    The Doors' frontman Jim Morrison is to get a posthumous pardon for an indecent exposure conviction in Florida after he pulled what a bandmate called "a mind trip on the audience, and they totally fell for it".

    Governor Charlie Crist secured a commitment on Wednesday for the second of two votes needed from other members of the state's Board of Executive Clemency to approve the pardon.

    Morrison was appealing against the conviction when he was found dead in a Paris bath in 1971. The meeting comes a day after the singer would have been 67.

    Mr Crist, who along the three-member cabinet serve as the clemency board, cannot issue a pardon on his own. Approval is required by the governor and at least two other members.

    Chief financial officer Alex Sink, who was previously undecided, said on Wednesday that she would vote for the pardon.

    She joined agriculture commissioner Charles Bronson who previously declared his support for the idea. Only attorney general Bill McCollum remained uncommitted. All are leaving office on January 4.

    The did-he-or-didn't-he debate has been revived by Mr Crist's interest in the case. Surviving band members say a drunken Morrison teased the Miami crowd, but never exposed himself. "It never actually happened. It was mass hypnosis," said Ray Manzarek, The Doors' keyboard player.

    Manzarek and guitarist Robby Krieger said Morrison's behaviour was influenced by an acting troupe that disrobed during plays. "He was just doing a mind trip - as they would say - a mind trip on the audience and they totally fell for it," Manzarek said.

    Manzarek said Morrison was far more drunk than usual, to the point where they questioned whether he should go on stage. "It was like, 'Oh my goodness Jim, are you sure you can perform?' 'No, no, we're going on, we're going on'," Manzarek recalled.

    Mr Crist began considering a pardon for Morrison in 2007 at the urging of a fan. He says he has doubts about whether Morrison actually exposed himself during the rowdy Miami concert on March 1 1969. Nevertheless Morrison was convicted of public profanity and indecent exposure and sentenced to six months in jail and a 500-dollar fine.

    Manzarek's keyboard skills helped The Doors sell 100m albums


    Ray Manzarek, keyboardist and founder member of the 1960s rock band The Doors, has died aged 74.

    He formed the band with lead singer Jim Morrison in 1965 after a chance meeting in Venice Beach, Los Angeles.

    Manzarek, who had suffered from bile duct cancer for many years, died in a clinic in Rosenheim, Germany, with his wife and brothers at his bedside.

    The Doors found fame in the 1960s with hits such as The End, Break on Through to the Other Side and Hello I Love You.

    They sold more than 100 million albums worldwide and Manzarek became one of the best-known keyboardists of his era, his artistry colouring tracks like Riders on the Storm and Light my Fire.

    The death of Morrison of heart failure in a bath in Paris on 3 July 1971 effectively spelled the end for the band, although Chicago-born Manzarek took on singing duty.

    The front man had moved to the city to write. A doctor's report stated the cause of his death was heart failure aggravated by heavy drinking.

    In his latter years, Manzarek played in other bands and, in 1998, wrote a best-selling memoir, Light My Fire: My Life with The Doors.

    Weird scenes inside the gold mine.
    Rip Ray- he was just as integral as Jim to that immortal band.
    This is the end.

    I suppose when an artist dies, the vultures descend. Check out their stuff, if you weren't around at the time. As good an opportunity as any.
