PENSACOLA — Bidders will soon have the chance to buy a Victorian-style home in Florida with a connection to Jim Morrison, the famed frontman of The Doors.

The Pensacola News Journal (http://tinyurl.com/bxdnfvm) reports the home is owned by Bruce Morrison, a second cousin of Jim Morrison. He is now selling the home and many of the relics inside, and is taking bids at an estate sale Saturday.

Bruce Morrison says the rocker's parents once lived in the home. He claims that, according to family lore, Jim Morrison was conceived there. He says he has video of Jim Morrison's mother in the home's backyard, holding him while she's pregnant.

Bruce Morrison says he was born in March 1943, about nine months before his famous cousin. He says the two met only a few times, mostly at family reunions.
