The Last 24 Hours Of Jim Morrison!

James Douglas “Jim” Morrison (8 Dec 1943 – 3 July 1971), was best remembered as the lead singer of Los Angeles rock band The Doors. Singer and songwriter, Jim Morrison was born as James Douglas Morrison on December 8, 1943 in Melbourne, Florida. His mother, Clara Clarke Morrison, was a homemaker, and his father, George Stephen Morrison, was a naval aviator who rose to the rank of Real Admiral. Morrison was well known for often improvising spoken word poetry passages while the band played live. Due to his wild personality and performances, he is regarded by critics and fans as one of the most iconic, charismatic, and pioneering front men in rock music history. Morrison was ranked number 47 on Rolling Stone’s list of the “100 Greatest Singers of All Time”, and number 22 on Classic Rock Magazine’s “50 Greatest Singers In Rock”.Morrison was known as the self-proclaimed “King of Orgasmic Rock”.

During his early years, Jim Morrison was a dutiful and highly intelligent child, excelling at school and taking a particular interest in reading, writing and drawing. He underwent a traumatic but formative experience around the age of five when driving with his family through the New Mexico desert. A truck packed with Indian workers had crashed, leaving dead and mutilated bodies of the victims strewn across the highway. Although his family members have since suggested that Morrison greatly exaggerated the incident, it nevertheless made a deep impression on him that he described years later in the lyrics of his song “Peace Frog”. From a young age, Morrison developed an alcohol dependency which led to his death at the age of 27in Paris. He is alleged to have died of a heroin overdose, but as no autopsy was performed, the exact cause of his death is still disputed.

Morrison was, and continues to be, one of the most popular and influential singer-songwriters in rock history. The Doors’ catalog has become an unequivocal staple of classic rock radio stations. The statistics are impressive. Every album in the Doors catalog, for instance, doubled or tripled its sales in 1980 over the previous year. To this day Morrison is widely regarded as the prototypical rock-star: surly, sexy, scandalous, and mysterious.

Through the words of Kurt Cobian

“Punk is musical freedom. It’s saying, doing and playing what you want. In Webster’s terms, ‘nirvana’ means freedom from pain, suffering and the external world, and that’s pretty close to my definition of Punk Rock.”~ Kurt Cobain

“Wanting to be someone else is a waste of the person you are.” ~ Kurt Cobain

“If you die you’re completely happy and your soul somewhere lives on. I’m not afraid of dying. Total peace after death, becoming someone else is the best hope I’ve got.” ~ Kurt Cobain

“I really haven’t had that exciting of a life. There are a lot of things I wish I would have done, instead of just sitting around and complaining about having a boring life. So I pretty much like to make it up. I’d rather tell a story about somebody else.” ~ Kurt Cobain

“I was looking for something a lot heavier, yet melodic at the same time. Something different from heavy metal, a different attitude.” ~ Kurt Cobain
