The Doors? Jim Morrison? He's a drunken buffoon posing as a poet. Give me the guess who. They got the courage to be drunken buffoons, which makes them poetic.

Jim Morrison was amazing, a great poet, no matter how high and drunk he was. He also had a great voice. Find me a better poet in a blues band today.

WAY overrated. He just talk on the same fu**ing beat in all of his songs. I just can't listen to The Doors. Like their best song is Riders On The Storm, and the Snoop Dogg remix is better...

A recent study shows that 8% of teenagers listen to nothing but music with guitars in it. Put this in your sig if you're one of the 92% who aren't close-minded morons.

He was in Wayne's World 2. Now if that's not cool I don't know what is....

Just to make it clear, that wasn't ACTUALLY him. Though I'm sure you knew that and just worded that in a bad way.

right, like the band your in is any better

to everyone saying he was a drunken/high buffon, I'd like to inform you guys it was the 60's, so saying an artist was drunk/high is like saying an artist was breathing. A good 80 % of the musicians/poets/artists were doing drugs. its a fact. oh well, get over it.

Morrison read and wrote poetry before he did drugs, he improvised many lyrics/poems on stage, is a major influence on songwriters/poets, and along with Manzareks organ lines defined the sound of the Doors.

So Morrison was NOT overated, he was brilliant....the poet of his generation.
#21
have you ever read his poetry? not just his lyrics? He was an accual poet not just a lyrics writter.
#23
I still think that him, jimi, and janis are still in the amazon living from the land...

My feet back up on the bank,

Morrison was a genius as well. He had a 150+ IQ at 15, and I'm sure it was far higher (no pun intended) by the time he died.

And rock_and_blues hit the nail on the head.

EVERYONE was on something in the rock world, hell even the Christians were doing something (I'm looking at you Bob Denver. ).

Hendrix is considered a poet, he was on acid, pot, and multiple other psychoactives. Lennon was considered a poet, he was on acid and drank, even heroin later on. Grace Slick was on who knows what, and she's considered a poet.

It was the 60s. So to say he was just drunk and retarded is like saying the 60s sucked entirely, and are completely overrated.

I did a report on him Sophomore year and so I had to read a lot of his poetry. I didnt really find it that interesting it seemed kinda boring to me. However, it is really deep and I only like a certain depth in the lyrics. He does seem like a cool guy though, I''d like to go drinking with him if he was still here.
