37. Danny Sugerman - Wonderland Avenue: Tales Of Glamour And Excess (1989)
Teenage Sugerman was on the LA scene in the late 1960s and ended up being mentored by none other than Jim Morrison. He wrote the original Doors book (No One Here Gets Out Alive), but this is a more personal journey. After Morrison dies, Sugerman ends up living with Iggy Pop, who is NOT a good housemate. Danny comes home one afternoon to find the Igster unconscious with the fridge on top of him. Sugerman's answer is to drive Iggy into the desert and leave him there. True story.
