Jim-Morrisons-graveMEMBERS of 60s rock legends THE DOORS lit candles on JIM MORRISON'S grave in Paris to mark the 40th anniversary of his death.


Lead singer Morrison died on July 2, 1971, at age 27 of heart failure in his bathtub in Paris.

His hedonistic, rock n roll life became a blueprint for generations of teenage rockers while his death became the subject of multiple conspiracy theories as a post-mortem (autopsy) was never carried out.

Keyboard player Ray Manzarek and guitarist Robby Krieger, lit candles at the grave while fans of Morrison paid homage by leaving flowers.
The grave at Pere Lachaise cemetery remains a pilgrimage site for fans.
