Doors Members: Florida Governor Should Pardon Morrison

Guitarist Robby Krieger and keyboardist Ray Manzarek, who played with rock legend Jim Morrison in The Doors, are supporting Florida Gov. Charlie Crist’s proposal to pardon Morrison for an indecent exposure conviction after a 1969 Miami concert.

Both bandmates said Wednesday that Morrison never actually pulled out his penis during the now infamous concert at the Dinner Key Auditorium.

They said he was drunk and teased the crowd but he never followed through.

They said Morrison was inspired that night by a stage group called The Living Theater, which was performing plays in which actors disrobed — but he didn’t actually undo his pants.

Morrison was appealing the conviction when he was found dead in 1971 in a Paris bathtub.
