People Behind The Doors
25 March 2010 (here)

The official story is that Jim Morrison died at the age of 27 years old in the early morning hours of July 3, 1971, in his bathtub at his apartment in Paris where he was staying with his girlfriend Pamela Courson. The Doors' manager, Bill Siddons, flew in from L.A. but did not see his body. Why not? The only people who apparently did were a few emergency medical personnel and Dr. Max Vassile, who is now deceased. He never gave any interviews only saying that Morrison died of "natural causes" specifically of heart failure which is why there was no autopsy.

In this Daily Mail article, things have changed quite a bit. Supposedly, Jim Morrison died in the bathroom of a Paris night club and that a singer, Marianne Faithfull, was sworn to secrecy not to talk about the events that lead to his overdosing of heroin that he bought from dealers for his girlfriend, Pamela Courson. Jim Morrison never did heroin in the U.S.A. and he had an intense hatred for the drug and needles as well. What did Marianne Faithful see exactly?

So why would he begin taking heroin in Paris, France? And if he did overdose why are mysterious people like this singer sworn not to talk about the events that night which led to his death? Wouldn't these events have come out into the mainstream press several weeks later? So what really did happened to James Douglas Morrison? 

And who was the American poet and singer for the rock band, The Doors, and what did he really stand for? This is an excerpt from a 1970 interview with Lizzie James:

He talks about his dislike for drugs with Lizzie James in this 1970 full interview. We are supposed to believe that he died of a drug overdose which caused heart failure. But his personal physician, Dr. Derwin, gave him a complete physical examination before he left to France and said to the press, "Jim was in excellent health before leaving to Paris."

"We walked down to the Garden Spot on La Cienega for dinner. That was the evening we talked about drugs. I told him stories I'd heard of his acid escapades, and he laughed and said, 'I'm not interested in drugs,' almost scornfully, and lifted his martini glass towards me, rotating it slightly with a smile that said that this was the 'Crystal Ship.' Another time I offered him some speed, pot and once or twice some very superior downers, and he declined always, once with a derisive shake of his head saying, 'I don't need any pills.'"
(Jim Morrison did in fact use LSD, marijuana, and other drugs, but towards the last couple of years of his life he mostly used alcohol.)

The Rolling Stone interview was removed from youtube, so here is another interview with Jim Morrison (audio starts off low quality):

Update 28 Feb 2008:

I have noticed a pattern. After they kill famous and important people, and then they become legends, they have to do something to turn the general population away from them by writing lies like these below: morrison was bisexual

Otherwise, people may be inspired to find out why he really died. It's better to turn the masses away before they start investigating the crimes they have committed and find out some terrible facts.

The remaining three members of the band, his former friends, and many others that knew him said the book, Jim Morrison: Life, Death, Legend, by Stephen Davis, is spreading the lie that he was bisexual or homosexual. They all say without question he was straight.

And he loved one girl in particular, his long time girlfriend, Pamela Courson who died two years and nine months later after Jim Morrison's death on April 25, 1974 of a heroin overdose — surprise, surprise. How many rock stars and the people that knew them during the 1960's and 1970's died of a "heroin overdose" or other strange deaths? For instance, look at this list of dead rock stars put together by a police-pathologist, Dr. Ed Friedlander. What is going on here?

The book, No One Here Gets Out Alive, by Jerry Hopkins and Danny Sugerman, is described as the first biography of Jim Morrison, but his sister, Anne Morrison, said that "my brother was not in that book." In other words, she did not consider the book to be a biography of her brother. Some people on the Internet have sarcastically referred to this book as Nothing Here but Lies. Ray Manzarek was so disgusted by Oliver Stone's movie about The Doors which portrayed Jim Morrison as crazy and out-of-control that he directed his own movie The Soft Parade to counteract the Zionist propaganda and lies. And recently a new documentary about Jim Morrison and The Doors, When You're Strange, has been released to further counteract the propaganda about Morrison and the band.

Morrison's military awards

According to his military record, Admiral Morrison was awarded the Legion of Merit, the Air Medal with two Gold Stars and the Presidential Unit Citation Ribbon (World War II), the Bronze Star Medal with "V" for valor device (Korean War), and Vietnam Service Medal.

Rear Admiral Morrison also received the American Defense Service Medal, American Campaign Medal, Asiatic-Pacific Campaign Medal with three Stars, European-African-Middle Eastern Campaign Medal, World War II Victory Medal, National Defense Service Ribbon with Bronze Star, Korean Service Medal, United National Service Medal, and Armed Forces Expeditionary Medal (Taiwan Straits). He also received the Korean Presidential Unit Citation Medal.

