Mr. Mojo Risin'

Listening to some songs by The Doors this morning, it occurred to me that while their songs are firmly rooted in classic rock, there's some of the same quality of "texture", an ethereal, atmospheric effect, in their songs as in some trip-hop stuff, like Portishead. If Jim Morrison were alive today, I wonder if he'd be into trip-hop.

The Doors contributed to pushing rock's boundaries early on. If Morrison had lived, I think he might have gotten to enjoy the fruits of experiments by people like himself, Frank Zappa, Captain Beefheart, Brian Eno, etc.
