Jim Morrison Net Worth $15 Million Dollars

Jim Morrison Net Worth: Jim Morrison was an American rock vocalist, poet and songwriter who had a net worth of $15 million dollars. He was born to George Stephen Morrison and Clara Clarke Morrison, on December 8, 1943 in Melbourne, Florida. His dad proved to be a naval aviator and reached status of Real Admiral. Jim Morrison was an intelligent and sharp child. At the age of five, he experienced a horrifying scene when he saw some dead bodies of some travelers in the New Mexico Desert. It made a life-lasting impression on his mind. He was trained at UCLA. Morrisson, who had been the group’s lead singer and songwriter, was known for his drinking and hideous behaviour on stage. Using the Doors, he saw the release of 5 studio albums, The Doors, Strange Days, Waiting For The Sun, The Soft Parade and Morrison Hotel. It was in 1966 when Elekra Records signed the Doors and it launched its first record in 1967. The single “Light My Fire” took the Doors to No. 1 in the position of rock and roll music. Morrison left his band in 1970 and went to Paris where he began composing poetry. Morrison’s long-term companion was Pamela Courson, who was also named a sole heir to his properties in the will that he left after his passing. At the age of 27 on July 3, 1971 Morrison was found dead in a bathtub. The cause of death was apparently regarded as a heart failure. Nevertheless, his death remains a mystery to date as some theories maintain that he was overdosed with heroin.

