I saw Jim Morrison and The Doors on August 1968 at The Allan Theater in Cleveland,Ohio. It was the summer of my 16th birthday. I have never forgotten how exciting he was on stage. May he rest in poetic peace.
Whether you like Doors music or not, the fact is that these three particular musicians combined with Jim’s voice and words created a distinctive haunting sound. It’s a sound that is very easily recognized and not easily confused with ANY other band that ever existed. It is utterly unique, which is why I have always been drawn to it. Whatever you think of Jim, he was an original.
Crazy how Morrison, Jimmi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, and Brian Jones all passed away within two years of each other. They were arguably the most talented artists of the hippie counterculture era.
I think Jim Morrison was a very interesting guy, he had that mystery about him. A real genius and a legend. His writings are truly amazing. It’s sad he died too young because I think he could of done more amazing things if he lived.The Doors are a great band.
Jim Morrison in my opinion is one of the truest artists I’ve ever listen to and The Doors are forever one of my favorite bands of all time
The thing most people miss about Jim Morrison was that he was a brilliant writer. His poetry and lyrics are genius level. He was extremely talented as a writer.
Saw the doors in 69 – they were great. Jim performed all night until 5 am . There were only about 50 people left in the audience.
The dark erotic beauty of his lyrics has never been equaled. He was indeed a consummate poet who walked the knife edge between genius and madness. I still miss him.
The only essay I ever enjoyed writing in high school was on the life and death of Jim Morrison. It was an essay and powerpoint presentation. My teacher gave me a perfect score on both.
