Compelling and harrowing, intimate and revelatory, Jim Morrison is the definitive biography of the rock idol in snakeskin and leather who defined the 1960s.

This book is a riveting look at the life of complex man, a man very much a product of (and contributor to) his time. It captures the feel and history of LA in the 60's and early 70's.
Morrison, debauched, naive, sympathetic, brilliant, cruel, a train wreck in waiting. He was many things....a phony he was not.
Don't let the length of this title put you off, this is a compelling story. Great writing and narration make this one of my all time favorite listens.

I grew up with The Doors and owned all their albums. I adored them but I had NO IDEA what was happening behind the scenes. This book is a real eye-opener. At times the endless recounting of drug/alcohol crazed events and never ending discontent among the band members is tedious. However, I was taken completely by surprise by a very sad and poignant ending that stayed with me for days and days.
