Stronger Than Dirt (bilingual edition: Dutch and English in one book)
In juni 2021 verscheen een bescheiden boekwerk waarin centraal staat dat Doors-zanger Jim Morrison op 3 juli 2021 alweer een halve eeuw geleden het tijdelijke voor het eeuwige verwisselde. In Stronger Than Dirt lees je wat er bekend is over Jims laatste dagen in Parijs en de mythevorming in de decennia daarna. Daarnaast is het boek een ode aan wat het kan betekenen wanneer iemand zichzelf als een ware Doors-fan beschouwt. Hoe ver, hoe diep gaat dat? Is het een hobby of een levenswijze? Is het altijd plezierig, of zitten er ook schaduwkanten aan? Openhartig als altijd vertelt schrijver en longtime Doors-connaisseur Fred Baggen over hoe hij zijn jaren als Doors-fan en verzamelaar heeft ervaren. Een heel persoonlijk, voor de liefhebber herkenbaar boek: geschreven door een fan, vanuit het oogpunt van de fan en bedoeld voor fans — ter gelegenheid van een uniek, bitter 'jubileum'. Kortom: als jij Doors- en / of Jim Morrison-fan bent, is dit boek een must-have voor in jouw boekenkast!

In June 2021, a modest book was published focusing on the fact that Doors singer Jim Morrison exchanged the temporary for the eternal half a century ago on July 3, 2021. In Stronger Than Dirt you will read what is known about Jim's last days in Paris and the mythical status he soon achieved. In addition, the book is an ode to what it means when someone considers himself a true Doors fan. How far, how deep does it reach into someone's inner self? Is it a hobby or a way of life? Is it always enjoyable, or are there downsides? As candid as ever, writer and longtime Doors connoisseur Fred Baggen writes about how he experienced his years as a Doors fan and collector. A very personal, recognizable book: written by a fan, from a fan's point of view, meant to be read by fans — on the occasion of a unique, bitter 'anniversary'. In short: if you are a Doors and / or Jim Morrison fan, this book is a must-have for your book collection!
