42 years ago, I heard this song for the first time...and when the music was over, the DJ announced that Jim Morrison was reported to have died in Paris, France.
if i seek
i'm sure I still have the original
newspaper article of Jim's death
it was in the front page
that must of have been July 9th
I remember looking for it the morning after
and cutting it out
and carried it all this time
Me? just pimply punk kid
fascinated with rock n roll!
I recall Janis &
especially where I was
w/ the news of Jimi
Then Jim. Hitting hard!
‘71 I’m starting to come of age
but all of them were surreal to me
Rock wasn’t legend yet !
it was just rock’nroll
good music on the radio
little did I know just
how fast that blues tinged
was going to die
I had forgotten too. Must have been absolutely incredible to be a fan from very early on. Hearing that song followed by that news must have been surreal.
WOW! I hope you guys will please forgive me. I just remembered what today was! I can't believe it hadn't hit me all day. I pay my own tribute to Jim every year at this time, but it totally slipped my mind until I signed on to tonight. I still can't believe it. Trust me....I am there with you guys all the way. I have the T-shirt from the 40th anniversary tour to Paris and plan to be there if they have a 50th anniversary tour even if I have to borrow from my 401k. I will be there. It's been a rough day. I work in a bank...it's the 3rd....right before the holiday...it's been crazy...please forgive me!
