Music Monday and Jim Morrison

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.

  3. I love his voice. It’s so smooth and sensual no matter what he sang.

  4. He was a wild man and proud of it, a deeper thinker than many give him credit for. “L.A. Woman” is my favorite of his work. 🙂

  5. The Doors are one of my all-time favorite bands. Jim Morrison is certainly not everybody’s cup of tea, but that’s what I love about him. He was brilliant and unlike any other musician out there. L.A. Woman is one of the greatest songs ever made.

    My dad was very confused my by obsession with The Doors in high school. I used to play their music every morning before school. He still says to this day: “You were born a hippie.”
