What if Themis was left open?

I understand that Themis was a money loser for Jim. A time waster for Pam.

What if Pam lived and kept Themis open? Would it turn into a Jim Shrine. 10's of thousands flocking there. I would think it would of became a huge money maker.

or

What if Pam turned Themis into a bar? Keeping Jim's office area upstairs for people to look at.

Thousands of fans go to Jims grave and the doors old office to find out Jim's roots. Not to mention Love street.

I understand that Jim unloaded it for nothing to friends or was it a sister in-law.

The location is great for doors fans. Maybe even a museum.of the doors?

Themis could of rose from the ashes. imo

It's on the Doors tour. It's now a rug store. It's right around the corner to the Doors workshop. It's on La Cienega blvd.

I think Themis was more of a drain on Jim Morrisons bottom line. That is probably why they decided to close the shop. If it was successful it would have stayed open, or they could've sold it. It was a good idea, and I'm sure a tax write off, but not enough to stay open. Running a small business is hard work!

I went there a couple of times with Danny S. it was a small shop. One time Jim setting in the back and Pam running around doing things. Back then it was like any hippie shop incense burning, wall's had cloth on them. Pam was always nice to us Danny knew her I didn't.

Hi DW, thanks for sharing and welcome back. I've enjoyed reading the back-threads on this forum of your times in 60's LA, so any other memories you have would be a delight for me and plenty of others.

When I started going up to the office (Doors) with Danny, it was right when "Morrison Hotel" came out. I went to my first Doors concert with Danny 2/7/70, they played at the Long Beach Arena. I remember that because it was my first date in high school with my new girlfriend. Danny and his date Kim and my girl Debbie had the best seats, four front row and center seats. Jim was late for the show, he pulled up in back in a cab. Danny and I did the fliers for the concert up and down Sunset and all over. We had to be about sixteen years old at the time. I could go on, but I'm not much of a writer as you can see. Thanks, David

How would you rate Pam's level of intelligence? The movie called her an ornament. To me on that one interview I heard her. She sounded intelligent.

Also it has been said on here that DANNY really was not friends with Jim. You can please tell us the truth.

Good question regarding Jim and Danny's friendship.

I hope you do tell us more! We need more stories! :)

If you look on YouTube, Ben Fong Torres of Rolling Stone did an interview with Jim Morrison at the Norton Ave. house. You can hear Pam talk to him and Jim.

She had a very sweet, soft spoken voice.

Nice one. Needless to say, I wish it had been me. Morrison Hotel was always the album said to be the best round here at the turn of the 80s - not sure why but maybe we only latched on to the Doors at the third album and the crowd I was with preferred guitar orientated music.

I suppose Bill Siddons asked you to do the fliers - did you do any other jobs of errands for The Doors? Many thanks for the memories.

This is so true I knew Danny better than anyone growing up. I said this once before that Danny DIDN"T know Jim as Danny writes about. I had members from this site freaking out and saying it was B.S. One thing is for sure you will never see a photo of Jim and Danny taken together. If they where that close you would think there would be many. Danny was a good friend and yes we would go up to The Doors office see the guys talk to Bill S. and do the scrapbook. We would put up fliers for concerts and hang out some. Remember Danny was writing a book some true a lot not.

I can't remember now, but I'm sure it was Bill that got us the tickets. What's funny is that I knew Bill's wife Cheri before he did. Talk about a small world, Cheri was a airline stewardess for Continental airlines in 1967. Cheri lived with two other girls who worked for the airlines, we all lived in Playa Del Rey (not together). Danny and I did the scrapbook together and open a lot of fan mail and yes all kinds of letters and things. We didn't drive so didn't do much on errands unless it was in walking distance. Thanks time for work, David
