Fenomenul Jim Morrison


Am revazut filmul „The Doors”, din 1991, cu Val Kilmer si Meg Ryan, in regia lui Oliver Stone

Mi-au ramas intiparite in minte cateva fraze

El, intr-un interviu – Ce ma intereseaza este o tulburare a simturilor, pentru a patrunde dincolo. Eu traiesc in subconstient, pentru ca ratiunea iti da o palida cunoastere a lumii, adevarata existenta ne este ascunsa.


Drogul si alcoolul il ajutau in sensul asta.

O alta chestie spusa de el: Rockul inseamna moarte.

 Tu esti poet, nu rocker – ii spune Pam, iubita lui permanenta si inselata

Alta: Ei (publicul) nu ma vor pe mine, ci moartea mea.

Repeta : Sclavilor! Sunteti niste sclavi imputiti.

Sau: Adolescentele vor penisul meu, nu versurile mele.

Sau: Te-am mintit (Pamelei), imi place celebritatea.

Pe scena urla, dansa ca in transa in stilul indienilor, era vesnic beat sau drogat, dar transmitea prin versuri si atitudine ceva real, ceva profund si profund disperat despre viata si moarte.

Avea viziuni cu indieni care pareau simboluri ale mortii sale.

Era mereu agresat de politisti, de patroni, producatori pentru obscenitate; in perioada in care s-a sinucis avea chiar un proces pentru asta, in urma caruia a fost condamnat la 6 luni de munca silnica.

Ce le striga: Noi suntem cei ce vom veni, voi sunteti morti. Voi aveti armele, noi avem concertele.

Dupa proces a fost interzis ( FBI sta cu ochii pe el, spune in film): concerte, albume, de aceea a plecat la Paris; nu va fi lasat sa participe la Woodstock.

A murit in 1971 la Paris; i-a cedat inima.Iubita solistului, Pamela Courson, a murit si ea in 1974, tot din cauza abuzului de stupefiante. Avea 27 de ani


Scria versuri fenomenale

Alte info de pe net –

In 1962,  he transferred to Florida State University where he appeared in a school recruitment film.

In January 1964, Morrison moved to Los Angeles, California. He completed his undergraduate degree in UCLA’s film school, the Theater Arts department of the College of Fine Arts in 1965. Jim made two films while attending UCLA. „First Love”, the first of the two films, was released to the public when it appeared in a documentary about the film called „Obscura”.

 He led a bohemian lifestyle in California, attending UCLA, drifting about and sleeping on couches and rooftops, reading books voraciously.

scria versuri sub influenta lui Rimbaud si Blake; Jim devoured symbolist literature: Rimbaud, Baudelaire, Verlaine;

Denumirea grupului provine de la  un vers celebru al lui William Blake, „I have left open the doors of perception”(The name The Doors came from an Aldous Huxley book, The Doors of Perception, in turn borrowed from a line of poetry by William Blake), “When the doors of perception are cleansed/ Things will appear as they are, Infinite”. )

 Jim era văzut de fanii săi ca un fel de zeu sau lider spiritual; ca urmare şi-a luat numele de „Lizard King” (regele sopârlă);

His US Navy admiral father dictated a future his son didn’t want.

 His other stimulation of a non-sexual nature was rhythm and blues music, still a very black art form;

After graduating UCLA, Morrison read some poems to fellow student, Ray Manzarek and they both decided on the spot to start a rock band. To complete the band, two more members, Robbie Krieger and John Densmore joined the group.Morrison, Manzarek, Robbie Krieger (guitars) and John Densmore on drums took the language of rhythm and blues and meshed it with psychedelia and cabaret; He developed a unique singing voice and a style of poetry leaning heavily on mysticism.


Morrison in reality however was drawn to music only in its ability to extend his poetic license further.

His poetry compilations are available in volumes like ‘The Lords’, ‘The New Creatures’ and ‘The Celebration of the Lizard’; But then Morrison did often find his inspiration at the bottom of a whiskey glass;

He died in his bath of a heart-attack, brought on by drugs and drink; Jim Morrison was 27, the same age as Jimi Hendrix was when he died. Kurt Cobain, Janis Joplin and Rolling Stones creative pillar Brian Jones died at that age too;

Many fans and biographers have speculated that the cause of death was a drug overdose, or possibly an assassination by American government authorities. Morrison remarked several times near his death that he was “number 3″. Referring to himself as likely to be the third person to die mysteriously; Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin being the first two. The official report listed “heart attack” as the cause of death

 Pe placa de marmura ce a inlocuit bustul sau, furat acum 11 ani, sta scris doar atat: „James Douglas Morrison, 1943-1971, Artiste, Poete, Compositeur”. Alaturi, mana unui admirator necunoscut a adaugat, in greaca veche: „Kata ton daimona euaton”, adica „Amintirea unui erou luat de demonul sau.”


 Ganduri ale sale

‘The only thing that interests me is rebellion, disorder, chaos and any senseless activity’ said Morrison.

I see myself as a huge fiery comet, a shooting star. Everyone stops, points up and gasps „Oh look at that!” Then- whoosh, and I’m gone…and they’ll never see anything like it ever again…and they won’t be able to forget me- ever.” – Jim Morrison


We’re like actors, turned loose in this world to wander in search of a phantom, endlessly searching for a half-formed shadow of our lost reality. When others demand that we become the people they want us to be, they force us to destroy the person we really are. It’s a subtle kind of murder. The most loving parents and relatives commit this murder with smiles on their faces.” – Jim Morrison

I think the highest and lowest points are the important ones. Anything else is just…in between. I want the freedom to try everything.” – Jim Morrison

Expose yourself to your deepest fear; after that, fear has no power, and the fear of freedom shrinks and vanishes. You are free.” – Jim Morrison

A friend is someone who lets you have total freedom to be yourself.” – Jim Morrison

„If my poetry aims to achieve anything, it’s to deliver people from the limited ways in which they see and feel” – Jim Morrison

„This is the strangest life I’ve ever known” – Jim Morrison

„I am the Lizard King. I can do anything.” – Jim Morrison

„…each day is a drive thru history…” – Jim Morrison

  • „I think of myself as an intelligent, sensitive human being with the soul of a clown, which always forces me to blow it at the most important moments.”
  • „I think I was just fed up with the image that had been created around me, which I sometimes consciously, most of the time unconsciously cooperated with. It just got too much for me to really stomach and so I put an end to it one glorious evening.”
  • „The most important kind of freedom is to be what you really are. You trade in your reality for a role. You trade in your sense for an act. You give up your ability to feel, and in exchange, put on a mask. There can’t be any large-scale revolution until there’s a personal revolution, on an individual level. It’s got to happen inside first.”

    The future is uncertain and the end is always near” – Jim Morrison

    According to Jim Morrison the most important event of his life came in 1947 during a family trip in New Mexico. He described the event as follows:

    The first time I discovered death… me and my mother and father, and my grandmother and grandfather, were driving through the desert at dawn. A truckload of Indians had either hit another car or something- there were Indians scattered all over the highway, bleeding to death. I was just a kid, so I had to stay in the car while my father and grandfather went to check it out. I didn’t see nothing- all I saw was funny red paint and people lying around, but I knew something was happening, because I could dig the vibrations of the people around me, and all of a sudden I realized that they didn’t know what was happening any more than I did. That was the first time I tasted fear… and I do think, at that moment, the souls of those dead Indians- maybe one or two of them-were just running around, freaking out, and just landed in my soul, and I was like a sponge, ready to sit there and absorb it.
