How did Jim Morrison die?

1 Answer

  1. Jim Morrison, known as one of the most iconic personalities in the world of rock, was the lead vocalist for the band The Doors. He was recognized through his poetic lyrics and eccentric style and showmanship.

    The Doors gained much fame through the six albums that they released. Morrison was responsible for writing most of the songs that the band released. He was also known to improvise the passages during their onstage performances. Light My Fire was a hit single in the US and co-written by Morrison and bandmate Krieger. The band released two more albums after the star’s death but they did not do so well and the band split up in 1973.

    With his father in the military, Jim moved a lot and completed parts of his education from different schools. He was known to have a love for literature and was said to be greatly influenced by French philosophers. French poet, Arthur Rimbaud was probably his greatest inspiration, and a style similar to his appeared in Morrison’s work as well.

    It was in the summer of 1965 that Jim formed The Doors right after completing his bachelor’s degree. The band got its name from Aldous Huxley’s book, The Doors Of Perception. Morrison did not play many instruments and often came up with the vocal melodies for his lyrics.

    The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer died a very early and mysterious death. During his time with The Doors, Morrison was known to have gotten involved with alcohol and drugs. In March 1971, Morrison moved to Paris with his girlfriend Pamela Courson. According to her account, Jim suffered a heart attack due to heroin overdose. Whether this is true or not is unknown since her account changed several times, (possibly through her involvement with drugs) and an autopsy was never performed.
