Filmmaker Claims Jim Morrison Is Alive In Oregon
NEW YORK (Wireless Flash) â€“ Hereâ€™s news that will light the fire of Jim Morrison fans: A filmmaker claims The Doorsâ€™ frontman is alive and raising horses on a ranch in southern Oregon.
Rodeo photographer Gerald Pitts insists Morrison didnâ€™t die in July of 1971 and he has current photographs and film footage of the rocker to prove it.
Pitts, who met Morrison in 1998, says the rocker staged his death because of a French conspiracy to kill him, Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix with narcotics because they were all Vietnam war protestors.
These days, Morrison isnâ€™t the drug user he once was, although Pitts says when he goes over to Jimâ€™s house heâ€™ll â€œmaybe have an occasional beer.â€
Now Pitts claims that Morrison is announcing heâ€™s alive, in part, to promote his recent agreement to star in a rodeo shoot-out movie based on events that actually happened to Pitts.
Pittsâ€™ whole story airs on A Current Affair tomorrow (May 20).
