50 Years Ago Jim Morrison Died

It was 50 years ago that Jim Morrison died. Morrison’s death is still shrouded in mystery. His legend grew 9 years later with the release of No One Here Gets Out Alive by Jerry Hopkins and Danny Sugerman and The Doors’ Greatest Hits album in 1980. The celebration of the Lizard King still continues as The Collected Works of Jim Morrison was released this month.

“Death makes angels of us all and gives us wings where we had shoulders round as ravens claws.”

People fear death even more than pain. It’s strange that they fear death. Life hurts a lot more than death. At the point of death, the pain is over. Yeah, I guess it is a friend.”

We’re reaching for death on the end of a candle We’re trying for something that’s already found us.”
