Asbolutely Dead: How the Jim Morrison Industry lives on

The Rev. Al Friston, Rock's Backpages, June 2001

"Well, we’re all in the cosmic movie, you know that! That means the day you die, you gotta watch your whole life recurring eternally forever, in Cinemascope, 3-D. So you better have some good incidents happenin’ in there... and a fitting climax!"

Jim Morrison, introducing ‘Been Down So Long’ at Cobo Arena, Detroit Michigan, May 8, 1970
