The Best Jim Morrison quotes

Jim Morrison quotes thumbnail

Jim Morrison was a singer, songwriter and poet who influenced the 1960’s music scene with his band, The Doors. Growing up in Florida, his family moved to California when he was 11 years old. He became interested in poetry after hearing Allen Ginsberg recite Howl at a local coffee house. His father disapproved of this interest and forbid him from reading any more of it.
Jim then went on to study film school where he met Ray Manzarek and Robby Krieger who would eventually help form The Doors – an American rock band that had hits including Light My Fire, Riders On the Storm, Love Her Madly, and many others before they disbanded in 1973 due to Jim’s death.
