Jim Douglas Morrison was the lead vocalist of the rock band The Doors. He was an American songwriter, singer, and poet. He isregarded as one of the most influential and iconic frontmen in rock history by his critics and fans.
His fame comes from his poetic lyrics, unpredictable and erratic performances, his widely recognized voice, wild personality, and the dramatic circumstances of his life and death. His character displayed the youth counter culture and rebellious nature of the current generation.
He wrote or co-wrote some of the most iconic songs of the ’60s, including “Break On Through (To the Other Side),” “Moonlight Drive,” “The End,” “Hello, I Love You,” “People Are Strange,” “Roadhouse Blues,” “L.A. Woman,” “Light My Fire,” and “Riders on the Storm.”
He dies unexpectedly at the age of 27 in Paris, and as an autopsy was not performed, his death remains disputed. Right before his death, he exited from his band, after which it lost its popularity. He has been inducted in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of the Doors.
