Jim and Pam Move into Love Street
Jim Morrison and Pam Courson move in together at 1812 Rothdell Trail in Laurel Canyon in early December 1966. The house becomes the inspiration for the song “Love Street”. This is the house in which Courson catches a young Pamela Des Barres demonstrating cheerleading acrobatics for Morrison and kicks her out, photographer Bobby Klein witnesses a fire started by Morrison after an argument with Courson. The house later was badly burned by an arsonist in January 2012 (see related articles below).
An American Prayer
It started as a recurring dream Robby Krieger had been having about Jim Morrison reciting his poetry. Krieger called John Haeny, who engineered the recording sessions to see if he knew where the tapes were, and so set in motion the machinery for “An American Prayer” which was released November 30, 1978. While most think “An American Prayer” a fitting tribute to Morrison, long-time Doors producer Paul Rothchild called it “the rape of Jim Morrison.” Read the full story at, “The Doors Tribute to Jim Morrison An American Prayer”.
