    The doctor does exist. I saw an old interview with him somewhere years ago. Wish I could remember where though. With the advent of the internet, I'm sure it's out there somewhere if one of our top-notch detectives would like to take a stab at finding it. I would but I've got quite the full plate lately.
    .

    Life goes on.

    somewhere I read when they showed up all they found was a coffin with his supposed body in it and a death certificate. Now I also heard they never could find the doctor who signed the death Certificate?

    I kind of find that hard to believe though. Makes for a good mystery though.

    I've heard that too. Surely someone saw it; they didn't just toss him out a window and into a box, I hope.

    Yep I heard Pamela was the only one to see him dead. And the doctor. I guess they showed up at the apartment where he was staying and the coffin was in the apartment?

    I do find this all hard to believe though.

    i have heard the only ones to see the body were the doc, Pam, and whomever handled it--meaning the funeral director. which i guess what led Ray Manzerick to say in an interview i saw some years back: "none of us ever saw Jim after he died" or something like that.
    Lou: You know what? You've got spunk.Mary: Well, yes…Lou: I hate spunk.

    See that always leaves like a little bit of doubt. I wish they would peek in the coffin and see if he is really in there!

    Do you know if they found the doc that signed the death certificate?

    Okay I was reading a new book on The death of Jim Morrison and I guess the doctor who signed it does exist he just never would speak about what happened.

    And yes his coffin was at the apartment for a few days before burial. So Pamela was the only one to see him other than the Doctor.

    I can't remember who but one of Jim's friends stayed in the apartment with Pamela for a few days until they buried Jim and he never even thought about peeking in the coffin until after they buried Jim.

    The Death Certificate says heart attack they said was caused by a blood clot I guess he was dangling out a window somewhere a couple weeks before going to paris and fell and that could have caused the heart attack by some type of blood build up from the fall?

    But an unnamed source said he OD'd on Pamela's herion and the heart Attack was a cover story? I am not sure why a doctor would go along with a cover up?

    Its just weird they brought the coffin to the apartment and put him in it and left him laying around for a few days.

    I was reading a different book the other day at the bookstore and one of the theory's why Jim went to Paris was he was a marked man by our government. According to a memo that he was told about.

    They wanted him either imprisoned or killed.

    Stephen Davis' book answers all of the questions regarding Morrison's death. You can just skip to the last chapter which details Morrison's last days in Paris.

    I think that is one of the two books I was reading at the book store? I know one talked about how they kept bringing Dry Ice to the apartment so he would not decay so much in the hot weather. I heard Pamela slept by his dead body one night as well.

    I have that book too, interesting read. Love the doors, collect many things on Morrison including a t shirt I wear the shit out of each week lol. Just last year drove past someones house and they had all these things out the front lawn to give away, snagged 2 great framed Morrison posters! Love the song 'my eyes have seen you'

    Can't go without some pics, can we?

    Is it true? Is such a contract even legal? I don't know. But I tend to believe Agnès Varda.
    Well, if he faked his death...that type of contract would be completely within bounds...I know this will open wide debate, but for him, the ultimate theatrical move would be for the hero to die...so it's a plausible hypothesis, but that out of the way, if that new story is true, he's not the only rock star to die on the toilet.

    But I do believe the night-club death thing.

    Maybe Oliver Stone should re-write the ending to his movie!
    Stone could try to get Stephen King's permission to use part of The Stand. One of the main characters swore that he saw Jim while he was working at a gas station. The character told his wife that a long-haired guy with a familiar looking face pulled in for some gas en route to some roadhouses, etc. in New Orleans. Hank Williams Sr.'s music was blaring on the car's radio. The longer the guy talked to 'Jim' the more he was convinced that he was indeed speaking with Mr. Mojo Risin.

I definitely recommend reading her book that I mentioned above and checking out her blog, she is a truly fascinating person.
    I don't think she had anything at all to gain from her relationship with Jim, she already had a successful career and isn't the kind of gal who would feel the dire need for a man to complete her. She truly loved him for who he was, an intelligent and gentle soul, wounded so very many times. This was something she could recognize, even if others did not.

    Sparkles,
    HippieMama
    HippieMama, where is Patricia's blog located? I'd like to read it.

    Everytime I hear his voice, it literally sends chills up my spine. He had such a wonderful and powerful voice, and a sexual presence that's hard to recreate.
    Count on it, pee-drinking crap face!

    Just a thought about Jim....was there ever a major rock star who was less about the bling? Jim didn't seem to care about cars....no country estate like his Brit counterparts.....hell, did he even have a home? I dunno, I kind of like this about him.

    His biggest indulgence seemed to be Pamela and her whims....

    Absolutely true - I think of the reasons was that he probably knew he wasn't going to be around long. As a huge Door's fan, I've heard and read almost everything there is to read about the guy.

    The bottom line is that here was a guy that was drinking up to 3 bottles of scotch a day for an extended period of time and snorting smack - not a good mix.

