From the Exciting New Collection, Most Wanted, come these vintage mugshots of 12 various well known people, having fallen foul of the law. Each piece has a story behind it, but, in the words of Louis 'the real appeal of these images is that everybody loves a bad boy'.

Jim Morrison was born on December 8, 1943 in Melbourne, Florida. Not much is known about his early years, although he claims that he began writing poetry in sixth grade. Jim moved to Los Angeles in the early 1960s. One day at the beach, he ran into Ray Manzarek, a former classmate from UCLA, who was a keyboardist in a struggling rock band. When Jim showed Ray some of his poems, he insisted to Jim that they should put together a band for him to sing his poems. Ray and Jim recruited Robbie Krieger as a guitarist and John Densomore at the drummer and began calling themselves the Doors.

On December 9, 1967, Jim was arrested onstage during a concert in New Haven, Connecticut for attempting to incite a riot by telling the crowd that a policeman had sprayed him and journalist Patricia Kennealy with mace backstage before the concert
