Jim Morrison was the original Dark Star, a singer who opened up his psyche and invited the initiated to come and peer inside. The first rock star to blatantly explore--and expose--himself in public, Morrison pushed his persona as far as it would go. Now Jones delves into the reality behind the myth. 128 photographs, 24 in full color.

From Library Journal:

Here is yet another book about Jim Morrison. What has Jones done that Morrison's other biographers haven't? First, he includes tons of photographs , with many shots in color and many available for the first time, e.g., family portraits. There are also plenty of shots of the Lizard King smiling, which we don't see too often. Second, Jones devotes considerable space to Morrison's grave site in Paris's Pere-Lachaise cemetery, usually so mobbed that Morrison seems to have as many followers as Jesus Christ. The description of this adolescent and subculture mecca is enough to make one wonder about Morrison's continued power. In fact, Jones's comments are often harshly critical of the man and his work. This criticism will be almost a relief to the many seasoned fans who have begun to suspect that Morrison was not as great as they had thought. Yet at times even Jones becomes so adulatory that his book loses its balance as fair criticism of a major late-20th-century pop culture figure, and falls to nothing more than what you would expect--idol worship. Still, Jones has his finer moments. Previewed in Prepub Alert, LJ 12/90.
