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.
"There are things known, and there are things unknown, and inbetween is
The Doors."

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.
