Jim Morrison Died on Nightclub Shitter: New Book Reveals

Posted By on Wed, Jul 11, 2007 at 2:40 PM

The Associated Press reports that a new book is rewriting the final hours of The Doors' singer's life.

" ... former Paris nightclub manager is telling a different story. In a new book, Sam Bernett says that Morrison died in a toilet stall of his club after what he believes was a heroin overdose."

I don't know, it sounds like he has a lot to gain with such unprovable material.

And who's this war correspondent tending bars and getting wasted in Paris? I want that job.
