Wow, I lived in Florida until I was 14 and never once encountered a house with a basement.

Jim probably built it himself. The ground had a hard layer, but he broke on through to the other side.

If I was to go to the open house, I would go to the room where his sister lived, then pay a visit to his brother and then walk on down the hall.

/the end.

North Florida is a whole different world. Red clay, hills, 4 seasons, good tasting water
. The parking garage in downtown Tallahassee is stories into the ground

Yeah, Can't Get No Satisfaction without a basement.

Last year I went saw Morrison's grave in Paris. Was surprised that so many people were at his gravesite. Very tough site to find.

didn't think it was hard at all but that was 20 years ago.There a lot more deserving sites in that cemetery than Jim Morrison's grave though.

It's where they used to bury the indians.

It's easy - just follow the stench of patchouli

Valid point, but while Pensacola is in Northern FL it's still right on the water. I was stationed at Eglin just down the road in Ft. Walton and I don't recall seeing any house that had a basement. So I would agree it's a rare find down there, particularly that close to the water.

Doors thread? Count me in.

Comin' outta the Maine swamps cool and slow with a backbeat narrow and hard to master.

//yeah, I took liberties, so?

Jim Morrison was conceived in the home, never lived there.

/submitted from my basement in Pensacola, two blocks off of the water.

Jim Morrison links are mighty tasty.

It was just one of his boyhood homes. His father was in the Navy, so they moved around a bit.

Rumpertumpskin: Back door? Man!


Probably. His father was a Rear Admiral.

So this is where Jim's Mom rode the snake, the ancient snake.

Never understood all the hype over the guy. Had my share of Doors albums. Listened to them enough. Never observed any flashes of amazing insight or eternal truths.

I am the lizard King.
I can do anything...


Big deal.

HAMMERTOE: Never observed any flashes of amazing insight or eternal truths.



I think Jim wrote a good chunk of crap lyrics, a larger chunk of cool lyrics, and a smattering of increidbly sublime lyrics.  much like any rock star.

i remember going to Barney's Beanery once and sitting at the bar thinking, this is where the old boy used to spend some time.

/there's a TFer whose name i've forgotten that claims to have partied with Jim towards the end.

Also like many rock stars, he was partly a visual act. Watch "Live at the Hollywood Bowl". Plus I think HAMMERTOE was just trolling.
