I remember my breathing becoming labored and heavy from the myriad of instances of opioid and alcohol use as I lay soaking in warm water of the still Paris night.
I ran away to Paris as I wrote in the song “The Soft Parade” to find myself again away from the spotlight of fame— “Can you give me sanctuary, I need a place to hide, a place for me to hide.”

The hot warm rush of the drug hit my bloodstream as I climbed through the string of multicolored beads strung artfully around the bathtub. The next thing I remember was looking over my body as my girlfriend Pamela Courson tried desperately to revive me. All I could remember thinking is, The music is definitely now over
