(NEWSER) - The Pere Lachaise cemetery in Paris has long been rumored to be getting tired of its most famous American resident—and the tributes his fans leave behind—but a fan in Jim Morrison's Florida birthplace says he has a new home for the the Doors singer.
John Tice, a city councilman in Melbourne, Brevard County, operates the Brevard Hall of Fame and he tells Florida Today that he plans to talk to officials in Paris about bringing Morrison's remains back to the US. Morrison "was the most popular public figure from this area, in my opinion," Tice says, adding that he "can see the Morrison display morphing into something much bigger." Tice plans to hold a fundraising drive if he gets permission to move the remains from the city where Morrison died in 1971.
