Today in Music History

IN 1970, Jim Morrison performed for the last time with The Doors. The concert in New Orleans ended early when Morrison smashed a hole in the stage with a microphone stand. He departed The Doors for what was supposed to be a temporary absence to concentrate on his poetry. He was found dead in the bathtub at his Paris apartment the following July, apparently of a heart attack brought on by drug abuse.
