THE DOORS Legend JIM MORRISON Passes Away, This Week In Music History; Video

On July 3, 1971 Jim Morrison was found dead in a bathtub at the age of 27. Watch the video below from AXS TV, as The Doors members Robby Krieger and John Densmore discuss Jim's unique ability to connect with fans through his music.

Professor Of Rock recently released the video below, along with the following introduction...

"Up next, one of rock’s most mesmerizing frontmen, Jim Morrison, was playing one of The Doors's new songs, 'The End', as the house band for one of California’s most happening clubs... when Jim suddenly went off on a creative tangent that hearkened back to a story from Greek mythology. But the audience had no idea what was going on… Jim Morrison took a song that was already about death, birth, freedom, sex, murder, madness, and whatever else you can think of and put some relish on it. He screamed out a profanity-laced desire that would shock every generation thereafter who would hear the story or the song. And that’s not all. There are some insane stories that go with this epic 12-minute song… including how Morrison was fired for performing it and how he got buck-naked and hosed down a recording studio with a fire extinguisher. And there’s plenty more where that came from. It’s all coming up, next on the Professor Of Rock."
