No One Here Gets Out Alive by Danny SugermanHere 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 Morrisons suggestion, and Danny Sugerman, confidant of and aide to the Doors. With an afterword by Michael McClure.
