“I see myself as a huge fiery comet, a shooting star. Everyone stops, points up and gasps, “Oh look at that!” Then- whoosh, and I’m gone…and they’ll never see anything like it ever again… and they won’t be able to forget me- ever.” Jim Morrison

Jim Morrison certainly had a clear vision of his life. He was born December 08, 1943, and passed away July 03, 1971. For those who may not know he was a singer, songwriter, philosopher, and poet. He is most famous for his work with the musical group The Doors. I have traveled the world, and, no matter what language, if I sing a few verses of “Light My Fire”, everyone knows that song, and they always smile.

He did not play any musical instruments, but he heard all of his songs in his head. Then he would hum the tune to the other musicians in The Doors, and they would compose what he heard in his head.

At the young age of 21, Jim Morrison and Ray Manzarek formed the group The Doors. Within one year they had a recording contract and shot to the top of the rock and roll world with the song “Light My Fire” in the summer of 1967. From there everything they recorded was always on top of the rock and roll charts.

Jim never sought fame and always considered himself first and foremost a poet. As the money came pouring in, the rest of the group started buying fancy cars and houses. Jim did not care about material possessions. He lived very simply. All he usually had with him was his clothes and books. He was an avid reader and never was without a book in his hand. He lived in $10.00 a night motels. He tried to have a car, but every car he ever had he ended up wrecking. He finally gave up on cars.

He wrote four poetry books and paid to have them published. The thing he was most proud of was his books.

Jim was the first rock star to ever be arrested on stage during a performance. This happened December 9, 1967 in New Haven, Connecticut. He was booked on charges of indecency, public obscenity, disturbing the peace and resisting arrest. Before the concert Jim was backstage making out with a girl. A police officer spotted them and said they had to leave. Jim told the officer he was in the band. The cop got pushy with Jim. Jim tried to push him away and then the cop maced him.

Jim still went on stage and performed the concert. During the last song Jim started to tell the crowdabout what happened backstage. The cops shut the music down and came directly onstage to arrest him. From that time onward the police were always looking for an excuse to come after Jim.

  1. I didn’t know much, if anything, about Jim Morrison and the Doors until you and I have become friends. I always liked the songs “Light My Fire” and “Touch Me”, but I didn’t know who wrote them or performed them. I have come to appreciate Jim and his writings, whether it be songs or poetry, and the music of The Doors. The 60’s was a time of change in all areas of our lives. He most definitely was a part of it and did blaze across the sky. Even though the music of The Doors is not my first choice when I am listening, I have come to enjoy and appreciate the depth and inspiration that comes from it. As I have told you before, I love music and appreciate all artists and their genres of music; some more than others because of my preferences. Thank you, however, for sharing your thoughts about Jim Morrision and giving us more insight as to who he was, and thank you, Jim, for being here for a while and sharing your artistry and gifts. I know how much he has impacted and influenced your life.

  2. Hello Cherokee Billie. I am in the same vote as Anna. I was not familiar with Jim Morrison until I read this article. I also didn’t know he was the one who sang “Light My Fire” and “Touch Me”. I like him because he wasn’t just some crazy rock star. He held poetry near and dear to his heart. I like a person who actaully takes the time to read and educate himself. Many pictures I seen of Jim he was clutching a book, or kicking back and reading. I bet he was a humble guy who did not let stardom go to his head as if, he was better than anyone. An example is him standing in the crowd just like any ordinary person would do. It’s a shame the cops treated him the way they did that does make me sad. He did no wrong in wanting to speak the truth. Thanks for sharing this with us Cherokee Billie.


    • Dear Lisa:
      I’m glad I am educating you on classic rock and one of the most important writers from the sixties. Yes, Jim did always walk the streets without anybody around him and never cared too much about celebrity. He was unique been and still is. I’m glad you enjoyed this article.
      Many blessings,
      Cherokee Billie
