Jim Morrison Died At The Age of 27

James Douglas Morrison known as Jim Morrison is an American singer, songwriter, and poet, who served as the lead vocalist of the rock band ‘The Doors’. Due to his wild personality, poetic lyrics, his widely recognized voice, unpredictable and erratic performances, and the dramatic circumstances surrounding his life and early death, Morrison is regarded by music critics and fans as one of the most iconic and influential frontmen in rock history.

Morrison and Ray Manzarek co-founded the Doors during the summer of 1965 in Venice, California. For a brief period in the mid-1960s, the Doors were the house band of the Whisky-a-Go-Go, a much-storied club on the Sunset Strip in Los Angeles. For about the same time, they signed with Electra Records, for which they released hit singles, including “Light My Fire” and “Hello, I Love You”. Morrison was known for improvising spoken word poetry passages while the band played live. He died on July 3, 1971, at the age of 27 in Paris.
