Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

When people discover I was a friend of Jim Morrison, sooner or later they inevitably ask, "What was he really like?" A simple, straightforward reply has become more difficult over the years as sensational and conflicting fictions have obscured the truth about Jim. This book confronts and sweeps away the myths to illuminate an extraordinary man and gifted creative artist. In these pages Jim Morrison is candidly revealed by the people who knew him, who were his pals, colleagues, mentors and lovers. You'll find funny stories, secrets revealed and facts more startling than any of the distortions spread during and after Jim's life. The result is a more detailed rendering, a more humane and accurate portrait.           Frank Lisciandro

Quotes from the book: 
  "You could take away anything you wanted from Jim Morrison, but don't mess with his freedom." [Ron Alan]

  "...he didn't own a car, and he didn't own a house and the only belongings that he had were the things that he wore..." [Leon Barnard]

"I admired the ability that he had to cleave to the subject and stick with it. Jim's memory was absolutely acute..." [Michael McClure]

"You never quite knew what he was going to do, which was half of the excitement of a Doors concert."  [Rich Linnell]

More than 55 original photos
      Conversations with 14 friends

      380 pages of honest testimony

About the Author

Frank Lisciandro is a documentary filmmaker and photographer. He attended the UCLA Film School with Jim Morrison and Doors’ keyboardist Ray Manzarek, and later collaborated with Morrison on his two films—Feast of Friends and HWY. A close friend and confidante of Jim, he was the co-producer of the Grammy-nominated album, An American Prayer, which featured Morrison’s spoken word poetry with musical backing by the three surviving Doors. In 1982, he released his first photo book, An Hour for Magic, which featured more than 100 photos and personal anecdotes about his work, travels and friendship with Morrison. In the late Eighties, on behalf of the Morrison Estate, Lisciandro went through the vaults containing Morrison’s personal writings and co-edited two volumes of previously unreleased Morrison poetry for Villard Books: Wilderness (1989) and The American Night (1990). Lisciandro has made more than 25 documentary films and shown his photographs in the USA, Canada, England, France and Italy.
