Jerry Hopkins (1935-2018)

Jerry Hopkins, biographer of Jim Morrison, is dead at 82.

Mr. Hopkins produced an eclectic range of work that was largely about rock music but that also included books and articles about exotic food, sex, travel and Hawaiian musical instruments

(I never did read No One Here Gets Out Alive, but I certainly recall how big a deal both it and the Doors seemed at the time—a divisive moment among my music friends, even.)
