The Last Known Pictures Of Jim Morrison, Taken Five Days Before His Death

Jim Morrison's life came to an end far too early, his heart stopped by an apparent heroin overdose, but French law enforcement officials didn't perform an autopsy so we'll never know for sure how the Lizard King died.

All we have to tell us about those fateful days before Jim slipped away in the bathtub are a series of candid photos taken by friend Alain Ronay.

Jim looks clean shaven and happy as he shares some intimate moments with Pamela Courson in Saint-Leu-d’Esserent on June 28th, 1971, a far cry from the image of a dark and disturbed man painted by the press after his death.

Jim, Jimi and Janis all died that year. It was my first year at college and I adored Janis. She's been the only 'idol' I ever had and it hurt so bad when I heard she had died. 1971 was a rough year for music, IMO. We lost too many of our great musicians.
