Mr. Jampol, who also manages the Doors, as well as the estates of Jim Morrison, Tupac Shakur, Henry Mancini, Otis Redding, Peter Tosh, the Ramones and Rick James, releases records, creates merchandising lines, and produces live theater, among other projects that expose the deceased legends to new audiences.
"I manage these artists exactly as if they were alive still," says Mr. Jampol
"The only thing we don't do is tour and write new music."
Since the artists can't tour, Mr. Jampol
is doing the next best thingâ€"making inroads on Broadway, where actors can stand in for the singers, as in the case of Ms. Joplin, whose show, "A Night With Janis Joplin," toured for two years before coming to Broadway this fall, where it's doing respectable business.
In the early 2000s, Mr. Jampol was working as a music manager and teaching classes on the music industry at UCLA.
Danny Sugerman, a friend of Mr. Jampol's and the manager for the Doors, would come to him seeking career advice.
When Mr. Sugerman died in 2005, Mr. Jampol took over as their manager.
The three remaining members of the Doors at the time, Ray Manzarek (who has since died), Robby Krieger, and John Densmore, gave Mr. Jampol a history lesson in their music and its meaning.
In turn, Mr. Jampol
learned how to manage the band and Mr. Morrison's estate without cashing in on dubious projects.
Under Mr. Jampol's
guidance, the band has sold across all platforms: Album sales have increased 12% this year over last, said Mr. Jampol

Doors: L.A. Woman 5-disc Super Deluxe Edition cancelled | superdeluxeedition
The title was initially announced back in September, by Doors' Manager Jeff Jampol, and since then an initial, somewhat optimistic, release date of 24 November has come and gone and a new release date of the end of January 2012 was announced.
In fact, despite the band taking hundreds of pre-orders (with payment up-front) it seems that Rhino Records has decided that it is not a commercially viable project.
To quote Jampol
from the official Doors online forum: "there are concerns at their end" (Rhino) and "they want to be sure that not only is the market there, but do we have a place to distribute them?"
The solution looking most likely to replace the proposed 5-disc Super Deluxe Edition
, is a much cheaper 3-disc set to accompany the still-on-the-schedule 2-disc L.A. Woman 40th Anniversary special edition.
One suspects that this is also the view of Jampol
and the Doors'
management, since they were confident enough to announce it and take pre-orders back in September.
There has been the suggestion of special exclusive extras to make up for the patience/loyalty of the pre-orderers, and Jampol
has made a point of promising a no-quibble money back policy to anyone who wishes to cancel and get a refund.

He manages the Doors and the estate of the band's lead singer, Jim Morrison, who died in 1971; Mr. Jampol does not manage "the Doors' estate.
