The Doors' Ray Manzarek Thought Jim Morrison Might Have Faked His Own Death

by Andrew Magnotta

Not everyone was convinced that Jim Morrison really died in Paris in 1971, and that included at least one member of the rock icon's own band.

The Doors' Ray Manzarek often argued that it was possible that the mercurial 'Lizard King' faked his demise at age 27 in order to escape the pressure of being a pop star, a 20th century icon and a lightning rod for criticism.

While Robby Krieger found the theory amusing at best, he tells Classic Rock magazine that Manzarek seemed to lend it more credence.

"I used to love talking to Ray, and he would always say, 'I wouldn't be surprised if Jim turned up,'" Krieger said. "And I used to think, 'Come on, man, you don't really believe that, do you?' That was pretty much bulls--t."
