RIS on Saturday – Reese was the only place for Jim Morrison’s fans.

Fifty years after his death at the age of 27, lovers of rock music from France and around the world came to the Pere-Lachais Cemetery, where the captain of the Doors in East Rice was buried. Many brought candles and pictures, and some lit incense near his grave.

“Silence and Doors have been our heroes since our childhood. It is an honor to be here and to celebrate the 50th anniversary of his death today,” said Dutuar Platzek.

The 50-year-old fan traveled from Halle, Germany, with his childhood friend Matias Bartel. The two had not returned to Pere-Lahiz Cemetery for more than 25 years.

Over the years, the place has become a shrine for Morrison fans, known for its dark lyrics, wavy locks, leather nts, steel views and theatrical stage. He performed “Doors” on several major hits between 1965 and 1971, including “Don’t Burn My Fire,” “Hello, I Love You,” “Touch Me,” and “Riders in the Storm.”

Michelle Campbell lived and worked in photography in Texas when Morrison died in 1971 at the age of 21. His first “July 3” – the anniversary of Morrison’s death – was 1989. There was no sign in the tomb at the time and the fan had made a wooden cross.

He moved to Rice and came to Per-Lahore almost every year with photographs of his fans, who became friends with Morrison’s tomb and many others.

“(It’s like) people sit on couches in someone’s picture, not in the grave, just talking and meeting each other,” he recalled. “It was really nice … I still come as much as I can because it’s always so great.”

Collin Amblard drives a seven-hour drive from his hometown of Domanisi in the French Alps to visit the tomb. The 21-year-old told the Associated Press that “being here, remembering Jim Morrison … showing that he hasn’t forgotten her is very emotional.”

“We recognize his talent and that he was a great person, that he was a real genius,” he said.

Like many other fans, Amblard also plans to spend his other time with Morrison as he overdoses on heroin from his art to his former nightclub from the time he lived on the riser.

Born in Melbourne, Florida in 1943, Morrison was the son of a U.S. Navy officer and moved steadily as a child, growing up in Florida, Virginia, Texas, New Mexico and California.

He said he saw in his childhood the aftermath of a horrific car accident at a Native American sanctuary, which later became a major event in his lyrics and poetry. An avid reader, he was greatly influenced by the philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche, the poet Arthur Rimba, and the surrealist playwright Antonin Artaud.

In 1965, while living in a bohemian neighborhood on Venice Beach in Los Angeles and frequently carrying an LSD, he and a UCLA film student, keyboardist Ray Manzarek, founded Doors. Soon guitarist Robbie Krieger and drummer John Densmore also joined.

Morrison and the Doors lit up brightly, releasing “Doors” and “Wonderful Days” in 1967, “Soft Rade” in 1968, and “Morrison Hotel” in 1970. Morrison’s dynamic presence on stage was fully demonstrated during his appearance on The The. At the Ed Sullivan Show ”and the Hollywood Bowl.

But when Morrison became addicted to alcohol, the group quickly burned down. He has twice been arrested for antiques on stage, including at a Miami concert where he was convicted of indecent assault and insult. He received rdon after his death in 2010.

Morrison released his final album with The Doors in 1971, entitled LA Woman, and soon moved to Rice.

There, on July 3, 1971, he was found dead in the bathroom. An autopsy was not performed and the cause of his death is being debated.

He was one of the few rock stars like Janice Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Kurt Cobain and Rolling Stones Brian Jones.

His status as a legendary figure for rock fans has never diminished. On the 20th anniversary of his death in 1991, the biopic film “Doors,” directed by Oliver Stone, was screened, in which Val Kilmer played the role of Morrison.