Interesting Facts

#Fact
1Grew up in Albuquerque, New Mexico and went to nearby Sandia high school before moving.
2Died at 27 years old, making him a member of the "27 Club"; The 27 Club is a group of prominent musicians that died at the age of 27. Other members include Rolling Stones co-founder Brian Jones, guitarist Jimi Hendrix, singer Janis Joplin, Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain and singer Amy Winehouse.
3His birthday (December 8) is also the anniversary of the death of Beatle John Lennon.
4He and the Doors were awarded a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for Recording at 6901 Hollywood Boulevard in Hollywood, California.
5His Georgia-born father, George Morrison (January 7, 1919 - November 17, 2008) was a Navy rear admiral who once earned distinction as becoming the youngest admiral in the Navy. He also served as operations officer aboard the aircraft carrier Midway and commanded the fleet during the 1964 Gulf of Tonkin incident which contributed to the escalation of American involvement in Vietnam. A graduate of the United States Naval Academy, George was aboard the mine-layer Pruitt in Pearl Harbor when it was bombed by the Japanese on December 7, 1941. Though he and Jim were largely estranged, he admitted that he viewed Jim's success with pride a year before his son's death in 1971.
6Recorded six studio albums with the Doors, though there have been countless posthumous releases.
7Contrary to popular belief, the Doors did not disband when Morrison died. The surviving members released two additional studio albums, "Other Voices" and "Full Circle".
8Originally intended to become a film director.
9Was an avid fan of Filmmakers Josef von Sternberg and Jean Renoir.
10He was of English, with some Scottish and German, as well as distant Dutch, ancestry.
11Born in Florida, he grew up in Virginia, New Mexico, and California.
12Ranked #7 on VH1's 100 Sexiest Artists.
13Early in the Doors' career, he proposed a group policy in which all band decisions would be either unanimously agreed upon or discarded, and that each member of the band would have veto power. The others approved his suggestion, and the policy remains in effect to this day, as all Doors-related releases, projects and decisions must have the okay of all three surviving Doors.
14Before The Doors made their first album, Jim wanted to use a stage name: "James Phoenix." Keyboardist Ray Manzarek told him, "No way.".
15Attended Florida State University before moving to California.
16Is portrayed by Aaron Grain in The Linda McCartney Story (2000).
17While on stage he had an outlandish and charismatic persona, offstage he was a very quiet and shy person. In fact, according to Ray Manzarek, Morrison once told him he never really felt comfortable at a party unless Ray or another member of the band were with him.
18Longtime girlfriend Pamela Courson died of a heroin overdose in 1974.
19Is portrayed by Val Kilmer in Oliver Stone's biopic The Doors (1991). Not only did Kilmer look a lot like Morrison, he did his own singing in the film, and The Doors surviving band members reportedly were so impressed by Kilmer's vocal similarities to Morrison's that they could not distinguish Kilmer's singing voice from Morrison's singing voice (close-up shots use Kilmer's voice, while long-distance shots use Morrison's).
20Died two years to the day of the death of The Rolling Stones co-founder Brian Jones.
21Reportedly had an I.Q. of 149.
22During 1965-1966, before The Doors were established, Morrison, camping out on Venice rooftops, would peep on girls changing in neighboring apartments, recording everything he witnessed in notebooks (one of which survives).
23The Doors were voted the 41st Greatest Artists in Rock 'n' Roll by Rolling Stone.
24Is the only performer in rock history to have been arrested on stage during a performance (in New Haven, Connecticut, Dec. 10, 1967).
25His nickname, "Mr. Mojo Risin'", is an anagram for Jim Morrison.
26In 1966, before signing a record contract with Elektra, he told the band that he would fake his death to increase their notoriety. After Morrison's death in 1971, album sales skyrocketed.
27In 1971, while living in Paris, he quit drinking, shaved his thick beard and lost a great deal of weight, beginning a clean and sober new life. However, reports at the time of death continue to depict him as bloated. Some attribute this to congestive heart failure.
28Was a highly skilled swimmer.
29Girlfriend, Pamela Courson opened a boutique financed by Jim called Themis (Goddess of light and beauty).
30Was inspired by writings of Friedrich Nietzsche, Norman Mailer and Arthur Rimbaud, among others.
31Favorite singer was Frank Sinatra.
32After defying Ed Sullivan and using the lyric "Girl, we couldn't get much higher" while performing "Light My Fire" he and The Doors were never invited back to perform on Ed Sullivan' iconic Sunday night variety show.
33Needed special permission to appear at the Isle of Wight festival in England due to the fact that he was still on trial for his indecent exposure arrest the previous year.
34Refused to appear at Woodstock because he was paranoid that someone would take a shot at him as he performed onstage.
35Elected to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (as a member of The Doors) in 1993.
36Morrison's grave in Paris, France, is reportedly the city's 4th most popular attraction after the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame and the Louvre.
37In 1970, shortly after the deaths of Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix, he reportedly told friends at a bar "You're drinking with number three."
38Once wed to Patricia Kennely by a Pagan ritual called handfasting. The marriage was never legally recognized, but Patricia did change her last name to "Morrison"
39Lived most of his infamous career in a cheap hotel on La Cienega Boulevard in Los Angeles, California.
40Had long term relationship with Pamela Courson, but never married.
41Buried at Pere Lachaise Cemetery, Paris, France.
42Born at 11:55am-EWT

Quotes

#Quote
1[on what it took to gain entrance to his circle] You gotta get smashed and make a fool of yourself in a public place. You gotta get eighty-sixed from seven nightclubs. That's the Irish thing. I hang around mostly with the Irish - and the Italians.
2This is the strangest life I've ever known.
3Erotic politicians, that's what we are. We're interested in everything about revolt, disorder, and all activity that appears to have no meaning.
4I think of myself as an intelligent, sensitive human being with the soul of a clown which always forces me to blow it at the most crucial moments.
5A friend is someone who gives you the complete freedom to be yourself.
6Music is a pure expression of joy.
7I've always been attracted to ideas that were about revolt against authority. When you make peace with authority, you become an authority.
8[Dinner Key Auditorium, 3/1/69, the infamous concert where he allegedly exposed himself] We are not talking about no revolution! I'm not talking about no demonstration! I'm talking about having some fun! I'm talking about dancing! I'm talking about love your neighbor 'til it hurts! I'm talking about love! [...] This is your show, anything you want goes!
9[Los Angeles, 1969] Let's just say I was testing the bounds of reality. I was curious to see what would happen. That's all it was: just curiosity.
