Jim Morrison's grave is located in Pere LaChaise, the largest cemetery in Paris. Aside from that of Jim Morrison, one can also view the graves of author Balzac, actress Sarah Bernhardt, Fulgence Bienvenue (creator of Paris's famous Metro), composers Georges Bizet and Frederic Chopin, painter Camille Pissarro, author Oscar Wilde, and about 70,000 other dearly departed souls. Entrance to Pere LaChaise is free and the gates are open from 8:00 a.m. to dusk seven days a week. After dark, you're going to have to scale a rather large wall to get in, which I wouldn't recommend, unless you're just dying (no pun intended) to get a glimpse inside a Parisian jail or get slapped with a hefty fine. For more information about Pere LaChaise, please see the question about the largest park in Paris.
A little more than 8 years.
Jim Morrison recorded "Orange County Suite" with two Paris street musicians in mid-1971. It is the last known performance of any kind by the former lead singer of "The Doors".
On December 12, 1970, Morrison had what is called a 'breakdown' on stage and refused to sing the rest of the concert. It is not recorded which song he was singing at the time, though he smashed his microphone stand into the stage with such force that the platform below was destroyed. This was the last "live" performance by "The Doors" who were preparing to record the album "L.A. Woman" in the studio.
In fact, L.A. Woman was recorded, including the smash single "Riders on the Storm"... which went on to have a mystical status after his death. The mellow, disturbing lyrics seemed to foreshadow Jim's death with images of an accident, a killer and a long holiday with family. So, the last hit single was "Riders on the Storm", though L.A. Woman also produced several much played songs, including the title cut.
The last song COULD NOT HAVE BEEN "The end", as it was a live rambling that was released on the group's very first self-titled lp in 1967 or so.
Jim Morrison was with Pamela Courson at the time in Paris. Why he was buried there, I don't know. But I amd guessing it was 1, b/c he died there. 2, b/c he loved Paris, or 3. B/c of the cemetery he was buried in, held many of his inspirations.
James Morrison is Jim Morrison. Jim is short for James. So the lead singer of the band, The Doors, is Jim (birth name James) Morrison. Jim's dad's name was George Morrison, who died, in 1989.
I believe that Josh Turner sang this song. The name of it is Your Man or I Want To Be Your Man.
because he was living in Paris when he died

He overdosed on heroin in a hotel room in Paris, France. Pamela Courson found him dead in a tub of bloody water. His nose was bleeding.
It is generally believed that "friends" had carried him from a local club where Morrison had scored too strong of Heroin and ingested it, killing him.
The friends placed him in a tub of cold water, a frequent "rescue attempt" for junkies who had "O.D.d" on heroin. The effort was unsuccessful.
The exact cause of death and circumstances remain a topic of endless discussion.
Nope, both are singers, but they are not related.
They are the same person, his real name was James Douglas Morrison, However, he went by Jim.
he might not be. The only people who saw Jim morrisons body in that coffin was his ex wife and Doctor. First of all his wifes long gone and his doctor refuses to have interviews with people discussing Jim morrisons death. Which is odd because usually when people want to hide things they will ignore the problem. So most likely he might be still alive, but we have no clue only the real Jim Morrison is the one who can come out and say that he was never dead. If you think about it Jim really has nothing to hide at all? Other than that French Government that was after him. But other than that Jim Morrison was and still is the greatest song writer that ever lived. I honestly don't belive anyone will ever be as big as he was. The stuff he did was crazy! but really i would like to say, Jim Morrison if your still out there and alive and if your reading this i would like you to know that coming out and saying that your alive again can change the entire world again like you did in the 60's So just think about that Jim if your reading this.
Hitler and Jim Morrison (lead singer from the band The Doors)
hard to say, are you talking from all avenues: album sales(8 track, cassette, cds, 45's and albums) as well as concerts, tee shirt sales, photos and so on?
some people think the beatles became wealthy, but not true, not off of concerts and record sales. they were taxed 95% on all earnings, and only made about $10 million a year from 1964 to 1968, and after taxes on that 10 mill, they were only left with $400,000, and then their manager got 25% of that, leaving the beatles with $300,000 to split four ways. their manager back then ripped them off, they only got one penny for every 45 record sold, and remember these concerts were back in the early to mid 60's when tickets only cost $5.
from 68 till they broke up in 1970 they did better with a new manager and a new contract with better earnings on their sales, but when they broke up none of them were really very wealthy, except for paul, with john a close second because of all the songs they wrote or co-wrote.
the wealthiest was and still is paul, but not necessarily from his record sales, because he paid over 7 million dollars for a huge song catalog, which is now said to be valued at over $500 million and now brings in, in royalties, about $45 million a year.
paul probably made more money with wings than he did with the beatles.
top rock band on the money list, either the stones or u2, bring in over a 1/2 billion dollars a year on tour. (gross, not net $$)
I think he had twins - a boy and girl. I remember, years ago, in the early 90s, watching a program called "The Word" on Channel Four in which the twins were interviewed.
And if you remember in the film the journalist who he had the affair with told him she was pregnant. I think this was the mother of the kids, and I think they live in France.
Yes, he did. His name is Chris Bangs Rolling stone even did a piece on it a couple of years ago. Apparently his has a lot of problems. which also contain Bob Marley's at the time little know sun Damian who's mother apparently was a member of the hotel staff Bob Marley stayed at for a night or two while on tour. They also featured a couple of other start but I can't recall who they were.
No, they are rumored to be related, but mostly because of their similar physical appearance and singing voice.
His father was a strict Marine Corps veteran of World War II and the Korean War who worked as a television repairman.
