It's been a year of fortieth anniversaries here at Rolling Stone, as we've looked back at the Summer of Love and the beginnings of the magazine in 1967. That year also marked the debut album from Jim Morrison's Doors, an event being celebrated at Cleveland's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum with a special exhibit titled Break on Through -- The Lasting Legacy of the Doors. The exhibition, the first ever to be endorsed by the Morrison estate and the surviving members of the band, features the handwritten lyrics to "Not to Touch the Earth," Morrison's first-ever childhood poem, Robby Krieger's custom Gibson guitar, a piece of drummer John Densmore's original kit, a promotional record that came with purchases of toothpaste and shampoo and even Ray Manzarek's marriage certificate. Get a close-up look at these pieces of memorabilia and more by checking out our Break on Through photo gallery.
