When the Music's Over and Summer's Almost Gone, spare a thought for Jim Morrison: forever remembered as one of the Riders on the Storm in the world of Psychedelic Rock. When Jim left for France with his L.A Woman by his side in the Indian Summer of 1971, no one could possibly have guessed he would Break On Through to the Other Side at the End of the Night in his Morrison Hotel room in Paris, after returning from a Moonlight Drive. Only earlier that day, he'd been cruising down The Soft Parade of Paris storefronts with his Wild Child L.A. girlfriend, while Waiting for the Sun to go down on the Champs de Elysee. When fans and fellow band members of The Doors heard the shocking news that Jim Morrison had died,  An American Prayer was said for him around the world in the Strange Days that followed. That wasn't The End for The Doors though, because events have now come Full Circle. The legacy of The Doors music lives on forever, and as you'll hear in the fabulous concert below,  Other Voices have carried the timeless music of Jim Morrison & The Doors well into the 21st century. So what are we waiting for..... The time to hesitate is through, no time to wallow in the mire, so come on baby, Light My FireSmile  Heart
 
 
All songs and albums in Blue Highlights by Jim Morrison and The Doors
 
The Doors of the 21st Century: L.A. Woman Live - 2004 (featuring original members of The Doors: Ray Manzarek & Robby Krieger with Ian Astbury as Jim Morrison!)

^ Just a note - it was not a hotel room in Paris. Wink

Thanks! I'll edit it, but at least it gave you a giggle. Smile
 
In my defence, it was getting pretty late by the time I'd finally finished writing, editing & colouring all of The Doors songs in. Smile

^ in recent years all sorts of live albums of the band, demos and alternative takes on songs have been released, some of them quite good, so why would i listen to Manzarek & Krieger with a Morrison imitator? Confused

I really enjoyed The Doors in the 21st Century, but if it's not your cup of tea, than that's fine by me. Hey! That rhymes! Smile

help me understand here: so you'd rather listen to Manzarek/Krieger with the guy from The Cult to a live The Doors performance with Jim Morrison? Confused

^ No, I'm not saying I'd rather have The Doors in the 21st Century instead of the original performance of The Doors with Jim Morrison, but that doesn't mean I can't enjoy a 21st century tribute concert to The Doors, featuring one half of the original band. Smile

Yes, Ian Astbury of The Cult is a Morrison imitator, but he's a very good imitator, because not only does Ian Astbury look like Jim Morrison - he sounds like Jim Morrison too. Smile

that does not answer my question. 

Why would I listen to Manzarek/Krieger with a Morrison imitator when there are live performances with Jim?

^ There's no argument from me. Why would you listen to The Doors of the 21st Century when you can listen to The Doors of the 20th Century Live at The Hollywood Bowl in 1968. Smile

Would you rather Ray Manzarek & Robby Krieger had just packed away their instruments and not bothered making a comeback at all!?? Confused

I have no problem with The Doors of the 21st Century - great to see a bit of a tribute to their wonderful music.
Great to see Ray living it up. Morrison is cool, but my favourite album of theirs is Other Voices !!

True. OV followed closely by Waiting for the Sun.
And with Full Circle, Four Billion Souls, Verdilac, The Mosquito and The Piano Bird are pure gold. There (was ?) a cool live performance from 72 posted on the toob. I think Ray f**ked up during the show. Yes, on Ships w/ Sails.
