Today is the 38th Anniversary of my testimony at Jim Morrison’s Miami trial. I was his first defense witness. Full story and photographs here.
A new book by Alan Graham, Jim’s brother-in-law, called “I Remember” will be released on March 14.
“As intimate a portrait of Jim Morrison’s character and the forces which shaped his life and death as the reader is ever likely to encounter…”
Alan’s personal account of these events provides rare glimpses and intimate insights into the other side of Jim Morrison and the people who loved him.

Today a good friend of Patricia Morrison’s, Jim’s wife, presented her with a framed print of Jim Morrison #9. She was thrilled and told me, “Thank you! The picture, hand-delivered by Fernand yesterday, is absolutely gorgeous. Thank you so much for being part of the surprise. Fernand is a dear young friend, and it was so considerate and kind of him to give me the photo for my birthday. Anyway, the picture is lovely. Now I just need to figure out where to hang it. Again thanks.”
Today is the anniversary of the Doors Concert in Miami, the infamous venue where Jim Morrison was supposed to have exposed himself. Read my story about the event here. I was there photographing the concert and subsequently ended up testifying at Jim’s trial as his first defense witness.
People ask if the lamb was real and where Jim got the lamb? Jim was handed the lamb, on stage, by Lewis Marvin of Moonfire. Lewis would travel around spreading his philosophy of non-violence and vegetarianism. Marvin would carry the lamb around to demostrate his principles that if you eat meat, you’re killing this little lamb. The skull hat Jim wore on stage was also from Lewis Marvin. Lewis died in early 2005, in Panama.
