James Douglas “Jim” Morrison
December 8, 1943-July 3, 1971
Jim Morrison was the lead singer and lyricist of The Doors. He died at the age of 27 in Paris, France. While he had a severe drug and alcohol addiction, no autopsy was performed so the exact cause of his death is unknown.
I became a fan of The Doors right after high school. The songs Waiting for the Sun and the incredibly dark and frightening The End cemented my fandom. I have been a fan since and will still pop in a Doors CD in between my metal. I personally feel that they were the precursor to metal, that they led into Black Sabbath, who then refined the sound.
Lets all take a moment to send out good vibes to those of his family and friends who are left and let them know he is not forgotten.
