I totally agree.  Such a bad sound...and such a rabid following!  I'm always straining to hear something deep and meaningful when I hear a Doors song come on because I assume I've missed something and eventually I'll get it.  But no, nothing.  Songs are as vacuous as Jim Morrison's soul.

The only Doors song I've ever heard that's actually entertaining to listen to. Jim Morrison's half-drunk bad lounge-singer voice is perfect for the instrumentals and overall theme.  Sounds like something you'd hear in the Blue Room Lounge at the Holiday Inn outside of Fresno in the late 70's.  You can play this one again, Bill.  Keep the rest of the insipid, drolling Doors repertoire to yourself, thanks.

Yeah, Jim even said Robby was great. I think that was after he punched Robbie in the eye, though.{#Fight}

Q - Didn't you appear with a black eye onstage at one point? What was that all about?

A - Oh yeah. I got into a fight with Jim. They wanted to put makeup on, but I said no, maybe 20 years from now somebody will be interested and ask me about that.

Q - Now there's a question you don't get asked too much.

A - Believe it or not, that's one of the most asked questions, (laughs) Everybody always thinks I'll ask him about that. Somebody just asked me about that the other day.

obviously you weren't around yet, but that's the way people talked then. I too, have always known that Morrison was shitty poet, but at least he had the guts to say what before had been kept silent. Tame by today's standards, but he was in serious trouble with the obscenity police. Killed him. Killed him. BTW "light my fire" was written by Robbie Krieger, guitar god.
