Yes, Danzig's voice does sound a lot like Jim Morrison's (especially in this song) but again, another style of music. The same goes for Nick Cave.
Their way of singing however, definitely is heavely influenced by Jim Morrison. Probably the reason why I don't like either of them. It's not original, they're copycats trying to make his thing their thing.
The sound of the Doors is very unique. You only have to hear the first few notes of a song to know it's them, even if it's a song you don't know.

That doesn't mean I don't like a good cover though, I look at covers as tributes. People Are Strange by Echo & the Bunnymen, for instance, is just awesome.

And since you mentioned them, what about Bauhaus' version of Ziggy Stardust? \:\-\)
