“One of the root aspects is that the book really isn't about The Doors per se, it's about a dynamic in modern culture. The Doors just were the first, best example of it! But the idea is to let The Doors become a bridge to understanding that more vague-seeming subject.”
What really happened at the great debacle of The Doors, the Miami concert - and why?
What is the mass sacrificial spectacle and how are The Doors related to it?
