Jim Morrison was born in 1943 and was one of the more outrageous performers well known for his drinking and drugs. Unfortunately this amazing talent also became a member of the 27 club, dying of heart failure in Paris.
The Doors took their name from Aldous Huxley's book Doors of Perception after he apparently lived on beans and LSD for months.
While there were many hits, Light My Fire reached number 1 on the billboard charts in 1967. He was probably one of the most iconoclastic weirdos on our legends list. What a talent!
