“This book is the real story.”—Robby Krieger

“[John] Densmore's is the first Doors biography that feels like it was written for the right reasons, and it is easily the most informed account of the Doors' brief but brilliant life as a group. . . . Densmore is a fluent, articulate writer who both comprehends the Doors' unearthly power and is on familiar terms with their antecdedents in literature, theater, and myth.”Rolling Stone

“Well-written and touching . . . tells it all and tells it honestly.”The New York Times Book Review

“John Densmore's Riders of the Storm is as good an account of the history of the Doors as has been printed to date.”USA Today

Riders on the Storm is very enjoyable, especially its homespun and self-experienced insights. John Densmore is a survivor and a seeker.”—Oliver Stone

A great insight into one of my favorite bands. Densmore gives highly personal accounts of what it was like to be in the controversial band of it's time and with the one people called the Lizard King. A must read if your a Doors fan. It stays consistent in pace and is not boring in the least.
