44th Anniversary of Jim Morrison's Death

I am really excited!! I have decided to redesign Jim Morrison Project in honor of the 44th anniversary of his death on July 3, 1971. This website will remain live; however, I won't be adding any new content to it. There are more than a thousand blog posts to peruse until I relaunch the new site on July 3, 2015.

Although I could have kept the same "look and feel," I decided to do a complete make-over. This will be the fourth redesign of Jim Morrison Project since I launched the original website on July 3, 2011. For me, this project, has been a labor of love & inspiration!

Venice Beach holds a special place in rock 'n' roll history as the birthplace of the band the Doors.

Jim Morrison Predicts The Current State Of Music Forty Years Ago

Welcome to the 27 club, a place for disturbed, young geniuses to leave their mark.

A membership to the 27 club demands talent with unlimited potential, but unfortunately, it also means being put to bed at the ripe age of 27, often due to lifestyles entrenched in drug and alcohol abuse, or violent ends, such as homicide or suicide. However, what made these minds need to escape themselves, was the very same depths from where a certain kind of genius lay; where melodies came from people like Amy Winehouse, or, Jimi Hendrix; and thought-provoking performances and lyrics were churned forth, from the likes of those such as The Doors front man, Jim Morrison.

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.

In a large concert situation, I think historians are necessary because it gets to be more than just a musical event. It turns into a bit of a spectacle. I'm too objective about it. I like to just let it happen—direct it a little consciously, maybe, but just kind of follow the vibrations i get in each particular circumstances. We don't plan theatrics.
