I Remember Jim Morrison Too
The second volume of Graham‘s chronicles follows him to USA in the 1960s, where he is accepted as the son in law of Anne’s father, George Stephen Morrison, the Navy Admiral who started the Vietnam War, also meeting her mother, the strong-willed Clara Morrison, and her two brothers, Andy and Jim. Jim Morrison, lead singer of the Doors, had recently become one of the most popular rock stars of the era and cut all ties with his parents, reinventing himself as an arbitrary species. This book is as intimate a portrait of Jim Morrison’s character and the forces which shaped his life and death as the reader is ever likely to encounter, independent of the mythic distance afforded late Jim. Where other biographers are moved to turn Jim’s story into a train wreck and charge admission, Alan Graham’s inspiration is to commemorate the emotional effect of their time together. “More than forty books have been published about him, and each one reveals nothing more than the last. The reason for this is because no one in the Morrison clan has ever revealed the true details (nor will they ever) about Jim’s life inside the family. My personal account of these events provides rare glimpses and intimate insights into the other side of Jim Morrison and the people who loved him.” Recent updates include a revised beginning detailing Graham’s time spent in the employ of Sylvester Stallone as a bodyguard/tutor for his son, Sage Moonblood Stallone (1976-2012), at the time a rambunctious, attention-hungry child, who grew up to be a filmmaker, and died far too young.
