‘He Was So Different From Anybody Else’: Robby Krieger Talks About Jim Morrison and The Doors In His New Memoir

by David Chiu

Guitar legend Robby Krieger wants to set the record straight about one of the most infamous moments surrounding his former band the Doors: the accusation that singer Jim Morrison exposed himself to the audience at a Doors concert in Miami in March 1969.

That alleged gesture prompted criminal charges against Morrison and the cancellation of 15 tour dates for the band.

A jury at Morrison's trial the following year found him guilty of indecent exposure and he was sentenced to six months in prison; the singer, who was free on bond, died in Paris in 1971 as he was appealing the verdict. (In 2010, Morrison received a posthumous pardon from the Florida clemency board).
