After his death in Paris, Jim Morrison was buried without fanfare on July 7, 1971, in Pere Lachaise's Division Six. Fan farewells have followed for years. It's said that Morrison's grave is the fourth most popular atraction in Paris; folks with family interred nearby asked that the traffic-attracting and oft-grafitti desecrated grave be moved when its 30-year lease was up, but Paris officials decreed that Morrison will rest in peace at Pere Lachaise.

- Pere Lachaise history nugget: Some magick-making folks make pilgrimages to spiritualist Allan Kardec's grave in section forty four. And some believe that the vampire Lestat (Tom Cruise's "Interview With a Vampire" character in the movie made from Anne Rice's book) is interred here in a tomb engraved with the name of one Prince Armand.
