Spanning the entire history of the Doors, this book will long remain the definitive biography of a band that forever changed popular music. But it's not the story you think you know, "
The definitive biography of The Doors, a band that forever changed popular music ... but it's not the story you think you know. The band that started out noted for their wildly unpredictable performances, their jazzy vibe, and the crazed monologues of their front man ended as badly as did the sixties: abruptly, bloodily, cripplingly. It wasn't Morrison who wrote the hits: it was guitarist Robby Krieger. It wasn't Morrison who saw a bright, acid-flared future for the band, but keyboardist Ray Manzarek. Wall captures the true spirit of that tarnished age with a brilliantly penetrating and contemporary investigation into the real story of The Doors.
