This would probably be better in another section but I felt as if it'd get more exposure in this area anyways. Especially since this is the only place I ever check too heheh.

I'm wondering if anyone knows exactly where he is buried. I read online somewhere that he is buried in Paris but I could've sworn he was buried elsewhere and near Berlioz. Sooooo any information would be great, thanks!

Yea, for some reason though I thought he was buried in Brussels. I guess just some weird information I've heard in the past that has me confused.

Yes, I've been to his grave and had my photo taken at that tenor sax plaque: definitely a highlight of the trip....It's in Pere-Lachaise on the far, far end of the cemetary...worth a special visit....

There's a sort of monument to him at his boyhood home in Belgium...I remember reading about it in Saxophone Journal way back when, but IIRC, it's just a stained glass window and a sign...

Hey no grave looting guys!!!

what if a secret hi-tech sax that was built by grey aliens is actually hidden inside his tombstone?? I think I read that once on the cover of Sun magazine...

I've long held the view that if Adolph could only have invented one sax, for me it would have to be the tenor. Much as I love my baritone. Thank you Adolph Sax.
