10 Cracking Songs Released After The Artist Died

9. Jim Morrison €“ Ghost Song

Jim Morrison Jim Morrison, the lead singer and songwriter of The Doors, died on 3rd July 1971, aged just 27. The cause of his death is unknown and often widely disputed, as an autopsy was not carried out. After his death, the band continued as a trio but two years later, they disbanded. However, after five years apart, they grouped together again and recorded An American Prayer. The songs on this album are pieces of Morrison's poetry covered by music. Although it is the same band, the songs are not of the same musical style to their previous work due to their nature as poems.
