The Doors – RIAA Platinum ‘Waiting For the Sun’ Award, Presented to manager Danny Sugerman
An original RIAA Platinum Record Award for The Doors 1969 classic album The Soft Parade, presented to longtime Doors associate and manager Danny Sugerman (1954-2005).
Danny Sugerman met and began working for The Doors at the remarkably young age of 13, first handling their fan mail and organizing their clippings and scrapbook, and later writing press releases. He was close to Jim Morrison, and after Morrison’s death, became Ray Manzarek’s manager, and then manager of The Doors, overseeing their catalog releases and legacy.
Sugerman wrote several books about Jim Morrison and The Doors, including the bestselling Morrison biography No One Here Gets Out Alive (co-written with Jerry Hopkins), The Doors: The Illustrated History, and his Doors-heavy autobiography Wonderland Avenue. He was also a consultant to Oliver Stone for the film The Doors.
We acquired this award directly from Danny Sugerman’s widow, Fawn Hall, and her signed letter of authenticity is included, as is Recordmecca’s written lifetime guarantee of authenticity.
The award is completely original and in excellent condition, with just a bit of light wear to the frame. 176 3/4″ x 20 3/4″. The Soft Parade was certified platinum on June 10, 1987 which dates this award as a vintage original.
An extraordinary opportunity to obtain a genuine Doors record award with rock solid provenance.
