"The best book yet about The Doors." --Booklist

The inside story of the Doors, by cofounder and keyboard player Ray Manzarek. Includes 16 pages of photos.


"A refreshingly candid read...a Doors bio worth opening." --Entertainment Weekly
No other band has ever sounded quite like the Doors, and no other frontman has ever transfixed an audience quite the way Jim Morrison did. Ray Manzarek, the band's co-founder and keyboard player, was there from the very start--and until the sad dissolution--of the Doors. In this heartfelt and colorfully detailed memoir, complete with 16 pages of photographs, he brings us an insider's view of the brief, brilliant history...from the beginning to the end.
"An engaging read." --Washington Post Book World

From the Back Cover:

No other band has ever sounded quite like the Doors. No other set of musicians has managed to produce quite so enthralling a combination of music and lyrics -- and no other front man has ever transfixed an audience quite the way Jim Morrison did. Ray Manzarek, the band's cofounder and keyboard player, was there from the very start -- and until the sad dissolution -- of the Doors, and in this heartfelt and colorfully detailed memoir, he brings us an insider's view of their brief, brilliant history, from Manzarek and Morrison's friendship at UCLA to the legendary Sunset Strip performances, from their string of groundbreaking hit albums to Morrison's tragic demise in 1971. No one can tell the story of the Doors like Ray Manzarek can. And now, in a world where, amazingly, the Doors still sound as fresh and fascinating as the day they made their debut, he finally tells it -- from the beginning to the end.

About the Author:

Ray Manzarek was a cofounder and member of The Doors. After Morrison's death in 1971, he went on to produce the seminal punk rock band X, and to record some solo projects, including the critically acclaimed Golden Scarab with Tony Williams and Larry Carlton. He has directed three platinum-selling videos on The Doors as well. When not in the studio, he tours live with Obie award-winning beat poet Michael McClure.
