The Book

Welcome to the behind-the-scenes world of rock legends The Doors. If your only experience with The Doors is spinning their albums, this book will widen your horizons. Like the lives of other stars, the story of The Doors is a complicated mix of raw talent, egos and conflict. This book will give an insiders view of what made their success and what ultimately led to their demise. Having played a small part in this rock and roll tale , some things remain etched in memory. The raw energy, excitement, and chaos. It is sad that the closing act of The Doors performances happened in a run down former cotton warehouse in the Crescent City with an out of control intoxicated Jim Morrison smashing not only the stage but also The Doors futures

What readers are saying?

Vince Treanor’s memoir Behind The Doors is a candid and contrary view of The Doors from the inside. Chronologically structured like an elaborate diary, Vince offers a date-by-date tour schedule filled with his reflections on the internal workings of the group and their management, from late 1967 through til the closing of the Doors in 1972. Vince challenges the common myths, and sheds unrivalled detail on Morrisons onstage arrest in New Haven, the consequences of the three Doors performing without Morrison in Amsterdam, an elaborate retelling of the Miami incident, the day Paul Rothchild walked out on The Doors, and Morrison’s onstage demise in New Orleans. If you want to know about the inner workings of The Doors and their interpersonal relationships from someone who was on stage, in the studio, in the Office and on the road with The Doors for five years, look no further. Vince doesn’t hold back. Travis Williamson, Adelaide, South Australia

 

If you want a nuts and bolts view of life on the road with rock legends, the good, the bad and the ugly, READ THIS BOOK. Al O’Meara (One of the Band Boys for The Doors, and present backstage in New Orleans)

 

Vince Treanor’s book is an eye opening peek behind the curtain of one of the most legendary rock groups in history.  This is the one truly accurate account of life backstage with The Doors.  Not only was Vince influential in the inner workings of this legendary and controversial rock band, he also gave me my start.  I thank him for writing his memoirs, telling never before heard stories, and including me from time to time. Stuart Ross, former “Band Boy”
