Never read this before, but this was what was read by the masses a month after the Miami incident, and it's obvious to see sensationalist journalism existed back then. The article quotes supposed witnesses, and even Bill Siddons, speaking on behalf of The Doors, who relates what Morrison supposedly explained to him about the events. This article was written before any audio or photographic evidence had yet to be produced, and was relied upon word-of-mouth and hearsay. But still, until this day, the Miami incident reminds me of Kurosawa's Rashomon and that premise that any witness to an event, and in this case, even Morrison himself, will have a different recollection of the events that actually transpired. Anyway, here's the article...
