Today in Rock n Roll History:


On April 3, 1969, Jim Morrison was arrested for indecent exposure while on stage performing in Florida.

I wonder, would he have been arrested today for doing the same thing?

What do you think?

In America? Hell yeah. Remember the Super Bowl incident? People freaked.
In Holland? Hell no. The Dutch are über cool. My brother was in the audience when Jimbo stumbled on stage during the Airplane's set at the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam in 1969. Morrison collapsed and the Doors went on as a trio.

Hans, No way! Poor Jim! Not too many people can say they saw The Doors perform live.

Good question. I guess it would depend on the venue, but probably. I wouldn't mind being a witness... ;-)

Didn't Marilyn Manson reveal himself too, I don't know if he was arrested or not. Anyway, I don't think someone would be arrested now if they did that, well depending on the venue and who was performing possibly...

Zapped, you and me both :)

Jeff, MM probably did do that.

I think that the Superbowl incident was totally lame. I think it was done on purpose, I mean really...LOL!

Hans, you are so right about the differences in Europe and here.

What's always bugged me is why is it ok to see a naked woman in an "R" rated movie but NOT a naked man! I want equal rights! ;)

Marilyn Manson was sued for allegedly teabagging some security guy at a concert a year or two ago. I'm not sure if the suit was settled or thrown out, though.
In this day and time, it would probably depend on the city/state, but if he was, Morrison would most likely get no more than a fine and/or community service.
