In memoriam: Jim Morrison

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.
