Just two nights after William Adair and Walter Egan’s openings at Mr Musichead Gallery in Los Angeles, Adair went to the legendary Whisky A Go Go to create a Doors Door. The Doors are known for having their start at the Whisky A Go Go. There happened to be a Doors tribute show featuring the band Wild Child going on and the crowd at the Whisky A Go Go was very excited to participate in the Golden Doors to Infinity project by marking and drawing on the gilded door brought to the concert by Adair, in honor of The Doors.
