TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Doors singer Jim Morrison would have turned 67 on Wednesday. On Thursday, Florida's Gov. Charlie Crist and the other members of the state's Clemency Board will decide whether the late rocker should be pardoned for a 1969 indecent exposure conviction.
Morrison was appealing the conviction when he was found dead in a Paris bathtub in 1971. Crist has been considering a pardon since a fan suggested it in 2007 but has waited until his final Clemency Board meeting. Crist leaves office Jan. 4.
The governor says he has doubts about whether Morrison exposed himself during a rowdy Miami concert by The Doors on March 1, 1969.
The surviving band members say a drunken Morrison teased the crowd, but never actually exposed himself.
