Jim Morrison
The sprawling French cemetery is home to plenty of big names (Victor Hugo, Oscar Wilde, Edith Piaf), but one American in particular continues to draw crowds. The Doors front-man died in Paris at age 27, and although no autopsy was done, most believe he died of heart arrest associated with drug use. When Morrison’s most recent grave marker was made, his father requested the Greek inscription: ΚΑΤΑ ΤΟΝ ΔΑΙΜΟΝΑ ΕΑΥΤΟΥ. The phrase translates to “according to his own demon,” although the intended meaning was “faithful to his own spirit.”
