Born and raised in the San
Francisco Bay area, Dave Brock left Northern California in the
1980s to attend school at Long Beach State University.
While in college, Dave landed the lead role in The Jim Morrison
Rock Opera as the poetically tragic lead singer of The Doors.
The late singer's sister, Anna Morrison Graham, and her husband
Allan produced the production. Before the production's debut,
Brock was featured in many major publications including: Rolling
Stone Magazine, The Los Angeles Times Calendar and Bam
Magazine. There was quite a buzz in the industry about this
production and Dave proved to be quite a good vocalist and performer
when the production was ready for the public.
After the conclusion of Rock
Opera, Dave formed his own live musical stage show performing
the music of The Doors called "Wild Child." The live
concert show landed at the world famous Whisky a-go-go on the
sunset strip on July 3rd, 1986. It was a triple sellout on its
very first night. Reviews poured in calling this new show a "must
The LA Times said, "Wild
Child is a winner! What's amazing is that vocalist Dave Brock
sings like Morrison, enough to imperil the snowflake analogy
about no two sets of vocal chords to be able to produce the exact
same vocal tone." The Daily Bulletin said "Brock,
who bears more than a passing resemblance, evokes the Morrison
persona without being forced." Jim Ladd, the famous
Los Angeles KLOS FM radio DJ and Rock and roll critic described
Wild Child to his listeners. "These Guys are excellent,
not a cartoon version of The Doors but a very loving and respectful,
accurate and well done tribute to The Doors."
Since Wild Child debuted, the
act has been touring and playing at sold out national act venues
and festivals around the world. Wild Child became the mold that
"tribute bands" aspired to become, as they flooded
the market in the 1990's with good and bad impersonations of
In 1992, Brock was also noticed by film Director and Producer
Robert Zemeckis and played the part of Jim Morrison in the comedy
film "Death Becomes Her."
In 2010 Ray Manzarek and Robby
Krieger of The Doors, invited Dave to tour with them as their
vocalist on their concert engagements. This was perhaps the best
compliment Dave has ever received from anyone for his work. He
presently tours with them.
In recent years, Dave has picked
up the game of golf and has become a low handicapper. Dave's
interest in the game has also led him into avenues of Charity
and Pro-Am Golf events. Dave participated in The Bill Clinton
Humana Challenge Pro-Am PGA Tour in 2013 at PGA West, The
Patrick Warburton Celebrity Golf Tournament for St Jude Kids
and The Scott Medlock - Robby Krieger St. Jude Invitational.
Dave currently resides with
his family in Southern California, tours with Ray Manzarek and
Robby Krieger of The Doors and with Wild Child.
