"Le Rock and Roll Circus, 57, rue de Seine
Cela faisait trois ans que ce club était ouvert sur St-Germain. C’était l’endroit où il fallait être, le lieu où l’on pouvait rencontrer Mick Jagger, Roman Polanski, Johnny Halliday, Michel Polnareff… Il attirait les hippies, les bourgeois, et forcément les dealers qui commerçaient dehors. Le club avait recrutait un DJ, Cameron Watson, un américain du Nebraska, qui venait de déserter du Vietnam. Peu de gens pouvaient reconnaitre Jim Morrison quand il était à Paris : à cette époque sans Internet ni magazines people, les français voyaient toujours Jim comme ce rockeur à la beauté du diable. Personne ne pouvait imaginer en passant devant cet homme corpulent, avec sa grosse barbe, et ses cheveux longs, accoudé au comptoir avec une vodka, qu’il était le leader des Doors. Au début, Jim a fréquenté le Rock and Roll Circus pour pouvoir se procurer de l’héroïne pour Pamela, qui s’était fâchée avec son comte. Il fit la connaissance du DJ Cameron, avec qui il pouvait parler. Il fréquenta ce club pendant toute sa période à Paris. "
