Jim Morrison transcended the role of the ‘rockstar bad boy’. While he was erratic, dramatic and heavily reliant on drugs and alcohol, Morrison was also a compassionate poet and one of the most iconic figureheads of the counterculture movement of the second half of the 20th Century.

Morrison fronted the psychedelic blues-rock band The Doors, who formed in Venice, California, in 1965. He was well loved for the beautiful spoken word poetry he recited while the rest of the band, Ray Manzarek, Robby Krieger and John Densmore, went off into long improvised jams when they played live.

Given Morrison’s penchant for nefarious and erratic behaviour, Morrison had many brushes with the law during his short 27 years on earth. Today, we’re going to run through a history of the legendary poet and singer’s arrests.
