The Lizard King’s Thing

In 1969, on stage in Miami, history was made when Jim Morrison, lead singer with popular rock combo The Doors, performed the first recognised ‘wardrobe malfunction’. The self-proclaimed Lizard King may or may not have been completely wasted when he decided to introduce the audience to ‘little Jim’, but either way he was arrested a few days later and threatened with jail, but cleverly avoided prosecution by dying. In 2010, Jim was granted a posthumous pardon by the state of Florida for his alleged flashing, which must have made him feel much better.
