Is Jim Morrison Alive?
image Most people think the musician Jim Morrison, lead singer for the Doors, died in Paris on July 3, 1971. But Gerald Pitts says that he "discovered Jim Morrison Living on a Ranch in the Pacific Northwest in the summer of 1998." According to him, Morrison is living a quiet life as an American cowboy "away from the Hollywood scene." Even though Morrison evidently engineered an elaborate death hoax to escape publicity, he agreed to appear on film for Pitts. You can buy a copy of this film for only $24.95 (shipping is extra). Pitts' site includes a video comparing the features of Jim Morrison the fifty-something cowboy to Jim Morrison the twenty-something singer. However, no matter how many times I watch the video, I just don't see any similarity.

No eternal reward will forgive us now for wasting the time on this fake!,
Also try this, get the song Unhappy Girl, and play it backward, i've heard of backmasking songs, but this is the king of backmasking, "love people join us in sympathy, i love it"
peace out!

question
Regardless if Jim is alive or not, he stopped making songs and writing in 1971 so he died in the public eyes. I don't know if I am convinced if this is Jim or not, but there are some very interesting similarities, the chin, the position of the eyes, the indentations on the sides of his face, and his voice. The nose appears to be swollen on the end from either old age or alcohol. The facial changes could be caused by plastic surgery. Also the missing mole on the left side of his nose could have been removed. It is possible. Acording to Gerald Pitts, Jim staged his death because of a French conspiracy to kill him, Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix with narcotics because they were all Vietnam war protestors. The FBI helped him disappear. I know the FBI have the capabilities to alter ones physical appearance. I am not saying this is or is not Jim. As a Doors fan, i am hoping it is Jim but even if it is, do you really think he is going to rejoin the Doors and tour------NOT, so in the public eye he is dead.

At the time of Jim's ill-fated trip to Paris, I believe I read in No One Gets Out of Here Alive, he had about or over 20 paternity suits hanging over his head - where are these people now? Regardless of whether he fathered each and every one of them or some or most of them were fake claims, it is odd, that not another word was ever heard about them, at least to my knowledge they were never heard from. Can anyone out there enlighten me?

I say "dig his casket up"! The French want his gravesite changed because of all the CRAP left at Jim's gravesite. Jim's dead French neighbors have been complaining for years! 150 lbs of brick or sand? My bet, brick.................

I just can't se how Jim Morrison could have faked his death for over thirty years and gotten away with it. It's completely ludicriss. I really question the credibility pf this freak. Seems to me he's either a Doors fan or was at one time and decided one day at his rodeo to find the (not so) closest looking guy who looked like Jim Morrison and was convinced. PEOPLE CAN'T WE SEE. Obviously the o'l rodeo ain't doin so good these days so this sick puppy decides to make his money however he can. I say let Jim's music live forever. But please for the love of god let the guy Rest in Peace.

From doing a report on Jim, He really didn't like the idea of having a band, He just wanted people to hear his poetry, not to make money.I think we should do a sonar to see if their is a skeleton or bricks. If it's bricks or sands, we have a handfull of explaining don't we wink?
Course, if they did find out we would probably never know, but words sneek out, like Area 51 wink haha.. I am a Doors Fan, I would like to meet Jim (if he's alive).It would be stupid to go back on tour, since the French don't even like him when he's even dead, or is he a live....?
Later

Yeah, the dude's (the promoter) got a page that shows documents signed by the supposed J.M. in '98 and '99 - compare the signatures on his docs to known signatures of the real J.M. (available all over the web).

sigs might change but basic approaches to penmanship style pretty well lock-in after 20 or 30 years (he was 27 when he supposedly died), check it out.

another thing, morrison was a follower of nitchze, into anarchy and anti-authoritarian themes, so what's he doing hangin with a bunch of 'law and order' republican cowboys raising horses and doing rodeos?

since morrison has living relatives, a dna test isn't out of the question either.

Jim Morrison also told the story many times of having felt the spirit of an old Native American enter his body when he was about eight years old. Many of his lyrics include Native American references.

It's also common knowledge that JM participated in many Native American rituals (including the drugs ofcourse), protested against violence, guns and Vietnam as well.

A cowboy? I think not.

Good catch on the sig compare. I did that one too. Did some address finagling too.

That 2491 Biehn St. address is less than 1/2 a mile from our house up there. Howzabout that? Whatcha think we're gonna have a look at when we're up there next weekend? wink It's not a ranch in the middle of town, I can tell you that. But it's also not a post office or one of those quickie mail deals either. We'll have a look and let you all know.

Also found some info on the ranch that he's linked to. Prospect OR is what I found after minimal digging. Name? Address? Phone? Yahtzee!

West M Rodeo' S

51 Mill Creek Dr
Prospect, OR 975369728

There's tons more, but I've gotta eat sometime tonight, so I'll be back later.

I can not beleive anyone cares about Jim morrison, sure I liked his music and poetry. he was, key word was, an inteligent man. But in the end he became an *** hole drunk who pisses his pants at the local bars. Ahhh The sixties, not SUCH A great of a time for America if you stop and think about it.
Posted by Scott  on  Mon Jun 06, 2005  at  04:05 PM
surprised You are absolutely right that man is not THE James Doulglas Morrison we all have come to know and love. Besides that..all you have to do is make the man sing and the gig is up. No one can sound like the Lizard King himself. So let us have this *Jim* sing for us and Ill bet you that he isnt our Jim. As much as we all would love to see that Jim is alive and well the truth is his life was painful yet pleasurable and Jim fancied death. We will continue to mourn the loss of such a brilliant poet.

omg wat is wrong with you people WASTING 24.95 + shipping for a fake jim morrison tape
Posted by Danny  in  Michigan  on  Mon Jun 27, 2005  at  03:19 PM
I think most of you people who posted here are fairly intelligent in knowing that jim morrison is no longer among the living. when i say "jim morrison" i mean the vocalist, songwriter etc since there could be many people with the name jim morrison. in any case, this whole idea that he could be alive is pure physcology. its like most of you mentioned, peoples enthusiasm to see elvis parsly again or marilyn monroe etc overcomes them with wanting to see magic bullshit ( sigh ) The other day at the mall i swear i saw a guy who looked just like my grand-father but i dont see anyone freaking out and ordering videos of him for $24 lol. keep safe all and try not to get conned to often.
