Daniel Stephen "Danny" Sugerman (October 11, 1954 – January 5, 2005) was the second manager of the Los Angeles-based rock band The Doors, and wrote several books about Jim Morrison and The Doors, including No One Here Gets Out Alive (co-authored with Jerry Hopkins), and the autobiography Wonderland Avenue. Sugerman began working with The Doors when he was 12 years old, starting out answering their fan mail. By the age of 17, Sugerman replaced the original Doors manager, Bill Siddons, shortly after Morrison's death in 1971.

Personal life

Sugerman married Fawn Hall of the Iran–Contra affair fame in 1991 and they remained married until his death. They briefly met co-founder Rod Underhill while Hall was employed there. Underhill later stated that "Sugerman was very interesting. He had appeared to go out of his way to appear visually like Jim Morrison. Same type of haircut, similar clothing. The similarity was uncanny." Sugerman discussed his idolization of Morrison in detail, in part of his book Wonderland Avenue. Sugerman was a recovering heroin addict who found solace in Buddhism.


He died on January 5, 2005 after a prolonged struggle with lung cancer.
