Editorial Reviews

SMOREJohns Densmore once called Jim Morrison a "Media God" and he said it better than I could. It's too bad that this video is not available because it's a revealing look at the Media God. I haven't seen this in about a year, but certain images still remain. For example, John Densmore said that at first he wondered if Jim would be able to perform because he was so shy that he mumbled into the microphone. He also said that Jim would never pace himself. If he had a concert to do, he would show up after being up all night. Sometimes he would roam in the concert halls before a concert, talking to all the fans. After the concert, Jim was known to continue to party. No wonder Jim died at 27. He lived each moment like it was his last. This video also shows Francis Ford Coppolla's "Apocalypse Now" section of "The End," commenting that Jim would have loved how Coppolla used the song. I would love to own this video because now even the movie rental store no longer has it. Let's bring this one back!

A look back at the 60's, and a glimpse into the life of rock's bad boy Jim Morrison, this hour long tape is based on the Danny Sugerman/Jerry Hopkins bio, "No One Here Gets Out Alive".
The authors are interviewed extensively, as well as producer Paul Rothchild, and the other Doors: John Densmore, drums, Robbie Krieger, guitar, and Ray Manzarek, keyboards.
This is a rough sketch of Morrison's life, with many gaps (for instance, there is not even a still shot of Pamela Curson, who he called his "cosmic mate"), but is nonetheless interesting. He comes off in the interviews as totally spaced, and somewhat the naive innocent...a child in a gorgeous man's body, which with the added lure of stardom, must have presented some gigantic problems.
By contrast, the other 3 Doors seem down to earth, and serious...and while they were busy making music, Morrison was experimenting with life itself, even to go as far as sometimes messing up the performances. He "packed 50 years of living" in 27 years, and left us a sizable musical and poetic legacy.
The song clips include:
"Back Door Man" and "Crawling Kingsnake".
From the Ed Sullivan Show: "People are Strange" and "Light my Fire".
The clip from Apocalypse Now that uses "The End" in its soundtrack.
And shown in their entirety are "Moonlight Drive" and "Touch Me".
The tape ends with this quote from 1969: "Let's just say I was testing the bounds of reality. I was curious to see what would happen. That's all it was: Just curiosity".

Biographers Danny Sugerman and Jerry Hopkins (No One Here Gets Out Alive) along with the Doors remaining members provide snippets regarding their dark, possessed, mystical lyricist, Jim Morrison. Excerpts from songs feature two in its entirety, "Moonlight Drive" and "Touch Me".

Members reveal how difficult he was to live with: traveling to airports, tours, etc. He was always living on the edge, possessed with a vision of madness and fire and the road to self-destruction. Morrison was an intellectual poet but they didn't know who would come out, the erudite scholar or Kamakazee; or would it be Jekyll or Hyde.

If you don't quite know what this sexually charismatic wildman is like, you will get the picture here. It would have been great to include more of the entire performances....Rizzo
