Jim Morrison is pretty much synonymous with “Sex, Drugs and Rockn’Roll”. Even beyond the grave, The Doors front-man has a knack for stirring up trouble and grabbing the public’s attention.
This time the controversy surrounds The Doors’ surviving members, Morrison’s estate, and the rights to the band’s classic hits. It’s an on-going battle that has played out in court and been chronicled by the band’s drummer, John Densmore, in his new book, The Doors: Unhinged.
In any other circumstance this would be some dry narrative, focusing on the legalese of intellectual property rights, but this is The Doors, so there’s bound to be something juicy. Rock stars fighting over money? Yep, that means drama!
For die-hard fans and lovers of Rock & Roll history, Densmore will be appearing at Sunrise Records, 336 Yonge Street, Toronto, on Sept. 28th, between 2 and 4pm to sign copies of his tell-all. Early arrival is encouraged.
