so i'm a huge fan of the doors music but idk much about them.. what are some things not many people know about jim and the band in general? 🤔
oh boy oh boy uhhh how deep do u want me to go??? i never get to talk abt what I really want abt Jim so I’m gonna do it now fuck it
well starters for Jim he was mentally ill. bipolar??? prob. also a leetle gay. and a kinky son f a bitch. As for other relatively unknown things abt him… He was a southern gentleman! Although he worked 2 rid himself of whatever accent he may have had. excellent table manners. the secret to his hair was washing but not brushing it, he told John dens more that.
As for the rest of the band: Robby is a pro surfer n a great skateboarder. John LOVES bongos. And Obama. As for Ray hmmm Ray initially brought Jim to join his and his older brothers band Rick and the Ravens and his brothers found Jim to be way too weird. Also when the doors sorta lived all together in Ray and Dorothy’s beach house in Venice John Robby and Jim would listen to Ray and Dorothy bang all the time and imitate the noises. The first time John did acid he went into a room and jacked off. Robby is Jewish. Rays record collection got destroyed by Jim. Also ! Jim saw Ray v much as a father figure. He also saw his lawyer max fink as a father figure. Jim and Michael McClure went to gay bars together to hang out with poets. Jim went to gay bars and leather bars on his own to be Edgy and Cool. Also when Jim first got famous everyone tried to get Jim to like ‘nicer’ women and more 'proper’ or 'sophisticated’ women because Jim loved trans girls and prostitutes and weird girls and homeless girls a LOT. That’s all I got for now.
