Pro skaters in Doors’ ‘L.A. Woman’ video
By Keith Hamm
A trio of pro skaters headed up by Chocolate's Kenny Anderson take center stage in the recently released music video for the Doors classic "L.A. Woman."
As rock fans celebrate four decades of the band's sixth and final studio album, the two-CD "L.A. Woman: 40th Anniversary" hit the shelves earlier this year, accompanied by the DVD/Blu-Ray "Mr. Mojo Risin': The Story of L.A. Woman" and the new video starring Anderson, with teammate Alex Olson and Baker pro Braydon Szafranski.
The three friends were filmed over the course of a single weekend skating locations that play significant roles in the history of the band, including Venice Beach, the Hollywood Bowl, and the Sunset Strip outside the Whiskey A Go Go nightclub.
"It was cool getting to hang out with [Doors guitarist] Robby Krieger," says Olson, 26, who was born and raised in Santa Monica.
