December 8th Birthdays: Jim Morrison and Gregg Allman

Two of classic rock’s biggest names share a December 8th birthday.

In 1943, The Doors’ Jim Morrison was born.  His stage presence and unabashed sex appeal coupled with his powerful, bluesy voice helped launch The Doors to stardom in the 1960s through hits like “Light My Fire,” “Hello, I Love You,” “Love Her Madly,” “People Are Strange” and many more.

To this day, Morrison remains one of rock’s greatest frontmen.  His sudden death in 1971 at the age of 27 only lends to his legend.

…Four years after the birth of Mr. Mojo Risin’, one of Southern rock’s biggest icons would enter the world.

Gregg Allman was born on this day in 1947.  Allman made his mark along with his brother Duane with The Allman Brothers Band, which formed in 1969.  Two short years later, the band’s classic live album At Fillmore East would bring them their first taste of commercial success and pave the way for the live album trend of the 1970s.

Allman, of course, achieved solo success as well and is currently prepping for a solo tour set to kick off on New Year’s Eve in Atlanta.
