Jim Morrison : Life, Death, Legend, Paperback
4 out of 5 (1 rating)


Jim Morrison's electrifying live performances, and appetite for sexual and psychedelic experience enflamed the spirit of a generation.

In Jim Morrison, critically acclaimed journalist Stephen Davis brings together insights gleaned from dozens of original interviews, long-lost recordings, and Morrison's own unpublished journals to create a vivid portrait of a misunderstood genius.

Each page brims with new details on every phase of Morrison's life, from his troubled youth in a strict military household, to his coming of age in the avant-garde scene of 1960s LA, his epic alcohol and drug binges, and sexual affairs.

In a gripping final chapter, Davis synthesizes new evidence recently uncovered in Paris to resolve at last many of the mysteries surrounding Morrison's death, and reconstructs the final days and hours of America's greatest rock star.

Compelling and harrowing, intimate and revelatory, Jim Morrison is the definitive biography of the rock god who defined the 1960s.

Review by

The life and legend of visionary, self-destructive, suggestive mad poet who was the singer of one of the greatest band of the late '60s and whose name was James Douglas Morrison. Great biography with some small repetitions....
