Fave Foto Friday (rock and roll fantasy IV)


***


Here is the infamous photo of The Lizard King, Jim Morrison; part of the "Young Lion" series shot by photographer, Joel Brodsky.


Brodsky recalls that Jim was pretty drunk when these photos were taken, and yet these photos, specifically the one above, have become iconic.


I had this poster of Jim on my bedroom wall for most of my high school years. Every night, the last thing I saw was the seductive stare of the dead rock god looking down one me just before I shut my eyes ... I guess that explains a lot.
