Jim Morrison of The Doors was one of the greatest front men in all of music. He was idolized and worshiped as some sort of musical god. Me personally, I didn’t see it, but then again I think that David Lee Roth was the greatest musical front man ever, so what the hell do I know. Regardless of his musical stature though it seems that Morrison was also a bit of a car connoisseur, as can be seen here in a film shot in 1969 with some friends. The film, as with everything that Morrison did, makes no real sense so to speak of. In the film you’ll see him drinking and driving, doing donuts in the desert and basically acting as some sort of counter-culture schmuck. I guess that’s one of the reasons he’s no longer with us. The footage however is simply amazing from a quality standpoint, and hey, if you’re going to beat the snot out of a vintage Mustang in true rock star fashion, it may as well be a 1967 Shelby GT 500.

    Hmmm…. High definition video from 1969 of Jim Morrison listening to a radio broadcast about Jim Morrison’s death? how could this be?

    Um, Scott… if you think about it, Morrison is captured on FILM there. And FILM converts to a very nice, crisp image in the present day. Also, he’s not actually listening to the report of his death, that’s been simply dubbed in. This is taken from, “When You’re Strange” — a recent Doors documentary. The original footage of Jim is taken from a short film he made called H W Y.
