“I see myself as a huge fiery comet, a shooting star. Everyone stops, points up and gasps “Oh look at that!” Then whoosh, and I’m gone…and they’ll never see anything like it ever again and they won’t be able to forget me, ever.” - James Douglas Morrison: 12/8/1943 - 7/3/1971
Jim Morrison, inspired by the writings of philosophers and poets, is one of the most poetic artists in music history. His lyrics, infused with spiritual and metaphysical knowledge, still captivate today.
He was passionate about his writing, but when it came to style, he approached it with a certain nonchalance. With his trademark tight low-rise leather pants, he reinvented the whole rock star “look” without even trying. He kept his style natural, laid back, and stayed true to his bohemian Venice Beach roots. It was a look that only a true rock star could pull off.
