About the Author

James Riordan is the author of The Platinum Rainbow. His interviews with and stories about major rock stars have appeared in Rolling Stone and other national magazines, and he was a consultant on Oliver Stone's film The Doors. He lives near Chicago. Jerry Prochnicky researched the Jim Morrison story for more than twenty years. He lives in Southern California.


Riordan ( The Platinum Rainbow ) and freelancer Prochnicky here present credible new evidence about the death of Doors lead singer Jim Morrison: according to sources close to his late girlfriend, Pamela Courson, Morrison's 1971 death at age 27 in Paris was caused by heroin overdose, not heart failure as publicized. For the most part, however, the book covers familiar territory and the fan-club-style overstatement, redundancy and lyrics quoted for dramatic effect become tedious. The authors discuss recording sessions, concerts, groupies, etc., and the 1970 court case that convicted Morrison of indecent exposure and profanity at a Miami concert. The Lizard King's charisma, alcohol and drug abuse and artistic disillusionment are sympathetically portrayed. Those nostalgic about Morrison and the Doors might wish to scour this unpolished tome for a few more tidbits of trivia. Photos not seen by PW . (June)
