Submitted by jane on Thu, 07/04/2019 - 13:49

Many artists rarely get the kind of exposure afforded by their own deaths. Thereby opening themselves up to the kind of coverage in the media unheard of before, certainly to cult artists such as Ian Curtis from Joy Division or even to someone like David Bowie who was surely the biggest cult artist of them all. Queen are another good example of a band who were huge when at their peak in 1975-1979 but when Freddie passed away they became even more popular. Unfortunately in most of these cases the music deteriorates and quality is lost but however a new found popularity is won.

Featuring classic Doors tracks ‘Riders on The Storm’ and ‘Love Her Madly’, LA Woman would be their final album with frontman Jim Morrison, who died three months later aged just 27.
