Présentation de l'éditeur

"It's All About the Music!"

Welcome to another in the Legends of Rock & Roll series.

This is, like the others, a mini-biography of one the greatest of American bands, The Doors.

The Doors were one of most intense and radical rock groups of the Sixties and their legacy can still be felt today, 40 years after the death of Jim Morrison.

Their career was short, only about 6 years, but they fit a lifetime of music into those 6 years.

This was the Sixties, the generation that gave us LSD, hippies, protests of the Vietnam War, flower children, and free love. Jim Morrison and the Doors wrote and sang about all of that. They were as interesting to watch on stage as they were to listen to.

This book is about the group, but even more importantly, it's about the music. This series is my way of honoring the people that have brought so much joy to our lives over the years.

It is an unauthorized fan tribute.

Inside you'll find:

Introduction - Remarks about The Doors in general and a kick-off for the book.
In the Beginning - A brief biography of each of the four members of the Doors and how they came together.
Birth of the Doors - The beginning of the band. Do you know how they got their name?
The London Fog - Their first job prior to moving up to the big time and getting a record contract.
The First Album: "The Doors" - This album contains their signature song "Light My Fire", their first number one.
The Ed Sullivan Show - In the late Sixties, no one stood up to Ed Sullivan. Jim Morrison did.
"Strange Days" - The Doors release a second album with a "strange" cover.
New Haven, Connecticut - Did you know Jim Morrison was the first performer to be arrested during a concert? Find out why.
"Waiting for the Sun" - The Doors third album is their only album to reach number one.
Jim Morrison Begins to Self-Destruct - The drinking and the drugs were finally catching with with Jim.
Meltdown in Miami - Jim Morrison is arrested again. Did he really do what they said he did?
"Morrison Hotel" - Jim's life continued to spin out of control. He is arrested again and their fifth album is released.
"L.A. Woman" - The last album Jim Morrison actively participated in also contains some of the group's best work.
Paris - What really happened the night Jim Morrison died?
The 27 Club - Do you know how many performers and writers have died during their 27th year?
After Jim Morrison - The band tries to move on without Jim, but finds they can't really do it.
"An American Prayer" - the last Doors album is recorded using old recordings of Jim reciting his poetry,
Taking It Up to the Present - Various events that have happened between the late Seventies and today.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Doors - For those who were too young to remember 1 février 2013
Par Philip Turner - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I was only a teenager in the 60s and not really into the Doors, but since then I have seen the error of my ways and this ebook is a great gap filler for my shameful lack of knowledge about Jim Morrison and the Doors. Contains background on each Doors member, the group and their musical hits and influences

James Hoag does it again with his new book The Doors. No one from my generation can forget their music; we grew up on it. James Hoag does a fine job from his Beatles books and now this one. Kudos James; this one is a home run just like the others.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 If You Remember The Sixties, Were You Really There? 13 février 2013

I read this book having no preconceptions about Hoag (the author). the Doors, or Jim Morrison. I knew the name of the group back then, and I recognized a number of their songs, but I couldn't have listed a group for the songs, nor songs for the group. nor even associated the songs with each other.

Not have I seen Oliver Stone's movie, but I've seen a lot of Doors and Morrison tishirs.

I think I'm probably the target audience for Hoag. Those who are avid fans would probably correct Hoag's errors (whether they are errors or not) and fill in a lot of minutae that Hoag left out. I'm perfectly happy with the level of detail, am pleased when Hoag expresses an opinion (and he does label his opinions as such.) His commentary moves right along, pleasantly enough, giving me something to chew on, but not choke on.

If you weren't around in the late '60s, you may be familiar with Muzak of Doors tunes. In that case, I would recommend that you read this book while listening to the tracks on Youtube; you'll probably enjoy the book more. And I would recommend this book to those who came along too late or were too busy doing other things during Morrison's heyday. It's no crime to be culturally ignorant; the only shame is remaining that way when this book exists to bring you up to speed so pleasantly.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Long Live The Doors - Great Book ! 10 février 2013
Par Bman11 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
A great recap of the epic rock group The DOORS. The author spills the beans on the behind the scenes of Jim Morrison, Ray Manzarek, John Densmore and Robby Krieger. I always loved this rock group and the book helped to complete the story for me.

Because the author worked in the music industry there is a lot of great information you couldn't find easily elsewhere. From the heated shows to recording in the studio, to the highlights of a rock star and the melt down from drugs... it's all here in this book.

An insider's look from the birth of the first album to the peak of fame for this legendary rock band. Viva Jim Morrison!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Doors - rock n roll 4 février 2013
Par Annie Rogers - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
This is a very easy to read, informative book written by someone who obviously has a passion for rock & roll history, and is able to bring the bands and people alive for those of us who can't quite remember them all, but are interested to know a bit about them. I must admit I didn't know much about The Doors and Jim Morrison before I read this book, but I now feel more educated, and intend to read some of the other books in this series.
