Last week Leslie and I took a stroll around the beautiful and haunting Père Lachaise Cemetery in Paris. It’s the final resting place of many literary and creative luminaries, such as Oscar Wilde, Alexander Dumas et al. But the guy whose tomb I wanted to visit was the Lizard king himself, James Douglas Morrison. A fully paid up member of the ‘Dead at 27’ club, Jim Morrison was an icon of the liberal and chaotic sixties lifestyle, yet he could not have chosen a more peaceful and inspiring place in which to spend eternity.
Take a walk with me on my ‘Ode to the Lizard King.’
