Publisher's Summary

In Paris' Pre-Lachaise cemetery, Jim Morrison's graffiti-scrawled tombstone is a place of pilgrimage for local devotees, adolescent hedonists, and wayward backpackers alike. Found dead in his bathtub aged only 27, having achieved worldwide stardom as lead singer of The Doors, Morrison was quickly immortalized among the rock and roll deities such as Hendrix and Joplin. In death, however, this debauched "rock poet" remained more stubbornly enigmatic than ever.
Who was the real Jim Morrison? Nihilist, egoist, shaman: He was a master of self-creation. A mosaic mythology of new-age hippy rhetoric, French poetry and Nietszchean symbolism obscured a man trapped by the mythology that he had so carefully constructed around himself.
In this colorful and intimate biography, Dylan Jones strips bare the skin-tight leather suit of Jim Morrison's Lizard King persona and offers a frank and honest appraisal of a much beloved and often-romanticized countercultural icon. Mr. Mojo is littered with little-known anecdotes from fellow stars, spurned lovers, and industry moguls. It is a refreshingly honest portrait of a self-indulgent artist with a penchant for pageantry and public self-destruction.

Book was good but the silly accents

The story was not new and the end is the same as life but the book was destroyed by the narrators child like stereotypical accents. Why it was done this way I don't know just silly and it spoiled the book.. I almost gave up at the start due to the accents and I now feel I should have refunded this. Feel sorry for the author..

Beautifully crafted story. Not sure about the voice imitations but all the same very enjoyable and a luxury to have more Doors material in this day and age.

Good voice

Well written, compiled a lot of other biographies into one and lands somewhere in the middle with the truth. Great to listen to, narrator sounds like Patrick Stewart, I loved it
