It's a nice romantic notion that somebody was worried enough about three historic rock 'n' roll greats to kill them all. And I also say it's a bullsh*t notion. You are certainly not NEARLY the first to put forth this theory, there have been many, many before you in books, magazines, etc.........."The Curse of the 'J' " being one book I remember (a short dime store paperback which I never bothered reading). Fact is, Janis was found in a motel room dead from a heroin overdose, Hendrix from a lethal mixture of alcohol and downers. With Morrison I don't really know the circumstances but everyone knows he had been an extremely hard core alcoholic nearly his entire adult life; who knows what else he did to put himself over the edge. Nice notion that any of the three needed some type of conspirator to meet their maker, but the overwhelming facts are that they got there entirely on their own. And why, tell me, would anyone be so worried about Janis, Jimi or Jim? None of the three was significantly politically active at all. John Lennon, now that's a different story, and there's a recent film about how the government was worried about him. But we all know that a deranged assh*le did HIM in.

"None of the three was significantly politically active at all."

Whoa, hold on there brother! Think about it, "Machine Gun" and "Five To One" are just two examples of extremely political songs by Hendrix and Morrison, and besides any specific political content in their music, both Jimi and Jim were explicitly outspoken in their criticism of the existing social order. Jimi in particular spoke out about Black Power and did events with the Black Panthers at a time when that alone would make you an enemy of the state.

Don't get me wrong--I'm with you in thinking that the conspiracy theories are over the top, and I agree that Janis wasn't very political. However, it's no stretch to say that Jimi Hendrix and Jim Morrison would have been considered VERY threatening by the powers that be at the time.

I love conspiracy theories!! But am I missing something? What was said? all three murdered, by who?
From what I gather from your post and the policical statements the Government?
I wouldn't put anything past them in those days, or anyday.
I agree with Rob J. Jimi and Jim were more policically outspoken, but Janis, while maybe not outspoken directly, had a major influence on the sex and drug attitude of the generation which directly coralates to a anti-war sentiment.
Elvis? Why did you edit?!!!
and BTW...love your name...LOL

I ask what SkyPuppy asked: Why did you (IAReallyElvis) delete your original post? Are you afraid of a sincere conflicting viewpoint? I am respectful of other viewpoints, especially RobJohnson's mention of Hendrix' Black Panther involvement, but I still doubt that either Hendrix or Morrison had a level of political activity significant enough to make them a target of the U.S. government or anyone else. Let me clarify that further: I do not believe that either Hendrix, Morrison, or Joplin for that matter ever took it to the level where politics became their primary focus. Lennon DID at one time in his life, and that's why he became a target.

Morrison was more of a nihilist. My understanding is that Hendrix was not overly political and loved all men as brothers equally and that he hated being pigeon holed as a "black artist" or pressure being brought on him by black radicals.

I have a friend who insists Duane Allman was murdered by rednecks in Macon because he threatened their rascist social order. I asked him how the driver could have known Duane would be their at the time and why he would not have just been shot or something else but logic is meaningless to conspiracy buffs.
