Last week, I blogged about Robert Johnson, blues great who died at age 27 in 1938.
Jim Morrison, poet, songwriter, and lead singer for The Doors met the same fate at 27.
Here’s one of my favourites, the title track from the album LA Woman, released only three months before Jim Morrison’s death in Paris, France.
To this day, a cloud of mystery hangs over the way he died. Was it a heroin overdose, negligence on his girlfriend’s part, or heart failure as cited on the death certificate?
No autopsy was ever performed.
Jim Morrison died July 3, 1971.
