Dave James Posted February 7, 2010 Author Report Share Posted February 7, 2010 Your assertion that The Doors are dated is a tough charge to refute. The fact that they have not made a new recording in almost 40 years is, indeed, a roadblock to relevance. However, outside of the Dead and maybe, Santana, I'm not sure your argument isn't that The Doors are dated but that any music from that era is dated. I've been around the block enough times to realize that my opinion is only one of many, so I do respect your position. After all, disagreement is part of what makes music fun. All I'm saying with regard to The Doors is don't base decisions on their studio work. That's a poor representation of their viability. Much like the Dead, their power, credibility and relevance derive from the legacy of their live recordings. That's the way I choose to view them. But, If you absolutlely demand currency, look at Morrison as the original tea bagger; he's mad as hell and he isn't going to take it any more. Or, if you like, think of him as an early environmentalist based on lyrics like this; "What have they done to the earth? What have they done to our fair sister?"
