Stairway To Heaven

Social media has been abuzz the last few weeks, mourning what seems like an unusual number of rock star deaths. It started with the demise of Scott Weiland (Dec. 3, 2015) and has continued unabated through Lemmy Kilmister (Dec. 28), Natalie Cole (Dec. 31), David Bowie (Jan. 10, 2016), Mic Gillette (trumpeter for Tower of Power, Jan. 17), Dale Griffin (drummer for Mott the Hoople, Jan. 17), and Glenn Frey (Jan. 18).

Let Me Tell You About Myself


The idea for Jim Morrison Project came to me when I went to rehab in 2010 for alcoholism and substance abuse. Jim Morrison was a huge inspiration during my recovery. Because of him, I am sober today.
