AC/DC said it best: "Rock & Roll ain't noise pollution. Rock & Roll ain't gonna die." And for so many bands, truer words have never been spoken. Take The Doors. Born in the California of the sixties when political tensions were heating up and the youth were on the borderline of getting angry and getting high, the band created a whirlwind of hypnotic music before the death of their creative lead singer, Jim Morrison. Forty-three years later, their music is still on the airwaves, still seducing the youth with their charismatic psychedelic nuggets. Forty-three years from now, you will still be able to find "People Are Strange," "Riders On The Storm" and "Light My Fire" playing somewhere. It's almost a guarantee.
Forget what you think you know. How Jim Morrison REALLY died, by the people who found the body, moved the body and buried him…
In the early summer of 2009 I commissioned Max Bell to write a feature on LA Woman and The Death of Jim Morrison.

I finished up at UCLA. The only reason I did it is because I didn't want to go in the Army, and I didn't want to work—and that's the damned truth.
