The Doors – Take It As It Comes.

album-no-one-here-gets-out-aliveJim Morrison joined Courson in Paris in March 1971. They took up residence in the city in a rented apartment on the rue Beautreillis (in the 4th arrondissement of Paris on the Right Bank), and went for long walks throughout the city,admiring the city’s architecture. During this time, Morrison shaved his beard and lost some of the weight he had gained in the previous months.His last studio recording was with two American street musicians—a session dismissed by Manzarek as “drunken gibberish”. The session included a version of a song-in-progress, “Orange County Suite”, which can be heard on the bootleg The Lost Paris Tapes. Morrison died on July 3, 1971 at age 27.In the official account of his death, he was found in a Paris apartment bathtub (at 17–19 rue Beautreillis, 4th arrondissement) by Courson.Pursuant to French law, no autopsy was performed because the medical examiner stated that there was no evidence of foul play.The absence of an official autopsy has left many questions regarding Morrison‘s cause of death.In Wonderland Avenue, Danny Sugerman discussed his encounter with Courson after she returned to the United States. According to Sugerman’s account, Courson stated that Morrison had died of a heroin overdose, having insufflated what he believed to be cocaine. Sugerman added that Courson had given him numerous contradictory versions of Morrison‘s death, saying at times that she had killed Morrison, or that his death was her fault. Courson’s story of Morrison‘s unintentional ingestion of heroin, followed by his accidental overdose, is supported by the confession of Alain Ronay, who has written that Morrison died of a hemorrhage after snorting Courson’s heroin, and that Courson nodded off instead of phoning for medical help, leaving Morrison bleeding to death.
