Synopsis: The Doors. Arguably the most important rock-and-roll band of the sixties, unquestionably a catalyst for American music as we know it. Their music was the product of late-sixties southern California, with its idyllic facades. The Doors looked beyond these facades and wrote music about what they found, thus becoming the ultimate symbol for rebellion and alienation. Ray Manzarek. The driving force, leader, and, along with Jim Morrison, cofounder of The Doors in the summer of 1965. Together with Robby Krieger and John Densmore, they created a legend. Their original mix of jazz, classical, California surf, Flamenco guitar, and Chicago blues made an irreversible impact on the music of the day. When Light My Fire hit number one on the charts, the legend began. Their worldwide popularity was and still is remarkable. Today, The Doors sell nearly two million albums a year. Jim Morrison. A magnetic presence and rock icon in life, still a legend more than twenty-five years after his death. Manzarek and Morrison were both UCLA Film School graduates, best friends, and rarely apart until Morrison moved to Paris shortly before his death in 1971. What Ray Manzarek knows about Jim Morrison and The Doors, no one else does. His story gives illumination to the dark myths and lays to rest the rumors that have abounded about Jim Morrison and the band. Bright Midnight truly gives us an insight into the times, the enigmatic lead singer, and the magic circle that was The Doors.

From the Back Cover: No other band has ever sounded quite like the Doors. No other set of musicians has managed to produce quite so enthralling a combination of music and lyrics -- and no other front man has ever transfixed an audience quite the way Jim Morrison did. Ray Manzarek, the band's cofounder and keyboard player, was there from the very start -- and until the sad dissolution -- of the Doors, and in this heartfelt and colorfully detailed memoir, he brings us an insider's view of their brief, brilliant history, from Manzarek and Morrison's friendship at UCLA to the legendary Sunset Strip performances, from their string of groundbreaking hit albums to Morrison's tragic demise in 1971. No one can tell the story of the Doors like Ray Manzarek can. And now, in a world where, amazingly, the Doors still sound as fresh and fascinating as the day they made their debut, he finally tells it -- from the beginning to the end.
