‘MORRISON JUST TUCKED SHIRT” (HAW!)
Goodness, gracious, how poor, innocent Jim Morrison has been maligned. It took his booking agency, Ashley Famous 18 days to think up this one up as an excuse for his obscene performance at Dinner Key Auditorium March 1.
Morrison did not fondle himself on stage, the agency sad, he was tucking in his shirt.” And how can you do that without putting your hand in your pants? his agents ask.
For the information of Ashley Famous a guy can tuck in his shirt without exposing himself. I talked with a fellow who was sitting up front and he verified the exposure. Anyhow, the disgusting Miami performance of the Doors has cost the group more than $100,000. Seven dates already have been cancelled by promoters in Philadelphia, Providence, R.I., Toronto, Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, Cleveland and Detroit . They wouldn’t touch the crummy group with a mile long pole.
