    In some ways I reckon Jim Morrison had something in common with Syd Barrett from Pink Floyd! :wtf:

    What was his sex crime? (not saying there wasn't one, just that I don't know of it)

    From Wikipedia:

    What was curious indeed is the police officers at the concert didn't actually witness any indecent exposure. It wasn't until Jim was "tried by the press"
    that politically motivated prosecutors thought to lay charges a few days later.

    :rolleyes:

    Coming from the way they run things here in Florida, I'm not at all surprised they had to trump up charges. This place is mostly older people from the Eisenhower day's.. The anti drug propaganda force..
    If the movie depicts Morrison and how that concert went exactley, Then the cops were dicks and just wanted to cause trouble.. I mean how many newer concerts do you see with cops lined up on stage?? Really odd for them to pull that..:wtf:

    That's why I've long insisted that Florida be turned back over to Spain. Just keep the gators and get rid of the rest of the thing.

    Flower would argue that "Louisiana yard dogs" are much tougher than their cousins from Florida anyway:

    Warhol-NYC period? Please elaborate.

    The only thing I've heard is that Jim Morrison had agreed to be the star of Andy Warhol's first porn movie, "Blue". He was supposed to bring a girl and then screw her for the cameras - but he never showed up. Silly Andy. He should have known that Jim just didn't have the work ethic to be a successful movie star.

    :bonk:
