Following his film studies, Jim Morrison founded the rock band, The Doors, in 1965 and earned major recognition with their second single, Light My Fire, in 1967. While the group created a unique style blending blues and rock with a psychedelic feel, Jim Morrison rapidly emerged as a veritable icon whose provocative and sexy attitude alongside his poetic and musical talent seduced fanatical audiences. Propelled as a scandalous rock star, the musician was also at the centre of a sulfurous existence made of sexual orgies, black magic invocations as well as excessive drug and alcohol intakes. Settled in Paris in 1971, the sex symbol that had now become obese fell into a spiral of addictions that prematurely killed him at only 27 – adding a new member to the now legendary 27 Club. With his tight leather pants, his bohemian shirts, wild hair and aviator shades, Jim Morrison designed the ideal rock star apparel while since his death he is at the centre of a fanatic cult and his tomb at the Père Lachaise cemetery having become a major place of pilgrimage visited by thousands of visitors – a cult that somehow overshadows his prominent talent.
