Author Opens ‘Doors’ With New Book

SAN DIEGO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Jim Morrison may remain mysterious and misunderstood, but one author is using his family ties to tell the singer’s true tale.

Alan Graham is the author of I Remember (Dark Ryders Publishing), a candid, behind-the-music look at legendary Doors singer Jim Morrison.

Graham, who was married to Morrison’s sister, Anne, for 22 years, says that most people have an incomplete picture of the free-spirited frontman.

He says, “He wasn’t just this mythological Lizard King that people talk about. He was tragic, funny, intelligent – he was human.”

Graham recounts Christmases spent with the iconic performer, and pranks that Morrison pulled, including a time he and his girlfriend ditched Graham at a funeral home.

But the book doesn’t pull any punches about the “Light My Fire” singer’s classic debauchery either.

On a visit to Morrison’s Hollywood home, Graham once had to knock out Morrison after he got too drunk and rowdy, and the two were also involved in a 10-car pileup in the Hollywood hills.

I Remember hits shelves March 14.
