This disorder may exist. But people, who eats cocaine instead of food and drink whiskey instead of water must be sons of rich daddies, not professionals. They can't develop their abilities. And such lifestyle make them ugly - absolutely ugly. The people (especially women) who are real alcoholics or addicts has a very bad appearence. They maybe young but they have faces of old people. Nobody could tell such thing about Morrison.

Can you blame me? It's a very fine vintage and I like the name.

That's what I've been saying for years. In your case it's clearly taken some time to sink in but better late than never I suppose.

Re: Was Jim Morrison burned out at the time of his death?

I think that the Doors would have had about two, maybe three more high quality albums to go. However, I don't know if they'd conform to the times, and start doing what popular bands were doing, but I doubt they would. I don't know that they would have had any more hits or anything, but I think they would have still had very good albums. I think they were probably too devoted to the music style they had for so long, I mean, they were still doing psychedelia in the 1970's.

He died accidently, and hence he may have many great albums.

I don't know if I agree with you there. The only straight psychadelic song on LA Woman was L'America, which was a leftover from a film soundtrack as far as I recall. The rest of the tracks have a much more organic style, substituting slick keys for the usual electronic keyboards, and there are a bunch of straight-up blues or blues-rock songs. The way I see it, if The Doors carried on in this fashion, they would have coincided with the popularity of heavy blues-rock in the early 70s with bands like Led Zeppelin, Rory Gallagher, Aerosmith Ten Years After, and Johnny Winter. They'd be a bit different but I think The Doors could have flourished in that area with music similar to LA Woman.

I agree. Both "Morrison Hotel and "L.A. Woman" were much bluesier than the Doors previous four albums and I wouldn't lump these last two albums by the Doors under the psychedelic label. The Doors actually needed a change in direction after "Soft Parade" because that album seemed "tired" somehow as if they'd exhausted their psychedelic repertoire.

In fact, "Morrison Hotel" and "L.A. Woman" actually resemble the albums the Doors released after Jim Morrison's death more than they do the Doors first four albums.

Unbelievable the names on the list. Not only great writers and poets and artists but U.S. presidents!

Re: Was Jim Morrison burned out at the time of his death?

Last I checked, Riders On The Storm was off of L.A. Woman. A very psychedelic tune as I might recall. And Psychedelia was over by about 2 year by that time. So yeah, there's only a couple of psychedelic tunes off of their last album, but that's still two way out of their time period. I don't know if they would have rolled with the times very well at all. Considering that Blues-Rock type stuff wasn't very big in the 70's either.

If Jim Morrison wasn't burned out at the time of his death, he will certainly be burned out by the time people get through discussing his death!

Without being there, no one knows for sure, but I would suspect that L.A. Woman was more the other three doing the bulk of the decision making, and just trying to get Jim to lay down the vocals.

I really think the big if, is not wether Jim had more in him, but what if he had got an early handle on his self destructive behavior.
I agree, Morrison was a full fledged alcoholic and if he'd straightened himself out and got into some kind of shape he would've still had years of great work in him. But it was the booze and drugs that did him in. Made him old before his time and killed him.

Re: Was Jim Morrison burned out at the time of his death?

Certainly a question worth revisiting. Was Jim Morrison burned out at the time of his death?