As of Nov. 2009, both the New York Times (here) and the Wikipedia (here) have selected this particular photo of Morrison with a smear on his face.

Is it a coincidence that of all the photos, they selected one with this imperfection?

A British newspaper (here) used the same photo, but without the imperfection.

Update 25 Feb 2016:
Wikipedia has since replaced that photo. Apparently the editors decided that such obnoxious behavior was inappropriate even for the low standards of Wikipedia.

Jim Morrison came from a military family. His father was a career U.S. Navy officer and a graduate of the Naval Academy. Admiral G.S. Morrison was one of the youngest Navy officers ever selected to become a Rear Admiral, at the age of 47-years-old. Then a young Ensign, Admiral Morrison was stationed at Pearl Harbor, and was an eyewitness to the attack on Dec. 7, 1941. He flew fighter aircraft in the South Pacific during the last year of WW II and again during the Korean War.

Jim Morrison and his family were frequently moving during the late 1940's through the 1960's to new assignments his father was ordered to report to. While Jim Morrison was in college at UCLA film school, his father was leading a battle carrier group off the coast of South Vietnam in 1964.
You can read his biography here in this article:

Jim Morrison graduated from film school at UCLA in 1965 and he and Ray Manzarek formed The Doors in June of that year. The Vietnam war was escalating and there was a particular event that many Americans may still not have heard of yet but Admiral Morrison was very vocal about. That is an intelligence gathering ship, the U.S.S. Liberty which was stationed in the Mediterranean Sea near the Sinai Peninsula during the Six Day War between Israel and Egypt when it was attacked by Israeli fighter jets on June 8, 1967 killing 34 and wounding 171 crewmembers.

The attack by the Israeli fighter jets lasted for over an hour and the crew of the U.S.S. Liberty, being a non-combat ship, had only two 50 caliber guns both fore and aft of the vessel, but never got off a shot.

After the Israeli fighter aircraft attack, the U.S.S. Liberty was again attacked, this time by by Israeli torpedo boats, which fired five torpedoes, one of which hit the Liberty creating a forty-foot wide hole and killing 25 sailors. The Israeli torpedo boats also attacked with cannon fire and machine gunned defenseless American sailors in the water and as they were attempting to enter life rafts. The torpedo boats however failed to sink the U.S.S. Liberty.
At this page you can hear audio interviews of Commander James Ennes, U.S. Navy, retired, who was one of the officers on board that day. He tells in graphic detail how the attack happened and how they repeatedly told the Israelis they were an American ship. There is also an interview with a sailor who was on the U.S.S. America.

During the attack, the U.S.S. Liberty was able to get off a message to its flagship the aircraft carrier U.S.S. America and said that they were under attack. The U.S.S. America immediately scrambled F-4 Phantom fighter jets, but the jets were recalled by President Lyndon Johnson. What were President Johnson's motives for doing this?

Meanwhile, after the Israeli torpedo boats murdered American sailors trying to reach the safety of the life rafts, in came some Israeli helicopters with assault troops ready to board the ship and to kill the remaining crew members who had survived both attacks. The helicopters however, did not land on the ship as there was some radio traffic that suggested that U.S. fighter jets were again on their way to engage the Israelis.

You can read about the account of the U.S.S. Liberty here at the Wikipedia. Keep in mind however, that Wikipedia has strong Zionist connections so they are going to try and favor Israel in a positive light. There is another website, from the crew of the U.S.S. Liberty.

The U.S.S. Liberty flew the American flag that day so there was no question that the Israeli fighter jets did not know whose ship it was they were attacking. The Israeli fighter jets used rockets and cannon fire at the ship and many of the sailors that were hit by fragments were unrecognizable because of the damage these weapons do to the human body. Some of the sailors were also incinerated beyond recognition. Clearly, the Israelis were trying to sink this American ship. Although they claimed over the past decades that it was a mistake. Admiral Morrison thought otherwise:

Here is an excerpt from the Wikipedia of Admiral Morrison's stance against Israel (this section has since been erased, but a copy is still in their editing history here):

Some believe his Naval career may have been slowed by political undertones surrounding his analysis of the U.S.S. Liberty incident which occurred in 1967. Morrison opposed the official U.S. Navy response to the attack, and proposed an immediate and swift economic and military response against Israel for the attack on an official U.S. Navy ship. 

