The Doors—The Illustrated History. Danny is someone in the Doors story that we at Scorpywag don’t think very highly of. He has made a pretty good living out of Jim Morrison’s death and continues to this day to fuel the many myths he helped create with his contribution to NOGOHA. Having said that, no single person worked harder to keep the Doors name alive in the 80’s than he did. ( for that we respect him) So why don’t we like him? Read his excellent book “Wonderland Avenue” for an answer to that. (It too would have been included in this section but is more Danny’s bio than a true Doors book.-Scorpywag rating 9+) This amazing compilation of cuttings, reviews, photographs and articles was collected by a young Danny during the height of The Doors success whilst working as Jim's dogsbody. Beginning with the bands first forays onto the LA gig circuit the fledgling Doors took the rock press by storm with their doom laden sound and extremely smart lyrical imagery. From the Whisky to Miami via the Singer Bowl and New Haven we travel along on the dark journey to oblivion that was the Doors turbulent and sadly short career as seen through the eyes of the press and a young teenage kid. As it happened live and uncut. Not at all the “ass kissing” exercise you would expect from a star struck teen fan this truly is the history both good, bad and embarrassing of the worlds most unique rock band. AP Scorpywag Rating 10 -bloody marvellous!
