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 replaced the original Doors manager, Bill Siddons, shortly after Morrison's death in 1971. He helped film director Oliver Stone with the production of the 1991 movie The Doors. Sugerman began working with The Doors when he was 12 years old, starting out answering their fan mail.
Sugerman also managed Iggy Pop for a period, and produced his song "Repo Man". He also wrote Appetite For Destruction: The Days of Guns N' Roses in 1991.
Sugerman married Fawn Hall of the Iran-Contra affair fame in 1991 and they remained married until his death. They briefly met MP3.com 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 idolisation of Morrison in detail, as part of '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, and was interred in the Westwood Village Memorial Park Cemetery in Los Angeles.