[Admiral] Morrison's analysis and political motivation was at odds with the soft non-militaristic response ultimately taken by the U.S. State Department and U.S. Navy. [Admiral] Morrison asserted Israeli intentionally attacked the U.S.S. Liberty, trying to disguise Israeli torpedo boats as Syrian vessels in an attempt to provoke a war between the United States and Syria. This would have increased United State military and financial assistance during the Six Day War.

Here is a video interview of Admiral Morrison and Jim's sister Anna.

At 6:11 to 6:34 in the video, Admiral Morrison makes an important point regarding how he first heard about his son's death. He says that he was contacted by the Naval attaché in Paris that Jim had died of a heart attack in a Paris hospital. 

The official version is that Jim Morrison died of a heart attack in his bathtub in his apartment, but there are no reports of Jim Morrison being taken to any hospital. It is possible that what Admiral Morrison heard was misinformation. However, it is also possible, during the confusion of the first few days of Jim Morrison's death, that the Zionists got their stories mixed up, and what Admiral Morrison heard was one of the incorrect versions of Morrison's death. You can see this with 9/11. During the first few days we heard many different conflicting accounts of what happened that day.

At the very end of the interview, Admiral Morrison says, "Jim's moral and ethical standards were very high". However, anything that is written about Jim Morrison by the Jews is completely opposite to his description of his son. They always make him out to be an out-of-control freak, drug addict, or a disrespectful rock star.

Also, there are no interviews, videos, or news reports of Pamela Courson talking about Jim Morrison's death, and 2 years, 9 months later she died mysteriously of a heroin overdose. This is significant because she may have known something about Jim Morrison's death but was afraid or threatened not to discuss it. Hopefully, she did talk about his death to someone and they will come forward with their information.


It is possible that Zionist Jews killed Jim Morrison in retaliation for his father's stance against Israel, and wanting a U.S. military strike against that country. Jim Morrison's death was reported six days after it happened, so it may have been that the Zionist Jews had kidnapped him to put pressure on Admiral Morrison to stop his criticism of Israel and prevent a growing rebellion of high-ranking Naval and other military officers against Israel. However, something may have gone wrong and the Zionists decided to kill him.

Another possibility is that the Zionists were afraid of Jim Morrison's independence. Perhaps they thought they could no longer control him so they killed him to get rid of someone who certainly had enough personal courage to expose the criminal Jews and the crimes they had committed.

The Jews claim that Jim Morrison and his father, Rear Admiral Steve Morrison, didn't get along very well, but it sure does seem like they were fighting a common enemy, the Zionist Jews.

Additional information about the attack of the U.S.S. Liberty:

Commander James Ennes also reports that:

"According to eyewitness accounts by Israeli officers and journalists, the Israeli Army--the Army that claims to hold itself to a higher moral standard than other armies--executed as many as 1,000 Arab prisoners during the 1967 war."
An Israeli military historian, Aryeh Yitzhaki also said,
"That Israeli troops carried out several mass killing in 1967 in which about 1,000 Egyptian prisoners were slain in the Sinai. Yitzhaki, who worked in the Israeli army's history department after the war, said he and other officers collected testimony from dozens of soldiers who admitted killing POW's. He said a report on the killings submitted to his superiors has been locked into a safe at military headquarters." 
And yet another Israeli historian, Uni Milstein, said:
"There were many incidents in the 1967 war in which Egyptian soldiers were killed by Israeli soldiers after they had raised their hands in surrender....It was no official policy, but there was an atmosphere that it was ok to do it, Milstein said."
He also commented, 
"Some commanders decided to do it, others refused. But everyone knew about it."
It is important to note that these murders show a pattern of how the Zionists mirror the Nazis in their killings in WW II. Indeed, as Arthur Koestler reports in his book, "The 13th Tribe," the word Nazi comes from the last four letters of Ashkenazi which is what the Khazarian Jews called themselves.

 People Behind The Doors

26 March 2010

Jac Holzman 
Jac Holzman was born in 1931 and attended St. John's College. He was the CEO and President of Elektra Records. He personally saw the Doors play several times live before signing them to a six record contract. The Doors' first record, The Doors, was released in 1967 and their last record, L.A. Woman, was released in 1971.

However, in 1970, Mr. Holzman sold all of his music interests to Warner Communications, Inc., but he continuted to run Elektra Records until 1973. You can read more about his illustrious career in music and the home video and cable industry here: followthemusic/whojac.html.

And this Wikipedia entry says, "After Edgar Bronfman, Jr. and a group of investors bought out Warner Music Group from Time Warner in 2004 for $2.6 billion, Bronfman brought Holzman out of quasi-retirement to help revitalize his company, reuniting him with the company that had acquired his previous forays into the music business...." It is interesting to note that the Zionist Jews like Edgar Bronfman, Jr. don't work with just anyone.

