Jim Morrison: Paris or Los Angeles?

He’s still hot, he’s still sexy, and he’s still dead, resting in Pere Lachaise cemetery in the 20th arrondisement in Paris. I first visited his grave in 1986 (15 years after he was interred there), then again in 2004. And he still draws crowds.

RIP Jim- read the Doors' lyrics on the neighboring mausoleum.

The Morrison Hotel, featured on the cover of the Doors album Morrison Hotel, is still in downtown LA, although it finally closed its doors (ha ha, no pun intended) in 2007.

Can you believe this is the Morrison Hotel today?

And 1812 Rothdell Trail in Laurel Canyon, where Jim lived with Pamela Courson, is still there, better known to Doors’ fans as … Love Street.

Jim Morrison in Venice Beach- a topic for another post!
