No One Gets Out Here Alive, is biography of Jim Morrison and his involvement with the blues rock band The Doors in the late 1960s. I would argue at least the best rock band (except for perhaps Aerosmith) from the generation. People who came of age in the 1960s looking for a new life from which they had grew up in and also which their parents and grandparents grew up in. And Jim Morrison who was as anti-establishment as any vocalist and musician at least from Baby Boom Generation, was the vocalist and leader of The Doors. He was their star and The Doors were only as good and great as Jim Morrison was. The Lizard King was so good that he could be great on stage drunk, or sober. He could also be awful when he was drunk and just plain rude and obnoxious to the point where he was arrested onstage for foul language in 1967 in New Haven, but he could also give great performances while he was drunk. Like in London, Copenhagen and several other venues. And had he not have died early in 1970 and got his life on track and became more responsible, would probably still be performing today at the age of 73.
