 Best bio on Jim I've ever read - better than 'No one here..'

| | See all themusic's reviews (9)

This is the best bio i've ever read about jim. it tells the story about his turbulent childhood (his father was in the navy, and jim was a rebellious kid, so you can imagine the Morrison household...), his aging and going to school, going to college, and then meeting the other Doors, and the famed gigs.

A very good read for any rock n roll fan as Davis leaves nothing out: fights, booze and drugs and in band fighting, including with record company personnel, his infamous relationship with Pamela (the b*tch) Courson and his last weeks in Paris and his hasty burial, and the aftermath. Also includes how Davis came to approach how this bio was to be written.

A classic book. Every rock n roll fan should have this.

 Best morrison bio ive read to date

For anyone who is intrested in the life of jim morrison and the music of the doors and wants to read about it then you need look no further than this account by Stephen Davis.
He recounts the turbulent life of a true but tortured genuis brilliantly and that of the other band members and people who were around the whole scene.
From his childhood years through to his days as a student at UCLA and the chance meeting with ray manzerick on venice beach that resulted in them forming the doors,the story of morrison is a brilliant but sometimes harrowing read and his final months in paris befour his death are a particularly good insight into one of the greatest rock stars of the 20th century. Hard to but down onve you start to read this. 5/5
