No one can deny Morrison‘s stage antics, theatrics, or larger-than-life presence. He was definitely a performer, even if some performances were in very bad taste.

I do not dispute this.

I also have said I love the LA Woman album, but his voice & vocals are hit and miss. when it’s bad, it’s really bad.
I agree with you. There really are some bad examples from him, you've posted at least one...

I think you can hear the deterioration of his health through his voice in some instances. It's the same with a lot of artists before they dropped like a rock.

Like I have stated several times, Jim could sing, and sing very well……but when he stinks, I skip those songs.

:cheers2

Touch Me
Like in the movie when they recording Touch Me.. Jim was a total mess.. SHIT faced.. You would think that why not try to do a song a little less drunk. And he was very anti commercial and felt you were selling out to give into TV show jingles..
The end thing is that they only lasted a decade and what a ride that 10 years were for them.

I'm very happy he shoved LIGHT MY FIRE in Ed Sullivan's face..

One of my favorites by The Doors.....great lyrics by Jim.....


Well, the clock says it's time to close now I guess I'd better go now
I'd really like to stay here all night
The cars crawl past all stuffed with eyes
Street lights share their hollow glow
Your brain seems bruised with numb surprise
Still one place to goStill one place to go
Let me sleep all night in your soul kitchen
Warm my mind near your gentle stove
Turn me out and I'll wander baby
Stumblin' in the neon groves
Well, your fingers weave quick minarets
Speak in secret alphabets
I light another cigarette
Learn to forget, learn to forget
Learn to forget, learn to forget
Let me sleep all night in your soul kitchen
Warm my mind near your gentle stove
Turn me out and I'll wander baby
Stumblin' in the neon groves
Well the clock says it's time to close now
I know I have to go now
I really want to stay here
All night, all night, all night
