With the remaining members of the Doors -- Robby Krieger, John Densmore and Ray Manzarek -- currently celebrating the band's 40th anniversary with the release of the book "The Doors" by the Doors and the CD-DVD box set "Perception," Manzarek wanted to clear up one major mystery.

"He's dead."

Did anyone other than Manzarek himself ever really doubt that? I've never heard of any others questioning it.

Although not as common as the "Elvis is alive" hysteria, there are some who believe Morrison is alive, perhaps because he didn't die directly of drugs, or in an accident, or was murdered (and is therefore "mysterious"). This is why you don't hear that Jimi Hendrix, Buddy Holly or John Lennon are alive. (Doesn't explain the "Kurt Cobain was murdered" conspiracy theories though).

I keep telling everyone . . .

Morrison, Hendrix, Lennon, Cobain and Presley are all living it up on a secret government island where they'll live to be four hundred years old. Holly has to live on another island because he kept cheating whenever they played Blackjack.

Sheesh!

I needed the laugh today. Thanks.

[slight hijack]/ When I was much younger and much more inclined to toke a little, a friend and I were playing with a Ouija board. Having just discovered on my own The Doors, and having just read "No One Here Gets Out Alive," we decided to ask the "spirit" if Jim Morrison was alive. The "spirit" said yes and only Ray knew the truth. So now I believe he's dead, since Ray said so.

Stephen King put a little mention of a live Jim Morrison in one of his books (not naming the book just in case someone hasn't read it).
