Description

A spellbinding journey through 1960s counterculture and a fascinating window into the life on an iconic musician, Set the Night on Fire is a touching, eye-opening memoir from the Doors guitarist and co-songwriter Robby Krieger.

Few bands are as shrouded in the murky haze of rock mythology as The Doors, and parsing fact from fiction has been a virtually impossible task. But now, after fifty years, The Doors’ notoriously quiet guitarist is finally breaking his silence to set the record straight.

Through a series of vignettes, Robby takes readers back to where it all happened: the pawn shop where he bought his first guitar; the jail cell he was tossed into after a teenage drug bust; his parents’ living room where his first songwriting sessions with Jim Morrison took place; and the many concert venues that erupted into historic riots.

Robby also goes into heartbreaking detail about his life’s most difficult struggles, ranging from drug addiction to cancer, but he balances out the sorrow with humorous anecdotes about run-ins with unstable fans, famous musicians, and one really angry monk. Set the Night on Fire is at once an insightful time capsule of 1960s counterculture and a moving reflection on what it means to find oneself as a musician. It’s not only a must-read for Doors fans, but an essential volume of American pop.
