You could have put ANYONE in the lead role of that band of any vocal talent and The Doors would have succeeded. It was the BAND that made the songs, not Morrison.
I think you got that backwards my friend.
Jim was the band;the main draw;the mojo behind it all.
Robby Krieger is one of the worst Famous Guitarist I ever heard.
Songs like Peace Frog make me cringe.
That may be your opinion Jedi...Morrison WAS the draw. Probably because none of the other guys would whip out his schwantz while wrecked on Jack Daniels. He was a boob. A talentless hack in a band of musicians who could really play. They were, of course, NOTHING like the GD....but the 3 of them were pretty great IMO.
Krieger can hang w/ any rock guitarist you can name, brother. Probably STILL can. Very interesting style. Manzarek? Garage band? Come on, dude - he's like Phil on the keys!!!
Krieger one of the WORST famous guitarists ever????
Keith Richards, anyone????
(can't wait to see the shit I'll get for THAT one!)
