There’s a ‘tale’ deep in the heart of the internet that you once ‘gonked’ Jim Morrison the head with a hammer when you both were in kindergarden in Florida! I know,I know; “Too weird to be true”. But, perhaps, you can shed some truth to this weird and (IMO) funny rumor!

Yes – in New Mexico (another story altogether) – in a fight where he had the advantage by pulling my hair, I did use a hammer from an adjacent table top to defend myself. However, we got into more trouble together with adults than we ever did with each other – a tradition that continued well into our own adult lives, although separately.
