Yes, Jim Morrison died in Paris in 1971âbut not in a bathtub. The other Doors were saddened and shocked but had already fired him anyway. It wasnât Jim who wrote the hits; it was guitarist Robby Krieger. It wasnât Jim who saw a bright, acid-flared future for the band but keyboardist Ray Manzarek.
And so, the band that started out as the âAmerican Rolling Stones,â 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 Love Becomes 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.
