Summary: Angels Dance and Angels Die is the true story of the turbulent and ultimately ill fated romance of legendary Doors frontman Jim Morrison and Pamela Courson Morrison, the beautiful and volatile redhead Morrison referred to as his "cosmic mate". Although there have been other books on Jim Morrison and The Doors, none has delved so deeply into Morrison's personal life, in which his relationship with Pamela was one of the few constants. Angels Dance and Angels Die is a feast for fans, examining the lives of Courson and Morrison, from their surprisingly parallel early lives to their fateful meeting in 1966, chronicling their roller coaster life together until Morrison's death in 1971, and describing Courson's struggle to go on without Morrison (including her fight to claim his estate) - until her mysterious death from a heroin overdose in 1974. Patricia Butler interviewed family, friends, and business associates of both Pamela and Jim to tell the true story of their relationship. Neither condemning nor praising, the author gives a balanced portrait of the stormy life and times of these two lovers. Along the way, she shatters many myths about Jim Morrison's life, including providing new information about the circumstances surrounding his death in Paris. She has also uncovered new information about Morrison's formative years, illuminating the many conflicting inner drives that led him to become one of the enduring legends of rock.
