Jim Morrison: July 3, 1971
Pop culture passing: Many rumors persist about when, where and how he died, and the lack of autopsy doesn't help. The official cause of death was listed as heart failure.

State of unrest: Morrison's grave is one of the top tourist attractions in Paris at the Père Lachaise Cemetery. With his fans being as free-spirited as he was, Morrison's grave is now guarded just to keep it intact. Over the years, visitors used the site as a place to party, pay their respects (sometimes with graffiti) and find souvenirs (such as a bust of the singer's).
