I reckon we'd all agree that Jim was a special character. I remember reading somewhere that he wasa practising magickian.
As for the demonic posession thing - when he did his indian thing onstage it was because he felt he was being posessed by the soul of an indian boy he watched die in a road accident.
Didn't Robert Johnson say he'd sold his soul to the devil too? These musicians are all at it.

most of these guys of that era, including Jim Morrison, were into Magik, just as most of today's political and religious leaders and Royal families are. They are occultists like Aleister Crowley was and back then this was expressed too in the music these guys played. Lots of drugs and lots of rituals. Just ask Prince Charles etc etc etc etc.

When I was a kid I loved the Doors, and I still do it. I think that Jim Morrisson, along with
many other people, was not very interested to live a long life. They like a short but
intensive life. I had some friend with that mentality, which I do not share. I always said NO NO to drugs, I haven't even try that stuff.
About demons possessing people.....that's a religious issue. Some people are really
evel....

What more reason does a person need?
Now don’t get me wrong, music moves me, I get caught up in a good vibe as easily as the next, but the real underlying reason I love music, it makes the ladies move the way I likes to see ‘em move.

Damn it, Cornbread, I’ve got to get out more!!


Cheers, Eagan! Give us a good Rock and Roll story. I know you've got some good ones...

People haven't been dancing around doing drugs for thousands of years for no reason.
You can go to lots of places with the right beats and compounds.
I've witnessed first-hand a Haitian voodoo ritual band perform (sans the actual ritual), man, that music affects you immediately, and it's the same when you see someone like Burning Spear, or Muddy Waters, or even the Grateful Dead (all of whom I've seen in person, and the list goes on and on).
Great musicians are able to channel something - that something being hard to define. I've seen it manifest in light and dark ways. I'm not saying they are "possessed", per se, maybe they are just channeling collective crowd energy and transforming it into archetypal information that is experienced on a subconscious level, blah blah blah...

As Bob Marley said:
"He who feels it, knows it"

Similar stories for Jimmy Page and Peter Fonda, but now look at them both aged and creating children’s coloring books. Singing songs about the “little engine that could”.

I know it is hard for someone to understand what was going on in the world back then if you didn’t live it. It was simply the times, my friend, the times.

Lots of new found freedoms, lots of money, lots of drugs, and lots of time, all with no preparation or guidance of how to deal with these things, some good people lost their way and paid the ultimate price. Some of us pulled through.

I believe in super-conscious awareness, becoming a conduit for the source energy, plugging-in to the universal mind ... but can demonic possession ever fit into the equation?

I was watching a video by Michael Tsarion on youtube under the user Mtsar that has since been removed. It was a full documentary but labeled as "excerpts", and he went into the dead rock star thing, Sun King worship he called it. And then the sacrifice, or fall of the Sun King--all planned perhaps by the shadow government. He mentioned the later days of Elvis and all of the sun imagery used during that time. Then he mentioned Jimi and Jim--and I think maybe one other?--in passing.

I connected this to the orgiastic music, the raucous excessive saturnalian aspects, Morrison's utopia of night, and talking about that "something inside" of his head talking for him, making his music, and he perhaps just thinking its just part of the shamanic experience. Then stories of meeting entities, a dead indian ghost jumping into his body, all things we take for allegory or perceptions of the personal reality, or perhaps something concocted to give oneself an air of mystery, or to incite something with society.

Then there is the story of Jimi Hendrix crying in front of the mirror because he was possessed, as told by his "live-in g/f"
--and them both drinking copious amounts of alcohol in order to silence it. I guess it could all be chalked up to too much LSD and all of that, but the fruits of that time just seem to be rotted before they were ever ripe

Led Zeppelin » Kashmir Lyrics
Oh let the sun beat down upon my face, stars to fill my dream
I am a traveler of both time and space, to be where I have been
To sit with elders of the gentle race, this world has seldom seen
They talk of days for which they sit and wait and all will be revealed


Mysticism was to Jimmy Page and his clan what Satanism is to someone like Marilyn Manson or Nine Inch Nails: Imagery to use to piss off the parents. Whether they truly understood the meaning is something else.

Jim was possessed by demons.........drugs, alcohol, women, fame, childhood problems......

Jim was a highly sensitive man who had to indulge in certain vices just to be able to live in the world that he created with his talent.

I've yet to see anyone with lyrics that convey the thoughts and feelings he had.......he was unique.

I do find it interesting that Jim had many problems with his father, a high ranking naval officer, and you with yours also a a man who was in the navy.