Jac Holzman talks about when he was president of Elektra Records and his time with The Doors in this video clip:

Danny Sugerman 

Sugerman, younger.

Sugerman, older.
Danny Sugerman was born in 1954 and died in 2005 of lung cancer at the age of 50 years old. He was one of the managers of The Doors. He wrote several books about Jim Morrison and The Doors, including No One Gets Out Of Here Alive with Jerry Hopkins. As reported in this article, many people have referred to this book as "Nothing In Here But Lies".

Sugerman began working for The Doors when he was 12 years old. Jim Morrison hired him to answer fan mail. Later on, in 1991, Sugerman married Fawn Hall, of the Iran-Contra scandal. She was Lt. Col. Oliver North's secretary and she was implicated in stealing and destroying important documents regarding the investigation.

Sugerman dressed like Jim Morrison and apparently idolized him. Many people say he wanted to be like Jim Morrison. However, completely unlike Jim Morrison, Sugerman was a heroin addict, and stated, "I was on heroin for almost fifteen years and I am active on the college lecture/reading circuit, often teaming up with other addict writers like Wm. Burroughs, Jim Carroll and Timothy Leary...." You can read a letter he wrote to author Dr. Arnold S. Trebach who wrote, The Heroin Solution here:

Here is an interview of Danny Sugerman in 1981 about his book, No One Gets Out of Here Alive. The footage is grainy but the audio is OK.

Some people speculate that Sugerman was involved in the cover-up of Jim Morrison's death. For more evidence of his connection to a cover-up of Morrison's death, watch this interview in which he mentions a promise he made to Morrison's girlfriend:

In this Chicago cable television talk show, Lifestyle with Pat Cheffer in 1989,  Danny Sugerman talks about Jim Morrison's death from 1:40 to 2:20. He says, 

"First Pamela Morrison had given me information as to how Jim died and while my collaborator was doing the book before I got involved. When she told me how Jim died she knew I knew Jerry Hopkins which is who I did the book with. And she made me promise her that I wouldn't tell him what she told me and I did promise, I said I wouldn't ever tell anybody."
So what was the promise that he kept to Pamela Courson? What did she tell him about Jim Morrison's death that he promised to keep a secret?

In another television talk show, Insider, later that year Danny Sugerman again talks about Morrison's death starting from 4:15 to 5:00:

Interviewer: "Do you not suggest in the book that it was Pamela who gave him the heroin that eventually led to his death?"

Danny Sugerman: "Pamela was a heroin addict. I think Jim OD'd from heroin. Jim was an alcoholic. They were together in Paris. Pam felt responsible for Jim's death. He probably didn't even know what it was. And like most people who do heroin for the first time he got real sick and went to the bathroom to take a bath and the hot water with the condition he was in physically knowing Jim, he was probably drunk by midnight already anyway, and the heroin in concert with the other elements did him in and he never woke up."

Sugerman was asked if Pamela was responsible for Morrison's death, but Sugerman responded with vague and evasive remarks about how she was addicted to heroin, and that Morrison was an alcoholic. Furthermore, Sugerman didn't say that Pam was responsible for his death; rather, he said Pamela felt responsible, which could be interpreted as Sugerman's attempt to support the official story without actually lying about it.

Sugerman also said he thinks Morrison OD'd from heroin, but he didn't say Pamela was responsible, which could be interpreted as Sugerman suspecting that Morrison was indeed given an overdose of heroin, but Pamela was not the person who gave it to him. Furthermore, he didn't like hypodermic needles, so the official story is that he snorted the heroin! But why would a woman give heroin to her lover when she knows that he abhors it? And why would such a man be willing to snort the heroin?

We have to ask ourselves what Pamela Courson told Danny Sugerman about Jim Morrison's death that she asked him to keep a secret? And why did Danny Sugerman support the offical version that Jim Morrison died of a heroin overdose? Was he afraid to be honest?

Bill Siddons 

Bill Siddons, born in 1949, was only 18 years old when he began to manage The Doors from 1968 to 1972. After the death of Jim Morrison, he managed the three remaining members of The Doors for two more albums.

In the Wikipedia article linked below, Siddons says, "He was the one person in the United States Pamela Courson contacted from Paris after Morrison had died. He arranged the funeral and burial with Pamela but never saw Jim's body due to the closed casket and his aversion to seeing his friend dead."

