Fifty years following his departure at age 27 rock music aficionados from France and all over the world visited the Pere-Lachaise cemetery in the Eastern Paris locale where the Door’s legendary frontman rests. 

Fans brought photographs and candles and many burned incense sticks on his grave as cops watched nearby.

Dutuar Platzek, a 50-year-old fan from Halle, Germany visited Jim’s grave along with his old friend Mathias Barthel. It was the duo’s first visit to Pere-Lachaise in over 25 years.

 He says “Jim Morrison and The Doors have been our heroes since we were little kids”. It’s an honour to be here and celebrate Jim’s fiftieth death anniversary”. 

Year after year, the Pere-Lachaise cemetery has become a pilgrimage for Jim’s fans. Crowned for his steely gaze, leather pants, dark lyrics and spectacular stage presentation, Morrison drove the band to multiple greatest hits during the nineties including “Touch Me”, “Riders on the Storm”, “Light My Fire and, “Hello I Love You”.

Michelle was 21 when the legendary rock singer breathes his last, staying in Texas and learning photography. 

Campbell first “July 3rd” Morrison’s death anniversary was in 1989. In those days, the grave was plain and unmarked so one fan has built a wooden cross.

Campbell now lives in Paris and visits the Pere-Lachaise cemetery every year, clicking pictures of Jim’s grave and his fans.

“It’s like people gathering around couches in one’s house, rather than a grave’s, meeting and having a nice chat with each other”. She recounted “It was really beautiful, I still visit as much as I can because it’s just always so lovely.”

In his brief career, Jim became a worldwide celebrity not only for his controversial performances and music but also through his anti-establishment stance, the poetry of his lyrics and the off-stage excesses. 

He moved to Paris in March 1971 and settled in the chic Marais locale near Bastille with his girlfriend Pamela Courson. Pamella was struggling with her heroin addiction at that time.

Morrison was overweight and fighting his own alcohol and drug addictions and relocated to Paris to start fresh. 

Jim was in terrible health, often coughing up blood, which also occurred on July 2nd. Pamella gave him a bath and returned to sleep. One hour later, she woke up to discover Jim’s lifeless body lying in the bathtub of her apartment. It was later reported that Morrison died of a heart attack. 

Morrison now rests at Père Lachaise, along with many other global luminaries such as Edith Piaf, Yves Montand, Oscar Wilde and Balzac.
