its his muse

limar2030Jul 28, 2010

That was his muse, his main girl all the others where just groupies including YOU PATRICIA. If Jim was happy that should make all of us happy. We love u Jim always and forever.

sorryJul 23, 2010

jim loves pam!And pam loves jim!unfortunatly she dated John densmore before jim

Marcia ForceJul 17, 2010

Jim did not know address because it was not Pam`s place. Jim (one can tell if you pay attention) loved Pam she was his muse, many songs and poetry he wrote was about her, despite the drug factor which was so easy attainable in the 60,s (I was there believe me it was everywhere and more potent than today`s market)Pam loved Jim too. No more can be said just that they both are missed terribly by many.

Pamela was a groupie!! She dated John Densmore before Jim. John wanted her really bad, that`s why he never got along with Jim!!

WHo was Jim with when he died? Pam. Who did he live in Paris with in the end? Pam. There`s no question who he loved, no question who his wife was. He allowed Pam to have his name. Other didn`t take his name until after his death, after he couldn`t say Hey, you`re not my wife. Pam was... `nuff said. :)

When he ordered the whiskey, he was at his publicist`s house, Diane Gardiner. Read the Ben Fong Torres interview. Diane was a neighbor of Pam`s -- it wasn`t Pam`s house!
