Jim Morrison was a truly remarkable guy. He was the son of a Navy Admiral, brought up in the same kind of middle-class comfort that he (and many others)sought, and still seek, to rebell against. In short, Jim was prepared to go over the edge to follow what he believed to be his true path. He had the courage to forsake the safety of his life and choose the stormy waters to sail into. He did not compromise. Ever. But he paid the ultimate price. But for people like Jim, there is no old age or retirement. Only immortality. And that would be ruined if he was now an old wash-out like that other legend Brando faded into. Sadly Jim was flawed, like all of us. the difference was that his flaw (alcoholisim) was used to vilify him and prosecute him by a society that (in the 1960's) was terrifyed of what him and his ilk stood for.
'Jim Morrison lived out there on the edge. All the time. Somebody has to, in order to make up for those of us who choose to play it safe all the time.' - Danny Sugarman

A great american poet. He had an extrodinary mind but beleived that intoxication was his muse. He Changed the face of music forever. His band the Doors was very popular in the 60's and 70's, but was no more when Jim died of heart failure in 1971.
Popular songs were break on through, light my fire. His Breakout moment with the Doors at the Whisky-a-go-go.

Jim Morrison is GOD. He is the all time best rock-poet in the universe. He rapes all rap artists who think they can sing. His singing touches everyone who listens to him. The Doors were the all time coolest sixties band, led by Jim.
Jim Morrison sings great and puts on a good show. Nelly eats dick.

Jim is everything a normal guy, will never achieve. Hi was not only an amazing musician, with an incredible voice, who would touch anyone's soul, but an extremely good poet. His lyrics, are a fountain of inspiration, placed in the terrific band "The doors" whom rythms may rip your heart out, if you let them.
Tell me where your freedom lies...

A Great man who was in the Doors and thought he was possesed by a native american shaman at age 4. He used this "possesion", to write the most captivating lyrics the world has ever seen. (Yes even better than some John Lennon stuff) Some of his most Famous songs were: LA Woman, Break on Through, and the End (Light my fire left out because the guitarist(Robby Krieger (this is where it gets crazy with three parentheses)) wrote it)Some of his other Alter egos you might know him as are: Mr Morrison, Mr Mojo Rising, and The lizard king. After his death in Paris in 1971 a conspiracy arose about him being in Africa living in peace and quiet. No one will really know because only three people saw him dead. His girlfriend(Pam), the doctor that pronounced him dead, and the driver that drove him to the Pierre Lachaise cemetery.
Me: Hey Taylor isn't Jim Morrison god.
Taylor: He can't be. He isn't Dead remember? He's in Africa.
Me: O yeah.

Jim Morrison was more than the typical musician or poet, he was a revolutionist and believer in the supernatural. His own inspiration with alcohol and psychadelics might have led to his downfall, but it is said that he is still alive today. He knew how to control an audience and was very interested in psychology.

The music of The Doors will remain timeless, and his name will always be known.
