Doors Inducted Into the Ultimate Classic Rock Hall of Fame

The Doors have easily earned induction into the 100-percent fan-voted Ultimate Classic Rock Hall of Fame, brushing aside Jimi Hendrix along the way.

Both came of musical age in the late '60s, helping to define the emerging youth culture—and both Hendrix and Doors frontman Jim Morrison tragically ended up in the so-called "27 Club" of musicians who've died far too early. But the similarities didn’t carry over into your balloting.

It's impossible to predict what will happen once a Super Bowl gets underway.

Some games are cliffhangers that go down to the final seconds on the clock. Others are blowouts, so the only drama involves the commercials on our television sets, not the action on the field.

Video shared by on in Jim Morrison

Jim Morrison driving his 1967 Shelby G.T. 500. The clip is from the film When You're Strange (directed by Tom DiCillo) which is in turn borrowed from the movie HWY: An American Pastoral which Jim made in 1969 with some friends (Paul Ferrara, Babe Hill, and Frank Lisciandro). This footage is considerably clearer than my previous post of Jim driving the car. Go full screen with this clip, the resolution is killer. You can even see dust on the car it's so crisp and clear.

"The Curse Of J27" On The Big Screen Again

Forty-four years after the death of the American singer-songwriter Janis Lyn Joplin, who died of an overdose at the age 27, the biopic of her life has been, finally, defined. It remained on standby for years because of problems related to difficulty of finding a director and a team of scriptwriters. Its protagonist, the American actress, born in 1974 in Italy, Amy Adams, will bring the singer on the big screen with the Canadian writer-director Jean-Marc Vallee who has achieved worldwide success with the film Dallas Buyers Club.

Amy Adams as Janis Joplin

I was a good student; read a lot. But I was always talking when I wasn't supposed to, so they made me sit at a special table—nothing bad enough to get expelled for. I got through school. Went to Florida State University mainly because I couldn't think of anything else to do.
