I was reading this, and almost couldn't believe it. However, it was actually on the news... so I don't know whether to believe it or not. I love his band, The Doors, so it would be great if he honestly wasn't dead.

Here is the article:

Jim Morrison lives, TV show reports

May 20, 2005

How weird is this? Today's "A Current Affair" (6:30 p.m., WJBK-TV, Channel 2) airs video that allegedly shows Jim Morrison of the Doors is very much alive -- despite his reported 1971 demise -- and living in cowboy country in the Pacific Northwest. (Coincidentally, tickets for the Doors of the 21st Century show -- presumably without a very special added guest -- June 26 at DTE Energy Music Theatre went on sale today!)

Says filmmaker Gerald Pitts: "In 1998, Jim Morrison had showed up at our rodeos, here in southern Oregon, and we discovered him living on a ranch, raising show-quality Arabian horses and paint horses. And I shot some footage of my friend." Pitts says he offered Morrison a contract to act in one of his movies.

Banging the drum for the video is Cherri Woods, who owns the Hollywood apartment building where Morrison last lived.

Woods told the TV show: "I was given Jim's telephone number and address and the alias that the FBI gave him that he's been living under. I have all of the information. Pages and pages of notes, of information I have verified that has shown me that this" the video "in fact is Jim Morrison."

Pitts, however, says his real evidence is in a photo -- one that doesn't much look like Jim Morrison. Pitts says: "I did a Mylar match print of Jim Morrison over the picture that I took of him 30 years later ... you'll notice I lined up the pupils ... the jaw line and his nose has a little jag to the right ... that matches the one before 1971 perfectly." At least, it didn't match up with Elvis.


What do you all think?

I would love to be able to attend that Concert... with the "special guest". I would ***** my pants (not really). I mean, Jim was the MAN!

First of all, he's dead as a doornail underneath the topsoil of Paris. Second of all, an ego like his could never lay low for all these years. Thirdly of all, when your mama says you can drown in a bathtub, you better believe her. Fourthly of all, HE AIN'T ELVIS !!

Hasn't it struck anyone else as oddly coincidental that he shows up the same time the tickets went on sale? Sounds like free publicity to sell a show to me.
