40th anniversary of Jim Morrison’s death

Over the weekend fans gathered together in Paris to commemorate the event and honor Jim’s life and work. The commemoration began Saturday evening on July 2 at the Lézard King bar with a gig by the German Doors tribute band Stoned Immaculate.

On July 3, along with a multitude of fans, Ray and Robby visited Jim’s grave in Père Lachaise in the morning. Throughout the day fans sang Doors songs at the graveside, while others hung out at the Renaissance bar located just outside the cemetery on the rue de Repos.

After the cemetery closed, fans dispersed to attend one of the two gigs that evening: Ray and Robby at the Bataclan and The Doors Alive at the Cigale.
