This is what the 3 musicians got for their 'integrity' and of course 70 grand.
But a pittance compared to what they gave away.
They whined and weaselled when Jim got home and discovered their duplicity.
They blamed Jac Holzman and once Jim was dead they blamed him.
We saw Manzarek, who was the only one with any balls of the musical trio, try to blame Jim for being where he was without telling them. And how they could not contact him as he needs to be at the other 3s beck and call 24hrs a day.
Did they have to do the same when they went anywhere?
As if they even tried 'where's Jim?'...'no idea'.....'why is he never here when we need him'.
Again Manzarek tried to justify it as Buick wanted an answer 'now' so they could not wait a few days.
None of the three had to be micro managed by the record company so why should Morrison.
I'm sure Buick could wait until all the partners were contacted so this was just another Manzarek lie.
They told Jim, Jac had gotten them them to accept but when Jim confronted Jac he was told it was not the record boss who chose to sign a deal.
More lies from Ray.
Basically it was everyone but the treacherous trio who had sold themselves for 70 thou. It was not as if LMF was Jim's song but he would go into bat to defend it as hard as he would his own.
This told you everything you need to know about the individual Doors.
But their treachery destroyed the trust Jim Morrison had with people whom he considered friends but were now business partners. (he said exactly that)
Buick made a TV advert which was shown in some parts of the States and these newspaper/magazine adverts.
Jac Holzman saw it and mentioned it in Follow The Music the Elektra History.
The campaign was soon quietly brushed under the carpet, perhaps when Jim said he would destroy Buicks on stage with a sledge hammer.
That was obviously bravado but the threat and the bad publicity was enough to stop the LMF campaign.
Considering how fast the band sued his corpse for what he owed I wonder if they subtracted Jim's Buick cut.
It would happen again after Jim died when they sold his ROTS to a tyre company in the UK.
The drummer felt bad about this and gave away his cut and never again allowed his art to be sold to the highest bidder.
The photos are from magazine adverts in late 1969 early 1970. Or are they?
‘Light My Fire’.......Doors Icon?
