Driving down your freeways
Midnight alleys roam
Cops in cars, the topless bars
Never saw a woman so alone

Over my 70+ years of life, I've been to France many times.

 

A few years ago, I toured Pere Lachaise Cemetery in the eastern section of Paris. Many famous folks are laid to rest there. Jim Morrison is buried in the ground there (as opposed to being entombed in a mausoleum). I followed the map I got at the entrance, and when I arrived at the site, the grave was very simple, consisting of granite stone outlining a rectangular area of dirt/pebbles and a rectangular headstone about 3 feet wide and 2 feet tall & deep. Very simple for such a famous person... but there had been a bust of Jim atop the headstone originally, some cretin stole it and it was never replaced.

 

The day I was there, a bottle of Black Jack (with about 2 or 3 shots in it), a couple of skinny joints, and some regular cigarettes and a few flowers were atop the stone.

 

Another grave that was particularly beautiful was that of Chopin, having a striking statue on it.

 

Here are photos (from the internet) of Jim's grave with & without the bust:

 

 

 

As you can see, the original stone was replaced with a nicer one with a bronze plaque after the bust was stolen.

 

The bronze plaque reads: James Douglas Morrison... 1943 - 1971... (and in Greek) True to his own spirit.

You're welcome.

 

I forgot to mention that it was in the middle of a weekday and yet there were 12 or 15 people at the site when I was there.

 

One young lady was weeping quietly.

Interesting story George.  There are a few really good interviews on Youtube with Jim.  As well as commentaries from other band members, mainly Ray.

The Aircraft Carrier U.S.S. Bon Homme Richard, CV-31, Essex class, Was decommissioned on July 2, 1971.  The keynote speech was made by the Admiral whose flagship she had been for many years.  Admiral George Stephen Morrison retired his carrier the day before his son Jim died in Paris. :(

The Doors were an awesome band.

 

This comedic tribute was pretty funny too:
