Alan Graham was married to Morrison’s sister Ann and has written a memoir about his friendship with Jim, another about his boyhood in Liverpool growing up around the corner from the Cavern Club, and a third about his work as “Captain Pink” with Larry Flynt.

Alan Graham knew all the Beatles as teenage Teddy Boys in his hometown of Liverpool, England, before moving to London, meeting Ann Morrison, the sister of budding rock icon Jim Morrison, and moving to Los Angeles with her. They stayed married for 22 years. Graham became a close friend and drinking companion of Jim Morrison from the time the Doors’ first hit, “Light My Fire,” was released in January of 1967, until Jim died in Paris under mysterious circumstances in 1971.
