Whoa, this thread is already starting to get out of hand! Believe me, when it comes to music, I can completely understand passionate viewpoints, because I’ll be the first one to admit that when it comes right down to it, I’m basically a stubborn musical snob, but seriously this ain’t worth it. One of the biggest reasons I generally don’t talk about music on this site is because music is my life; it’s like religion to me (and we all know what happens when people start talking about religion and politics around here).
Being a musician, and having played, studied, and majored in music for a very long time; I know that I have very different views than the majority out there, and it’s not worth my time and energy to get all worked up about things, bands, or styles of music that I personally think are c$@p. One of the greatest things about music is that there is something out there for everyone! Trust me, I’ve had people say the most idiotic things about people, or bands, or a style of music I listen to, and I’ve been so furious that I’ve just wanted to unload, but you know what, it ain’t worth it! No matter what style or styles of music you like, or who your favorite bands are; there’s always going to be people out there that don’t agree. Sometimes you just need to take a deep breath and chill out!
Your view is not wanted here quite frankly. This was a post to remember someone great
You do have a valid point here Darous, if Plastic had nothing nice to say, then he should have just stayed away from the thread, but he is entitled to his own opinion even if you don’t agree. However, getting this worked up, and threatening someone with physical violence over something this trivial is hardly the way to go.
Now that I’ve spoken my peace, I do need to pay my respects to Mr. Morrison, and The Doors. When I first started playing guitar, and writing songs a long time ago, originally The Doors were one of my biggest influences. I don’t listen to very many rock bands these days, but The Doors are one of the few rock bands that I still like, and can listen to and enjoy. Yes Ray and Robbie were the true brains behind the band (you can’t give all the credit to Ray, because Robbie wrote a ton of their songs, including some of their biggest hits), but without Jim, The Doors would have been nothing.
I’m not saying that I condone, or care for everything Jim did in his personal life, but I do think he was a talented visionary, and he was definitely one heck of a front man! I don’t think he was the greatest singer of all time or anything either, but I do think he had a unique, great voice. Again though, it was Jim’s passion, personality, looks, and charisma that made The Doors. He gave them their identity. He may have been over the top, but he put The Doors over the top!
Regardless of what anyone else says, The Doors are undeniably one of the greatest and influential rock bands of all time, and Jim had a big hand in that. So wherever you are Jim, break on through!
