Think you know the story of Jim Morrison and The Doors? This revelatory and
explosive biography from critically acclaimed rock journalist Mick Wall will make
you think again. Think you know how Jim Morrison died? Think you know who
wrote all their hits? Think you know why Morrison fled to Paris, never to return?
Well now you will with the definitive biography, Love Becomes a Funeral Pyre, of
the legendary rock band and their iconic frontman Jim Morrison, written by Mick
Wall, one of our most revered music writers and one of the last journalists to
interview Ray Manzarek. The Doors have sold over 100 million albums. Inducted
in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1993, they received a lifetime achievement
at the 2007 Grammy Awards, and were the first American band to accumulate
eight consecutive gold LPs. Yet the story of The Doors ended as badly as did the
1960s: a startling decade the music and story of The Doors both defined and
helped vilify. Along with evoking the cultural milieu of Los Angeles, in Love
Becomes A Funeral Pyre Mick Wall captures the true spirit of that tarnished age
with a brilliantly penetrating and contemporary investigation into the real story
of The Doors.
