• I don't believe his body was ever moved from it's resting place but I could be wrong. I'm fairly sure it isn't back in the US.
  • "Grave site Morrison is buried in the famous Père Lachaise cemetery in eastern Paris. The grave was unmarked until French officials placed a shield over it, which was subsequently stolen in 1973. In 1981, Croatian sculptor Mladen Mikulin placed a bust of Jim's head on top of the gravestone to commemorate the 10th anniversary of Jim's death. The bust remained until 1988, when it was stolen. After that, the new headstone with Morrison's name was erected. The Greek inscription on the square headstone reads in capital letters ΚΑΤΑ ΤΟΝ ΔΑΙΜΟΝΑ ΕΑΥΤΟΥ. The inscription means "True to his own spirit". The literal meaning is "according to his own demon"; "demon" in Ancient Greek means "god". Which means he lived and died according to his own personal beliefs. It also implies a minor deity, attendant spirit, luck, fortune, "guiding star" and the like, with no negative or pejorative connotations. Various erroneous interpretations of the inscription have been proposed, including, "down with his own demons" (presumably in Hell), "burnt by his demons", "with the devil himself."" Source:
