Jim Morrison grave - Paris

Jim Morrison grave

James Douglas Morrison grave Père Lachaise Cemetery Review

One of the most known graves at the Père Lachaise cemetery is that of Doors-member Jim Morrison.

Jim went to Paris in 1970 with Pamela Courson. He was upset by the lack of seriousness with which he was taken as a poet. He did not get the wanted inspiration and became severely depressed. On July 3, 1971 Jim was found dead in the bathtub of their Parisian apartment.

His grave became an attraction for his fans and 25 years later at his dying day the police had to use teargas to spread the crowd.

Each year the "Fête de la Lune" is celebrated, especial by the Chinese community of Paris.

The day changes every year as the festival is held at the eights full moon of the year, traditional a harvest festival.

Expect shows with dancers in traditional Chines costumes and much more.
