Book Description

Sept. 1 1995
Here is Jim Morrison in all his complexity-singer, philosopher, poet, delinquent-the brilliant, charismatic, and obsessed seeker who rejected authority in any form, the explorer who probed "the bounds of reality to see what would happen..." Seven years in the writing, this definitive biography is the work of two men whose empathy and experience with Jim Morrison uniquely prepared them to recount this modern tragedy: Jerry Hopkins, whose famous Presley biography, Elvis, was inspired by Morrison's suggestion, and Danny Sugerman, confidant of and aide to the Doors. With an afterword by Michael McClure.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Biography of Jim Morrison July 5 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I have not read any other bios on Jim although I know there are quite a few books on his life however, I believe this is probably the most accurate so far. I read this book a long time ago and I remember being mesmerized from the first to page to the last. Danny Sugerman (who worked for The Doors for a long time) was not an only an associate but a close friend to Jim and he was able to achieve what very few people ever could: Get to know who the real Jim Morrison was. This book not only talks about his life and career but also talks in great length of the human side of Morrison as well. NO ONE HERE GETS OUT ALIVE, is an almost day to day account of Jim's life from his birth to his untimely and very mysterious death in Paris in 1971. It also talks in great detail about his poetry and the things that interest him the most like films, psychology, philosophy, sex and death. This is a great read and is never dull or boring. The only downside to this book is that the print is too small. It would a good idea if they can publish the same book with a larger print. The book also includes several pages of photographs of Jim and the band and with the woman that he called his "muse" Pamela Courson who was Jim's girlfriend from the time that that the band was being formed right up till the end of his life. Again, I would like to say that this is a great book for anyone who has ever been interested in knowing about Jim Morrison, who he was and what he became and what most of all wanted to become. I highly recommended is a very good book about a man an artist who died way too young who lived life so on the edge that found life itself impossible to bare.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Eros of Dionysus Living May 26 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
.
Hopkins and Sugerman's book, "No One Here Gets Out Alive" is a interesting, detailed and fascinating read. I've yet to compare it to Manzarek's and Denzmore's versions of Morrison's life, but I can say this book had me very absorbed with much thinking. I have seen the Val Kilmer movie prior and mentally attempted to piece the parts from the movie and to fill in the many other parts into the gaps. What I found of much more significance and pleasure in this book, was the ideas that Morrision thought, the books he read and the thinkers who influenced him. I found myself reading the quotes that were taken from him over and over again which very much help get the feel of where his mind was at. This book was highly interesting.
As I read this book I couldn't help to compare Morrison with the type of men Socrates was described to have taught in "The Republic of Plato." He just fit this very type of student so well that I found myself comparing him to what Socrates spoke and to that of an interpretive essay on this subject by Alan Bloom, a translator of Plato. And so I will just make a few comments on this book's description of Jim Morrison with the type of man Socrates sought after. This is not such a far fetched analysis, as Morrison himself was a reader of Nietzsche, and in agreement of such, an advent admirer of the chaotic, destructive, artistic and creative personality of the Greek god Dionysus.
Jim Morrison was a man of desires, someone who lived to fulfill them, to walk in them, breath them who would cross many boundaries others would not dare to. This is an intense kind of person. And you can see that in Jim's influence from the Jack Kerouac character of Dean Moriarty (Neil Cassidy), a total Dionysan, chaotic character of eros, a Dr.
