One of the most talented song-writers and singers of his century. Front man of the amazing band the doors
. He was the third member of the 27 club
and predicted that he would be, stating after Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix's death "you're looking at the third". He was found dead in his bathroom in Paris by his soulmate Pam, although the exact reason for his death is still unknown, it is believed to have to do with heroin but it is not certain. There was also speculation of him trying to flee to africa from his rockstar lifestyle. Although many people think he did, he DID NOT write the door's hit song "light my fire" but wrote the mojority of the bands lyrics. His career basically ended at a show in miami when he exposed himself on stage and was filled with lawsuits. He was known to be unpredictable, especially when performing and was known to change music lyrics on a whim. He was very controversial and in his song "the end" added "Father, I want to kill you.. Mother, I want to fuck you" ... oedipus-like lyrics. A brilliant man nonetheless. He didn't decide to make a band until he was in college and didn't enjoy filmmaking as much as he had hoped to. While in college, he had a room with books from floor to ceiling on every wall and would challenge his friends to pick any book while he had his eyes cloesd, and read just a line or two.. he would instantly tell them the name of the book and the author. He approached his friend Ray (who became a member of the doors) and sang him "moonlight drive". He had many inspirations for his song lyrics, when he was five years old he was driving in the car with his family and saw a family of native americans who had just gotten into a car accident and were all basically dying on the side of the road. in his song "Peace Frogs" there is a line that states "Indians scattered on dawns highway bleeding". Overall Jim Morrison was a brilliant, talented man and any poet should wish to write half as well as he did.
