James Douglas Morrison (December 8, 1943 – July 3, 1971) was the lead singer in the iconic 60s rock band The Doors. Propelled to stardom at an early age and possessing a strong charisma and sex appeal, Morrison was an anguished performer wanting to write albums with deep profound meaning, but falling short of the expectations he set for himself.

Morrison was the subject of a bestselling autobiography No One Here Gets Out Alive, which documented the heavy substance abuse which ultimately lead to his early death at the age of twenty-seven. Morrison's girlfriend, who was also caught up in the cycle of abuse, was murdered after his death by another boyfriend.
