Love Becomes a Funeral Pyre : A Biography of the Doors Paperback


Think you know the story of Jim Morrison and The Doors?

This revelatory and explosive biography from critically acclaimed rock journalist Mick Wall will make you think again. In 1971, Jim Morrison was found dead in a club toilet in Paris.

He was 27 years old. Since then, The Doors have been the subject of a mystery fuelled by sensationalised rumours and empty conjecture. In this definitive account of Jim Morrison and The Doors, critically acclaimed rock writer Mick Wall unravels the myths surrounding the iconic band and its frontman, and captures the unique and unforgettable spirit of the sixties.

A brilliantly penetrating and long-overdue biography, Love Becomes a Funeral Pyre questions the idolisation of Jim Morrison and considers the story of The Doors in all of its uncomfortable truth.
