JIM MORRISON Life, Death, Legend

by | Read by Paul Michael

Biography & Memoir • 18 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2004

Jim Morrison became a rock star in the heady, iconoclastic '60s as lead singer for The Doors. With fame and wealth came self-indulgence with perversions, alcohol, and illegal substances. He died under mysterious circumstances before the age of 30. Stephen Davis's lengthy biography seeks to elevate him into iconographic significance and to explain him to us unwashed. This audio offers him the opportunity to illustrate his points with his subject's music. Unfortunately, he doesn't take the opportunity. Instead, sounding suitably like an intelligent, young all-American, Paul Michael admirably presides over a fluidly written, albeit pretentious and overlong, recitation of sensational events and silly pop psychology.
