Book Review: "The Doors - Summer's Gone"

Here’s another kick-ass compendium of interviews, courtesy of journalist/historian Harvey Kubernik, who seems to have a bottomless trove of chats with the band’s members, intimates and authorities. Though the best anecdotes are about close encounters with singer Jim Morrison (Burton Cummings’ tale is mind-blowing), the revelations delivered by Doors sound engineer Bruce Botnick are just as engrossing. If you’re a deep Doors fan (but you don’t know about, say, the band’s brush with Michelangelo Antonioni) this book is for you.
