Sinopsis

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.Yes, Jim Morrison died in Paris in 1971—but not in a bathtub. The other Doors were saddened and shocked but had already fired him anyway. It wasn't Jim who wrote the hits; it was guitarist Robby Krieger. It wasn't Jim who saw a bright, acid-flared future for the band but keyboardist Ray Manzarek.And so, the band that started out as the "American Rolling Stones," 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.Along with evoking the cultural milieu of Los Angeles in the sixties, in LoveBecomes a Funeral Pyre bestselling writer Mick Wall captures the true spirit of that tarnished age with a brilliantly penetrating and contemporary investigation into the real story of the Doors.