    Now, from what everyone was saying about his days in Paris, he wasn't drinking that much while over there, but he was still drinking and snorting smack. ALso, he was having these nasty couphing fits (he was a smoking fiend too). The guy wasn't at all healthy. If you listen to the last album "LA Woman" - the guys voice was hammered.

    Regardless of where he died (whether you believe the rumour that he died in a clubs toilet and dragged back to the apartment...or OD'ing in the tub) - Pamela was going to protect him as best she could. It was probably her heroin that he snorted anyways.

    Happened to be reading Camille Paglia's column on Slate today....discussion about how the Doors have to be the greatest American rock band....simply becuase all the other greats--Beatles, STones, Who, Zep, etc--were Brits. Only others that come close are the Beach Boys.
    Works for me, who are we missing?

    Wow...great question!! Actually, my wife were having this argument ...errr...discussion a few weeks ago.

    Here are my top British and American picks:

    British
    1. Gotta have the Beatles first - they really kicked it off
    2. The Who
    3. Zeppelin
    4. Pink Floyd
    5. Cream
    6. Stones - Really...they suck live but they ARE the Stones...

    American
    1. It's hard to argue against The Doors because of Morrison and all the notoriety he brought them. Talk about an original band!!
    2. The Eagles
    3. Skynrd
    4. Nirvana
    5. Van Halen
    6. Guns ANd Roses
    7. BEach Boys
    8. Gratedul Dead

    Good lists! On the Brits, I would switch Who and Zep, after many arguments with myself on that very question. Also I would probably put Stones at #2, just because most people would.

    As for the yanks, it is interesting that no one band jumps out as the undisputed, all-purpose #1, as the Beatles do. I think our equivalent is Elvis, rather than a group.

    Though I think many would argue AGAINST the Doors as #1, I do think they fulfill most of the requirements. Biggest problem, Jim was so dark (bless him). But really an amazing body of work.

    Wait....wait....what about AEROSMITH?

    Just to finish this off on a Jim note, tip of the hat to his family for maintaining their silence and dignity.

    Well, my friend....you make some great points. We have the same argument about Zeppelin and The Who - I would almost say they are neck and neck - the ONLY reason I put the Who ahead of them was because they hit it big first. But as for the band that was more consistently successful in the 70's?? No question it was Zeppelin.

    I also agree that many would argue against the Doors as #1 - they probably would make the top 10 or 15 in any "official" list - but I would definitely put them ahead of Aerosmith...who I agree should also be up there somewhere.

    Now....as a yank I have no problem saying that our best bands in all honesty can't hold a candle to what the Brits brought in the "golden era" of Rock.

    Like you said, it's hard to pick a number 1 American act...while it's easy to pick several British acts that could arguably be Number 1.

    All I know is that we are all lucky that we had these talented people around to enjoy.

    From my understanding, Pam was his legal wife due to common law laws at the time in California. Patricia was his wife according to wiccan law I don't know if the handfasting was ever legally recognized at the time it was performed. I think Jim and Pam really "got" each other similar narcisistic self destructive characters that they were.
    I think we want to believe something more magical and romantic an ending happening to Jim than dying in the bathroom alone, kinda like JFK being taken down by some huge conspiracy than one disgruntled person, it also makes for better story telling too.
    Are you a badfish too?

    i remember reading that Pamela had Jim's corpse in bed with her for more than 2 days and they (doctor, and other people i dont exactly remember who, maybe the police...) had to persuade her to let them put the corpse in a plastic bag with ice because it had started to smell.

    That second photo of Brandon Lee looks more like him. The angle, I guess.

    I also was spooked by the Jim's ghost photo, but have the same concerns about the centering of the photo that were already brought up. It looks as though the photo was taken with the intention that the area where the ghost image appears should be the focus, not the man standing by Jim's grave. Otherwise, that man would be in the center, and you'd see little, if any, of the ghost image.

    As far as Pamela, I read somewhere that her family intended to bury her in Pere-Lachaise, but didn't because she died in the USA, and it was too complicated to ship a body overseas for burial. Not sure why they had her cremated, though, if their original plan was to bury her body (not ashes) with Jim. If they planned to bury her ashes with Jim, couldn't someone have hopped a plane to Paris with them? Seems easier than shipping a body, but I don't know if that's something you can do. I also wonder if they cremated her because trying to make the arrangements to ship her body to Paris took too long, and they "had" to-maybe they didn't have her embalmed? It's not like her death was expected, she OD'd.

    Yeah, i think the same, it was quite odd ....
    I dont know how things worked back then, but now you can put somebody's ashes on a pillow or even in a cookie box and travel with them.... Courtney Love used to say that she always travelled with Kurt's ashes...

    Well I know the experience was 2/3 British but I think Jimi should count in here somewhere. Band of gypsys was amazing! Even if they didn't last long. Buddy Miles was a KILLER vocalist, and one hell of a drummer.
    AND ZZ TOP!
    Anywho, I agree with the others who said the ghost photo seems fishy, the way it's centered on where the "ghost" is just doesn't make sense to me. Stranger things have hapened though.

