Filmmaker Claims Jim Morrison Is Alive In Oregon
Flashnews.com ^ | today | some guy

Posted on 05/19/2005 5:45:17 PM PDT by Rodney King

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash) – Here’s news that will light the fire of Jim Morrison fans: A filmmaker claims The Doors’ frontman is alive and raising horses on a ranch in southern Oregon.

Rodeo photographer Gerald Pitts insists Morrison didn’t die in July of 1971 and he has current photographs and film footage of the rocker to prove it.

Pitts, who met Morrison in 1998, says the rocker staged his death because of a French conspiracy to kill him, Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix with narcotics because they were all Vietnam war protestors.

These days, Morrison isn’t the drug user he once was, although Pitts says when he goes over to Jim’s house he’ll “maybe have an occasional beer.”

Now Pitts claims that Morrison is announcing he’s alive, in part, to promote his recent agreement to star in a rodeo shoot-out movie based on events that actually happened to Pitts.

Pitts’ whole story airs on A Current Affair tomorrow (May 20).

Jim Morrison was a third baseman for the Pirates in the mid-80's.

I've seen this guy's photos of the supposed Jim Morrison, and they look nothing like him at all...

I saw that movie. It was a Larry Buchanan bio-pic. In it, Morrison did fake his death but he died later in a monestary:

This is hilarious. Cowboy is an odd choice for Morrison. I wonder if his Indian soul got upset.

This is truly laughable.

Was there even any French troops in Vietman then, and if so which side were they on?

Wasn't Hendrix in the US military at some point in time?

Wasn't John Kerry meeting the commie Koreans in France just around the same time for peace talks?

Why didn't they try to kill John Kerry too? Obviously he had a much larger voice against the war than these drug-addled hippies riding a trend.

The way it was pitched in Down On Us (aka Beyond the Doors), it was CIA who tried to kill them all. As the "Pied Pipers of Rock".

Imagine if it was shot on the budget it took to forge the National Guard memos.

He only composed music for a few years with the Doors. He's been decomposing ever since.

Wow. He must have hit a rough patch. I met him in Baton Rouge, in the summer of 1978, and he had a pretty nice house downtown.

I actually think there is a .1% chance this is true. A 99.9% chance of being false, but not completely impossible.

Has anybody read 'No One Gets Out Alive'? It's a Morrison Biography written back in the 70's I believe, and the circumstances surrounding his death were reeeeeaaaallllllyyyy weird, and I think only one person actually said they saw his body, and that was his girlfriend.

Not saying I believe it, I don't, at all, but if I he was on the evening news, in a few weeks, I would be stunned, but not like, say, having Elvis show up.

Elvis, when not performing for the locals, works in the kitchen at The Lantern in Cumming, Georgia.

I know this, because I done seed him through the waitress' lookie-hole.
