(Newser) – One of Jim Morrison's childhood homes could someday be turned into a historical site. At least, that's what a group of fans is pushing for, the AP reports. The Doors' lead singer lived in Albuquerque from ages 12 to 14 while his dad worked at a local Air Force base, and fans want the home preserved. It does have a new owner, Thelma Lue, who tells KOAT that Morrison might still be hanging around: She says her granddaughter once heard organ music coming from a bedroom in the house late at night. "Living in Albuquerque for a while, I think he should have a spot here," says one historian pushing for the historical site, but Lue won't comment on that idea. (Kurt Cobain's childhood home went up for sale in 2013.)
