Remembering The Poet

Rest in Peace
James Douglas Morrison
December 8, 1943 – July 3, 1971

Ray Manzarek of The Doors has said many times in interviews over the years that Jim Morrison would want to be remembered first and foremost as a poet. So with today being the 40th anniversary of Jim Morrison's passing I post The American Night, which from what I have read appeared on the original version of An American Prayer in 1978 but was not part of the remastered version that came out in 1995.

Not only a great poet, Jim Morrison was a tremendous singer, a genius, a fantastic songwriter and sadly a tortured soul. He has not been duplicated and never will be.
