July 03, 2013 marks 42 years since Jim Morrison passed into spirit.

“The most important kind of freedom is to be what you really are. You trade in your reality for a role. You trade in your sense for an act. You give up your ability to feel, and in exchange, put on a mask. There can’t be any large-scale revolution until there’s a personal revolution, on an individual level. It’s got to happen inside first.” ~ Jim Morrison 1943-1971

“In each new generation’s quest for its own freedom, Jim is there. The Doors are there.” Ray Manzarek 1939-2013

It’s hard to believe that Jim Morrison has been dead for 42 years. In the short 27 years that he lived he left a major impact on the world. He said, “No one will ever forget me, Ever.” And what a true statement that has been. You can go to any country in the world and sing a few bars of “Light My Fire” and people will instantly recognized that song. If you show people a picture of Jim Morrison they know exactly who he is.

He lived a hard fast life, but he left so much behind that has inspired so many people. There are those that love to judge him because he drank and did drugs, but that is not the sum total of the man. He was a philosopher, poet, song writer, and singer. The magnitude of work that he left behind shows that he did not spend all of his time stoned out of his mind. He understood his purpose in this life and knew that he would not live long. How many people understand their purpose in life at the age of 18?

I consider Jim Morrison one of the most spiritual people in rock and roll music although many would not think so. He studied philosophy and many different spiritual teachings and these are reflected in his songs and poetry. Often people do not get what he was saying because it goes beyond the way that many express themselves artistically. He was an old soul who understood more than most. Jim loved pushing people’s buttons.

This year Ray Manzarek the cofounder of The Doors passed into spirit. I know that Ray and Jim are making beautiful music together once again

He was a true rebel and never compromised himself.

Jim Morrison will always be remembered!

  1. […] Remembering Jim Morrison 42 Years Later! (cherokeebillie.wordpress.com) […]

  2. There are a few that are pretty good. I would highly suggest A Feast of Friends by Frank Lisciandro. This book is composed of interviews from people that knew Jim, some in his childhood years, some during film school, some from being around that band, and a few others. The book shows all of Jim’s different personalities based on his relationship with that person. Another book I like is The Lizard King Was Here by Mark Opsasnick. This book focuses on Jim’s teenage years while living in Alexandria Virginia (about 15-18 years old) I like this book because it talks about a part of Jim’s life that you normally do not hear about and is very in depth and detailed. Both of these books unfortunately, can not be bought in stores, but I ordered both from amazon and they were definitely worth it. The Doors coffee table book is nice, and has a lot of nice glossy pictures. It shares many interviews from Jim’s family and the other members of The Doors. The book’s author is listed at Ben Fong-Terres. I like the books by John and Ray (ROTS and LMF) They both talk about the band’s and the member’s personal relationship with Jim. Break on Through by James Riordan and Jerry Prochnicky is great for the basics, and seems to be as factual as a biography can be. In general I would not suggest NOHGOA because it is not as factually correct as other books out there, its great for some basic stuff, but not for strict information. If you could manage to buy the book online I would suggest FOF but any books listed would be pretty good.

  3. Three days after the concert, the city of Miami filed an arrest warrant for Morrison, charging him with public indecency, profanity and drunkenness. The complaint was filed by an office worker for the state attorney general who happened to be at the concert. Despite the fact that this sort of controversy had been Morrison’s bread and butter for three years, the media coverage was brutal and the band took big hits, both in morale and the pocketbook. Major venues either refused to book The Doors or required 5-figure “obscenity deposits,” which the band would forfeit in the unlikely (hah!) event that Morrison did anything risque.
