The Lizard King is a nick name fans
of Jim Morrison
gave him during the high of his career.
Some say it is a reference
to his penis
, as he was a very sexual entity
, although this is not so true..
Growing up, Jim was an army brat
. He moved from city to city with his family and did not have much time to make friends. As such, he read a lot. Sparked by living in Arizona
, Jim began to read about lizards
. He was very fascinated with the animals and liked them very much. Especially interesting to him was the fact that lizards are a completly independent animal. If you removed all of them from the earth it would not affect the eco system
one bit. This obscure fact reveals the origins of Jim's odd nickname.
