Led by reckless genius Jim Morrison and shrouded in a haze of sexual mysticism, the Doors embody sixties rebellion like no other act. Ride the Snake pieces together the facts of their short but incandescent career, drawing upon an eclectic array of interviews, articles, newspaper reports, trial documents, FBI reports and more. From college days at UCLA, and the Doors’ first bourbon-fuelled appearances on Sunset Strip, through to Morrison’s untimely death in 1971, it tells their heady history in full. Worshipped by fans and reviled by the establishment, Morrison’s scandalous conduct — both on and off the stage – is the stuff of legend. Ride the Snake censors not a single scandal in the Doors’ sensational history — presenting the finest writing on the band ever to appear in print.

Meticulously selected by Jerry Hopkins — co-author of No One Here Gets Out Alive, the multi-million-copy-selling, definitive biography of Jim Morrison — Ride the Snake is a collection of the finest writing on the Doors by rock journalists, cultural commentators, journalists, scholars, and biographers, alongside contributions from their friends and acquaintances. This book is essential reading for any serious Doors fan, providing a fascinating overview of a band who continue to exert a huge influence on music and popular culture.
