If we think of the great bands of the 60s, surely many will mention The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Kinks or The Who. However, beyond the British Invasion, on the other side of the Atlantic there were also groups and artists who were breaking it. But at the end of the decade, there was one in particular that was delighting and making a lot of people uncomfortable, The Doors and their legendary vocalist, Jim Morrison.
It’s amazing how much Morrison accomplished alongside Ray Manzarek, Robbie Krieger and. John densmore. They went from playing the seedy clubs of Los Angeles to becoming one of the biggest bands of their generation, thanks to iconic records like their debut album, Strange Days, Waiting For The Sun, The Soft Parade O Morrison Hotel. Although yes, his story did not end as we would have loved.
Soon we will have a documentary about Jim Morrison
After finishing the recording sessions of L.A. WomanJim Morrison traveled to Paris with his girlfriend, Pamela Courson, on July 3, 1971 he was found dead in his bathtub at the age of 27. His death is a mystery – there are those who say he is still alive – but five decades after losing this iconic frontman and because his life is unknown to new generations, a documentary about the leader of The Doors will be coming to us very soon.
In accordance with Billboard, Jeff Jampol, who oversees the legacy of artists like Janis Joplin and John Lee Hooker, commented that the film will focus on Morrison’s work as an artist and not so much in the controversial figure that they often portray. In addition, here they will completely move away from the version of Jim that Oliver Stone showed us in the 1991 biopic of The Doors, starring Val Kilmer, which many fans did not like.
“Jim Morrison has been known as the Dionysian rock star clad in leather pants, the handsome Greek god, incredible singer, shaman and performer. But Jim was a polymath, poet, writer, and filmmaker long before he thought about music. For all these decades, everyone has talked about him as the rock star, which he certainly was. But we thought it was time to balance the playing field and talk about these other aspects of Jim, which were not as well known or celebrated or discussed.Jampol said.
Here we will enter the artistic side of Morrison
It should be noted that unlike the 90s movie about the California band, this documentary is 100% approved by the Jim Morrison family. That is why they will have access to a lot of material never before seen by the singer, such as lyrics of songs that never came to anything, many poems that he never published and even works of art that he created throughout his life. So as you will see, things here will be different.
The film will be produced by independent studio Gunpowder & Sky, alongside FourScore Entertainment’s Jampol and Jeff Pollack. So far, this production It still does not have an official name, much less a release date, but in Jampol’s words, they hope that may release it between 2022 and 2023. Either way, this is something fans will appreciate, including ‘Perro’ Bermúdez (who he says opened up to The Doors).
