Harvey Kubernik Provides New Windows On The Doors
March 19, 2018 (PRLEAP.COM) Entertainment NewsLast year, Harvey Kubernik authored "1967 A Complete Rock Music History of the Summer of Love," (Sterling, 2017), and "Inside Cave Hollywood," (Cave Hollywood, 2017), and now Otherworld Cottage Industries has published his latest book, "The Door's Summer's Gone," an exploration of their musical evolution, set in a time of domestic cultural turmoil.
"The Doors Summer's Gone" is Otherworld Cottage's second book by Kubernik, the first being "It Was Fifty Years Ago THE BEATLES Invade America and Hollywood" (2014), and if galley reviews are any indication, hopefully it will attract rock and pop culture enthusiasts of every stripe.
Daniel Weizmann, editor, writer, and author of "Drinking with Bukowski" writes "More than any band of rock's Golden Age, the Doors have been fogged up by the smoke and mirrors of legend and mythology. Kubernik's masterful anthology gets behind, under, and beyond the tall tales and casts an uncompromised eye on their real art, their real story, their real impact, and their real magic."
Music journalist, columnist, recording historian and musician Gary Pig Gold reports "As he always does when putting sound and motion onto page, Harvey Kubernik strips away every candy carnival coating with the precision of background and experience, getting straight to the heart of the real matters. Of course The Doors have for a half-century and counting far too often fallen victim to myth-raking and hyperbole – Jim Morrison, among others, always did want to touch Elvis, now didn't he? But Summer's Gone brings only the most insightful truths, from the most knowledgeable mouths, together under one cover. In between are The Doors."
And talk about serendipity, Robby Krieger and John Densmore of The Doors are the featured guests on the next edition of the AXS TV series, "The Big Interview With Dan Rather," on Tuesday, March 20 at 9 p.m. ET / 6 p.m. PT.
Kubernik also has a full page article appearing this April in Ugly Things magazine on the just released "THE DOORS – Live At the Isle of Wight" 1970 (Eagle Rock) DVD+CD.
"The Doors Summer's Gone" is currently sold on Amazon and Amazon Europe, with more online and brick and mortar retail outlets coming soon.
