Overview

An army brat and college dropout, Jim Morrison saw his place in this world as a poet. Even clad in his signature black leather pants, Morrison was never a typical rock star; he counted Baudelaire, Nietzsche, and Blake among his influences and resolved to follow in their paths as an uncompromising artist, finding inspiration in everything, testing reality, and expanding his consciousness by any means necessary. In the tradition of such artists as Coleridge, Rimbaud, Poe, and Kerouac, Morrison embraced life, determined to feel every bit of its joy and pain, tragedy and hope.

From his birth in 1943 in Florida, to the rise to fame in LA and his death in Paris - and all of the tumultuous years in between - No One Here Gets Out Alive is the definitive biography of this compelling, tormented, and brilliant man. Written by noted rock biographer Jerry Hopkins, who published the first-ever biography of Elvis Presley in 1971, and Doors intimate and rock journalist Daniel Sugerman, No One Here Gets Out Alive provides a rare, insightful glimpse into the life and mind of one the true icons of contemporary music and culture.
