Wikipedia Text

Pamela Susan Courson (December 22, 1946 – April 25, 1974) was a long-term companion of Jim Morrison, singer of The Doors.


Profile Bio Text
Pamela Susan Courson was born December 22, 1946 in Weed California. Though it is not clear when she first met Jim, one biography states that they met at Gazzari`s nightclub on the Sunset Strip in 1965, while Pam was an art student at Los Angeles City College. She was 19. In his 1998 memoir Light My Fire: My Life with the Doors, former keyboardist Ray Manzarek stated that Pam and a friend saw the band during their stint at the London Fog, a lesser-known nightclub, and that she was initially courted by Arthur Lee of the Californian band "Love", who brought "The Doors" to the attention of Elektra boss Jack Holzman. In any event, Jim called Pam his "cosmic mate" and dedicated his self-published books of poetry to her, as well as songs such as "Love Street". Allthough they were deeply in love, heir relationship was tumultuous and they also fought and abused each other. She was the one and only woman who could and would stand up to Jim, for she could dish it out to him as well as he could to her. They both had flings on the side with other people but still they came back to each other in the end. Allthough they never married, Pam took the name Morrison later on in their relationship. Jim even married another girlfriend, Patricia Kennealy, at an unofficial Wiccan wedding in 1970. In an interview for the book Rock Wives, Kennealy said of Courson: "I really did like her. She was nice. She wasn`t an incredibly towering intellect, but she seemed very sweet and very pretty, very California." Pam had no job or career of her own while she was with Jim, other than a brief attempt at running Themis, a fashion boutique that Morrison bought for her. On July 2, 1971 Jim and Pam went to see a movie. After the movie, they returned to their apartment in Paris. Jim went to bed and awoke sometime later coughing and complaining of chest pains. He then decided to take a bath. At approximately 5:00 a.m. on July 3, 1971, Pam found Jim dead in their bathroom. He was twenty-seven years of age. The official coroner`s report listed his cause of death as heart failure. However, despite Jim being young and of apparent good health, and the presence of blood in the water, no autopsy was performed, and questions persist over the actual cause of death. Per the stipulation in his will, which stated that he was "an unmarried person", Courson inherited his entire fortune, yet lawsuits against the estate would tie up her quest for inheritance for the next two years. After Pamela received her share of Morrison`s royalties, she never renewed contact with the remaining Doors members. She did not have long to enjoy the inheritance. After Jim`s death, Pam became a recluse, using heroin and showing signs of mental instability. On April 25, 1974, Pam died of a heroin overdose at the Los Angeles apartment she shared with two male friends. She was twenty-seven, the same age at which Jim Morrison died.

Wiki Bio Text
Jim Morrison spent the majority of his adult life with relationship with [[Pamela Courson]]. They met while young, when both were attending college,{{cite web|url=http://www.biography.com/people/jim-morrison-9415576#troubled-times-and-death|title=Troubled Times and Death|website=Biography.com|accessdate=August 27, 2016}} and she encouraged him to develop his poetry. Through to the end of his life, Courson saw Morrison as more than a rock star, but as "a great poet"; she constantly encouraged him and pushed him to write.{{cite book | first =James | last =Riordan | authorlink = | author2 = Prochnicky, Jerry | year =1991 | month = | title =Break on through: The Life and Death of Jim Morrison | chapter = | editor = | others = | edition = | publisher =[[HarperCollins]] | location =New York| isbn =0-688-11915-8 | url =| page = 95}} Courson attended his concerts, and focused on supporting Jim's career.{{Cite news|last=Hoover |first=Elizabeth D. |date=July 3, 2006 |title=The Death of Jim Morrison |url=http://www.americanheritage.com/entertainment/articles/web/20060703-jim-morrison-doors-drugs-rock-n-roll-aldous-huxley-paris-heroin-pamela-courson.shtml |publisher=''[[American Heritage (magazine)|American Heritage]]'' |accessdate=November 18, 2010 |deadurl=yes |archiveurl=https://web.archive.org/web/20100315031453/http://www.americanheritage.com/entertainment/articles/web/20060703-jim-morrison-doors-drugs-rock-n-roll-aldous-huxley-paris-heroin-pamela-courson.shtml |archivedate=March 15, 2010 }} Like Morrison, she was described by many as fiery, determined and attractive, as someone who was tough despite appearing fragile. Ray Manzarek called Pamela, "Jim's other half" and said, "I never knew another person who could so complement his bizarreness."{{cite book | first =James | last =Riordan | authorlink = | author2 = Prochnicky, Jerry | year =1991 | month = | title =Break on through: The Life and Death of Jim Morrison | chapter = | editor = | others = | edition = | publisher =[[HarperCollins]] | location =New York| isbn =0-688-11915-8 | url =| page = 472}} Courson was buried by her family as Pamela Susan Morrison, after Jim Morrison's death, despite the two having never been married. After Courson's death in 1974, and after her parents petitioned the court for inheritance of Morrison's estate, the [[probate]] court in California decided that she and Morrison had once had what qualified as a [[common-law marriage]], despite neither having applied for such status, and the common-law marriage not being recognized in California. They had previous obtained marriage licenses in Colorado in 1967 and in Los Angeles in 1968, but never legalized. https://books.google.com/books?id=7ywe3EXXKEkC&printsec=frontcover&dq=pamela+courson+jim+morrison+marriage+certificate+colorado&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwi6sYCA6unMAhUiGlIKHTVHDLYQ6AEIRDAE#v=onepage&q=pamela%20courson%20marriage%20license&f=falsehttp://www.truetrust.com/Famous_Wills_and_Trusts/Jim_Morrison_Will.pdf Morrison's will at the time of his death named Courson as the sole heir.{{cite web|url=http://www.truetrust.com/Famous_Wills_and_Trusts/Jim_Morrison_Will.pdf|format=PDF|title=Last Will and Testament of Jim Morrison|website=Truetrust.comaccessdate=2016-08-27}} The Door's manager, Bill Sibbons, claimed that Jim and Pam had taken a marriage license to Paris. http://www.doorscollectors.com/jimepam_ing.htm Morrison dedicated his published poetry books ''The Lords and New Creatures'' and the lost writings "Wilderness" to her. A number of writers have speculated that songs like "Love Street", "Orange County Suite" and "Queen of the Highway", among other songs, may have been written about her.{{cite web|url=http://www.92kqrs.com/2017/02/14/ode-to-a-deep-love/|title=Ode to a Deep Love|author=|date=|work=92KQRS.com – KQRS-FM}}{{cite book|author=Rich Weidman|title=The Doors FAQ: All That's Left to Know About the Kings of Acid Rock|url=https://books.google.com/books?id=HjPcWkEPSR8C&pg=PT210&dq=songs+about+pamela+courson|date=October 1, 2011|publisher=Backbeat Books|isbn=978-1-61713-110-3|page=210}} Though the relationship was "tumultuous" much of the time, and both also had relationships with others, they always maintained a unique and ongoing connection with one another, right up until the end.Danny Sugerman (1995).
