This is a great history and detailed chronolgy of Morrison's life. However, it comes up short on explaining his thoughts and what actually
fueled his destructive behaviour. For the "whens" and "wheres" it is
excellent, but it is lacking on the "whys." We learn, as the title implies, much about his life and death. However, the legend remains as
mysterious as ever, except for the incomplete discussions of his antics and writings that propelled him to his legendary status. The reading is outstanding, but the treatment left me wanting to know
more, alot more. A thorough knowledge of The Doors music is essential for maximum enjoyment of the book.
