Show synopsis Jim Morrison epitomized the late 1960s - the sex, drugs and rock n roll. He was the greatest American rock star and one of the most publicised celebrities of his era, but more than three decades later, his life, works and music have yet to yield all their secrets and mysteries. As lead singer of The Doors, Jim Morrison was known for his love affair with acid, his suicide mission and his attempts to release his generation from what he saw as a prison-like conformity to social and sexual norms. He called himself and his band 'erotic politicians,' and urged his huge audience, at the height of the 1960s, to break on through the doors of perception. Jim Morrison is packed with startling new revelations about every phase of his life and career, from his troubled youth in a strict military household to his blossoming as a rock icon among the avant-garde LA scene to his voracious drug abuse and sexual experiments. Using new evidence, Davis also investigates one of the greatest mysteries in rock history - the circumstances surrounding Morrison's mysterious and unsolved death in Paris in 1971. Compelling and unforgettable, Stephen Davis's explosive new biography, Jim Morrison, is destined to become a classic.
