The Doors were touring Europe in the summer of 1968 with Jefferson Airplane. On Sept. 15, they were scheduled to play the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam. During the Jefferson Airplane’s set The Canned Heat singer Bob Hite gave Jim Morrison a lump of hashish which he decided to swallow and, as a consequence, in a few minutes he collapsed.
The hospital he was taken to was managed by nuns, and they were quite embarassed on his arrival. When Jim came round and saw all these nuns around him, thought he had died and was into heaven. His friend Babe Hill says: “Jim told a funny story about that because these nuns knew what he had done and why he was in there. They’re in there changing his linen and not allowing him any privacy.”
