My Day Of Hanging With The Lizard King, Part One

jimshairsureispretty.jpgIn case you forgot, the last time I filled in here at Idolator, I caused a bit of drama with my contention that the Doors are the worst band in pop music history.

A Psychic’s 732-Page Proof That She Can Mediate Conversations With Jim Morrison And Michael Hutchence

trynottohate.jpgMedium Jacqueline Murray claims that she’s the “channel” for the beyond-the-grave musings of the Doors’ Jim Morrison and INXS’ Michael Hutchence–clearly, her aura is attractive to lead singers with nice cheekbones–and she’s discovered so many interesting things about them that she’s decided to put them all down on paper. And someone decided that all 732 pages of those findings were worth publishing, which is why the two-volume set A Tale Of Two Brothers: Jim Morrison And Michael Hutchence is available for you to purchase now. The books claim to not only reveal how each frontman really died and the coverups involved, they promise shit-talking about the remaining members of INXS, postmortem gossip from Morrison paramour Pamela Courson and Hutchence babymama Paula Yates, and lots of cameos from other psychics who have Web sites. Break on through the jump to see the full press release!

So I figured it’d be only fair to share some reasons why I, personally, do not hate the Doors.
