A Curious Convergence

Via Obituary Forum:

It has been nearly 40 years since the rocker Jim Morrison died. But this week — the day after Morrison would have turned 65 — he appeared in The Times in two obituaries: his father’s and that of the owner of the Los Angeles club, Whisky A Go Go, where Morrison’s band, the Doors, got its big break.

George S. Morrison died at 89 on Nov. 17; Elmer Valentine died at 85 on Dec. 3. Jim Morrison, known to these men in such different ways, died at 27 on July 3, 1971. [Link]

It's said that Morrison's grave is the fourth most popular atraction in Paris...
Pere Lachaise cemetery, one of the top 5 free things to do in Paris for student travelers.

I have visited it and it's truly an amazing cemetery.
