December 8 – Jim Morrison Born – John Lennon Died

December 8 plays quite a significant roll in Rock N’ Roll history.

James Douglas “Jim” Morrison  born December 8, 1943 Melbourne, Florida, U.S.

John Winston Ono Lennon died December 8, 1980 New York City, New York, U.S.

There is no confirmation that Morrison and Lennon ever actually met. On September 13, 1969, Jim Morrison and John Lennon both appeared at the “Toronto Rock and Roll Revival concert. The Doors headlined, while Lennon performed with his Plastic Ono Band. There is no proof that they interacted with each other at the concert. According to one account of Alice Cooper’s “chicken incident,” which occurred at the Toronto festival, Lennon watched the incident from one side of the stage, while Morrison egged Cooper on from the other side of the stage.

Now that would have been an epic photo.
