Love The Doors? There's An App For That

(Radio.com) A new iPad app tracks the careers of the rock legends The Doors, with an immersive multimedia, cloud integration and a ready connection to Facebook.

But what makes this app extra special, is the creator's relationship to the band. It was not envisioned by the next up-and-coming software developer or consultant, but rather 81-year-old Jac Holzman, founder of Elektra Records.

Holzman signed The Doors in 1966, sixteen years after starting the record company as a teenager. He remains one of the music industry's most passionate and persevering tech nuts.

"I'm always interested in how I can take technology and make it work for music," said Holzman recently in an interview with The New York Times. "That's what my life's been about, from the earliest days of Elektra. How can we make better records? Not everybody's going to appreciate everything that's in this app, but I think most people will." More details about what the app includes here.
