Patricia Kennealy’s “relationship” with Jim Morrison is summed up in twelve seconds in the Doors-approved documentary When You’re Strange:
“Pam Courson returns to L.A. from a vacation in Paris. She discovers Jim sleeping with a woman who claims they were married in a Pagan witch ceremony. But the witch flies back to New York and Jim goes back to Pam.
Pam still envisions a life for the two of them, which starts with Jim leaving The Doors.”
They don’t even mention Kennealy by name.
Perhaps Kennealy’s behavior leading up to the time Pamela discovered Kennealy in her home with Jim had something to do with that.
Patricia Kennealy’s aggressive attempts to breakup Jim and Pamela’s relationship and forcefully elbow her way into Jim Morrison’s life obviously did not work.
Much to Miss Kennealy’s dismay. Her vicious, jealous and very obvious dismay.
This documentary was made and released after Kennealy’s “memoir” flopped and after Kennealy posted a steady stream of libelous, self-serving and delusional online rants on her now-defunct website.
Kennealy repeatedly made public attacks on the late Pamela Courson and her grieving family and bragged about sending roses to The Doors’ Rock-n-Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony and then signing the card from Jim Morrison and herself when Kennealy was well aware that Jim Morrison’s sister would be attending the ceremony and accepting the Hall of Fame award on her late brother’s behalf.
Miss Kennealy at her creepy and mean-spirited and best. Despite her claims, the flowers and card were not meant as a kindness, this was clearly an act of vengeance.
Something involving Jim Morrison’s brother Andy, a fake letter that was supposed to be delivered to Jim Morrison’s parents, handwriting analysis, Kennealy’s failed attempt to publish and profit from letters and poems that turned out to be forged???
It would seem that the twelve seconds discussing “the witch” was Jim Morrison’s former band mate’s way of responding to Kennealy and they made their point.
When You’re Strange was released in 2009. As fate would have it, that is the same year Kennealy agreed to an interview where she again asserted her thoroughly discredited claims and went on about all of the “ignoramuses” who dare to think that she is perhaps less than honest when it comes to the topic of Jim Morrison.
Coincidence? Probably not.
“Patricia Kennealy wrote a book where she viciously murdered the other Doors by filling their guts with bees, de-boning them alive, or flaying them and having their skins turned into a saddle… for pretty much ignoring her. That’s not a sign that someone doesn’t have issues.”
“Pamela mela was this adorable little waif from Orange County, cute as a bug. She came up to Hollywood to find herself and she found Jim. She was clearly his soulmate.”
