Morrison - On This Day - 48 Years Ago

On March 11, 1971, Morrison met up with Pam Courson in Paris for a Doors sabbatical; the goal, to get clean, to lose weight, to reconnect with his muse. Three months later, on the morning of his death, July 3, 1971, in their apartment at No. 17 Rue Beautreillis, Jim stayed up listening to old Doors albums, trying to suppress a coughing fit. When he came to bed, he woke Pamela, complaining that he felt sick, and when he threw up a small amount blood, Courson suggested they call a doctor. Jim, instead, asked Pam to run him a bath. The last thing she remembed hearing was Jim asking, "Are you there, Pam? Pam, are you there?" Courson awoke a little after 6am with Jim's side of the bed empty. She found him submerged in the water; a smile on his face.
