Jim Morrison

The explosively wild front-man of "The Doors," Jim Morrison was known for his charismatic personality and off-the-cuff poetry he'd improvise during his 1960s live sets. At just 27, the rock legend died, reportedly from a heroin overdose, while in Paris, where his body now rests.

His gravesite, located in the "Poet's Corner" of the Pere Lachaise Cemetery, is one of the city's most-visited tourist attractions. Fans from across the world pay tribute daily with flowers and poems; some have left behind graffiti and drug paraphernalia, causing cemetery officials to erect metal barricades around the plot.
