Dead in MPLS: PRINCE (coming soon)

I will be tackling the stories of two of the biggest pop icons of this generation. Prince and George Michael. Two artists we lost too soon. I can’t stop listening to Prince at the moment which makes it difficult to not want to jump ahead and focus on the Prince issue. I can’t wait to share with you all so many personal photos of my trip two weeks ago,

Deathiversary: Janis Fucking Joplin (October 4, 1970)

On Sunday afternoon, October 4, 1970, producer Paul Rothchild became concerned when Janis Joplin failed to show up at Sunset Sound Recorders for a recording session in which she was scheduled to provide the vocal track for the already-existing instrumental track of the song "Buried Alive in the Blues." In the evening, Full Tilt Boogie's road manager, John Cooke, drove to the Landmark Motor Hotel in Hollywood where Joplin was staying. He saw Joplin's psychedelically paintedPorsche 356 C Cabriolet in the parking lot, and upon entering Joplin's room (#105), he found her dead on the floor beside her bed. The official cause of death was a heroin overdose, possibly compounded by alcohol.

β€œI'm a victim of my own insides. There was a time when I wanted to know everything ... It used to make me very unhappy, all that feeling. I just didn't know what to do with it. But now I've learned to make that feeling work for me. I'm full of emotion and I want a release, and if you're on stage and if it's really working and you've got the audience with you, it's a oneness you feel.” -Janis Joplin

Three Jim Morrison Death Theories: #1

The cause of Jim Morrison's death is unknown - he dies in Paris, and an autopsy's not required under French law. The β€œofficial” cause of death is listed as β€œcongestive heart failure,” but many theorize that he died of a drug overdose. Morrison, lead singer of The Doors, joined the 27 Club when he died on July 3, 1971. Morrison’s downfall begins at a 1969 Florida concert where he's accused of exposing himself in front of the audience. He is convicted of β€œindecent exposure and profanity,” leading promoters to cancel the band’s remaining shows. Morrison escapes to Paris in March of ’71 with his girlfriend, Pamela Courson. He gains so much weight in Paris that he becomes unrecognizable, leading many to worry that his health might be in danger. There are three main theories on how Morrison died - If I leave one out, let me know in the comments! THEORY 1: Morrison and Courson spend the night listening to records and snorting heroin - Morrison is known to be afraid of needles. The heroin they smoke is particularly strong and Morrison ODs. He's placed in a warm bath, which is said to help revive people OD-ing on heroin. It didn't work. His body is found the following morning in the bathtub.
