Famous poets and their favourite drinks

Jim Morrison

Jim MorrisonAlthough famous for being the lead singer with The Doors, Morrison was also a songwriter and a poet. He was well-known for his spoken word and poetry passages while the band played live. Although he died when he was just 27, from a suspected heroin overdose, Morrison also developed a taste for alcohol in his short life. Morrison once said: “It’s like gambling somehow. You go out for a night of drinking and you don’t know where you’re going to end up the next day. It could work out good or it could be disastrous. It’s like the throw of the dice.”
His favourite drink was whisky, although there are differing reports as to whether Scotch or Bourbon (and particularly Jack Daniel’s) was his preferred choice. The one constant report is that whatever Morrison was drinking, he drank a lot.
