{Read Ebook} à No One Here Gets Out Alive  Here is Jim Morrison in all his complexity singer, philosopher, poet, delinquent the brilliant, charismatic, and obsessed seeker who rejected authority in any form, the explorer who probed the bounds of reality to see what would happen Seven years in the writing, this definitive biography is the work of two men whose empathy and experience with Jim Morrison uniquely prepared them to recount this modern tragedy Jerry Hopkins, whose famous Presley biography, Elvis, was inspired by Morrison s suggestion, and Danny Sugerman, confidant of and aide to the Doors With an afterword by Michael McClure This book to me was an obsessive take from the opinion of Danny Sugerman on Jim Morrison I found some of the words to be quite hypocritical and at times a little demeaning The Doors popularity was gained from their uniqueness as a band, that includes the voice of Jim Morrison To say the man couldn t sing was an absolute lie He stood out not only for his reckless ways, but also for his ability to sing in a way no other person could. In the age of flower power, the Summer of Love and an era in which a generation sought peace not war, The Doors came out of the darker corners of man s desire.Harbingers of evil No This is about the conduits of humanity in all its beauty and horror The Doors embodied yin and yang I found an island in your arms Country in your eyes Arms that chain Eyes that lie In No One Here Gets Out Alive, Danny Sugarman has put together the comprehensive legend of Jim Morrison s life, as well as the birth In the age of flower power, the Summer of Love and an era in which a generation sought peace not war, The Doors came out of the darker corners of man s desire.Harbingers of evil No This is about the conduits of humanity in all its beauty and horror The Doors embodied yin and yang I found an island in your arms Country in your eyes Arms that chain Eyes that lie In No One Here Gets Out Alive, Danny Sugarman has put together the comprehensive legend of Jim Morrison s life, as well as the birth and death of the band that made Morrison godlike in the eyes of millions While keyboardist Ray Manzarek, guitarist Robby Krieger and drummer John Dens were adept musicians, they were a mere back up band for the wildly enigmatic, charismatic Morrison Sugarman treats them with deference, but they are relegated to the background here too The author knows what his readers have come for and he gives it to them The phoenix rises and bursts into flame with the blazing sun of the southern Californian, mercurial late 60s music scene as the backdrop The sun drenched Whisky a Go Go on the Sunset Strip in Los Angeles, site of The Doors early triumphs No One Here Gets Out Alive is sex, drugs and rock n roll and as a teenager reading this, I LOVED it So why only 3 stars The problem is it s rather sycophantic and not well written How could you expect anythingDanny Sugarman was perhaps the most diehard Doors fan of all time At the age of 12 he started working for the band answering fan mail Before he was even out of high school he was managing them After they dissolved, Sugarman managed Ray Manzarek s solo work How could this book not be partisan After all, there s a reason armies are made up of 18 year olds.All the negatives aside, this was the Bible to the kid version of me, who was a hardcore Morrison fanatic he and I share the same birthday, which I thought at the time meant I could pretty much see into his soulahhh teenagers , but No One Here Gets Out Alive is not a biography about Jesus It s just about a fucked up kid who landed in a band of fairly accomplished musicians who were willing to put his bad poetry to music, creating songs that found a disenfranchised audience at just the right time Interesting story about an interesting individual Really, that s it, even if it means so very muchto many.If you re a Doors fan, this is essential reading You ve discovered the right place to geek out If you re a fan of late 60s music, especially the L.A scene, you ll find plenty to sink your teeth into If you re everyone else Then this is not the droid the book you re looking for Frankly, this could be given any rating, Five to one One in five No one here gets out alive. I am a long time Doors fan I own all their music and still include it in my music rotation nearly 40 years after my first exposure to them Morrison was a very bright man cursed with uncommonly good looks and a ferocious thirst for large quantities of whiskey The latter led him to an early grave This book colorfully accounts for his genius and outrageous appetites that led to his early death at age 27 The author dares suggest what Doors fans find heretical Morrison wasn t a very good sing I am a long time Doors fan I own all their music and still include it in my music rotation nearly 40 years after my first exposure to them Morrison was a very bright man cursed with uncommonly good looks and a ferocious thirst for large quantities of whiskey The latter led him to an early grave This book colorfully accounts for his genius and outrageous appetites that led to his early death at age 27 The author dares suggest what Doors fans find heretical Morrison wasn t a very good singer he was an awesome shouter and a reasonably good poet His controversial on stage antics and his physical beauty were what gave him such a huge public following Had he survived his youth, he probably would have become a first rate poet writer A few years ago, my wife and I visited his grave at Pere la Chaise cemetery in Paris To say that many of his fans are morons that get grandiose and delusional about him is an understatement However I still find that The Doors music stands the test of time and think Morrison was a talented and interesting guy This book, while good, could have been a lot better The authors, one of whom knew Morrison personally, interviewed multiple people that were close to him and The Doors, but yet its hard get a true feel for what sort of person Morrison was underneath the front that he put To say that many of his fans are morons that get grandiose and delusional about him is an understatement However I still find that The Doors music stands the test of time and think Morrison was a talented and interesting guy This book, while good, could have been a lot better The authors, one of whom knew Morrison personally, interviewed multiple people that were close to him and The Doors, but yet its hard get a true feel for what sort of person Morrison was underneath the front that he put up Maybe this can t fully be blamed on the authors because I believe Morrison put up a wall image at a very young age and rarely if ever ventured on the other side of it One thing I liked about Morrisson is he seemed to haveof an interest in literature and poetry that music, and his long term aspirations were in that direction.Overall this book is interesting entertaining A good portion of it is recounting of Morrisons self destructive drunken antics The faults are it didn t get on the other side of the mask that Morrison wore, the authors were obviously overly enthusiastic fans I also find this books habit of quoting enacting conversations greatly annoying I realize they interviewed people that were involved in them but how sure can we be of the accuracy of word for word quotations of words that were exchanged 30 years before this book was published
