On July 3rd, Jim Morrison the “King of Orgasmic Rock” was found dead in Paris from apparent “heart failure”. Since no autopsy was ever performed, there’s been years of debate over what the actual cause of death is, because of the late singer’s addiction to drugs and alcohol.
One week prior to his death, Morrison took a trip to Saint-Leu-d’Esserent with Pamela Courson, and their photographer friend Alain Ronay, — looking happier and healthier than most would expect. Photos Ronay took from the day have just surfaced, from that day on June 28th 1971, and they may be the last known photos of him.
