The Death of Jim Morrison

Yesterday I was listening to a radio interview with Ray Manzarek and Rick Manzarek of the Doors. They talked about the political impact of their music and life-style. They went on to claim that they believe Jim Morrison was murdered by agents of the US government. They said that within a short period Jimmy Hendrix (18 September, 1970), Janis Joplin (October 4, 1970) and (Jim Morrison 3 July, 1971) were all murdered and it was made to look like they had died of a drug overdose. They also connected it with the murders of JFK, RFK and MLK. Has anyone else heard this story?

By the time Jimbo died, overweight, depressed and with a hugh heroin monkey on his back, he was pretty much a spent force. Both Joplin, and Jimi were apolitical, despite recent attempts to dress them up in more radical cloths. But, like Lennon, some people cannot accept the tawdry, un-heroic truths of their deaths. Sad but true i'm afraid.

These 'murders' were reportedly commited as part of operation chaos, a war on the emerging counter culture.

The best account of the deaths involving rock stars comes from Alex Constantine's book on the subject. I can't recall the name of the book at the moment as I left my copy of it in the U.S.

John Judge and Mae Brussell have also done work in this field. I suggest that you google Mae Brussell, that will bring you to an archive of her work which has many references to operation chaos and the deaths mentioned above.

re Jimi: I doubt one could find a more (non-vocal) powerful political performance than Jimi's rendition of the star spangled banner at Woodstock. He usually ended his performances with the peace sign. He was into MLK's non-violence and desegregation.

Janice was born into segregated Texas and stood out in her rejection of what was expected of her by persuing a desegregated lifestyle/music milieu.

One thing we can be certain of is that these deaths had a very negative impact on counter-culture. If the "intelligence" services had been told to damage the counter-culture, drug-related deaths of major stars was the kind of thing they would have come up with.

Hi to all,i'm a big fan of The Doors & Morrison,over the last few years i've built up email friendships with his friends & people in the know.Its an open secret that Jim Morrison died of a Heroin overdose.One cover up connected to this is that a Famous Count & close friend of M Faithfull(excuse spelling)supplied the drug,Faithfull denies being in Paris at the time of Jim's death however various people have placed her there & the story goes that the Count knowing he supplied the drug made off ASAP with her.

Hope this may help,Apologies for the rushed post,at work.

Kind Regards Jim.
