Craig Kee Street taught a writing workshop at Wayne State College in Wayne, Nebraska in '94 or '95.  I was in his class and he claimed to have partied with    Morrison, bedded Janis Joplin and played with Canned Heat.  He was Native American and a very interesting fellow.  I was a 26 year old undergrad and ended up drinking with him and making out with him and being totally caught up in his stories.  Whether they were true or not, who knows?  He gave me a signed copy of one of his books and I sent him a t-shirt from the bar I worked at to his address in Idaho, where he lived with his lady partner and child.  Never heard from  him since.

He never claims to be a roadie on the Doors tour.   He fictionally claims, never trying to pass it off as reality that he partied with Jim before Jim became famous or in a group.   Just as Jim found a love for being in a band, pretending to play guitar for a group they part ways and Street's character dies at his own hand.

I read this book about 20 years ago and really enjoyed it. I lent it to a friend and that was the last I saw of it. I'll have to get another copy as I remember it fondly.

I can answer almost any question in reference to the life of Jim Morrison. I have been a Doors fan for as long as I can remember, and I am a self proclaimed Jim Morrison junkie. I have read eight biographies and all of Jim's poerty books. I am always looking for new literature to increase my knowledge.


I have read eight biographies on the life of Jim Morrison, including "Break On Through, The Life And Death of Jim Morrison" by James Riordan and Jerry Prochnicky, "No One Here Gets Out Alive" by Jerry Hopkins and Danny Surgarman, "The Lizard King The Essential Jim Morrison" by Jerry Hopkins, "Angels Dance and Angels Die" by Patricia Butler, "The Doors In Their Own Words" by Andrew Doe and John Tobler, "Jim Morrison An Hour For Magic" by Frank Lisciandro, "Wild Child: Life With Jim Morrison" and " Jim Morrison: Life, Death, Legand". I have also read his poetry books "The Lords and the New Creatures", "Wilderness volume 1", and " The American Night volume 2". I enjoy searching the internet for new knowledge on Jim Morrison. I am confident I could correctly answer almost any question about him.
