    Thanks for the link. 🙂

    Morrison's representatives and Densmore did not approve the use of the name. Ringo can't go out and find three guys and call his band the Beatles either!

    In all fairness, Ringo isn't going to. He didn't write the Beatles' music save for a scant few songs. The same can't be said of Manzarek and Krieger.

    Yeah, Morrison wrote the words but if words really mattered then poetry readings would sell out arenas. It's all about the music.

    Was the music all that great?

    The Doors -- for me -- was about the wild 'poet' (The Beatles had better lyrics) and his stooges tinkling along in the background. I can't be bothered with them anymore.

    The doors were unique. You don't find bands with their sound with such a broad list of good songs. One of the few bands you can pop in an entire CD and not have to skip any songs.

    I can replay their songs in my head. They all seem remote and beside the point.

    Bah ...

    The music? Musically there are some classics: Roadhouse Blues, LA Woman, People Are Strange...even Light My Fire. A small part of the Doors' music could be considered timeless.

    The Doors were not just Jim Morrison. Robbie contributed to many lyrics. Both Robbie and Ray made the true music and John was an excellent drummer. The Doors were four people (plus the unknown bassist!), not Jim Morrison.

    That electric piano made the doors as much as Morrison did.

    Agreed. L.A. Woman and People are Strange. Timeless.
