PENSACOLA, Fla. (PNJ.com) -- When it comes to rock star real estate, conceptionalties may not be as alluring as the final resting place of '60s music legend JimMorrison of The Doors.
The Pensacola home thought to be where the iconoclastrocker and poet was conceived in 1943 is still on the auction block despite aflurry of interest at an estate sale held Saturday.
By the end of the day, none of the eight bids for thehouse even came close to the price that Jim Morrison's second cousin, BruceMorrison III, set for the house that has been in his family since 1932.
He wouldn't disclose his bottom line for selling. But,on Monday, he said of the bids: "I got none worth a damn."
He hoped the rocker connection would have sent bidsbreaking through his minimum amount.
After all, fans flock to his cousin's grave site inPere Lachaise Cemetery in Paris, making it one of the city's most-visitedtourist attractions. In July 1971, Jim Morrison died in Paris at the age of 27of an alleged heroin overdose.
The house's close proximity to downtown Pensacola, justa block off Palafox Street, would be perfect for a restaurant, a bed andbreakfast or a Morrison Hotel with a rock 'n' roll theme, Bruce Morrison IIIsaid.
With its history as a 1920s speakeasy, a bar also wouldbe fitting, he said.
Despite the lack of viable bids, Morrison said thehouse was swarming Saturday after word spread about the auction of the home'scontents, including a number of antiques.
Many people crowded into the basement where Jim'sparents, Rear Adm. George Stephen and Clara Virginia Morrison, lived in anapartment when George was in Naval flight school in Pensacola in 1943.
According to family stories, that's where JimMorrison's life began.
Donna Moore of Ellis & Moore Pensacola Estate Saleliquidators was overwhelmed by the number of people who showed up on Saturdaylooking for mementos.
"There were a lot of Jim Morrison fans," she said. "Iwas walking from upstairs to downstairs constantly, and so many people weretaking photos. We heard some people say they just wanted to see the house JimMorrison was conceived in."
Two people in their late 60s, about the age JimMorrison would be now, approached Moore telling stories of playing with Jim whenhe visited as a child.
"One lady came in and said; 'Where is Jim Morrison'sstuff? I need to buy that stuff,' " Moore said.
None of Jim Morrison's personal belongings were in thehouse.
But if Bruce Morrison sells the house, he plans tothrow in a video, showing Jim's mother, Clara, holding Bruce as a baby whilewalking around the backyard of the house. She was pregnant with Jim at thetime.
