A NEVER-before-seen book containing the final drug-fuelled ramblings of The Doors icon Jim Morrison has sold for £125,000.
The notes and poems were written before the singer was mysteriously found dead in a bath in Paris in 1971, aged 27.
One reads: “Films are collections of dead pictures given artificial insemination.”
Another says: “There’s a guerrilla war going on for the mind of man.”
The last entry reads: “Art is a compromise, a vast midland, it attempts to rejoin subject and object.”
The book, owned by folk artist Graham Nash, was sold in LA.
Joe Maddalena of auctioneers Profiles in History said: “It’s a window into his mind.
“In the months leading up to his death he became more and more wrapped up in his own strange philosophical thoughts.
“Without having him here to explain them it’s hard to know what any of them mean.
“But in terms of rock and roll memorabilia this is up there with the best.”
