The last Doors concert with Jim Morrison ended 45 years ago today, bringing a disappointing close to a dominant band in rock music. It’s hard to know when the music’s truly over, but the way lead singer and resident lunatic Jim Morrison finished the show at The Warehouse, in New Orleans, left little doubt in the rest of the band's minds that the end was here. Nothing in life lasts forever, and no one here gets out alive.
When looking for bands to sum up not the spirit, but the reality of the sixties, you need look no further than The Doors. They quite literally were the hottest band in the land; psychedelic rockers fronted by a dark poet who railed at the world from his pulpit. Jim Morrison didn’t sing to his audience, he preached sermons of indecipherable meanings with lyrical wordplay and a raw passion that kept listeners spellbound.
