    The former home of the late Doors frontman Jim Morrison was damaged in an arson attack in Los Angeles late last week. This was just one of the 19 arson attacks that took place in Hollywood that night. The fire engulfed portions of the house and nearby residences. Yikes.

    The residence was erected in 1922 and Morrison resided there with girlfriend Pamela Courson. The singer wrote albums like Waiting for the Sun and portions of The Soft Parade at this location. So it was a place of rock history.

    What is your favorite Doors album?
