Just wanted to share my picture of Morrison's grave which I shot on Sep.07, 2014. We left, got on the subway and I was checking my pictures—noticed the ray of light.

Doors front man and legendary musician Jim Morrison may have known a thing or two about the future of music.

Wise beyond his years, Morrison often quoted the works of Friedrich Nietzsche and Jack Kerouac, implementing their wisdom in to his lyrics. His personality, songwriting ability, and voice led to him being regarded as one of the most iconic front men in the history of music, despite his early death at the age of 27.
In this 1969 interview he pretty much nails his prediction of the next generation's music.

The Doors' 1968 documentary Feast of Friends, which the band produced themselves and never officially released, will finally get a proper unveiling on November 11, when Eagle Rock Entertainment issues DVD and Blu-ray versions of the ultra-rare work. Although the film did screen at film festivals during Jim Morrison's lifetime, it has only been available in bootleg form until now.

Shot during the band's 1968 summer tour, the film intercuts concert performances with behind-the-scenes footage of the group doing whatever it is rock stars do when they're not on stage. A press release describes the movie as "sometimes playful, sensitive, chaotic and touching." Sounds like The Doors! Watch the trailer below.

jim-morrison-ellen-vaman-298x164Late legendary American poet, Jim Morrison has left us with beautiful music that has changed the way we listen to rock and roll forever. Morrison left this world at a young age of twenty-seven. He left this world with more than just lyrics in a song; he left poems in every work of art he sang.

Morrison is widely known as the outrageous lead singer of The Doors. The band got its name from Morrison's favorite poem by William Blake. ''If the doors of perception were cleansed everything would appear to man as it is, infinite.'' He took the idea of ''the doors'' being the doors of our minds and which that open with drugs. The doors of perception were open when the band was formed on July 1965.

Featured Book

The Doors On The Road
by Greg Shaw provides a comprehensive timeline of live performances, reviews of the shows, stage antics of the performers, gossip related to the events, and recording sessions.

There were all these little rooms backstage, see, and i was talking to a girl in one of the rooms—it was actually a shower room, I guess. Then this cop came in and stared hassling me and sprayed some gas in my eyes—it blinds you temporarily—and finally someone told him that I was with The Doors and was supposed to be there, or something like that. The cop let me go. Later, when i was onstage, i was singing "Back Door Man" and in the middle I started telling the crowd what had happened backstage.

—Jim Morrison
