Summary note
"The Doors, by any measure one of the most unique, influential, and controversial rock bands of all time, broke up not long after lead singer Jim Morrison's death in 1971. But they do go on forever." "The Doors by The Doors, like no other book about the band, explains the phenomenon." "Written with Ben Fong-Torres of Rolling Stone, who conducted the last interview Morrison ever gave, the book features first-person accounts from guitarist Robby Krieger (who composed the band's greatest hit, "Light My Fire"), keyboardist Ray Manzarek, and drummer John Densmore. They reveal what really went on behind the scenes, in the recording studios, and on the road. And they offer firsthand accounts of that fateful day on Venice Beach when Morrison and Manzarek agreed to form a rock band, of their initial struggles, of the blinding flash of sudden success, and of the inevitable problems that would accompany fame and fortune." "And, for the first time ever, members on Jim Morrison's family offer their recollections and insights. And more than 300 photographs from the band's private vault, and you have an unprecedented, all-access, backstage look at the band that defied all rules and eschewed all conventions - a band of revolutionaries."--BOOK JACKET.
