ROCK ICON JIM MOR­RI­SON BORN

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - METRO -

BORN in Mel­bourne, Flor­ida, on this day in 1943, James Dou­glas “Jim” Mor­ri­son was an Amer­i­can singer, song­writer, and poet, and lead vo­cal­ist of the rock band The Doors. Due to his dis­tinc­tive voice, wild per­son­al­ity and early death, Mor­ri­son is re­garded by many as one of the most iconic front­men in rock mu­sic his­tory. Mor­ri­son had an al­co­hol ad­dic­tion. His lover found his body on July 3, 1971, in their Paris apart­ment. He was 27.
