Info:
One of my favorite bands of all time, Jim Morrison, Ray Manzarek, John Densmore, and Robby Krieger formed The Doors. However due to Jim Morrison being fucking crazy and writing 99% of the material most people just know him. They had a great career surrounded by a lot of conversely mostly due to Jim. In the end Morrison died in Paris, or so one story goes. Like Elvis that’s also up in the air as to weather or not Jim Morrison is really dead. That’s an entire story all on it’s own so I’m not even going to attempt to branch out to it, look it up if you’re interested. During the time they were a band with Morrison they only put out top notch albums, all of them are great. However after the leader died the band kept trying to go and put out two more albums, both of which are fucking awful.

REVIEW: No One Here Gets Out Alive

Leave a comment

getsoutaliveThe Doors are one of my favorite bands of all time, Jim Morrison is a fucking interesting guy if nothing else, ‘No One Here Gets Out Alive’ is a book I’ve read more times than any other book. Jerry Hopkins and Danny Sugerman do an impeccable job of bringing you into Jim Morrison’s world. A biography that takes you from being Jim Morrison the child going on vacation with his family to the conspiracy theories surrounding The Door’s front man’s mysterious death. Most of this book seems to be direct account of Jim Morrison almost as if he were being interviewed for the entire thing. 384 pages, I cannot recommend this enough if you’re a fan of one of the greatest rock bands of all time.
