Jim Morrison Net Worth: Jim Morrison was an American rock singer, poet and songwriter who had a net worth of $15 million dollars. He was born to George Stephen Morrison and Clara Clarke Morrison, on December 8, 1943 in Melbourne, Florida. His father was a naval aviator and achieved rank of Real Admiral. Jim Morrison was an intelligent and sharp child. At the age of five, he experienced a horrifying scene when he saw some dead bodies of some travelers in the New Mexico Desert. It left a life-lasting impression on his mind. He was educated at UCLA. Upon graduation he and his fellow UCLA student, Ray Manzarek, formed the rock group "The Doors", a band that would rule the American rock stage in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Morrisson, who was the group's lead singer and songwriter, was known for his drinking and outrageous behavior on stage. With the Doors, he saw the release of 5 studio albums, The Doors, Strange Days, Waiting For The Sun, The Soft Parade and Morrison Hotel. It was in 1966 when Elekra Records signed the Doors and it launched its first album in 1967. The single "Light My Fire" took the Doors to No. 1 in the ranking of rock and roll music. Morrison left his band in 1970 and moved to Paris where he started writing poetry. Morrison's long-term companion was Pamela Courson, who was also named a sole heir to his possessions in the will that he left after his death. At the age of 27 on July 3, 1971 Morrison was found dead in a bathtub. The cause of death was apparently considered to be a heart failure. However, his death remains a mystery to date as some theories claim that he was overdosed with heroin.
