Jim Morrison, 27, lead singer of The Doors rock group, died Saturday night of natural causes in Paris, France, his public relations firm said yesterday.
Details of the death were not released but the firm, and a spokesman said no information would be available until Morrison’s agent returned from Paris.
The spokesman could give no explanation of the delay in announcing the death.
He said he learned of Morrison’s death from William Siddons, the singer’s personal manager, who was not immediately available for comment.
Morrison’s stage appearances caused him to be banned in several cities. He was arrested once in Miami, Fla., for using obscene language and exposing himself.
The group’s biggest single was “Light My Fire.” They also produced several million-sales albums.
