But nontheless her loony rants over the Net hardly help her cause .............The Doors attract insane people like flies to shit and Ashcroft, Butler, Kenneally (who all have their band of acolytes its true) and their ilk will always be with us..........
I have done a few searches, and have found nothing. What are these "loony rants over the Net" you mention? I would like to read anything else she wrote if you can suggest what to look for. The details of the music Jim listened to seem dead on.
So what do you guys think about the book - Wild Child by Linda Ashcroft? i borrowed snakeys copy and read most of it. i do believe she made it up however. i think its been pretty much proven that the dates she said she was with jim, jim was actually in concerts, recording or rehearsing.
I read the 1997 verison of this book which was banned a few weeks after hitting book shelves. I've also read the article that discredits Linda Ashcroft in DCM on-line. It is hard to believe her story is true.
I must say that the author of the DCM story admitted last week that she knew what kind of toothpaste Jim used almost 40 years ago........um, how could anyone remember such details after almost 40 years? I guess some people's claims to fame come in many different shapes and forms and when it comes to Jim Morrison the tales just keep on coming.
Roman Polanski, the director of the Pianist movie relied on a book that the prominent character wrote just a few years after WWII. It makes sense that Polanski sited this work as being accurate because it was written directly after the events happened, therefore details were retained. Polanski admited in a making of the film documentary that no one can remember exact details after a long period of time and be credible. Only when a book is written directly after the events have happened do the details stay fresh in their minds.
After almost 40 years how could some of the so-called people who knew Jim Morrison remember the details so clearly?
It's like the Eric Clapton, "before you accuse me take a look at yourself. " Of course this is just my opinion.
no thats why i never read about that..somebody toldme the book at that in it, but i couldnt find it. i presumed it was later in the book....i think linda needs a slap for coming up with such blatant lies. plus didnt jim once sing a song that went..."dont make her ugly (or wobly i dunno lol), dont make her small..build me a woman 10 ft tall".. linda isnt that attractive and she aint feckin tall!
it's fiction, but nice reading gives another view of the man aka as the lizard king or jimbo there was also the man who was more like the nice man next door i didn't even think of the possibility that he was also a human who went to the toilet and stank if he took a shit.
but since it's fiction i still don't believe his shit smelled like roses
i once heard that jim told his lawer too, he was molested, so....i like the book, although its just scifi. but i heard from someone who know the doors that some things really happened with jim.......but what the fuck do i know;-) love...
