The Doors Quarterly Magazine #24 was
published on August 19, 1991, just a few weeks
after that fatal July 3, 1991. So I was able to write how
I remembered that day pure mess
and chaos. Screaming drunk people had to be chased away
from the grave by the National
Guards through the garbage, broken bottles and mud they
left behind on July 2. On July 3
it became even worse - after the cemetery officials had
decided to keep the gates closed.
You cant imagine how weird that scene was like.
Early afternoon about 2000 people (most
of them drunk as hell) were there trying to get in,
knocking at the gates using branches
and bottles, and a huge fire got lit. When they crashed a
wrecked car into the main gate,
it broke and the Parisian riot police tried to chase
everybody off the square - a few "fans"
got busted, a lot got seriously hurt ... Read the report
I wrote when I got back from Paris on
page 5 and 6 of DQ 24; Ive also tried to analyze
the big question, "Why did this happen?".
Ive added a few newspaper articles, too.
One of the reasons for the incident was (in my opinion)
the Oliver Stone movie, and
Patricia Kennealy-Morrison sent me an exclusive article
for this DQ setting the record
straight concerning her part in the movie.
A first attempt at a complete Doors LP discography is
followed by reviews of new books
(Densmore, Lisciandro, Seymore and Wincentsen). After
that you should definitely read
Patricia Kennealys famous Jazz & Pop article, 'When
the Musics Over An Audience with
The Doors'. Also, find Part Two of my L.A. Guide for
Doors Fans. This takes you around West
Hollywood and is a follow-up of the guide in DQ 23.
See DQs usual Notes from the Underground and a few
reviews of official releases. Doors
fan Ko Lankester continues with a nice article on The
Doors after Morrison, while I myself
wrote a report on how I searched for Pamelas grave.
Of course I couldnt review my own book ('Doors'
Heel Verlag) which had recently come
out in May 1991, so I decided to add just the press
release written by the publisher.
Dont forget to read the news from 1991 ... what an
exciting and dramatic year it was!
There wasnt any free poster with it but a fine free
