My friend and I are having a debate about who is cooler, Jimi Hendrix or Jim Morrison. I am a massive fan of both, but I think Hendrix was cooler. I believe Morrison was more of an intellectual and less for the whole scene, whereas Hendrix thrived when the spotlight was on him.

I figured the Pit is capable of answering the question.

If Jim Morrison was an intellectual, then I'm ****ing Noam Chomsky.

Studies have shown that 92% of guitar players are close-minded. Copy this into your signature if you're part of the 8% who enjoy rap.

as far as who was cooler, hendrix hands down. morrison wasn't necessarily cool as much as he was a mystery to the people in the late sixties. but in all fairness you can't accurately compare the coolness of the two. they were each very cool in their own ways.

I saw Jim and Jimi the other day, they were in a DirecTV blimp that was being flown by Walt Disney. We named it Jim Morrison.
Therefore Jim Morrison wins
BRIAN. SCHNEIDER.

I gotta go with Morrison on this one. He can scream like a beast taking it up the butt from a transvestite. Which i'm assuming that if I heard that, it would sound like Jim Morrison's scream.

Jimi may have been much better at everything, but I just think the Doors music is much cooler, so Morrison.
#21
Jimi was awesome. Morrison was something else entirely. And of course, since no one in this generation knows too much about Morrison, they'll vote Hendrix.

Well.. Morrison DID try to kill his girlfriend.. But Hendrix played a real instrument and isn't over rated.. so.. Jimi.

Jim Morrison I say. But I am reading a book about him right now, it's pretty good. There aren't many votes for him though, come on Morrison supporters, vote.

Also, I have nothing against Jimi, I just think Morrison was cooler.

EDIT: And Jim Morrison was an intellectual, just a usually drugged up intellectual. He was very clever though, he had hundreds of books, and could tell anybody the first line from any of the hundreds he owned.

Schizophrenia rap?

I have schizophrenia, I talk to myself,
People startin' to doubt my mental health,
Maybe someday I'll get the help I need,
But till then don't be blamin' mah weed.

Morrison got high, had a lot of sex, influenced just about every front man since, had better hair, also sang the blues.. had his own poetry books.

But the part I bolded, this part is especially important. Morrison lit a house on fire. With his girlfriend locked inside.

Syd Barrett > Hendrix=Morrison

Syd barely knew what he was doing on Madcap Laughs, Barrett and Opel, though.
