The current revival of interest in Jim Morrison and the Doors guarantees an audience for this audiobook. Densmore's reverence for Morrison as poet and creative force is clearly communicated in both the narrative and the reading of song lyrics. Densmore recounts Morrison's addiction to alcohol and search for oblivion, the havoc in the Doors's performances and lives. Of equal interest is the description of the music business and the pressures resulting from the Doors' success. However, Densmore's rambling style of writing and his halting reading make for tedious listening as do the bells, drums and off-key singing. This book is a perfect candidate for abridgment.
