Historic Jim Morrison Signed Bail Bond Up for Auction
Step into rock history with this unique piece of memorabilia from the enigmatic frontman of The Doors, Jim Morrison. - a piece of history that tells a tale of the wild and controversial rock star's life.
Measuring at 7" x 8", this historic document bears the stamp of Dade County Florida Court Clerk J.F. McCracken, dated November 12, 1969. The document officially charges Morrison with several crimes, including criminal lewd behavior, indecent exposure, open profanity, and public intoxication. A subsequent verdict found him guilty of all charges on September 20, 1970, leading to a sentence of six months in a Florida prison.
However, Morrison, still out on bond, took flight to France to dodge this prison sentence and never returned to the United States. Tragically, he was found dead in his Paris apartment on July 3, 1971, due to heart failure brought on by a heroin overdose. His death, at the age of 27, grouped him with other iconic figures of that era who passed away too soon, including Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin.
