About me

Originally from Chicago, I live and work in Paris.

A music lover from an early age, I grew up listening to classic rock on the Loop, metal on WVVX, house on WBMX and rap on WHPK. And blues, because, well, it’s Chicago.

On my first trip to Paris in 1986, the first place I wanted to visit was Jim Morrison’s grave. Here’s the photo from that visit.

I ended up moving to France in 1990. Moved by the beauty and history of Père Lachaise, I never stopped going back. Join me on Instagram for more on Père Lachaise @perelachaiseparis.

Why this website?

Like many of you, I wondered what really happened to Jim in Paris. This website is the result of my research.

There are many unanswered questions surrounding Jim’s death. If you have any information or corrections to the information on this website, please let me know.
