Set the Night on Fire: Living, Dying, and Playing Guitar With the Doors

At long last Robby Krieger has written his first book that Doors’ fans will fall in love with. He is of the last three surviving band members after the death of Jim Morrison kept his silence from book form. Set the Night on Fire: Living, Dying, and Playing Guitar With the Doors with a little help from Jeff Alulis brings to the forefront an added view of perhaps the greatest band from the 60s. The legend of Jim Morrison has grown in 50 years and still keeps growing. I think we can put to rest that Jim Morrison is not alive. All the literature and music out there sustain Jim and the rest of the group alive for many generations to follow.

What If everything we think we know about Jim Morrison is wrong?

What If everything we think we know about Jim Morrison is wrong?

That question has haunted Jeff Finn since 1985 when he first researched the infamous vocalist and lyricist of the legendary 1960s rock band, The Doors.

Indie film production company Z-Machine has released a new extended preview of this hard-boiled but empathic documystery. What If everything we think we know about Jim Morrison is wrong?

L.A. Woman (50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition)

L.A. Woman (50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition)

I am really pumped for the 50th Anniversary of the L.A. Woman special collection. I own The Doors LA Woman: The Workshop Sessions (2012). This is a welcome extension to that release. 2021 is a big year for The Doors with a lot of new material coming out from Robby Kreiger’s first book and the complete writings of Jim Morrison. Unfortunately, it is also the anniversary of Jim Morrison’s death. There is a lot to celebrate. 1971 marked a turbulent time for Jim Morrison personally with his trouble with the law. Contractually the band owed Elektra Records one more record and boy did it payback in spades. For the next 50 years, “Love Her Madly,” “Riders On The Storm,” and “L.A. Woman” would grace the airwaves. Nobody knew at the time that this was their swan song. Maybe Jim Morrison had an inkling it was his last record but did not share that information with anybody including the band.
