The Doors Robby Krieger talks about Florida pardoning Jim Morrison, and how the late singer never did "Whip It Out"
This tribute originally had the song "Love Street", until I had to audioswap it when it was muted. A tribute to the relationship of Pamela Courson and Jim Morrison. While I am a fan of the great Jim Morrison, this particular tribute is more dedicated to Pam though it is meant for the both of them. She was born December 22nd 1946 in Weed, California and died from a heroin overdose at the age of 27 3 years after Jim Morrison passed away on April 25th, 1974. He died July 3rd 1971 also at the age of 27. His official cause of death was listed as a heart attack. Pamela was the one to find him. One biography states that she and Morrison met at a nightclub called The London Fog on the Sunset Strip in 1965, while Courson was an art student at Los Angeles City College. In his 1998 memoir, "Light My Fire: My Life with the Doors", former keyboardist Ray Manzarek stated that Courson and a friend saw the band during their stint at the London Fog, a lesser-known nightclub. Courson's relationship with Morrison was tumultuous, with repeated sexual excursions by both partners. Courson briefly operated Themis, a fashion boutique that Morrison bought for her. Her death certificate lists her occupation as "women's apparel." She was portrayed in Oliver Stone's 1991 movie "The Doors" by Meg Ryan. I chose this song because it is said to have been written about Pam. I had to replace the song with a Plain White T's song called "Hey There Delilah" because it was the next best thing that fit
Jim Morrison was posthumously pardoned Thursday for a 1969 indecent exposure conviction in Florida, a move a woman who said she was married to The Doors lead singer called a cheap political ploy.
In honor of both Jim Morrison's physical birthday, December 8th, and his "spiritual birthday, July 3rd," Meowma produced this radio show in association with American Radio Network, for Kaleidoscope Radio Magazine. Curiously, another of Meowma's self-professed influences, John Lennon, died on Jim Morrison's birthday, December 8th. Whoa. But as Meowma explains, "Birth and death are naturally, inherently related, as two sides of a token. Or, they're the same process. Being born into this world, we're kind of dying from the spiritual world. And dying from this physical world, we're born back into the spiritual world. So birth and death are really the same thing, but it is said that it's ten times easier to be born into the spiritual world than it is to be born into the physical. Seems natural, since the spiritual world precedes the physical world, huh?" Whoa. Or, perhaps, we should say...word. At any rate, Meowma dedicates this radio show to both Jim Morrison and America. Happy birthday, Jim.
