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.