    So Pamela slept with Jim's body in bed with her eh? That's just out there....I mean I love my old man more than anything but...yeah. No thanks on the sleeping with a corpse. But then again Im sure she was all sorts of heroin'd out eh?

    Considering how bloated he was and screwed up on drugs and booze he was when he died, imagine the condition he would be in today if he were alive. Not pretty I expect.

    Velvet Underground should be somewheres.

    not why i called though. They say anytime a magazine needs a boost,put a picture of Jimi or Jim on the cover.

    last month at B&N,there on a cover of a mag i had never seen,FATE,with a psychedlic picture of Mr. Mojo,which i purchased,of course.

    I am a huge Doors fan. I have a movie on VHS called "Beyond The Doors". Basically, the premise of the movie is that Janis and Jimi were killed by a government agent. While the hitman was on a plane to France to kill Morrison, he heard on the radio that Jim had died. Turns out that he did fake his death and "retired" to a monastary and became a monk.

    The movie is also known as "Down on Us". heres a link to it on imd.com http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0087171/

    What i find strange is that 38 years later,the people who were directly involved still refuse to talk about what really happened.

    Cool

    As a HUGE Doors fan in High School, at one point I could say I had read nearly all of the Doors/Jim bios, but that has been so long ago and so many more have come out...(I thought I heard rumor of "Angels Dance, Angels Die" being discovered to be mostly fiction...what's the word on that one?)

    In June of 1999 I got the one thing I had longed for for so long, to travel to Paris and visit Jim. Unfortunately it was with a tour group (my opportunity had came only because I had taken French in my senior year, we had teachers as chaperones, etc...they did let us smoke and drink though, just cigarettes though, god my best friend and I would have loved to have some grass with us, but we were too paranoid to even attempt to smuggle in a tiny bit...but anyway...)

    But it just so happened that the last full day of the trip (the day I had been chomping at the bit for) was in Paris, June 23rd, 1999, my 18th birthday...I remember walking up to the grave and just being floored inside from the sadness that surrounded it, I started crying instantly, and had to take a minute to collect myself so I could get the photos and rubbing I wanted.

    There was a cemetery worker standing guard next to the tomb, I guess to make sure we didn't vandalize the grave or smoke any of that grass we didn't bring with us...and there was a guy taking footage of the grave with his home videro camera, and the guard kept fussing at him in french that there was no video allowed...and there was NO graffiti anywhre in sight, I was shocked. What a beautiful cemetery, god you need at least a whole afternoon to really take that place in.

    Here's one of my most treasured photographs, taken on my 18th birthday:
    My visit with Jim.jpg


    I had got ahold of some grave rubbing paper before my trip, but my silly ass forgot it at home (that's the grass for 'ya) So I had to make do with a piece of plain paper from my hotel room, the back side of a sheet detailing how to use the phone to call out, when check in/out times were, etc. and turns out it was way smaller than the bronze plaque on the tomb, so all I had room for was MORRISON

    I find the whole story about Jim dying at the circus to be entirely plausible, but I'm afraid we will never really really know the whole truth about Jim's death, but I think in a strange way, it is somehow fitting for his death to be mysterious.


    Ironically, years later, after relocating from Ohio to Tennessee, I met the man I ended up marrying...when he was in high school, he had a Doors fanatic girl chasing after him (he wasn't interested, allegedly) who insisted that he even looked like Jim in the face...his (and now my) last name?

    Morrison.

    Just my 2 cents-I believe Jim died at the circus, and was brought back to the apartment. There may have been an attempt to resisitate him, but he OD'd, and died. I have never believed Jim faked his death, Pamela Courson was everything to him, and he would have never let her become what she did after his death. She took up prostitution to get drug money, and was a total mess until she died.I read Patricia Kenneely's book, and IMO a lot of it is fabricated. I only think she was a hanger-on, a quick piece of ass for Jim. She had nothing in the looks department, and Jim and Pam were soul mates. Hand-fasting? Probably in her dreams. Jim loved Pam, even if she was a drug addict, and if he were to marry, it would have been her. I DO think Pam was responsible for Jim's death, the smack he was said to have snorted was hers. No wonder she wanted to hide his death, and waited to call anyone. If the person I loved was vomiting blood, I'd sure as hell attempt to get help-unless I had something to hide. We won't ever know for sure, just my opinion.

    I visited his grave back in 1997 with a friend of mine. We brought some vodka and Red Bull with us and we toasted on Jim.

    So close to the truth you're almost there.

    From what I know. Obviously.

    Really? Come on, Axl, spill!! These were things I learned from reading about Jim. I do feel Pamela was responsible for his death, not intentionally, but by accident. No wonder she was a wreck until she died. Hard to live with that on your shoulders.

    Is that the plot of the movie?
    What a funny pile of bullshit!
    Please tell me that nobody is taking that seriously.
    Is it that hard to accept that his own lifestyle killed him?

    It surprised me how small Jim's grave is. He didn't seem like a short man to me. Did they squish him in or something? anyone know?

    Jim Morrison was a god...Both Mr. Jangles and I are huge Doors fans. I often wonder what his music would sound like today if he was still with us?
