with The Doors' drummer at Bull Moose in Scarborough 4/20 at 2 p.m.

Somewhere today, a 15-year-old kid is buying his first Doors album and is listening to the beautifully dark and mysterious songs with the same sense of wonder felt by generations of kids before him. As he digs deeper into the band's catalog and explores their history, he will attach a personal value to the band's name. The songs will accompany him during pivotal moments in his life and memories will be made with The Doors providing the soundtrack.   

As Doors drummer John Densmore sees it, part of his job today is to make sure that the value placed upon the band's name, image and music by that 15 year old, and millions of other Doors fans like him, remains untarnished.

Inside Record Store Day

50,000,000 music fans can't be wrong  

It's one of the biggest parties in all of music, and this year's celebration promises to be the most impressive to date. On Saturday, April 20, music lovers around the world will come together for Record Store Day, an event that has grown beyond even its creator's wildest imagination.   

In 2007, Chris Brown, head of marketing for nine Bull Moose stores in Maine and two in New Hampshire, came up with the idea of setting aside a special day to celebrate independently owned record stores and the customers who love to inhabit them. Five hundred stores around the country liked the idea enough to join for the event's inaugural in 2008, and within four years the party had blown wide open with more than 1,500 stores in 21 countries on five continents taking part.
