The Doors Throw A Party for Jim Morrison 65th

The Doors Throw A Party for Jim Morrison 65th

by Paul Cashmere - November 19 2008

So Jim Morrison is about to turn 65. That is retirement age in Australia and a few years past retirement in the USA. Jim isn`t retiring just yet. He is making too much money to slow down. Not bad for a dead guy.

On December 8, Ray Manzarek and Robbie Kreiger will be at Barney’s Beanery for the Morrison party.

So will Jim Ladd. Ladd will broadcast his KLOS night show from the party.

Barney’s Beanery was special for Jim. He used to hang out there in the 60s with Janis Joplin.

“We decided to celebrate this occasion because Barney’s is a place where Jim Morrison hung out often,” says Barney’s Beanery principal David Houston, who bought the place in 1999 from Erwin Held “Whatever point in time you go back to, whoever was making history in pop culture, they seemed to have a foot in the Beanery.”

As well as Jim’s 65th, there is a new Doors album. ‘Live at The Matrix 1967’ is the 4th album in the Bright Midnight archives. It features liner notes from all three surviving members of The Doors.
