Jim Morrison of the “Doors”… His Brother Andrew Lives in Pahoa???

I was just reading this blog and I was stunned to read the following:

…George S. Morrison, who commanded the fleet during the Gulf of Tonkin incident that led to an escalation of the Vietnam War and whose son Jim was the lead singer of the Doors, died Nov. 17 in Coronado, Calif. He was 89 and lived in Coronado…

…His wife, Clara Clarke, died in 2005. Besides his daughter, Anne, of Thousand Oaks, Calif., he is survived by his son Andrew, of Pahoa, Hawaii. Jim Morrison died in Paris in 1971…

I’m a pretty big fan of the “Doors”… so if anyone knows how to get a hold of this Mr. Andrew Morrison, I’d love to sit down and treat him to lunch sometime!

  1. Oh, darn, I left a long explanatory comment but it seems to have vanished. In summary, Andy Morrison has no interest, nor has he ever been interested, in discussing his brother or riding on Jim’s coattails (plus he hasn’t lived in Hawaii for some time). Jim grew up in a strict upper middle class family (with an absentee father) and, like many of that generation, rebeled. He had his demons, and being very bright coupled with alcoholism, lead him to self destruct.
    The Morrison parents were always above the fray and valued their privacy. The Admiral, naturally, wanted Jim to follow in his footsteps, which we all know Jim took the opposite path. To them, Jim was the eldest of their three children.
    The rumors and untruths spread over the past 46 years turned Jim into someone who never existed. Jim was more famous in death than he ever was alive. He eschewed money and not much impressed him.
