Rock Band Manager, Author. A native of the Los Angeles, he was hooked on The Doors after seeing a concert at age 13. He was hired by Jim Morrison to put together a band scrapbook, and fell into the excesses of the rock 'n' roll lifestyle. After Morrison's death in Paris in 1971, he became increasingly involved with the surviving members' career and eventually served as their manager. In 1980, he co-wrote The Doors best selling biography, “No One Here Gets Out Alive,” regenerating new interest in the band. He also went on to manage rock artist Iggy Pop, but maintained his connection with the Doors and served as a technical advisor on Oliver Stone’s 1991 movie “The Doors.” He wrote or edited other books about Morrison and the band, including "The Doors" and "The Complete Illustrated Lyrics." In the 1990’s he penned an autobiographical novel, "Wonderland Avenue: Tales of Glamour and Excess," and a book about the L.A. hard rock band Guns N' Roses, "Appetite for Destruction." A recovering addict, he was active in such organizations as the Drug Policy Foundation, Musicians Assistance Program and NARAS' MusiCares Foundation. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
