On This Day: July 3, 1971
James Douglas “Jim” Morrison (December 8, 1943 – July 3, 1971) was an American lead singer and lyricist of the rock band The Doors, as well as a poet.
Jim Morrison would often improvise poem passages while the band played live, which was his trademark. He was ranked number 47 on Rolling Stone’s “100 Greatest Singers of All Time” and is widely regarded, with his wild personality and performances, as one of the most iconic, charismatic and pioneering frontmen in rock music history.
