frestcrallen: InmanRoshi: The longevity of the Doors is a testament to the fact that every year there's a new class of college freshmen.


//Getting rich selling intoxication and counter-culture to 18 year olds = shooting fish in a barrel.

On a whim, called into a college radio station taking requests once in my teens.  Actually got through, requested a Doors song, and got laughed off on the air.  It was my first step into the larger world of elitism and an important lesson.

Quantum Apostrophe: Yeah, but 1960s "fat".


Seriously. Morrison says he was 185 pounds and "...felt like a tank, like a large mammal."  According to Wikipedia he was 5' 11".

Were people in the 1960's that much smaller than today?

What if he lived?
Xmas special, Variety Show, the Vegas/Branson years...
He'd make Dewey Cox look tame.

I think he would have a lot of spunk left in him at 70,

But not his liver/heart.

Came here to point this out.  What people think of now as normal or "curvy" would have been a sideshow-freak monstrosity back then.  During this interview Morrison was 5'11" and 150 pounds.  His concept of fat fits our current perception of slightly thinner than average.

I can't believe I've wasted my time listening to this.  More astonishing?  It was greenlit on Fark.  Then again, I clicked on it and paid attention to it, entirely. And I took the time to post a reply on Fark about it.  So, yeah, brilliant. Jim Morrison is a FAT Gawd.  Despite being a dead drug addicted and talent-less boy, he still has the power to evoke emotions from a talented recovered female addict.

There's only one thing that makes me sad regarding Jim Morrison: the fact that there are no video recordings of the time he was acting like such a dickhole that Janis Joplin hauled off and cold-cocked him with a whiskey bottle.

whizbangthedirtfarmer: Good thing he died early, or else the Doors would've been consigned to the dustbin of shiatty late 60s acts with the rest of them.


Good thing you have all those 1-Direction MP3s cued up on your iPoop!

/Rock on, princess.

Nice try, but I'd take the Moody Blues or other bands such as ELO from that time period (and, especially, Pink Floyd).  I can do without the manufactured "deepness" of incoherent lyrics masquerading as "poems" and a tinkling of keyboards pretending to be "music."

It is for that reason I have often referred to the Doors as the Atlas Shrugged of rock...something young, impressionable people latch onto for a while but eventually discard once maturity sets in. Usually...

I dunno. I thought that, and then I just spent a time recently revisiting their 5 albums or so, and gotta say they're still good songs and great entertainment.

Problem?

The music by itself was not my focus but more the Morrison "Mystique" that people tend to go overboard with.


Your first mistake is letting other people's reverences dictate your music taste. Zappa fans are really no different.

Ya...too bad he couldn't sing.

Yeah, ELO were great in the 1960s before they released their first album in 1971.

NorCalLos: Ya...too bad he couldn't sing.


Which is why he didn't. He spoke all his lyrics (and sometimes shouted).

He was a big influence on Roger Waters.

Gosh, yeah, I mean the Doors stopped recording ... oh wait, L.A. Woman was in 1971, too?

Pink Floyd is authentically deep? I'm literally laughing out loud at you.

Compared to the Doors, yes.  If you think otherwise, then you're not really worth the effort, are you?

Thank you coming into this thread and shiatting on the Doors. I look forward to the time when I can return the favor in a Pink Floyd thread.

I wasn't aware anyone was trying to convince you of the serious introspection or social commentary evident in Roadhouse Blues. I'm still laughing that you busted out Pink Floyd. Pink Farking Floyd. Are you 14 and experiencing your first joint right now?

It's an absolute truth that all mainstream bands have no artistic merit.

No sweat.  I don't take these things seriously, and I'm far from a Pink Floyd fan.  I have one or two of their albums (I actually have more Doors CDs).  I happen to think that the Doors are only remembered because they had the good fortune for Morrison to die early.  Pink Floyd long outstayed their welcome, and released maybe three or four good albums.  Regardless, Pink Floyd's music is more complex and has better lyrics and is just ... better.  I'd rather hear Roger Watters try to sing than Jim Morrison pretending he is a guitar.
