Morrison’s ghost startles historian

LOS ANGELES: Tragic rock legend Jim Morrison ghost has left a music historian spooked after making an appearance in a photo taken at The Doors singer’s grave.

The 1997 picture of Brett Meisner was taken by the rocker’s grave at the Pere Lachaise cemetery in Paris, France - but the writer didn’t notice the Morrison-like apparition behind him until he revisited the snap in 2002, and posted the shot online.

The photo has been authenticated by experts and is now being used to promote new book Ghosts Caught on Film 2: Photographs of the Unexplained.

But Meisner now states he regrets going to visit Morrison’s grave because he has been plagued by eerie events ever since.

He tells Britain’s Daily Express newspaper that his marriage broke down and a close friend died of a drug overdose, and now he’s become a target for Morrison fans who insist the rock star’s ghost is haunting them.

He says, “At first it was sort of interesting to see how many people felt a spiritual bond with Jim and the photo, but now the whole vibe seems negative.”