Bill Siddons in 2008 during an interview
He also said, "We buried Jim correctly." and,  "And that perhaps was greatest achievement: making sure we kept it quiet until it was done the right way. Nothing to hide, but we knew that what was going to happen because we'd just been through it with Jimi and Janis."

Should we trust Bill Siddons? He went to Paris to verify the death of Jim Morrison but refused to look in the coffin to identify Morrison, "...but never saw Jim's body due to the closed casket and his aversion to seeing his friend dead."

Why did he go to Paris, France to identify Jim Morrison's dead body if he was truly incapable of viewing Morrison's dead body?

Bill Siddons, left, sitting next to Jim Morrison, and Robbie Krieger standing behind them
There were no official French police photographs of Jim Morrison's body. In fact, there are no photographs of any kind of Jim Morrison's body. And Bill Siddons never saw the body. So what evidence do we have that Jim Morrison died in the manner that was reported? If Siddons had looked in the casket, would he have seen that Morrison died a violent death? Or was the casket empty? Or was Morrison kidnapped? Have you heard about the mysterious disappearance of Christopher Bollyn and his family; the mysterious disappearance of Natalie Holloway; or the Johnny Gosch kidnapping? 

Bill Siddons dated Lynette 'Squeaky Fromme', according to this article: She was a member of the Charles Manson family in 1967, and was arrested for attempting to assassinate President Gerald Ford in 1975. Charles Manson, of course, was accused of the Sharon Tate murders. Sharon Tate married film director Roman Polanski in Jan 1968, and was killed August 9, 1969. 
For more information about:

• Roman Polanski and his rape of a 13-year-old girl here.
• Squeaky Fromme here.

Isn't it interesting that Bill Siddons dated Lynette 'Squeaky Fromme', and Danny Sugerman married Fawn Hall? Also, Natalie Holloway's mother is dating JonBenet Ramsey's father! Are these coincidences? Or are criminals attracted to one another, or to the relatives of crime victims?

To add further to the confusion, all three remaining members of The Doors have made strange statements concerning Jim Morrison's gravesite. For example:

Ray Manzarek, in a recent interview, said when he was at his grave, "The energy just wasn't there, man." 

Robbie Krieger commented that when he was at his grave, he didn't feel like Jim Morrison was there.

John Densmore said he thought the grave was too short for Jim Morrison's body.

Paul A. Rothchild 
Paul Rothchild was born in 1935 and died in 1995 of lung cancer. He was the producer of The Doors for five of their albums from 1967-1971. He decided not to produce their last album, L.A. Woman because of a disagreement with the band where they were headed musically with this album. You can read more about his biography here:
Paul Rothchild, left, standing next to Jim Morrison in 1967

(Click photo for details)
Rothchild gave an interview with BAM magazine in 1981.
In one of the questions, he answers very critically of Danny Sugerman's part in the book No One Here Gets Out Alive. Rothchild says,
"Danny Sugerman, (co-author of the book) is a FAN of The Doors who took Jerry Hopkins' original manuscript and destroyed it. Danny Sugerman didn't interview me, Jerry did. Danny then changed a lot of my interview to HEARSAY that other people did. I am FURIOUS about the book, and so is everyone else I've talked to who is quoted in it. It's a great piece of sensationalism, very little of which holds to historical fact. The general shape of it is correct, but Jim is sensationalized rather than spectacularly, and the best parts of Morrison are not there. The people who really helped The Doors' career are treated in a very cavalier manner, and the only people who come off well in my opinion are the groupies and sycophants who were hanging around the band and close to Danny Sugerman--who was a groupie himself."
He further comments on the book in a later question,
"There's only one thing in the whole process that bothers me, and that is Danny Sugerman's book. If Jim Morrison were alive today, he'd be livid about that book. Not because the truth it tells, but because of the lies it maintains. Like Sugerman's trying to keep going the myth that Jim might still be alive! That is pure, total unmitigated BULLSHIT! If Danny had sat where you're sitting and listened to Pam after she came back from Paris, he wouldn't be trying to perpetuate this myth---and that's what it is. Pam and I were very dear friends. She sat on this sofa night after night and she'd cry, with the DEEPEST grief, over the loss of Jim. Night after night. It became a mania for her. She eventually gave up her life because of her love for Jim."
Is it possible that Danny Sugerman was pushing the myth that Jim Morrison was still alive in order to cover up his murder and how he was killed so people would not investigate Morrison's death? Danny Sugerman began by answering fan mail for the band, and later became their manager. Was Danny Sugerman just an innocent young man who idolized Jim Morrison, or was he much more than that?
