The Doors Unhinged – John Densmore
The Doors drummer, John Densmore, has written a new ‘tell-all’ book, The Doors: Unhinged (Jim Morrison’s Legacy Goes on Trial), which mainly focuses on Densmore’s legal battles with the other two surviving band members over the right to use The Doors’ name. The book also addresses, what Densmore calls, the “greed gene” and how this part of the human psyche propels individuals toward the accumulation of more and more wealth, even at the expense of their principles, friendships, and the well being of society. At the same time, Densmore examines how this conflict mirrors and reflects on a much larger societal issue — that no amount of money seems to be enough for even the wealthiest people.
Rather than promoting his new book with a traditional book store tour, Densmore is taking The Doors: Unhinged to music stores for all of his promo events.
