The above link is an piece on RollingStone.com (I'm assuming it'll also be in the latest issue) regarding the last days of Jim Morrison. It's an interesting read and sad when you consider all of the poor deluded individuals who buy into the theory that the only people to see Morrison dead were Pam and the coroner, and that he faked his death to go live on some tropical island resort or something.
The article itself is actually an excerpt from a book titled Jim Morrison: Life, Death, Legend by Stephen Davis. First, has anyone read this, and if so is it worth picking up? I'd like to read a Morrison biography that doesn't sugarcoat as much as I felt No One Here Gets Out Alive did.
Second, the article mentions that Morrison did a recording with two awful American street musicians living in France. I'm sure it's a mess, but does anyone know where to find it? I did a search for it to no avail.
(I tried posting this thread earlier but for some reason it didn't go through, probably just a bumbling error on my part.)

The article is in the current edition of Rolling Stone (with Ray Charles on the cover). It's quite the good article, and there's some really, really good tributes to Charles and memories of his music, too. Definitely a collector's edition of Rolling Stone (if there IS such a thing).
No One Here Gets Out Alive was a great, great book. It was my first real introduction to The Doors and their history, and I think it's one of the better music books I've read.
So U2 finish mixing their album in late June, and all is well with the world. A couple of weeks ago, the band is on a photo shoot in France, and the Edge happens to bring along the CD to listen to in a portable player.
