Shelves: so-bad-that-i-couldn-t-finish-it One star is being very generous. Unorganized jargon about The Doors and Oliver Stone. Made it through 40 pages before I gave in.
Save yourself some time and stay clear. Marcus book is a fans book, he says that it started at the Avalon Ballroom with his wife and seeing The Doors and on their way out, took a handbill of the show and after a lifetime they still have them. Marcus, best known for music criticism and pop culture, is a Doors fan, but an objective one, he is well versed in all aspects of music and the artists but also the language of music and focuses his lens on The Doors. Like their music much of this is grasping for something just out of reach, something elusive.
I especially liked the piece on Wallace Berman and Pop-art. For those of us born after the death of Morrison, or Elvis, it is the flaws that allow us to see beyond the mystique, mystique is boring. I grew up listening to The Doors, sometimes laughing at them, but believing in them, and I still do, so does Marcus most of the time.
The writing here was really good, and when he gets down to the music he really nails it, all the little nuances that matter. He tells you that The Doors offered the world a new kind of dread, that they were harbingers of something that seemed to take shape in the Manson murders. Marcus refers to the Oliver Stone movie quite a lot, he likes it, which is pretty funny.
I like it too, but not as much as Clambake..
