8 December

Come December 8, it will be 25 years since a crazed fan killed everybody's favourite Beatle. But December 8 also happens to be the birthday of someone who has contributed equally, if not more to music - Jim Morrison. Don't get me wrong, I like Lennon, but I happen to love Morrison. Jim was Dionysus to Lennon's Apollo, dark against light. The light dazzled and burned, while the darkness brought peace and madness.

I might have thrown away my old posters because I don't want to spoil my new wall, but Morrison will always be inside my head. On December 8, while the world is missing John, I'll light a candle for Jim.
